Metal Gear Solid (PlayStation)/Unused Sounds

From The Cutting Room Floor
Jump to navigation Jump to search

This is a sub-page of Metal Gear Solid (PlayStation).

To do:
Check what's unused on the Japanese version.


Snake himself has a few unused lines, or at least takes of them.

Dialogue Context
A shorter death growl.
"No good." Snake says "It's no good" during the Liquid and Grey Fox fights, though.
"Huh?", with a higher intonation than the three used ones.
A fifth "Huh?", this one abbreviated.

Liquid Snake

Some taunts for Snake that, for some reason, went unused:

Dialog Context
"How could you be Big Boss' son?"
"Come here Snake. Be a man."
"You don't want to save the girl!?"
"Get up"
"I'm here. Come and get me."
(without intercom) "That was nothing!"
Liquid during the Hind fight yelling "eat this!"
(v.a. intercom): "Fool..."
"Look! There's no time."

There's also a very slightly different "You're out of time" take for the final fight:

Used Unused

And a bunch of unused... laughs. Odd.


Gray Fox

Kawanishi-Noseguchi, Kinunobebashi, Takiyama, Uguisunomori, Tsuzumigataki, Tada, Hirano, Ichinotorii, Uneno, Yamashita, Sasabe, Kofudai, Tokiwadai, Myokenguchi

These words are apparently train stations of the Myōken Line in the Kansai region of Honshū, Japan. Technically these aren't unused, but individual names from this list are mixed in with other sounds and played in a distorted manner when you reach the corridor of death outside Otacon's Lab. In Metal Gear Solid 2, the Colonel AI says these Japanese names in a codec call during the Arsenal Gear portion, and Sunny sings these names while trying to cook eggs in the briefing for Act 4 in Metal Gear Solid 4.

He also has some unused taunts and other insults for the boss fight:

Dialogue Context
"How is it?"
"It's useless!"
"Oh yes!"
"You fool!"
"Where are you looking?"

Revolver Ocelot

"Nice going, hero", presumably meant to be used during the fight with Ocelot. Possibly if you hurt Baker in some way.

Psycho Mantis

"I cannot see!" Ocelot says this if you use stun grenades during his fight, but all Mantis says for stun grenades is "It's useless" (what he says for the usage of all non-gun weapons).

Vulcan Raven

Dialogue Context
An in-battle cry of "Snake!"
"There you are...!"
"Here you are...!"
"Come out!"
Raven's growl
Even more grunts from Raven


Campbell had a slightly less grave warning for the Warhead Storage Facility:

Used Unused
Dialogue Context
"To climb up and down, press the action button."
And again

Mei Ling

Dialogue Context
Probably not unused, but likely seldom heard: Mei-Ling fails to save because "some kind of error" occurred.
"I sometimes have to get up for a moment to adjust the radar and codec systems, meaning you won't be able to save for a bit. Sorry!"


Dialogue Context
Otacon has two melee pain noises on Disc 1, but he's never in a position to be hurt.
Otacon being severely out of breath.


Dialogue Context
(Moaning): "Snake."

Snake: "Damn it! Meryl."

A distressed Meryl crying out "Snake!"
A slightly higher-pitched version of the previous clip.


Liquid cries "Eat this!" during the Hind fight, but regular guards never do.

Truck Driver

There's dialog for a truck driver mentioning a scrapped fourth cardboard box's destination to where the canyon where Snake fights against Vulcan Raven's tank. "The canyon, huh?"

Restored Sounds

To do:
Write more specific descriptions for each video

Even though the scripts for playing some of the audio clips were deleted, they can still be accessed and have exclusive lip-sync data and subtitles attached to them. These can be viewed by accessing the game's sound test, forcing them into the game, or rewriting the scripts from the ground up. Some are presented here, restored in their intended use, with appropriate translation.

Mei Ling


Revolver Ocelot
