Bladepods are Ing that have morphed their bodies around useful objects to store them. They are completely immobile and incapable of defending themselves; instead they rely on other Ing for defense.
They are found in Dark Agon Wastes and in the Sky Temple Grounds.
- ↑ 1.0 1.1 "These Ing morph their bodies around useful items to protect them. They rely on larger Ing for protection, as they have no way of fending off enemies. Damage from all weapons will harm them, but light-based weapons are superior." — Logbook "Bladepod" (Metroid Prime 2: Echoes)
