Ignoring logic and reason, there is a totally badass mural of Kraid in St. Petersburg on Central Avenue.
There’s a Metroid, and also Samus Aran, although she has tragically been destroyed with a window through her face.
Close up of the Metroid.
I am so blown away by the coolness of this. I will have to return and get some non-terrible non-cellphone camera pics, and possibly see what awesome person took the time to put this together.
