Purpose of Metroids

In another thread some people asked why the Chozo created the Metroids. To me, it was obvious in Fusion that Metroids were created to battle the X. So then why did the Chozo allow them to run rampant and be so aggressive?

My guess is that Metroids evolved/mutated beyond what the Chozo could foresee. Other guesses?

That might just be it, and that's probably why this Metroid story started. I did have another thought, similar to yours. I thought that they just wanted to do other things then just fight the X, and did what they liked. I might be wrong, but that's just my guess. :/

I like how the Metroid are weak against cold. Perhaps the Chozo included that fault as a weakness so that they would be easier to control.

How did the Chozo make it so the Metroid were weak against cold? I never heard that anywhere. :/

I didn't say they did. Just a thought.

Oh, I see. But I really highly doubt they would do that, since what if they had to fight the X parasites in the cold? Or are you just saying that the X parasites were on the Chozo's home planet and it wasn't cold there.

I'm saying that it would be easier to control them. As in, you keep them in a lab to test them, and when you need to come into contact with them, you lower the temperature to sedate them. Or you could use cold-based weapons on them if you had to fight them.

I don't remember any cold areas on any planet other than Tallon IV where the Chozo were said to live, so this is what I'm thinking.

But were the X parasites on Tallon IV? If they were, and if the Chozo did make it so the Metroids were weak against the cold, then the Chozo were quite stupid on that problem. :/

No they were not. Tallon IV was the planet you played during The original Prime. I think the X parasite is only able to live on Zebes, because of the climate, and other different things that allow them to strive. No doubt though, that metroids are all around the galaxy, and it never talks about any of the worlds Chozo used as homeworlds, for all we know they are still a striving race on a different planet.
