Hilde Garn is the main antagonist and final boss of Metal Slug: 1st Mission.
This warrior is an expert at guerrilla warfare and is the key target of the 1st mission. He's gathered an arsenal of weapons in secret and is believed to be the ringleader behind the mysterious activities taking place in the Rebel Army and has even had a hand in the development of new weapons.
Hilde Garn has a heavy resemblance to Donald Morden (complete with an eyepatch). Once the hat is taken off, however, he has a bald spot that stands out.
He appears in the game's final mission patrolling the Facility Elevator and the Rebel Truck. Inside the Rebel Truck is a large, personalized Slug. The Metal Strider is armed with Vulcan cannons, shoulder-mounted homing missile launchers, and is able to perform the Metal Slug Attack without self-destructing.
The fight with Hilde Garn in his Metal Strider takes place in the skies on the Rebel Zeppelin. After the Hero disposes of the Metal Strider, Hilde Garn falls to his apparent death. The Metal Strider shows up again in Metal Slug: 2nd Mission but not the man himself.
