―Revolver Ocelot to Solid Snake

Revolver Ocelot, real name Adamska (Russian: Адамска), and also known as ADAM, Shalashaska (Russian: Шалашаска), or simply Ocelot (Russian: Оцелот), was an operative of FOXHOUND and an agent of the Patriots. A master of interrogation and a formidable gunfighter, he was often referred to as a "ricochet genius" in regards to his gun fighting skills. Ocelot was known for his affinity of Spaghetti Westerns, as evidenced by his choice of weapon and his clothing, duster and spurs, the traditional garb of cowboys. His weapon of choice was the Colt Single Action Army Revolver, which he described as "the greatest handgun ever made."

Throughout his career, Ocelot became personally acquainted with all four members of the Snake family: a friendly rival to Big Boss, the right hand man for Liquid Snake and Solidus Snake, and a nemesis to Solid Snake. Specializing in infiltrations of a different nature than Solid Snake and Big Boss, Ocelot often acted as a triple agent, to serve multiple interests in the same situation.

BiographyEdit

Early life and careerEdit

Ocelot was conceived in late 1943 by The Joy and The Sorrow just prior to a secret mission. The Joy learned of her pregnancy during the mission, which resulted in her blowing her cover and being fired upon. Although her unborn child was saved from the bullet, The Joy entered a coma for three months before regaining consciousness. After making a full recovery another three months later, she speculated that her body had willed her to live for the sake of her unborn child.

Ocelot was born during the Allied invasion of Normandy, France on June 6, 1944 as Adamska. The Joy was wounded during childbirth in the middle of the battlefield, forcing her to give birth via cesarean section and the resulting operation gave her a snake-shaped scar on her torso. Shortly after birth, Adamska was taken from his parents by agents of the Philosophers.

Adamska briefly worked for the NSA as a code breaker under the codename ADAM. But he and another colleague defected to the Soviet Union in September 1960. However, a seemingly contradictory account has the youth taken in and raised by the Spetsnaz and Yevgeny Borisovitch Volgin in the immediate aftermath of World War II.[3] Whatever the case, Ocelot would later serve under Volgin's command of GRU while secretly operating as a spy for both the KGB and the CIA; proxy organizations of the Russian and American branches of the Philosophers, respectively. Due to his heritage as the son of a legendary hero, he was given preferential treatment within the organization, promoted to the rank of Major at a very young age, and given command of his own personal squad.

In 1962, a threat towards Adamska's life was made to his mother in order to ensure that she would assassinate her former comrade (Adamska's father). His life was to have been forfeit if both survived the encounter, ensuring his father's death.[4]

Operation Snake EaterEdit

See also: Virtuous Mission and Operation Snake Eater


In August 1964, Ocelot traveled to Rassvet, Tselinoyarsk with the Ocelot Unit in order to capture Nikolai Stepanovich Sokolov for the GRU. He ambushed the KGB operatives stationed in the area and killed them, although he implied that he did not like having to do so, as they were comrades.[5] Surrounding them with the Ocelot Unit, he attempted to kill Naked Snake by using a Middle Eastern technique that involved ejecting the first bullet by hand, but his Makarov handgun jammed at the last moment, resulting in Ocelot and his entire unit being defeated. Snake then suggested that Ocelot use revolvers, as he was quoted saying that he "tends to twist his elbow to absorb the recoil" which was a technique used with revolvers, before the latter passed out.

After regaining consciousness a short time later, Ocelot boarded Colonel Volgin's Hind A while they were airlifting the Shagohod prototype to Groznyj Grad. Having received two Davy Crockett missiles from The Boss when she defected, Volgin decided to test one on Sokolov's research facility, while Ocelot attempted to stop him. Unable to convince Volgin, Ocelot could only watch in horror as the Colonel launched the miniature warhead and destroyed the facility in a nuclear explosion. At some point afterwards, Ocelot managed to get some Colt Single Action Army revolvers, including one engraved model and three blackpowder models, and presumably also modified the Makarov bullet with a specialized ring attachment to give the normally 9mm Makarov bullet a diameter closer to that of the Single Action Army in the event that he uses it to exact revenge on Naked Snake.[6]

One week later, Ocelot was ordered by the CIA to aid Naked Snake in Operation Snake Eater, in which The Boss, the Cobra Unit, and the threat of the Shagohod were to be eliminated, while also retrieving the Philosophers' Legacy for the American branch of the Philosophers. However, before Ocelot could meet up with Snake, a Chinese spy posing as EVA, pretended to help Snake in his mission while secretly plotting to take the Philosophers' Legacy herself for the Philosophers in China. Ocelot decided to keep his identity as ADAM a secret and aided Snake covertly. Throughout the mission, Ocelot and Snake shared a mutual rivalry and fought on several occasions. On the first occasion, after Snake again neutralized his unit at Rassvet, Ocelot attempted to lure Snake over to the area where he had captured EVA, and revealed that, following Snake's earlier advice, he had switched to using the a Single Action Army revolver, and then attempted to shoot Snake. However, he failed to realize that he had wasted all of his shots due to the SAA carrying fewer bullets than the Makarov, and EVA escaped in the process, after which Snake explained Ocelot's folly. Snake allowed a humiliated Ocelot to escape, allegedly because he was "still young," although it was actually because he had taken a liking to him.

Ocelot re-encountered Snake at the Bolshaya Past crevice, where they had a gun duel. However, it was interrupted with The Pain's hornets scouting ahead, forcing him to flee. Afterwards, he tried to play "Russian roulette" with Sokolov in order to intimidate him before The Boss ended up stopping him. She also scolded Ocelot for his earlier actions at Bolshaya Past, breaking his SAA in the process. After Volgin's forces managed to track down and capture Aleksandr Leonovitch Granin under accusations of being a spy, he also discovered that Volgin ended up killing Granin while torturing him inside of a drum can before he could reveal whether or not he was a spy. Ocelot later scolded Volgin about his practices, as well as his nuking the Sokolov Research Facility, with Volgin rebutting him due to being in command of Groznyj Grad, as well as feeling that it is his duty that he has to root out spies within the Soviet Union before it collapses. When Tatyana arrives, he smells her "perfume" (actually gasoline), and initially suspects her of being the KGB spy, but stops and instead comments on her "boots" (which were her biking boots instead of her officer boots).

Ocelot, 2

After Snake was captured while infiltrating Groznyj Grad, Ocelot witnessed Volgin's brutal torture of the American agent. Though initially opposed to the practice, Ocelot later praised the effectiveness of torture, calling it "the ultimate form of expression." He also attempted to expose Tatyana's true affiliations after she prevented The Boss from gouging Snake's eyes out, subjecting her to his Russian roulette. However, Snake got in the way, resulting in the loss of his eye in the process, an act which earned Ocelot a violent slap from The Boss. He also jammed a tracer in Snake's back while hitting him, in case he escaped. Ocelot later hunted down Snake in the sewers, and was about to shoot him with the bullet from their first meeting, but Snake jumped off the cliff.

When Snake was again caught infiltrating Groznyj Grad, Ocelot explained how he had deduced that Tatyana was the spy EVA, and expressed his desire to settle the score with Snake, but was stopped by Volgin. During the fight between Snake and Volgin, Ocelot was ordered to shoot Snake. However, Ocelot refused, instead throwing items down to Snake to use against Volgin. This alluded to Ocelot's admiration for Snake, although he explained that he did it because he had made a promise to The Boss. Afterwards, Volgin ordered Ocelot to locate the bombs that had been detected within the hangar. Ocelot later attempted to chase EVA and Snake down by motorcycle, and was also briefly saved by Snake from falling debris. He also nearly got killed from the ignition and backwash of the Shagohod's rocket booster engines while continuing his pursuit of EVA and Snake, which were deliberately activated by Volgin upon Ocelot's arrival as the former's revenge for his earlier disobedience. Ocelot temporarily abandoned the pursuit after they destroyed a nearby rail bridge which he narrowly avoided falling into, which also cost him one of his revolvers in the process.

When Snake and EVA attempted to escape on a WIG over Rokovoj Bereg, Ocelot boarded the craft from a flying platform and, following a brief fight with Snake, decided to settle on a duel of quick draw. Following the duel's outcome, Ocelot exchanged first names with Snake to demonstrate that they were "real men" and not their animal namesakes, before bidding farewell to John and leaping from the low-flying craft to the water below.

Post-Snake EaterEdit

After Operation Snake Eater's success, the KGB Chief Director contacted Ocelot, where the latter mentioned that "Khrushchev is finished", and that the KGB's time had finally arrived, as well as suggested that they use the knowledge of both missions as blackmail against America in future negotiations. Shortly thereafter, Ocelot secretly made a call to the CIA Director. Their conversation revealed that the CIA had only acquired half of the Legacy, and it was assumed that the KGB possessed the other half. He also submitted some blueprints of a potential future weapon for the United States. He also confirmed that they had supplied the Chinese with a fake microfilm (revealing he deduced EVA was a Chinese agent).

Due to his earlier witnessing of Naked Snake being tortured by Colonel Volgin, Ocelot began to research it, eventually becoming an expert in the field. At some later point, Ocelot eventually recovered the other half of the Legacy but kept it for himself.

San Hieronymo TakeoverEdit

Main article: San Hieronymo Takeover
Ocelot portable ops 2

Ocelot, 1970.

In 1970, Ocelot became dissatisfied with the American Philosophers' bickering, which had pitted the CIA against the Pentagon for control of the Philosophers' Legacy. Because of this, Ocelot took advantage of the internal situation while a takeover on the San Hieronymo Peninsula took place. After Big Boss (Naked Snake) foiled Gene's plan to have a nuclear missile hit Langley and the Pentagon, Ocelot secured the other half of the Legacy and assassinated the DCI in a manner that was indistinguishable from suicide, hoping to free the country from the Philosophers and attain the entire Legacy (as well as the complete list with the identities of the Philosopher members), as well as planning to retrieve what the DCI stole from both him and his unknown conspirator and thus carry on The Boss's spirit.

Post-San HieronymoEdit

Ocelot planned to break his ties with his benefactor, until the mysterious man revealed battle data on the Perfect Soldier Project and introduced the concept of "genomes" to him. Ocelot, intrigued, then agreed to join him in the formation of "the Patriots." However, he only did this under the condition that Big Boss be allowed to join them as well.

Les Enfants TerriblesEdit

Ocelot's request was granted when Zero recruited Big Boss, along with Sigint, Para-Medic and EVA, to found their new organization. The Patriots' dream was to shape the world into one which The Boss had envisioned, one which would once more be "whole" again. However, Zero's interpretation of her will greatly differed from that of Big Boss, which would eventually lead to their fall out. Big Boss had been raised to a being of Christ-like reverence, but he resented being treated as a puppet for the Patriots' goals. Unbeknownst to Big Boss, Para-Medic (Dr. Clark) had retrieved a sample of his DNA after he had been injured in battle, and the Patriots began work on developing a clone in order to keep their "messiah" alive. In 1972, EVA agreed to serve as the surrogate mother for the twin sons. However, Big Boss did not agree to this plan and left the group to form his own mercenary army in opposition to Zero's Patriots.

Later careerEdit

Ocelot continued his life as a spy and agent for the Patriots (although he secretly resented its policies). He also participated in several wars across Africa and the Middle East throughout the 1970s and '80s. While in the Spetsnaz GRU, he participated in the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan. It was during this time that he became feared amongst the mujahideen as a sadist, for which they named him "Shalashaska." At some point, he also ended up working in the Soviet Union's concentration camps as a special torture advisor, and was known to have utilized the Lubyanka prison underneath the KGB headquarters as his training for interrogating his victims.[7]

Sometime during Ocelot's career in the Soviet military, he met Sergei Gurlukovich, a fellow member of the Spetsnaz. After the fall of the Soviet Union, Ocelot left Spetsnaz. Although he claimed to share Sergei's beliefs in restoring Russia to her former glory,[8] he secretly held no interest in the matter.

Spoiler warning: Plot or ending details for Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain may follow.

At some point during the 1980s, he discovered the survivors of the Militaires Sans Frontières, who had renamed themselves as the Diamond Dogs, and allied with them due to Big Boss's ties to the group, also leading the group in Big Boss's absence due to his status of being in a coma and Miller ended up captured in Afghanistan.

Ocelot in Afghanistan, 1984.

In 1984, Ocelot assisted with Big Boss's escape from a besieged hospital, allowing him to ride on the back of his white Andalusian. While Ocelot rode the horse, Big Boss fended off perceived attackers, until they were eventually stopped by a collapsing cliff. The two later traveled to Afghanistan, where Ocelot provided intel to Big Boss regarding the location of his captured comrade Kazuhira Miller, who had been captured ten days prior to Big Boss awakening, informing him that he could not help directly due to Big Boss's renowned status, especially when Big Boss needs to recreate the legend he once was. Ocelot also informed Big Boss that he needed to rescue Miller within three days as otherwise their lead towards XOF will dry up. He then left to help finish up the completion of the new Mother Base that the Diamond Dogs set up and supplied Big Boss with Miller's sunglasses, also acting as mission advisor while Big Boss was on the field. Sometime later, Ocelot and Miller proceeded to torture Huey Emmerich as well as supervising the torture of Quiet.[9] During his interrogation of the former, he also injected Huey with truth serum on the neck.

Spoilers end here

Actions during the 1990sEdit

Ocelot's official file mentioned that after the fall of the Soviet Union, he joined the OMON (Special Purpose Police Squad) and the Russian Tax Police's elite SWAT team. Afterward he joined the SVR (a successor agency of the KGB) however he eventually became dissatisfied with the agency's rigid system and left Russia. This account is considered to be false however,[10] during this time he actually pursued mercenary work, cutting a swath through the world's hot spots while similtaneously working as a spy for the Patriots.

After Solid Snake foiled Big Boss's attempted coups d'état during the Outer Heaven Uprising in 1995, and the Zanzibar Land Disturbance in 1999, Zero had the injured Big Boss put in a nanomachine-induced coma to preserve the Patriots' messiah, which infuriated Ocelot and EVA. As a result, they both left the Patriots but Ocelot did so in secret in order to continue operating as a spy and maintain their trust. EVA and Ocelot formed a plan to recover Big Boss's body from Zero's clutches.

Following the Zanzibar Land Disturbance, Ocelot was scouted by U.S. Special Forces Unit FOXHOUND in 1999[10][11] and joined under Liquid Snake's command[12] circa 2000.[13] Unbeknownst to Liquid, Ocelot's decision to join FOXHOUND was based on his admiration for Big Boss, its former commander,[12] and the man from whom Liquid had been cloned. Ocelot thus became the unit's interrogation specialist, operating under the additional codename of "Revolver." In 2003, Ocelot and EVA became allies of Naomi Hunter, and used her adoptive brother Gray Fox to kill FOXHOUND's medical chief Dr. Clark, a.k.a. Para-Medic.

Shadow Moses IncidentEdit

Main article: Shadow Moses Incident


In February 2005, Revolver Ocelot secretly worked as U.S. President George Sears's agent to incite Liquid into bringing about an insurrection on Shadow Moses Island, along with the other serving members of FOXHOUND and the Next-Generation Special Forces. In addition, Ocelot used his influence to gain his old comrade Sergei Gurlukovich's support providing military hardware to the Sons of Big Boss.

Revolver-ocelot-metal-gear-solid-game-mobile-wallpaper-1080x1920-6820-3648909912

Revolver Ocelot in 2005.

Early in the insurrection, Ocelot tortured ArmsTech President Kenneth Baker and broke his right arm, resulting in Baker divulging his detonation code for Metal Gear REX. Ocelot then killed the DARPA Chief Donald Anderson (Sigint) during a supposedly botched torture session. By doing so, he intentionally deprived Liquid of the necessary launch codes for Metal Gear, though the real reason was that Anderson recognized Ocelot as not truly working for the terrorists.[14] Since Anderson was still in league with Zero, Ocelot killed the DARPA chief.[15] He was later reprimanded by Liquid for this action, which, compounded with Psycho Mantis' inability to read Anderson's mind due to cranial implants designed to prevent mind-readers to detect the passcodes, had them restrategize by tricking the arriving force to activating REX for them.[16] They made Decoy Octopus disguise himself as Anderson to talk Snake into the act.

Revolver Ocelot later challenged Solid Snake to a gunfight. But midway through the duel, his right hand was cut off by the Cyborg Ninja (Gray Fox), and he was forced to flee, taking the amputated hand with him. Ocelot later vowed to kill Snake during a conversation with Vulcan Raven, as well as expressed irritation at the latter reminding him of his loss of his hand and remarking him as "General Ivan". Later after Psycho Mantis's death and Sniper Wolf captured Snake, Ocelot interrogated Snake, electrocuting him via his torture device, with orders from Liquid to not kill Snake as he had done to the DARPA Chief. During the torture, he also decided to have Snake play a little "game" during the torture sessions to see whether Snake could withstand the torture or submit, stating that if he submitted, Snake would be spared, but he would torture and kill Meryl Silverburgh as a result. During the interrogation, he revealed that he had fought wars in Afghanistan, Eritrea, Mozambique, and Chad, also revealing his allegiance to Sergei Gurlukovich and inferring that he planned to restore Russia.[8] Like Liquid, Ocelot's goal was to create a world of strife that allowed people to express their true feelings, believing that the current world had put humanity in a position where they could not do so.[17] Ocelot, anticipating that Snake would escape from the medical room, also planted a time bomb within Snake's equipment, though the latter eventually discovered and disposed of it.

Ocelot was later present with Liquid when deciding which to make REX's target, learning more of Liquid's plans about Outer Heaven, as well as wondering whether to keep Meryl as bait for Snake. When asked by Liquid about the detonation keys, Ocelot claimed that Snake didn't carry any keys. He later shot the PAL key out of Snake's hand, after catching a glimpse of him hiding on a security monitor.

Ocelot's true goal was realized when he retrieved REX's test data from Snake, as per the President's orders, without handing it over to Liquid. Towards the end of the Shadow Moses Incident, Ocelot discussed plans with Liquid concerning an alliance with Gurlukovich's mercenary forces, though this never came to be due to REX’s destruction at the hands of Snake, the Ninja and Otacon. While Snake defeated REX and Liquid, Ocelot took the REX data with him and escaped Shadow Moses, and later delivered it to the President along with reporting the events that transpired.

Post-Shadow MosesEdit

After the incident, Revolver Ocelot placed "the woman" under surveillance as per the President's orders,[18] sold Metal Gear REX's test data to many nations via the black market (earning enough money for him to "buy a decent-sized country" in the process), and broke Naomi out of prison. At some point, he had his right arm replaced with Liquid Snake's arm via an arm transplant surgery in Lyon, France, with Solidus Snake presumably being involved in the funding.[19] During this time, he aided Solidus, helping him to go into hiding after the Patriots had planned to kill him. In order to fool the Patriots, Ocelot began to utilize a combination of psychotherapy, drugs, hypnosis, and nanomachines to become a mental doppelgänger with Liquid's personality within him and only manifesting it every time he and Solid Snake were in close proximity to make it look like spiritual possession.

The Manhattan IncidentEdit

See also: Tanker Incident and the Big Shell Incident

In 2007, Revolver Ocelot was ordered by the Patriots to steal the U.S. Marines' Metal Gear RAY which was seen as a threat to the development of the Navy's Arsenal Gear but planned to mass-produce a redesigned model in order to protect it instead. During this time, he also underwent the appropriate VR training for piloting RAY for the moment he ended up stealing it.

Ocelot old

Revolver Ocelot, circa 2009.

On August 8, 2007, Ocelot used the help of Sergei Gurlukovich and the Gurlukovich Mercenaries to infiltrate the tanker in which RAY was being transported and stole it (or, in his words, "taking [RAY] back"), sinking the tanker in the process. He also betrayed Sergei and left both him and Marine Commandant Scott Dolph for dead. It was here when Liquid Snake's persona first took over Ocelot and made his presence known to Solid Snake. After hijacking RAY, Liquid proceeded to destroy the Discovery, along with the U.S. Marines on board, before making his escape. Some short time after this, Ocelot regained control of his body. The Patriots then continued with their plan (unaware that Ocelot still intended on betraying them), sinking a real oil tanker at the same spot, and constructing the Big Shell. In addition, when reporting to the Patriots (namely someone identified as the President) about the success of his mission, he also promises to meet up with his contact at a pre-arranged location.[20]

In April 2009, Revolver Ocelot then met up with Solidus Snake and the two formed the Sons of Liberty comprised of the remaining members of Dead Cell and the Gurlukovich Mercenaries, plotting to take over the Big Shell, which secretly housed Arsenal Gear. Solidus planned to eliminate the Patriots, completely unaware that his partner in the plan was one of them. In addition, he was also ordered by Solidus to plant the idea into Fortune and Vamp that they hijack Arsenal Gear from Solidus as a way to "draw the Patriots' fire" while Solidus hunts down the names of the Wisemen's Committee.

Ocelot & solidus

Ocelot and Solidus Snake, on board Arsenal Gear, in 2009.

After Fatman was killed after attempting to blow up the Big Shell, Ocelot reported to Solidus the possibility that Fatman was actually planted by the Patriots, gave the damage report for Shell 2, had planted the Semtex around the Shell connecting bridge, and got Emma Emmerich to explain things relating to Arsenal Gear via truth serum. He also began feeling that his transplanted arm was beginning to try to take control again, and resorted to hypodermic injections to keep it at bay. He also had sore relations with Olga Gurlukovich, the new leader of the Gurlukovich Mercenaries, due to her belief that Ocelot abandoned her father when he was killed. Ocelot also encountered Raiden (an unknowing agent of the Patriots) prior to the death of Secret Service agent Richard Ames, and again, when he later assassinated U.S. President James Johnson. He also was present after Raiden was captured on Arsenal Gear by Olga (secretly on Snake and Raiden's side), and suggested to Solidus that they use Raiden as bait to lure out the mole (referring to Olga). Although Ocelot knew that the similarities to the Shadow Moses Incident were deliberate, he nonetheless felt a sense of nostalgia to when he tortured Snake in a torture room similar to the one they were currently in. At the end of Raiden's mission, Ocelot revealed that all the events that had unfolded were scripted by the Patriots and that Solidus and Raiden were merely pawns and had been part of a huge test scenario for the Patriots' new AI; the only part that was unscripted was the appearance of Solid Snake.

Snake's appearance was actually engineered by Liquid's personality. Through the transplanted arm, Liquid's "spirit" periodically possessed Ocelot's body with the goal of disrupting Ocelot's plans. At the climax of Solidus's takeover, Liquid's persona once again took control of Ocelot, crashing Arsenal Gear into Manhattan and escaping with RAY although not before beckoning Snake to pursue him, as well as Snake planting a transmitter on his hijacked RAY. Afterwards, he headed off to take down the Patriots, although Snake theorized that the Patriots may have given Ocelot a bogus location to begin with.

Post-Big ShellEdit

Afterwards, Revolver Ocelot replaced Liquid Snake's arm with a cybernetic one.[21] Ocelot did this because the so-called "possessions" during the Manhattan Incident had caused an imbalance to his psyche. He then allowed Liquid's psyche to dominate his mind completely. The fusion that resulted was Liquid Ocelot.

Liquid Ocelot's InsurrectionEdit

"Liquid Ocelot", in 2014.

See main article

By 2014, Liquid Ocelot resurfaced to plan his insurrection against the Patriots. As the CEO of the Outer Heaven mother company, he controlled five of the largest PMCs and the benefactor of an all female mercenary group.

Using Solidus Snake's DNA to enter the Patriots' AI network, Ocelot succeeded in taking over the SOP system and used it to disable every gun and weapon in the world. After recovering the rail gun from the remains of Metal Gear REX on Shadow Moses Island, Liquid Ocelot used Metal Gear RAY against Metal Gear REX, being piloted by Old Snake (Solid Snake). After REX and RAY were disabled, Ocelot retreated to an Arsenal Gear-class battleship stolen from the Patriots that he turned into his main base and outfitted with REX's rail gun. He then planned to use the rail gun's nuclear warhead to destroy the Patriots' orbital core AI so he could allegedly replace it with GW and control the Patriots. His battleship would be chased by a worthless fossil.

After Snake and Otacon uploaded a computer worm into the battleship, Ocelot's forces were defeated, though that had been part of his plan all along. While pleased at his apparent success, Ocelot felt that he still had a score to settle with his "brother" and the two fought one last time. Ocelot's personality slowly began to resurface as the fight progressed, using his signature hand gestures and moves that he remembered from his fight with Big Boss back in 1964. After his defeat, believing that he has succeeded in his plans, Ocelot predicted that, with the Patriots gone and the world would descend into chaos, thus his goal (fulfilling Big Boss "Outer Heaven") was complete. His last words to Snake, now with the Liquid persona fully gone, were: "I am Liquid's doppelganger and you are his..." and "You're pretty good" (the same phrase that Revolver Ocelot said to Solid Snake in 2005 and that Big Boss said to Ocelot in 1964). Immediately afterwards, Ocelot's life was subsequently claimed by the new FOXDIE virus, designed by the Patriots to kill him along with EVA and Big Boss.

After death Edit

Little did Liquid Ocelot realize, however, that Sunny modified the computer worm to prevent the total collapse of civilization he had predicted, as Otacon explained soon after the fight was over. However, despite this, his plan did nonetheless leave America in a position to give up unilateralism as well as many other countries bankrupt from their use of PMCs and in a huge debt over their use of them, to which not even passing laws for regulating the use of PMCs would be enough in regards to paying it off.[22]

Personality and traitsEdit

A cunning operative and an expert marksman, Ocelot was well-known for his prowess in the battlefield as well as his deceitful nature and his penchant for torture. In his younger years, Ocelot originally did not approve of Colonel Volgin's methods of torture during his days as a GRU Major. However, after witnessing Volgin torture Big Boss, he grew to enjoy it and developed a fondness for it; in which he declared that it was "the ultimate form of expression." Due to this experience, he would, in the future, go on to torture many individuals in a similar manner throughout his career as an operative; often with a preference for the application of electrical shocks. Despite being a renowned sadist, he dismissed the word "torture" in reference to his interrogation techniques.[23] Ocelot was also highly intelligent and a fast learner, learning CQC techniques upon observation and using them to fight Big Boss to a stalemate. In addition, he was apparently also one of the few Groznyj Grad personnel to be allowed access to the Groznyj Grad weapons lab's west wing in spite of his being below Colonel-class.[24]

Ocelot (Twin Snakes)

Revolver Ocelot, 2005.

Owing to his deceitful nature, he also was shown to be treacherous when it suited his goals, evidenced where he betrayed Sergei Gurlukovich and Solidus Snake in the Tanker and Big Shell Incidents, respectively. When he was younger, Ocelot pretended to be very patriotic to Russia, likely as a means to further seal his identity as a triple agent, always speaking up in defiance of Volgin's reckless killing of his fellow countrymen. However, he did not enjoy killing the KGB soldiers guarding Sokolov when he first confronted Big Boss, even with his affiliation to GRU, and he looked genuinely shocked when Volgin launched the Davy Crockett at Sokolov's research facility. Despite not actually having loyalty to Russia, Ocelot nonetheless did lament Russia's state after the fall of the Soviet Union.[8]

In addition, his views about the mission to kill The Boss apparently changed. In the aftermath of Operation Snake Eater, while calling the CIA Director regarding the success in The Boss's mission, he seemed satisfied. However, when he next met the Director in late 1970, he declared that he would "take back what [the DCI] stole from [him and his benefactor]" and that "he'll carry the spirit of the true patriot" in reference to The Boss shortly before killing him.

While Ocelot seemingly remained loyal to the Patriots since their founding in 1971, his eventual transformation into Liquid Ocelot, and the reason behind his assuming of such a role, dictated otherwise. Ocelot's loyalties had always been questioned, although EVA stated that his loyalties belonged to Big Boss, treating him as a teacher/mentor as well as a friendly rival. Many of his battle tactics (using a Single Action Army and learning CQC) were adopted from Big Boss's advice and observation of him. This was also the reason why he joined Liquid Snake's FOXHOUND, due to Big Boss's former membership, although this reason was unknown to Liquid himself.[12] Even though they had identical motivations, the exact reason as to why Ocelot intentionally adapted the "Liquid" persona was because he thought that Liquid Snake was the only person who could achieve his goal of true anarchy.[25] He and Liquid believed that by creating a world of chaos (similar to Outer Heaven), everyone would know "the fullness of life," and therefore Liquid's Insurrection would be necessary in order to destroy the Patriots AI, which would obviously undermine this plan. He likened his dream to the "Wild West," referencing his affinity for Spaghetti Westerns. When talking about it later, Big Boss mused that "cats do love to play as snakes."

Liquid Snake suspected that part of the reason Ocelot liked revolvers was due to his sadistic nature: the ammunition's slow velocity allowed it to be imbedded in the body, which required a long time for the body to heal, if the resulting wound could even heal at all.[26] Ocelot also enjoyed the thrill of reloading his Single Action Army in the middle of battle, despite the inherent dangers of doing so. By 2014, Ocelot had discarded the use of his signature revolver, due to the "Liquid" persona. During the 1960s, Ocelot had a habit of using signature hand gestures as a sign of respect or acknowledgement towards others. While the frequency of his use of said hand gestures would dwindle over the years, he would use them again in 2014 to signify his respect towards Solid Snake during their fistfight atop Outer Haven, as well as during his final moments.

Unlike most who either knew about the Patriots or were members of the organization, he did not utilize nanomachines that censored "Patriot" with the phrase "La-Li-Lu-Le-Lo." Although Ocelot lost only his right hand to Gray Fox, he later had his entire arm replaced. In 2009, Ocelot took a hypodermic injection to supposedly prevent Liquid Snake's arm from exerting control over him. During this occasion, his heart seemingly gave two heartbeats, as heard by Raiden, using a directional microphone. By 2014, Ocelot had switched Liquid's arm for a cybernetic prosthesis to restore balance to his psyche.

While discussing his transplanted arm with Solidus Snake, the surgery of which was performed in Lyon, Ocelot mentioned that he "never trust[s] a Frenchman." Ironically, Ocelot was born in Normandy, France, and his preferred method of torture (electrocution) was developed by the French military during the Indochina War, and then used during the Algerian War. It was nicknamed "La Gégène," an abbreviation of Génératrice, which means "Generator." Ocelot's preference to this method is the result of observing Volgin's electrocution torture in Groznyj Grad when he was younger.

Codenames and aliasesEdit

Ocelot was named for the species of wild cat that lives on the American continent, while his real name of Adamska is derived from "Adam."[27] Both alluded to Ocelot's American origins, with "ADAM" being the codename of the NSA defector assigned to meet Naked Snake during Operation Snake Eater. The name "Adam" derives from the Hebrew noun ha adamah meaning "the ground" or "earth," and is the name of the first man in the Book of Genesis from the Hebrew Bible and the Christian Old Testament.

Ocelot's nickname of Shalashaska was derived from Sharashka, which is the name for secret R&D facilities in Soviet labor camps, which he gained from the Mujahideen rebels for his practice of torture during the Soviet Invasion of Afghanistan.

During the Shadow Moses Incident and the Big Shell Incident, Vulcan Raven and Vamp referred to Revolver Ocelot as "General Ivan" and "Crazy Ivan,"[28] respectively, the former saying it to Ocelot directly, to Ocelot's offense.[29] The name Ivan, although a legitimate Russian name, is also an ethnic slur towards Russians or people of Russian descent (as Ocelot was) which was derived from one of Russia's Czars, Ivan IV Vasilyevich, who is known in English as Ivan the Terrible.

Unconfirmed historyEdit

The following information has been detailed in official Konami-licensed media, which were written by various external authors. Therefore, its status in the Metal Gear canon is unconfirmed.[?]

During his time in the Soviet Invasion of Afghanistan, Ocelot was caught in a helicopter crash when his helicopter was shot down by Afghan guerrillas, and he still carries the wound that was inflicted in that skirmish. He also worked alongside Big Boss, while the latter was running his mercenary business in Africa. Ocelot may have received the FOXDIE vaccination.[30]

At some point, prior to joining FOXHOUND, he encountered and worked alongside Psycho Mantis. However, he became distrustful of Mantis due to his inhuman nature, and tried to warn Liquid Snake against trusting him, although Liquid dismissed it as simply being the rivalry typical between ex-Soviet operatives.[31]

At some point between 2005 and 2007, Ocelot, with EVA's help, utilized a prototype device meant for the S3 Plan that was stolen by the latter from the Patriots to begin his attempt at becoming Liquid Ocelot.[32]

Behind the scenesEdit

Metal Gear SolidEdit

Ocelot98

Revolver Ocelot in the E3 1997 trailer of Metal Gear Solid.

The original appearance of Revolver Ocelot (リボルバー・オセロット Riborubā Oserotto?) in Metal Gear Solid was inspired by Western film actor Lee Van Cleef. Requiring a character who could speak about Russia within the main story, director Hideo Kojima made Ocelot of Russian descent.[1] His codename was originally to have been Lynx, though Kojima disliked the sound of it and decided to change it to Ocelot.[1] Ocelot's nickname of Shalashaska (シャラシャーシカ Sharashāshika?) is a corruption of "sharashka." Ocelot's overall spaghetti western design, as well as the character's fascination of the films, were also based on Kojima's own love for the genre, with the 1966 Italian film Django by Director Sergio Corbucci being his favorite spaghetti western.[33]

Because Metal Gear Solid: The Twin Snakes incorporated some gameplay elements from Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty, such as First Person View, the battle against Ocelot was made significantly easier than in the original, where the player had to find out where Ocelot was hiding and then use the sound source to shoot at him. Because of this, some fans, as well as a reviewer for the video game magazine Electronic Gaming Monthly, considered the boss fight to be ruined.

In the post-credits conversation with Solidus Snake in The Twin Snakes, Ocelot claims that he survived due to the FOXDIE vaccine. However, the Metal Gear Solid 4 Database states that it is unknown whether a vaccine even existed.

At one point in Metal Gear Solid, Ocelot says "We're going to launch that nuke and ride it all the way into history", which is a reference to the bomb riding scene in the movie Dr. Strangelove or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb.

Although Gray Fox only cut off Ocelot's right hand, the latter would later have his entire right arm replaced.

Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of LibertyEdit

According to an interview with Yoji Shinkawa, Revolver Ocelot's missing right arm was originally to have been replaced by a mechanical prosthesis for Metal Gear Solid 2. However, it was later decided that Ocelot would instead possess a transplanted arm from Liquid Snake, due to latter's positive reception by fans of the previous game.[34] Originally, Ocelot was to have been unable to bend the fingers of his transplanted arm, but could do so whenever Liquid gained control of his body.

Ocelot's arm transplant was described as having been performed in Lyon, France, which was the location of the world's first hand transplant team. The first successful hand transplant was performed there on September 28, 1998, though the patient later had it amputated, after failing to follow the correct anti-rejection treatment and physical therapy prescribed by his physicians. On January 12, 2000, the first double hand transplant was also performed in Lyon.

In Hideo Kojima's "Grand Game Plan," it was intended that Revolver Ocelot, after boarding Metal Gear RAY on the tanker, would step on Sergei Gurlukovich, rather than shooting him as in the final game. Ocelot was also to have held genuine loyalty to Solidus Snake.

Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake EaterEdit

Ocelot appears as his younger self in the prequel Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater. The defection of NSA code breakers ADAM and EVA, the former of was Ocelot, is based on a real life incident that occurred in September 1960.

Ocelot young

Major Ocelot in Metal Gear Solid 3.

Ocelot's trademark gesture, where he points two fingers as if a gun, was ad-libbed by Kanazawa Tarou, Ocelot's motion capture actor.[35]

The scene where EVA escapes from Ocelot's grip was originally intended to be much longer: EVA jumps down from the platform after kicking Ocelot, and Ocelot jumps down after her. Ocelot grabs her just as she boards her motorcycle, causing Snake to hesitate in pulling the trigger, as he'd risk hitting EVA if he attempted to shoot Ocelot. EVA then hits the accelerator hard and raises it in a similar fashion to a horse and attempts to hit Ocelot with the raised front wheel. Ocelot is hit, but won't let go, with EVA attempting to stand on the raised tire with the struggle continuing. This ultimately was cut from the final version, and was instead replaced with Ocelot falling off the platform after being kicked by EVA.[36]

The cutscene in which close-ups of Ocelot's and Naked Snake's eyes are shown in splitscreen, prior to their duel at Bolshaya Past Crevice, was taken from the TV drama series 24.[37] After the duel with Snake, Ocelot exclaims, "You were lucky! We'll meet again!", the same words that he utters toward Solid Snake under similar circumstances in the original Metal Gear Solid.

The license plate of Ocelot's M-72 motorcycle in Groznyj Grad, which he used to pursue EVA and Naked Snake, was 3756 KOT, the latter characters meaning "cat" in Russian.

Although Ocelot and The Boss's familial relationship can be deduced from the game's storyline, it is not made clear whether the two characters themselves were aware of it.

Metal Gear Solid 3: SubsistenceEdit

Revolver Ocelot was one of six unique characters for the first version of Metal Gear Online, included in Metal Gear Solid 3: Subsistence. His salute was his signature hand gesture, his CQC move was the regular CQC grab and throw technique, and he can only be playable by the highest ranking player, should that player pick the Ocelot Unit as his/her team. In the locker room screen, the player will have the option of choosing the Single Action Army if playing as Ocelot.

Metal Gear Solid: Portable OpsEdit

Some fans had previously speculated that Ocelot was the "deviously cunning strategist" who had planned The Boss's death, whom Gene mentions to Naked Snake in Metal Gear Solid: Portable Ops. This was contributed, in part, by the game's reuse of artwork, which originally depicted Ocelot, though it was obscured by shadow to make it virtually unrecognizable.

Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the PatriotsEdit

In the English version of Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots, Patric Zimmerman (Revolver Ocelot's English voice actor in Metal Gear Solid and Metal Gear Solid 2) voiced Liquid Ocelot. However, the casting for the Japanese version occurred differently due to the death of Kōji Totani (Revolver Ocelot's Japanese voice actor in Metal Gear Solid and Metal Gear Solid 2) in 2006 so Banjo Ginga (Liquid Snake's Japanese voice actor in Metal Gear Solid and Metal Gear Solid 2 as well as Zero's voice actor in Metal Gear Solid 3 and Portable Ops) was therefore cast to voice Liquid Ocelot.

Tumblr m68p3t6EDs1rt0w3ro2 1280

Artwork of Revolver Ocelot for Metal Gear Solid 4.

Ocelot's codename of ADAM was originally intended to be reused for a character in Metal Gear Solid 4, described as a handsome Russian soldier. However, he was cut out of the game early in development along with Snake-Man.

Although Old Snake comes into close proximity of Liquid Ocelot on at least two occasions in Metal Gear Solid 4, the new strain of FOXDIE within Snake did not immediately affect him. It isn't until the Liquid persona vanishes and Ocelot's original personality resurfaces that the FOXDIE kills him.

Despite Ocelot's prominence as a major antagonist and as a boss, all of his battles against the player sans Metal Gear Solid 4 are depicted as being interrupted as immediately shown by the following custcene during both of his respective boss battles in Metal Gear Solid and Metal Gear Solid 3; canonically depicting both outcomes as inconclusive in regards to the actual winner of the fight. It is only in Metal Gear Solid 4 that the player is finally able to canonically defeat Ocelot (albeit as Liquid Ocelot). Before the final battle, Ocelot remarks that he and Snake still had "a score to settle". While potentially referencing Snake and Liquid's rivalry, this statement is also ironically true in regards to Ocelot's previous battles with both Solid Snake and Naked Snake.

Metal Gear Solid: Peace WalkerEdit

Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker is the first Metal Gear Solid title not to feature Ocelot. He is indirectly mentioned in one of EVA's tapes to Big Boss, as the reason behind the assassination of The Sorrow (Ocelot's father) by The Boss (Ocelot's mother) in 1962. He is also indirectly mentioned in Strangelove's tape to Big Boss, regarding The Boss's confession to Strangelove of when she discovered that was pregnant with her child in the middle of a mission. He also was given a subtle reference in the HD version of the game, where his catchphrase, "You're pretty good", was the name of an achievement/trophy issued to players who successfully managed to shoot a soldier in the rear end and instantly down them.

Super Smash Bros. BrawlEdit

In Super Smash Bros. Brawl, during Solid Snake's in-game Codec conversation with Mei Ling regarding Pikachu, Ocelot is briefly mentioned as Snake recounts the famous torture sequence in Metal Gear Solid, implying that the lethality of Pikachu's electric-based attacks falls in comparison to the interrogation he endured at the hands of Ocelot. He also appeared as a sticker, which can only be worn by Ganondorf. Its effects on Ganondorf is increasing his Darkness attacks by 17.

E3 BattleEdit

Revolver Ocelot appeared as a participant in the Konami-sponsored event E3 Battle, where he defeated Twinbee and Winbee from the 1985 game TwinBee in the first round via his military might.[38] Ocelot then faced off against Liquid Snake in the second round, defeating him. He then promptly fought against the Beauty and the Beast Unit in the third round, of whom he finished off. He then proceeded to fight Raiden in the fourth round, only to lose against him.

Major Ocelot's bio.

Revolver Ocelot also appeared in the Android/iOS game Metal Gear Solid: Social Ops, as a character and as several cards. He was also tied with EVA and Raiden with possessing the second most bios on his site (second only to Big Boss himself), detailing his time as a Major in Metal Gear Solid 3 and his time as Liquid Ocelot.

PlayStation All-Star Battle RoyaleEdit

Revolver Ocelot never actually appears in this multi-game crossover between various franchises on the PlayStation systems, but he was alluded to with the 2v2 matches, where one of the names of the lineups is "Revolver Ocelots."

Metal Gear Solid VEdit

Metal Gear Solid V: Ground ZeroesEdit

Although Revolver Ocelot himself does not actually appear within Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes itself, he was given a few voice cameos in the Extra Op mission, Déjà Vu, during the quiz segment nearing the end of the mission.

Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom PainEdit

Ocelot

Ocelot will be the tertiary protagonist of Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain.

On March 27, 2013, in the first official trailer of the game, Ocelot is depicted as encountering Big Boss while riding on horseback. He is depicted as having an aged appearance with gray slick back hair and mustache, while wearing a brown duster jacket, cowboy boots with spurs, red scarf similar to those worn by members of the GRU's Ocelot Unit, and having a revolver on his belt. Ocelot was also shown riding with Big Boss on his horse, while Big Boss is fending himself against a burning apparition resembling the long-deceased Colonel Volgin. Ocelot's identity was later confirmed in the E3 2013 trailer. On June 12, it was officially announced that Troy Baker will provide Ocelot's English voice.[39]

In another trailer, Ocelot is shown interrogating Huey Emmerich and overseeing the interrogation of Quiet.

On March 29, 2014, Ocelot was confirmed to be a Codec contact for the game, marking the first time that Ocelot will be able to be contacted via the Codec.[40] In an interview, Kojima mentioned that Ocelot was going to be a buddy character. However, later, in an interview with Dengeki Online after TGS 2014, he stated that although they planned to have Ocelot be a buddy character, he isn't one at the present. He also mentioned that they haven't decided whether they will make him one by the game's release or not.

GameplayEdit

Metal Gear Solid/The Twin SnakesEdit

Revolver Ocelot Twin Snakes

Revolver Ocelot's depiction in The Twin Snakes.

Prior to the torture scene, Ocelot warns the player not to use auto-fire controls in order to resist, otherwise he will know. Doing so will cause the electrocution to continue onwards after the timer has stopped, disable input from the controller, and will kill the player. The game detects if an auto-fire controller is in use by setting a button-press thresh-hold. If the button-press speed excedes this thresh-hold, the game will automatically assume that the player is using an autofire controller and will trigger the instant death.[41]

Depending on the player's actions during the game, Ocelot will have different dialogue in certain scenes:

  • During the fight against Ocelot, should Snake accidentally kill Kenneth Baker, Ocelot will shout, "You idiot!" during the Game Over sequence.
  • If the player loses to Ocelot too many times, Ocelot will remark that Snake will never live up to the Boss's name (referring to Liquid Snake) post-battle. Likewise, Ocelot will also give a different response when his hand is cut off by Gray Fox.
  • Prior to the torture sequence, if the player hasn't saved in a long time, Ocelot will remark to Snake, "You really wanna travel down that long road again?"
  • If Snake is killed during the torture session, Liquid will berate Ocelot for "doing it again" during the Game Over sequence, with Ocelot apologizing. This is in reference to the supposedly botched torture session with the DARPA Chief.
  • If Snake submits to the torture, Ocelot will remark that Snake is apparently "human" after all, and that he intends to make well of his promise of torturing and killing Meryl if Snake submitted to the torture. He also calls Snake out on his submitting to the torture and placing Meryl in danger.
  • If the player refuses to submit to the torture session in the original PlayStation version, Ocelot reveals that Snake is actually the inferior clone, and that the U.S. President is the third clone known as Solidus, during the post-credits telephone conversation. He also refers to keeping "the woman" under surveillance.

Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake EaterEdit

  • Shooting the markhor during Naked Snake's battle with Ocelot, at Bolshaya Past Crevice, will cause Ocelot to yell, "Son of a bitch!" Also, Ocelot will be overjoyed if the player, during subsequent playthroughs, managed to twirl the SAA, although he will eventually grow impatient if the player keeps it up and eventually shoots you out of irritation.
  • If Snake had any food in his backpack when he was captured by Volgin, EVA will reveal to him that Ocelot stole all of the food and ate it, during an optional radio conversation, after retrieving his gear.[42]
  • A hidden R1 moment in Metal Gear Solid 3 shows Ocelot secretly in attendance during the ceremony where President Johnson awarded Naked Snake with the title of "Big Boss," along with the Distinguished Service Cross. Doing this in the Metal Gear Solid: HD Collection will also earn the player the trophy achievement "The Cat's out of the Bag."
  • If Snake kills Ocelot after he is knocked unconscious in the Virtuous Mission, or during the fight with Colonel Volgin in the Shagohod hangar, a Game Over will occur. Colonel Campbell from the previous games will then berate Snake for causing a Time Paradox: "Snake, what have you done?! You created a Time Paradox!" Performing this in the HD Collection version will also grant the player an achievement/trophy humorously titled "Problem Solved, Series Over." Also, if the player wounds Ocelot during the Virtuous Mission, he'll be wearing a bandage on the wounded area for the rest of the game. During the fight with Volgin, if the player tosses up Rations, Instant Noodles, or Calorie Mates to Ocelot, he'll return the favor by supplying Snake with life medicine and ammunition for the Single Action Army. If the player shakes up Ocelot while he is unconscious during the Virtuous Mission, the player can also procure a mousetrap.
  • In the final duel onboard the WIG had four scenarioes, depending on the actions the player chose: Choose the loaded weapon and shoot Ocelot; Choose the loaded weapon and not shoot Ocelot; Choose the loaded weapon and narrowly miss Ocelot, and choose the unloaded weapon. Ocelot will either take both SAAs after the duel, or, if the player chose the final option, let Snake keep the unloaded SAA. This will also allow the player to use the SAA in subsequent playthroughs.

Metal Gear Solid: Portable Ops recruitmentEdit

In Metal Gear Solid: Portable Ops, the player is given the option to recruit Ocelot. Ocelot is not recruited in the normal manner, but is unlocked after completing the game, in the next playthrough. This section details how the recruitment takes place.

  • After recruiting Sokolov, the player will be informed of a Spy Report from the Silo Entrance that was never actually received. Head to the Silo Entrance and interrogate the Soviet Officer located on top of the bridge area. The Officer will mention "a man with twirling revolvers" who was seen in the Town.
  • A Spy Report from the Town will then be received, regarding a Government Official who prowls around at night time. Head to the Town at nightfall and locate the Government Official in one of the upper buildings. Interrogate him about the "revolver-twirling man," and he will mention that he went to the Airport to visit a friend.
  • Travel to the Airport and interrogate the FOX soldier at the control deck in order to learn the man's radio frequency: 141.23.
  • Recruit EVA (for more information on how to do so, see here).
  • Next, travel to the Ravine and infiltrate its communication building. To do so, find the Key located on the second level of a nearby cave. Enter the building and contact the man's frequency (141.23), who is then revealed to be Ocelot. After the following conversation, proceed to complete the game and Ocelot will be automatically be recruited in the next playthrough.
"Commander of the Ocelot Unit, an elite team of GRU operatives. Received special treatment as the son of a hero, enabling him to reach the rank of major while still a teenager. It was Snake who first suggested that he use a revolver."
