Metal Gear D

From The Codex


Metal Gear D is the fourth Metal Gear being predated by Metal Gear ZEKE, Metal Gear Sahelanthropus, and its prototype TX-55 Metal Gear. After the Outer Heaven Uprising, Dr. Drago Pettrovich Madnar was dismissed by the western world as a radical mad man and was shut out by the scientific community. With no place to go, Madnar willing joined Zanzibar Land and helped them create the new Metal Gear. After its creation, Metal Gear D was used to attack several nuclear disposal sites and other neighboring countries, allowing Zanzibar Land steal nuclear weapons from said areas along with kidnapping Dr. Kio Marv. With Zanzibar Land now being the only country with nuclear weapons, the western world yet again sent Solid Snake to stop the conflict. During his time in Zanzibar Land, Gray Fox would use Metal Gear D to try and stop Snake from rescuing Dr. Marv multiple times, with Snake eventually fighting Gray Fox and destroying Metal Gear D once and for all.

Notable Techniques

None Notable.


Weaknesses: Its legs have thinner armor than the rest of its body.

Note: The main Metal Gear cast are not assumed to scale to the potency of any of the Metal Gears or other types of armored vehicles, from feats like Gray Fox and Liquid Snake being able to tank the destruction of Metal Gears, as they have been shown to be consistently far weaker than them. Big Boss and Volgin would have been killed by a C3 explosion, which was unable to damage the Shagohod, which is a armored vehicle from 1964, which should be weaker than all of its successors. Big Boss using his strongest weapons was unable to harm the Shagohod without attacking its weak point. Both Big Boss and The Boss would have been killed by the bombs from the MiG planes, which should comparable to the C3 used on the Shagohod. AI weapons such as the Cocoon can nearly one-shot Big Boss with a single attack, along with Miller stating Big Boss can't harm the various armored vehicles in the game without lethal weaponry. Attacks that are able to one-shot Venom Snake, won't one-shot Metal Gear Sahelanthropus. Metal Gear Sahelanthropus' railgun does massive damage to Venom Snake, even when using protective gear like the Battle Dress. Solid Snake needed to use his strongest weapons to attack weak points in order defeat TX-55 Metal Gear. Solid Snake would later do the same when fighting Metal Gear D. Liquid Snake stated that Solid Snake's stringer missiles would kill both him and an injured Gray Fox, with said missiles being unable to harm the armor of Metal Gear REX. Metal Gear REX was able to easily overpower Gray Fox and crushed him to death with a stomp. Liquid Snake tanking Metal Gear REX's destruction is likely due to how he was in its protective cockpit, as even a distance the explosion was able to knock out Solid Snake. Metal Gear RAY, a Metal Gear made to defeat Metal Gears like Metal Gear REX, was able to easily knock out Solid Snake with a single indirect hit. Gekkos, bipedal tanks that are easily destroyed by Metal Gear REX, can one-shot Old Snake.
