[[caption-width-right:240:Left: Dachoras (Adult and Infant). Right: Etecoons.]]


Added DiffLines:

A group of friendly aliens introduced in ''VideoGame/SuperMetroid'', who taught Samus how to use the wall jump and Shinespark features of her power suit and Speed Booster.
----
* AlienAnimals: The Etecoons are effectively alien monkeys with [[YouGottaHaveBlueHair green/blue]] fur with a capacity for wall-jumping, and the Dachora is a bipedal alien ostrich that can run as fast as Samus can with her Speed Booster. They're implied to be {{Intelligent Gerbil}}s, as well, [[spoiler:as they are capable of piloting spacecraft, both to escape Zebes and to save Samus.]]
* ChekhovsGunman: They reappear in ''VideoGame/MetroidFusion'', having avoided being infected by the X parasites, and get allowed on Samus' gunship by Adam. [[spoiler: After the final boss, they rescue Samus by piloting her gunship.]]
* {{Sidequest}}: If you deviate off the beaten path in ''Super'' [[spoiler:while Zebes is exploding]] to go back to the room where the Bombs were acquired, the Dachora and Etecoons are trapped inside. Shoot out the opposite wall to make an escape route for them and it very slightly changes the ending.

Samus Aran Aran's younger brother, whose whereabouts are unknown.



* CanonDiscontinuity: Solomon was only mentioned in Blood of the Chozo, a non-canon interactive story that ran for Nintendo Power Source. It was said he was four years old, 2 years younger than Samus, and his whereabouts are unknown. This contradicts the manga, where Samus was three years old when the Space Pirates destroyed her home, meaning Solomon's existence is no longer probable.
