I got distracted doing my Western Metroid concept art project for school when I was trying to find out Samus’ height. Turns out in some official art for Super Metroid (1994) she’s described as such:

The Power Suit hides a strong, muscular woman. Samus is nearly six feet, three inches tall and weighs nearly 200 pounds.

Then it lists the exact numbers as 6’3” and 198lbs. That’s what’s “hidden” by the suit, not with the suit, as some people on the internet seem to be suggesting. If you look at the illustration, the suit doesn’t add much to her height anyway.

So anyway the point of all this is that Samus is now 5’3” and that sucks. I can’t find where this stat came from but it’s being quoted by several fans online, and if you obsessively compare screenshots from SSBB like I did, you’ll find that it’s accurate to the inch when she’s standing next to the 6’ tall Snake. So that blows. I think the 6’3” Samus seems way more likely to be an ex-soldier turned bounty hunter who pilots a power suit and doesn’t take shit from anyone. Also she’s a babe.

Disclaimer: I haven’t played a game in the Metroid series since the SNES, all knowledge from the internet, take this with a grain of salt.

This is a thing that’s legit been bugging me for a long ass time

This height and weight is still canon, so why in Other M is everyone at LEAST two heads taller?

BUILT TO DESTROY

If I’m interpreting my Metroid history/mythology correctly… (and the fact that I’ve played most of them)

Samus was orphaned at a young age and taken in by a highly advanced race of bird-warriors called the Chozo, and fostered on a *LOW-GRAVITY* planet. She was given medicine and nutritional care far in excess of anything the Galactic Federation could offer on any human world or colony. IN ADDITION—these twelve-foot tall, monstrous genome warriors INFUSED HER WITH CHOZO DNA, having absolutely no ethical or moral compulsion against gene therapy (we’re talking about a species so advanced they got BORED of techo-futuristic dwellings and started living in STONE TEMPLES FOR KICKS.)

Young Samus, having no context by which she may protest was totally OK with this and, presumably, underwent weapons training, survival training, and continued gene manipulation INTO HER 20s. I reiterate: the Chozo started treatment on her before puberty, meaning the numbers she reached upon adulthood were probably THE LOW END of what the Chozo assumed they could SAFELY do to ANY HUMAN’S bone density / musculature (on a low-gravity planet) before the results became dangerous outliers in their advanced projections. 

FUTHERMORE (And here we get into Metroid Prime’s mythos), the Chozo were a fatalistic, even nihilistic species who predicted their own downfall through mysticism and scientific analysis. Their records refer to Samus as “The Newborn,” and “The Hatchling,” and as the one predestined NOT to save them, but to bring “wrath,” down upon their enemies. 

The Chozo turned Samus into a gigantic murder machine, gave her a power suit composed of some of the most advanced technology in the known galaxy, and pushed her out the door to work as a bounty hunter for the Galactic Federation under the pretenses of capital gain but really TO TAKE VIOLENT REVENGE ON EACH AND EVERY ONE OF THEIR FOES. They made her into a Space Marine in a setting bereft of anything resembling a Space Marine.

And that, ladies and gentlemen, is why 6’5” is honestly lowballing it on her height (I’d put it at 7’5”, with avian features and crazy pinfeathers everywhere), why Samus is amazing, why devs need to Google human biology better, and why Metroid: Other M is NOT CANON.

And this, game devs, is why you need to sit everyone down on your team and make them watch some youtube videos of the Women’s events in the Olympics, and then put these in everyone’s bookmarks. Your future demographic gains thank you (WITH $$$$$).

I think the saddest people always try their hardest to make people happy

because they know what it’s like to feel absolutely worthless

and they don’t want anyone else to feel like that.

I was retweeted by Femininst Frequency once, probably about four months ago. My life was a living hell for a solid week. Turns out there are tons of men that follow Anita just to harass her and the women whose voices she amplifies. I blocked hundreds of men. Twitter’s report process for harassment is stressful and bloated, asking you to go seek out links and spend more time staring at the abusive words, so I only went through it when I received death threats or requests for suicide. 

I still get the odd “women don’t belong in video games, go clean the kitchen, kill yourself” every few weeks, but the week after she tweeted, especially those first 48 hours, solidified my decision to step even farther away from the gaming industry.

This is not worth it.

sweet internet jesus if someone likes how something looks and is happy about it keep your mouth shut and let them be happy even if you think it looks like satan threw up on a 1982 ford fiesta

The following is a list of times when you should offer your opinion…

I work in retail. I give honest opinions when asked. It’s just courtesy. And I don’t think about myself. I look at them.

I never told you to treat me like a princess I want you to treat me like a dragon, cower in fear before me and get me expensive shiny things

No wonder I hated when some people called me princess in a mean tone. I’m a motherfucking dragon!

Here’s a general rule. When an insult is directed at a woman, consider how it would have sounded directed at a man. If the result is ridiculous, then it’s probably sexist.
