Komaytos are Underworld enemies that debuted in the original Kid Icarus.

Physical Appearance

In the original Kid Icarus and in Uprising, Komaytos are light blue, gelatinous creatures with three pink-red spheres in the center. They have vein-like fibers connecting from the spheres to the surface of their skin, and two sets of mandibles located near the bottom.

Due to these features, Komaytos bear a striking resemblance to the Metroid from the Metroid series.

In Of Myths and Monsters, their appearance was altered to stray away from their previous form, appearing more blob-like and possessing only a single protrusion from their bodies.


Kid Icarus

A mysterious floating creature. Nobody knows where it came from. One theory has it that it came from a planet other than the Earth. It's a nasty jellyfish monster.

— Its Game Manual Description

Komaytos move in the exact same fashion as Monoeyes, where they attack Pit by ramming into him in groups of four. They can be found in the Skyworld stage.

Kid Icarus: Uprising

Komaytos behave differently from how they previously did, now gently floating towards their opponents and latching onto them to drain their life energy. Though they are invulnerable to ranged attacks, they can still be defeated with melee attacks.

Idol Description


While this creature resembles a certain alien life-form, the last Komaytos are not in captivity and Skyworld is not at peace. Stray too close and it will latch on to you, draining your life energy and restricting your movement.

  • Komaytos bear an intentional resemblance to Metroids from the Metroid series. As a result, several references are made to Metroid:
    • The Komayto's description in the original Kid Icarus manual contains the line "One theory has it that it came from a planet other than the Earth," a possible reference to the Metroid's home planet, SR388.
    • Komaytos can only be harmed by melee attacks, possibly referencing the Metroid's resilience to most weaponry.
    • During Chapter 21's Land Battle, Pit comments that "Komaytos look an awful lot like little Metroids"—a reference to both Kid Icarus's sister series and the origins of the Komayto's name.
    • The Komayto's Idol description includes the line "the last Komaytos are not in captivity and Skyworld is not at peace," parodying the opening line from Super Metroid, "The last Metroid is in captivity. The galaxy is at peace..."
      • The Komayto's Idol description also states "this creature resembles a certain alien life-form," referring to the Metroids.
