- Ridley's Lair
Desgeegas are a more evolved species of the Sidehopper family. They are stronger and faster than Sidehoppers, and cause more damage if they come in contact with Samus. Desgeegas have very dangerous, spiky barbs growing from their large legs, and can jump much higher than their Kraid cousins. They use their thick, clawed feet to soften the blow of their high jumps. Desgeegas have an extremely high blood temperature, which allows them to thrive in hot, volcanic areas.
Use missiles against Desgeegas. Ice Beam only delays their aggression.
Though the Desgeega shares part of its name with the Geega, they are completely unrelated creatures.
