I'm no hero. Never was. Never will be.
~ Snake to Meryl

Solid Snake is the main protagonist of the Metal Gear series. He appeared in the 48th episode of Death Battle, Solid Snake VS Sam Fisher, where he fought against Splinter Cell protagonist Sam Fisher. He was voiced by Christopher Sabat, while his assistant Otacon was voiced by Brad Venable.


David was a former spy, special operations soldier, and mercenary. He was a product of the Les Enfants Terribles project; one of the clones of legendary soldier Big Boss, along with his clone brothers Liquid Snake and Solidus Snake.

Possessing an IQ of 180 and being fluent in six languages, he was known as "the man who makes the impossible possible" and his exploits made him into a living legend among the military black ops. Initially a Green Beret, Snake was later inducted into High-Tech Special Forces Unit FOXHOUND in the mid 1990s while it was under the leadership of Big Boss. Repeatedly tasked with disarming and destroying the latest incarnation of Metal Gear, a bipedal nuclear weapon-armed tank, Solid Snake would thrice avert potential nuclear catastrophe, becoming a famed war hero.

Death Battle Quotes

Note: Otacon's quotes are highlighted in Bold.

  • Ok Snake, I've finished uploading the building schematics to your Solid Eye. The intel we need is inside. Should be a piece of cake, but... there's one heat signature inside.
  • Just one?
  • Yeah. Maybe everyone's out for a late night dinner?
  • Thanks Otacon. Piece of cake.
  • Snake, he's in the room...
  • Where's the data?
  • I'm not alone. Somebody beat me to the intel and destroyed the source. Think he's with Praying Mantis? Raven Sword?
  • If they're operating out here, it couldn't possibly be anyone we're familiar with. I'll start scanning radio frequencies to see if I can find any comm lines, but Snake... Until we know what you're up against, I suggest you keep yourself out of sight.
  • I already got it covered.
  • Please tell me it's not a cardboard box.
  • Do I need to go over this again? The cardboard box is a very important tool for infiltration missions. It's ideal for fooling the enemy.
  • Snake, this is insane.
  • Otacon. I'm not exaggerating when I say the success of my mission hinges on how I use this cardboard box. But in the end, a cardboard box...
  • only made of paper.
  • Otacon, I've got the intel.
  • Hello? Is this thing on?
  • I'm Otacon. I'm impressed! Your security's pretty state of the art. Not good enough though, sorry.
  • Long enough, but right now Ms. Grim, I've got to shut you down.
  • You're pretty good.
  • Piece of cake.
