Jet boots

Jet Boots are a technology used by Zero Suit Samus in Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS and Wii U and Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. Like the Plasma Whip, they are an invention of the Super Smash Bros. series and have not appeared in a Metroid game.

The Boots come with matching bracelets (which are purely cosmetic), and are used in her new recovery move, Boost Kick. Masahiro Sakurai, in the April 2014 Nintendo Direct, explained that these boots were created out of a viewed necessity to "toughen her up," as Zero Suit Samus was not very powerful in Super Smash Bros. Brawl (despite being fairly highly ranked in the majority of fan tournament boards' tier lists). The Jet Boots are worn over the boots on the otherwise identical Zero Suit from Metroid: Other M, which controversially featured Samus in larger, clunky heels. The heels of the Jet Boots have similarly generated some criticism.

Zero Suit Samus wears the Jet Boots during her brief appearance in A Piercing Screech, Ridley's character trailer for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. She uses them to escape from a blaze caused by Ridley, and to lunge at him as the trailer ends.


  • Zero Suit Samus' Jet Boots and bracelets bear a similarity to Joey's rocket-propelled roller skates and Field Knuckle. They may also be a nod to the heels worn by Bayonetta.
  • The Jet Boots make a cameo appearance in New Style Boutique 2: Fashion Forward, under the name Bounty Hunter Boots. They can be unlocked as a wearable pair of shoes by using the Zero Suit Samus amiibo.
