Big Boss is Cross-Dominant.The proof is in Metal Gear Solid 3. When he loses his eye, his vision isn't that much impaired, because only a small part of the screen is affected. This is very much like the vision of one who has ocular dominance in their left eye. (Whenever they close their right eye.) Yet, his dominant hand is the right hand seeing as his gun is always held with the right hand. This troper knows because he too is cross-dominant.
The Boss and Big Boss are Metal Gear's equivalent of Bruce Lee.In physical abilities, that is. Both the Boss and Big Boss are shown to be able to flip someone over without any leverage over them, multiple times. Bruce Lee was able to do similar stuff no average person can do. (Like pushups with only his thumbs)
The Boss's real name is Rosemary.Big Boss is referred to as Jack, and we all know that Kojima likes reusing names. Plus it would be kind of appropriate since The Boss and Rose share the same Japanese voice actor.
Alternatively, the Boss's real name is Joy.Because Joy is an actual English name. Plus, as she is the only Cobra who doesn't appear to embody her emotion, this is the only way that calling her "Joy" would make sense.
Third theory: The Boss's real name is Lilith.If only because we have already have an Adam, Eve, and Snake.
The whole reason Ocelot is such a two-faced dick is because he's a GeminiNot because he was taken from his parents at a few minutes old. Not because he was raised by the evil conspiracy. Not because several intelligence organizations hired him simultaneously (?!). If The Sorrow and The Boss had only got their Marvin Gaye on almost any other time than nine months before D-Day.
The entire series was a Gambit Roulette set up by the SorrowThink about it. He's perfectly content to let the Boss shoot him... My Death Is Just the Beginning anyone? Also, during your "Boss Fight" with him, he makes cryptic remarks about events in the future. And, he's OCELOT'S FATHER. In the Blood indeed...
Big Boss was messing with OcelotAnd Ocelot fell for it. What kind of idiot uses an obsolete revolver in modern combat? No ammo capacity, and very slow reloading time.
Metal Gear Solid 3 takes place chronologically between Metal Gear Solid 2 and Metal Gear Solid 4Metal Gear Solid 3 is a historical reenactment, possibly taking place in an improved V.R. system. It's what Snake does on his day off (Johnny Sasaki too, perhaps).
Metal Gear Solid 3 is a MovieThe first in a series based off of Big Boss' recently released biography, to be precise. Big Boss is, of course, portrayed by David Hayter.
Johnny Sasaki from Snake Eater is the real EvaEva said it herself at the end when talking about the defectors That Adam and Eva were both men, Johnny did say he used to live in America. Also he was so helpful, making sure Snake got food and if you shared your food, he even gave you another weapon and showed you a photo with a radio frequency you could accidentally see written on the back, what a coincidence...
Big Boss didn't kill the JoyThink about it. We have only Big Boss' word for it, and right after the fight migs napalmed the hell out of the body.
Raikov is a Jolteon.One that has taken human form, obviously. Only someone with Volt Absorb could sleep with Volgin on a regular basis without getting so much as a single burn mark.
The Cobra Unit retired during MGS3And Snake was in on it. It was all a plot to get out of the military life, a practice often referred to as desertion.
Volgin is the son of Larxene (from Org. XIII)Both have similar coloring, slasher smiles, are sadists, have lighting powers, hang around with effeminate men and even their weapons are similar (blades in between the fingers for Larxene, Volgin just uses bullets). Volgin seems to have women issues, possibly from abandonment. The age difference could be explained by the fact that Nobodies don't age and it's possible that in her pre-Nobody days Arleen (or Relena) could have been using her female charms on Volgin's father to further herself before becoming the Savage Nymph Kingdom Hearts fans know and either love or loathe.
Volgin is an Occidental Otaku.It would explain why his Survival Mantra is in gratuitous Japanese when he's Russian. And he likes bishies.
Raikov was a woman in disguise, Raiden was her grandson and Volgin was the grandfather.Raikov is practically identical to Raiden, only with a voice that sounds like a woman (badly) imitating a man. This is because "he" wanted to do something for "his" Mother Russia. Affirmative action wasn't in place in the Soviet Union (there certainly aren't any female combatants besides American war hero The Boss) so, like any good Soviet, "he" disguised "his" gender. Miss Raikova was quickly promoted despite being remarkably bishonen for a Russian man. Sometime later, she and a sadistic Colonel fell in love. A sadistic Colonel with lightning powers. GENETIC lightning powers presumably fueled by sadism or something. Volgin saw through her disguise (or, being bisexual, didn't care once the clothes came off). As a side note, this was the real reason Volgin identified Snake as an impostor by grabbing his dick - the real Raikov didn't have one! Sometime before Volgin's death, he knocked Raikova up. Sometime later she gave birth to one (or both) of Raiden's parents, who either developed lightning abilities or they skipped a generation. When Raiden was born, he was orphaned (or whatever the hell happened) and can't remember his parents. So now we have the remarkably pretty depending-on-how-you-view-cyborgs Raiden - the Japanese word for 'lightning' by the way - finally revealing his lightning powers near the end of MGS4. Powers he inherited from his grandfather and looks he scored from his grandmother.
The entire series was just a dream"I'M STILL IN A DREAM, snake eater"
Naked Snake forgets to take the venom gland out of a snake he ate and everything from then on was a hallucinationthat would explain all the supernatural stuff, the insane plot twists in MGS2, and ...pretty much everything that would normally be impossible.
The Boss faked her death at the end of Mission Snake EaterShe then moved to New Jersey, got a sex change operation complete with hair dye and colored contacts, and became a musician. We now know hir as Bruce Springsteen. They are both known as The Boss, after all, so they must be the same person!
In Snake Eater 3D, you can eat a YoshiWe've seen one in the trailer.
In Snake Eater 3D, the 3D effect will be disabled when Snake loses his eye.Seems like something Kojima would do.
The End's surname was LaBeouf and was a Texas Ranger in his youth.He invented the basics of sniping when he shot a notorious gang leader from more than 400 meters away to stop him from killing an old and fat one-eyed Federal Marshall and kept improving his technique from there. As a side effect of developing photosynthesis, he was also able to use the sun's healing power to heal a nasty wound to his tongue that left it nearly severed.
Metal Gear Solid 3 is Solid Snake in the Animus.He talks to Raiden about the differences between virtual reality and real life and seems pretty knowledgeable about it. Also, if the player kills Sokolov, Ocelot or EVA, Colonel Campbell can be heard telling Snake off for creating a time paradox. "Time Paradox" could be Foxhound's own Animus' type of desynchronisation. As for why he's in the Animus, they could be trying to teach Snake about CQC, and I can't think of a better way to do so than use the bleeding effect from the man who helped create it, Big Boss.
The Cobras' code names represented the emotions they instilled in others, not the emotions they felt themselves.Hence why the Sorrow is always seen smiling, but the Joy/Boss isn't. Naturally, it would cause their code names to seem a touch ironic. To illustrate this:
Crack idea: Cordellia Gallo is The Boss' mentor
Doctor Zoidberg exists in the Metal Gear Solid universe and was in WWIIHe was, in fact, the one doing the C-section to the Boss. He was convinced the baby rested inside a ribcage
Jack -does- find an emotion to carry into battle.And it's The Truth. He's one of few people to know what really happened in Operation Snake Eater, and he went on to found two different paramilitary organizations that allowed their members to always have a place on the battlefield. Fighting for the sake of fighting is the Truest form of fighting. Plus everything he does is based on the memory of The Boss - he's always carrying inside of him the Truth of how his mentor and the greatest soldier of her time was betrayed by her nation, and he doesn't want to see that happen to another soldier again.
Jack didn't meet The Boss by coincidenceEVA and Ocelot were raised in Philosophers' charm schools and groomed to become agents as adults, and coincidentally The Boss was a teacher in those charm schools and this is how she knew Ocelot and EVA were both applicants of that program. However Snake apparently is the only one who knew The Boss through regular means, and just so happened to become her apprentice by random chance. However what if that's not the case? What if the Philosophers knew all the way back in the 30s that certain people would grow up to have special genes and they picked Jack because they knew he was special? And from the get go they set him up to meet The Boss so that she could foster a soldier with those traits? Big Boss's life would have another layer of tragedy tailored on top of everything else, his entire life would be a well crafted and engineered lie, with the only pocket of meaning to be found in the whole messed up affair being the human decency of The Boss.
