Solid Snake, real name David, also known as Old Snake, and formerly known as Iroquois Pliskin, or simply Snake, was a former spy, special operations soldier, and mercenary. Possessing an IQ of 180 and fluent in six languages, he was known as "the Man Who Makes the Impossible Possible" and his exploits made him into a living legend among the military black ops.

A product of the Les Enfants Terribles project, Snake was a clone of world renowned soldier Big Boss, along with his brothers Liquid Snake and Solidus Snake. Initially a Green Beret, Snake was later inducted into High-Tech Special Forces Unit FOXHOUND in the mid 1990s while it was commanded by Big Boss. Repeatedly tasked with disarming and destroying the latest incarnation of Metal Gear, a bipedal nuclear weapon-armed tank, Snake would thrice avert potential nuclear catastrophe, becoming a famed war hero.

- : Hand Grenade - Snake pulls out a grenade and unpins it. The grenade can be held for up to 3 seconds before it detonates, which can be "cooked" by holding the special button as soon as he takes out a grenade. The distance Snake throws the grenade can be controlled by pressing either forward, backward, or pressing no direction at all. Snake can throw up to two grenades at a time. (2-4% (throw), 12% (explosion))

> : Remote Missile-  Snake takes out a Nikita and fires a remote-controlled missile. The missile can be controlled with the control stick and be cancelled out by pressing the shield button. (7% (missile early/ dropped), 14% (missile))

^ : Cypher -  Snake grabs onto the flying reconnaissance camera slowly hovers upwards. One can cancel the move early by performing any attack (excluding the up special), pressing down, or by airdodging, upon which the Cypher will become an upward projectile. (6% (camera))

v : C4 -  Snake bends down a plants a C4 on the ground where he is standing, drops one when used in the air, or sticks one towards a wall if he is standing near one. By using the move a second time, he takes out a remote and presses the button, detonating the explosive. If Snake is standing near an opponent, he can attach the C4 directly onto them, which acts like a Gooey Bomb. (17% (explosion))

F : Grenade Launcher -  Snake leaps off the stage and grabs onto a rope ladder of a helicopter, shooting up to twelve grenades from the foreground. After firing six shots, Snake reloads another six shots. If no rounds are fired within a few seconds, Snake will automatically shoot a grenade towards the crosshair. (18% (grenade))
