Character Description

Samus was orphaned during a Space Pirate raid. She was then taken and raised by the Chozo, a mysterious alien race, in Zebes, where she was infused with their DNA. She was then raised to become a warrior. Samus joined the Federation Police once she reached adulthood, but ultimately left to become a bounty hunter. Armed with her cybernetic Power Suit, Samus has become famous for her accomplishments on missions, others throught impossible.

Samus' personality has never been detailed in deapth within the context of the games. Typically, Samus is decipted as a Bryonic Hero, who despite her great achievements, is deep down very lonely and brooding, and seeks revenge from the Space Pirates, especially Ridley, who killed her parents.


Unlike her previous appearances in SSB games, Samus's attacks and overall mechanics have been hugely adjusted, making her seem like a Newcomer character. Samus is now a medium to heavy weight fighter, her running speed is normal and has a wide variety of projectiles as well as physical attacks. Her attacks provide much better combinations than before. Samus' Standard Special now allows her to use up to 5 different attacks, by inputing her Down Special Move, the Weapon Switch, which can be charged and provide great damage, knockback and combinations. As for her Smash attacks, they have been upgraded in terms of knockback. Samus is no longer a floaty character. She has decent recovery. All in all, Samus is a character who has been fully upgraded, to the point where she no longer resembles her former self.
