3 reasons why Raiden is just as badass as Solid Snake writes:

"Raiden returned in MGS4 with a makeover, kitted out in ninja clobber and wielding the sharpest sword skills known to mankind. With his imminent return in Metal Gear Rising looming, thought it was time to celebrate three reasons why Raiden is just as much of a badass as Solid Snake." (Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance, Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots, PS3, Xbox 360)

No way. With all that cyborg tech all over his body, he is isn't HALF the man Solid Snake is! It's like he's an emo and those implants are his proverbial piercings and make-up.

Solid Snake is a real man; old-school and raw to the core. The kind of man that, after saving the world, would light up a cigar and look like a BOSS (no pun intended) and Raiden would do all sorts of gymnastic stuff and pose like a model from Men's Fitness and still end up looking like a try-hard transvestite.

lets not forget Snake's more badarse attitude. Pessimistic, arrogant, humble. "I've never cared about anyone else's life. Other people just complicate my life, I don't like to get involved" MGS1 Snake was perfect

3 reasons why Raiden is just as badass as Solid Snake.

1) You are smoking crack.
2) You are taking crystal meth.
3) You are shooting heroine.

Who is as badass as Solid Snake? Answer:
No one is as badass as Solid Snake.
Kanzes  +   1013d ago
Big Boss is.
Sharius  +   1013d ago
nope, big boss too emotion compare to snake
Septic  +   1013d ago

Woot?! Emotions make you a man! Besides, the man shriveled up and looked like an onion and still managed to save the world. Heck, he crawled into a gigantic microwave to do so.

I'd say Big Boss is even more badass than Solid Snake. Solid Snake is just an enhanced clone of Big Boss, Big Boss was the real deal. That makes everything he did much more significant and badass imo

Killed the cobra unit and his mentor *all fcuking alone* in a time without technology. All he had were his knife and pistol. Cofounder of the CQC. He did all this without foxdie nano bots in him.

they only have 3, there are a million reasons why snake is cooler than raiden.
blackstrr411  +   1013d ago
Hold up. Big boss is the baddest snake. No doubt. His missions were more difficult. Raiden owned solid in mgs4

Raiden is bada$$ but comparing him to a legend is kinda not fair. With that said, I love Raiden. Hes one of the most baddest Ninjas out there.

Clearly PSU are trolling, i mean can someone be that stupid to say that raiden is as badass as Snake

But by looking at some of the above comments......

Raiden cannot be compared to Snake
it's unfair to say the least
clintagious650  +   1013d ago
Raiden is a beast but solid snake would kill him. Now u wanna bring Big Boss into the picture, Raiden wouldnt stand a chance.

Edit: Also Solidus & Liquid Snake were beasts too.

Raiden is trash, he should have been killed off from the MGS world a long time ago
