The Mars Satellite, also known as UFO, is an unmanned UFO-like satellite used by the Martians in Metal Slug.


The remotely controlled spacecrafts are a faster variant of the Mini-UFO, the Martian spacecraft. They attack by firing a laser beam from their bottom, which takes some time to charge but cross the screen at an impressive speed. Unlike the Mini-UFO, they aren't able to warp.

In Metal Slug Attack, the original version has yet to be playable again, new variants make their debut.
