This article is about a subject from outside Hideo Kojima's core "Metal Gear Saga." It has some level of canonicity within the continuity, but reader discretion is advised.[?]
The LQ-84 Fenrir was a quadrupedal Unmanned Gear. It had a canid-like appearance with a rail gun mounted on its back, although some variants possessed a chainsaw blade similar to the LQ-84i prototype Blade Wolf. The Fenrir's AI had a neuron count of 1.6 billion, significantly less than the 84i's 90 billion neurons, causing Blade Wolf to comment that a real dog had a greater intellect.

Fenrirs were utilized at the Colorado HQ of World Marshal Inc. in 2016, where they were deployed against cyborg intruder Samuel Rodrigues. In 2018, Desperado Enforcement LLC. used two Fenrirs during the Abkhazia coup to patrol the town hall area, although the then-AWOL LQ-84i encountered and destroyed them. Several were again dispatched at the World Marshal HQ to stop Raiden during the latter's "corporate raid" at the building.
Behind the scenes
Fenrirs appear in Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance and cannot be destroyed via Ninja Kill. Fenrir is the name of a large wolf in Norse mythology, said to be a son of the god Loki.
