Snake's enemy in MGSV is ‘probably who you think it is’

When asked by a journalist (during an E3 2013 interview) who Snake is up against in Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain, Kojima said:

“I can’t say who it is. But it’s probably exactly who you think it is.”


Of course, this can mean a lot of things. He could be talking about Skull Face, which could mean he is an existing character from the Metal Gear universe. But he could also be talking about an enemy we haven’t seen yet, behind the scenes, who could very well be Zero (or Cipher as he’s called by Paz and Miller).

    Common sense tells me Zero

    • Nyxus

      Yes, Zero is pretty much a given, from the trailer it seems like Kaz intends to take revenge on him. I’m not sure if that’s the person Kojima is talking about here, but he probably is.

    i really can’t believe we haven’t seen Zero in action since Portable Ops(and he was still good terms with Naked Snake)

    i mean not even Peace Walker aside from the ending.

    i just hope he does show up this time and explain why he disagrees with Big Boss and why he thinks this is the way to carry The Boss’s will.

    still such a shame it should have been Gene that rival to Big Boss instead of Zero(makes no sense)

    and please put Gray Fox(Null), Naomi(child), Sniper Wolf, Psycho Mantis in some other way.

    I actually think his biggest enemy in this game is going to actually become himself.

  • Jon

    It’s Cipher. Cypher is that flying surveillance camera thing.

    • Nyxus

      You’re right.

  • Viper

    Who I think is “Gene” in Portable Ops or “Skull face” in MGSV

  • Fredy Carius

    Metal… Gear? (now in Kiefer Sutherland’s voice) hahaha jk

  • Joseph

    Cipher took away everything from Big Boss, clearly making him the #1 suspect

  • Para4oX

    It’s Snake, Punished Snake.

  • Freesun4

    The thing is, what is Cipher doing in the East?

  • Rndm Snake

    according to Peace Walker ending, ” the times “

  • Wondering if he meant Snake? :O
