Perhaps one of the few video game characters to have survived 20+ years in the gaming world, Solid Snake is perhaps better known for the innovator if not the father of the modern Stealth Action genre. In his first game, Meta Gear, he played a quiet hero who was one his fist mission for the legendary FOXHOUND unit. He would later evolve into a collected and calm hero that we know and love. His obvious machismo, may make him seem like a clear cut meat head, but Snake has shown to have provided very logical and tactical insights of his mission, as well as the philosophical side of what he believes to be the human condition. As much as he is a badass killing machine, he has shown signs of regret and remorse for all the lives he has taken, showing that even the greatest warriors are also human even when doing an inhumane job.
Snake is probably one of the most well rounded characters out there, with brains and brawns who is not without his share of personal demons and flaws. A legendary warrior nonetheless.
