1[[WMG: The events of the game is actually a VR Simulation played by Raiden.]]²²In ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolid2SonsOfLiberty'', Raiden has done VR simulations of [[VideoGame/MetalGear1 Outer Heaven]] and [[VideoGame/MetalGear2SolidSnake Zanzibar Land]]. No one outside of Colonel Campbell and Snake knew about the reveal that Big Boss is Snake's father. Not even Snake's support staff in the game itself (except Kaz, who knew everything since ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolidVThePhantomPain''). The game's lack of reveal, despite being acknowledged in the third game, may have something to do with making sure no one else knows about who Big Boss was outside of being Snake's former Commanding Officer.²²[[WMG: The events of ''VideoGame/MetalGear2SolidSnake'' as we know them are [[ShowWithinAShow actually a movie]] [[VeryLooselyBasedOnATrueStory based on the (in universe) real event]] of what happened in Zanzibar Land.]]²²In ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolid'', 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 [[LukeIAmYourFather 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 Creator/MelGibson and Big Boss appears as Creator/SeanConnery amongst others is that they are being portrayed by those actors in universe.


How well does it match the trope?
