Game: Metroid
Year: 1986-present

While n00bs might not even know Samus is female since she was covered up throughout the whole series, the fact remains that she is, and she's spectacular enough to inspire women the world over to dress up like her. The demureness of space hardwear aside, things got really real when Zero-Suit Samus made her Super Smash Bros. Brawl appearance in a skin-tight blue outfit and a gun-whip S&M dream weapon.
