The likes of Gaijin Goombah and other, mostly male, personalities have been addressing the issue with Zero Suit Samus stating that there isn’t a problem or that the outrage on it’s own is the problem. I am a fellow Penis American but I, being the great…

I do agree 100% though about how they aren’t sticking with the lore on samus’ abilities. Like you said, she is not 5’5 she is easily over 6 feet without the suit. In the manga, which is canon as it is offically written by nintendo shows her leapping huge distances on her own without her boots when she was just a teenager. She shouldn’t need boots. Honestly I think they gave her the boots due to the success of bayonetta. They she has them to be over the top, since everything about her is awesomely over the top. But as long as she doesnt keep those boots in the main series and goes back to her correct size then all is good. Perhaps they also added the boots just for more visible flair to her attacks and model.

Because the Ice Climbers know how to use ice powers based on their lore, R.O.B. in his lore has always shot lasers from his eyes and used gyros as deadly weapons, Pit’s lore definitely saw him using a light-arrow shooting Bow before Brawl, and Bowser’s lore always featured a transformation into a creature from hell in the form of Giga Bowser. The fact that Smash creates its own canons while loosely taking the real canon seriously isn’t anything new, and practically breaks the “Why was this even done” argument. 

True, smash does take its own liberites, which I think its great. I wish just saying that because I wished they kept her height. I can forgive the boots to give her more flare and show. It actually looks awesome seeing the jet flames from her kicks.

It makes sense in its own right, as Smash 4 Zamus isn’t Other M Zamus, it’s Zero Mission Zamus with a few tweaks. Samus was thought to have been made shorter in Zero Mission than usual, hence where the 5’5” height thoughts come from, unlike Other M, where she’s officially 6’3”. This means there is indeed a height difference between these two Samus’, and the Jet Heels making up for said height isn’t as farfetched as many take it for. In a way, it’s not just making canon broken by having two different Samus’ from two different points in time, but is actually correcting said Canon in the same time to show that Samus is indeed not as tall as she was in Other M while in Zero Mission. 

I can understand the thought process of wanting to believe it’s sexist, but usually people should research and look into things in the Metroid universe BEFORE saying that said design choice is sexist. It’s like people saying Ridley’s too big for Smash Bros, no thought or research put into it at all.

I thought her height as over 6 foot was sad back in super metroid. Personally I like tall samus, makes her a bit more badass, but shorter is not terrible.

But yeah research helps a lot. A lot of people even forget or ignore the manga too. That has a lot of stuff on her background as well.

Zero Mission was a remake of the first Metroid, which took place long before Super Metroid, which includes the entire prime series and Metroid 2 in between the two games. It wouldn’t be that farfetched to believe that Samus grew taller over her time as a bounty hunter, especially when we have no idea how old she was when she started her Bounty Hunter profession and how old she was in between the first Metroid and Super Metroid. 

Another thing that doesn’t make sense in the terms of being sexist is how everybody is acting as if this small aesthetic change to ZM Zamus is any change to her character. She can still kick major ass, with or without the heels, and her Brawl self certainly showed that, although it’s indeed theorized that said Zamus may draw inspirations from the Prime series but none-the-less, and this also helps with the game balancing in removing tether recoveries. 

She’s still Samus, she’s still in the state where she fearlessly climbed aboard the Space Pirate Mothership, against the odds, and ultimately cleared them out and destroyed the ship along with the huge Mother Computer, Mecha Ridley. I completely and utterly find it pointless to argue about as A.) Not only is it already set in stone in the game but B.) as I said already, makes sense from the standpoint of what Zamus is initially based on.

Yeah makes sense that she would grow taller.

I agree fully. I still think she is the badass we know and love. I think a lot of people are still hurting from other m, and are being very critical of nintendo thanks to that.

I’m just thinking per se that what if this samus is JUST MAYBE base of an upcoming metroid game that Nintendo has been hinting.

That would be cool. As long as the character isn’t awful like in other m, then I am fine with it… though I would be happier, if this is a sequal to fusion or other m, that she is made taller. If this is an earlier adventure, then she could be that height

Rumors has it that it’s retro studio next game since they have been working a mystery project sine donkey kong tropical freeze last October.

If that is the case awesome. They made amazing metroid games

Man this game has hit me hard… I am getting very into it. Still trying to see if I can get a video capturing device to record my matches, but in the meantime I was thinking of making post about how I do, and also an arachne guide.

Yeah I know I only just started, and making a guide now may seem…

I wouldn’t mind but it might be to early from you to give out advice/guides as you just started playing. I suggest playing more,maybe with other characters, and lurking around forums and character build sites and picking up what the more experienced players say. Just don’t pick up their attitude.

I have been lurking around smite fire looking at some of their builds. I admit I mostly have played arachne, but I have played a few others. Nu wa, Sobek, Hel, and Nemesis I tend to like the most, but I have only played a few other gods other then them. Playing others wouldn’t hurt.

I guess I wouldn’t make a full guide yet. Maybe just post what items I like for who, and see how people respond. Like for Arachne, I do like witchblade a lot for her. Not only does it give attack speed, movement speed, and physical protection, but it also lowers foes attack power and attack speed for just being nearby. I think that helps her survivablity quite well for me, het I never see anyone use it.

As for the attitude, so far people have been friendly. Only once did I come across a jerk. Still, I dont plan to become a jerk. If you think I am becoming one, just slap me.

You should probably look at high level gameplay videos (if there is any). Normally they would give alternate item builds for whatever suits there needs/groups need. And you may find out why Witchblade is commonly passed over.

I did a youtube search for arachne, and maybe I didnt look enough for something that explained that. Are there better places to look other then youtube?

Because platipi are cute dammit!

why isn’t it using it’s poison?

From the video description, it says its female. Only the male platypi have venomous spurs on the back of their hind legs. Females don’t have such a thing.

Ah, I did not know that. Such odd creatures these guys are. Thanks for the info
