Samus to Wear Moon Shoes in New Smash Bros. Due to Feminist Criticism

Sakurai's decision killed two birds with one stone. 90's kids will feel more nostalgic, while 10's kids will no longer have the right to preach about patriarchal gender roles. They still will though.

Sakurai’s decision killed two birds with one stone. 90’s kids will feel more nostalgic, while 10’s kids will no longer have the right to preach about patriarchal gender roles. They still will though.

ONTARIO, CA – Nintendo’s special edition of their popular “Nintendo Direct” series of online presentations, devoted entirely to the new Super Smash Bros. game for Wii U and Nintendo 3DS, featured series creator and director Masahiro Sakurai excitedly announcing both games’ new additions and a handful of new playable characters. Gamers everywhere were ecstatic to again play as Shiek, the sneaky ninja form of Princess Zelda, series veteran/lovable dinosaur Yoshi, and popular Pokemon Charizard and Greninja. The spry armor-less variant of intergalactic bounty hunter Samus was also announced to make a return from the previous game, so you can pause and zoom the camera in on her skin-tight behind in glorious 1080p. Fans were thrilled to once again take control of the sexy female brawler… but there is never a rose without its thorns.

In 2008’s Super Smash Bros. Brawl, Zero Suit Samus was very agile but lacked in physical prowess and suffered from sub-par recovery. For this new title, Sakurai decided to outfit the jumpsuit jetsetter with a pair of effeminate rocket-powered high heels for enhanced mobility and deadly jet jabs. This fashion accessory didn’t sit too well with radical feminists on the internet who saw this addition as nothing but “oppressive cishet vanity kill all men.” Apparently, the hi-tech stilettos taint Samus’ “kick-ass woman who can make her own choices,” archetype she is best known for, even though by that logic it was clearly her choice to wear the heels.

“OKAY BUT IT’S BAD ENOUGH THAT YOU GIVE ZSS LARGE BREASTS AND AN HOURGLASS FIGURE MEANT SPECIFICALLY TO FAT SHAME BUT THEN YOU GIVE HER HEELS AND PASS IT OFF AS A FEATURE? OF THE GAME??? WHEN SHE JUMPED ON SCREEN WITH THOSE HORRIBLE, FILTHY MAN-IMPOSED HIGH HEELS I HAD AN ANXIETY ATTACK. FUCK OFF NINTENDO, YOU SLIMY FUCKING PATRIARCHICAL HUMAN TRASH COMPANY FUCK. DO NOT PLAY THIS GAME. SIGNAL FUCKING BOOST.

-Heated feminist excerpt from Tumblr user, anitaworshipper.

Tirades of a similar tone soon began to flood Sakurai’s inbox after Nintendo of Japan’s website was hacked by radfems and his personal e-mail address leaked. Mistaking these empty complaints as genuine fan feedback, Sakurai decided to make a special announcement on Nintendo’s social network Miiverse regarding the design choice.

“In response to this sudden surge of feedback over Zero Suit Samus, I instead plan to outfit the character with Moon Shoes as opposed to jet boots. They were popular children’s toys many years ago in the United States. Samus identifies with a large chunk of the crowd of Nintendo gamers who were children of the 1990’s, so what better way to give her leverage in the retro-cool age of 2014 than with footwear that evokes nostalgic feeling?”

-Masahiro Sakurai

Zero Suit Samus also has an alternate costume in which she sports baggy clothes and a shaved head. Feminists remain upset anyway.

    • Ahaha that’s why there weren’t any pictures redoing the character in the heels or any post about how they look impractical and stupid by known feminist figures right?

    • While there was a bit of an outcry from the Smash Brothers fanbase, it was nowhere near the degree of spite we saw from the online feminist community. Thank you for your feedback.

  1. you clearly have no understanding of feminism or the history of sexism in gaming. i’m a 1980s fan, a man, and not radical except in the ninja turtle sense of the word. samus is the best all time female lead character imo and not because of her feminine figure; because she was a kickass space bounty hunter with a badass suit and an armgun. putting her in high heels (a functionless shoe that she would never fight in) was obviously a mistake. there’s a rational discussion that could be had on that point; but instead of that, you positioned yourself opposite the “radical feminists,” and basically cast yourself as the “radical anti-feminist.” you write like an uneducated neckbeard, i found your website by accident, and i hope no one else has the displeasure of reading this tripe. you should consider getting an education and a real job if this is the best writing you can submit to your site admin.

    • “you clearly have no understanding of feminism”

      Apparently, neither do you. You are basically the tumblr version of a Radical Feminist, since you have shown signs of A. Butthurt to a very, very unimportant article that may be entirely satire and B. usage of the sexist “neckbeard” and then proceed to flame the article writer for no reason at all. Either you can try to be rational about this or learn to take this probably-joke.

    • We here at VEAG pride ourselves in being not only an equal opportunity site but also an open-minded and progressive community. If this article makes any sort of intolerant implications, then it is only because we are reporting the news directly. The truth hurts sometimes, James, we would know. I’m sorry that you had such a negative reaction to this, and we hope that you’ll give us a second chance in the future. For the record, though, Kevin Paschal is a great writer and a close friend of ours; we would never employ anyone who does not meet our standards of professionalism.

    • It’s not functionless, did you even watch the direct? They are rocket powered, giving her the ability to do a higher(and faster) jump.

    • Samus is a beautiful, yet powerful, strong woman. The fact that shen is also pretty doesn’t have anything to do with her talent. Isn’t this exactly what they
      want? I mean, Samus doesn’t take crap from no one; how is she even
      remotely a symbol of females being oppressed?

      The heels were not to walk or run in. They were supposed to be rocket-powered moon boots used for recovering from being knocked off a ledge.

      The greatest irony, though, is that you are denying Samus’ right to wear heels just because she’s good looking. What if Samus wants to wear high heels? Will you allow her to, or is radical feminism only about women doing exactly what their liberal masters tell them to do?

      • ” Samus doesn’t take crap from no one; how is she even remotely a symbol of females being oppressed?”

        The fact that Nintendo has consistently subverted and ignored that portrayal of her. She’s gotten shorter and shorter over the years, her boots turned into heels, and she’s mostly shown in her Zero Suit, a skintight jumpsuit with ridiculous flowery pink accents on it. She used to be an icon of a rarity in gaming, where her gender was not important to her portrayal as a no-nonsense bounty hunter.

          • There’s a difference between a screenshot at the end of an old game and how Samus gets portrayed in modern games.

          • a screen shot? hahahahahahahahahaha!!!!!!!! no. Zero Suite Samus was playable if you beat the game under a certain time.

          • Have you actually gone back and looked at the Zero Suit in that game? It’s completely different from the current version. It wasn’t skintight to the point of impossibility… and of course, it had BOOTS not high heels. Unfortunately every subsequent version of the suit was tighter and tighter, to the point that she’s basically nude, and the boots became larger and more ridiculous heels in every game.

          • believe it or not but her suite being so tight has a basis in reality. her zero suite is designed to keep her blood flowing in high G situations by compressing her. when it comes to high heels vs boots, i really don’t care.

          • What does that have to do with the point I was making? Whatever basis Nintendo had in creating the suit originally, has long since been thrown to the wayside. It’s become a flagrant excuse.

          • my point is that the newer suit actually serves Samus an actual medical purpose. rather than the bikini that she wore in the fist few games.

        • And yet Samus is still listed as being Officially 6ft even..she used to be listed as 5’8″..so she actually grew.
          Don’t base everything on Other M..that was ALL Team Ninja, which is where her boots were made into Heels.
          Here they made them into Functional Rocket Boots with the ‘container’ for the Rocket being in the form of a heel.

          Additionally, she’s not shown ‘mostly’ in her Zero Suit, she still spends most of her time in the Power Armor, be it the Varia Suit, Gravity Suit, or a new suit, and is only seen in the Zero Suit on rare occasions, mostly endings.

          Also, from Metroid, the suit was pink legless jumpsuit, then Super Metroid, it was black and a thong/sports bra thing, now its a blue full body suit with pink highlights.

          You can complain about the Pink, but the rest is still Blue.
          Additionally, maybe Samus happens to like Pink. A woman can be strong and still like the colour pink.
          Being a Strong Woman doesn’t mean discarding anything feminine..it means not being Weak.

          You want to know what a Weak Woman is, one who does as she is told to do, what to say, how to act, and what to wear by ANYONE, male or female.
          A woman telling another woman not to wear Heels or Pink is just as bad.
          Let people decide for themselves what to wear.

          To illustrate what I mean, here is a small comic made by a true feminist.
          http://sunflower22a.files.wordpress.com/2014/03/tumblr_n1pxykdw9l1qbtxv8o2_1280.jpg

          • Other M wasn’t all Team Ninja. They worked on developing the gameplay. Yoshio Sakamoto created the story.

            “A woman telling another woman not to wear Heels or Pink is just as bad.”

            You’re talking about Samus as if she’s a real woman. I’m talking about her as a character created and portrayed by a game company. There are some distinct differences there.

          • So he’s creepy, I agree. Seriously ever since Yoshio Sakamoto got control of Metroid the series hasn’t been the same.

          • uhhhhh, no. Gumpei Yokoi created Metroid.

            I don’t know why you think I hate sexuality itself. That’s not what I’m arguing at all. The problem is that so many women in gaming are portrayed that exact same way. That’s why people are upset about Samus, because she’s become more and more objectified over the years since Sakamoto became the defacto lead producer.

          • You found one woman enamored with stereotypical beauty. News at 11. Reducing “the feminist movement” down to “whether or not video game characters should have cartoonish bodies” is ridiculous.

            Teenage girls are getting cosmetic surgery so they can look more like that impossible ideal. Younger girls exclaim ridiculous shit like “she’s so pretty” as if it’s a virtue to be conventionally attractive. Nearly every blonde woman you meet dyes her hair every few weeks. Women are brought up to mate with men. What kind of life is that?

            I just find it alarming that the person who’s easily the most powerful female character portrayed in the game has to elicit comments like “she’s hot” have implants and wear a skintight jumpsuit. Especially at Nintendo where these kinds of physiques aren’t normal.

            http://x1.fjcdn.com/comments/4653113+_99f67749dd1a4878558e9e96b090b414.jpg

          • She doesnt have implants. If you think she has implants that tell me YOU have a problem. Motherfuckers cant stop projecting their own shit onto everything. Deal with your own baggage and leave poor samus out of it!

            Look at her brawl model and then look at her HD model. They’re the exact same size. In this game she’s taller too lol.

          • It doesn’t matter. If real women can have preferences and likes/dislikes, then a fictional woman should as well. For all we know, Samus could like pink and heels.
            And if she did, it wouldn’t be sexist. She’s still a strong woman.

            Also, why is it that something being ‘feminine’ like pink and heels is seen as negative while implying that female characters have to look, be, or act masculine to be ‘strong’?

            We need to stop shaming the feminine as ‘bad’.
            Hell, I’m feminine..I’m a flippin’ transexual lesbian..yet I’m still strong without having to be masculine.

          • But that’s not a decision being made by a woman wearing the outfit. It’s being made by a group of men at Nintendo. THAT is the important difference you’re ignoring.

          • Strawman comic strip about women’s choice in clothing doesn’t apply when a bunch of dudes are dressing a fictional character and adding breast implants.

        • Are you telling me that you are in the right to tell Samus that she isn’t allowed to wear feminine attire or traditional aspects of a woman’s beauty?

          What is Samus wants to dress like that? Does that change that she is a no-nonsense bounty hunter? Is Samus still Samus in heels? YES!

          How can you be so superificial as to say “Oh, well Samus dresses to look feminine and attractive, so she’s clearly no longer a master fighter and a powerful person!”? YOU are the problem, not the people that think she looks good in this outfit.

          You are equating traditional feminine beauty with weakness, and in doing so, YOU are the one eroding women,

          • ….SHE’S NOT REAL. I’m not addressing her, because that is impossible. I’m talking about the people who CREATE her. The people who market her. The people who decide how she is portayed and advertised to people.

            There is a HUUUUUGE difference between a real woman making her own choices, and a group of men deciding how a female character should be presented.

    • so it’s ok for South Park and Family Guy to poke fun at feminist’s, but when a gaming site pokes a little fun of how people are reacting to her shoes, all of a sudden it isn’t ok.

    • You’re a shame and a disgrace to all feminists everywhere fighting real problems and real issues.

      You should sacrifice yourself to Jesus so he can send you to where you belong.

      In Gog.

  2. Yeah “Progressive” and “open minded”, those terms are practically poisoned when it comes to sociology and ESPECIALLY to gender stuff. They practically mean “leaned towards women” by now. And this is something absolutely ridiculous, as soon as feminists scream “sexism” for any trivial thing, developers run for cover and cave in..

      • How the hell do people not get this? Gender coding things like this is shitty. You don’t have to care about other people you know, you could just tell people up front that you are an asshole, lots of people don’t care if people are assholes. But if you do care then you care when they are hurt.

        Heels on Samus won’t hurt all women, but it will hurt some. It hurts me and I am not a woman. Samus is supposed to be a strong woman, which I might add can include weakness and uncertainty. I can accept a skin tight suit and a fit body on her, she is a fucking space warrior, some fat guy was not going to be in that armor. I can not accept her putting on space heels over her suit that is designed to go in her actual exo suit. Want an exo-jump? GET IN YOUR EXO SUIT.

        It’s not the worst thing ever but it’s very inclusion speaks to the fucking problem dude, some asshat was like, woman = shoes and nobody said “oh hey asshat, maybe thing it through practically, and don’t just woman her up because shes a woman and you are a lazy ass”. Why not make the suit just propell her with glowy vents, it didn’t have to be heels.

        And come on, thats sexist. If you had the biggest black male breakout character, he could eat fried chicken and you could point out that like tons of black people eat chicken and that since chicken is so beloved your video game character could eat that in his lunch cut scene. That would be racist, no matter how the situation unfolded, just like this is sexist, one way or another.

        • So you’re saying strong women can’t wear high heels? That’s more sexist than putting high heels on a female character…… I take that back, it’s being a stereotype, which is bad too.

        • Gender-coding, yes, because genders fucking exist. The existence and persistence of gender stereotypes isn’t sexism or patriarchy, it’s biological dimorphism and acceptance of reality; emphasizing the strengths of both genders as the strengths occur.

          What would be sexist: Samus, as a female character, has terrible aim, and is less likely to sweetspot attacks than any other character.
          What isn’t sexist: Samus, as a female character, wears feminine attire.
          What isn’t sexist: Samus, as a female character, tends to have less knockback in her physical attacks.

          • I think the thing that makes it sting is how Samus is getting less and less portrayed as a woman that didn’t wear stereotypically “feminine attire.” Now she’s just consistently portrayed as yet another girl in a skintight jumpsuit with pink accents and high heels.

          • If you played through the first Metroid, you’d realize that Samus wore a fucking bikini under her suit. If anything, her sex appeal has went down over the years. These people are only complaining because they just want attention.

          • Her sex appeal went DOWN?? How on earth do you think that? You barely ever see her in anything but the Zero suit anymore, an impossibly-skintight outfit. Then they added heels years ago, and inflated her breasts to the point that they’re double what they used to be. There’s a difference between a single shot at the end of the game, and completely changing the iconography of a character.

          • Barely see her in anything but her Zero Suit? Are you for real? In the Metroid series, she’s only been playable in her Zerosuit in Metroid: Zero Mission, she still spends the rest of the games in her Power Suit, with her being out of the armor almost exclusive for the game’s best ending.

            Also, Samus will have always been drawn sexually because she is a female character..Rule 34 is real and there will typically be more sexual or pornographic artwork drawn of a female character then not, all Zerosuit did was increase awareness of Samus’ gender..that’s it. I didn’t see all that much art of Samus at all prior to Brawl to begin with.

          • There’s a vast difference between Rule 34 and the company that sells her product. The idea that “well, Rule 34 exists, so who cares how she’s portrayed by Nintendo?” is insanity.

          • Oh, if that’s what you mean, then you’re still very wrong, there is a lot more artwork and renders of Samus in her Varia Suit then in her Zero Suit.
            Just have a look at all of the official artwork and renders made by Nintendo as shown here..there are more of them of her in her Varia Suit then her Zero Suit in the games in which it appears, namely Metroid: Zero Mission, Metroid Other M, and the Metroid Prime series. The only games not to have more images of her in the Varia Suit are Super Smash Bros. Brawl and Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS and Wii U, in which case they are even since its only the Official Renders and Alternate Colours of the Official Render, giving them Even Representation.

            As such, please do your research from this point on.

          • Don’t feminists supprot women doing what they want to do? If Samus wants to wear skintight clothes and heels, shouldn’t be allowed to, ESPECIALLY since she sends the message that you can be feminine AND a good fighter?

            This is a positive message, not a negative one. A woman can be beautiful AND can hold her own against a man.

          • Samus isn’t a real woman, so your point doesn’t make much sense at all. The idea that having a woman “hold her own against a man” is the message they’re trying to get across is hilariously reaching. If that were true, then Zack Snyder must be a radical feminist because of Sucker Punch.

          • They haven’t changed what defines her. Samus is a woman icon in games because she is both beautiful and an excellent fighter. Are you telling me that women either have to be beautiful and weak or ugly and hardcore fighters?

            Don’t feminists supprot women doing what they want to do? If Samus wants to wear skintight clothes and heels, shouldn’t be allowed to, ESPECIALLY since she sends the message that you can be feminine AND a good fighter?

            This is a positive message, not a negative one. A woman can be beautiful AND can hold her own.

          • “Samus is a woman icon in games because she is both beautiful and an excellent fighter.”

            THAT’S what you think defines her? Jesus christ.

            The problem here isn’t that she’s beautiful or ugly. The problem is that what was once a no-frills bounty hunter is now being portrayed in an increasingly sexualized and objectifying outfit. Seriously, go compare older versions of the Zero Suit to the new one. The original portrayal in the GBA Metroid is fucking tame as hell compared to the current version.

          • Actually..she’s got LESS stereotypically ‘feminine attire’ now..her old out of power armor suits included these gems.

            http://cdn.wikimg.net/metroidwiki/images/0/0d/Samus_zm_Artwork_3.png

            Her Zerosuit now isn’t actually all that different from the one in Brawl and is actually less sexist then the one in Other M, which this one is based mostly on, since the Rocket Boots cover her wedge heels from that costume.

            Just saying though, know your history before saying she’s wearing something ‘more feminine’ then before..

          • Alright, then replace where I said “feminine” with sexist. I wouldn’t say any of those outfits she wore were sexist, but the fact that those were mostly just at the end of the game, while the Zero Suit seems to have become her default portrayal is the problem I have with it.

          • You’re kidding right? The Legless Suit, Tank Top & Panties, Thong & Sports Bra, and halter top & hot pants looks are less sexist then the full body Zerosuit?

            And as I just shown you with this Gallery: http://www.metroidwiki.org/wiki/Gallery:Samus_Aran
            The Zero Suit is FAR from her default portrayal in the games in which it appears, with the Varia Suit having more Images and being Playable a heck of a lot more then the Zero Suit with exception to the Super Smash Bros. games, where they are equal.

          • Go back and read my post. I said it’s because of the way she was portrayed back then compared to how she is portrayed now. We seem to be arguing two completely different points here. You’re trying to argue about the clothes themselves, while I’m arguing about the people who put her in those clothes.

          • I see absolutely no difference then. Samus was still portrayed the same as she’s ever been. The only difference in her portrayal was in Other M where her personality was based on older Manga portrayals.
            Samus herself hasn’t really changed at all.
            The only other difference I can see is that she’s shown slightly more out of her suit then in previous games, though that only occured in Zero Mission, when she didn’t have access to her suit, and Other M (I didn’t really look too into that game), and Smash Bros. has her out of her Power Suit so that Metroid can have an additional character, since almost all those who would fit are either too similar or far too large.
            In regards to the ‘people’ portraying her, unless you actually know them, you can’t say as to their reasonings for this or that and I have seen no difference in her portrayals in recent years compared to past years

          • Clevername, she’s “just another woman” that can kick your butt and fight like any man. Is it wrong for a woman to look beautiful and still fight like any man?

          • Fashion doesn’t pop out of thin air. Women weren’t coming out of the womb wearing dresses and heels. Hell, even back before the 1940’s clothing for babies was completely different from what it currently is.

            http://www.smithsonianmag.com/arts-culture/when-did-girls-start-wearing-pink-1370097/?no-ist

            The issue isn’t that she’s feminine, it’s that the persona they give her has become more and more stereotypical. She’s almost just another cookie cutter video game female character. She used to be more unique.

          • Aggressively missing the issue. Yes gender exists, however this is a female character that is already obviously a female character getting lady pumps for no friggin reason. It’s added gender coding that doesn’t have any place. As Nintendo showed with the whole no gay marriage in Tomadachi life screw-up: THEY DON’T GET PEOPLE.

            Girls are girls and girls like shoes so girls need shoes because she’s a girl. Yes gender still exists here.

            I agree with your other is/isn’t sexist remarks. So is it cool to give her a mini skirt and a hello kitty backpack? Maybe a stripper pole weapon she can swing on when she isn’t attacking? These are all real things that real women own and support so they aren’t bad after all.

            I suppose we will have to use CONTEXT to see if something is being sexist or exploitative. And in the context of a suit designed to interface with another suit, high heels are silly. If they gave her the portal lady’s leg things that allow her to absorb impact then HEY, you found away around it.

        • They’re not heels, they’re boots. Wedge boots.
          Take a look how they function in the game.

          Sakurai puts an insane amount of detail and meticulous care into how these games are designed, from their animations to its balance

    • I kept wondering this:
      Isn’t a beautiful, yet powerful, strong woman exactly what they
      want? I mean, Samus doesn’t take crap from no one; how is she even
      remotely a symbol of females being oppressed?

      • That version of Samus has been long gone. That’s the problem, that this image of a strong woman has been eroded over the past decade.

        • Again, are you for real?
          Samus didn’t change, they aren’t going to suddenly make her like her Other M self (which was really more the localized version of Other M..the Japanese version was less ‘whiny’)

          Additionally, a ‘Strong Woman’ is one who will wear what she likes because she likes it, regardless of what ANYONE, male or female, has to say about it.

          People need to stop focusing on what someone’s wearing and start focusing on what their personality is, what they do, and how they carry themselves.
          Samus still carries herself strongly, sexy body, tight suit (which it HAS to be to fit under her power armor, I’d expect that from a male as well), and “high heel” rocket boots not mattering at all.

          • “Additionally, a ‘Strong Woman’ is one who will wear what she likes because she likes it, regardless of what ANYONE, male or female, has to say about it.”

            In real life, yes. Samus isn’t real. Shocking, I know. Samus wears what she wears based on how Nintendo wants to portray her.

            PS, there’s a different between a tight jumpsuit and a suit with boobsocks.

          • I think the difference is where you are looking, maybe if you weren’t staring so hard it wouldn’t be a problem. She isn’t real but within her own story there’s nothing that degrades her for how she dresses.

          • Your priorities are massively distorted.

            That’s fucked up man. Fix your through process.

            Stop whatever dope trip you’ve been harping on lately.

        • If that’s been removed, why is she still a good fighter? Why can she fight men twice her size and when? Does looking beautiful somehow make her week?

          How can you be so superificial as to say “Oh, well Samus dresses to look feminine and attractive, so she’s clearly no longer a master fighter and a powerful person!”? YOU are the problem, not the people that think she looks good in this outfit.

          You are equating traditional feminine beauty with weakness, and in doing so, YOU are the one eroding women,

          • I’m going to keep drilling this in your head: Samus isn’t a real woman. She’s a character created by men at Nintendo. My point has nothing to do with what you’re arguing here.

  3. Article definitely gave me a good laugh, glad to see I’m not the only one who finds these feminist to be getting ridiculous. I personally really liked the design changes and I look forward to the new move set!

  4. Discovered this site after this article was linked on Reddit… spent the evening reading each article and laughing my ass off. Well done!

  5. Stupid butt hurt liberals. Don’t they have anything else to do besides whine?

    I mean, isn’t a beautiful, yet powerful, strong woman exactly what they want? I mean, Samus doesn’t take crap from no one; how is she even remotely a symbol of females being oppressed?

  6. Feminists should die, it’s just a video game. This cool design is now changed cause of some stupid babies. -_-‘
