Newly revealed DD figure wears a sneaking suit and is armed to the teeth

Kojima has revealed yet another MGSV figure, once again made by Play Arts. Although it’s still in the checking phase, Hideo shared two pictures on Twitter. This time, Snake’s wolf companion DD gets the figure treatment. Wearing not only his eyepatch but also a sneaking suit, and clenching a knife between its teeth, DD looks ready for battle.



“Here’s prototype of DD geared up in sneaking suits by PlayArts KAI. Still in checking phase.”


This probably means players will be able to dress DD in different outfits in the game as well, including this sneaking suit. We know we’ll be able to ‘upgrade’ the horse, so why not DD as well? Also, the knife in its mouth could be a reference to the famous FOXHOUND logo.

    Is this a thing in the game? Research DD gear?!

    “Boss, you want us to research what?!”
    “I want two machine guns on DD’s back, a weapon to surpass Metal Gear!”

    • Kenny Armour

      i read that in david hayter snake voice… then i got sad.

    • You can research stuff for your horse, so probably for DD as well.

      • Mr.Pony

        But it is essentially protective stuff for the storms and saddlebags, no one was expecting to see DD carrying a knife in a sneaking suit. Although i would love if Kojima went full 80’s action movie on the silly things, even if it was like a radio conversation of Big Boss giving the idea of strapping a gun to DD or the horse.

      “R&D! A smaller cardboard box for DD! STAT!”

    • Plissken

      “Kaz, you mean to tell me that not only do we have cardboard box tanks, but now we can develop sneaking suits for animals? I knew we had the best R&D team, but this is the icing on the cake!”

    I want a fox for buddie

    • JonDoe

      Gray Fox…? lol

  • Sn4ke_911

    DD, try to remember some of the basics of CQC…

    • Kol Leqejza

      dude, u’ve killed me! 😀

      • MichaelPayneV

        Doggy Style C.Q.C.

        How about now?

    • Gatsu

      XD omg

    • I wonder what a conversation between DD and the horse would be like

      • Vegas

        DD: “I have a knife, what do you got for action?”
        DH: “Both my eyes”
        Snake: “TURN DOWN FOR WHAT OOOOOH!!!!”

        • Mini gear

          The bosses horse BH: DH, you’ve always had clear eyes.- if DH ever gets an eyepatch too

          • Vegas

            In my conversation, DH stands for Diamond Horse xD what does your DH means?

  • Mini gear

    “Armed to the teeth” I like the pun there, now I know dd is very fun to bring

  • Mini gear

    Now I just need to tape a RPGs to his back

    • Gatsu

      Lol yeah that sounds like a great plan :).

  • “Boss…I’m already a FoxHound…”

    Just can’t wait anymore to play MGSVTPP so…

  • Bożydar Mazur

    Looks like my doge nickname is finally relevant. Big Paws.

  • Gatsu

    Woah O__O that is so cool! Imagine customizing DD like this in TPP :D, I also can’t wait to see how my doggy fights battles with me or sneaks into enemy territory. :D:D

    • Mini gear

      Cardboard box for dd would be amazing

    • kirtanloorii

      Too bad there is no survival mode in TPP. “DD! Find me a chicken!”

  • Holy fiddles..imagine this in MGO3.

  • Chem

    it would be amazing having DD as a buddy and then send him to sneak behind de guards and stealthy kill them, just like the DLC of Bladewolf y MGR

  • Hm, so it wasn’t a FOX, but a wolf! I freaking knew it! Hahaha (just kidding)
    Well, i think japanesse people use Okami as a word to mean wolf and fox, the spirit of the forest.

    Have a nice day 🙂

    • Jak

      Kitsune means fox and Okami means wolf.

  • Tong Ninja

    Since the horse and D.D can be customised (really loving the scope of the game so far! :D), I wonder if Quiet can as well?? haha

    • Javier

      We have to put some clothes on her

  • LegendarySnake51

    So good! Diamond Dogs and after FOXHOUND!

  • invader_skoodge

    D.D. is so awesome. I bet he’s going to be kicking all kinds of butt. Funny thing from the preview tweets is I think someone mentioned that DD is not the only dog that can be recruited which is interesting…..

    Oh a little *OFF TOPIC**

    I signed up for the Playstation Experience and scored a ticket to go. I’m so exited because those ran out very quickly.

    • Have fun! Too bad this is only in the US, and the PlayStation conference is at a really inconvenient time in Europe…

      • invader_skoodge

        Thanks, I’ll be sure to share pics of that day.

  • Automata Snake

    Maybe DD will lose his left front leg in combat also and he’ll get a red prosthetic puppy arm? Why not?

    • Mini gear

      the feels woould hurt too much

      • korruption

        I’m gonna go on a prosthetic limb and advise that anyone who is faint of heart, has any empathy or sympathy in them, or has a weak stomach should shed those traits before the game releases, as what you’ll encounter will prove too much otherwise. XD

        • MichaelPayneV


  • BlackLesnar

    I hope DD doesn’t cost $100 like the recent play arts.

    • Jak

      Given that Red XIII costs $100…

  • Covert Gamer

    DD has Sif written all over him.

    • MichaelPayneV

      Sif has Fox Hound written all over him.

      Take that!

  • Venom_Sina

    Hey guys.How are you?Take a look at this.It’s an interesting article:

  • Mini gear

    This came in today ^_^

    • PsychoMantis18

      Sweet. Can you please tell me what issue that is? I’d like to get me a MGSV PS4 decal

      • PsychoMantis18


        • Mini gear

          Yep, was black ops 3 based one, only got it for decal

    • Gatsu

      OMG that is soooooooooooooo sexy, can I still get it if I buy the Black Ops issue Mini :O !? If so I will order it asap !!!

  • Saxon McMichael

    If I were rich I’d buy every single figure

  • Looking DD a couple of pictures “reappeared” in my mind for different reasons…

    Where’s Nuke ?

    Did he survived after the XOF attack jumping inside one of the MSF’s choppers ?

    “Rescue Nuke the white Ninjacat” will be one of the MOST IMPORTANT mission in MGSVTPP ?

    I’m really worried about him since last year… I hope he’ll be fine and than he’ll wouldn’t have too much “troubles” with DD, the Horse and the other animals inside the Mother Base cause he’s the last real witness of Paz’s true essence…

    More “possible Nuke gears” posts please… XD

    About the first pic, another two “similar” quotes can be hearded from The Boss’ voice inside the Peace Walker I.A. in that epic scene and I’m guessing from really long time how they’ll be all extremely important for the MGSVTPP storyline…

    • No Place For Hayter

      I’m going to be honest and say despite hearing Paz’s dairy quite a few times I completely forgot about Nuke. My best guess is we won’t see him, it would be a welcome surprise, but we are probably not going to see some important characters from PW so my hopes aren’t high for Nuke.

      • Just look closely into his eyes… seems too badass to be “played” by Skull Face’s unit so easily…

        He’s a Fiddler instead… 😉

        I can’t wait to play a special Nuke themed Zadornov’s style mission series inside my gigantic Mother Base like in Peace Walker:

        Miller: “Where the hell Nuke gone this time!? I’m sick of him and his “meows”!!!

        What if we can carry Nuke with us on a mission in order to gather crucial info from a dialog between friendly and foe soldiers, too amused by his cuteness for suspect something, thanks to a microphone (one of the possible customizable items…) on his collar…?

        If there’s someone who can do it, it’s him… XD

        What if we can take control on the animals directly like if they’re MSF’S soldiers in Peace Walker ?

        I can go on for hours… O_O


        Never underestimate the power of a white Ninjacat…

        • Dr. Miles Manners

          No, Nuke died! He fell into some helicopter’s blades while trying to avoid the destruction of MSF. And then he drowned.

  • MichaelPayneV

    “…DD perform Doggy Style C.Q.C. (background music stops) O.K. that sounded better in my head!”

    LMAO, THIS is one of the reasons we all love Yong (No Homo tough) he has that Humor, he deserved to be called to the Preview event, DAMN IT!

  • hunner

    Am i the only 1 scared to use quiet or DD in a mission since they can get killed off at any time?

  • Nekkedsnake


  • PrinceHeir


    Man i have a feeling DD would have appeared in the MSX Remakes, but since Konami happened this is probably the only entry will see him 😐

    Can’t wait to customize DD though!

  • kirtanloorii
    • MichaelPayneV

      If i could, i would give her some “Kendrick Lamar” Via The Codec to save her ears from JB!

      • Le Guy who drowned quiet

        what is this pic.cant see it

        • MichaelPayneV

          What pic?

        • kirtanloorii

          • Le Guy who drowned quiet

    Good day Metal Gear Informer. I’m very excited to see DD as part of my MGS collection. Looking forward to see this item with paint. Like the Ocelot prototype, the painted version looked a lot better. Giving justice to the superb sculpture. I just hope, the guys at PlayArts and Mr Hideo Kojima would consider giving DD the right “Paws”. I loved the sneaking suit for DD, but something is off with a wolf wearing sneaking shoes, doesn’t look menacing and tough for Big Boss’ image as the Legendary Soldier. Looking forward to MGTPP release! Thanks and more power to Metal Gear Informer.
