A Living Statue is a large, dynamically posed sculpture that can easily be passed off as a mere statue if not for its glowing eyes. Despite being endowed with life, Living Statues rarely move and actually appear to struggle when they do so, their movements often jerky, sudden, and barely different from their idle pose. This apparent difficulty is even reflected in their speech as they tend to get caught up momentarily mid-sentence, often at an awkward point in the middle of a word.
Difficulty in movement does not hamper a Living Statue's strength, however: their heavy bodies enable them to attack hard and stand up to a fair amount of punishment before they crumble.

A living statue can be fought in Uptaten Towers. One of the valiant warrior statues has an odd glimmer; if examined it begins watching you. Talking to it reveals it's actually alive and a battle starts, where it reveals its true form. Unlike in other installments, this living statue is a silver palette swap of the terracotta warrior.
