When Samus first enters the room, the creature looks like a normal Missile Tank. However, once she gets close to it, eyes and bat-like wings appear from the item. The creature will begin to fly up for a time, then fly away, though if Samus hits it with a Super Missile, it will be destroyed and transform into an X Parasite. If she then bombs the wall in front of her, she will obtain a real Missile Tank.
The fake Missile Tank provides another example, along with the SA-X and other creatures, of an X parasite apparently mimicking an inorganic, mechanical object. When agitated, the tank reveals itself to be at least partially organic in nature, lending strong support to the theory that X parasites do indeed create these seemingly metallic components out of organic material.
- In Japanese media, the Fake Missile Tank is referred to as a Mimic. This is interesting, as the name Mimic is also used for a creature in the Metroid Manga.
