Trivia[edit]

  • The artwork used to represent Gray Fox is not actually him, but Raiden in the Gray Fox DLC costume from Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance.
  • The artwork used for EVA's spirit is slightly altered from her original appearance. She originally wore an open jumpsuit that exposed a black bikini top, which is covered up in the artwork by positioning her hand in front of her chest and adding clothing to cover her torso. This was likely done to avoid raising the game's age rating, as Metal Gear Solid 3 has a higher age rating than Super Smash Bros. Ultimate in all regions.
