Metal Gear 2: Solid Snake
The events of Metal Gear 2: Solid Snake as we know them are actually a movie based on the (in universe) real event of what happened in Zanzibar Land.

In Metal Gear Solid, Campbell states that he and Snake are the only ones who know the real truth of what happened in Zanzibar Land. Couple this with the lack of Big Boss' revelation to Snake within the game and the original version of the game's use of celebrity portraits for the characters. The reason that Snake looks like Mel Gibson and Big Boss appears as Sean Connery amongst others is that they are being portrayed by those actors in universe.
