Characters (MGS)

These are the antagonists and protagonists in Metal Gear Solid.

[edit] Big Boss


A legendary soldier, and the original "Snake". During the '70s, the U.S. government wanted his genes, so they cloned him, this was known as the Les Enfant Terribles project. From this, Solid, Liquid, and Solidus Snake were born; though we don't know if Solidus was born this way, since he looks much older than Solid and Liquid. He was also the other ex-commander of FOXHOUND. Big Boss was later on killed at Zanzibar Land at the hands of Solid Snake.

[edit] Decoy Octopus


A master of disguise and a member of FOXHOUND. After Revolver Ocelot accidentally kills the DARPA chief while torturing him, Decoy must pose as him so that Snake thinks he is still alive. When Snake meets Decoy (who is posing as the DARPA Chief) Decoy catches the FOXDIE virus from Snake and dies of what looked to be a heart attack.

[edit] Donald Anderson


The chief of DARPA (Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency). He oversees the building and simulation of Metal Gear REX on Shadow Moses Island. When FOXHOUND and the Genome army seize the island he is tortured to death by Ocelot.

[edit] Hal Emmerich


The chief designer of Metal Gear REX, he is under the employ of Arms Tech. After the takeover Snake finds him in the computer room, where he is trying to get away from a mysterious Cyborg Ninja.
