Here are some of the best Samus Cosplay costumes ever made of Zero Suit Samus, Samus in her Varia Suit, and Young Samus!
As the fierce heroine in Nintendo’s Metroid action-adventure series, she has gathered many millions of fans since Gunpei Yokoi created her as Nintendo’s first female protagonist in the 1986 NES game Metroid. Since Samus Aran wore her Power Suit the entire game, it’s only at the end when she took it off that she was revealed to be a woman. This is still considered to be one of the biggest plot twists in video game history.
Here’s the Samus Aran image gallery of various fans cosplaying as her.

Watch the official Metroid: Other M Live-Action TV commercial. This epic video shows all 3 versions of Samus’ outfits that appeared for the first time in one game in the Wii title.
I love this Samus quote from the TV clip: “My past is not a memory. It’s a force at my back. It pushes and steers. I may not always like where it leads me, but like any story, the past needs resolution. What’s past is prologue.”
One of the cosplayers from the above gallery was interviewed. Accompanying the a little awkward host is the awesome Linda “VampyBitMe” Le, who in this video gets to talk at length about her cosplay.
