The Human Core-X is an X Parasite that mimicked a Human crew member.[1] In an attempt to destroy Samus and protect the X living outside the B.S.L research station, the Human Core-X deactivates the cooling unit of the station Main Boiler potentially detonating the auto destruct system.[2][3]

Immediately after Samus fires on him, the Human Core-X emerges as a Hard Core-X armed with the Wide Beam. After defeating it, she as able to absorb the creature and the Wide Beam with it.

From this Human Core-X, Adam infers that this particular human was alive until recently, prompting Samus to look for more survivors but finding only the Dachora and Etecoons. Adam also realized that the X work heavily toward self-preservation[3] of the species, even at the cost of the individual organism.



The Human Core-X boss Battle


  1. "The X mimicked a crew member." —Adam Malkovich (Metroid Fusion)
  2. "It seems the Main Boiler's cooling unit is malfunctioning. This could easily destroy the entire research station, as it would likely trigger the auto-destruct explosives." —Adam Malkovich (Metroid Fusion)
  3. 3.0 3.1 "This could have destroyed the station with the X in it, not to mention to SA-X. Unusual for a self-preserving species like the X. Unless... Your presence is an even greater threat, a threat to the existence of X elsewhere..." —Adam Malkovich (Metroid Fusion)
