The Gunship is Samus's personal spacecraft in the Metroid franchise.


Super Smash Bros. series

Super Smash Bros. Melee

In Super Smash Bros. Melee, Samus's Starship appears as a collectible trophy.

Super Smash Bros. Brawl

The Gunship has a minor role in Adventure Mode: The Subspace Emissary in Super Smash Bros. Brawl. When the Subspace Gunship destroys the Halberd, the Gunship, along with the Falcon Flyer, Hocotate Ship, an Arwing, and a Dragoon with Kirby on top escape the explosion and attack the Subspace Gunship, flying through the portal to Subspace opened to bring the Subspace Gunship through.

Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS / Wii U

In Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS and Super Smash Bros. for Wii U, the Gunship appears in Zero Suit Samus's Final Smash. When activated, Samus jumps into the Gunship and takes aim at opponents from a first-person perspective with the on-screen reticle, which can be controlled by the player. By pressing the attack button, Samus can fire up to five dual laser shots that damages and launches opponents until the Final Smash runs out.

In addition, the Gunship appears during Zero Suit Samus's stage entrance, dropping her off onto the stage.

Exclusive to Super Smash Bros. for Wii U are two trophies of the Gunship, and unlocking both involves clearing All-Star Mode as Zero Suit Samus, with one having a slightly different criteria in that Zero Suit Samus cannot recover health between rounds.

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate

In Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, Zero Suit Samus once again uses her Gunship in her Final Smash, except this time she rides on top of it while wearing her Power Suit and fires a laser similar to Samus's Zero Laser from the background.

Nintendo Land

The Gunship also appears in Nintendo Land in the event Metroid Blast. During the event, the player controls a Mii dressed as Samus, using the Gunship to shoot several mechanical enemies. In multiplayer mode, the player using the Wii U GamePad will take control of the Gunship and either attack or work alongside the other Miis walking on the ground.

This compact ship is used by Samus as her base of operations. Of course, Samus can't fly it into the catacombs of every planet she visits, so she leaves it on the surface as her sanctuary. Samus can recharge her Power Suit inside the ship, so it tends to be the only safe and secure spot on inhospitable alien terrain.

Samus has been on numerous voyages in the gunship, but after being attacked by an X parasite in Metroid Fusion, she crashes into an asteroid belt and destroys the craft. After that, the Galactic Federation provides her with a new starship.

At least they can be thankful it doesn't go on forever.
