While powerful sci-fi Emperors capable of wielding both dark-based and light-based powers sounds more like a Star Wars trend, the Emperor Ing from Metroid Prime 2: Echoes represents the epitome of one of the deadliest threats Samus has faced in her career.

Worker drone of the Ing Horde. Wall-crawling, morphing bioform. Strongly dislikes bright light.”

Logbook entry

“Inglets perform the menial labor of the Horde, but can be pressed into a combat role if there is need. They are amorphous blobs, capable of clinging to nearly any surface.

As with all Ing, they dislike bright light, and will avoid it if possible.”
