3. Solid Snake (Metal Gear series) vs. Crimson Viper (Street Fighter series)
Our Fighters: Solid Snake is a member of FOXHOUND, and a covert operative who is known as “The Man who makes the Impossible Possible”. Solid Snake, or otherwise known as “David”, or “Snake” is a clone of the legendary soldier “Big Boss”. With his experience with the Green Berets, Special Forces, an IQ of 180, and being fluent in six languages. Snake’s adventures involve him defeating Metal Gears, giant bipedal nuclear tanks. Snake defeats these Metal Gears with a wide assortment of guns and explosives, and help from his tech buddy, Otacon. Once he’s rapidly aged by his FOXDIE virus, he is then equipped with a hand device called and the Solid Eye, which gives him enhanced vision for stealth. It allows him to see a Mach 20 projectile and see infrared.Snake is also fluent in Close Quarters Combat, knife and gun combat, and can communicate with Otacon and teammates with the Codec. Being a covert operative, Snake has accomplished quite a lot in his missions, such as being able to absorb tons of force from a rail gun, lifting a military jeep, and literally punching his way out of a jail cell. Snake has dodged a tank shell, survives a 300-foot fall from a Metal Gear, outswims it, and ran and swam for miles without running out of breath. Snake has also taken three slashes from a stun knife and remained ok (A single slash of a stun knife could incapacitate a typical soldier), and surviving five minutes in a microwave room (The amount of microwaves being emitted would vaporize a normal human on contact).
Snake’s weaknesses include PTSD, and some devices he uses can be jammed, Snake’s genetics cause him to rapidly age after the age of 40, which decreases his strength and agility.
Crimson Viper, also known as “Maya” works for the CIA as a double agent for S.I.N. attempting to discover S.I.N.’s connection to Shadaloo, uncover data from the BLECE Project by S.I.N., and eliminate Seth, her boss in S.I.N. Viper has battled Chun-Li, Cammy White, M. Bison, and Seth. Eventually, Seth recognizes her as a CIA agent and Viper is forced to kill him. While much of her background is classified and surrounded in mystery, it is known she is a single mother to her daughter Lauren. Crimson Viper battles with the S.I.N. Battle Suit, which includes metal knuckles that can be electrically charged to fight with lightning attacks, sending shockwaves into the ground, and the boots of the suit hold jets she can use to fly and deliver fiery kicks. As an agent of the CIA, she has the training as such to be an agent, such as judo and krav maga. Viper does have plenty of weaknesses though; her win/loss record is spotty at best, with plenty of losses and few wins. She is also a rush down character: she requires close range combat to be effective; otherwise she is very limited in combat options at long range.
Why are they Fighting: Both fighters are secret agents and are very powerful in combat, so we’ll see which one wins in a no-holds barred fight
Predicted Winner: Solid Snake outclasses Crimson Viper in practically every way. From the better training, better feats, and better equipment, Snake dominates the fight. Even if Crimson Viper were to get in close range, Snake can tank most of her attacks, and dish out his own just as well.
