To the Mother Brain, eliminating its own troops is just business.
Like the USS Enterprise and it's army of disposable "Red Shirts."
Yeah, the Stone Trek parodies of Star Trek kept a Dead Redshirt count every episode, and it always had a pounding sound effect to go with it. While watching "Devil in the Dark," when I saw a Redshirt get eaten by the creature, I did the sound effect for laughs. You can see some of the Stone Trek films on Newgrounds, including a music video.
I wonder how fast Samus can run without her armor and only Crono and his sword to fight off an army of X parasites, some of which may possess her powers.
If any possessed her powers they would be SA-X and she and Crono would be totally screwed in that case.
well if i remember my metroid back story correctly then she should have a pretty decent speed with out her power suit since the chozo world she was raised on had an environment that was deemed to harsh for normal humans (higher gravity, thiner atmosphere ect) so the chozo genetically altered her dna infusing it with theres granting her many of the physical ability's of a full born chozo, and although she's not going to be a match for any SA-X she is (or at least according to her back story) fully versed in chozo martial arts so she should be able to hold her own agest a pirate or two while crono kills the outher 1000 or so that get in there way (sadly i think she use's her suit so much she doesn't even know how to fight without it at times)
Also, it's HER who has the metroid capability to absorb the X, not her suit. Therefor, any X they run into are still screwed.
thats X in their natural state, if they are imitating something they have to be "killed" first so they can revert to their gelatinous normal form, THEN Samus can absorb them. Also, boss X in the metroid fusion game often attacked Samus with one of her powers without having to be an SA-X, in fact defeating them is what allowed her to get her powers back in the first place.
Yeah but those were formed from creatures which naturally possessed similar abilities, I doubt any space pirates have her actual powers.
in metroid prim there are a few pirates that have mimicked her suits beam weapons so she could face at least her beam weapons and missels in the pirate arsenal
also, the X can process data organically, so if they find a computer that has data about Samus' weapons on it, they could adapt it and make Samus' weapons.
Except that the COMMANDER is the one that kills off the red shirts personally.
