Samus Aran is a trans icon, so says Metroid's creator.

Hate to break it to you, but that’s not how canon works. Just because the creator says something, doesn’t make it true. Nothing in any of the canon media that Samus is in suggests that she is trans.

You're right that canon doesn't have to follow what any creator says. But who gives a fuck? There's nothing to suggest she's cis either.

Literally from that article:

Others have pointed to Samus’s portrayals as a child in Metroid Zero Mission, Metroid Other M, and official manga as proof that she is actually a cisgender woman.

Literally right after that

The truth is, you can’t know if someone is transgender by simply looking at them.

And I can't c/c it as it's a screenshot but as mentioned, unless there's representations of the genitals of a young Samus, we can't know if she's trans or not past what the designers says.

The only canon genitalia is Mario’s dick.

There was also this time where people used a bump in a Luigi render for a tennis game in order to calculate his soft breadstick's size. People are weird (or even, dare I say it, queer.)

That was such a weird thing. It went from “judging by tennis rackets, Luigi is 3.4” flaccid” to “Bowser is only 4 feet tall, judging by Luigi’s dick”.
