Metal Gear Countdown: Top 5 Most Iconic Snake Quotes

With its rich history of more than 25 years, the Metal Gear series always presents a balance between new inventions and repeating elements. One such returning element entails the repetition of certain iconic phrases. What are the most recognizable quotes, that players will immediately relate to the famous videogame hero?

The words that follow are spoken by either ‘incarnation’ of Snake, be it Solid Snake or Big Boss. They are lines that are instantly recognized by Metal Gear fans, and probably also by people who aren’t as familiar with the games.

Here are the five phrases you can’t hear without a gravely voice anymore. (Culture, Metal Gear Series, Metal Gear Solid, Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons Of Liberty, Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater, Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots, PS2, PS3, Retro, Xbox 360)

"I'm no hero. Never was..."
Nyxus  +   965d ago
Yeah, that one could fit in the list as well. Although I associate it more with MGS4 specifically than the series in general (that goes for number 5 on my list as well though).

"The La Ley Lu Ley Lo"

My favourite quote which isn't included in the article is in MGS 1 were Snake says to Octacon just before the hind battle: 'I've got to go and swat a noisy fly'

Yeah, I like that one as well. :) Although this article is more about iconic quotes than favorites. But good one!

"Hmmm"

Not snake,
"SNAAAAAKKKKKEEEE
Nyxus  +   965d ago
I only chose quotes spoken by Snake himself. ;)
HarryMasonHerpderp  +   965d ago
Love Metal Gear.
This is a funny article, love how Snake keeps his quotes short and simple and to the point.
Just to add Snake also says "Kept you waiting, huh?" at the end of the installing screen when you press start to continue in MGS4. Always made me chuckle to myself that did lol.

Snake also says "kept you waiting huh?" in other Metal Gear games like MGS 2.

Metal Gear is my favorite single player game series of all time.
HarryMasonHerpderp  +   965d ago
Yeah I know I'm a huge MGS fan too, love all of the games. Which is your favourite Metal Gear Solid? mine would have to be the first game.

Metal Gear !

"Colonel that ninja was Gray Fox!"
MrAnderson  +   965d ago
This only goes to show he has no good quotes.

Howveer, the colonel "snake what happened? snake...SNAKE!?!?!?"

and that's especially good when you kill Meryl and you get

"snake what happened? snake...SNAKE!?!?!?" snake:"....MERYL..."

LOL.

mr freeze on the other hand, now there's a guy with quotes.
Nyxus  +   965d ago
That's not true, he has plenty of good quotes. They aren't mentioned here, because this is not a top 5 'best quotes', but 'most iconic quotes'.
B00M  +   965d ago
My favourite quote is from MGS1, not by Snake tho.

Revolver Ocelot "I love to reload during a battle. Theres nothing like the feeling of slamming a long silver bullet into a well greased chamber..."

Always gets me laughing!

Naked Snake to ocelot:

You ejected the first bullet by hand, didn't ya? I see what you were trying to do, but testing a technique you only heard about in the middle of the battle wasn't very smart, you were asking to have your gun jam on you. Besides, i don't think you're cut out for automatics in the first place, you tend to twist your elbow to absorb the recoil, that's more of a revolver technique

Like that one! Didn't remember it until watching that video. Cheers. Still don't quite understand what Snake is on about though, about ejecting the first bullet by hand and therefore making the gun jam?
DoctorNefarious123  +   965d ago
I think Ocelot was trying to manually eject the bullet in the chamber by pulling the slide which caused the bullet to jam and Snake says not a good idea to test techniques in the middle of a battle that you have only heard of.
