|“||The SA-X. An enemy with my strongest abilities. But does it have reason? Probably not. It's just a killing machine. In my current state, I can't face it head-on. The SA-X is me, only heartless. I must stop it before it learns its potential and threatens the universe...||„|
|~ Samus Aran|
SA-X is an X Parasite mimicking Samus Aran, which developed after an X Parasite infected her while she was on SR388, copying not only her DNA, but her memories and the Power Suit fused to her body as well, forcing her to have it surgically removed to survive. Quarantined on the Biologic Space Laboratories, the infected remains of her suit transformed into a copy of Samus and escaped imprisonment to infest the entire station.
