Solid Snake being badass during the Shadow Moses Incident as depicted by Yoji
Real Name: David
Aliases: Snake, Iroquois Pliskin, Old Snake
Height: 5'10" / 178 cm (as of 1999)
Weight: 166lbs / 75 kg (as of 1999)
Age: 37 (as of 2009)
Solid Snake is among the clones of Big Boss from the Les Enfant Terribles project;
the others being Liquid Snake, Solidus Snake, and quite possibly others as well,
though none are currently known. He was created to give Liquid Snake the dominant
genes, but Liquid was told vice versa. Snake wasn't told of the Les Enfant Terribles
project at all until 2005. At an early age, the U.S. Government trained Snake
to be a soldier. With an IQ of over 160, Snake learned to speak fluently in six
languages, skydive, scuba-dive, and all sorts of stuff people like you fucking
wish they could do.
CONFLICT WITH BIG BOSS
Dr. Pettrovich Madnar tells Snake how to destroy Metal Gear TX-55. One could
say that he is dancing in this picture.
Solid Snake joins FOX-HOUND in the early 90's and is trained there by super-asshole-but-for-a-reason
Master "Hell" Miller, eventually getting the "Snake" rank which is second best
to "Fox" in FOX-HOUND. Snake meets and befriends Gray Fox, the only member of
FOX-HOUND to ever get the Fox rank. Big Boss, commander of FOX-HOUND at the
time, considers Snake a rookie and doesn't care much for him. In 1995, Gray
Fox is sent to infiltrate and gather information in the military nation Outer
Heaven during Operation Intrude: N312. Gray Fox is captured and his last transmission
states something about a "Metal Gear," which is a walking nuclear tank. With
everyone freaking out, Big Boss orders Solid Snake to go in, find Fox and finish
his mission. Thus begins Operation Intrude N313. Snake seems suspicious of his
deployment, but he goes in anyways, defeats the mercenaries and obstacles in
his way, saves Gray Fox in addition to other hostages, and find the leader of
Outer Heaven - Big Boss! Yes, Big Boss, one of the best soldiers in the world,
commander of FOX-HOUND and the man who was giving Snake support on the transmitter,
was the leader of Outer Heaven all along! Snake thought this made sense as to
why Big Boss sent in him in despite being a rookie. Obviously, Snake was underestimated,
and is now not a rookie anymore. He destroys Metal Gear TX-55 with help from
Dr. Pettrovich and defeats Big Boss in battle. When
Big Boss is seemingly defeated, Solid Snake makes a run for it because upon
TX-55's destruction, Outer Heaven was set to self-destruct. Oddly enough, despite
being hit with numerous rockets in the face, Big Boss manages to survive and
escapes Outer Heaven, settling in the middle east.
Solid Snake fights Big Boss to death. Solid Snake demolishes Big Boss using
a lighter and a can of spray.
After the mission, Solid Snake decides to retire and live in the Canadian
mountains, but is brought back into action December 24, 1999, this time by
Colonel Roy Campbell, FOX-HOUND's new leader after the Outer Heaven crisis.
A military-country was being brought up in the middle east called Zanzibar
Land, and they just kidnapped Czech scientist Dr. Kio Marv, along with his
OILIX formula--which creates
petroleum with little effort. Snake is told to infiltrate Zanzibar Land, find
Dr. Kio Marv and recover his OILIX formula. Snake agrees and eventually learns
that Big Boss survived and is the one behind Zanzibar Land. In addition, Snake
finds out that Gray Fox, his old friend, followed his former commander and
is now the head of it's army of mercenaries. Snake also discovered that Dr.
Pettrovich, developer of Metal Gear TX-55, was "kidnapped" by the Zanzibar
Land soldiers to build a new Metal Gear, Metal Gear D. Later on, it is revealed
that Pettrovich was not kidnapped, but was hired to develop Metal Gear,
and in addition, helped kidnap Kio Marv. Pettrovich was jealous of Kio Marv
and actually kills him, which totally fucked up Snake's mission. Luckily,
the OILIX formula is hidden in a MSX cartridge, which Snake snags. Snake battles
Metal Gear D, piloted by Gray Fox, defeats it, and then battles Gray Fox in
a mine field. Snake manages to knock Fox into a mine. They have one last conversation,
and Fox dies. Snake then confronts Big Boss, who tells him a lot of things,
such as the reasoning behind a military-country and how people like Snake
were made for war. This made Snake really hate Big Boss and they had a dual,
with Snake eventually killing Big Boss with nothing but a lighter and a can
of aerosol spray. Snake escapes with Holly White, a CIA spy he met there,
with a helicopter lift. It is assumed Snake banged White later on and probably
took a shower.
RETIREMENT WITH HUSKIES
Snake leaves FOX-HOUND again, this time to a cabin in Twin Lakes, Alaska.
After the Outer Heaven and Zanzibar Land incidents, Snake suffers PTSD (Post-traumatic
Stress Disorder) which causes him to go nearly insane. To kill his time and
try not to remember his past, Snake becomes a slow-dog racer, with his own
huskies. He also drinks a lot of booze. I doubt that helped much, but
ok, that's chill.
THE SHADOW MOSES INCIDENT
Snake meets up with who he believes is DARPA Chief Donald Anderson. Snake
likes to look cinematic while speaking.
Snake lives like this until 2005 when he is pulled back in action by
Colonel Campbell... who was forced out of retirement as well. It appears
that FOX-HOUND is going against their orders and, with the cooperation of
the Genome Army, takes over Shadow Moses. After being strip searched and
injected with nanomachines, Snake learns that Campbell is forced to cooperate
as well, for his niece Meryl was sent in and was eventually captured along
with ArmsTech President Kenneth Baker and DARPA Chief Donald Anderson. FOX-HOUND's
demands are the remains of Big Boss. Snake--after coughing up a pack of
cigarettes-- sneaks into Shadow Moses, meets up with old time buddy Master
Miller via Codec, and finds out that Metal Gear REX is being housed there.
The hostages he is supposed to rescue according to the mission plan, Anderson
and Baker, dies in front of Snake from what appears to be a heart attack.
This, in reality, is FoxDie which Snake was injected with along with the
nanomachines. Snake meets Meryl and she helps Snake go to where Hal Emmerich,
the developer of Metal Gear REX, is located. He meets a Cyborg Ninja, with
whom he has a battle with. Snake eventually realizes that the Ninja is...
Gray Fox! After the battle, Fox runs to take medications which his new life
as a Cyborg Ninja requires frequently, and Snake meets Dr. Hal Emmerich,
who prefers to be called Otacon, short for Otaku Convention, because he's
Snake withstands all of his torture by Ocelot in order to keep Meryl
alive. The things men do to get laid is unbelievable.
Otacon states that he never knew Metal Gear was a nuclear device.
He cries about his families connection with nuclear weapons. Snake didn't
give a fuck for the most part, but decides to believe him. Otacon agrees
on helping Snake destroy REX and Snake meets up with Meryl to go to the
Communications Towers so they can get to where REX is kept. Meryl gets
shot by Sniper Wolf, which creates a series of events that leads to both
of them getting caught and tortured by Revolver Ocelot. Ocelot plays a
game with Snake in which he is tortured by electricity. He can stop it
anytime, but then Meryl would be killed. Snake manages to keep going through
the torture segments and escape with help from either Otacon or Gray Fox.
Rumor says Snake escaped with a bottle of
Ketchup, but psh,
c'mon now. While Ocelot keeps his word in regards to Meryl's life, Meryl
was fucked around with by Ocelot because Ocelot is just a sick old bastard
Snake and Otacon pay respect to a dying Sniper Wolf. This is one of
the numerous times Otacon gets fucked over.
Snake goes to the Communications Towers again, this time facing
Liquid Snake in his Hind D on top of the Communications Towers. Snake
manages to take down the Hind D with Liquid Snake piloting it. Liquid
crashes, there's an explosion, and all seems well. Snake takes an elevator
down so that he can finally reach the other side of the Communication
Towers. Aboard the elevator are four men in Stealth Camouflage suits.
Despite being mostly invisible, Snake kills them all and then sets off
to... get shot. This time, it was a sniper (guess who) and she totally
ruins her cover by contacting him via Codec. Snake manages to defeat
Sniper Wolf by shooting her in the lung. Snake pays his respects to
the dying Wolf, who Otacon is in love with. Otacon gives her the sniper
rifle he has always carried around and Snake shoots her so that she
does not have to suffer anymore from bleeding from her lungs. Snake
runs to the underground area where Metal Gear was kept. While on his
way, he learns that Naomi is a spy for another group and that she is
Gray Fox's adopted sister. It appears that FoxDie, a retrovirus, was
altered by her so Snake can die and she can have her revenge for Fox's
death. Snake understands Naomi's reasons but asks when he was going
to die, for he still had a job to do. Naomi couldn't answer this as
she was cut off by the Colonel who arrests her. Snake is furious at
this, as he finds out that being injected with FoxDie was already part
of the mission. Despite the fury, he continues on, and learnes how to
use the PAL Card Key to disable REX.
Liquid Snake about to shoot Solid Snake, and possibly Meryl as well,
after a car crash renders them temporarily immobile. FoxDie just
so happens to kick in at the right time, finally killing the sociopath
However he later learnes that after he used it, he actually activated
REX! 'Doh! Master Miller laughs-out-loud (also known as "LOLing")
at Snake and then reveals himself to be Liquid Snake! Liquid bitches
about apparently being the genetically weakest of the Les Enfant Terribles,
with Solid Snake being the strongest. Ironically, unknown to either
brothers, Solid Snake is actually the weakest, with Liquid Snake being
the genetically superior Snake of all the byproducts of the Les Enfant
Terribles project. Liquid pilots REX as Snake fires Stinger missiles
at REX's weakpoint. It wasn't enough and Liquid was about to use REX
to step on Snake, but Gray Fox manages to appear out of nowhere, gives
some sound advice about life to Snake, get torn apart and eventually
destroy REX's radome. Liquid crushes Fox's exoskeleton under the pressure
of Metal Gear REX's foot. This causes a lot of blood, guts and shit
to fly around. Snake gets really angry, because that totally sucks,
and starts firing missile at REX's now exposed cockpit where Snake
could see his brother piloting it. Snake manags to cause Metal Gear
to explode, and the impact causes Snake to get knocked out as Liquid
walks up to him, picks him up, and carries him to the top of the now
destroyed Metal Gear unit. Snake wakes up and finds Liquid in front
of him. Liquid reveals to Snake that Meryl is sleeping with a bomb
attached to her. Liquid activates the timer for the bomb and the two
get into a fist fight on top of REX. Snake manages to knock Liquid
off and deactivate the bomb. He awakes Meryl and they get a call from
Otacon who says he'll stay behind to unlock all the doors so they
can escape. Snake tries to convince him to save his own life, but
Otacon won't let him talk him out of this. So Snake thanks him together
with Meryl, they bone out. Liquid is still fucking alive somehow,
and as Meryl and Snake ride a jeep to escape, Liquid follows them.
They crash outside and Snake and Meryl get stuck under their jeep.
Liquid aims to shoot Snake but dies from FoxDie, magically before
he pulls the trigger. Meryl finds a bandanna for Snake which allows
him to get unlimited ammunition sometimes and Snake tells the Campbell
that the search party should look for Hal Emmerich, for he's still
at Shadow Moses. Naomi was able to talk to Snake and she tells Snake
to "live" when asked when the FoxDie virus will affect him.
In other words, she's a stupid cunt and nobody knows exactly when
Snake will die.
THE START OF PHILANTHROPY
Snake and Meryl then retire in Alaska and live with together for a
while. They somehow broke-up, or something, and Snake became alone
and a damn drunk again. Otacon manages to get a hold of him and asks
him if they can join forces to create an anti-Metal Gear group called
Snake agrees and together they destroyed the many Metal Gears that
appeared around the world due to Ocelot selling the Metal Gear REX
In 2007 things got shitty. Otacon received a message from an E.E.
(which was the initials of his long-lost step-sister) that a Marine
Corps. developed Metal Gear was being transported in a disguised Tanker.
If Philanthropy got a hold of evidence that the Marines were developing
a Metal Gear, their cause would be more recognized and not "fringe."
Philanthropy was recognized by the United Nations, but wasn't big
enough for them to give a fuck.
THE TANKER FUCK-UP
The U.S. Army Cypher takes this picture, which convinces the public
that Solid Snake is a terrorist who took down an oil tanker. Also:
Olga looks like a Q-tip.
Otacon told Snake that he got the information by hacking the
Pentagon, and on August 8, 2007, Snake jumps off a bridge... onto
a Tanker, damaging only his stealth camouflage which he didn't plan
on using anyways. However, a group of armed soldiers with Russian
equipment jumps onto the Tanker around the same time via helicopters.
They kill the crew and hijack the tanker. Snake takes a picture
of the commander of the group, who Otacon identifies as Sergei Gurlukovich,
leader of a private army and good friends with Revolver Ocelot.
Snake continues his mission onboard the Tanker and then battles
Sergei's daughter, Olga, whom he at first mistakes for Meryl. Equipped
with only an M9 modified to fire tranquilizer darts, Snake knocks
out Olga. As he looks down at her sleeping body, a Cypher nearby
takes a picture and disappears. This picture is used to convince
the public that Snake is a terrorist who sinks an oil-tanker. The
picture shows a woman lying on the floor, with Solid Snake having
his gun out, looking as if he killed her.
Liquid Snake STILL lives, as his arm takes control of Ocelot's
body whenever Solid Snake makes a peep. No, I don't know how
Snake doesn't know about this set-up and continues down to
the Tanker holds where Metal Gear is held. The Marines are there
to listen to a speech by Commandant Scott Dolph about the new
Metal Gear, Metal Gear RAY. RAY ironically is supposed to stop
the Metal Gear threat that's risen due to Ocelot's misdoing. Snake
manages to sneak around the holds, take pictures of RAY and send
them to Otacon on a near-by computer. Snake was about to escape
the Tanker, but the speech was over, so he hides. He waits for
everyone to leave but it appears no one was destined to, for a
small applause is heard by all and Ocelot walks towards Dolph,
telling him how his gift of the silver tongue proves him to be
a liar. Sergei then manages to take Dolph hostage and his soldiers
take control over the holds and get RAY ready to depart. They
all talk loudly and Ocelot reveales the truth to Sergei: he couldn't
care less if Russia "rotted." He's been working with The Patriots
all along, and is taking RAY for them. Then, with a small gunfight,
Dolph and Sergei fall dead and Ocelot gets ready to jump into
RAY. Snake jumps out and yells at Ocelot. Ocelot looks at Snake
and then his previously absent arm starts to twitch. Then Liquid
Snake talks to Snake through Ocelot's body. Snake is surprised
as would anybody else, but recognizes his brother's voice. It
appears that Liquid managed to get his arm onto Ocelot's body
(Ocelot's arm was cut off in Shadow Moses by Gray Fox). Liquid
seems proud of this, and mocks Solid Snake's body for aging too
fast. Then Snake gets hit by high-pressure water and Ocelot/Liquid
jumps into RAY. Ocelot takes control of his body again and notices
Snake, who was part of his plans. He smiles and was glad that
he will leave him to die. Ocelot escapes via RAY, which tore apart
However, Otacon manages to get a boat to Snake and saves him.
Snake gets hyperthermia and Otacon leakes the pictures of RAY
out. However, the Patriots are able to get a better story. Pictures
of Snake taken by the Cypher was shown everywhere, claiming that
Snake sunk an oil Tanker which caused the worst ecological terrorist
act of all time. They did this to not only stop Philanthropy,
but to build The Big Shell, which is disguised as a oil clean-up
INFILTRATING THE BIG SHELL
Solid Snake, in disguise as Iroquois Pliskin, meets Raiden
and checks out his ass.
Snake and Otacon manage to hide and keep low profiles until
2009 when information leaks to them about a new massive Metal
Gear being built at the Big Shell. Snake sneaks into the Big
Shell on April 29, 2009 and finds out that it has been taken
over by Dead Cell, and the same private army that took over
the Tanker two years ago. Someone else had to be their leader,
as Sergei died in 2007. It is found later that his daughter
Olga now runs it. Snake manages to then get in disguise as a
Navy SEAL. The SEALs are attacked by a "blood sucking freak"
Vamp, member of Dead Cell. Vamp, with his magic Jesus abilities,
was able to recognize Snake's scent (asking himself "Is it him?")
and was close to fucking Snake's neck up if a random blonde
in a sneaking suit didn't appear out of nowhere and shoo Vamp
away using bullets. This blonde is Raiden, a rookie who was
trained vigorously in VR, and is in FOX-HOUND... which is strange
for FOX-HOUND had been disbanded years ago. Snake doesn't trust
the rookie and identifies himself as Iroquois Pliskin. He gives
Raiden his Codec frequency and often gives him support with
information about the Big Shell, weapons, cardboard boxes, and
Later on, Snake and Raiden meet legendary bomb disposal expert
Peter Stillman. A member of Dead Cell, Fatman, planted bombs
all over the Big Shell. Stillman has Snake defuse all of the
bombs at Shell 2 while Raiden does the same in Shell 1. All
the bombs Raiden and Snake find are planted in places which
would cause minimum damage. Stillman asks Snake to look for
bombs at the bottom of the Shell while he works on a new sensor.
Sure enough, a lot of C4s were planted there, and they are not
detectable by the sensor Snake and Raiden currently had. Just
then, Raiden disposes of the last of the C4s in Shell 1 that
his sensor could detect. This causes the C4 on the bottom of
the Shells to activate. Stillman runs to the bottom of Shell
2 (revealing that his broken leg is a hoax) to examine the bombs.
Raiden manages to defuse the C4 in Shell 1. Shell 2 blows up
and Snake, being near the explosion, blacks out. When he comes
to, he receives a call from Otacon, who tells Snake that the
Big Shell itself is covering up the new Metal Gear, Arsenal
Gear. Literally. Arsenal is underneath the Big Shell.
Solid Snake and Solidus Snake meet for the first time. Snake
never gets along with his relatives, as shown later with
Snake launching a grenade at Solidus.
Otacon manages to jack a Kamov chopper, since he was sent
in with the SEALs as a technician. Snake and Otacon were going
to use it to save the hostages, but the terrorist leader who
claimed to be Solid Snake approaches Raiden while the Kamov
was on it's way over them. Snake is frustrated at this person
stealing his name and impersonating Big Boss. Solid Snake
(the real one) yells out "NO! That's NOT the real Solid
Snake!" and the terrorist leader looks at Snake and laughs.
They have a small conversation, and Snake gets pissed off
and fires at this man, who is revealed to be Solidus Snake,
the third byproduct of the Les Enfant Terribles project and
George Sears, the President of the United States during the
Shadow Moses incident. Snake launches a grenade out of his
M4 to knock Solidus off of the bridge, which would have worked
well if Vamp didn't happen to be around flying the Harrier
2. Vamp saves Solidus's fall and has Solidus sit in the cockpit.
Snake, realizing that he is in a tight situation being inside
of a Kamov chopper, he throws a Stinger Missile Launcher at
Raiden and some ammo. Raiden manages to destroy the Harrier,
but as it is about to crash into the ocean, Metal Gear RAY
arises from the water and saves Solidus and Vamp. RAY fires
some missiles and one of them manages to clipped the Kamov,
which causes Otacon to land someplace so he could repair it.
Raiden asks Snake if he really is Solid Snake, and Snake admits
The Handshake. Rumor has it that upon completion of this
scene, Hideo Kojima stated "Yeah let's see Ravi Singh
try making fun of this!" and claimed that it looks "dope."
Snake, back into the Big Shell, tries to find a way
in Arsenal Gear. He continues giving support to Raiden via
Codec and eventually tells him the truth of the Tanker incident
in 2007. Raiden finds Emma Emmerich, the programmer of Arsenal
Gear's AI, and has her cross the Oil Bridge so she can get
to the computer room at Shell 1, for the bridge from Shell
2 to Shell 1 broke thanks to that motherfucking Harrier.
Snake, on his way to give Emma cover with a Sniper Rifle,
is attacked by a Cyborg Ninja similar to Gray Fox from Shadow
Moses. They fight and Snake finds out that under the exoskeleton
is Olga Gurlukovich, the daughter of Sergei Gurlukovich,
new leader of the Gurlukovich Private Army, and the same
woman Snake battled on the Tanker. Snake tells Olga the
truth of the Tanker incident and how Revolver Ocelot betrayed
Sergei and sunk the Tanker. Olga believes this, as Ocelot
is a very suspicious guy. Together, they made a plan to
get themselves and Raiden into Arsenal Gear. Snake then
gets Olga's Codec frequency and runs to the other side of
the Oil Bridge and helps Raiden cover Emma. Near the end
of the bridge, Vamp jumps out of the water and holds Emma
hostage. Raiden shoots Vamp off of the bridge, but as Vamp
was knocked down, he managed to give Emma a deep wound.
What seems very odd is the fact that Snake did nothing to
prevent this. Most likely, he had a better view than Raiden
and could have prevented this but Snake just didn't do it,
for some unknown reason. Snake ditches his rifle, runs up
to the wounded girl, picks her up, and carries her to the
computer room. There he bandaged her as well as he could.
Raiden arrives, gives Emma the optical disc which contained
the digital FoxDie virus which was designed to destroy G.W.,
the AI that controls Arsenal Gear. Apparently, an anti-virus
program didn't allow this to happen, and Emma dies in Otacon's
arms. Otacon goes nearly insane. Snake manages to calm Otacon
down and convinces him to continue their objective to fly
the hostages to safety. Otacon thinks he is doing this only
because he would be interfering with the destruction of
Arsenal Gear, but Snake assures him it's only because he's
"the only one who can do it." They do some weird-ass hand
shake and Otacon walks to where the hostages are kept.
ARSENAL GEAR'S DIGESTIVE SYSTEM
After knocking out Raiden, Snake and Olga share an awkward
Snake turns to Raiden and calls for someone else to
show up. Olga jumps down from the ceiling in her Cyborg
Ninja disguise. Olga reveals herself and Raiden believes
that Snake has betrayed him. Olga knocks Raiden out and
carries him to Arsenal Gear. Snake manages to sneak in
as well with Olga's assistance. Snake changes out of his
Pliskin suit and into his sneaking suit. Olga gives Snake
Raiden's confiscated equipment and clothes, and her HF
Blade. Snake is a bit confused as to why she gives up
the katana, but he doesn't bother to ask and sneaks his
way to a hallway. He sees Raiden running around the hall
completely naked. Snake makes a crack at this and gives
Raiden his equipment and the HF Blade, along with a few
tips as to using it. Snake doesn't want it because he's
"not a fan of blades." After Raiden gets used to using
it, they go off to get to where the twenty-five Metal
Gear RAYs are located. On their way, Snake and Raiden
get caught by a Cypher and an army of Arsenal Tengu soldiers
jump down to take Snake and Raiden out. Snake and Raiden
manage to get to the other side of the hallway, clearing
any armed assholes in their way. They reach another room
and are interrupted by Arsenal Tengus again. They take
down all of the Tengus and are about to continue their
way until Fortune, Dead Cell's leader, walks in with tears
in her eyes. She still believes that Snake killed her
father, Commandant Scott Dolph, in the tanker. Snake tries
to tell her what really happened but Fortune does not
bother to listen. Snake has Raiden go up the ladder as
he attempts to fight Fortune. Fortune has a device that
reflects bullets and causes bombs to become duds. Obviously,
Snake loses and surrenders.
Solid Snake is no match for handcuffs. Raiden, however,
is. Luckily, Snake doesn't trip on Fortune's leg.
Being held captive in handcuffs, Snake is taken
up where most of the RAYs (there to protect Arsenal
Gear) were destroyed by Raiden. Raiden was captured
as well, and faces interrogation by Solidus. Ocelot
then reveals to everyone fact that he's a Patriot spy.
The entire incident, except for the appearance of Solid
Snake, was planned by his people, The Patriots. Even
Fortune's invincibility was set-up, and Ocelot now has
the device with him, and he fatally shoots Fortune.
Ocelot then jumps into the remaining RAY and aims missiles
at Snake, Solidus, Raiden, and a dying Fortune. Fortune
however still manages to reflect the missiles and saves
everyone else before bleeding to death. Ocelot then
was going to kill the rest by using the last remaining
Metal Gear RAY unit, but Snake's voice causes Liquid
Snake to take over. Liquid jumps out and laughs at his
brothers below. Liquid was the one who made Snake come
here by leaking Arsenal Gear information to Otacon so
that Snake can make him take complete control over Ocelot
at the right moment, with this apparently was. Liquid
then states that he was off to destroy the Patriots.
He knows their location since he's been attached to
Ocelot, and apparently they told Ocelot. He jumps into
RAY, and takes off. Snake, being manly, breaks out of
his handcuffs and jumps behind RAY into the ocean. He
manages to plant a tracker onto Liquid's RAY and swims
to safety. Otacon has a boat ready and picks Snake up.
Snake feels like he needs to talk to Raiden because
everything that occurred on that day was really fucked
up. He waits near Federal Hall, and meets Raiden, who's
very confused. Snake tells Raiden he can choose his
own life, his own path, and send his ideas to the next
generation for genes cannot send them. Raiden asks about
Olga's baby, and Snake states that he will take care
of it. As for Liquid, Snake is sure that the Patriots
gave Ocelot a bogus location. He shows Raiden the optical
disc with the virus which should have their names and
locations encoded within it, since that information
is bound to be something Arsenal Gear's AI, G.W., would
want erased. Raiden stated he was ready to help them,
but Snake tells Raiden to finish his business that he
needs to take care of. Snake quickly jumps into Otacon's
car and they drive off when Raiden was not looking.
In a safe area, Otacon analyzes the FoxDie virus and
finds out that all twelve Patriots have died... about
a hundred years ago. Snake can not say anything else
except for "...what the hell?!"

SOLID SNAKE THROUGH THE YEARS
Operation: Intrude N313 (1995)
Metal Gear (1987)
Solid Snake after earning his Snake codename.
Despite numerous rumors, Snake is indeed wearing
a bandanna, as seen in his transmitter picture.
As odd as it may seem, the artwork above is not
done by Yoji Shinkawa despite looking somewhat similar
to his depiction of Snake 1998 and beyond.
Operation: Intrude F014 (1999)
Metal Gear 2: Solid Snake (1990)
Solid Snake's look, along with numerous characters
in Metal Gear 2: Solid Snake, was based off an actor,
in this case Mel Gibson. However, this was changed
in the 2004 mobile phone re-release. Wither or not
Solid Snake hates Jews or not is debatable, but
it's highly unlikely.
Shadow Moses Incident (2005)
Metal Gear Solid (1998)
Yoji Shinkawa created the Solid Snake everyone
can recognize. Or at least, everyone who matters.
In the beginning of Metal Gear Solid, Snake has
long hair, much like Liquid Snake's. In order to
make sure there is no confusion, he cuts his hair
right before he goes off on his mission. Apparently,
Snake is damn good at cutting hair, because the
cut actually does not look bad at all.
The Manhattan Incidents (2007 & 2009)
Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty (2001)
Solid Snake apparently likes the mullet, though
(or just doesn't give a fuck), as he is seen sporting
the style ever since the end of the Shadow Moses
incident. Snake also suffers from rapid aging
due to the fact that the Les Enfant Terribles
project took place in the early 70's when cloning
technology was not as good as it should be. Thus,
his face makes him look older than he really is,
something Liquid Snake mocks when he meets Snake
on the Tanker.
Solid Snake Becomes Old Snake (20XX)
Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots (unreleased)
Old Snake, also known as Grandpa Dave to some,
is really in his 40's despite looking, well, old.
This look is due to the flaws of the Les Enfant
Terribles Project: Big Boss's body at the time
of cloning and the fact that the cloning took
place in 1972, a time where cloning was not really
an established science. Solid Snake, even as Old
Snake, can still kick your ass though, so don't
get caught talking shit.
he is Solid Snake.
Lucky Strikes are his favorite brand of
cigarettes, according to the original release
of Metal Gear 2: Solid Snake.
Told Raiden in Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons
of Liberty that he is "not a fan of blades."
This could be a reference to the shitty and
noncanon Snake's Revenge where Snake has a knife
and uses it a lot. Oddly enough, he sports one
in Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots,
possibly for CQC purposes.
Is often mistaken for his brothers despite
their differences. In Metal Gear Solid, Meryl
at first thinks Solid Snake is Liquid Snake
(despite the lack of British, long hair, and
blondeness). Solidus Snake is able to portray
himself as Solid Snake despite not having a
smoker's throat and being the former President
of the United States. Snake was also able to
pretend his death by using Liquid Snake's dead
body, though this is because of DNA testing
(all the Snakes being clones) and there is the
possibility of Liquid's hair being dyed to make
his resemblance to Snake even more effective.
There is a lot of Otacon and Snake yaoi.
I have no fucking idea why this is, but ok.
Solid Snake is the only product of the Les
Enfant Terribles that is known to not follow
Big Boss' footsteps.
Despite looking the same as his previous
designs by Yoji Shinkawa, Solid Snake as Old
