Samus Aran has 2 suits: the Zero Suit and the Power Suit. The Power Suit gives Samus the necessities of space, like breathing tubes, jet-pack, and most of all, an Arm Cannon. Samus' Power Suit consists of goldish colouring and red colouring, with boots, helmet, and full body armor. The Power Suit has been with Samus since the very first game in the Metroid Series. However, many more variations of this suit have been around, but all have to do with the Power Suit. The Varia Suit for example, gave Samus superhuman powers. The Gravity Suit is another, which allows her to withstand various gravity levels. There have been many more suits, however, but the Power Suit has been around since the beginning.
In Metroid, the Power Suit appeared for the first time. In the game, in had Orange and Red colouring. This was the suit you began with, but you were able to collect extras later on in the game.
 Metroid II: Return of Samus
In Metroid II: Return of Samus, you couldn't really tell that it was the Power Suit due to the lack of colour cababilites on the GameBoy. However, it was indeed the Power Suit and offered the same things as in other titles.
 Super Metroid
In Super Metroid, the Power Suit was probably most recognizable because of the outstanding graphichs at the time. Samus had the ability to get the variations of the suit in this game as well.
 Metroid Fusion
In this game, the Power Suit was infected by the X-Parasite and had it's colour chnaged due to an attempt to restore the suit to it's old form. The suit was a Blue, Yellow, and Red instead of the usual colors.
 Metroid: Zero Mission
In Metroid: Zero Mission the Power Suit looked the same as in Super Metroid, due to the graphics being the same. The suit also had variations throughout this game to obtain, as well.
 Metroid Prime
In the first third person Metroid game, Samus was sporting her original Power Suit and colours. You were also able to collect the different variations of suit in this game. However, due to the fact that this was a third person game, you didn't see Samus' and the Power Suit constantly like in all of the previous titles. Instead, you would see it in fancy cutscenes.
 Metroid Prime 2: Echoes
The Power Suit was not shown in this game, rather Samus starts the game with the Varia Suit intact, presumably from the first game in the Prime series. Though an official explanation of what happened to the Gravity Suit or Phazon Suit augmentations has never been put forward, it is most likely theses additions were damaged during the fight against Metroid Prime.
 Metroid Prime 3: Corruption
Metroid Prime 3: Corruption is the last game in the Metroid Prime Series, and is also the last third person Metroid game to date. In the game, the Power Suit was there for a little bit in the game, but eventually you got the PED Suit which changed the suit back to a Blue colour, like in Metroid Fusion.
 Metroid: Other M
This is the last Metroid game to date, and also the last appearance of the Power Suit. This time, instead of changing your whole suit to get the Varia Suit, you just activated a feature on the suit that acted as the Varia Suit instead. So, as a result, your suit didn't really change for the whole game, so you got to keep the original Power Suit.
