* TragicVillain: He's got a tragic past, and has been manipulated his whole life- his actions aren't born out of pure malice so much as a need to lash out at a world that's been relentlessly cruel to him.

* FiveBadBand: With the exception of [[TheUnfought Decoy Octopus,]] they form oneone:



* AcePilot: Manages to shoot down two F-16s with a Hind D.
* ArchEnemy
* ArtisticLicenseBiology: Doesn't know very much about genetics.
** Though at least some of this might be because he just needs to explain it better.
** Also in ''[[VideoGame/MetalGearSolid2SonsOfLiberty Metal Gear Solid 2]]'', it is revealed by Emma Emmerich that [[spoiler:the Patriots have spread much false information throughout society, including on biology. Considering that Liquid's childhood was highly influenced by the Patriots, he probably was outright lied to about biology.]]
** Given a certain revelation in ''Phantom Pain'' (namely, [[spoiler:he actually ''did'' fail biology as a subject in school]]), it's also probable he's just wrong on the particulars.
** It should also be noted that this whole mess is [[EarlyInstallmentWeirdness never mentioned]] in any other games- every time LET is discussed, no mention is made of this Recessive/Dominant nonsense.
* BadassNormal: Although he may argue this due to him being a clone.
** BadAssLongcoat: He has this until the fight with him on the Hind D.
* BadBoss: To some extent: While [[spoiler:posing as Master Miller]], Liquid was shown complaining about how the other FOXHOUND members were not fighting effectively.
* BecauseDestinySaysSo: Says it's his genetic destiny to do what he does.
* BigBad: One of the series' most famous, Liquid Snake was this for [=MGS1=].
* BloodKnight: Happily accepts it, unlike his brother.
* BreakoutVillain

* AcePilot: Manages to shoot down two F-16s with F-16 fighter jets while flying a Hind D.
D helicopter gunship, a highly improbable feat which shows his piloting skills to be world-class.
* ArchEnemy
ArchEnemy: Loathes his brother Solid Snake, whom he accuses of stealing his birthright by inheriting the superior versions of Big Boss' genes, and is obsessed with defeating him in order to prove himself worthy of succeeding Big Boss as the leader of Outer Heaven and the world's greatest soldier. This makes him Solid Snake's most prominent foe throughout the ''Solid'' games next to Revolver Ocelot.
* ArtisticLicenseBiology: Doesn't know very much Gets a lot of things wrong about genetics.

BadAssLongcoat: He has this until Swaggers about in a cool-looking long trench coat, defying the fight freezing weather by wearing it open with him on nothing to protect his torso underneath. He stops wearing it starting from the Hind D.
D bossfight.
* BadassNormal: While having no explicit supernatural powers such as Psycho Mantis' telepathy, nor technological aids like Vamp's nanomachines, he is a clone of the 20th century's most naturally gifted soldier, putting his physical abilities on the level of a CharlesAtlasSuperpower.
* BadBoss: To some extent: Downplayed: While [[spoiler:posing as Master Miller]], Liquid was shown complaining about how the other FOXHOUND members were not fighting effectively.
* BecauseDestinySaysSo: Says that his goal of restoring Outer Heaven and taking over the legacy of Big Boss is based on what's written into his genes, and he intends to embrace this destiny rather than deny it as he accuses Snake of doing.
* BigBad: The leader of the rogue Foxhound Unit whose takeover of Shadow Moses island sets off the events of ''Metal Gear Solid'',
it's him and his genetic destiny to do what he does.

must defeat in order to save the world.
* BloodKnight: BloodKnight: Happily accepts it, unlike his brother.
* BreakoutVillainBreakoutVillain: Although he has a good run as the BigBad of ''Metal Gear Solid'' and kicks the bucket at the end, he turned out to be such a memorable villain that he was brought back for ''Metal Gear Solid 2'' and ''4''.



* CainAndAbel: To Snake. He seems to be trying to invoke the trope; he is ''constantly'' playing up their fraternal link, and his hatred of Snake is unreasonably deep and personal, considering Snake wasn't even aware of his existence until the events of ''MGS''.
* CallingTheOldManOut: He hates Big Boss because he thinks Big Boss knowingly made him the inferior one during the Les Enfants Terribles project, and he implies that one of the main reasons for wanting to continue Big Boss's dream of a world of conflict is so he would further tarnish Big Boss's reputation ("Now I'll finish the work that father began. I will surpass him...I will destroy him!")

For Liquid Ocelot, see Characters/MetalGearSolid2SonsOfLiberty.



* BadBoss: Displays this in [=''MGS4''=], with his hacking the [=SOP=] System twice causing his henchmen to have mental breakdowns. During his second attempt, when Vamp warns him of what might happen, Ocelot tells him outright that he's "[[WeHaveReserves willing to make a few sacrifices]]"; the end result is that several of his troops suffer brain damage and become {{Technically Living Zombie}}s. In the Act 3 mission briefing, Naomi tells Snake and Otacon that Ocelot knew from the very beginning that his hacking attempt in South America would fail, and yet he went ahead with it regardless.

The leader of FOXHOUND, Liquid is the second of the "Sons of Big Boss" introduced. He has a major complex about Solid Snake, and was told for his entire life that his inheritance of Big Boss' recessive genes made him the inferior clone, [[spoiler:when in fact the reverse was true]]. A tyke bearing a strong likeness to Liquid makes an appearance in ''The Phantom Pain'''s trailer, so it is possible that Solid might make his debut as well. WordOfGod says he isn't naturally blond. For his exploits as [[spoiler:Eli]], [[Characters/MetalGearSolidVThePhantomPain go here]].
