The Hyper Grapple blocker (as named in sound effects) is a Phazon-based enemy encountered by Samus Aran twice in Metroid Prime 3: Corruption. Her first encounter occurs while on the Space Pirate Homeworld in the Command Station, as well as on Phaaze in Entry Canyon. It blocks her path at both points, and is slightly plant-like in structure. It has several large violet-colored Phazon crystals growing out of its main body, as well as a strange eye-like structure. It can only be destroyed by overloading it with Phazon using the Hyper Grapple. The crystals shatter, one after another, as it is overloaded.

Metroid Prime 3: Corruption Premiere Edition refers to this as a "purple alien growth".
