Dark Samus (ダークサムス, Dark Samus) is a character from the Metroid series, specifically the Metroid Prime games.
Dark Samus appears as a trophy and as a sticker. Additionally, a "Dark Samus" appears in Co-Op Event 7: Battle of the Dark Sides, though it is merely a blackened version of Samus and not the actual Dark Samus. It teams up with Dark Link against the two players that plays as their light counterparts, Link as player one and Samus as player two.
The description is inaccurate, as Dark Samus' suit is a warped version of Samus' Phazon Suit and her origin actually is known, as she is the Metroid Prime reborn as a Phazon-based human/Metroid hybrid following the creature's absorption of Samus' DNA and Phazon Suit at the end of the game.
As an Assist Trophy
Dark Samus appears in her design from Metroid Prime 3: Corruption. Some of her attack animations are similar to Samus's, such as her down tilt and up smash. She hops around with long jumps, attacking with three different moves:
Before leaving, she poses with her Arm Cannon in front of her face. Like several other Assist Trophies, she can be defeated if she takes enough hits, where she will leave by fading out in a bright blue flash.
Dark Samus's color scheme is also the basis of one of Samus's alternate colors. In an event match, this color scheme is used to simulate Samus battling Dark Samus. Similarly, the color scheme appears in a co-op event match that features several playable antagonists as opponents.
Dark Samus is a doppelgänger of Samus Aran, created when the defeated Metroid Prime absorbed Samus' Phazon Suit after the final battle of Metroid Prime. The result was a phenomenally strong creature, with the same abilites as the real Samus, as well as powerful Phazon-based attacks.
