Hideo Kojima, the famed creator of theMetal Gear Solidfranchise, has finally come forward to explain how the legendary Solid Snake got his name.
The Metal Gearmastermind explained in a series of posts onTwitter:
The reason I used Snake as a code name in Metal Gear is that a snake was the most appropriate symbol of a living being that hides his presence, and sneaks without making any noise. The reason why I didn’t use any specific snake names like cobra, anaconda or viper was because the protagonist is the player.With regard to Snake's cloned foes, Liquid and Solidus, Kojima elaborated:
Like for of all endings of the any series, the appearance of strongest enemy was a must inMetal Gear Solid. It’s the Snake who can surpass the Snake. Thus I brought about a ‘clone.' Solid vs. Liquid. That wasMetal Gear Solid.And there you have it. Mystery solved. I guess it makes sense... sort of.
