Beetoms are very curious creatures resembling crickets. Very much like Metroids, they will latch onto your body and not let go until they are destroyed. Beetom's legs allow them to jump great distances, which also helps propel themselves to latch onto their prey. When devouring, a Beetom's singular eye will change from green to red. One Beetom isn't much of a threat, but when encountering several at once, extreme caution is advised.
Beetoms cannot be killed with Beams. They must either be shot with a Missile or Bombed. If one latches on to you, immediately roll into a ball and lay a Bomb.
Beetoms can also hide inside of destroyable tiles.
Though they aren't nearly as strong, Beetoms share an extremely similar attack pattern to Metroids.
