Short(s) On Fanservice

By LUDWIG VON KOOPA - The feminist screech that never came.

It is time for another KoopaTV article on Sakurai's Pic of the Day! Take it away!
Sakurai Miiverse post of the day Zero Suit Samus shorts costume female designer
Masahiro Sakurai's post of the day, revealing Zero Suit Samus in shorts, thanks to a female designer.

Well? It's "Negative One Suit Samus"!

You're not amused. Well, I didn't come up with it. It's based off of Metroid Fusion and Metroid: Zero Mission's endings:

Blue, Fusion.
Orange, Zero Mission.
There are some valid complaints about Samus here. Like, what the hell happened to her stomach?

However, on Miiverse after the Pic of the Day was shown, there was a strong reaction of, "Here come the feminists that are going to whine." And... I've been looking around the usual social media channels, and I haven't found such whining. Completely different story than, you know, yesterday's article. Twitter seems normal. Miiverse seems normal. Nintendo's Facebook is normal. What about Tumblr, the lair of demons? I don't know how to actually look around that place, but I don't see any mass-gathering of angry people.

So what happened? Is it possible that the generic clump of people known as "feminists" don't latch onto every opportunity to wreak havoc? Are they trying to wreak havoc but they're just bad at it? Did a bunch of people quit at the whole angry feminist thing because it's a losing philosophy and a terrible life? Did the LGBT activists wage war on the feminists who believe that the cause of society's problems are perverted men, because the feminists are being heteronormativists (which according to the "enlightened" progressive crowd, is an old-fashioned idea to think that heterosexuals are normal) and ignoring the millions of perverted lesbians out there, thus causing the ranks of the feminists to be decimated? There are people who are asking when we'll see some shirtless male alternate costumes, and to that I say you already got that in the last game Sakurai made.

Pit fan service in Kid Icarus: Uprising
Pit is pretty happy about it. Unlike Samus and her grimace.

I do not have the answers to the other questions, however. What I do have is the ability to make sure you don't leave this article without some more fan-service!

Get ready... It's a girl.

It's a topless girl.

We're so getting in trouble for this. But it's... for the fans!

Rachel Jeantel's sprite sheet in Trayvon Tyson's Punch-Out!!
It's... The Rachel Jeantel sprite sheet used for Trayvon Tyson's Punch-Out!!! Much of it unused, and a lot of it further edited.

We hope you and all of your body parts survived seeing that. Get your hands out of wherever they might be, and put them on your keyboard so you can give us feedback in the comments section. And maybe even write an entry for that Giveaway Contest ending in a few days. Unless you got one of those voice-to-text things. Then do whatever you want. But I doubt those really work well.

Ludwig is of the opinion that Zero Suit Samus looks better with more clothes on anyway. That opinion extends to women in general. If you want to see more of Ludwig's opinions on women's dress, you can Follow him on Miiverse at NNID PrinceOfKoopas, where he made a post somewhat-related to the Pic of the Day today.

For more fan-service, check out KoopaTV's article on High School DxD. It's not safe for work.


  1. I am wholeheartedly in favor of balancing things with more fanservice of male characters! Like Simon Blackquill! :D

    1. You want male character fanservice?

      We'll keep that in mind for future articles.

    2. Did you like the fanservice in this article?
      Then you'll love our future plans.

    3. ...Then you should like that when I said "plans" I didn't actually mean we had any.
