    The MGS games emphasise subterfuge and the importance of maintaining the body's health which seems more SLI-like than SLE. I think LSI would be more likely than SLE for Solid Snake.

    I'm currently going through the entire series in the lead up to MGSV.

    I always thought Solid Snake was LSI, Liquid Snake EIE, Solidus LIE, and Big Boss SLE.

    Other recurring characters? Otacon: ILI; Revolver Ocelot: ???; Colonel Campbell: LSE; Raiden: too much Matthew Broderick for me.

    Hideo Kojima, the creator of the game series, somehow strikes me as ILE.

    I've been playing through TPP and am in physical pain as a result. What an incredibly beautiful and heartbreaking series.

    I agree that MGS1 Solid Snake is very SLE, but taking into account all subsequent games, these are my thoughts:

    Big Boss - LSI
    The Boss - IEI
    EVA - EIE
    Kazuhira Miller - EIE, although I understand his functional role in Mother Base doesn't really reflect this. LIE is also possible but not my interpretation of him. Based on PW I see him and Big Boss as an intentional parallel to Castro (EIE) and Che Guevara (LSI).
    Ocelot - EIE? SLE? His characterisation in MGS3 and then MGS1/5 are so different that it's hard to tell. He starts out very intense and single-minded but later on he becomes this really mild, opportunistic, highly intuitive character. It's not a change that I can reconcile with time and added experience.
    Paz - IEI
    Huey - LII
    Quiet - SLI or ESI

    Solid Snake - SLI or ILI
    Liquid - EIE
    Otacon - LII
    Raiden - ?????

    Hideo Kojima strikes me as ILI. Ni out the whazoo in TPP - everything both consequential and inconsequential ties back to a single symbol. MGS1 and MGS2 have a heavy tell over show element and are heavy-handed predictions of the future, first about the dawn of the Human Genome project and second about the dawn of the information age.

    Edited to add more characters and more thoughts!
