Kid Icarus: a game about Metroids and nudity

Did you know that you actually fight Metroids in Kid Icarus? (Although they are called Komayto instead.) The manual theorizes that they may have come from another planet. Apparently, Komayto means “baby Metroid” but I can’t say for certain.

What’s even more shocking about Kid Icarus is that the game contains nudity. The syrens in the final level are topless. While it’s not overly obvious by looking at the sprites, Nintendo made things perfectly clear for us in the manual.

  1. “Kometo,” which is the Japanese name for these beasties, is actually the shortened form of the word for Baby Metroid, “Kometoroido.” So, you are correct.

  2. Komayto –
    Ko – Japanese for child.
    Mayto – “me- to” the first 2 Japanese characters for Metroid (or Me-to-ro-i-do)
