Samus Aran is the main protagonist of the Metroid franchise, and one of the most famous and acclaimed playable characters in videogame history due to being one of the first female ones.


Centuries into the future, Samus's colony was massacred by Space Pirates when she was a child, leaving her a terrified orphan. She was adopted by the benevolent alien Chozo race, where she was trained, cared for, and injected with their DNA and turned into a superhuman. She grew up to use her amazing powers to become the galaxy's most feared bounty hunter.

Abilities and equipmentEdit

Aside from having amazing superhuman capabilities (especially in the agility department) due to her training and Chozo DNA, Samus is never seen without her trusty power armor, equipped with a Heads-Up-Display, arm-cannon capable of firing missiles, and grappling hooks.
