Since 1986, when the first Metroid game came out, Samus was applauded as the first dominant female protagonist in video game history. She is also one of the top characters in the Super Smash Bros. Series ever since she joined the original Super Smash Bros in 1999. Sam is a Hebrew name meaning “God has heard”.
