This article is about Samus' appearance in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. For other uses, see Samus.
With her Charge Shot, Missile, and Bomb, Samus has three different projectiles to keep her opponents in check from a distance. When fully charged up, her Charge Shot is quite powerful. For her Final Smash, she launches a wide laser beam that can be moved up and down!
—Description from the Super Smash Blog.

Samus is a veteran fighter in the upcoming Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. Her return was hinted in the first teaser trailer in March 2018 before being officially confirmed at the E3 2018 Conference on June 12, 2018. Samus' appearance in this game is modelled after her appearance in Metroid: Samus Returns.
