Talk:Zero Suit Samus

From SmashWiki, the Super Smash Bros. wiki

I doubt Zero Suit Samus is 198lbs, also, her page for her in the power suit says 198lbs, and I doubt that thing is made of gas. Samus' ideal body weight is 176 pounds, and it sould be easy to believe a futuristic suit of alien manufacture weighs only 22 pounds. I will go ahead ad put her weight as 176lbs, if other reviewers see this to be wrong or something please put speculated or something, but she definately is not 198lbs.

Given her build, I would put her at no more than 160 lbs, but that would be merely an estimate. - Gargomon251 (talk) 06:07, 28 May 2008 (UTC)

also stated is her hair color has been green and brown, nope, that is just Samus, she has never appeared with non-blond hair while in the Zero Suit, which she first was in the zero suit in 2004. SmashingJohn (talk) 00:43, 4 June 2008 (UTC)

Uhh, should we really mention her breasts? I don't think its really necessary. Just my opinion.Smorekingxg456 (talk) 21:22, 30 August 2008 (UTC)

Wait, sorry i read it wrong. It was saying where the lights were, but should we say large? Kind of um... whatever word you want to put in there.Smorekingxg456 (talk) 21:24, 30 August 2008 (UTC)

CAfinator's wording is good.Smorekingxg456 (talk) 02:13, 31 August 2008 (UTC)

I agree with JtM, but should we say like chest or something ust to say that there's a light on her front?Smorekingxg456 (talk) 00:02, 2 September 2008 (UTC)

Well, I think we should say breast (not to sick, even though they're SEXY!) because the cool-looking pink lights are on her breast, not her general chest. Her breasts ARE large, by the way. It might also be the fact that a form-fitting suit hugs them, not muffling their size. Gargomon251 (talk)

Reptillius, I know that's you. I read the history.Maybe I should tell a sysop your impersonating Gargomon...Smorekingxg456 (talk) 17:10, 2 September 2008 (UTC)

Really? Reptiliusofpeace (talk) 17:14, 2 September 2008 (UTC) or is it???...

Seeing as in the history, Gargomon hasn't made any edits to this page, and when i check your edits I see that YOU put Gargomon's signature by typing it in yourself, I think that leaves you withh no other explanation.Smorekingxg456 (talk) 17:16, 2 September 2008 (UTC)

I admit it. dundundun...... But Gargomon made ONE edit to this page...I think. Reptiliusofpeace (talk) 17:30, 2 September 2008 (UTC)

One, about her weight, but not about your perveted views on ZSS.Smorekingxg456 (talk) 17:33, 2 September 2008 (UTC)

Hey, they're not opinions, they're the truth. Don't tell me you disagree with me; I'm not perverted. Oh yeah, and I would estimate her weight to be about 145 pounds. Reptiliusofpeace (talk) 17:39, 2 September 2008 (UTC)

I may be a self-proffessed pervert, but it's obvious that comment wasn't me. And I can be reasonably sensible most of the time, even so. Also I don't appreciate my name being used like that. - Gargomon251 (talk) 14:28, 3 September 2008 (UTC)

Yeah; sorry Gargomon, won't happen again. Reptiliusofpeace (talk) 19:32, 3 September 2008 (UTC)

Artwork[edit]

The Other M artwork and the Zero Mission artwork should have their spots swapped on the page. The Other M artwork is more recent and should be her main image. I tried to fix it a while ago but it got messed up. ChuckNorris24.png 17:55, 10 July 2012 (EDT)

T Rating[edit]

Maybe this is ones of causes that caused brawl to be T For Teen Rated. --Igor The Mii (talk) 17:40, 7 July 2013 (EDT) PK FLASHBOMB

Except Melee is also rated T. Multiple reasons for Melee and Brawl to be considered rated T, such as the violence and crude humor. Not worth mentioning that ZSS's appearance resulted in Brawl's rating when Brawl probably would have received the T rating anyway. MegaTron1XDDecepticon.png 21:44, 7 July 2013 (EDT)

Height and build[edit]

Has anyone done comparisons of ZSS's size/build in Other M and in SSB4? IIRC she was completely dwarfed by the male characters in Other M even while wearing high-heels; in SSB4, she still has the heels but is still more comparable to the taller characters in height. Furthermore, it looks like her musculature did change slightly between Zero Mission and Other M, while she has roughly the same build in Brawl and SSB4.--Darthrai (talk) 14:19, 14 November 2015 (EST)

She looks shorter here. Aardvarkian (TalkContributions) 14:22, 14 November 2015 (EST)

I see what you mean, since her model is roughly the same height in both Smash games with the heels making her a bit shorter - however, the point is, does she have her height from Other M (where again, she was very petite even with her heels)? In any case, you have Palutena being made much shorter than she was in Uprising, so I'm not sure if Samus' new height is an intentional reference to Other M (and I hope it isn't).--Darthrai (talk) 14:27, 14 November 2015 (EST)

EDIT: Just had another look at the picture, and it seems that she indeed looks shorter (particularly, her legs aren't as long). But is this universal? Someone could, say, take a side-to-side comparison of her against someone like Captain Falcon in both games and also compare it to her height against the males in Other M, unless this isn't worth pursuing. At least according to this discussion, Zamus is bulkier in SSB4 than in Brawl, so that's something (but again, not sure if worth noting).--Darthrai (talk) 14:31, 14 November 2015 (EST)

EDIT 2: There's this screenshot, which shows her at a height similar to Rosalina. It probably doesn't mean that her height difference from Other M is worth noting, if it exists at all, but it also shows that they probably didn't directly use her shorter height from that game (thank god).--Darthrai (talk) 23:13, 14 November 2015 (EST)

ZSS is a head length shorter than Rosalina. I can't link to it, but search in google images "zero suit samus height" and you'll likely see it. Aardvarkian (TalkContributions) 00:16, 15 November 2015 (EST)

Also note that Rosalina was made to be pretty tall in this game. Aardvarkian (TalkContributions) 00:17, 15 November 2015 (EST)

As an update, I've been watching Other M cutscenes extensively and noted that ZSS looks skinnier and more youthful than in both of her Smash appearances. I therefore noted (both on this page and the SSB4 page) that ZSS's design retains the general elements and body type from her Brawl and ZM design; even comparing the top two images on this page, it's pretty clear that her legs are thicker in ZM than in OM. IMO this information seems objective, unlike with her height compared to Other M. --Darthrai (talk) 12:03, 7 February 2016 (EST)

Decided to remove most of the details on her physical appearance; I disagree with another user over her height, so it seems that there's some subjectivity involved (especially since character heights in Smash, in general, are hard to directly compare with their source material). I'll probably re-add a few details that can't be argued on, such as the hairstyle, but it seems that the build/height are very subjective.Darthrai (talk) 18:39, 24 May 2017 (EDT)

Samus Returns artwork[edit]

Does anyone think the Other M artwork of ZSS in the infobox could/should be replaced with the Samus Returns artwork? While SSBU ZSS still wears a version of the Other M Zero Suit (now with Zero Mission colors it seems), she's definitely bulked up and that may indicate Samus Returns influence to some extent, as it gives her more of a passing resemblance to Samus Returns ZSS than Other M ZSS. But that may be subjective. Darthrai (talk) 11:35, 18 June 2018 (EDT)
