Sylux as he appears in Metroid Prime Hunters
|First game||Metroid Prime Hunters|
Sylux was introduced in Metroid Prime Hunters for the Nintendo DS. It truly hates Samus Aran and the Galactic Federation. During the opening scene of the game, you can see the hunter kill three Galactic Federation troopers for some unknown reason. The ship that it rides on is known as the Delano 7. Like every other hunter in the video game, Sylux also has an alternate form, the Lockjaw. This form allows it to place traps that can heavily damage its opponents when a triangle of bombs is formed around the opponent. Its weapon of choice, the Shock Coil, not only damages the enemy greatly, but the damage is drained and replenishes Sylux's health. It possesses no charge attack.
While not confirmed, it is thought that Sylux is probably a human. One reason for this is that its body porportions and overall shape resembles that of a human's.
In Metroid Prime 3: Corruption, a ship very similar to Sylux's ship can be seen at the end of the 100% completion video, where it follows Samus' ship into warp speed.
Super Smash Bros. series
In Super Smash Bros. Brawl for the Wii, a trophy of Sylux and the other bounty hunters featured in the game can be collected. A sticker of it is also in the game, and raises the attack of a character by 12 (can be placed on any character's trophy). The following is its trophy description in the game:
- "A skilled marksman and bounty hunter experienced in espionage skills such as scouting and tracking. While much of its background remains a mystery, it is clear that it hates Samus and the Federation. Sylux uses the Shock Coil, an experimental Federation-made weapon that continually drains energy from enemies and refills its own."
