'''Metal Gear REX''' is a prototype Metal Gear model who made his first appearance in ''Metal Gear Solid'' for the PlayStation and his remake, ''Metal Gear Solid: The Twin Snakes'' for the [[GameCube]]. Metal Gear REX was designed by [[Otacon|Hal "Otacon" Emmerich]] who had been lead to believe by his superiors that he was designing a defensive weapon. Amongst most of its typical weaponry - two Vulcan gatling guns, a missle launcher, and a laser - REX has a giant rail gun which uses magnetic power to launch nuclear warheads a great distance without the need for propulsion. This fearsome machine was piloted by Liquid Snake, Solid Snake's genetic brother. After REX was destroyed in MGS1, Revolver Ocelot sold the Metal Gear REX blueprints on the black market, allowing buyers all over the world to create their own Metal Gear REX. This necessitated the development of [[Metal Gear RAY]], an anti-Metal Gear that would combat the various REX models. The repaired, original REX also appears in ''Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Partiots'', with [[Snake]] piloting it into battle against the original RAY.
