As a trophy

Kraid features as one of the nearly-300 available trophies in the game. His description is as follows:


A boss enemy from Metroid. Kraid lives in the depths of Brinstar. He immobilizes enemies with his three red eyes, and his powerful jaws can crush anything. He can also shoot the three spikes in his belly; it's said he often fires them at his prey. Once Samus defeated Ridley and Kraid, the way to Tourian opened. (Metroid, 8/89)

In Super Smash Bros. Brawl
