(Metroid: Other M; Japanese)
against the Space Pirates - especially Ridley, who was * Disputed
personally responsible for the death of her mother.
Despite her tragic origins, Samus has been shown to
have unparalleled willpower and resourcefulness, succeeding where thousands failed and stopping at
nothing to save the galaxy from any threat that may arise. Such is Samus' determination that she was
even willing to sacrifice herself to prevent the spread of the body-snatching X Parasites.

Despite her reputation for destroying even the deadliest of foes, Samus is also known for her
compassion, and has consistently stood up to protect the helpless and downtrodden. Two notable
instances of this were when she volunteered to single-handedly save the Luminoth race from the brink of
extinction, and when she helped innocent Etecoons and a Dachora escape a self-destructing Zebes. In
Metroid II, Samus also bonded with a Metroid who was born in front of her eyes, and decided to spare it,
possibly recalling her three-year-old self during the attack on K-2L. It later sacrificed itself at the end of
Super Metroid to save Samus, leaving her heartbroken and emotionally scarred for some time, as shown
in Metroid: Other M.

Witnessing her mother's death at Ridley's hands left Samus with posttraumatic stress disorder, which
manifested as a severe panic attack upon her first encounter with Ridley in adolescence. She appears to
have since learned to cope with this trauma, as she has rarely hesitated to do battle with her hated
nemesis since then: Upon learning that he had survived their first battle on Zebes, Samus expressed only
anger and wasted no time rushing to her Gunship and chasing Ridley all the way down to the planet
Tallon IV. Samus' PTSD resurfaced a second time when she encountered a cloned Ridley on the
BOTTLE SHIP during the events of Metroid: Other M - a period of time in which Samus was already
emotionally vulnerable following the death of the Metroid hatchling and the destruction of her childhood
home of Zebes.

During the events of Metroid: Other M, Samus was depicted as going through a period of severe self-
doubt after the destruction of her childhood home and the death of the Metroid hatchling. During this
time, her behavior was more passive, less self-reliant, being uncharacteristically dependent on Adam
Malkovich when she joined him and his platoon in investigating the BOTTLE SHIP, despite later stating
that she dislikes the very idea of taking orders from a commanding officer. Her PTSD regarding Ridley
EVO PDF Tools Demo
also resurfaced during this mission, to the point that she could barely communicate when attacked by his
clone, and could not regain her composure until Anthony Higgs was apparently killed trying to defend her.
Other M's depiction of Samus has garnered significant criticism for being perceived as inconsistent with
her depictions in all other games, as well as the questionable implications of her submissive behavior and
interactions with Adam during the game's events. However, Other M is the only time these traits have
been observed; by the time of the events of Metroid Fusion, which takes place after Other M, Samus is
once again portrayed as self-reliant and strong-willed, if somewhat more introspective.

Age
Samus' precise age has never been revealed, with the Japanese Prime site even stating that her age is
unknown. Other M concept art reveals that in her early years of around the time of the K-2L attack, that
she is "4-6 years old,"[4] contradicting early media saying it happened when she was three, and in her
Federation military period, she is "15-17 years old."[5]

Inspiration from the Alien Series


It is plausibly assumed that Samus was inspired by Sigourney Weaver's character Ripley from the Alien
series. Her relationship with the Metroid is comparable to Ripley's relationship with a surviving LV-426
colonist named Rebecca "Newt" Jorden. Like the Baby, Newt dies in the sequel, Alien3, and just like
Samus, Ripley feels guilt over her death. Unlike Ripley, Samus has never shown to be traumatized by the
Metroids she faces on her various missions.

Non-canon warning: This article or section contains


information that may not be considered an official part of
the Metroid series in the overall storyline by Nintendo.

In licensed Metroid material outside of the games, Samus’s personality is largely left
up to the writer in question. As such, her personality has varied considerably between
major publications. The Magazine Z manga depicts her as suffering from childhood
trauma and often thinking heavily about her role and the role of the Pirates. In the
Captain N: The Game Master comics, Samus is depicted as brash and money-hungry
(as just about any bounty hunter would be), though she is willing to compete fairly with
Princess Lana for the protagonist Kevin Keene’s feelings, suggesting her behavior is
something of a "tough-guy" act.

While Samus does not have royal heritage in any of the games, she was depicted as
Early art of the queen of Garbage World in A King of Shreds and Patches in Captain N, and
Samus. Anthony Higgs gives her the nickname "Princess" in Metroid: Other M (although in
concept artwork James Pierce says "Heey, Princess!" likely referring to Samus ).
Non-canonically, she is also depicted sitting on the throne in the King Conan Diorama in Corruption. This
would seem to indicate that she became an empress to the Reptilicus, although this is never depicted in-
game.

Non-canon warning: Non-canonical information ends here.

Physical appearance
Samus Aran is a human. According to the Super Metroid
Players' Guide, she is 6 feet 3 inches tall (roughly 190 cm)
and weighs 198 pounds (roughly 90 kilograms); however, the
manual of Metroid II: Return of Samus attributes these
measurements to her Power Suit instead.[6] Physically, her
body is quite lean under the armor, though her observed
superhuman abilities may be accountable to her muscle/bone
density given her hybrid genetics and augmentations.
Underneath the helmet, Samus has green-tinged blue eyes,
light skin, and typically wears her blond hair in a modified Samus Aran in the top endings of Metroid,

ponytail with a red headband, with a lock on either side. The
exact hairstyle, however, can vary from game to game.

Samus's appearance varied widely in the early games. In the


original Metroid, her hair was miscolored brown, though it
would turn green once the player acquired the Varia Suit. If
Metroid II: Return of Samus was played with a Super Game
Boy, Game Boy Player or Game Boy Advance, her hair would EVO PDF Tools Demo
be miscolored red. It wasn't until Super Metroid that she
officially became blond, although the non-canon comic colored
From the Super Metroid Players' Guide
her hair purple. In addition, the gamebook Metroid: Zebes
Invasion Order depicted her hair color as largely being black.

Similarly, Samus's Hairstyle has varied in the early games and other media. In the original Metroid, her
hairstyle was depicted as wavy and reaching just beyond her shoulder blades in the ending, while in
Metroid II and Super Metroid, it was depicted as straight with a part on the left side of her forehead and
bangs, respectively, with the former only reaching her neck and the latter reaching her shoulders. In
Fusion, she has two bangs, one of which partially covers her left eye slightly, and is depicted as long
enough to reach down her back. In addition, in Zebes Invasion Order, Samus's hair, similar to Fusion was
depicted as long enough to reach down her back. Samus's signature hairstyle debuted in Metroid: Zero
Mission, and has been present in every Metroid game released since. The only exception is Metroid
Prime Hunters which, though it retained Samus's ponytail, lacked the two locks of hair on each side of her
head. Previously, Samus had been depicted with a ponytail in Metroid Prime and (briefly) at the end of
Metroid II and Super Metroid.

Samus's face structure has also varied between games. Metroid II,
Super Metroid, and Metroid Fusion gave her a wider face and larger
eyes than later incarnations. In particular, her appearance for Super
Metroid is stated to be based on American actress Kim Basinger. In
Metroid Prime, her jaw was squarer, her eyes deeper-set and her lips
more defined. Zero Mission gave her higher cheekbones and a
thinner face than previous installments, and that template has been
Samus Aran as she appears in
the basis for every game since. Echoes' incarnation is possibly her Metroid: Zero Mission
most panned appearance, due to the in-game model suffering from
the uncanny valley. Prime Hunters, on the other hand, gave Samus a
face that appeared to be a blend of Zero Mission's and Prime's
depiction. Samus retained the deep-set eyes, traditional ponytail, and
fuller face from Prime, but also had Zero Mission's higher
cheekbones. Corruption's is closer to that of Zero Mission, with a
thinner, more stylized face. In other media, such as Zebes Invasion
Order, Samus's face was rendered with a similar design to various
Japanese anime, such as Speed Racer.

On the other hand, Metroid: Other M is perhaps the largest change


Samus has ever had to her appearance since Zero Mission. She is
depicted for the first time with short hair. While her adult appearance

still gives her a ponytail, the two locks on either side of her head have Prime series
been heavily reduced in size, her bangs have been altered and her
ponytail has been moved to the nape of the neck. She also
has the beauty mark that Yoshio Sakamoto alluded to in the
Super Metroid developer interview, under the left side of her
lip. A mole was marked in concept art for Metroid Prime, but
was not added to the model . Before the credits, Samus is
briefly depicted with her hair down, the first instance of this in
3-D. With her hair down, she has locks of hair hanging over
her shoulders. After Anthony steps in, the lock over her right
shoulder is no longer there. She then ties her hair back into
her ponytail, mirroring the scenes in Metroid II and Super
Metroid where she unties the ponytail. A development
screenshot pictured her young appearance with black hair.

Samus Aran's infusion with Chozo DNA, as well as her warrior


training since her childhood, has turned her into a superior
athlete. Her training began at the age of 3 and continued up
until she was 14 years old. As a result of the Chozo’s
EVO PDF Tools Demo
influence, Samus is capable of running and jumping heights
far past normal human ability, as well as surviving falls that
would otherwise kill an ordinary human. Samus is also more
adaptive to foreign alien environments that normal humans
cannot survive in, such as the majority of Zebes and Elysia.

her athletic abilities. Samus also demonstrates good sharpshooting skills. She is an
excellent marksman, with incredible aim, and is tremendously
deadly in combat. She exhibits prodigious puzzle-solving and
hacking skills. She also possesses a lithe figure that allows her to crawl through tunnels and gaps that
would normally require usage of the Morph Ball. All of these are, of course, augmented further by her
Power Suit. If need be, Samus will engage in melee combat, often using kicks and wrestling tactics to
weaken her foe for a point-blank shot.

The extent of Samus’ training after she joined the Federation Police is
currently unknown, but it is clear that the Federation has made one major
augmentation to her abilities: her infusion with Metroid DNA. This infusion
was done in a last-ditch attempt to save her life after she was infected
with the X Parasites, and thus it was not completely known at the time
what the side effects would be.

Equipment
Power Suit
Samus’ most notable piece of equipment is her Power
Suit, which has become virtually synonymous with her
own identity. This suit was given to her during her time
with the Chozo, and was built to be fused with her mind,
body, and spirit. The original Power Suit was destroyed
when Samus crash-landed on Zebes after an ambush
by Space Pirates, but her duel with the Ruins Test gave
her a new, upgraded suit, which is able to absorb
Samus during the invasion on Norion.
dozens of upgrades of alien origin. The Power Suit's
main purpose is to protect Samus from adverse
environments and enemy fire, and can be upgraded to dozens of other forms, each with its own different
advantages. While some suits are stronger than others and have different abilities, they all maintain the
same basic shape and usage.

Zero Suit
Beneath the Power Suit, Samus wears a skin-tight body suit known as the Zero Suit. Because of its
negligible weight, this suit allows Samus to perform at top physical performance level, and gives some
weak protection from enemy fire. She also owns an emergency pistol known as the Paralyzer, which auto-
charges to fire stunning shots, though it has no lethal capacity.

Samus Aran's Gunship


For transportation, Samus uses her Gunship, which usually resembles her helmet. Samus has been seen
in five gunships of unique design: Her first ship design was used and destroyed on her initial Zero
Mission, while the second was used in her mission to Tallon IV and the mission to the Tetra Galaxy. She
has had other two ships custom-made for her in Aliehs III's shipyard: Her modular ship used in the waning
days of the Phazon crisis, which combined Chozo and Federation technology, and the ship for which she
is best known. This gunship model was first seen in the mission to Aether, and stayed with Samus until its
destruction in SR388's asteroid field. After its destruction, Samus was assigned a new ship from the
Federation with an onboard AI for her investigation of the BSL.

It is currently unknown if/how her first two ships and the "iconic" ship are related, although information on
the Metroid Prime website suggests that her ship in that game was the same one as her Zero Mission
model, perhaps salvaged from the wreck on Zebes.

Misplacing Upgrades
A curious aspect of the Metroid series is that Samus begins most games with a minimal amount of
equipment, even after accumulating a sizable number of upgrades in the preceding game that would help
EVO PDF Tools Demo
her on subsequent missions. This is evidently a necessary gameplay mechanic needed for every title in
the series, but it is unknown why this occurs so frequently in-universe, and has become a subject of
humor over the years.

Later games in the series have presented plot-related explanations for this: In games such as Metroid
Fusion, Metroid Prime and Metroid Prime 2: Echoes, Samus starts out with a considerable amount of
gear, but is quickly stripped of most of it by attacks or unfortunate incidents. Samus then regains these
abilities over the course of the game, in addition to a vast array of other upgrades that expand her
arsenal well beyond its initial size. Additionally, Samus seems to relinquish most of her upgrades in the
end of Metroid Prime 2: Echoes, explaining why she only has her basic abilities by the time of Metroid
Prime 3: Corruption.

Metroid Prime: Federation Force


Metroid Prime: Federation Force is the first Metroid
game where Samus is not the main protagonist or even
Samus
playable, but plays a role as a secondary character,
aiding the Federation Force. After the Space Pirates
are discovered in the Bermuda System, the Galactic
Federation asks Samus to investigate their activities.
She is briefly seen flying over Excelcion, and she
destroys one of the missile factories on Talvania while
the Force destroys another. During M10: Black Hole,
Samus contacts the Force directly to warn them of a
fifth Missile Transport ship, which they destroy. She Featured in Metroid Prime: Federation
also assists the Force after the Rohkor Beetle battle, Force

using her Ship Missiles to finish it off. After M14:

In M22: Convergence, it is revealed that Samus was
captured by the Space Pirates and brought aboard
their battleship Doomseye. She is then brainwashed, transformed into gigantic size and forced to fight
against the Federation Force, serving as the game's final boss. After she is defeated, she reverts back to
her normal size and freed from the Pirates' control, but is then buried under falling debris. She survives
and later assists the Federation Force in escaping the battleship's destruction, rescuing them with her
Gunship when they are sucked into the vacuum of space. At the end of the mission, she commends the
Federation Force and looks forward to their future efforts.

Samus spends the entire fight in gigantic Morph Ball form, laying large destructible Bombs in sets of three
and attempting to ram the Marine with the Boost Ball. She constantly rolls around the field, but does not
actively chase the Marines.

Samus is surrounded by a purple shield that negates all the Marines' attacks, although she can be frozen
with the Freeze Shot. However, the shield does not cover the green cores on her sides, which if shot
enough times disables the shield and stops her movement. Once the shield is down, the Marine must
shoot and push her into the electric fields at the edges of the room, similar to Blast Ball. After enough
damage, Samus regains her shield, repeating the process.

Once she loses all her health, Samus shrinks slightly but regains all her health; the process must be
repeated two more times. After one full depletion Samus will start using her Spider Ball to roll across the
ceiling, eventually stopping at the center to drop down to the ground and produce a shockwave. After the
second full depletion Samus rolls much faster, drops larger red Bombs, and also lays Bombs while using
Boost Ball and Spider Ball. Her Bombs can be destroyed to get AUX ammo. The mission's bonus objective
is to never take damage from Samus's Bombs.

Behind the Scenes


Concept and Creation
Samus is an ideal role model not just to me, but for many women to look
“ up to as a powerful game icon. In a video game realm with princesses
aplenty, Samus stands out as an atypical Nintendo gal holding the title of
one of gaming's strongest symbols of courage, power, and heroism. „
EVO PDFPerlTools
—Michelle Demo
(Samus cosplayer)

Samus Aran first appeared in 1986, as the


playable protagonist in the video game
Metroid. Originally, Samus was created
solely as an alternate identity for the player
to put themselves into and was given no
separate personality or defining features,
Early concept art of Samus Aran. characteristic of the creative treatment of
many video game characters of the time.
Partway through the development process, one member of the team
suggested: "Hey, wouldn’t it be cool if the character turned out to be a
woman?” A vote was held and Samus was changed into a woman. The identity
of the developer who suggested making Samus a woman is unknown, and
when asked in 2017 and 2018, Yoshio Sakamoto and Hirokazu Tanaka were
unable to remember. Sakamoto suggested that it may have been someone Samus Aran in her
signature Varia Suit from
who has since left Nintendo.[7][8] Metroid Prime.

Since the film series Alien was acknowledged as a major influence in the
development of Metroid, it is reasonable to assume that the inspiration for making Samus a woman may
have very well come from the film's own Ellen Ripley. Indeed, in the Nintendo Power-published Super
Metroid comic, her personality was based on a mix of Ripley and Princess Leia from the Star Wars series.
Contrary to popular belief, Samus was not created by Metroid producer Gunpei Yokoi. The original game
concepts were done by game director Makoto Kanō and were designed by Hiroji Kiyotake.[9]

The name Samus is the female variant of the name Seamus, which is Celtic for James, which means: "He
who supplants". Her last name of Aran may refer to the Aran Islands on the west coast of Ireland.
Combining the two gives the meaning: "She who supplants an island" or "She who conquers an isolated
area by force."[10] Pronunciation of the name over the years has varied from either SAMUHS A-RUHN (as
in the verb "run"), A-RAHN (using the "CAT" vowel for the first two As and the verb form of "ran"), but it
wasn’t until the release of Metroid Prime 3: Corruption that pronunciation of her name was finally
cemented as SAMUHS ERR-EN, and it is likely to remain this way since. An interview with several of the
developers of the original Metroid states that her name originated from the famous footballer Edson
Arantes "Pelé" do Nascimento.

Voice
Super Metroid marked the first time Samus had written dialogue in a
game, narrating the events directly after Metroid II: Return of Samus.
Her speaking role was expanded in Metroid Fusion, where she spoke
in more narrative monologues, and also conversations with her
computer. Though Fusion was well praised, there was some
controversy over Samus’s several inner monologues and as a result,
aside from an opening narration as well as the beginning of the
expanded portion of the plot in Metroid: Zero Mission, she did not
speak again until Metroid: Other M, the first Metroid game to feature
Samus in an extensive, voice-acted role.

However, it was initially intended for Super Metroid to give her an


audible voice for the first time in the series. A short voice track
recorded by Minako Hamano could be heard as Samus died, as well
as a brief view of the latter's nude body during the death sequence. Concept art for Samus in Metroid:
These elements were reconsidered because of American sensitivity to Zero Mission

nudity and the voice sounding "too sexual", thus Tomoyoshi Yamane
added the black bathing suit to her and the voice track was removed. Sakamoto claimed in a Super
Metroid interview that he has "a special version of the ROM" with the original death sequence.

Samus first received a voice in the game Metroid Prime, although she had no in-game dialogue: instead,
she only utters various grunts or yells when damaged, a scream when killed, and rarely, breathing when
at low energy or in an extreme climate. Dialogue for Samus was considered, but scrapped as Retro
Studios felt it did not suit the game.[11] Though Nintendo Power claimed that Jennifer Hale provided
Samus's voice for the Prime games, the credits make no mention of this. In a 2018 interview, Prime and
Echoes audio lead Clark Wen revealed that Samus's voice recording was handled by Nintendo, who sent
recordings from a dozen voice actresses. The recordings Wen used in the final game included the initials
of the actress in the filename from his ProTools session, "JH", which he was reasonably certain stood for
Jennifer Hale. However, Samus's death scream was different as he wanted an actress with a higher
register for it; the initials for that actress are "VM" (suggested to be Vanessa Marshall).[12] Wen did
recognize one of the other actresses as Gabrielle Carteris.[11]
EVO PDF Tools Demo
Her second voice actress was Alésia Glidewell in Super Smash Bros. Brawl, who also voiced Knuckle Joe
and Krystal in the same game. Most surprising about Glidewell's depiction of her is that Samus is given a
voice-over with speaking lines for the first time. While she is in her Zero Suit (a separate character known
as Zero Suit Samus), she speaks for all three of her taunts, and in one victory pose cutscene. Her lines
are:

"Is that all?"


"Try me."
"You’re mine."
"Be still."

Although Samus lacked a voice actress in Super Smash Bros. and Super Smash Bros. Melee, she
occasionally communicated via mechanical sounds such as during taunts, and if knocked either into a
star fade or into the screen, she would utter a mechanical roar. Glidewell's taunts are retained in Super
Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS and Wii U.

Metroid: Other M features Samus speaking again, voiced by Jessica Martin. In the Japanese version, she
is voiced by Ai Kobayashi. Martin's Samus voice in this game, particularly her monologues, was criticized
for sounding completely monotone during these times, which occurred due to Yoshio Sakomoto ordering
her to voice her that way to match the Japanese voicetrack (in Japan, characters that spoke in a
monotone during tense moments were indicated to be stoic and badass characters).

In the Japanese commercial for Metroid: Zero Mission, Samus is portrayed by Chisato Morishita.

Gender
Samus' true identity as a woman was a heavily guarded secret, and was obscured by the Power Suit’s
androgynous appearance. The game manuals for Metroid in Japan used pronouns like "it" mainly
because the Japanese language only has gender-neutral pronouns like aitsu. The American manuals
flat-out referred to Samus as a "he", but it is unknown if this was an attempt to keep Samus' gender a
secret or simply a mistranslation. Only by beating the game in under an hour could the player gain
access to a secret ending where Samus would remove her Power Suit and reveal herself as a woman. It
has become a tradition for Samus to do so in every Metroid game since, if the player completes the
proper in-game requirements.
In the 1994 Japanese Nintendo Official Guide Book for Super Metroid, a number of biography cards were
published about each of the members of the development team. Hirofumi Matsuoka, one of the
background artists and a designer for Samus in the original game, answered one of the questions (which
asked if there were any secrets of Samus that only he knew) with the statement "Samus isn't a woman. As
a matter of fact, she's actually a newhalf."[13] Newhalf (ニューハーフ nyūhāfu ? ) is a Japanese slang term
used to refer to transgender women or transvestites, roughly equivalent to the English slur "shemale".[14]
The sincerity of this quote has since become a source of heated debate; some fans have cited it as
canonical proof of Samus being a trans woman, while others have dismissed it as a crude joke from a
non-authoritative source.[15] Regardless of Matsuoka's intentions, his remark has been contradicted (and
likely overruled) by series co-creator Yoshio Sakamoto, who joked in 2004 that a Metroid game on the
PlayStation 2 would be "as likely as Samus Aran being a newhalf."[16], as well as canonical material that
depicts Samus as being female as early as her toddler years.

"What's the matter? All I said was that Komaytos look
like little Metr—"

Non-canon warning: This article or section contains


information that may not be considered an official part of
the Metroid series in the overall storyline by Nintendo.

Being one of Nintendo’s flagship franchises, Metroid, and Samus with it, have been featured in a variety
of other media, as cameos, or in promotional material, as well as being mentioned or spoofed in other
games or on television.

Super Smash Bros. series


Samus is one of the original eight characters in the Super Smash Bros.
series and has appeared in all four games to date. The wide array of
weapons she can use include Missiles, Super Missiles, the Charge Beam,
the Grapple Beam, the Screw Attack, and Bombs, as well as a
flamethrower. Her Gunship from Metroid II: Return of Samus appears as
Samus in Super Smash Bros.
a trophy in Super Smash Bros. Melee, Brawl and the fourth games. In the Ultimate
first game, she was subject to a rather infamous glitch where, if she is hit
by Pikachu's thunder jolt or a ray gun, her Varia Suit vanishes and she
has a silver polygon model exposed briefly. In every game except for Melee (which featured a uniform
character entrance for all the characters where they simply have their trophies come to life), her entrance
animation is her emerging from a Save Point. In Melee, Samus is the only character whose screencaps
do not place her on her home stage, instead placing her on Corneria from Star Fox.

In Super Smash Bros. Brawl, Samus is given access to a powerful new weapon as her Final Smash: the
Zero Laser. It allows her to fire a gigantic beam of incredible strength, but consumes so much energy that
Samus’s Power Suit falls apart, revealing her Zero Suit. Samus's appearance behind the Power Suit is
completely original in this installment. In her normal Power Suit form, Samus tends to be a heavyweight
character who's rather floaty in midair, but tends to pack a decent amount of power. In the Zero Suit form,
however, she becomes far faster and gains access to her Paralyzer, which she can use as an energy
whip and to fire stunning shots, though at a small cost lacks a bit of her original raw power. In the fourth
game and Ultimate, the Zero Laser no longer destroys the Power Suit, and Zero Suit Samus is a
separately selectable character. Zero Suit Samus uses her Gunship for her Final Smash in the fourth
game, and the Zero Laser with it in Ultimate.

Adventure Mode: The Subspace Emissary


Samus also plays a role in Brawl's Adventure mode:
The Subspace Emissary. In it, she first appears in her
Zero Suit, breaking into the base of the Subspace
Army on the Island of the Ancients. Soon she comes
across a Pikachu being drained of its electrical power.
Samus uses her whip to break the container the
Pikachu is being held in, summoning a security force
of R.O.B.s. The two join forces to retrieve Samus’s
Samus Aran as she appears in The Subspace
Power Suit, but are confronted by two Shadow Bug
Emissary.
clones mimicking it in a similar fashion to the SA-X.

After reacquiring her Power Suit, Samus and Pikachu come across Ridley. He grabs Samus and starts to
drag her against the wall, until Pikachu returns Samus' favor and uses Thunder on Ridley, causing him to
drop Samus. An infuriated Ridley attacks. Once they defeat him, the duo exits the base and come across
a cave where R.O.B.s are exiting with newly manufactured Subspace Bombs.

Samus and Pikachu make their way through the Subspace Bomb Factory and find the Ancient Minister
with the R.O.B. Squad. They prepare to fight, but then realize that he looks very sad. At that moment,

Captain Falcon, Olimar, Diddy and DK burst in. A hologram of Ganondorf appears and orders the R.O.B.
Squad to activate the remaining bombs. The Ancient Minister tries to stop them, but is set on fire when
Ganondorf orders them to retaliate. After the Ancient Minister is revealed to be a R.O.B. himself, Samus
and the other characters all rush out to escape the Island before it is engulfed, but are confronted by
Meta Ridley and duel him aboard the Falcon Flyer.

Samus groups up with the other fighters to lead an assault on the


Subspace Gunship, during which she uses her own gunship as a
distraction to buy enough time for Kirby to arrive on the Dragoon. She
and the other fighters head into the Subspace Realm, but she is defeated
by Tabuu and turned into a trophy when Tabuu arrives and uses his Off
Waves to defeat all who are attacking him. King Dedede later comes to
save her and she continues with the others to lead the final attack on
Tabuu.

Although the story is not canon to Metroid, it is to be noted that some


elements of the cutscene prior to the fight with Ridley in Subspace Smash File, Nintendo Power
Emissary were later repeated in Metroid: Other M, and was to a certain volume 215.

extent in Metroid: Samus Returns. Similarly, her being saved by an ally


when nearly killed by her nemesis via said ally's natural abilities, and to a certain extent her nemesis's
reaction to such, was also reused for Samus Returns (only in that case, it was the baby saving Samus via
its life energy drain/transfer abilities on Proteus Ridley).

A Piercing Screech
Samus is also naturally prominent in Ridley's reveal trailer for Super
Smash Bros. Ultimate, as she appears moving carefully along a walkway
in a dark ominous space station with Mario and Mega Man following her Stock icon in Ultimate.
lead. Ridley suddenly strikes with incredible speed, dispatching
both Mario and Mega Man while Samus is unaware. When she turns around with her Arm Cannon
drawn all she sees is Mario's iconic cap left lying on the floor, before Ridley bursts from underneath the
walkway and taunts Samus with Mario's cap. Towards the end of the trailer, Ridley uses his Plasma
Scream to destroy Samus along with her Gunship. Samus however, to the Space pirate's surprise, leaps
from the wreckage of her spaceship (now in her Zero Suit) and attacks him with a kick.
Cameos in other Nintendo titles

rolling as usual! ...Looks like your energy tanks are empty! Sorry, but can't you give your
Hoolumbian to Samus? Oh! Feeling better?" She would then give the player an Energy Tank in

In other media
Samus was also a semi-regular character in the Captain N: The
Game Master comic books, published as part of the Nintendo
Comics System. In these stories, Samus has romantic feelings
for Kevin Keene, the main character, despite his own affections
for another woman, Princess Lana. However, as she states in
the story "Breakout", Samus prefers to win Kevin’s affections
fairly. Samus gunship also makes an appearance, though in a
very different form than in the games. Interestingly, the ship's
class in the comic was "Hunter IV", suggesting that the ship's
canonical designation ("Hunter Class") may have been derived
from the comic.
In the Captain N: The Game Master cartoon, Samus did not
appear, even though Mother Brain was the show's primary
villain. Jeffrey Scott claimed in an interview that he didn’t feature
Promotional poster released by Nintendo in
March 2015 to commemorate Women's
Samus in the cartoon because he "never heard of her".[19]
History Month in the style of Rosie the Samus also starred in her own Nintendo Comics System stories,
Riveter: "At the end of the first Metroid game,
apparently set in the same continuity, titled Deceít Du Jour; it
Samus Aran shocked players by revealing
her gender, making many fans question was the only ten-page story to have the Metroid umbrella title.
why they assumed she was male in the first In this story, Samus duels with another Bounty Hunter, 'Big
place."
Time' Brannigan, whom Mother Brain has hired to capture her,
and who claims to be just as efficient as Samus. In the end,
EVO PDF Tools Demo
Samus proves her superiority by sabotaging her own gun (after he damages her Arm Cannon)
before handing it over to Big Time. When Big Time attempts to kill her with it later on, it explodes,
covering Samus' escape.

In the 1989 movie The Wizard, Metroid can be seen briefly (in a full-
screen shot) on a PlayChoice-10.
A super deformed doll in Samus' likeness that Princess Peach
desired drove the humorous plot for a Mario VS Wario comic that
was published one month prior to the Super Metroid comic.
Samus also starred in two comic adaptations featured in Nintendo
Power: a 60-page one for Super Metroid[18] and a 24-page one for
Metroid Prime.
Samus also appeared in the Samus and Joey series of manga,
where she meets a boy named Joey and adventures with him.
Samus once appeared in a Kool-Aid commercial that advertised
Topps waxpack
Metroid II: Return of Samus. An animated version of her is seen in
the back of a bus with two children.
In the episode of the show "Code Monkeys" called "Valley of the Silicon Dolls", Larrity searches for
bounty hunters to kill the robotic teddy bear that Dave, Jarry, and Black Steve reprogrammed.
Towards the end of the episode, a warped version of Samus' ship rises up and Samus jumps out
and kills the teddy bear. She then removes her helmet and reveals that she is actually Mary. She
then morphs into a ball and rolls away. This version of Samus has the arm cannon on her left arm
instead of her right, probably due to copyright issues with Nintendo.
Samus can be seen on Nintendo Monopoly representing New York Avenue for $200, and is featured
prominently on the box based on Metroid Prime 2: Echoes artwork.
Samus is shown on pages 26 and 27 in How to Draw Nintendo Greatest Heroes & Villains.
In the official Men in Black 3 game by Gameloft, available for the iOS and Android, one of the
recruitable agents from the Locker Room at MIB Headquarters is a woman named Samantha Aran.
Both her appearance and name are obvious references to Samus Aran, and her former services
included being a counter-terrorist, similar to how Samus thwarts terrorists' plans, most notably the
many Space Pirate operations.
