Is Liquid Snake the main protagonist of The Phantom Pain/Metal Gear Solid 5?

STFUandPLAY's Romudeth writes:

"As to whom we’re seeing on screen; I have a theory. I was talking to a friend and he’s convinced me that this character is non-other than Liquid Snake.

The theory that this new character is Liquid could be dismissed because the arm he’s missing is his left one and not the right. However, we have to keep in mind that “an arm” was recovered. It was never specified as to which one."

Update:

Original Title:

Is The Phantom Pain Really Metal Gear Solid 5? Is That Liquid Snake?

You forgot the biggest clue of them all, the fact that the character's hair looks lighter than Snake's and Big Boss, hinting at Liquid, although Solidus also has light hair. That said, Liquid possibly dyed his hair that colour in MGS, I can't recall.

The age of the character would fit Liquid also, and the British flag in the hospital also some hint seeing as Liquid has ties to the UK.

"You've been in a coma for quite some time".

What's interesting is could this be the true story of what happened to Liquid Snake post Shadow Moses and could it be that Liquid is suffering phantom pain from who he is cloned from... Big Boss, hence some of the visions in the trailer.

Just to add. I thought this was actually a nightmare mini game for MGS V developed by a different studio.

Thanks for those details man. You're totally right. I updated the editorial and gave you a shout out.

BTW I think the title is supposed to mean the phantom pain of his missing limb. This is something that amputees always talk about.

Liquid is missing the right arm so NO.

Read the article Heavenly King.

Yea it could be a mini game or something like that cause Kojima likes to add unique funny and pretty entertaining stuff in his games, like the beginning of MGS4 where you watch TV and stuff.

Heavenly King1322d ago

Gets your facts straight dude. Liquid is missing the right arm. NOT THE LEFT ONE.

And the image is not inverted because when they approach the elevator,you can see that the numbers above it are normal, and the protagonist still has the prosthetic left arm.

We all know that the arms are different, but how can you even be sure the character even has a missing arm when the whole scene could be a dream. It's possible the missing arm is a clue and hint towards Liquid. I agree the evidence more supports Big Boss as the character, but then we were also led to believe we'd be playing MGS 2 entirely as Solid Snake.

That would be an awesome twist!

andibandit1322d ago

Id prefer gaseous snake or evaporating snake

Ace_Pheonix1322d ago

**** NO! That's the dumbest thing I've ever heard. How are people taking the fact that Ocelot took dead Liquids arm and turning it into this? It would be more plausible for it to be Ocelot, but it isn't. It's so very obviously Big Boss, you'd have to be completely ignorant of the series to think anything else.

Right off the bat it can't be Liquid Snake, only Solid Snake resembles Big Boss.

This game not MGS5 and not next-gen visuals.

The answer is pretty obvious, no f'ing around with is that this and what if that, it's pretty simple:

The 'Phantom pain' is a chapter in MGS5 as in actually leading to a boss battle ie the specter you see floating around. The boss specialises in psychological tricks and the level is a product of it. Quite frankly I'm shaking my head at why this hasn't been suggested when a big deal of Metal Gear involves some sort of boss like that.
