SpaceX and Tesla owner Elon Musk has revealed his favourite character from Bandai Namco's Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. Replying to a fan tweet Musk confirmed that Metroid's protagonist Samus Aran in her Zero Suit version is his main.

We all know about Elon Musk's love for video games. The Tesla and SpaceX owner often talks about them and he even puts them in Tesla cars. It also looks like Musk owns every single console available as he's played a variety of games including Nintendo's latest fighting title Super Smash Bros. Ultimate.

He also has a favourite character. When asked about his main in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate by one Twitter user, Musk simply replied that he mostly plays with Zero Suit Samus.

Unfortunately, that's everything Musk tweeted about his main. He didn't say why Metroid's protagonist is the one he loves but given that his tweet already got a lot of attention from Super Smash Bros. Ultimate fans, he'll certainly get a ton of other questions about the game. So, hopefully, we get some elaboration from Musk on why Zero Suit suits him the best.

Some fans already have pretty interesting questions about the potential Tesla port of Nintendo's game. "Can we play Smash Ultimate in Tesla?" one user wrote while others challenged Elon to Best of 5 where the prize would be a new Tesla Model 3. Yeah, we don't think that will be happening anytime soon.

One of Musk's favourite titles is Overwatch, which he called the best game of 2016. He also enjoyed The Mass Effect, Bioshock, Fallout and Civilization series along with the original Warcraft and Kerbal Space Program.

Back in August, he invited game developers to apply for a job at Tesla. The company's goal was to create "super fun games" that would integrate the centre touch system, phone and car in real life.
