In-Game Description
"A young woman from a minority people living in an underworld in which a different ecosystem from the Earth's one was formed. Since this peace loving girl became her clan's representative, conflicts have decreased and negotiations for a co-existence pact have been moving forward bit by bit. She has special abilities allowing her to understand space, even in the darkness thanks to a little light emitted by living beings, and she also possesses special equipment on her face which boosts this ability. The caterpillar that's always with her is her friend and was born on the same day."

Esther is a unit original to Metal Slug Attack, first appearing in the Extra Ops titled "Glow in the Dark". Her parts are obtained via the Box Crank.

The representative of her underground people, Esther is armed with a dagger and a Barrett sniper rifle. Her long range attack does decent damage and it's massive recoil causes her to be knocked backwards. She is accompanied by a unique golden caterpillar in battle (name unknown).

Firing her rifle inflicts significant knockback upon her, moving her far away from the front line. As her special, she calls in a larger caterpillar known as "Grandee", who'll charge forward until encountering any tangible enemy (e.g, bypassing "out of play" units such as units being knocked back or specials like Odette's), although regular invulnerable enemies (anything that will soak up projectiles, such as the single mummies generated by Lovely Mummies) will still block its path. The caterpillar is itself invulnerable and rams enemies several times before fleeing, with this amount increasing with MSA Skill small + 4. Additionally Grandee is able to block most projectiles that aren't laser-based. If blocking projectiles are needed, using Grandee is better compared to Midori's "TETSUJIN KUN" Slug Armor, though it won't deal as much damage.

Should Esther herself be killed, her smaller pet caterpillar will perform one final charge, much like Machyna (the Red Goblin's drone) does.

When placed in a deck with the Everlasting Summer Dragunov, they form the "Glow in the Dark" team. This decreases their AP costs by 10%.
