* BadassGrandpa: Several. There's Big Boss, Revolver Ocelot, and The End. Solid Snake becomes one in ''Metal Gear Solid 4'', and [[spoiler:EVA is a badass grandma in the same game as well]]. Snake's case is a DeconstructedCharacterArchetype, as Snake fighting in spite of his condition isn't solely treated as being heroic or inspiring. Rather, it's occasionally treated as being foolish and suicidal by the other characters at the minimum, and said characters aren't above patronizing and treating him like a burden.

* LegacyCharacter: Big Boss was the original Snake and Solid Snake inherited the codename from him. While Liquid and Solidus both have "Snake" in their full codenames as well, only Solid is referred as "Snake" by other characters.
** [[spoiler:As did Venom Snake, who also inherited the title "Big Boss".]]

* LegacyCharacter: ''[=MGS3=]'' was the first game to establish the fact that Big Boss was used the original Snake and codename before his clones were conceived, essentially turning Solid Snake inherited the codename from him. While into this (not so much for Liquid and Solidus both have "Snake" in their full codenames as well, only Solid is referred as "Snake" by other characters.
** [[spoiler:As did Venom Snake,
though, who also inherited are never actually addressed as Snake by anyone). This is further emphasized in the subsequent prequels (''MPO'', ''PW'' and ''GZ'') where Big Boss continues using the Snake codename, despite having already been awarded the title "Big Boss".of Boss by that point. ''TPP'' takes this idea further by [[spoiler:making the main character into a body double of Big Boss, making him the third playable Snake in the mainline series.]]
