[edit] Background

Main Article

Samus is an inter-galactic bounty hunter. She received her training and Power Suit from the Chozo, a bird-like alien race. She is an orphan whose parents have been killed in a Space Pirate attack, and she is the sole survivor.

She has appeared in every Super Smash Bros. game to date, including the upcoming Super Smash Bros 3DS/Wii U.

[edit] Super Smash Bros.

“Samus Aran is the toughest bounty hunter in the galaxy. Using a special suit powered by the technology of the bird people which allows her to execute daring acrobatic feats, Samus pursues the airborne life form, Metroid, throughout the universe. Samus is another character who relies heavily on projectiles. Her charge cannon can be a quick attack to rack up damage, or a powerful attack to send other players flying.”

[edit] Super Smash Bros. Melee

Raised by the mighty Chozo race, Samus Aran is a bounty hunter from outer space, who travels the stars while thwarting the evil plans of the Space Pirates and keeping the deadly parasite race of Metroids under control. In Melee, Samus is another extremely versatile character who performs very well on the field. With one of the best long-range arsenals in the game courtesy of her arm-cannon, as well as strong close-combat capabilities, Samus is a tough nut to crack.

[edit] Role in SSE

After getting her Power Suit back she and Pikachu defeat Ridley. Afterwards they proceeded to help Captain Falcon, Diddy Kong, Donkey Kong, and Olimar Stop the subspace bombs in the bomb factory. When they try to escape, they are confronted by Meta-Ridley and must fight him off again.

[edit] Super Smash Bros 3DS/Wii U

Samus makes her fourth appearance in Super Smash Bros 3DS/Wii U. She retains her Final Smash from the previous game, but with one key difference, the Zero Laser doesn't transform her into Zero Suit Samus.
