Just HAD to do another follow up to the Snake piece. After all, whats MGS without its ensemble cast of unique characters besides Snake?

"I am Lightning, the rain transformed."

'Raiden'; 'Metal Gear' is copyright 2008 Konami

First of all, Raiden is fully mechanical from his top jaw down to his feet. Only his nose, eyes, and brain are at least partially human. He's also a "full-cyborg".

Raiden can essentially freeze time and can precisely choose where he slices. He's insanely good with a sword - he fought 10+ enemies wielding the sword with his teeth. Plus, as an added badass-bonus, he literally feeds on the energy of other cyborgs by ripping out their spines and crushing it over his face.

Genji? What, he can throw shurikens that deal like 28 damage, double jump, climb walls, dash in and out of combat, and occasionally pulls out his sword to kill enemies once his ult meter gets to 100%.

Obviously, Raiden is better

With their lives on the line

Gotta follow the laws of the wild
