Type Name Damage Description
Neutral (3% = punch 1, 4% = punch 2, 7% = spin kick, 11% = total). Snake punches twice, then performs a spinkick. The final kick has high knockback, being able

to KO at high percentages, but can be powershielded depending on the character, even if the combo is done as fast as possible. Based off the attack combo from Metal Gear Solid and Metal Gear Solid 2.

Forward Tilt (8% = hit 1, 9% = hit 2 body, 10% = body sourspot, 12% = body sweetspot). Snake does a knee-thrust forward, if the attack button is pressed again, he will follow up

with an overhead swing of both arms on grounded opponents, the first hit is a weak meteor smash with set knockback, which allows Snake to link the opponent into the second hit, this move is seen during a cutscene in Metal Gear Solid: Twin Snakes when Snake fights Gray Fox.

Up Tilt (13% = early, 11% = clean, 8% = late). Snake quickly kicks his leg upwards. Deceivingly large range. Has good KO potential

at damages over 80%. Notable for having an invisible, disjointed hitbox that knocks opponents vertically, one of the strongest up tilts in the game.

Down Tilt (10%) does a low spin kick while prone. Deals strong vertical knockback, having KO potential on most characters at 120% and up,
Forward Smash (22%) Snake takes out an RPG-7 rocket launcher and aims it at the ground directly in front of himself,

causing a huge explosion, it has very slow startup but deals immense knockback when it hits.

Up Smash (5% = startup, 10% = mortar, 15% = total). Slams a mortar in front of himself and fires a shell into the air, the movement of the shell

is almost entirely vertical, but there is a small amount of random horizontal momenentum charging the up smash does not increase its power, but it increases the speed at which the shell is fired, making it go higher. When fully charged, it travels great distances, almost the entire height of the 'large' stage builder area, making it have by far the greatest vertical reach of any attack. The shell explodes if it makes contact with a ceiling, an opponent, a wall or the ground no matter what direction it's moving in, slamming down the mortar has a hitbox that produces very weak vertical knockback that knocks opponents into the mortar's line of fire, oddly enough, the shell does not break blocks in the SSE, but yanking the mortar out does.

Down Smash (14%) Starts digging a hole in the ground and places a claymore inside, a short while after planting the claymore, it becomes active, and will detonate if anyone (including Snake) steps on it, if the platform the claymore is set on disappears (such as on Rainbow Cruise or Delfino Plaza) the claymore falls down and if it makes contact with anything, even the ground, it explodes, Snake can't plant more than one claymore at a time, but it can be moved by using the attack again,which removes it from its previous position and plants it at Snake's current position, after a while, or if Snake gets KO'd, the claymore will vanish.

Aerial Attacks

Type Name Damage Description
Neutral (6% = hit 1, 5% = hit 2, 4% = hit 3, 13% = hit 4, 28% = total/all hits connect). Snake performs four kicks in quick succession, overall, the move has a fairly long duration with high ending and landing lag, making it unwieldy and easily punishable, while it is difficult to land all four kicks on a grounded opponent, the fourth kick has very high horizontal knockback if it hits,one of the most damaging neutral aerials in the game if all four hits connect, dealing 28% total.
Forward (13% = body, 15% = leg). Lifts his left leg over his head and axe-drops it down. Has slow start-up and high ending lag,

but it is a very powerful meteor smash with great vertical and horizontal reach, connection with the leg results in very powerful vertical knockback that can star KO opponents over 100%.

Back (14% = clean, 10% = late). Snake extends both his legs out behind him, planking in the air. Has fairly fast start-up along with good reach and very high horizontal knockback when sweetspotted. While it has high ending lag like his other aerials, Snake's back aerial never auto-cancels, unlike his other aerials, so it is very punishable if it misses. Has sex kick properties.
Up (12% = clean, 10% = late) Thrusts both his legs straight upwards, similar to his back aerial. Has fairly fast start-up with good vertical reach and powerful vertical knockback, but has considerable ending lag, like the rest of Snake's aerials, the move is useful for star KOing airborne opponents that are above 100%.
Down (6% = hit 1, 5% = hits 2-3, 12% = hit 4, 28% = total/all hits connect). Snake launches four subsequent kicks below himself, gas high lag and the last hit deals high horizontal knockback,also considered one of the strongest aerials in the game if all four hits connect, dealing 28% total, just like his neutral aerial.
