Things Nobody Wants To Admit About Metal Gear Solid

The kind you could only ever see in video games, and at times this jumps the shark into the realm of stupidity. What are some of the dumber things that we’ve seen in the Metal Gear Solid series that everyone just happened to ignore?

FOXDIE (Metal Gear Solid 4)


In Metal Gear Solid 4, Solid Snake possesses FOXDIE, a virus responsible for killing Liquid Snake in the first game. Eventually this kills Liquid Ocelot in the climactic final battle of Metal Gear Solid 4. But why then? Why doesn’t it activate at the docks where Ocelot beats the ever loving tar out of him, even electrocuting Snake in the process? We suppose it only waits for the game to be over before finally working (again, see MGS1).



Trying to make sense of everything that happened in Metal Gear Solid 2 isn’t easy; never mind all the nonsense that occurs in Metal Gear Solid 4. However, Kojima’s team found a pretty simple cop-out for pretty much everything: Nanomachines! Why is Vamp immortal? Nanomachines? Why can’t Naomi die? Nanomachines! But seriously, nanomachines. That’s all you need to know

Raiden’s Naked Romp


Of the many strange things in Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty, Raiden running around naked following his escape from captivity seems rather tame. Then you remember that Snake kept his pants on in the first game after being in a similar scenario. Then you wonder how hard it really is to steal another pair of pants in a military base. Dammit Raiden.

Volgin’s Big Mouth


The Philosopher’s Legacy is the location of tons and tons of cash stashed by the world’s superpowers. Clearly you wouldn’t just blurt out its location or indicate that information of said location is nearby, right? Well, no one taught those life lessons to Volgin when he was torturing Naked Snake. Granted, he probably thought he had Snake dead to rights and that he totally wasn’t going to escape but still.

Quiet Covered Up 


In Metal Gear Solid 5: The Phantom Pain, Quiet has been modified with superhuman abilities. Due to the nature of burns received at the beginning of the game, she has to breathe through her skin. The best way to deal with Quiet then is by covering her up, thus suffocating her. Why then is one of the alternate costumes something that covers her entire body? Wouldn’t that kill her?
