Deep in Brinstar lies the first general of the Space Pirates... Kraid. However, when Super Metroid and Metroid: Zero Mission were released they seemed to have changed the role entirely, with Kraid now being the weakest of the four generals. He was originally going to have a Meta form (Much like Ridley) but it was dropped in favor of the Omega Pirate. Yes, his story is one of plot inconvenience, but Kraid still possesses tremendous power keeping him on the level of some of the basic suits of Samus Aran.
