FOR THOSE WHO HAVEN'T PLAYED AND BEATEN METROID: OTHER M, BE AWARE MASSIVE SPOILERS FOLLOW!
Madeline Bergman, another favorite of mine from Other M. I know the game slams symbolism and such over your head (especially the maternal theme), but I liked the relationship Madeline had with Melissa. The fact Madeline would treat MB like a daughter and try to accomodate her and make her feel more human... It was sweet, and yet their story ended so tragically. The way she faced MB - putting herself in danger to try and reason with MB against Samus' advice - was a strong scene. The way Madeline broke down just... yeah, that really got to me.
Since Madeline was very close with MB/Melissa, and seeing as how the hairpin she gave MB is not around post credits, I'd like to think that Madeline took MB's crushed hairpin with her after MB's death. You can barely see it, but Madeline is mourning MB while holding onto the crushed hairpin in this chibi.And Dark Samus will be the next chibi I do.
