Thardus by Raiden-chino Thardus by Raiden-chino
"He is Metroid. He is fighting Rockman" :B

For the boss battle contest of :iconmetroid-club:

Samus VS Thardus, a boss from the first Metroid Prime game. It was very fun to draw and should have been finished sooner, but it got delayed because of work and sickness :ohnoes:

This is one great picture. It reminds me so much of how much it....rocked....to fight a gigantic rock dude powered by Phazon. (and we shouldn't forget his theme, possibly the creepiest theme for a boss yet)

so did i
actually it was the only boss i felt bad eliminating
Thardus was only aggressive due to the pirates tormenting and experimenting on him

Well, he did try to kill Samus, so I guess it's justified. XD Nobody messes with the Samus.

Ah, this is when pet rocks get dangerous.

The only complaint with this picture I have is samus's pose. More likely that she'd be braced to move instead of off-balance like that.

This is pretty awesome. I really like the snow particles. On a side note, I think Samus's canon is on her right arm though and not her left. :)

Metroid is a floating green jellyfish thing. The protagonist you are referring to is Samus.
