Metroid's popularity is on the same level as F-Zero, Kirby, and Star Fox. These are all B grade tier series in the company (IMO.) Why is this guy wanted so much compared to characters from games with A grade tiers, such as Pokemon, Mario, and Zelda?

You killed your own argument with that. Metroid is very popular, though moreso in the west. Regardless, people want him because he's a major antagonist in a said popular series.

Pokemon, Mario, and Zelda already have a ton of characters. Even the "B-teir" series you listed have a bunch of characters, excluding F-Zero.

Metroid just has Samus. It's a more prolific and popular series than something like Star Fox and it only has one character (and one non-armored version of that character).

Please don't group F-Zero and Star Fox in with Kirby. The only popular game in the Star Fox franchise in the one for N64 and F-Zero hasn't had a new game in nearly a decade. And even if you do group those together and compare them to Metroid, Star Fox and Kirby each have more reps than Metroid; perhaps Metroid fans just want one more rep or something.

No, the reason why I used "IMO" is because my statement is not a fact. Saying that the series is a B tier cannot be summarized down to that.

I want Ridley and I don't even like Metroid... I just think he's really cool. Problem?

Ok, I was a little off about F-Zero. F-Zero is a C grade because they haven't had a new game in decades (I didn't realize this until just now.)

Don't remind me. Last F-Zero game was in 2004 for the GBA, and it never left Japan. Come on Nintendo, you can crank out 3 Mario Kart games in five years, but no more F-Zero after nine years?

Kirby isn't B tier.

I don't know if Metroid is equally popular as those series, but it's definitely better than them (no offense to those others).

Also since you conceded F Zero is less popular, the other two series you mentioned, Kirby and Star Fox, both have 3 characters, while Metroid only has 1.
