A twin image of Samus, encountered near the beginning of Metroid Prime 2: Echoes. Dark Samus is identical to Samus in every way but color—she even uses similar attacks. There are many theories on the origin of Dark Samus, but none are proven. Dark Samus uses Phazon for energy and can absorb it to heal damage. Samus encounters Dark Samus a number of times.

In Super Smash Bros. Wii U/3DS
Dark Samus was confirmed as an Assist Trophy during the Super Smash Bros. Nintendo Direct. She was shown attacking with phazon based attacks which are cannon blasts, homing projectiles, and summoning tendrils around herself that damage opponents.
This terrifying creature is made of Phazon. Along with regenerative abilities, she can also brainwash her victims and clone herself. Summoned into Smash Bros., she resembles Samus Aran and mimics some of her moves, firing Arm Cannon blasts, launching homing energy blasts, or even unleashing Phazon.
- This is the first time Dark Samus has made an appearance in seven years.
- Dark Samus is also one of Samus's palette swaps.
- It is also possible to defeat Dark Samus; when she dies she will shine blue and disappear.
