Her Name is

Samus Aran is the main protagonist of the Metroid series. A human female raised by aliens who is a bounty hunter by profession and goes around planets looking for the next job. Along the way, she fights aliens and monsters in order to protect the galaxy from her old enemies and new ones on the rise.

Metroid games are often ranked among the greatest of all time. The series has been represented in other Nintendo media, including the Super Smash Bros. series.

Sometimes Samus sheds her signature orange space suit for a more comfortable skin-tight suit called the "Zero Suit". In this special blue suit Samus is more flexible and can jump higher, as well as do more high kicks, which give her a stealthy advantage. She also carries a stun gun that fits perfectly with this attire for when she goes on stealth missions.
