(Redirected from Raiden (Metal Gear))

Raiden is the protagonist of Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty and Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance.

Starting out as an agent for the special operations unit FOXHOUND, he later starts working as a mercenary for Maverick Security outfitted with a cybernetic exoskeleton and high frequency blade.

Tournament History[edit]

Due to the general popularity of the Metal Gear franchise on the board, and with Raiden being the protagonist of the beloved spin-off Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance, he became a notable figure in the tournaments. He first appeared in 2020, where he was a high seed and proceeded to destroy his competition, winning most of his matches with good margins, including a match against his canonical rival, Jetstream Sam, and making it all the way to the finals before being defeated by fellow action game protagonist Dante.

2022 would be notable for Raiden because due to a new rule that reduces the amount of characters from a winning series that can qualify down to two, Raiden was excluded from participating. This was a shock to many with the character being so popular and having been a finalist two years prior.

2023 was better for Raiden, as he was able to qualify again and became notable in the threads because of an anon writing him as a detective that was investigating a rape case related to fellow 2020 Elite Eight member Scout, which led to him uncovering a tournament-wide conspiracy involving Keiichi Maebara, Nyarlathotep, and Gary Miller, among others, all the while trying to be stopped by Minato Kageaki. Raiden also became a bodyguard to mafioso Charles, which turned tragic as the two ended up in a match against each other in round 3. He eventually fell in round 4 to fellow Metal Gear character Solid Snake, in an incredibly close match.

Raiden will next be eligible for King of /v/ 2024.
