The destruction Liquid caused while telepathically controlling the Metal Gear shocked even Skull Face himself. Unable to back up his threat of a nuclear strike, Mantis suggested to Liquid that Decoy Octopus disguise himself as an imprisoned Anderson, to await rescue from U.S. Dummied content within the game suggested that Eli, as Liquid Snake, would have been playable in some capacity. Unbeknownst to him, however, XOF, now reintegrated with Cipher, were also pursuing him and his "giant in the sky. On Twitter, Kojima took some time to explain his reasoning behind the name 'Snake', and the three adjectives, 'Solid', 'Liquid', and 'Solidus'. Yūtarō Honjō dubbed the character's voice for the Japanese version. In 1972, Liquid and Solid were born as a result of the secret "Les Enfants Terribles" project designed to create the perfect soldier, using the genes of Big Boss, who was at the time considered the "Greatest Warrior of the 20th Century". Rushmore-like feature on Outer Haven's hull, at Shadow Moses Island. Physical description When facing Eli, when he says "Not yet Snake, it's not over yet!" Rebenok, who felt psychically attracted to people who were driven by strong hatred, had identified Eli's feelings of hate towards Big Boss as even greater than those of his former employer, Skull Face, and had therefore switched his allegiance to Eli and imprinted on him, allowing himself be used as a conduit by Eli to hijack Metal Gear Sahelanthropus in order for Eli to enact his vengeance against Venom Snake. Like his brother, Liquid Snake does not appear in the prequel Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater, although he is foreshadowed on a few occasions, such as comments made by The Sorrow and Para-Medic, regarding Naked Snake's sons and his genes, respectively. The shock from this episode causes Snake to throw up and his Psyche Gauge lowers drastically. [42] Liquid's popularity was large enough that he inspired in the creation of other antagonists such as Cecile Carlyle, the main antagonist of WinBack: Covert Operations a similar game to the Metal Gear series. forces. Though it seemed that Snake was victorious, Liquid survived the fall from REX. Liquid: I'm you. Hideo Kojima made Liquid Snake a clone in order to create a strong opponent for Solid Snake, and thus a worthy final boss for a video game, citing that, "It's Snake who can surpass the Snake. [29] Upon hearing of the FOXHOUND unit during the 1990s, he expressed interest in it and dubbed his activities "jackal hunting," which was a rudimentary Middle Eastern equivalent of FOXHOUND. The incident was deliberately brought about to coincide with the signing of the START III Accord between the U.S. and Russia: exposing REX's existence would put the signing of the treaty in jeopardy, erode confidence in America’s commitment to non-proliferation, and create international turmoil. [28] During his time of brainwashing, he also set about creating international networks. Just as he was about to kill them, as they were both trapped underneath their vehicle, Liquid suddenly lurched backwards and collapsed to the ground, succumbing to the FOXDIE virus. However, he did seem to possess some skewed sense of pride and honor by letting Snake live to fight him unbound and unarmed in a one-on-one duel (presumably in an attempt to feed his ego). These torture rounds, as well as the interrogation squads' sadistic reactions to rubbing salt into Liquid's wounds under Saddam's command, were what led Liquid to believe that humanity, when absolutely free, were vicious and irredeemably evil, almost similar to beasts. The first depends on whether the predators most likely to prey upon hognose snakes are “smart” enough to recognize the death-feigning act (and here I mean of the North American species of the genus Heterodon: H. platirhinos, H. simus and H. nasicus). During the Tokyo Game Show trailer of the game, the book detailing their exploits was also seen on Hideo Kojima's desk, implying that he used it as a basis for writing the character.[32].
