Dark Samus is a somewhat popular choice for a Metroid newcomer. She is not like other Dark characters in their series (Dark Pit, Dark Link, etc.), because she isn't really a dark version of her. She is Phazon that took the shape of Samus' Phazon suit, and combined with Samus' DNA or something like that. She is also the main antagonist of Metroid Prime 3: Corruption. Also who gives a shit if she is an assist trophy damn. Maybe they can, idk, remove it? *gasp*
Why should she be playable? Edit
Because then there would be 3 Samus'. That would be hilarious. In actuality, she represents the highly successful Prime games, and she would be awesome. And she actually does shit in her games, unlike most of th
e other dark characters. Also, she isn't Ridley.
spoilers!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! don't read below unless you want them!!!
Dark Samus also is the Metroid Prime. So the Metroid Prime series is named after her. Damn, that deserves some recognition
add to this list if you support her
