#1: Chozo Power Suit - Metroid Series

Samus Aran's Chozo Powered Armorsuit is the classic video game advanced armor. A brief glance at the abilities of this suit reveal life support, augmented strength, personal energy shielding, damage reduction and more.

Samus' armor has too many upgrades and variants to count, including alternate suit styles such as the Varia, Light, and Dark suits. Upgrades found throughout the Metroid series drastically alter the abilities of the power armor but there are some consistent attributes:

  • Power Beam - Samus' standard, built-in launcher.
  • Oxygen Supply for outer space survival.
  • Energy Shielding
  • Damage Reduction
  • Augmented Strength
  • Life Support
  • Extreme Temperature Protection
  • Exterior Toxin and Parasite Negation
  • Rapid Movement Speed
  • Extended Jump Height

These are just the basic attributes of this super-suit. Different weapons and abilities can be equipped including one where Samus tucks into a ball and uses extreme speed to roll like Sonic the Hedgehog through her enemies. 

The opportunities of this suit are endless, and it's a video game classic; very deserving of the #1 spot.
