YOUR MEMES... END HERE!
Raiden is a playable character in the Metal Gear video game series and a wrestler in VGCW. Immediately after debuting Raiden was conscripted to be the final member of King Vegeta's Royal Court.
In Metal Gear Edit
During the marketing lead-up for Metal Gear Solid 2 publisher Konami did everything in their power to convince the public that the game's main character would again be Solid Snake. Screenshots, videos and even the demo all featured Snake as the main, playable character. And he was, for the prologue mission. Then a massive switcheroo happened, and instead of the tough and manly Solid Snake the player character for most of the game was Raiden, a whiny, insecure and effeminate counterpart to Snake. This deception greatly upset many fans at the time but nowadays people look back fondly on this incident.
As for Raiden himself? He was a child soldier from Liberia who ended up being taken in by the future president of the United States: George Sears (aka: Solidus Snake). Sears subjected him to a regiment of VR training designed to turn him into a soldier on the same level of Solid Snake. Raiden was put onto the FOX unit and for his first mission sent to the "Big Shell," a large offshore facility where the president had been captured by a rogue special forces unit. From there a lot of nearly incomprehensible stuff happens that's impossible to concisely explain. The gist of it is that Raiden meets up with Solid Snake and the two of them stop Solidus Snake and a rouge AI known as the Patriots from memeing too hard.
Raiden would return in MGS4 as an advanced cyborg, having been captured and experimented on by the Patriots. With the Patriots finally defeated Raiden finally had the chance at a normal life.
But fuck that shit Konami's gotta make money. So Raiden gets brought back for his own game again; Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance. In MGR Raiden has to stop a rogue company of cyborg mercenaries from destabilizing the world, sending it back into a state of perpetual war. Raiden goes full on insane killer in this game, and also fully embraces memes as well.
Season 12/13 Edit
Raiden debuted in the manner that everyone had wanted him to for the past three years, by stealing Snake's entrance. His first match against Layton was a hard-fought but earned victory, with Layton getting pin happy in the final minutes allowing Raiden to turn the momentum against him.
