The Amadeus Syndicate serve as the main antagonists of Metal Slug 4. With the money they were able to obtain from their banks around the world, they became a very rich company. Their leader, Amadeus, was a friend of Morden, and when the Rebel Army lost their funding (after the events of Metal Slug 6) the Syndicate helped them by supplying the Rebel Army with more troops, weapons, and vehicles.

The corporation was destroyed during at the end of the White Baby Crisis, where the Regular Army infiltrated their headquarters and defeated Amadeus, causing the base to self-destruct.

The Amadeus Syndicate appears as a small organization due to the game reusing weapons and infantry from other armies. The Syndicate is in the Independent Faction in Metal Slug Defense and Metal Slug Attack because of this.

In Metal Slug Attack, the Syndicate's forces has been expanded and now sport a violet and gray motif. Infantry's uniforms are colored purple to contrast the Regular Soldiers' blue uniforms. The Syndicate are still in good terms with the Rebel Army.


Amadeus Infantry: They rappel down from the ceilings and are generally better equipped than their green counterparts. They may be some kind of Special Forces unit, or honor guards.

Elite Grenadier
Amadeus Grenadier: Same as the rebel soldiers.

Amadeus Rifleman: In the Amadeus Syndicate's blue uniform. In Metal Slug Attack, they can rapid-fire while crouching, and their projectiles travel at a very long range.

Elite Riot-Shield Soldier
Amadeus Shielded: Soldier in blue uniform. In Metal Slug Attack, they use purple uniforms and have a high chance of knocking back the enemy.

AR-10 MG Infantry/Amadeus Corporal: Armed with 7,62mm AR-10 Autorifle, they are the elite legion of the Amadeus Syndicate. Some of them have the honor to serve as personal guards of Amadeus. They are very dangerous in comparison to other infantry. In Metal Slug Attack, they are capable of crouching for better firing and accuracy
