An Auroros is a bird-like enemy in The Subspace Emissary. It has rainbow colored feathers and tail, and a long beak. Auroro's feet are very small, similar to the size of a baby's foot. Auroros appear in The Lake, The Ruined Zoo, The Forest, The Wilds, Outside the Ancient Ruins, Subspace Bomb Factory 2, Subspace 2, and The Ruined Zoo and The Forest parts of The Great Maze. They usually stay up in the air for a while but when they spot the player they will divebomb onto the ground. This has high upwards knockback and can KO you easily. If you dodge the attack its beak will be stuck in the ground. It takes a while for it to pull out the beak and soar back up in the air, so this is a good time to throw the trophy stands. Auroros doesn't need weakening, and can be captured by just throwing the trophy stand at it. This true even on intense.
- Auroros, aside from R.O.B.s and Primids, are the only Subspace soldiers featured in cutscenes.
