^ it's from the last page of an old game manual (when Samus's gender wasn't known yet). there's the image source in another post of this batch that also parodies it

^Samus was already unmistakeably a woman in the first game so her gender was never an unknown. Just a secret

A classic. I fucking love this. The story behind the original is that her gender was kept so under wraps that the people designing promotional stuff for the game weren't even informed, and they made this (well, the original just showed her power suit), unintentionally implying that she's gay. No takesies backsies.

Interestingly enough, there was another famous case where a former developer who left the team on bad terms used a slur to insinuate that Samus was trans. So now, people are like, "what's this? You say she's a hot 6'3" trans lesbian and the greatest warrior in the galaxy? Excellent, thanks Nintendo."
