Glass Tube Room, state 2.png

The glass tube can be destroyed with a Power Bomb, but the glass will not shatter until Samus jumps, shoots, or changes her item selection. Without Gravity Suit, you can set up a Gravity Jump-like effect with this event.

If you fire a shot to break the glass on the same frame you hit the door transition, the game will freeze upon entering the next room.

If you end up on top of the tube before it's destroyed, you can enter the tube by rolling to the right under the slope blocks, unmorphing, then fully standing up.
