Women didn't really have the role of bada** hero roles back in the day.
Also the fact Samus was referred to as a he in the manual in the first game then revealed to be a women was a surprise to most people
This sentence is false. The previous sentence is true.

Mean Pac-man in drag.

Samus is important for it was Nintendo's first FPS and starreda character who wasn't made female to capitalize on profits, but instead has her own detailed backstory.
