Best Metal Gear Solid Characters

Since MGS 4 is coming soon, I thought let's make a Metal Gear list. Well this is a list of the characters of all the MGS. Who's the best character of em all.
The Top Ten
1 Solid Snake Solid Snake is a fictional character and one of the main protagonists of the video game series Metal Gear by Hideo Kojima. He is a legendary soldier cloned from Big Boss's DNA, who is sent to infiltrate and investigate the titular weapons in an effort to stop a potential war.

Solid Snake is just the best. I cared the most about his story mainly because I started the story with him. He also has the best support group with Otacon, Campbell, Mei Ling, Meryl, Naomi, Raiden and the list goes on. Big Boss has Miller in Peace Walker and Phantom Pain. His support group kinda sucks in Snake Eater. The only ones I cared about were Zero and Eva. Miller is his best supporter and he's not even in 3. Huey is no comparison to Otacon. And Revolver being in Phantom Pain felt kind of weird. Solid Snake has also defeated Big Boss a couple times. Solid Snake is the best!

2 Big Boss

Got to give it to Big Boss, he's definitely the best. There's quite a few things that make him better than Solid Snake. For one he's a leader, Snake is a follower/mercenary, although he does later fight for a cause he believes in. Big Boss invented CQC, alongside the Boss, and he used it better than Snake ever could. Big Boss was much better at being stealthy, I mean Snake can see what everyone else sees, but he's still gotten found before. Big Boss had a much more sad and personnel story, and it really makes you feel. Overall I'd say he's much better than Snake, in fact, Snake isn't even my number 2

3 The Boss

The Boss is/was the most legendary war hero and she truly expressed her beliefs when she died for a country she didn't completely trust. But that was the order; that was her mission. Big Boss would be nothing without The Boss, and Solid and Liquid would be nothing without either of them. It's also pretty cool that her dad was a founding member of the patriots. War hero, honor, sacrifice, love. Is that about enough?

Aside from Big Boss himself, The Boss has the best characterization in the entire franchise and the biggest influence on the 20th century. Her charismatic demeanor inspired loyalty to everyone that would listen to her, and her morals created a fervor so powerful, its misrepresentation (The Patriots) almost ruined the world.

4 Raiden Raiden (Formerly Jack) is a fictional character and a prominent protagonist in the Metal Gear series by Hideo Kojima, being the main hero of Metal Gear Solid II (as a Foxhound soldier) and Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance (As a modified cyborg).

Raiden is a very moral character, and this makes him one of the most likable characters in MGS. He was kind of lame in MGS2, but he redeemed himself in 4 and soared to new heights in Rising.

Charismatic and in the last MGR cyber-body upgrade has become by the far the strongest Metal Gear character ever.

New game on the way. Could beat Revolver any day.

5 Revolver Ocelot Revolver "Shalashaska" Ocelot is a recurring fictional character in Konami's Metal Gear video game series. Considered an anti-hero of the series, he takes on a variety of roles: a major nemesis to Solid Snake, a friendly rival to Naked Snake, the right-hand man of Liquid Snake and Solidus Snake, and... read more

Possibly the best recognized villain in gaming, never mind this entire series.

Watch him gunspinning and you'll see why every argument is invalid.

6 Liquid Snake

Best villain of the series. Hated to see him bite the dust and then fuse with Ocelot

The evil twin of Solid Snake, even feared by the patriots.

8 Otacon

Where would snake be without Otacon reminding him what to do?

He is the best comic relief character ever.

9 Grey Fox

HE was a great antihero, one minute he's trying to kill snake then he's saving him. Also his suit is way cooler than raiden's.

He's an invisible robot/ninja... enough said

10 Steven Armstrong

He is the most funniest, badass yet surprising complex villain in the whole franchise.

The Contenders
11 Psycho Mantis
12 Kazuhira Miller

I hate kaz, he's such a jerk in MGS5, he tortures people just because he doesn't like them or because he personally doesn't trust them, yet everyone else does. He is useless at doing anything and he seems to constantly question big boss' descisions. He just made me want to CQC him into a coma.

Kaz is awesome. In PW he was cool and in PP he became an ass, but in a really badass way. SPOILER FOR MGS1 Sadly he dies off-screen sometime before Shadow Moses instead of the battlefield

13 Sunny Emmerich
14 Venom Snake

Venom snake made Big Boss the legend he is. In fact, he may even be a better soldier than big boss ever was.

If anything, Venom and Big Boss should be numerically near each other.

He is also Big Boss. Venom Snake is pretty much an avatar player character. Through him you became our own Big Boss and forged your own legend.

Vote him because his good guy, his truly care about his soldiers, his one of the kind, his not suppose to be die as a (villain )...

15 Volgin

The most evil character in the series, he was very entertaining in my opinion

16 Solidus Snake

He shared a lot of similarities with Big Boss and he fought and died for what he believed in.

17 Paz
18 The Sorrow
19 Quiet
20 The End

The end is the best part of the game in Snake Eater.. the most intense sniper showdown...

21 Meryl
22 Sniper Wolf
23 Jetstream Sam
24 Vamp
25 Punished "Venom" Snake

Think about it: He's Big Boss, and then some. He fooled the entire world, and even the Patriots into thinking he was Big Boss, and he could probably even beat Big Boss in 1 on 1 combat. Also, if it weren't for his Diamond Dogs, Outer Heaven wouldn't have been as big as it was.
