There's Metal Gear Solid Hiding In This Week's My Little Pony

There's Metal Gear Solid Hiding In This Week's My Little Pony

Apparently Snake's box hiding trick isn't as fool-proof as we thought. Even Metal Gear Solid creator Hideo Kojima managed to spot it.

It's no secret the makers of My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic love their video game references, like last year's BioShock Infinite Easter egg. And this isn't the first time Metal Gear Solid has received some pony love — the 20th episode of Season Two saw Twilight Sparkle dressed up in a stealth suit, eye patch and headband. She even recreated Snake's "I'm a statue!" moment from Guns of the Patriots.

While this latest Easter egg might not be the most exciting video game reference in series history, it might be one of the most apropos — the guy popping out of the box is Discord (voiced by John de Lancie), which aptly describes the current situation with Metal Gear Solid publisher Konami.

Thanks to good old Arniejolt for pointing out the reference for me — I'm so behind I didn't even know season five had started.

    I don't watch this show, but I can certainly appreciate a good vidya game easter egg.

     I’m so behind I didn’t even know season five had started.
    And that is nothing to be ashamed of... Unless you are a bronie, then I assume you've thrown away your dignity long ago.

      Hmm, unless you are "an otaku", then I assume you 've thrown away your dignity long ago!

    That episode had a lot of references.

    Honest question: Can someone explain to me the appeal of My Little Pony for grown-up men? I find their fascination just plain weird and grossly immature.

      The show has been created with elements of old Cartoon shows and a mix of content all ages can enjoy. Its not the MLP you would see back in the day, its more a goofy and fun to watch Cartoon show in the likes of Adventure Time, the Power Puff girls and more...just set with Ponies as the main characters.
