Liquid Snake

Revolver Ocelot

Decoy Octopus

  • The Blank: In the "invisible man" sense. He's such a master of disguise that his mental projection of himself is just a hat and a coat worn by empty space. (Because he's a Bogart fan.)
  • Gender Bender: Can shapeshift into women if provided one's blood, but he's very uncomfortable in such forms, since it's a rather thorough transformation.
  • Master of Disguise: It involves using the blood of his target to perfectly mimic them. Notably, this is one part of the game the comic gets straight up wrong. There were no supernatural abilities involved with Octopus; he was just a good make-up artist and actor, and on one occasion used the nanomachines in a target's blood to complete the disguise.
  • Nice Hat: Used to differentiate him from whomever he's impersonating.
  • Power Perversion Potential: Uses his disguise abilities to play naughty pranks and get away with it.
  • Shapeshifter Default Form: For a while it's some random villain whose form he took. Then he ran out of his blood. For the middle third of the comic, he took Ocelot's form, and for the last third, Liquid's.
  • Tempting Fate: When informed he has to stay put after talking to Snake in preparation for his infiltration of Shadow Moses, he describes it as "the best plan ever." He's the first member of FOXHOUND to die, thanks to Fox Die.
  • Token Good Teammate: "Good" is a stretch, but he's never killed anyone, nor has he been shown wanting to. Compared to his teammates, that makes him a saint.

Vulcan Raven

Sniper Wolf

  • Absolute Cleavage: Which is caused by her shirt being Shrunk in the Wash.
  • Cold Sniper: Though more snarky than anything else.
  • The Insomniac: Makes sure to be awake almost all the time... but this leads to her going insane periodically, followed by an insanely long coma when she falls asleep.
  • What the Hell Is That Accent?: Lampshaded, even. It's the trope's current page image. Not helped by the fact that her Kurdish heritage isn't even mentioned.
    • Further lampshaded in one of the mailbox segments, in which Big Boss is shocked to finally find out she's a Kurd, saying "I thought she was French...Or German, or Swedish, or Hungarian."

Psycho Mantis


  • Brought Down to Normal: After nearly dying by electrocution in a fight with the Cyborg Ninja, Berthold loses his telepathic abilities and his ability to understand humans.
  • Canine Companion: To Sniper Wolf. He's incredibly loyal to her.
  • Intellectual Animal: Tends to speak in a fairly refined manner, and tends to be condescending to the dumber characters.
  • Irony: He can't communicate directly with Psycho Mantis, despite the latter also being psychic. It's implied Mantis's mask has something to do with it, as the one time in the comic he's seen without it, he thinks he heard Berthold "speak."
  • Monster Progenitor: Those Wolf-Dogs you deal with in the caves behind the Commander's office? He fathered all of them.
  • Not So Above It All: He's initially annoyed when the dogs at Shadow Moses prove to be far ditzier than him...until they bluntly offer to have sex with him. In his own words, "Conversation is overrated anyway."
  • Snarky Non-Human Sidekick: Though he keeps most of snark to either himself or Liquid. Wolf doesn't even know he can telepathically communicate.


    Other Associated FOXHOUND Personnel 

Colonel Roy Campbell

  • Only Sane Man: Probably the reason he's FOXHOUND's commanding officer, at first.
  • Screw This, I'm Outta Here!/You Are in Command Now: He's more than happy to leave Liquid in charge of FOXHOUND and retire from military service, which coincides with Mantis blowing up FOXHOUND headquarters during a psychic temper tantrum.

Mei Ling

  • Genius Ditz: As kooky as she is, she's still smart enough to develop Codec, the Soliton Radar, and anti-telepathy nanomachines. She also has the foresight to inject herself with the latter before speaking with Psycho Mantis. When Vulcan Raven is reluctant to use any of her nanomachines, they end up quoting a Long List of proverbs at each other to support their arguments.
  • Genki Girl: She peppered her powerpoint with Hello Kitty clipart for crying out loud.
  • Fangirl: A big fan of FOXHOUND in general. Mantis doesn't appreciate it.
  • Food as Bribe: When Mantis' attempts to telepathically force her to reveal the secret to her anti-telepathy nanomachines prove fruitless (due to her having the foresight to use them on herself prior to the meeting), she proves much more pliable when Mantis offers her ice cream instead.

Meryl Silverbergh

  • Adorkable: She's very enthusiastic about becoming a soldier.
  • Mildly Military: She actually calls her uncle over an unsecured phone in order to gush about her new — and very classified — assignment.

Naomi Hunter

Gray Fox/Frank Jaeger

  • Big Brother Instinct: Naomi is the only character he's consistently nice to, even in the depths of his insanity. He also reacts poorly to find out Liquid dated her.
  • Cool Sword: He actually manages to parry Mantis' psychic lightning with it.

Desert Vulture

Nano Jackal


  • Canon Foreigner: Not from the games.
  • Defeat Means Friendship: He's recruited by FOXHOUND when they just happen to rob a store that Sniper Wolf is shopping in.
  • He Knows Too Much: Liquid (seemingly) kills him and his partner-in-crime Scratch for this.
  • Telepathy: Despite his girth, he's a telepath.
  • Uncertain Doom: It's unclear if Liquid had Mantis kill him or simply erased a non-specific portion of his memories.


Solid Snake

  • Always Someone Better: Liquid really, really has a hate-boner for him, due to Big Boss praising his soldiering skills over Liquid's.
  • The Ghost: Never appears in the comic, save for a few silhouettes in the last pages. Though his impact is felt even before the Shadow Moses Incident.
  • The Voiceless: The few times he "appears" in the comic, we never hear him speak.

    Cobra Unit 

The Boss

The Pain

The Fury

The Fear

The End

The Sorrow

    Dead Cell 


  • Depraved Bisexual: He's more forward about it compared to his source. According to his CO, this is the real reason he's called "Vamp".


Old Boy (Colonel Klaus Mettke)

  • Bilingual Bonus: He exclusively speaks German, but his team seems to understand him.
  • Those Wacky Nazis: Formerly. The Cobras' World War II flashback shows him as a young(er) man


    U.S. Government 

President "George Sears", a.k.a. Solidus Snake

DARPA Chief Donald Anderson


Sergei Gurlukovich



Big Boss

Kenneth Baker

Dr. Hal "Otacon" Emmerich

  • Adult Child: He still plays with Transformers toys despite being in his mid-twenties.
  • Genius Ditz: Has invented both stealth suits and giant robots in his time, yet is cheerfully oblivious that he's developing a nuclear-equipped walking deathmobile.
  • Morality Pet: Seems to be one for Wolf. At the very least, she stands up for him when other members of FOXHOUND are disparaging him behind his back.
  • Nice Guy: Perhaps the friendliest member of the cast.
  • Potty Failure: He wets himself when startled in extremely scary situations.
