Metal Gear is a series of stealth video games created by Kojima Hideo which are developed and published by Konami. The player takes control of a special forces operative Solid Snake, assigned to find the titular superweapon "Metal Gear", said to be a bipedal walking tank with the ability to launch nuclear weapons. Several sequels have been released for multiple consoles to this day, with the first game released in 1987 for the MSX2.

I’m not sure who this guy is, but I definitely know that “!” when I see it. Can anyone tell me who he is and from which Metal Gear series he first appeared in? That would be great! Thanks to Mike for sending this in!

EDIT: Thanks to anon for letting me know he is a soldier from the Russian Military Intelligence Agency, Glavnoye Razvedyvatel'noye Upravleniye, simply known as GRU.


  1. He is just a nameless generic guard. The game generate numerous of him. if you kill one of them then dispose the body, he will re-spawn again.

  2. I am the same anon as above.
    Here is a link for information on the nameless guard.
    He is cosplaying as a GRU Soldier.

  3. Thanks anon! I'll edit the post to add the info you provided~ (。・ω・。)

  4. Hahaha! I've always found this part of the game entertaining though at times it can be kinda nerve racking XD

  5. (o;TωT)o I don't like stealth games... I have a weak heart.
