MGS5: The Phantom Pain – Are Liquid And Solid Snake In The Game?

tpg - While it has confirmed that the story of MGS5 will be a prequel that revolves around Big Boss, a few things stuck out during the latest trailer released at this year's E3 that points to Liquid and Solid Snake being in the game. (Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain, PS4, Xbox One)

I highly doubt that kid is Liquid. Liquid hair is originally brown, like his brother. Besides, Liquid was living most of his youth in the U.K until his later captivity in Iraq. His blonde hair was probably a means to easily disguise himself as Miller in order to fool Solid.

The kid that Big Boss is choking looks to be Chico. Possibly, another betrayal towards the MSF.

I heard news of this betrayal in the the very first trailer of Ground Zeroes so you do bring up some great points.

I thought it was Frank Jaeger a.k.a Grey Fox to those who are not familiar with his real name.

*Spoiler*
I hope MGSV unfolds the Outer Heaven event and how Solid Snake confronted and presumably killed both Frank and Big Boss.

to me, this is the only thing left in the story that needs to be experienced.

Well it's getting to that point, the outer heaven uprising happens in 1995. The phantom pain takes place in 1984. I think at the end of the game big boss is going to make the transition to become a villain.

As for the kid in the trailer, I think it really is liquid:

See what I did there? Lol

"Liquid hair is originally brown, like his brother."

And it got bleached due to being exposed to sun for way too long according to the story. It's not far fetched to think that he's Liquid. Especially when the trailer itself says "a youth who curses his fate". It fits perfectly with what Liquid says in Metal Gear Solid, right before the hand to hand fight starts on top of Metal Gear Rex.

The kid Snake's "choking" is obviously Chico. Although I don't think he's killing him but rather trying to knock him out so that he can get him out of there. The reason for that could be because he's not in the right state of mind and can do something to compromise the mission (as seen in the Ground Zeroes trailer with him unplugging a headphone out of a hole in his chest). He's also seen later when they're trying to extract a "package" from Paz's guts, trying to restrain her/slow down the blood flow by applying pressure.

Wouldn't Chico be too old to be that kid in 1984? If Snake was born in 1972, this would put him, and Liquid, at about 12 years old; which is about how old the kid is. Chico was born in 1962, so unless he still looks like a 12 year old boy at age 22, it can't be him.

No, because Ground Zeroes doesn't start in 1984. The Phantom Pain does.

good call. Forgot about that.
