Ridley (Metroid)

, also known by his aliases Geoform 187 and The Cunning God of Death, is the primary villain of the Metroid series, despite not technically acting as the main antagonist in the individual games he appears in. He is a draconic extraterrestrial that acts as Samus Aran's archenemy, due to his attack on her homeworld and subsequent killing her parents; despite being destroyed numerous times by her, he is always revived by the Space Pirates continuously feeding him Bio-Matter (which is live flesh and blood). Originally appearing as a subordinate of Mother Brain, the primary antagonist of multiple titles in the Metroid series, he appears in Metroid Prime and Prime 3 by himself in his Meta Ridley form. Despite his monstrous appearance, he is revealed to be very intelligent and capable of speech in the Metroid e-manga, though he does not speak in the Metroid video games.
