( Kraid's Lair )

( Super Metroid Boss Battle )
The second most well known space pirate. It's a shame he was cut out of Metroid Prime. And it's a shame they didn't search for any spots in Prime 2 and 3 for him.
I think he would have made a better boss in Brawl than having Ridley TWICE... ( granted it was Meta Ridley the second time, it still stinks )
...Man Kraid is a hard little bugger in the original Metroid.
