Current Game: Metroid Prime 2
Well of course I like Samus' "zero suit" (I just refer to it as her flight suit though....WTF is a "zero" suit anyway???). It doesn't mean it's the only reason she's my fav. The Chozo power suit is awesome. It's got the best powerups/upgrades over any other armor/uniform.

Plus the other reason I like Samus is that it's not about sex appeal. She is one of the few positive video game role models out there for girls. I myself am not female, but I recognize there is a shortage of positive imagery for girls (at least in America that's the case). Lara Croft (while being a fine heroine) is really more about sex appeal than positive imagery. This is true about most games where a woman is the protagonist.

Samus is portrayed as a strong person with noble goals and a sense of duty. She is a bounty hunter, but unlike characters like Jango Fett, Samus will stare danger in the eye and sacrificially go toe-to-toe. That is why she's my fav.

It's called the "Zero" suit because it originated from Metroid: Zero Mission. There's no specific canonical reference as to why it's called that in-game though, but we do know now that the Zero Suit is the device that actually generates the Chozo power suit around Samus.
