Hideo Kojima, the famed creator of the Metal Gear Solid franchise, has finally come forward to explain how the legendary Solid Snake got his name.
The Metal Gear mastermind explained in a series of posts on Twitter:
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 in Metal Gear Solid. It’s the Snake who can surpass the Snake. Thus I brought about a ‘clone.' Solid vs. Liquid. That was Metal Gear Solid.And there you have it. Mystery solved. I guess it makes sense... sort of.
