A Snatcher was the adult form of a Xenomorph born from a Chimpanzee. Due to the DNA Reflex, the snatcher has the characteristics of its host, namely its posture and proportions. The Snatcher is quadrupedal (?knuckle-walking) and is capable of catching up to even the most fittest of humans in a sprint.

Other than these characterisitics, the Snatchers possess the typical Xenomorph qualities such as a black exoskeleton, the abilty to create hive resin and the ability to cling to ceilings.
