The Announcers are off-screen characters in the Metal Slug series.

Information

The Announcer provides information on what's going on screen such as collecting an item, entering a new mission, or a player's status. Most of the time they'll yell in an exaggerated manner often humorously mispronouncing words (e.g. "Rock-it Lawnchair" or "Mow-bee-al Sat-tall-light").

As new weapons and characters are introduced in the series, a new announcer will voice them. Bits and pieces of previous announcers are sometimes heard in newer games.

Voice Clips

Below are a list of lines each announcer shouts. Those with a [U] are unused. Since their voice actors are unknown, they'll be referred by ordinal numbers:

Metal Slug: 2nd Mission

The announcer in Metal Slug: 2nd Mission is different from the others due to using a different weapon set. His voice clips include the following:

Line Audio
"Metal Slug: 2nd Mission!"
"Heavy Machine Gun!"
"Rocket Launcher!"
"Grenade Gun!"
"Shotgun!"
"Bazooka!"
"Fire Gun!"
"Missile Pod!"
"Pineapple!"
"Missiles!"

Note that having the announcer on causes the music to start over anytime he speaks.

Trivia

  • The first announcer also provides the voice for the golfers in Neo Turf Masters, another game by Nazca Corporation in association with SNK.
  • In Metal Slug 4, the second announcer's voice is sometimes slowed down. In Metal Slug Advance, his voice is sped up.
  • Only in the Xbox 360/Xbox One versions of Metal Slug XX does the 4th announcer shout the Final Mission. In any other version, it is instead shouted by the 3rd announcer.
  • Metal Slug 4 and Metal Slug 5 both split the sound effects into separate sound files (for example, the gun cocking sound before the weapon name and "Mission" "3" "Start"). Metal Slug 4 has an unused "Six" announcer clip (S.E Set: 186F) not found in previous games. Putting the sound clips together gives this:
