The Fake Chozo Statue, as the name suggests, looks virtually indistinguishable from a true Chozo Statue. It holds an item sphere containing an item that looks like the Morph Ball. However, touching it causes the Statue to transform into its true form; a Hard Core-X that fires Charge Beams. In its Hard Core-X form, like others of its kind, it is covered in an spiky armored shell that repel any attack, with its sole weakpoint being its eye. Absorbing the Core-X grants the Charge Beam.
