Characters / Metal Gear

Go To

The most popular Stealth-Based Game series going, Metal Gear is known in part for extremely talky characters that have a tendency to philosophize under heavy fire. Oh, and just about all of them suffer from huge psychological issues.

Warning: MAJOR UNMARKED SPOILERS AHEAD. Many will be marked, but some, especially on this page, will be unmarked.

Characters are listed on the characters page for the game they debuted in. Please do not list a character again on a second page if they make a reappearance, even if their personality is really different. There are two exceptions: Solid Snake in his Snake's Revenge, Ac!d, and Ghost Babel appearances since he's from an alternate continuity and Big Boss, Liquid Snake, Psycho Mantis, and Volgin in The Phantom Pain because of their drastic changes in character and identity throughout the course of that game.
