The Meeba (アメフォン Amefon) is a Forces of Nature enemy in Kid Icarus: Uprising. It is equivalent to the Underworld Armin in the way it attacks and defends itself. Meeba is a fungal monster that has inhabited the armored head of a large stag beetle, which at first sight looks to be the head of the creature itself. However, the Meeba’s single eye actually lies behind the stag beetle’s head, and can only be attacked after the enemy charges after you with its two skinny legs. Of course, dodging this charge is the best option to allow for a counterattack.
A Meeba is a parasitic fungus that inhabits the body of a beetle. Although its host has expired, the shell provides excellent defense against frontal attacks. Circle around and attack from behind where its body is exposed.
- Meebas appear to be inspired by the Cordyceps fungi, a genus of parasitic fungi that uses insects as hosts.
