On one side, fans believe that the game undermines Samus’s image as a courageous hero. Her admiration of Adam (a man of all things, amirite?) and obeying his orders is seen as reinforcing an old stereotype that a woman needs a man, and that her infamous freeze-up against monster space pirate leader Ridley is a massive character derailment for the once fearless mercenary. On the other side though, are those who can now relate to Samus, and like the fact that she no longer is just an emotionless killing machine. She has problems like everyone else, and so, to many, she has become less of a mary-sue type character, and more like someone you could actually care for."
