How Samus Santalizes Gamers

Samus Aran, is the fictional protagonist of the Metroid video game series. Introduced in the 1986 video game Metroid, Samus is a bounty hunter armed with a cybernetic power suit with a number of advanced technologies built into it. She hunts aliens called the "Space Pirates" and energy-draining alien parasites called "Metroids", while attempting to complete missions given by the Galactic Federation. Her gender was unusual for a game protagonist of her time; Metroid led players to believe Samus was a male cyborg (including references to the character as male in the English instruction booklet) until the very end of the game, where it was revealed that Samus is in fact an athletic young woman.

Samus in Metroid prime 1, when she took off her helmet. Now that was an image of a woman that could kick ass.
I'm so Pissed off at the Character designer how they changed a Strong looking female into a stereotyping Anime character.

(and this isn't about girl power, I'm a guy my self but really what have they done to her =/. Still hate them for that =()


Look at her, Paris hilton anyone =(?

And don't get me wrong i seriously love the series.

I just, simply love samus, she is the best character in the video game history...

heck, she is better than chuck norris for me...

and Sidar, you are right, but i don't like the metroid prime 1 samus either, the best one is from metroid fusion/zero mission, she is not a old woman and not a lolita either...

he was good enough in SSBB too.
