The Vacuum Pod has a sharp, triangular body. Its body is greenish gray, and is split into several sections which are connected by purple trimming.
Vacuum Pods can be dropped by defeated Black Warriors that wield them or released from breakable Containers. Touching one will make the playable character pick it up automatically, and pressing // (whether on the ground or in mid-air) will fire it. As a vacuum, the Vacuum Pod can suck up various objects, such as Rings, special walls and even small enemies such as Gun Beetles, which can then be fired back to deal damage to other enemies. A Vacuum Pod can fire a total of twenty shots, and once those run out, it becomes useless. However, it can be reloaded with another twenty shots by picking up another Vacuum Pod.
