Aqua Sacs are plants native to Metroid Prime's Tallon IV, found primarily in the crashed Space Pirates' Frigate Orpheon in the Tallon Overworld.
Aqua Sacs are believed to be relatives of the Sap Sac, with blue rather than orange coloration, that have adapted to life underwater. When damaged, an Aqua Sac bursts, discouraging species from predating on it. Unlike a Sap Sac's chemical explosion, however, this mechanism is harmless to Samus, possibly due to the water-bound nature of the plants' explosions.
