How To Unlock

Character Description

(Description will be fixed soon)

  • Metal Gear
  • Metal Gear Solid
  • Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots


Ground Attacks

  • Neutral A - Punch, Punch, Spinkick.
  • Dash Attack - Snake does a somersault forward, and ends up half-crouching at the end.
  • Down Tilt - Snake is fully prone while crouching, and he sweeps his legs around.
  • Up Tilt - Snake kicks one leg up vertically.
  • Forward Tilt - Does a knee-thrust forward with great speed and large range, and if A is pressed again, he will follow-up with an overhead swing of both arms, which has high knockback and an incredibly large range (it has a huge disjointed invisible hitbox like his up tilt).

Smash Attacks

  • Up Smash - Snake takes out a mortar, which comes from Metal Gear Solid 4, and slams it in front of him. He charges up the mortar, and fires a shell into the air.
  • Down Smash - Snake crouches and starts digging a hole in the ground as he charges, and sets a landmine.
  • Forward Smash - This attack is from Metal Gear Solid 3. Snake takes an RPG-7 rocket launcher and aims it at the ground directly in front of him, causing an explosion when released.

Aerial Attacks

  • Neutral Aerial - Snake performs four quick kicks in the air.
  • Back Aerial - Snake kicks his legs out behind him, making him lie flat in the air.
  • Forward Aerial - Snake lifts a leg to head height and axe-drops it down.
  • Up Aerial - Thrusts his legs straight upwards.

Grabs and Throws

  • Grab - Holds his opponent in a restraining chokehold, which is a grabbing position unique to Snake.
  • Pummel - Tightens his chokehold.
  • Back Throw - Throws opponent over his knee.
  • Up Throw - Back suplex.
  • Down Throw - Lays opponent on the floor, putting the opponent into the downed status.
  • Forward Throw - Flips them over and drops them (scoop slam).

Special Moves

  • Standard Special - Hand Grenade
  • Side Special - Remote Missle
  • Up Speical - Cypher
  • Down Special - C4
  • Final Smash - Grenade Launcher
  • Final Smash #2 - (Coming Soon)
  • Final Smash #3 - (Coming Soon)


  • All - Puts a cardboard box over himself, which is removable. Depending on which button you press, Snake will get in the box in a different position. When he removes it, the enemy receives some damage (if they are in close range). The box can also be picked up and thrown by opponents. This gives 2% damage, making it the second damaging taunt in the Smash series after Luigi's down taunt. If an opponent is in the air and is hit by the box, it will act like a meteor smash and the opponent will go straight downwards.
  • Smash Taunt - Kneels down and contacts his support team - Colonel Campbell, Otacon, and Mei Ling, and also Slippy Toad (only when in a Brawl with Falco) and Peppy Hare (only when in a Brawl with Krystal) - via his codec. Snake then receives information on one of his opponents; this goes for every fighter in the game, including himself, and with separate conversations for Sheik and Zero Suit Samus. This is possible only on Snake's home stage Shadow Moses Island, and is performed by down taunting extremely quickly. Snake will hold a pose for a few seconds, then a conversation between Snake and his support team will begin. You can do this only once each round and if you are hit while Snake is holding his pose before the conversation starts, it is cancelled. However, you can be hit while the conversation is going, though the conversation ends if Snake is KO'd, which, in a nod to the Metal Gear Solid game over screens, causes the character Snake was talking with to shout "SNAAAAAAAAKE!!". It can be done with any number of other players on the screen, but if there is more than one opponent the game will randomly choose one character to talk about.


On-Screen Appearence

  • Appears kneeling like after making a freefall jump as his stealth camouflage breaks up. He sometimes says "Kept you waiting, huh?" as a reference to the freefall jump from MGS2.

Victory Pose

  • Throws off his cardboard box and stands up, saying "Not even close!"
  • Crawls forward a step and rolls into a crouching position, saying into his codec "This is Snake. I'm done here."
  • Seen in a crouching position from the side saying "Colonel, mission accomplished." into his codec.

Snake Teams Up With Lucario & Meta Knight In The Demon Halberd

Snake's Codec Conversation

Snake: "Colonel, it's me! I'm fighting myself!"
Colonel: "Snake, what's going on out there?! Could it be...? Has the 'Les Enfants Terribles' project really come this far?"
Snake: "It's more than that. He's got my moves, my gear... It's like looking in a mirror."
Colonel: "Do you think they collected data on you and created another Snake...?"
Snake: "He's got the same build, too. Creepy. But his Sneaking Suit is a different color. And his tactics are slightly different."
Colonel: "Interesting. So even if you're evenly matched in power, your fighting styles will make a big difference. You've faced tougher odds in the past, Snake. Don't let this impostor beat you!"
