History[edit]

Super Smash Bros. series[edit]

Super Smash Bros. Brawl[edit]

In Super Smash Bros. Brawl, Dark Samus does not appear in a physical form, though she still has both a collectible trophy and a sticker, both depicting her appearance in Metroid Prime 2: Echoes. In Subspace Emissary, her sticker can only be equipped by Samus and Zero Suit Samus, and gives them an increase in their battering resistance when equipped.

A "Dark Samus" appears in co-op Event 7: Battle of the Dark Sides, though while it is meant to represent this character, this Dark Samus is merely Samus's model recolored to be completely black.

Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS / Wii U[edit]

Dark Samus appears as an Assist Trophy in Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS / Wii U using her appearance from Metroid Prime 3: Corruption. She attacks using a variety of Phazon-based abilities, such as tentacles that sprout from the ground, a burst of shots from her arm cannon, or spherical missiles that home in on enemies. If enough damage is dealt to her, a ball of light forms around her before she disappears; otherwise, she simply disappears after a period of time. Dark Samus is also the basis for one of Samus' alternate colorations.

Dark Samus is identical to Samus in every way but color--she even uses similar attacks. There are many theories on the origin of Dark Samus, but none are proven. Dark Samus uses Phazon for energy and can absorb it to heal damage. Samus encounters Dark Samus a number of times.
