Fune are large, sessile organisms indigenous to hot caverns within Zebes. They appear to be large worm-like beings (if one is to assume that the X Parasite mimics have not significantly changed their bodily structures, only their attack strategies) that stick their heads out of walls, where they can more easily find prey to consume. If they feel threatened by an organism, they will instead launch blue-hot fireballs to try and deter them. Their armor plating is strong as one would expect from a subterranean species, and the only conventional weaponry known to crack through it are super missiles. They show an uncanny resemblance to the Namihe, lacking only the eyes that the Namihe themselves possess. This might indicate that Fune are in fact immature Namihe. With the destruction of their homeworld and the only known location of them offworld, the Biologic Space Laboratory Research Station, being destroyed as well, it may be that they are now officially extinct; if so, then we may never know the truth about the connection between the Fune and the Namihe.
