Puffer is an enemy species in the Metroid series, notably Metroid Prime (and it's pinball styled remake Metroid Prime Pinball for the Nintendo DS). It has a uniqe form of self-defense where, if an enemy approches, it will release a form of apparently poisonous gas. If shot, it will explode, which will release all of its gas, thus heavily harming anyone close to it.

It's certainly not a very feared among others around it, including Samus Aran who can quickly disspose of one by shooting it with any of her weapons.

Similar enemies have appeared in the game's sequels, which include Metroid Prime 2: Echoes and Metroid Prime 3: Corruption.
