Shadow Moses Island

Shadow Moses Island is a default stage in the game Super Smash Bros. Brawl. It is from the first Metal Gear Solid game, and acts as Solid Snake's home stage. The walls on either side can be destroyed with normal attacks, allowing for players to be launched out of the screen from the sides and lose a life.

If 15 matches are played here, Snake will challenge the player. If he is defeated, he will be unlocked.

On this stage, Snake can use his codec to get information about his opponents from Otacon, the Colonel, Mei Ling and (if Falco is being faced) Slippy Toad. He can trigger the conversations with a taunt. They have no influence on the actual battle.

The Metal Gear RAY, Metal Gear REX or two GEKKO may appear in the background of the stage, but they do not affect gameplay, although in very rare occasions they can affect or damage a player.

The unlock match for Snake takes place here.

Shadow Moses Island is set to reappear in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate.[1]

  • A spotlight aims around, and if it catches a player, it leaves an ! mark above the player. Like in the Metal Gear Solid games, Snake does not get a sign if he is in a box from his taunt.
