Samus Aran (Japanese: サムス・アラン Hepburn: Samusu Aran) is a fictional character and the protagonist of the Metroid science fiction action game series by Nintendo.

Introduced in the 1986 video game Metroid, Samus Aran is an ex-Galactic Federation soldier who turned into an intergalactic bounty hunter, usually fitted with a powered armor suit with weapons that include beams and missiles. Throughout the series, she executes missions given to her by the Galactic Federation while hunting the antagonistic Space Pirates and their leader, Ridley, along with the parasitic energy-draining organisms called Metroids. Samus has appeared in all Metroid video games and has also been featured in media outside of the series, including the comic book version of Captain N: The Game Master and the Super Smash Bros. series.

She is well known as one of the earliest female protagonists in video game history and remains a popular character over a quarter-century after her first appearance. Guinness World Records 2013: Gamer's Edition recognized Samus as "the first playable human female character in a mainstream videogame" and as being "enduringly" popular, noting that sales of the Metroid series has exceeded 17.44 million copies as of 22 September 2012.
