#4 Cyborg Ninja/Grey Fox (Metal Gear Solid)
Our love-hate relationship with the Metal Gear Solid franchise has been documented elsewhere. Basically, there’s too much talky and not enough shooty. We were subsequently thrilled to bits when Cyborg Ninja showed up during one of Revolver Ocelot’s protracted monologues and promptly relieved him of his arm. Yeah! That’ll teach ya to shut your pie-hole!
Cyborg Ninja uses the same stealth camouflage suit as the alien from Predator. We choose to believe that he pilfered the device from the Predator’s corpse after vanquishing it in hand-to-hand combat. Now that’s hard! Apart from the aforementioned instance of partial dismemberment, Cyborg Ninja doesn’t actually do much in Metal Gear Solid. He basically just dashes around acting mysterious. Still, we couldn’t resist putting a cyborg ninja on the list. Cyborg ninjas are cool.
