Did You Know?
The character of "The End" (as well as the concept of The Boss being Naked Snake's mentor) was based on a scrapped member of Dead Cell from Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty called Old Boy (sometimes referred as Oldman). Old Boy (according to the MGS2 gameplan) was a 100-year old former Nazi general who wielded a Panzerfaust as his weapon of choice and was also a mentor to several soldiers, including Big Boss himself. His character was written out of the Metal Gear Solid 2 script because they could not find a way to fit it into the story. See more
