The Sons of The Boss

Sort by: Showing 8 items
Rating: List Type:
Average listal rating (20 ratings) 5.7 IMDB Rating 0
The Boss

I've been waiting, Snake, for a long time. Waiting for your birth, your growth, and the finality of today.

Also known as: The Joy, Voyevoda, The Legendary Soldier
Nationality: American
Role: Leader of Cobra Unit
Skills: Hardened War Veteran, Expert at CQC & Expert Marksmen, Training Instructor
Equipment: Patriot Machinegun, 'Snake' Sneaking Suit
Battles with N. Snake: 1 Time

My Thoughts: The over-arcing enigma throughout the entire story. The Boss instantly won my heart from her first appearance. She managed to bitch-slap every man throughout the game and struck fear in the stoutest of hearts.

As a hero of a nation, The Boss had a lot of pressure on her aswell as responsibilities to her country. With this came a lot of sadness and betrayal which lead to some of her decisions. She was a true patriot and I loved her duty to her country.

Yevgeny Borisovitch Volgin

I wasn't aware my methods needed your approval! I'm in control here!

Also known as: Thunderbolt
Nationality: Russian
Role: GRU Colonel, Philosopher's Legacy Owner
Skills: Electric Manipulation, Sub-par Torturer
Equipment: Bullets, The Shagohod
Battles with N. Snake: 2 Times

My Thoughts: The sadist of all sadists. Volgin was holding all aces at the beginning of the game. He thought he had the world under his boot but this was the whole plan!

Volgin proved to be quite a worthy adversary, an unstoppable force at the conclusion of the game, and a competent madman with chaos on his mind.

Average listal rating (8 ratings) 7.8 IMDB Rating 0

It doesn't feel right to kill an unarmed man... but I'll get over it.

Also known as: Adamska
Nationality: Russian/American
Role: Leader of Ocelot Unit
Skills: Expert Gunhandler
Equipment: Colt Single Action Army Revolvers
Battles with N. Snake: 2 Times

My Thoughts: Haha, good ol' Ocelot. Not only could he defeat a swarm of hornets with his fancy gunplay but manages to show up just to wind you up.

He instantly has a problem with Snake and makes it his goal throughout the operation to be there. His persistance is legendary and his ultimate role is a great development.

The Sorrow

You will be killed by your sons.

Also known as: Spirit Medium Soldier
Nationality: Russian
Role: Former Member of Cobra Unit
Skills: Spirit Medium
Equipment: None
Battles with N. Snake: 1 Time

My Thoughts: The happy chappy of the bunch. This guy met his end at the hands of his former commander but still manages to show up in this game for some handy hints aswell as a really chilling memorium of all the soldiers you killed.

He looked quite menacing with his hood up and his piercing eyes, appearing over the shoulders of anyone with a death wish. I found his backstory quite interesting aswell. :-)

The Fury

Behold the flames of fury, the fires in hell shall purge me clean!

Also known as: Flame Soldier
Nationality: Russian
Role: Member of Cobra Unit
Skills: Cosmonaut, Arson
Equipment: Flamethrower, Jetpack
Battles with N. Snake: 1 Time

My Thoughts: Fireball. Fireball from Running Man. An Insane Fireball from Running Man.

The battle was quite entertaining. Reminiscent of battling Vulcan Raven, running around the grid avoiding the danger. The liquid fire which engulfs everything is also a magnificent sight too.

The End

...I beg of you, grant me the strength to take this... final prey... let me linger in this world just a little longer.

Also known as: Ancient Sniper
Nationality: Unknown
Role: Member of Cobra Unit
Skills: Legendary Sniper
Equipment: A Parrot, Modified M1891/30 Mosin Nagant Sniper Rifle, Stun Grenades
Battles with N. Snake: 1 Time

My Thoughts: Legend. Probably one of the greatest duels I've ever taken part in. Set across three zones of a jungle, you have to out snipe this prehistoric sharpshooter.

His camo is impossible to see and he still has speed in his old bones. He managed to sneak up on me once and I'll never be able to live it down but I gave him the fight of his life in the end. lolza

The Fear

I shall fill you with fear as you have never experienced before!

Also known as: Spider Soldier
Nationality: Unknown
Role: Member of Cobra Unit
Skills: Master Trapper, Acrobat
Equipment: Two Crossbows (William Tell & Little Boy), Stealth Camouflage
Battles with N. Snake: 1 Time

My Thoughts: When I first saw him, I thought he was a suave-looking chap with his slicked back hair and humanly appearance. Then he opened his mouth to show a forked tongue, clicked his limbs out of place and started jumping about the trees.

I was disgusted with how they ruined my first impression but when you're dealing with the Spider Soldier, its exactly what you expect. Urgh....

Average listal rating (9 ratings) 4.7 IMDB Rating 0
The Pain

I shall send you to a world of anguish beyond your imagination!

Also known as: Hornet Soldier
Nationality: Unknown
Role: Member of Cobra Unit
Skills: Controlling swarms of hornets
Equipment: Tommy Gun, Grenades, Bullet Bees
Battles with N. Snake: 1 Time

My Thoughts: Boring. He just stands in front of you on an island with a swarm of hornets as a shield. I wasted him with some shotty rounds and he never got up again.

No wonder he was the first Cobra you face. I liked the unique idea for his offence but it just seem a little out of place in the Russian jungle.


Part of the Metal Gear Series.

During the Cold War, an insane Russian Colonel plans to develop a tank that can launch ICBMs at the United States from anywhere in the world. The Boss, a legendary WW2 veteran, has defected from the United States to join this renegade force. She also rounds up her old squad, the Cobra Unit, who were said to have single handedly won the war against the Axis powers. The US Government decides that only one man can take on this threat, her last apprentice, John aka Naked Snake. This is the start of Operation: Snake Eater.

The voice actors are displayed here as the entry for each member.
