I believe that they are just the glittering trails of the crystals as they are ejected from the statue. That's the vibe I always got from it at least.

Holy crap your right, I never noticed before.




0:40 for the Statues leading to Tourian.


After the Crystals fly out, pay attention. Ghoulish phantoms will fly out of the statues not long after. They clearly have a horror stricken face.

told you there was something weird going on, i notice new things like that all the time despite having played the games 100s of times each.
ive noticed that and other weird things before, i just never thought to ask about it, also that orange zoomer before the gravity suit, i think that was a coloration glithc, i think the norfair orange fire zoomer pallette got stuck onto it , i also thing the game glitched letting you control it thats why it follows you, as for the ghosts, im wondering if the thing only triggers when you kill its trapping then releaseing theyre souls or something.

Indeed, nice find. I had never noticed that before either. I thought you meant the same colored glitter bombs that fly out at the same time as the crystals. Intriguing as to what that was intended to be by the game designers.

No i meant the things right after the crystals, but the colors are still nice.

Makes me wonder what type of creature they are supposed to be, or if they are really supernatural apparitions similar to those found on the Wrecked Ship or Chozo Ghosts.

Really? You've never noticed that before? Very interesting.
I've always thought it was the souls of the bosses escaping the statue and going to the beyond.
Like they were trapped in the statue and the real bosses were linked to the statue some how.
So when you defeat a boss their soul leaves the statue.

vgm out...

it could have been the statue trapping the souls as they died which caused the crystals to explode from the energy , honestly it could just be nintendo wanting it to just be ominous.
