Metroid - Samus vs Ridley by SteveSketches Metroid - Samus vs Ridley by SteveSketches
I love the Metroid series. Of course my favorite boss is always Ridley, in any of the games. He's such an iconic opponent, and I really enjoy the running conflict that Samus has with him. I feel that besides the Metroids themselves, Ridley could be considered Samus' arch-nemesis. Anyway, in this image I wanted to draw Samus beating the crap out of Ridley. I also wanted to show her using her light whip in a unique way, since I feel it's a rather under utilized tool that she has. Of course, she only uses it when she's in her zero suit. Speaking of which, the internet seems obsessed with images of Samus' armor being blown off. I wonder why?

Yeah, you show that over grown space pterodactyl who's boss. <3

First,Ridleys feats have long overcome samus's so it's reasonable to say Ridley can beat the living hell out the the poor girl

and the internet loves her cause she's fucking sexy

Whoa, she's really got him in a Choke-Hold there. This would be epic to see in Super Smash Bros Brawl, due to how her suit is coming off much like it does for her Final Smash.

Oh and by the way, I saw this on Gelbooru recently. Did you post it there too or did someone else? I usually like to point out when I've seen something on Gelbooru as well.

I had a similar idea in one of the chapters for my fan-fic.

She'd wrap the plasma whip around his neck, and then quickly pull it back, searing him.

This picture couldn't be more epic.
If there was a follow-up to this with Samus gathering up her armor and putting it back on in a hurry, I would salute you.
Since there's not, let's just ogle Zero Suit Samus.

Well to be fair, she probably thought that after Super, the Pirates finally would be unable to revive him anymore. Samus's shock made sense. And besides, since she promptly got back to kicking Ridley's ass as usual a minute later, I didn't dwell on it.

her freak out dont make sense even then as teh only srouce of her fear of ridley is an obscure jpns only manga that she get sover her fear of him in to the point she makes fun of him

Wrong. Look at the ending screens to the Japanese version of Fusion. One of them shows her entire family under attack by Ridley.

In hindsight, it's sorta happened before too. Look at Meta Ridley's first appearance in Prime, and see the look in Samus's eyes. There it was more "You have got to be shitting me," while Other M was more "WHY ARE YOU STILL NOT DEAD?!"

Point is, Samus got caught flatfooted in Other M and had a brief PTSD blankout. She got better, got back to business, and moved on. A shame so many of her fans cannot.

Ridley's been one of my favorite VG bosses/dragons since I got into the series, all right, especially as I learned more and more about just how deep his enmity with Samus goes. I personally think that he's one of those things that just will never let the galaxy be at peace.

I agree. He's certainly entrenched himself in the mythos, and I'm glad he'll be around for as long as Samus is.
