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

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.

If Samus was owned by Capcom, for sure she would be a he, but with a sex change.
