Zero Suit Samus (ゼロスーツサムス, Zero Suit Samus) is a playable character in Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo Switch. Her return in Super Smash Bros. 4 was announced during a Super Smash Bros. Direct on April 8th, 2014, which coincided with the 10th anniversary of the European release of Metroid: Zero Mission. Like Sheik, Zero Suit Samus is now a standalone character, which means that she cannot activate or deactivate her Power Suit under any circumstances. Alésia Glidewell reprises her role as Zero Suit Samus' voice actor, albeit via recycled voice clips from Super Smash Bros. Brawl.

Trophy Description

Samus is far from helpless when her Power Suit is deactivated. Sure, she loses a lot of the moves and weapons she had access to before, but her Jet Boots pick up the slack! She also has the Paralyzer, a versatile weapon that can shock her rivals or change into a Plasma Whip to grab edges and enemies.


  • Zero Suit Samus is the only character who has more than one method of accessing her tether recovery.
  • Although Zelda and Sheik have alternate costumes that correspond to their costumes' respective orders, Samus and Zero Suit Samus do not follow this trend. Zero Suit Samus lacks a purple alternate costume to match Samus' Gravity Suit, while her last two alternate costumes consist of her civilian clothes instead of variations of the Zero Suit.
