Parasitic Doppleganger - SA-X by VariaZim Parasitic Doppleganger - SA-X by VariaZim
My liberal interpretation of Samus Aran-X from Metroid Fusion. I really like her as an antagonist. I couldn't decide on whether I liked her in her Varia suit or if I wanted to give her a Gravity suit so here's an alternate version here. i.imgur.com/ziv16Ah.jpg

I was always a bit curious how SA-X would look without the helmet since we know what Samus looks like....and yeah I can see this. They should've made her suit look like a parasite as you have it here. The face in the suit reminds me of Bishamon's armor from Darkstalkers.

Looks great, i just feel like the ponytail wasn't necessary, i mean, why would a parasite inside a suit need one? I think it would make more sense if her head fused with the suit, like some weird mass of blob, but i loved what you did with the arms and legs, really reminds me a Metroid Prime boss

I originally uploaded it to deviantart in Samus' Varia suit colours, but ended up switching it to her Gravity suit colours.

Y'know, I did have a dream about Sa-x once and she had a gravity suit.

She should have had it, but I think they were going for Samus' iconic look. I don't like when they do that. Samus looks best in Gravity Suit and Link looks best in his Red Tunic!!

I wanted to be purple in Other M :/

It's actually SA-X, not Samus metroid.wikia.com/wiki/SA-X

The X are parasites that infect an organism, kill it and become a doppelganger of them. The X infected Samus and her suit (which has organic components) but didn't manage to kill her. They did manage to become a copy of her while leaving her severely weakened. When you encounter it in the game you have to run the hell away from it because it's way stronger than the weakened Samus.

The floating Visor was really because it looked cool, but it also ties the design more to Samus I feel.

I did look at Nightmare's Soul Calibur III and IV outfits for reference actually :)

Charade was my favourite character to play as in Soul Calibur II

It's not Samus, it's a copy of her from Metroid Fusion. There's a parasite called the X that infect a host and (usually kill them) then become a copy.

O_O...That is one freaky monster! Yes, I do consider the SA-X a monster; because its actually a X copy with DNA from its previous host and Samus. Other than me rambling on about it, this is a well detailed picture :) Keep it up! :thumbsup:

SA-X is a monster! It isn't a human, it's a bunch of parasites pretending to be human.

This ones definatly better. haha. wow, never thought I'd see such a detailed and different fanart of SA-X. I also loved her in the game. She really made you feel weak, after all the games of samus just badassing her way through everything and ending every game as, what I like to call any character once theyve got all their possible upgrades, a 'godkiller'. Really refreshing to have her totally nerfed infront of SA-X. And kind of poetic that her greatest enemy was herself. I think this work captures that terror quiet well.
