Solid Snake (ソリッド・スネーク, Soriddo Sunēku?) is a video game character and the main protagonist of the Metal Gear series of video games by Konami. Introduced in the 1987 video game Metal Gear and created by series creator Hideo Kojima, Solid Snake is a combination spy, special operations agent, and mercenary who works for FOXHOUND, a fictional black ops and espionage unit, and Philanthropy in later games. He is repeatedly tasked with disarming and destroying the latest incarnation of Metal Gear, a bipedal, nuclear-weapon-armed mecha. He is voiced in the Japanese and English releases of the games by seiyū Akio Ōtsuka and actor/screenwriter David Hayter, respectively.

Controlled by the player, Solid Snake must act alone (or with the help of allies he meets during missions), supported via radio by commanding officers and specialists.

In SSBB, Snake is right up there with Metaknight being the other Top Tier character because his tournament wins is just as impressive. This is because his tilts are insanely powerful with immense knock back and his smashes can kill at low percentages so someone light like Kirby & Jigglypuff would have to approach with extreme caution. Snake's disjointed hixboxes are also a factor as to why he is so broken....his F-Tilt, Up-Tilt and A attack can get you even if your a couple feet away.

Apparently, there isn't many who use Solid Snake on NR but that can change very soon. Kirbyfan66 recently picked the guy up and has had moderate success.

Member's opinions on Solid SnakeEdit

  • Resurgence thinks he is a bad ass but finds him VERY overpowered in Brawl.
  • Shambuu doesn't use Snake much in Brawl but loves the Metal Gear Solid series.
  • Sonic really likes Snake as a character and thinks he kicks ass. Snake in Brawl also gave Sonic a lot of respect for the Metal Gear series.
  • Kiske really likes Snake. He thinks he is pretty awesome.


  • The Snake in the video above is actually a young Big Boss.
  • Solid Snake is Big Boss's clone.
  • In Metal Gear Solid, if you get the good ending, he'll name himself David because of his lack of a real name. David is the name of his voice actor.
