Zebbo are a species of aerial, pit-dwelling, thermophilic insectoid indigenous to the searing magma-filled areas of Lower Norfair, one of the planet Zebes' many (sub)sectors. Three hues are known to exist: blue, yellow, and green, either indicating closely related subspecies, sexual dimorphism, color change through incomplete metamorphic change, or a combination of any of the above. They typically could be found living in large colonies within former colonial air ducts and like many other Zebesian hive-oriented fauna, they would protect their homes with ample ferocity. They will continue to bombard their foes with their seemingly endless numbers until the threat flees. Given their name, they may be related to the similarly named Zebs.

As with all other species native to Zebes, it became extinct in the wild when Samus Aran finally destroyed the evil Mother Brain.
