Samus VS. Motherbrain by VegasMike Samus VS. Motherbrain by VegasMike
This illustration is dedicated to one of my favorite games of all time, Super Metroid for the SNES released in 1994. I spent hours on the game and took almost a month to beat it. The best part of the game is the final confrontation with the Mother Brain. 22 YEAR OLD SPOILER ALERT!!! Here's a link to the final boss battle: www.youtube.com/watch?v=Xx-oNU… The battle takes place around the 8 minute mark. So the first time I played this I was amazed at how it made me feel! When the Metroid came to my rescue only to be killed I was both sad and furious, craving revenge...Then the power of the Metroid creates the most satisfying way to defeat the boss! This is the moment just before Samus unleashes her revenge. The fallen Metroid lays in the foreground while the energy builds for the final attack. I know some may be upset I didn't put Samus in the Varia Suit but I wanted to depict the scene with the classic colors. I hope you all like it! I had a great time working on it and learned a lot.

Hot Damn! Super Metroid is my favorite game of all time (tied only with the equally awesome Metroid Prime), and this does the final fight justice! Oh man, I get tingles thinking abut the epic curb-stomping that Samus going to lay down on the ever-so-deserving Mother Brain. Fantastic job, just utterly awesome job.

WOW. Impressive detailing and overall work here! I like how the remains of the Super Metroid are behind Samus, so you know what just happened. And now, Samus is about to cut loose with the Hyper Beam. Nice knowin' ya, Mother.

Haha glad you like it! I was reluctant to add the super metroid husk since it just disappears in the game but I felt it was a good framing device. :)

No, I based this off the original Super Metroid game. I'm familiar with Other M but never played it...

And you're all like: PEW PEW PEW
And mother brain goes all: BEREEW!!

By the way, that is the varias suit, the only one that really changes the colors is the Grav Suit.

And for reference, the Grav suit is Purple, and is surprisingly not necessary to complete the game, like a lot of upgrades.

Shadowstalker55 Featured By Owner Feb 3, 2016
Well if you go by Other M standards, the Grav Suit is just a purple aura when Samus is in an extreme or altered gravity environment.

WE DO NOT SPEAK OF OTHER M.

Shut up Samus, you're a bounty hunter. It's a fucking metroid.
