Sad but hilarious.

We shall have no more disagreement with the sexualisation of Samus! Clearly Nintendo sees it that way, and Nintendo's word goes! :awesome:

Yeah, some admin should go ahead and lock that "Samus as a Sex Symbol" thread now. :awesome:

Yeah. For the record, here's the original Japanese, which translates roughly into "I'm going to enjoy drawing this" or "I'm going to energetically draw this!"

気合い入れて描いておきます!

Not really a high point for the developers. There's some other sexist things there, too, like the description of the lips. BTW, here's what tarakolooks like.

Wait, so Nintendo actually put that on their website? Wow, no wonder this artwork never went on English websites, even if it is hilarious. XD

Thanks, Cap! That was very enlightening. My gf is going to try making her top lip black for the MZM look when she does the ZSS cosplay, now, to see how the aesthetic works.

It's nice to know that the high heels were actually a "DO NOT WANT!" warning, and not an idea that they considered putting her through. I could just imagine them getting stuck in a crack on Zebes or something while shes running.

Me too, but I thought the same thing when I saw it. She looks way too old for her earliest mission in the series. They've got to have some room for character growth in there.

I just looked at the translated page, more exactly the one on 'chozo herb pouch'.
I'm wondering about that and if anyone sees where I'm coming from.
They said in the text the herbs 'enhance' their ability, so I started thinking that the herbs might be some sort of a drug.

I am just crazy, or are you guys seeing what I'm seeing. O.o
chozo + pouch = super (hippie) chozo

Actually, didn't the Chozo repress any kind of aggressive behavior in their genetic material? So maybe they needed this kind of thing to bring it back.

Yeah, that freaks me out a little.

Sylux! We need a physiological theory! :cool:

:awesome:

Well, it only says they can curl up into a sphere right? That doesn't confirm that they were rolling across the surface of Crateria and spinning through the corridors of Tourian and Green Hill Zone. If they can, then they should have at least had a scene where Old Bird tries to gives Samus a demonstration. zO_o

No, I think they mean it's more like berzerker mushrooms - it puts them into a fighting frenzy. Wouldn't be surprised if it enhanced their reaction times, too.

The Chozo mental block probably wasn't something they have naturally, since they used to make weapons and armor. (Unless they fought robots...) Might have even coincided with MB's creation.

You make a good point, AU. It could be referring to the Spin Jump, but might not as well.

the Chozo Warrior is in battle.
The bit portion that goes into the tube leads to a skin pouch.

Various aromatic herbs and stimulating seeds are put inside the
pouch; when the Chozo smells these, they will enhance his
fighting mood.


That is one of the coolest things I've ever read. I would love to see a Chozo Warrior in action during an Other M cut scene, (possible a flashback to Samus's past).

Word!


Meanwhile, guys, get over the 'sex symbol' discussion. Like the overwhelming majority of young protagonists in fiction, male and female alike, Samus is made out to be attractive. There is nothing wrong with this, provided that there are other elements to her character than just her looks - and there are.

Link doesn't get this kind of attention being called a sex symbol, and yet there are more than a few female gamers who think he's attractive.
