    To celebrate his addition to smash I’m making this thread to test Ridley’s limits

    Yep, he's attacked Samus while she's in her gunship before.

    Omega Ridley had Phazon abilities/attacks and some kind of strong regen and similarly Neo Ridley has some X powers, but the base versions mostly just have flight and firepower.

    I find it funny how Ridley’s final smash in SSBU is launching his opponent onto the gunship and blowing it up in space :lmao

    Our Metroid stuff is way behind so here's VSbattles to get an idea.


    Ridley wouldn't have access to everything there but he gets Phazon emission and Hyper Mode. Phazon can fuck things up on all sorts of levels including the soul, mind, life force, technology and biology. Hyper Mode further increases his ability emit Phazon as an attack and buffs hime all around as a sort of overdrive mode. If he's got a Phazon source in that mode he can further regen too.

    Why does ridley get scaled to planet level again? Samus planet level feat as far as I remember occurred in Metroid prime 2 after she acquired the light suit but ridley wasn't in that game at all and I believe it was the only time she had that suit.

    Metroid Prime was a threat to the entirety of the Chozo homeworld, Dark Samus/Aurora controlled all of Phaaze, Pieces of Ridley have survived planets exploding, the metroid manga says Samus’ ice beam can freeze the core of a star, etc

    Also Neo Ridley is fought right before the SA-X in fusion and gave Samus some trouble. SA-X is Samus at her strongest

    I've seen a lot of discussion of Ridley's stats but no discussion of the strongest character he can defeat.

    I'm fine with composite, or whatever. Or you could discuss how far each individual version of Ridley would go. I just want the thread topic to be addressed rather than this thread only end up having discussion about stats.

    Because Samus is planet level all the way up to Fusion. And Ridley has been in games past the Prime series' timeline.

    Don't forget that SA-X per the beginning of Fusion is perhaps the most potent foe she's ever faced due to its nature as being Samus at full power

    Which further serves to suggest herself per Fusion is Samus at her strongest

    the screen cap of that you provided of the quote at any rate

    She was de-powered when the SA-X was empowered to be fair. It also predates some craziness like Prime 2 and 3.

    I'm not saying that it wasn't a huge threat, though.

    Not getting into exotic stuff. It's just her regular self at her strongest is how I take it. Shouldn't EoG Fusion Samus be stronger than Super Metroid?

    SA-X was just post Other-M Samus who's post Super Metroid, who's well post 2 and long past Prime's Trilogy

    Samus was depowered, but her end of game self is peer and beyond SA-X

    It predating Prime 2 and 3 bares no relevance given Fusion occurs long after in the timeline

    I don't think you actually know how accolades work

    Accolades don't make up for entirely lost parts of powersets. She's lost access to her PED suit completely.

    She's the strongest she's been, sure. But her powerset has lost some components that stand out more than pure DC.

    Sure, so what?

    We're discussing why raw power contextualized from Prime carries over later into the series for comparison to Ridley, the hax elements of her power set are extraneous to discussion

    It's a generalized statement, not one that particularly has to do with this thread. Around here things carry over from past threads so it's not pointless to make note of it here. Ridley also has access to Phazon for instance in one iteration.

    Has plenty as Samus per the end of Super Metroid/Other-M would apparently qualify as arguably her at her most powerful in order for SA-X to be considered her "most potent foe" (which was contextualized as being due to possessing the full power of Samus post Super/Other-M)

    But let's oversell the phlebotinum of Prime long after its role in the plot has ended

    Sure, so what?
