[57][58] One of their spies becomes Raiden's girlfriend and the two fall in love. He also could grip, hold, and even throw objects with inhuman ease and precision in his mouth. Afterwards, he was deployed to Sukhumi, the capital of Abkhazia, on an MQ-133C flying wing on loan to Maverick, where he was then launched when nearing insertion by a rocket platform, in order to quell a military coup that resulted in the Abkhazian president and most of his cabinet being killed. The Patriots had named him after the plane[23] and later informed Raiden that, like his namesake, he was nothing more than a weapon, a tool to be discarded once its usefulness has been outlived. [134] Voice actor Reuben Langdon described Raiden as a character he always wanted to play as most notably on Super Smash Bros.[135], Raiden's role in Metal Gear Solid 2 has been analyzed by several writers, who said he is intended to represent the player. [2] The codename "Raiden" was based on that of the Mitsubishi J2M Raiden, a historical combat aircraft of the Imperial Japanese Navy Air Service. His original cyborg body's durability was relatively low, as it was lacking armor, and was obsolete with limited battlefield potential as of 2018. It also specified that it's not a pre-order bonus. After becoming an cyborg, Raiden implied that he would drown if he attempted to swim due to his immense weight. The name was altered because in Japanese, “Laden” is written as ラーディン, and thus sounded too similar to the name "Osama bin Laden," the then leader of the terrorist group al-Qaeda, partially due to the plot heavily resembling the events of 9/11.[40]. Raiden was a special character downloadable from the SCENE expansion pack along with Vamp. However, Raiden, in the process of getting into Solis, accidentally broke the electronically locked gate, thinking it was open. Matsuyama wanted Raiden to have as strong a role in the game as in Metal Gear Solid 2, leading him to become its main character. The Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty 2007 comic book adaptation by Alex Garner retells Raiden's story with few changes. [29] His desire to protect the weak at all costs, even if it meant taking lives to ensure the weak were protected, stemmed from his past as a child soldier in Liberia, and not wanting anyone else to experience the kind of childhood he had. [4] Raiden was originally supposed to get a completely new cybernetic eye to replace the one he lost, but Doktor was unable to create it before the surgery, so he had to wear a makeshift eye-patch for a while.

Despite the scientist's attempts to silence George, George's encouragement was enough for Raiden to agree to cutting down both the scientist and George. [61] Another update on the official site indicated that the MGS4 Raiden skin will be available for pre-order from Amazon for the Japanese release of Rising. [22] Raiden's design was changed during the game's development, leading to different promotional images of him. [38] Another concept for him was his being a cyborg, which would have been revealed late into the game with a triangular chest plate when he was captured on Arsenal Gear.[37]. "Ivan," the first name of Raikov, is the Russian equivalent of "John," for which "Jack" is often used as a nickname in English. This allowed him to wield his sword between his teeth, throw and jam his blade into a wall exactly in front of Snake to stop him, and fend off against several FROG soldiers without his arms. Raiden then fell into the cityscape. Social Ops Black Raiden bonus giveaway advert for Edion Corporation. [35] In Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots Raiden's entire body below the upper jaw is replaced with a prototype cybernetic body. In other words, Raiden's lack of awareness of his son and his disdain for Rose meant that both would serve no purpose to the Patriots, as their suffering would not move him in any way. This conversation ends with Sunny landing him with an invoice requiring him to fully pay off the restructuring and repair costs. SNS The deceased Raiden is clutching his groin, indicating that the killer is President Johnson, referencing the latter's actions in the main Sons of Liberty story line. Raiden then met with Snake, who gave him most of his equipment back, along with Olga's high-frequency blade. The enhancements implanted throughout Raiden's body, however, were too severe to allow him to live a normal life again. Solid Snake encourages Raiden to ignore what people tell him and to become self-reliant when problem-solving. Raiden enters defensive position after being ambushed by the IM prototype LQ-84I/K-9000. [47] During development of Metal Gear Solid: Rising, Flynn was not informed about the work despite Raiden being in the trailer. It was during his rescue of Sunny that he met the former Soviet soldier Boris Vyacheslavovich Popov, who was the war buddy of Sunny's grandfather, Sergei Gurlukovich, who aided him out of the realization that the Patriots were a threat to the world, not just America.

He also had a dry sense of humor and was somewhat sarcastic during this time as well, as he responded to Boris when he asked how it felt to be flying like a bird (referring to his being carried over by the MQ-133C flying wing to Abkhazia) that it felt like "a bird strapped to a rocket.". [118] The idea of Raiden primarily using his sword to counterattack firepower was found appealing by Complex due to how Revengeance explores the soldier as a melee fighter. AI representations of the Colonel and Rose told Raiden that he was just a weapon, a creation of the Patriots with no purpose but for what they made him. [49], Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty introduces the player to Raiden in the Plant chapter; Jack is introduced as a newly recruited, virtual reality-trained member of FOXHOUND with no live-combat experience before his current mission. However, N'mani had a good sense of humor to jokingly call him "Mr. He also fought against himself, such being the case with Red Raiden vs. Hideo Raiden and Black Raiden vs. White Raiden (and to some extent, "Fire" vs. "Ice"). The staff noted that Raiden's debut in the game's trailer received notably positive responses; several video-game magazines promoted the game with Raiden's screenshots. After making his way through a Japanese Garden-styled room, he then proceeded to take a freight elevator to the top, although he had to fight several Desperado cyborgs and UGs before reaching the top. Indeed, while under this persona, he frequently breaks out into manic laughter when killing his enemies; he also emits a crimson aura, and keeps the blood of his enemies on his sword. Raiden's final duel with the boss Solidus Snake was revised in the making of the game. This was implied in an auxillary Codec conversation during the second phase of the final battle with Solidus Snake, and later confirmed by Raiden in an optional Codec conversation with Kevin Washington. He is saved by the elder scientist Wilhelm Voight and works with them to fight Desperado. Afterwards, when Andrey Dolzaev called Mistral upon her death, Raiden picked up the radio and told him to surrender. Due to his participation in the Liberian Civil War, Raiden was one of the few Force XXI VR subjects to possess actual combat experience. [42] Raiden defeats Desperado and learns that Steven Armstrong was using PMCs to distract him as he attempts to create a new War on Terror. In addition, he was also led to believe that his child had died from a miscarriage. Also, because of his past as a child soldier, as well as his possessing Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, as a result, he also occasionally pushed away even people he cared about due to his being "afraid of the night." Jack the RipperWhite DevilSnakeMr. Raiden shared some similarities with his Cyborg Ninja predecessor, Gray Fox: both had been child soldiers who were given nicknames (and to a lesser extent, formal names) due to their brutality, underwent cybernetic experimentation by the Patriots, had their memories suppressed, used technologically advanced blades, and they both saved Solid Snake from a Metal Gear (Fox with Metal Gear REX, and Raiden with Outer Haven). Although proficient at all types of weaponry, Raiden specializes in wielding swords that resonate at high frequencies for the last fights in Sons of Liberty,[36] and during Guns of the Patriots and Revengeance. After undergoing surgery to clear his body of nanomachines and being saved by Drago Pettrovich Madnar, he was successful in reclaiming Big Boss' remains from the Patriots. However, when Dolzaev refused, Raiden deduced from his reply that he was actually intending to blow himself up near a power pylon as his final act, but was unable to stop him in time. In the original game plan of Metal Gear Solid 2, Raiden was to have had false memories of his father, in which he was apparently killed in a hunting accident. [130] Following Metal Gear Solid 4's release, Raiden also appeared in more lists. Naomi recognized that he required a white blood transfusion and dialysis, which they procured for him while in Europe, with help from his former acquaintance, Dr. Madnar. Biographical information The exoskeleton can also bulk up to enhance the strength and speed of Raiden, similar to Solidus Snake's exoskeleton. This scene was deleted from the original game due to the September 11 attacks.

Athlete His aim is to incapacitate a group of soldiers known as the "body snatchers", a reference to the android replicators in Kojima's video game Snatcher. Armed with a gun at the age of six, he would later remember it as an AK rifle, as well as a knife, he proved to be a superior soldier, rising to become captain of the Small Boy Unit at ten. He also was requested by Doktor to retrieve the left hands of any cyborgs that he defeated, largely due to the valuable data stored on their arms, in exchange for both the surgery and any future upgrades. His training with Solidus suggested some emphasis in melee combat, and particularly in bladed weapons, as demonstrated by his defeat of Solidus in a sword fight during the Big Shell Incident. Eventually, without Solidus' knowledge, he was later removed by a non-governmental organization and taken to the United States. As Raiden was one of the few people who could expose the truth, Armstrong decided to kill Raiden with EXCELSUS. In the English version, similar to his appearance in the Snake Eraser segment (which also dealt with time travel), Raiden is not voiced by Quinton Flynn. Jack was born on a rainy day in Liberia. [63] The trauma of his breakup with Rosemary and the apparent miscarriage of his child have made Raiden believe he belongs on the battlefield. It's interesting to note that whilst playing as this character, Raiden shares the same face as Frank Jaeger in Metal Gear Solid: The Twin Snakes. However, his skills at Russian were less than stellar. [24] Shinkawa designed Raiden's new body to emphasize his dark heroism, contrasting with his Metal Gear Solid 4 persona. Seeing Gray Fox as one of his favorite characters, Shinkawa made Raiden be an archetype of such character, making Raiden a cyborg like him. After locating Solidus within the gap between parallel universes and learning of Solidus's plan to ensure that he and his alternate selves survive their fated defeats via interfering with the Koppelthorn Engine, he uses his abilities via the Koppelthorne Engine to seal Solid Snake into the body of a "young, blond man" and experience various surreal realities (alluding to Raiden as well as acting as a subtle nod towards Raiden replacing Snake as the main protagonist in the main story). MGR Finally, Raiden, just like Liquid, was taken against his will by a father figure who resembled and were connected to Big Boss: Raiden was adopted by Solidus Snake, while Eli was taken in by Venom Snake (the former being a clone and the latter being a body double for Big Boss).

The transport chopper had limited defenses, including an EMP generator that could deflect missiles, but not the drones themselves. [5] The surprise to fans that Raiden was not Snake was admitted by Kojima to have been inspired by the plot twist of Terminator 2: Judgment Day where the titular character played by Arnold Schwarzenegger was not a villain in that movie.
