Metal Gear REX plays a pivotal role in all Metal Gear installations and is arguably the most iconic item in the series. The primary purpose of this human machine – specifically the electromagnetic gun mounted on his shoulder – is to launch nuclear missiles from anywhere in the world without the need for a missile propulsion system, and with less radar detection than any other nuclear weapon worldwide.

This ability to disrupt global power dynamics (as seen in the canonical story), is exactly why protagonist Solid Snake is tasked with infiltrating military bases and neutralizing REX’s formidable weaponry throughout the series.

In addition, Ouran shows a clear passion for mecha anime in general, as evidenced by their creation of Flaming fire hand Which pays homage to the popular Gundam G series and its hero, Domon Kasshu’s famous flashy finger move.

Unlike Metal Gear REX, the Shagohod had limited mobility and lacked the distinctive bipedal design, making it similar to its predecessor Metal Gear. Notably, Shagohod appears in Metal Gear Solid 3, adding a strange coincidence to his creation along with the recent reveal of the remake.
