>Naomi is half-Japanese
>Snake is half-Japanese
>Liquid is half-Japanese
>Kazuhira is half-Japanese
What is with being half-Japanese in this universe?
Japanese can't relate to non-Japanese characters, they go autistic in trying.
Also, is Naomi really part Japanese?
>tfw you will never be half-teuton/half-japanese master race
Because race is a social construct, so saying "half-Japanese" is scientifically incorrect. They are not half-anything, they are full human. "Japanese" is a meaningless idea from an outdated paradigm.
when the portugese merchants started coming over in the 1500s they realized aryans were the master race and were immediately obsessed with the aryan woman, or "blondies" as they call them
eva isnt chinese she is from america -
she is just a chinese spy
Kojima was clearly inspired by western action movies, like Escape from New York, or L.A, whichever one. So naturally, the main characters are white, but as to avoid alienating the Japanese, he makes most of them half-Japanese, obviously.
It's not that hard, folks.
Although incredibly rare, there are asians with blonde hair and blue eyes or that at least carry the genes. Most are Mongolian or central asian though. It's even rarer in Japan, but it happens every now and again
Genghis Khan himself had red hair and green eyes, according to both Chinese and Persian sources
Asuka is a quarter Japanese, which is the minimum quota if you do not want the character to be classified as westaboo bait by the government, in which case they have to chomp cigars, shot full-auto machine guns, eat tons of burgers and swear at everyone constantly.
Japan does that shit all the time.
Ann in Persona 5 is basically a white chick, yet they say she's 3/4ths Japanese.
No wonder he fought in the Korean war.
because eurasians are the true master race.
if only white and asian people lived in this space rock we would have already discovered all the universe's secrets
BUT NO, destiny likes to toy with us so they created NIGGERS to hold back everyone down.
I wonder who could've written this.
Because Kojima is a fucking hack and needs to self-insert.
DURR everyone needs to be Japanese and needs to quote David Bowie lyrics out of context because I like him. Manchild-tier writing
don't forget Grey Fox is half Vietnamese
but its to better market to Japanese audiences, in fear they wouldn't play a game that isn't about a Japanese person. pretty sure Snake and Liquid got retconned to being full white though
>not a single arab MGS character
Anime is wish fulfillment, and one of the biggest dreams of any gook is to fuck a white woman.
>Whites want to fuck Jap women
>This is coming from a nignog
What does you being a nigger have anything to do with anything?
Stop parading around your skin colour as an excuse to do or not do things.
american, liberal arts student, middle/upper-class, WASP
I kind of wish they retconned the whole half-Japanese heritage bullshit for Snake and Liquid and instead just came out and said EVA was the real biological mother this whole time and the Japanese test subject was just a ruse.
Fuck off tumblr go back to your safe space or whatever.
and if we're fucking race carding like the nignog >>315335917 I'm a mixed race jew including a first nations group that is literally defined on the basis of mixed blood (Métis).
they fucked off to hawaii after being put into camps on the mainland
>half the games repeatedly say "your genes don't decide who you are"
>except the bred war soldiers are war soldiers, every important character is related to some other important character and most everyone is obsessed with their racial background
Getting mixed messages here.
The only Chinese work in the... Chinese buffets, as always. Other than that, the only Asians around here are Korans because something about the military influence 40 years ago I don't know. I don't know the full detail, but it is related to being near a military base.
No it doesn't. Snake is still a clone bred for war. He goes on to wage war for his entire life. Liquid is the "superior" clone, which probably explains why he manages to survive so many bullets to the fucking sternum while Snake dies in a solid 4.
Metal Gear Solid's points about genes not deciding who you are are bullshit. The most you could say it applies to is FoxDie, but even that managed to turn Snake into a living carrier of death in MGS4.
Come to think of it, that's where Kekai Kotaki is from. How bout that shit.
Got no problems finding Chinese here. I'm half Chinese-Malay myself. Got whole streets for them here in St. Louis.
Ok, stop. Yes, kojima wanted to shoe horn in being Japanese as a thing in his games.
He's fucking japanese. Of course he and his staff want some type of relatable ethnicity to a character. We do it all the time with fucking remakes.
> major MAKOTO KUSANAGI
> Scarlett Johansen
Anyways, the "snake is japanese" thing has been on a slow decline with each game.
> MGS, big boss is revealed to be born in hawaii, 1/3rd japanese.
> David's surrogate mom is japanese
Fast forward to mgs3
> No mention of big boss ethnicity or birth, guidebooks place his ethnicity as Caucasian, nationality american.
> snakes mom is eva, a full blonde American woman who spies for china. Only the egg is japanese, the DNA comes completely from john.
face modeled after Sutherland and mo capped. No mention of japanese heritage in anything.
Except Kaz. I think kojima took his Westaboo desires and made Kaz in his image. Kaz was full fucking japanese in mg2, and snake was Mel Gibson.
>recessive is bad
No no no, that was just Liquid not understanding how genes work! Kojima of course knew all along that that was stupid, he was just illustrating that Liquid has a shit education, which we can see in MGSV! Kojima is an true master.
Metal Gear 2 was the first game to bring up any Japanese heritage for Snake and they brought that shit up in MGS1. It's one of the few shit from the MSX games that hasn't been retconned.
It's really hard to believe that given it's history of isolation and the fact that non-blood Japanese can have citizenship. You could be born in the country, your parents could be born there, and be say, French, but you won't have citizenship.
>Have they actually retconned anything in the MSX games, though?
Gray Fox's entire Vietnamese war orphan origin story for one thing and Big Boss being part-bioroid in Metal Gear 2 (now that they established that he had a body double).
>Hell, the whole of MGSV leads up to a patch for a plot hole in MG1.
Honestly, Venom (and the entirety ofPW and MGSV) creates more plot holes than it fixes.
Because they want an in-universe excuse for the characters to to look cloned and samey.
>Lilly still the best
That's all anyone cares about.
