Okay yeah there are plenty of good cases and arguments to be made about the lack of realism in the anatomy of female characters in a good chunk of videogames but Samus is the last one you should pick to make your case, especially when you’re focusing on the one depiction in the universe where blobs eat anthro fox starship captains to gain their abilities so they can beat the living daylights out of yellow electric mice and giant sentient gloves
Nevermind her canon ability to contort into a head sized sphere I mean there’s also that
SSBB doesn’t make the least amount of sense but then put in rocket boots and suddenly it’s too much. It’s just silly. The team’s never cared about logic in the slightest and the game is better off for it.
To be honest the discussion on the heels I just didn’t really care about like it was funny to me that people consider it somehow a point of oversexualisation or something and like
It’s not as if they gave her a damn boob window christ they’re no worse than Chell’s Long Fall Boots which are also pretty much high heels and if anything Chell’s heels deserve more criticism than Samus’ because Portal is meant to have real world physics and shit
But what got me was this sudden rise at the screenshots of Samus doing badass action stuff, there’s been all this outcry that her body shouldn’t be able to move like that and?? It’s Super Smash Bros.???? How are you expecting realism in a game like tha t ??
