Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots spoilers


Naomi Hunter was alive at the end of the game.


I think she faked her death, the cancer was a cover story, and the syringe bit was serious overacting to sell the idea she died. Nobody ever confirms she really had cancer as she clamed, and it fits her character perfectly to be deceptive in that manner. Also keeping in mind she’s responsible for the nanomachine issues, and Ocelot abducting her from jail proves she’d be at risk of being used like that again (whether by a government or some group) her whole life if people knew she was alive.


I found this beautiful piece in which I take no credit for it.

I would have assumed this is Lorna Dane with Bobby Drake and Alex Summers. Two gentlemen that always fight over Polaris. I guess Havok and Iceman would get to share the woman they love deeply for the first time. They just can’t get over her (canon speaking). I mean wow, look at this beautiful, gorgeous, and marvelous green hair mistress of Lorna Dane a.k.a Polaris. No-wonder they’d die for her.

*shoves eyes back into eye sockets*

Ahem. That is an excellent piece of work, thanks for posting!

Now, that said, a Google Reverse Image Search brings up this result suggesting it’s supposed to be Metal Gear fanart from 2005. If that’s true, left would be Solid Snake, right would be Liquid Snake, and middle would probably be Sniper Wolf.

However, since I don’t have anything absolutely confirming this at the moment, and I’d like to pretend this is Lorna, I’m going to tag it as Lorna and continue to act like it is. 🙂


Naomi Hunter did not die in Metal Gear Solid 4.
Nano machines can like heal Vamp after being shot a million times but can’t cure cancer???
Bullshit she’s alive and was lying about cancer cause she knew Snake and Otacon would believe her.

I always thought she faked her death so no groups would continue trying to use her for their own ends, and that most people didn’t consider that likelihood because they didn’t want to really put much thought into Naomi as a character.
