Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater

  • The pain... the pain... the pain! The pain!!
    • Who: The Pain
  • The time has come for a younger generation to rise. I've been wandering for more than a century and now my journey comes to a close. What a splendid way... to end it all. I have no regrets... I can return to the forest at last.
    • Who: The End
  • The fear! The fear!! I see it! The fear!
    • Who: The Fear
  • Boss... this is the end of the Cobras. You've got to live on. You're the only one left. I'm off, to join The Sorrow. Behold the flames of Fury. The fires of hell will purge me clean. I can see it. Mission Control, do you read me? I'm coming home. I see the earth!
    • Who: The Fury
  • Shoot me! You want to finish your mission, don't you? Then... you'll have to shoot me. The spirit of the warrior... will always be with you. Don't be sad... we'll meet again someday.

    • Note: Was said in response to a storm beginning. He was then struck by a bolt of lighting, killing him.
  • There's only room for one Boss... and one Snake...

Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots

  • You and the beasts are no different...scorched shadows born to the world. When a beast steps into the light...unless the light is put out...the shadows cannot be erased. So long as there is light...there is shadow. To return everything to normal...the light must be extinguished. And when that happens...you...will be...too.
  • I can...die?
    • Who: Vamp

  • I am Liquid's doppleganger. And you are his. Just...like your father...you're pretty good...
  • This is good...isn't it?
    • Who: Big Boss
    • Note: Character is dying as a result of the new FOXDIE virus. These last words could be interpreted to mean many things. The most obvious would be a commentary on the reunion and reconciliation between father and son. However, he may also have been referring to the end of the Patriots' reign. Or, though far less likely, the old man may simply have been attempting small talk over the quality of the cigar he shared with his son during his final few moments of life.
