The end of ''Metal Gear Solid 3'' strongly implies (and ''[[VideoGame/MetalGearSolid4GunsOfThePatriots Metal Gear Solid 4]]'' confirms) that [[spoiler:Sigint would later join DARPA under his real name - Donald Anderson (A founder of the Patriots) - and help develop Metal Gear REX. He's kidnapped during the Shadow Moses Incident and replaced with an imposter, Decoy Octopus, who falls dead after being exposed to the FOXDIE virus. Snake later learns that the real Anderson was murdered by Ocelot as part of a plot to dismantle the Patriots' command structure. The Anderson that Snake had spoken to was actually Decoy Octopus.]]

* {{Irony}}: Shortly after Snake gets a nightmare after Para-Medic tells him about Dracula, Sigint tells him about the worst dream he's had, which bore various similarities to Metal Gear, and then asks Snake not to let his dream come true. Snake ends up not being able to keep his promise later in life. Bonus points come in when ''Metal Gear Solid 4'' reveals that Sigint [[spoiler:was actually Donald Anderson, the one who had REX developed in exchange for bribe money]], meaning he didn't even allow himself to prevent his nightmare from coming true, and if we go by ''Peace Walker'', he apparently had a hand in developing the AI Weapons, meaning he made his nightmare come true even before Snake did.

** Concept art of an elderly version of him appeared in ''[[AllThereInTheManual Metal Gear Solid 4: Master Art Works]]'', reflecting an ultimately cut cameo at his grandson's wedding in the game's ending.



* NiceJobFixingItVillain: He has a radio frequency written on the back of his family photo, which just so happens to be Snake's means of escaping, should he take a peak at it.

The other is Quiet, a sniper with the same parasites as Code Talker who has similar abilities to The End, including the ability to photosynthesize for sustenance, the ability to function as a sniper independent of a spotter, and a mastery of camouflage (albiet due to her parasites rendering her invisible rather than clever use of surroundings).]]

* BadassNormal: During WorldWar2, he was in the SAS, so he definitely qualifies.

* BadassNormal: During WorldWar2, UsefulNotes/WorldWarII, he was in the SAS, so he definitely qualifies.



Naked Snake's mentor and a war hero who led the Cobra Unit, a multinational team of elite Supernatural Warriors who practically ''won'' WorldWarTwo for the Allies. During the early events of ''Metal Gear Solid 3'', she defects to the Soviet Union with her fellow Cobras, causing a dramatic power shift between the East and West. This is bad news for Khrushchev, whose political rivals are secretly conspiring with The Boss' new employer. Enraged, Khrushchev threatens war, and D.C. is left with no choice but to slay The Boss and her leader as recompense. Snake now stands accused of colluding in the Boss' defection, and must cooperate in her assassination to save himself and the Major from execution.

* ActionGirl: A huge one. She regularly beats the snot out of Naked Snake and fought in WorldWarII, while ''hugely pregnant'', and became a legendary war hero.

* BadassNormal: The Fury has no powers, just a highly-resilient spacesuit, a jetpack, and an overpowered flamethrower. [[spoiler:SubvertedTrope, as it turns out he was possessed the entire time according to ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolidVThePhantomPain''. See DemonicPossession.]]

* DeadAllAlong: [[spoiler:This is revealed to have been the case in ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolidVThePhantomPain''. Rather than merely suffering extreme burns and becoming a ShellShockedVeteran by his experience with reentry, he had ''died'' on reentry, and his body had undergone DemonicPossession by an unknown [[OurGhostsAreDifferent pyrokinetic entity]] that was unable to escape his body due to him [[{{Determinator}} keeping his sense of self]]. This entity was later used in the creation of the Man on Fire from Volgin's corpse.]]
* DemonicPossession: [[spoiler:He was dead the entire time in his fight with Naked Snake. His body had been commandeered by a pyrokinetic entity that fed on his UnstoppableRage to keep him going. [[VideoGame/MetalGearSolidVThePhantomPain This entity was later moved into Volgin in 1984.]]]]
* {{Determinator}}: [[spoiler:His sheer rage kept him from losing his sense of self to the entity that resurrected him.]]

%%* HighClassGlass* HighClassGlass: Rather surprising for a communist to wear one.



* YourCheatingHeart: Invoked and ultimately averted. When Naked Snake first saw Tatyana (Volgin using her as leverage against Sokolov), he initially thought Sokolov had a girlfriend (note, Sokolov's married and has a daughter). Actually, Tatyana was actually posing as Volgin's lover. The closest she actually has to a relationship with Sokolov is the fact that she was his superior and an errand-girl to Khrushchev. [[spoiler:Or so he believed]].
