the following quotes are translated from the Japanese version and may be altered in the American/European version

Colonel: "Be careful Snake! King Bowser is there!"

Snake: "Bowser? That thing that looks like a Monster?"

Colonel: "He's the leader of the Koopa army. Watch out for his strong arms and fire breath."

Snake: "But he looks kinda slow. So he actually isn't weak?"

Colonel: "Since he is king of the turtles, there is no doubt he is thickheaded. But on the other hand, he is heavier than any other fighter. So of course he has great destructive power. Watch out so you don't get crushed."

Captain Falcon

Snake: "Hey! That's Captain Falcon, isn't it?"

Otacon: "Good eye, Snake! He's F-Zero pilot number 07!"

Snake: "You know, seeing Captain Falcon here reminds me... We should do that thing we've always wanted to try..."

Otacon: "Ohhhh yeah! That thing! Good idea! OK, ready? Go!"

Snake: "Falcon Puuuunch!!"

Otacon: "Falcon Kiiiiiiick!!"

Diddy Kong

Snake: "Otacon, there's a chimpanzee wearing a Nintendo hat."

Otacon: "That's Diddy Kong. Donkey Kong's partner. Not only is he light weight, he can use a wide range of weapons as well. He can fly using those barrel jets on his back and can shoot nuts with his peanut popgun."

Snake: "Peanuts? As in the one in the little shells? Are you serious?"

Otacon: "Wait, and heres the best part. You seem them lying on the ground after he shoots? If you pick up some of those peanuts, they'll restore you health a little."

Snake: "Hmmm.... edible ammunition huh? Times sure have changed."

Donkey Kong

Snake: "Otacon, there's a gorilla wearing a tie here. He's huge."

Otacon: "That's Donkey Kong. As you can tell, he's got strength to spare. He may be king of the jungle, but he lives in a house just like you or me. And he seems pretty smart--well, for an ape, anyway. The Donkey Kong who fought that epic battle with Mario was this guy's grandfather."

Snake: "That was a long time ago. What about this Donkey Kong? Does he get along with Mario?"

Otacon: "Nope, they're still at it. Seems like they're are always competing in something--kart racing, sports, you name it."

Snake: "A chip off the old block…"


Snake: "This is Snake..."

Slippy: "Copy Snake! This is Slippy!"

Snake: "Wha?! Who is this? What are you? Some kind of frog?"

Slippy: "Easy there, buddy! Just thought I'd hop onto the wireless and give you a holler. Dont get mad!"

Snake: "Hacked right into my channel huh?"

Slippy: "But Im not here to mess nothin' up. Don't worry."

Snake: "..."

Slippy: "Just so you know. Falco uses a blaster and a reflector that I designed, just like Fox does. But Falco likes to kick his reflector and send it flying around. Just showing off if you ask me."

Snake: "No reason a weapon can't have more than one use. In fact, Id say its versatility shows how well you designed it."

Slippy: "Hey, maybe so! I feel all fuzzy now! Thanks Snake!"

Snake: "Maybe next time we meet, you can design me a weapon....


Snake: "Colonel! That fox is fast!"

Colonel: "You're fighting Fox, eh, Snake? His full name is Fox McCloud. He's the leader of the commando-for-hire unit Star Fox. They're mostly active in a galaxy known as the Lylat System. Fox in his comrades pilot all-terrain fight crafts called Arwings. His skills in combat can turn the tide of any battle. …You seem to have a thing with foxes, don't you, Snake?"

Snake: "Don't remind me. First FOXHOUND and now this guy... I'm sick off foxes."

Colonel: "You and foxes have a long history together. You ought to be proud."


the following quotes are translated from the Japanese version and may be altered in the American/European version

Snake: "What's this thirst for blood I feel from this giant!? I can feel my skin tremble just by getting close."

Colonel: "Snake! Ganondorf is dangerous! He plans to control the world, and he has the power to do it! His name of King of Evil is definitely fitting."

Snake: "With him as an enemy, can modern weapons even beat him?"

Colonel: "Look at everyone else. They're fighting with swords and barehanded. You have guns, isn't that good enough? Spouting complaints isn't like you, Snake."

Snake: "Just thought Id ask. Ill do my duty."

Ice Climbers



the following quotes are translated from the Japanese version and may be altered in the American/European version

Snake: "There's something with large eyes walking around."

Colonel: "That's Jigglypuff."

Snake: "Jigglypuff? Isn't that a dessert."

Colonel: "Jigglypuff is a Balloon Pokémon. Its filled with air that makes you drowsy. So it has the power to make you sleep."

Snake: "Sleep? But I guess this is no ordinary sleep."

Colonel: "Although its a brief nap if you are near it a staggering energy reaction will happen. If you take that it will be an instant KO."

Snake: "So it's at her best while sleeping? This thing is over the top."

Colonel: "It's a big world, especially in Super Smash."

King Dedede

the following quotes are translated from the Japanese version and may be altered in the American/European version

Snake: "What a huge hammer..."

Colonel: "You're fighting with Dedede, Snake."

Snake: "Colonel, isn't that a penguin?"

Colonel: "He's the King of Dreamland. Self-proclaimed, though."

Snake: "He's not really a penguin, right?"

Colonel: "His hammer has unimaginable power if it hits you. The outside looks like wood, but there's actually a mechanical bearing and a jet that grows in power."

Snake: "He should have a disconnected shoulder. If he can handle it that easily..."

Colonel: "On the contrary, he swings it quite slowly. Be sure to dodge, Snake."


Otacon: "Snake! Watch out!"

Snake: "For what? That pink marshmallow?"

Otacon: "That's Kirby, also known as 'Kirby from Dream Land.' He's from another planet--in other words, an extraterrestrial. He's got powerful stomach that lets him swallow and digest anything. And he also has a 'Copy Ability' that allows him to mimic opponents, steal their moves, and use those moves against them. On top of that, he has the power to fly around the stage, so once he's got you in his sight, there's no place to run. How horrifying.."

Snake: "…Huh? Yeah, got it. I'll keep an eye out."


Snake: "Otacon, who's the guy with the sword?"

Otacon: "That's Link. He's the hero of Hyrule. That blade in his hand is called the Master Sword, also known as the 'Blade of Evil's Bane'. He also has a whole arsenal of items at his disposal--bombs and arrows, a shield, a boomerang, and a Clawshot. He's a force to be reckoned with."

Snake: "Gear is only useful when it's used at the right time and place. Just lugging a ton of it around doesn't do you any good."

Otacon: "…I, uh… I wouldn't be talking if I were you, Snake."

Snake: "What's that supposed to mean?"

Otacon: "You tell me, Mr. Utility Belt."

Snake: "…"


the following quotes are translated from the Japanese version and may be altered in the American/European version

Mei Ling: "You're fighting Lucario? Snake."

Snake: "Mei Ling, what is the purple flame coming out of the guy's hand?"

Mei Ling: "That's his aura."

Snake: "His aura?"

Mei Ling: "Something like lifeforce. Lucario controls its own aura, and that's what is shining with power. Lucario increases its aura when it takes damage, becoming stronger. So, don't let your guard down saying, 'Since I did a lot of damage to it...'."

Snake: "You're saying, 'A cornered rat is dangerous'? ... What a nuisance."

Mei Ling: "Oh? Even Snake uses proverbs occasionally. How surprising."

Snake: "It's thanks to you."

Mei Ling: "When you come back, I'll teach you plenty of Chinese proverbs."



Snake: "That mustache is..."

Colonel: "Ha. You mean the king of second bananas?"

Snake: "Hey, thats Luigi! Show him a little respect!"

Colonel: "Look at that pale skin, he's been living in his brother's shadow for too long."

Snake: "Thats a low blow, Colonel."

Colonel: "Face it Snake! Once a kid brother, always a kid brother!"

Snake: "Colonel! Whats gotten into you?!"

Colonel: "Lalilulelo Lalilulelo Lalilulelo..."

Snake: "Colonel! Snap out of it! Colonel!! Coloneeeeel!"

NOTE : The Lalilulelo is a reference to a fake Colonel Snake encounters in Metal Gear Solid 2 : Sons of Liberty.


Colonel: "Snake, you know who that is?"

Snake: "You're kidding, right? It's Mario."

Colonel: "Mario made his first appearance in 1981, and since then, he has become a worldwide phenomenon. There's probably not a single person who doesn't know Mario. He's that famous."

Snake: "Good thing I survived long enough to meet him on the field of battle, huh."

Colonel: "This is a once-in-a-lifetime chance, Snake. Now get out there and show him what you're made of. No regrets."

Snake: "Got it."


Mei Ling: "Snake, have you ever heard the saying 'Politics makes strange bedfellows'?"

Snake: "Don't tell me that's a Chinese proverb."

Mei Ling: "Err, no… It means that when the going gets tough, you might need unexpected partnership in order to succeed. Marth was a prince whose kingdom was usurped. He didn't even have an army to fight with him. But as he battled his way forward, he found new allies to fight at his side, and in the end, he was able to reunite the war-torn land of Altea."

Snake: "So he built his army from the ranks of his defeated enemies…"

Mei Ling: "Marth did his share of fighting, too. Even when he had an army, he was always alongside his men in the thick of battle. Then he was betrayed by his most trusted friends. I can't even imagine how that feels…"

Snake: "…I can."

Meta Knight

Snake: "Mei Ling there's a mysterious masked man flying around here with a sword..."

Mei Ling: "Thats Meta Knight. He's a knight from Dream Land. They say his sword swings can break the sound barrier. Whatever you do don't get caught in on of his furious barrage attacks. He also commands the Halberd, a flying battleship

Snake: "Man I've seen it. The bow looks like a mask. What kind of wiredo put his face on the bow of a ship, anyway?

Mei Ling: "Um, maybe he's a little narcissistic. Kind of like someone I know."

Snake: "Really, and who would that be?"

Mei Ling: "Use your imagination..."

Mr. Game & Watch

Snake: "Otacon, there's a guy walking around in here…and he's only got two-dimension!"

Otacon: "That's Mr. Game & Watch. He comes from a world where everything is flat. The Game and Watch was a series of portable games released by Nintendo in 1980. They were powered by large-scale integrated circuits and only had monochrome LCD displays, so character kind of looked like the numbers of a calculator. The guy you are looking at now, Mr. Game & Watch, was the character who appeared in these games."

Snake: "This is making my head hurt?."

Otacon: "Well, umm… He's… I mean… Look, just start fighting him, and I'm sure everything will make sense."

Snake: "…"


the following quotes are translated from the Japanese version and may be altered in the American/European version

Colonel: "That young boy is Ness."

Snake: "Ness?"

Colonel: "Although he's a young boy, Ness is a master at PSI."

Snake: "You mean, like Psycho Mantis ?"

Colonel: "Yes, he possesses abilities like teleportation, telekinesis, levitation and pyrokinesis."

Snake: "Oh, so does that mean I have to change the controller port? Can he use telepathy?"

Colonel: "No, not that I have heard."

Snake: "Hearing that is a relief."



Mei-Ling: "Ooh! How cuute!" (Mei Ling actually says "so cute".)

Snake: "What? The yellow thing?"

Mei-Ling: "That's Pikachu. It's a Pokémon. They're popular all over the world, you know. And it may look cute, but be careful. It can store up large amounts of electricity in those adorable little cheeks. It'll try to pepper you with electric shocks."

Snake: "Couldn't be much worse than Ocelot's old torture device…"

Mei-Ling: "Oh, and, Snake?"

Snake: "What?"

Mei-Ling: "I was wondering, could you maybe try and catch Pikachu for me? Pleeeeeease?"

Snake: "Give me a break! What do I look like, a Pokémon Trainer?"

Mei-Ling: "Fine… Sorry I ask."

Pikmin & Olimar

the following quotes are translated from the Japanese version and may be altered in the American/European version

Mei Ling: "Snake, have you heard of Zhen Zhong Ji's 'Brief Dream of Prosperity?'"

Snake: "Nope, I haven't."

Mei Ling: "It says that 'being surrounded by people always leads to loneliness'. Although Olimar brings a lot of Pikmin, they quickly die. It's often through transporting, fighting, and being eaten. Olimar can increase the number of colleagues, but if you pay attention, he's quickly alone. It's kind of sad."

Snake: "But can't he just pluck some more?"

Mei Ling: "Well, I guess so."

Snake: "There's no such thing as a person who fights alone. I don't."

Mei Ling: "Good luck Snake. I'm here to help."


Snake : "Otacon, there's a kid here with wings out here. Is he a mutant? Or is he just into costumes?"

Otacon : "That's Pit, Snake. Pit is an angel from Angel Land. He's the captain of Palutena's army."

Snake : Angels" Give me a break!"

Otacon : "I dunno. Maybe he is from a different species.But those wings on his back and those mysterious weapons he has are the real deal. He may look young, but he's a veteran warrior. Watch yourself. He used to be a weakling, but countless trials over the years toughened him up."

Snake : "And by trials you mean, game overs?"

Otacon : "Yeah, you should know all about that."

Pokémon Trainer

the following quotes are translated from the Japanese version and may be altered in the American/European version

Snake: "The one instructing the Pokémon from the background, he's a Pokémon Trainer?"

Colonel: "That Pokémon Trainer is carrying Squirtle, Ivysaur, and Charizard. They're powerful Pokémon that represent the Water, Grass, and Fire type respectively. He prepares them to fight, then watches on. A good position, isn't it."

Snake: "You could say that. When the Pokémon fight, it's on the Pokémon Trainer's orders."

Colonel: "On the battlefield, a soldier who manages field strategy and evaluates the progress of war is indespensible. If they maintain a good combination together, their power is probably multiplied. That's why we also work well together. Don't you think, Snake?"

Snake: "...All right, thanks for your help."


the following quotes are translated from the Japanese version and may be altered in the American/European version

Otacon: "It looks like you're fighting Robot, Snake."

Snake: "There are lots of things called Robot. Isn't there something better to call him?"

Otacon: "In America its called ROB. So I guess that's what we can call it."

Snake: "Yeah."

Otacon: "In Japan, Robot had a white body and red arms which were called the Famicom colors. But Foreign Famicoms were gray so ROB became all gray."

Snake: "It's no surprise you know these kinds of things pretty well Otacon."

Otacon: "Yeah."


Snake: "Hey, Otacon. I got a woman here in a Power Suit…"

Otacon: "Huh? How'd you know she was a woman? Yeah, that'd be Samus Aran, the most renowned bounty hunter in the galaxy. Her arm cannon packs quite a wallop. If you get hit with a charged shot form that thing, you can kiss your butt good-bye."

Snake: "Sounds like my kind of woman…"

Otacon: "Yeah, well, just don't get too close, Snake. Samus is deadly. After Space Pirates killed her parents, she was raised by the Chozo and trained in the fighting arts. She's been places and seen things that people like you and me can't even begin to imagine."

Snake: "But underneath that cold, metal exterior beats the heart of a woman…"

Zero Suit Samus

Snake: "Mei Ling, Samus took her clothes off!"

Mei Ling: "That's just her in the Zero Suit, Snake."

Snake: "Without that bulky Power Suit, she's gotten a lot more agile… You know, I bet if I took of all this heavy gear, I could catch her…

Mei Ling: "Um, yeah, you wish. Even without the Power Suit, all that training she did with the Chozo has made her a super athlete. I don't think a normal human could ever keep up. Just look at her."

Snake: "…Her loss"

Solid Snake

Snake: "Colonel, it's me! I'm fighting myself!"

Colonel: "Snake, what's going on out there? Could it be? Has the 'Les Enfante Terribles' project really come this far?"

Snake: "It's more than that. He's got my moves, my gear...it's like looking in a mirrior."

Colonel: "Do you think they collected data on you and created another Snake?"

Snake: "He's got the same build too. Creepy. But his sneaking suit is a different color. And his tactics are slightly different."

Colonel: "Interesting. So even if you're evenly matched in power, your fighting styles will make a big difference. You've faced tougher odds in the past, Snake. Don't let this imposter beat you!"


the following quotes are translated from the Japanese version and may be altered in the American/European version

Snake: "...Grr..."

Otacon: "What's wrong, Snake?

Snake: "Somehow, I can't like this hedgehog."

Otacon: "Hm? Oh you mean Sonic the Hedgehog. He's a big star everyone knows. For a long time, everyone wanted him as a fighter for the brawl."

Snake: "I know that, but I still don't like this guy being here."

Otacon: "Why's that? Is there a reason why he shouldn't be?"

Snake: "...No, I don't know why."

Toon Link

the following quotes are translated from the Japanese version and may be altered in the American/European version

Snake: "Mei-Ling! What is that guy with the cat eyes ?"

Mei-ling: "He goes by the name of Toon Link. We've have seen him somewhere before right?"

Snake: "Yeah he's like Link."

Mei-ling: "Even though you just say "Link" there are many other people who've used that name. Although there are many similarities they lived in different eras. Branching time, passing through history, the hero of the triforce that risks his life for Hyrule."

Snake: "That reminds me of another guy."

Mei-ling: "Huh? Who do you mean?"

Snake: "There are a lot of guys who go by the name of 'Snake'."


Snake: "This guy kind of gives me the creeps."

Colonel: "That's Wario, Snake. Wario first appeared as Mario's rival, but he really made his name in the WarioWare games. Watch out for Wario's bite. It's not just damage you take from it."

Snake: "What do you mean, Colonel?"

Colonel: "Wario loves garlic. He eats whole cloves of it day and night. So try not get caught in his mouth. Once that smell gets on you, it'll stick to you for quite a while."

Snake: "…That's a scary thought."

Colonel: "He also attacks by farting. He can fart to fly around, too."

Snake: "By farting?! Are you kidding me?!"

Colonel: "Sadly, no. I am not kidding. If his belly starts to bulge, watch out."


the following quotes are translated from the Japanese version and may be altered in the American/European version

Snake: "Colonel, there's a guy who looks like a wolf..."

Colonel: "That is 'Wolf'."

Snake: "There's no twist to the name, huh?"

Colonel: "The leader of the rulfian unit 'Starwolf', he is an old enemy of 'Starfox'."

Snake: "Though he is a wolf, did he go with a comerade?"

Colonel: "It seems like group action is a weak point. He is remarkably skilled as a pilot. The combat group he operates, his 'Wolfen' is quite strong."

Snake: "This time it's a physical battle, I must not underestimate his strength."

Colonel: "Be careful not to get torn up by his sharp claws, Snake."


Snake: "Otacon! What's this lizard thing?"

Otacon: "That's a Yoshi. It's a dinosaur from Yoshi's Island. Watch out for it long chameleon-like tongue. If it gets you, you'll be swollowed whole."

Snake: "It lays eggs and throws them, right?… Then it must be female."

Otacon: "…Actually, it's a 'he.' At least, that's what it says."

Snake: "It talks!?"

Otacon: "Yes! It talks! Well, kind of…"

Snake: "Now you've got me curious …How about I capture one so we can see what they taste like?"

Otacon: "Uhh, Snake…"



Snake: "What's going on here? What happened to Zelda?!

Mei Ling: "Snake Princess Zelda transformed into Sheik. I can understand her clothes, but to change her skin and eye color? That must take some powerful magic."

Snake: "...Magic...?"

Mei Ling: "Come on Snake! Don't get all grumpy and start talking about how unscientific it is. Science is basically another form of magic that makes our life easier."

Snake: "I never thought I'd hear that comeing from you, Mei Ling."

Mei Ling: "Don't you think talking to someone halfway around the world is a kind of magic? Or flying across entire continents?"

Snake: "No I think this is completely different."

E3 2006 Trailer

the following quotes are not in the game but they were used in the E3 2006 Trailer for Super Smash Bros. Brawl "

Colonel: "Snake! Sorry to bother you, but I've got big news!"

Snake: "What? Not another absurd objective, I hope."

Colonel: "Are you familiar with Super Smash Bros.?"

Snake: "Ah… That Nintendo thing…"

Colonel: "Yes. Actually, we've recieved an invatation for you to join. Are you up for it?"

Snake: "…"

Colonel: "Where are you right now, anyway?"

Snake: "I'm on reconnaissance duty"

Colonel: "Reconnaissance?! Of what kind?!"

Snake: "Knowing you enemy is the quickest path to victory."
