Character from Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty, Metal Gear Solid 2: Substance (special edition version of SoL) and Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots.
On of the most under-rated characters from a western standpoint. Hated by immature little kids who whined that he was "gay" despite having a girlfriend. Also, these people were desperate to play as the more manly Snake, which makes their sexuality questionable.
In MGS4 he's taken over the role of the game's "Cyborg Ninja", and is apparently no more than a head and spine kept alive in a special exoskeleton.
Generally he's a pretty good character. Personally, I didn't hate him at all in MGS2. I was surprised to suddenly be playing as him but I was mature enough not to throw my toys out the pram because it wasn't "my spweshial snake!"
Whiner: Waaahhh, Raiden's so gay, I wanna play as Snake!
Me: If he's gay how did he get a girl pregnant and why did he show no signs of having a romantic interest in men?
Whiner: He has long hair.
