I know I shouldn't but I get annoyed by sexy Samus pics on the internet.
I don't why Samus and no one else.
I know all about rule34 and I know it's my fault for looking.
Almost every other popular sexy female character is pushed as a sex symbol as eye candy for horny boys (& girls I suppose) so I expect to see them as rule34.

Samus is different or at least she used be, she was a tough badass merciless killer, she's wiped out entire species' destroyed planets (ok not on propose) and then came the zero suit and instantaneously turned her in a blonde bimbo in heels.

It took everything interesting and unique about the character and reduced her to skintight suit wearing fap material.
I mean I wander if Samus was a brunette or had black hair would be as popular in the world of rule34?

I actually don't have a problem with Zero Suit Samus, I know sounds like a contradiction to I previously typed.
It's not the suit I have an issue with, it's how the character is always used.
As just another blonde bimbo getting ***** by a monster ****.
Or as love sick woman who pines for attention from Snake or Megaman or Master Chief or even her arch nemesis Ridley.
I mean seriously Ridley?
I don't see pictures of Mario getting ****ed by Bowser (maybe Bowsette but I digress) or Sonic getting on with Robotnik, I suppose it exists but anyways.

Not every single female character has to be a pornstar.

So can I have Samus as she is a bounty hunter, as tough space warrior, as a survivor, as a hero, as a woman.
Not a pornstar.

Like IsmaR said, fans will always do their thing.
You can't control people's imagination and you should remember all that fanart is non-canon, so it shouldn't be a problem to simply ignore it.
Samus still remains the badass bounty hunter she has always been.

Even in the very first Metroid game on the NES, Nintendo opted to show Samus in a bikini.

It has always been this way.

Those pixels are definitely a turn-on. I agree that the zero suit started it all. Then SSBB really focused on ZSS' breasts and ass when she made her debut in SSE. In MZM, the scene after Samus' ship crashed shows off her ass and I'm sure anyone with a dirty mind at least had an idea pop into their head. It's understandable that underneath the armor, Samus is going to be wearing something that's snug because it won't be getting in the way of the armor. It's possible to make clothing made of elastane and polyester not show off those curves as easily.

It's definitely been a progression with the graphic technology.
Super Metroid added quite a bit more detail to her figure in the Game Over death animation:

I also agree that Brawl was probably the turning point. I'd probably get banned if I posted the .gif of her dropping down from the air vent. :laugh:
At least she seems to at least be wearing a sports bra or something in Ultimate.

Samus has and never will be a dumb sexy blonde woman. I think its disgusting that people even see her as such. There's nothing wrong with her. She's shown skin before, god forbid. Samus still is a tough bad ass, and she has a heart. People want her to be a silent mindless robot that never comes out of the suit. People have complained about seeing her eyes and that shes a human with human emotions. That's bull****, straight up bull****. Samus is Samus, take it for leave it. I will not apologize for standing up for her. Ever.
Something I use a lot when defending Samus, straight from her true voice. https://youtu.be/HOfVfgo7zvY?t=244

Other M may have not been a good well written game, but I don’t disagree with the VA there who speaks with heart.

I very much like the story of Other M but that's okay. :)
Jessica knows what the hell shes talkin' about.

Explicit imagery is also immoral in general
depends who you are.

Nintento should be ashamed of themselves. Samus has the sexiest kick of all time. Inappropriate for young children!

Do people not realize that Ness can't absorb missiles?
That Samus is me and I fully understand Ness was absorbing my charge shots. I was completely messing with that Ness. I dont know if you watched til the end, but I nair'ed that Ness out of existence, hence the "sexy kick". :^)

Edit: Missiles to charge shots... I misspoke!

The Ness was absorbing your Charge Shot energy blasts, not your Homing or Super Missiles. Ness can absorb Samus's Neutral B Charge Shot and also her Down B bombs. However, Ness cannot absorb Samus's Side B Missiles. The Missile hitbox can't be absorbed and hits Ness/Lucas, canceling the PSI Magnet move before blowing up in his face.
So another way to mess with a Ness is to mix up what I fire at them. If I fire a Missile followed immediately by a charge shot, he can't absorb them both. Firing them in that order also ensures he won't heal 30% from absorbing the charge shot and then taking only 12% from the missile for net % gain. And if you can get them to panic, freeze and hide in shield because their trusted absorb technique suddenly isn't working, a fully charge shot + a Super Missile will break his shield.
Some Ness players will try to Bat back the Missile, but that's when I'll mix up Homing and Super Missiles, taking advantage of that delay of the Super Missile to throw off their timing since the Bat has a lot of start up.

What young children? I thought guys in their mid 20s and above play this game clearly meant for kids. :D

Thanks for the advice, Downshift! I actually didn't know that the missiles could not be absorbed!
Still a little off topic, but it may also help you.
When going against characters with reflectors (that also work on Missiles), you can jump and fire a midair Homing Missile to bait out the reflector. Since the Homing Missile will have to take a downward angle to hit the opponent, they will reflect back upwards and it will not hit you. Then you can fast fall and charge in with an attack or grab while they're still in their reflector's endlag.

I like this a lot :)

You're reacting like 'showing some personality' and 'showing a beautiful sexy body' are the exact same thing.

I love women's beauty in general and I enjoy eroticism, so I really dislike when it's obviously used as a mere bait. I had not played Zero Mission by the time the Brawl trailer came out, so I didn't understand and I was disappointed by Nintendo doing the same thing as every company in the world: showing off a sexy woman because 'eye candy'... I thought Samus was supposed to be different. For me, who had only played Prime 1, Samus was that strong warrior whose deadly efficience has nothing to do with her genitals. Yes, there are those old game over and the victory scene of Metroid 1. I don't really like it either, but at least they are details, almost Easter eggs. The Zero Suit is a totally different level.

'Yeah, yeah, you're the best mercenary in the entire universe. BUT you're also a WOMAN. So you have to have a perfect model body, and you have to show it. Ass, boobs, that's what people want to see. High heels are not optional. And don't forget to put some make-up and to arrange your hair. There you go! A beautiful Barbie like every female in every fiction! Of course boys are looking at you, that's the point... They will think of you too, he he he. What! Sexism?! Not at all! You don't get it: YOU ARE A WOMAN. You are sexy, or you don't matter. That's the only way for you to exist. That's how it works. What do you mean, you want to go back into your armor?...'
