|~ Samus Aran|
Samus Aran is the central protagonist of the Metroid franchise and arguably one of the most iconic heroines in video game history. She appears in Death Battle's first episode, Boba Fett VS Samus Aran, as well as the remastered version, where she fought Star Wars bounty hunter Boba Fett.
Samus Aran was originally an inhabitant of the Earth colony K-2L. Following a space pirate raid on the colony, which led to her parents' death at the hands of Ridley, Samus Aran, as the lone survivor, was adopted by the bird-like species Chozo and was injected with their DNA, making her faster and stronger than the average human. She then grew up to be a bounty hunter, going all across the galaxy armed with her Arm Cannon and Power Suit to complete her missions across the universe, from planet to planet.
