Samus vs Cyclops

Suggested by Sonic Samus and Cyclops are both fighters who really use a lot of long range tactics although they can fight up close as needed. Samus would usually crush Cyclops when considering base stats but his Phoenix Mode is definitely way too much for Samus. Samus’ Zero Laser just won’t be able to compete here and ultimately that’s where Cyclops will pull ahead. His firepower is unmatched. Cyclops wins.

Bayonetta vs Samus

Suggested by Sonic Samus is definitely incredibly skilled, but this is one match that she can’t win. Bayonetta’s “bats within” skill will make landing a hit on her very difficult. Samus’ energy attacks will basically be ineffective and while her hand to hand moves could deal some damage, Bayonetta is every bit as fast as Samus if not faster. The bounty hunter is ultimately a little out of her depth in this battle. Bayonetta wins.

Shulk vs Samus

Suggested by Sonic Samus is definitely a fighter who will give Shulk more of a fight than the last two. Her armor can withstand a lot of damage and Samus can also move at very high speeds. Her array of weapons will keep Shulk busy, but ultimately it will be hard to tag him. Not only does he also have super speed, but his pre-cog will also help him in trying to dodge her attacks. Samus is powerful, but ultimately I don’t think she is quite in the same league as Shulk. She can give him a solid fight, but once he gets serious it’ll all be over. Shulk wins.

Palutena vs Samus

Suggested by Destroyer This one is a bit tricky. Both Palutena and Samus have great offensive options. Palutena can fly and teleport so she definitely has the aerial advantage, but on the ground Samus definitely wins. Samus knows close quarter combat techniques and her suits give her a nice degree of super speed. In the end I’m thinking Samus will take this more times than not. Her fundamentals are simply superior and that really does go a long way. Samus wins.

Mikasa vs Samus

Suggested by Destroyer Mikasa is definitely a very solid fighter and she’s always been a pretty cool character. That being said, she isn’t quite ready to take on Samus. Both of them are basically superhuman in terms of physical ability, but Samus has the decisive advantage when you take into account her armor. With that she heavily outranks Mikasa in both power and speed. Samus also gets an incredible arsenal of projectiles that she can use to completely overwhelm the scout. Samus wins.

Lucario vs Samus

Suggested by Sonic It’s time for a battle of powerhouses. Samus has a lot of power in that armor of hers and can easily land some devastating hits in close quarters thanks to her speed and agility. It won’t be enough to stop Lucario though. Lucario was already powerful before he obtained his Mega Evolution. With it he has ascended to a much higher level than Samus and she just won’t be able to keep up with his speed. Lucario wins.

Samus vs Bewear

Suggested by Sonic Bewear and Samus are both heavyweights whose attacks pack a lot of power behind them. Samus does have the edge in speed though and her long range options are certainly better. I don’t think this will be an easy fight, but at the same time I do think it’s one that Bewear will certainly lose. Samus has too many options with her various armors and she is also the more strategic fighter. Bewear won’t be catching her unaware. Samus wins.

Mega Man vs Samus

Suggested by Sonic Samus is a strong fighter and certainly one of Nintendo’s most powerful protagonists. Her speed is at a high level and her Zero Laser is likely more powerful than any of Mega Man’s attacks. Mega Man does still have the edge physically though as we’ve seen what he is capable of in titles like Gigamix. He has more defense than Samus and what he lacks in martial art skills he makes up for in his large arsenal of abilities. Samus won’t be able to get past his skills and experience. Mega Man wins.

Kiva vs Samus

This is going to be another close loss for Kiva. I’d say that his physical stats are all fairly close to Samus. They’re both very fast as well as very strong. This really comes down to the fact that I consider Samus to be a little faster than Kiva and that I believe her Zero Laser would take him down for the count. Things look troubling, but I’m sure that Kiva can find his way back to the winner’s circle! Samus wins.

Samus vs Ryu

Samus is one of the stronger Nintendo leads and she can fight well from short or long range. That being said, it’s not enough to take Ryu down for the count. Ryu isn’t used to fighting weapons with advanced technology, but that will only give Samus a slight edge. Ryu still has the superior speed and fighting ability at his disposal and his discipline in the martial arts will help him keep calm. Ryu’s Hadouken will be able to get past all of the weaponry Samus has. Ryu wins.
