Samus Aran: Mystic Knight by CoronaDiTempesta Samus Aran: Mystic Knight by CoronaDiTempesta
Her biological parents slayed by a dragon raiders, Samus Aran was adopted by a long-forgotten race of ancient bird-men, who raised her and taught her their ancient fighting techniques and magics.  Samus's genes were spliced by the bird men, giving her enhances strength, agility, and speed; even when she has heavy armor equipped.  Combined with the glowing tattoos and amulets on her right arm, she can conjur various magics, such as a concussive blast, an bolt of magma, a shard of ice, and an electric phantom.  She can also harden the magic into a sword.  
As a seasoned bounty hunter and adventurer, she also is equipped with various gadgets to aid her journeys. These include: a grenade launcher,  holy bombs, a stun knife, and a magic chain that extends to her will.

Artist Comments:
THIS PROJECT IS TO BE REDACTED AND IMPROVED. I HAVE LEARNED A LOT MORE AFTER CONTINUOUS WORK ON OTEHR PROJECTS, AND I HOPE TO REVISIT THIS WITH EVEN GREATER ASPIRATIONS. PLEASE STAY TUNED.

This is Samus Aran as she would appear in an RPG/medeival-fantasy setting, with specific influences coming from Fire Emblem and Final Fantasy.
The 
project that I started 4 months ago is finally done! (although I did abandon it for like 3 of those months though...)
Metroid Prime is probably one of my favorite games of all time, and Samus is one of my favorite characters. As such, I made sure to give her the most intricate details that I possibly could.  I plan on expounding the following:
Plasma Beam = Concussive Blast,  Plasma Beam = Magma Bolt, Ice Beam = Frost Shard, and Wave Beam = Phantom Shock.
The Grenade Launcher is also meant to reference her Missile Launcher.
I also plan on adding swords and her various visors. 
In comparison to other 'medieval Samus' works, they always seem to give her a bow or crossbow, but I feel like her ranged attacks fit more as magic. I also referenced the Chozo with her helmet, which is shaped like a bird.
This is probably my most detailed piece so far and I'm pretty proud of how far I managed to take it. (Hell, I'm surprised I finished)

This is part 1 of my RPG Smash Bros project

Never thought, that Samus would look so good in a medieval-style. You have made good work with that.

because when I first drew this concept (2 years ago) coronaditempesta.deviantart.co…

I drew inspiration from Faris from Final Fantasy img1.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20… img1.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20…

It just carried over when I was redesigning it (it also fits with the fire emblem universe too)

lol it's ironic cause I'm actually a bit put off by ZSSamus's heels in SSB4 too.
I guess I only put them on her here was cause they gave a more "medieval lady" look.
Heels look weird futuristic.

I really like the way you interpreted the plasma cannon into this setting. And is that a shotgun strapped to her waist?

Right on, dude.

Thanks you! Many representations though show a steampunk cannon attachment, though I always I thought that the Plasma Beam, Ice Beam, etc. was more reminiscent to magic.

And it's a grenade launcher to represent the Missiles!

Right on man! I always thought it would look awesome as a radical wrist mounted crossbow.
