* Cyborg Ninja/Grey Fox's intro: he cuts, slashes, and bashes his way through a dozen soldiers, parries one guy's bullets he shoots from an assault rifle faster than he can see, and cleanly splits Snake's bullet forcing them to hit near Otacon's head and in the gap between his arm and body. No wonder Hal pisses himself.

* Let's talk some more about ''The Twin Snakes'' cutscenes. Whether or not they diverge too much with the spirit of the original game aside, they definitely lead to some awesome moments.
** Snake gets held up by three Genome soldiers armed with FAMAS rifles. Slowly and calmly turning around with his hands up, he catches them off guard by deflecting one rifle, grabbing another and holding it safely off-line with his left hand, wrapping his leg around the third guy's gun to hold that safe too and finally drawing his SOCOM on the first guy. In other words, he ''reversed a 3-on-1 holdup with martial prowess and quick thinking''. It's likely he would have then easily ordered them all to drop their guns if it weren't for Sniper Wolf stepping in and aiming her laser dead on his chest.

--> [[spoiler:'''Solid Snake:''' [[BadassBoast A strong man doesn't need to read the future. He makes his own.]]]]



* Why the hell isn't Liquid on here yet? I'd say the man is MadeOfIron, but not even iron survives as much as he does. Let's see, he survives [[spoiler:The Hind D blowing up with him in it, crashing in the Hind, REX blowing up with him in it, falling forty feet down off of REX, getting filled with bullets during the Jeep chase, CRASHING the Jeep, and then when FOXDIE finally hits him, it takes him at least five minutes to finally die.]] Talk about a badass.

*** Hell, Snake [[spoiler:beating a tank ''with grenades'']] is so badass, that in MetalGearSolid4 upon Snake's [[spoiler:return to the area of the battle]], if the player contacts Otacon via the Codec, Snake mentions this battle and Otacon asks how he won. Snake's nonchalant explanation ("[[spoiler:I used grenades. Because I didn't have any armor piercing weapons.]]") immediately gives way to Otacon's utter astonishment, capped with him remarking that Snake is a total badass.

* A meta example: when you think Creator/RobPaulsen, you tend to think funny characters like [[WesternAnimation/{{Animaniacs}} Yakko]] or [[WesternAnimation/GoofTroop PJ]]. You don't think characters like the Cyborg Ninja. His portrayal of him in ''The Twin Snakes'' is downright chilling!

[[spoiler: After Otacon/Meryl]] yells hop in, you drive down the escape tunnel and what starts is the most adrenaline inducing music ever in the series and with the countdown going on and excitement that you know this the final part of the game, it isn't uncommon for players to shake from how intense the scene is.

* Real life example: When they were making the Twin Snakes remake for the Game Cube, David Hayter ponied up half a million dollars of his own money to get the entire original voice case back. That...Is awesome.
