Snake's Codec Conversation

Snake: Hey that's Darth Vader!

Colonel: Good eye, Snake! He is one of the greatest movie characters of all time. He was born as Anakin Skywalker, lives on Tatooine as a slave. He surved the Jedi Order, and fought for the Republic in the Clone Wars. But later during the end of the war he had a nightmare about his wife Padme Amadala dying when she gives birth to their baby.

Snake: I thought you were going to say babies since she gave birth to Luke and Leia.

Colonel: Yes, she did, but before that happened they thought there is going to be a baby.

Snake: Yes I know

Colonel: You don't have to.

Snake: Hmph!

Colonel: Anyways, when he told the Jedi Master Mace Windu that Palpatine was a Sith Lord named "Darth Sidious," he tries to kill him.But Anakin stoped him,and helped The Emperor to kill him. Then after that Sidious made him a sith and named him Darth Vader. He attempted to destroy the jedi in the Jedi Temple. After he did that, he went to Mustafar and kill all the remains of the CIS . He then saw his wife's ship flying to the platform. Vader went to the platform. Padme trys to convince him to come back but then he saw his former master Obi-Wan Kenobi. Vader incorrected himself that Padme had sent Obi-Wan to kill him, he then force chokes her. Obi-Wan tells Vader to let her go, and releases her. Then Vader and Obi-Wan fought in a lightsaber duel, Obi-Wan won and that made Vader lose his left arm and both legs. He toped over then he got burned. As Obi-Wan watches Vader's surffering he walked away. Vader's skin has turned into this burnt up crisp. As Palpatine found his apprentice he took him to the Emperor Palpatine Surgical Reconstoction Center. Now he has a life support suit and he is now more machiene than man. As his children were born, Padme tells Obi-Wan that there was good in Anakin, then passes away. When Vader awakes, he asks Sidious if Padme is OK, but Palpatine says "It seems in your anger, you killed her," when that happened Anakin is gone. Now Darth Vader continues surving Darth Sidious for many years...

Snake: Until he saves his son "Luke Skywalker" then kills himself and the Emperor.

Colonel: Hey! I was gonna say that! Anyways, now it's the time to fight, now get out there and show the Dark Lord of the Sith himself what your made of, no regrets!

Snake: Wait, you said that when we were talking about Mario.

Colonel: Sorry, Snake, I just felt like doing that.

Kratos' Tip from Gaia

Gaia: "Born as Anakin Skywalker, he served as a Jedi knight during the waning days of the Republic. Now, he, who was desperate to save his wife from death, has turned to the dark side, and became Darth Vader. Do not underestimate him, Kratos. He has more power than you can imagine, despite him being severly burned and injured during his defeat at the hands of his former master. Now, he is more machine than man. Study his power carefully, and you will be able to defeat the Dark Lord of the Sith."
