  • ....without one. I have no idea why Wikia truncated the last words. The second ending in Peace Walker might support your statement, BUT, however, Metal Gear Solid V is the ultimatum to contradict and retcon anything that Peace Walker mentioned, since it comes afterwards and is directly tied to Peace Walker.

    If the souvenir image of Big Boss with MSF shows him without a bandana in 1974, it clearly shows that Big Boss does NOT wear any bandanas after throwing his in the lake, contradicting and retconning Peace Walker's second ending by a complete stretch, thus, rendering your statement invalid. There is no bandana in the photograph, and you cannot refute this.

      Maybe, but they still included the bandana on him during the graphic novel scenes where he confronted Paz. And besides, does it ever specifically state WHEN that photograph was taken (BESIDES 1974, I mean)? For all we know, that photo occurred AFTER the whole situation with Paz and ZEKE.

      December 5th, 1974. Sure, the graphical novels include the bandana in the Peace Walker incident, but there is no reason for why that is made explicit in the novels that explain your hypothesis in an explicit manner. Kojima specifically states that Big Boss throws out the bandana, never mentions anything about wearing a "second" one.

      True, but he also never specifically states how he even got that bandana in what chronologically occurred AFTER that chapter (nor, for that matter, did he ever explain why Snake still had a scar on his chest despite using it to escape Strangelove). And he never specifically states WHEN Paz's rebellion occurred, either (could just as easily have been December 4, for all we know. They could have at least dropped a date for that one).

    • Which is what I exactly said. My point is that the appearance of the bandana and the chain "scar" in the Paz rebellion in the novels simply going unexplained is a very starking odd juxtaposition and it is likely that both were only included in those chapters for familiarity reasons to audiences playing Peace Walker and expecting Peace Walker content.

      It is better off to assume this juxtaposition of sorts as a trivia statement opens up for possible debate instead of making it fact based off assumptions, when you have two sources that depict similar time periods (late 1974, post-event that Big Boss throws out The Boss' bandana) that directly contrast each other. The photograph seems to be way more believable, in my opinion.
      Contrast

      Contradictory retcons?

  • Would it be possible to change the reference to "their" instead of "His" on the Captain's page to keep it gender neutral?

  • Hey Weedle, you've been a contributor to the Wiki for a while now. Isn't it time you chose an avatar by now? You can pick something random, doesn't matter, it just adds a bit of personality to your user profile (better than the anonymous default pic anyway). http://community.wikia.com/wiki/Help:Avatars

  • Hey, I transcribed the Japanese text from the book page screenshot:

    DPKsmYVV4AEIGXV

    新川・AI兵器は激しい動によって多大な慣性がかるので人が乗りこめないんですが、メタルギアZEKEはコツクピットに水をを満たすことで慣性による衝撃を吸收している、という設定です。もともとは、「メタルギアZEKEに搭乗するパスは水着でH型ハーネスを装備した姿にしたい」と提案したときに、監督から「水着になる理由がほしい」と言われたのを受けて、このような仕様になりました。

    Shinkawa proposed the inertial compensation idea to explain the flooded cockpit and Paz's underwater gear. However, I'm not sure whether this was in response to Kojima's specification for her to be in a bathing suit, or whether it was originally Shinkawa's idea and Kojima wanted some justification for it. Feel free to translate it yourself if you have the time.

    • As soon as I actually have mastery of Japanese (especially Kanji), I'll make an effort to translate it.

      You don't need mastery to make a rough attempt. I just use Google Translate most of the time as it has a tool for drawing the characters, but like I said in my conclusion above, it wasn't perfectly clear.
