A crossover idea that my friend and I tossed around. I seem to redesign Samus Aran a lot, but I can't deny how fun it is.

Persona X Metroid crossover: Samus Aran designed in "Persona"-styled high-school uniform and paired with her Persona, the Chozo/Varia Suit. Some design motifs-- I tried making her Persona look as humanoid and smoother fabric-based, as a lot of Persona designs are; it also sports that footless Persona motif.

What Arcana do you think Samus best fits? I'm thinking Chariot or Empress, though Strength and Justice fit too. Anyways, enjoy! Comments and critiques appreciated. :)

Wait, which Arcana? I think High Priestess,  because it's arcana of Johanna persona, the only female Pope, thus she was contoversal.

Well this could be closer to actually happening with Shin Megami Tensai x Fire Emblem.

Ahaha. I suppose that could be one of the design benefits. I was thinking more of Mitsuru's long dress uniform but decided to stick with the regular school outfit that you would see the P3 FeMC variant might wear.

Thanks for the comment!

......I didn't even know I needed this.

As for the Arcana, I suppose the best one would be Empress, because while she is calculating, methodical and dangerous, deep down she is still a caring and sentimental individual. I mean, remember that baby Metroid she looked after? She treated it like it was her child. And in Metroid Fusion, she recalls her fondest memories of her time with Malkovich.

Yup, I can definitely agree on those points there. Some of the strong characters in Persona too (Mitsuru Kirijo) fit that role of calculating, powerful leader role, with a touch of motherly sympathy.

Chozus, of the Strength Arcana. A goddess clad in full Metal armor, usually depicted as orange or purple. Nicknamed the "Colony Destroyer," it is actually a victim of circumstance in myth, intending to save the worlds it causes the detonation of. The Chozo are said to have revered a certain human as the god's second coming.


Hey. I tried.

That was an excellent description. Haha. I particularly like the "Colony destroyer" detail: Samus does blow up a lot of planets after all.

Ah, I remember coming across this piece of art last year on Tumblr! You did a nice job with it! Really digging the design of "Persona" Samus' arm cannon. :)
