The escape pods before launching have 2 mechanic legs that help stand them up. The escape pod is circular in shape, and it has wings coming out of the sides. The escape pods cockpit is light blue, and the decoration around it is either red or grey. When taking off, the legs and wings go inside the cockpit.
Escape pods can be used in glitches if the player starts his character in a heap of multiple escape pods surrounding him. He automatically takes off in multiple escape pods, or in some cases, the escape pod will just stand there blasting off the air and not taking off, trapping your character inside. Victory is not inevitable in an escape pod once you get inside and blast off, however.
Just before the screen takes off with the escape pod, (with you inside.) enemies may shoot at your escape pod with the escape pod being in a full screen of a heap of "barrels", which are explosive objects in the creator. The enemies see you and blast out projectiles, obliterating the barrels, making all of them explode toward you, and obliterating you as well when you are already in the escape pod. SegFaults can also attack you when you are in an escape pod.
When you are climbing a ladder when you get into the escape pod, or you are slashing the air with a sword when you get inside the escape pod, you carry on doing that.
When you enter an escape pod and a robot suit at the same time, you can move the robot suit despite not being inside it, and you stop moving when the escape pod is going up. You still complete the level.
