The Zero Suit Samus is one of the fastest fighters in the game, having only been beaten slightly by Captain Falcon in terms of speed. Not only can her movement speed boast speed, but her injury window is relatively short, which makes hitting her very hard. The fact that she is hard to beat allows the player to risk her by bringing her closer to an opponent to hit off a few good combos.
