By that logic Simon Belmont and his entire lineage, slayers of THE Dracula are weak simply because they can't swim, and apparently weigh 2 tons since they sink in water as if it's not even there. Game mechanics probably aren't a good way to judge how strong one character is over another... I love the Metroid series as much as I love the Rockman series. If you ask me they wouldn't even fight in the first place. They'd have absolutely no reason to. I'd rather see Megaman and Samus running side by side blasting aliens and robots.
I'm assuming you meant you got 'lucky' by throwing baseless remarks on his anniversary. Regardless, I think we should realize that they have a lot more in common. For example, both of their parent companies did jack shit for their latest anniversaries.
