Baristutes are large, green enemies that Samus Aran encounters on Zebes and the Bottle Ship. They share many traits with Sidehoppers and Dessgeegas, and it is plausible that they form an evolutionary chain.
Baristutes attack through charging back and forth to ram Samus, as well as leaping into the air to fall back down and crush whatever is underneath it. It is also able to use its legs to kick Samus if she is near, and can spit out a substance that is mucus-like at Samus to immobilize her. Compared to its relatives, it is also very durable and resistant to Samus's weapons.
