Im just a little curious, how many people noticed that that wasnt the same suit she arrived in at the start of the comic?
*Raises hand* I like her oldschool suit more though, so I was silently hopeing she'd go back to oldschool... stasis tube isnt really helping my hopes though... moreso, makeing me farthr beleive it's SA-X
Oh dear lord RUN!
Oh man, I'm not sure what's going on! I'm supposed to know things like this! It's my whole identity!...WHO AM I!?!?
Its the SAX
if that is SAX, and she cant find her armor soon, theyre screwed.
howmuch you wana bet they find annother tube with a blue and black samus in it?
If you're referring to Dark Samus radde, never gonna happen, I can guarantee the Space Pirates couldn't catch that one, for crap sake the monster turns their bases into swiss cheese while searching for Phazon. Anyway, the Spaces Pirates really are stupid enough to capture an SA-X in the hopes of controlling it, too bad they'll probably fail.
the SA-X!? THATS INSANE!! Not only is it as powerful as Samus, it can asexually divide itself into an army, transform into anything its seen the DNA of, and it can even process data organically, learning essentially everything it needs to know. Its kinda like the Borg and Brainiac combined. The only weakness the SA-X and every other X-parasite has is metroids, and metroid DNA, which were their natural predators on their homeworld.
All of this data is from metroid fusion for GBA, in the timeline that would be Samus' last adventure so far. It also makes the surprising revelation that metroids were in fact created by the Chozo themselves for the sole purpose of preventing the X from destroying all life in the universe, which it can do if it assimilates a species that possesses space travel.
when I played fusion,I always mock the SA-X =P
To add to Angel85's trivia lesson, I believe we also find out that Metroid actually means "Ultimate Warrior"
And since this is post-fusion, wouldn't she just be able to grab SA-X (if she could get an opening) and just absorb it? that has always bothered me in the game.
Looks like I may have been right with the last comic.
The thing is, although Samus COULD absorb the SA-X, 1: She wouldn't regain the armour because the technology has to be reabsorbed into the suit, which she doesn't have (the suit is modula which is why it can do so). 2: Samus can't absorb them easily. She has to touch to X-Core. Which means destroying the armour... again, they are dead.
And yes, 'Metroid' in the ancient Chozo language does mean 'Ultimate Warrior'. They are 'warriors' to fight against the dreaded X-Parasite. Samus is a Metroid for two reasons, one she has their DNA infused into her (to save her life from an X Parasite) and because she is the final and most powerful Warrior of the Chozo.
In the last pannel Samus says "I hate to soud like you..." You missed the 'n' in Sound.
Wow and I thought I knew a lot about Metroid!
Good news is the SA-X would probably be more angry at the pirates for locking it up and breeding metroids than it would at samus who is an enemy of its enemies, which should make her an ally...(the whole reason it save her at the end of Fusion.
The SECOND shot heard 'round the world...
You got THAT right...o_o
but the SA-X saved samus at the end of fusion
And she absorbed it to defeat the omega metroid! Wtf is going on?!!
OH @#$% RUN!
finally a plot point I recognize.... fusion and megaman 8 were the only games I came close to reaching the end before reading this... I did start crono trigger at the beginning of last decade, but dropped it >_<
