The Amadeus Syndicate are the main antagonists of Metal Slug 4.


The Amadeus Syndicate is a highly technological advanced paramilitary organization and rogue scientific corporation affiliated with the Rebel Army. Their goals are idealistic in nature and center about better understanding the forces that govern the universe, no matter the cost. To do so free from legal constraints they rely on Morden's resources and alliance to test out their prototypes and conduct experiments.

The Amadeus Syndicate is made up of unethical scientists, Rebels and mercenaries. Due to Metal Slug 4 reusing weapons and infantry from other armies, it appears as a small rogue organization. The Syndicate is in the Independent Faction in Metal Slug Defense and Metal Slug Attack because of this, although the latter game expands their forces with new members and tech.


Metal Slug 4

With the money the Amadeus Syndicate were able to obtain from their banks around the world, they became a very rich company. Their leader, the tentatively named Doctor, was a friend of Morden, and when the Rebel Army lost their funding and was utterly defeated a third time (after the events of Metal Slug 6) the Syndicate helped them by supplying the Rebel Army with more mercenary troops, advanced weapons, and vehicles.

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

Metal Slug Attack

In Metal Slug Attack, the Syndicate's forces have been expanded and now sport a violet and gray motif. Since Regular Army soldiers make an appearance in the game (who also sport blue uniforms, which were used in Metal Slug 4 by the Syndicate, albeit a darker hue), most Syndicate members now wear a violet uniform. The Syndicate also developed numerous robots and machines based off the Rebel Army's designs with a few modifications to them. They are still on good terms with the Rebel Army and provide them with new equipment from time to time.


Amadeus troops consist of infantry, advanced combat robots, and AI. Soldiers who work directly with the Syndicate only have two main uniform colors: purple and navy blue.
