So far as I can tell, the creature is never called that in the Alien: Covenant itself or by the cast and crew members. "Protomorph" is just a fan-term, which I believe Wikipedia has policies against using. 184.108.40.206 (talk) 09:31, 18 May 2017 (UTC)
- Not to mention all the fanboy lingo - "bambi burster" and "beluga-morph" for example. Yeah, the 'Protomorph' belongs up in the Xenomorph appearances where the description can describe the physical differences of the xenomorph to the traditional style.--DisneyMetalhead (talk) 16:32, 22 May 2017 (UTC)
Since an IP keeps trying to add "Xenomorph Prime" as the homeworld, I should probably clarify as to why I keep removing it. Xenomorph Prime was invented specifically for the supplemental materials (novels, video games, ETC). Normally that wouldn't matter, except the idea of them having that homeworld was directly contradicted by canon sources (specifically Alien: Covenant, where they originated in a makeshift laboratory). So until Xenomorph Prime is referenced in the canon film series, we're going to have to wait. At the moment, it would appear as if it doesn't exist at all. DarkKnight2149 15:03, 7 June 2017 (UTC) '

I see that Deacon replaced Proto-Xenomorph but nowhere are references to be seen. Very weird name. Proto-Xenomorph, fan name or not, makes sense since it made appearance in the 1st prequel and is the first alien we see.
But what I really wanted to know is what is that snake-like (cobra-like) creature, that has acid instead of blood, that was swimming in "oil" in Prometheus and killed two crew members. Could it be the first alien?? Definitely deserves a place in the article. 220.127.116.11 (talk) 18:44, 12 February 2018 (UTC)
