5. Samus Aran (Metroid series) – The moment Samus was revealed to be a woman is still one of the most awesome moments in gaming history. The Metroid series is a pioneer in establishing a strong female protagonist in video games. Just look how cool this cosplay is!
6. Katana (Mortal Kombat X) – Katana has always been one of the coolest fighters to choose in previous Mortal Kombat titles, but the latest games in the series added a whole new look to the deadly princess. This cosplayer even has those deadly knife-fan-things, whatever you call them.
