In Commando, Colonel John Matrix (Arnold Schwarzenegger) is a retired Delta Force operator who’s brought back when mercenaries kidnap his daughter, and it’s not long before Matrix himself is abducted. It turns out the mercenaries are made up of members of his former unit who have been decommissioned for enjoying the killing too much, led by a former South American dictator who wishes to carry out a political assassination and kickstart a military coup.
In Metal Gear Solid, Big Boss is also known as Naked Snake, Punished Snake, Venom Snake, or Snake. He’s been a covert operative, decorated war hero, and rogue mercenary, making his allegiances as hard to keep track of as his codenames.
In the Metal Gear Solid series, Solid Snake is special ops agent who infiltrates enemy installations and disrupts their operations. When he’s vastly outnumbered, he’ll do whatever it takes to remain stealthy, and isn’t above camping out in a cardboard box.
