"The last Komaytos is not in captivity, Skyworld is not at peace."
―Komayto idol description

A Komayto.

The Komayto is an airborne enemy from Kid Icarus. They appear in the Skyworld area in the first Kid Icarus and in the Sky Tower in Kid Icarus: Of Myths and Monsters. They are unmistakably similar to the Metroids, and it is also implied that they are from another world. There is a subspecies of the species known as a Cellular Komayto.


The word Komayto comes from the Japanese word Kometo, short for Kometoroido, which translates as Metroid Child.
