A webcomic written and drawn (in paint) by Chris Doucette on his
website Gigaville. It acts as a prequal to the game Metal Gear
Solid and portrays the activities of Foxhound (the antagonists of
the game), based on cannon material with the author's imagination
filling in the gaps.
The character Decoy Octopus
recieves much more "screen time" in the comic than in the game it
is based on. His main ability is to transform into others (the
process isn't explained fully, but it seems to involve drinking
their blood), indeed he does not appear to have a real form. He
initially mimics Revolver Ocelot
, then at the end of the first story arc...

He later impersonates the unit's female sniper, Sniper Wolf
, in order to take her place in a hostage situation. After running
out of the blood he obtained in the aformentioned first arc he
continues to dupe Ocelot and Liquid Snake
, wearing a fedora hat to avoid confusion. He also mimics several
characters from other webcomics and (in a flashback) Wolf's
In addition to this the character Psycho Mantis is a powerful (yet
insane and violent) psychic who often mind controls others
(although he does not directly possess them).
Finally the strip's main character, Liquid Snake
is possessed by his dead "father" Big Boss
. As this is only possible because Liquid is a clone of Big Boss
and thus his body is, technically, his; Octopus is forced to
transform into Liquid in order to allow him to be possessed by the
later and face BB down.
