Primid, (プリム Purimu, Prim in Japan), are the shock troops of the Subspace Army in Super Smash Bros. Brawl's Subspace Emissary mode. First appearing at Midair Stadium, they appear as common enemies and are the most frequently encountered enemies in the in the Subspace Emissary. The Primids attack by jabbing at the character with their fist. The damage caused by Primids depends on the difficulty. The Primids also have the ability to jump to other platforms and areas. Most Primids can be defeated by one or two smash attacks. The Primids also appear in many different variations. Each type of Primid has its own trophy that can be collected with the use of a trophy stand. Primids can be looked at as Subspace Emissary seeds because they bring other species of Subspace enemies into existence.
Rapid Punch - Similar to Kirby's Vulcan Punch, this move hits multiple times and can trap Smashers. The number of punches never changes, so a player can attack from behind once it's started.
Triple Combo - Similar to Mario's combo, a Primid will punch, kick, and then follow up with a push. The first two hits deal no knockback, while the third hit can KO at higher percents.
Faceplant - Similar to Dedede's dash attack, the Primid trips and slides forwards.
Smash Punch - A Primid's smash attack. This move involves the Primid winding up and launching a powerful punch that KOs well. Despite its looks, it does not do fire damage.
Spear Jump - While Primids can jump onto platforms, they can also crouch down for a second and launch themselves upwards, damaging characters in the way. This attack does not go straight up.
If a player is knocked down in the floor, the Primid will jump and stomp him, causing knockback. The Primid makes a commemorative pose after the attack, even if it misses.
Types of Primid
Big Primid: A larger-sized Primid that functions similar to its smaller counter-parts. A Big Primid can take more damage than a regular Primid and can also deal more damage with its punches, however it is slower and a much bigger target than a normal Primid.
Boom Primid: A Primid that is equipped with a boomerang. It attacks both long-range and close up. It regularly throws its boomerang at the direction its facing the player.
Fire Primid: A Primid that is red in color. Its attacks are all fire-based.
Metal Primid: A type of Primid whose whole body is encased in metal. It can sustain more damage than a normal Primid. It also does not flinch and can reflect some projectiles.
Sword Primid: A Primid that is equipped with a sword similar to the Beam Sword. This sword is always green, unlike the beam sword used by Brawl characters. It attacks by using its sword rather than landing punches.
Scope Primid: A Primid that is equipped with a weapon similar to the Super Scope. It can be found on higher areas or longer distance and fire projectiles from its weapon.
There are many different faces that a Primid can have. The faces change each time Adventure Mode is loaded up. The three Primids in the display room of the Battleship Halberd Exterior always have the same faces, two of them are different, but the color from two of them is yellow instead of the colors used in the game. always have the same faces, two of them are different, but the color from two of them is yellow instead of the colors used in the game.
A Primid reappears in Super Smash Bros. Fusion as a downloadable playable character, and was released on September 21, 2015. His special moves are all based upon the Subspace Emissary from Brawl, as his standard special move has him shooting three blasts from the same weapon used by Scope Primid, his up special being him holding on to a Buckot in a matter not unlikely Solid Snake's up special from Brawl, his side special has him throwing a boomerang, just as the Boom Primids did in Brawl, and his down special has him spinning around whilst holding a Jyk. Primid's Final Smash has him riding atop a Towtow as it rampages around the stage before falling asleep and disappearing.
Primid is the only character in the game to be represented by the Smash Bros. symbol, as Master and Crazy Hand both are both not represented by a symbol in-game, and only on the game's website, and the other members of the Subspace Army are represented by the Subspace Army logo. In the game, Primid will always spawn with the default eyes - white with red pupils. His colour changes do have him switching face textures, however.
Primid's on-screen appearance has him being formed by a group of Shadow Bugs. His victory animations include him jumping up and down wildly, his Shadow Bugs dispersing and him "melting", and him riding on a Towtow, trying to calm it down.
