The Super Facehugger (also called the Queen Facehugger) is the second type of the facehugger that serves the purpose of impregnating two different hosts: one with a Queen embryo, and the other with a normal Xenomorph embryo. It also possesses a unique appearence with webbed legs to propel it when swimming, and a thick, black exoskeleton.


When Ellen Ripley, Newt, Corporal Dwayne Hicks, and Bishop escaped from LV-426, a Super Facehugger followed them onto the USS Sulaco. When the Sulaco's medical sensors detects the facehugger in Ripley's cryo chamber that one member of the group is in, it ejects the four in an EEV. The EEV crash lands on the prison planet Fiorina 161, where the Super Facehugger, having successfully impregnated Ripley with a Queen embryo, looks for a second host (Newt and Hicks died in the crash, so they could not support an embryo). Later, two inmates find the dead body of the Super Facehugger on an ox's corpse when they are hauling it into the slaughterhouse.
