The Flying Killers are flying fish that appear since Metal Slug 3.


The Flying Killers are mutated carnivorous fish that are capable of brief moments of flight over the water in order to hunt for prey. They are always in groups, which can be problematic.

If you fall off the boat (in the SV- 001 route) you'll be eaten alive by many of them, your carcass being quickly stripped to nothing but a skeleton.

It can be sent flying from a big canister.

  • The Flying Killer's name was based on a Thomas and Friends episode: The Flying Kipper.
  • In Metal Slug Defense can be purchased and place a canister on the field.
