Big Boss was the codename of the legendary soldier who founded the U.S. Army Special Forces Unit, FOXHOUND. He was also the founder and commander of Militaires Sans Frontières, the "soldiers without borders," which led to the creation of Outer Heaven in South Africa. Big Boss later helped the small nation of Zanzibar Land achieve independence in Central Asia, becoming its head of state. Big Boss was considered by many to be "The Greatest Warrior of the 20th Century" and a brilliant military leader and was hailed as a war hero by admirers and feared as a tyrant by his enemies. As a result of the Les Enfants Terribles project, he was the genetic father of Solid Snake (his subordinate and later nemesis), Liquid Snake and Solidus Snake.
Prior to earning the codename of Big Boss, he served as a field operative for the CIA black ops unit FOX (Force Operation X) which was founded by Zero and the apprentice of The Boss under the codename of Naked Snake during the Cold War.
Battle vs. General Shepherd (by Omnicube1)Edit
In an Arabian country, General Shepherd is sitting in his Humvee dispatching orders to his private army, Shadow Company. He takes out his M4A1 and takes it apart and cleans it. He looks up and sees Big Boss wielding a Patriot rifle. Big Boss raises his weapon and releases a shower of bullets at the General, who takes cover behind the dashboard. He quickly pieces together his M4 and fires back. BB craftily dodges the bullets and changes magazines. The General runs for the nearby hills. He takes out his WA2000 and waits for his enemy to pop up. He immediately targets Big Boss and fires his sniper rifle. Two rounds graze BB's arm and chest. Boss swaps his Patriot for the Dragunov SVD. He shoots his Russian rifle at Shepherd. One bullet hits Shepherd's hat causing it to fall off. He picks up his hat and discovers a large bullet hole in it. He throws it away in disgust and pulls out his .44 Magnum Revolver and makes his way down. Boss drops his Dragunov and takes out his M1911 pistol and Stun Knife. Shepherd fires his revolver but misses. Big Boss fires back but also misses. The two warriors run out of ammo and prepare to engage each other in hand-to-hand combat. Shepherd pulls out his knife and charges toward BB. Boss also runs toward Shepherd and the two battle each other with fists and knives. Shepherd punches BB in the stomach and slashes at him. His Combat knife, however, only cuts Boss' uniform. BB then knees Shepherd in the groin three times and stuns him with his specialized knife. While on the floor, he trips Big Boss and stabs his Combat Knife into BB's stomach. Shepherd stands up and spits on his enemy and walks away. BB is still alive! He whispers, "Shepherd." The General turns around and discovers that BB has pulled the Combat Knife out of his stomach! Boss then throws the knife at Shepherd and the blade cuts right through his left eyeball and the General falls to the ground dead.
