Menace Out of the Skies is the thirty-fifth mission in Metal Slug: 2nd Mission. One prisoner exists in this stage.
Gimlet boards the Slug Flyer and flies over a Rebel base to reach the Rebel Fortress. While still going to the same destination as Gimlet, Red Eye takes a wrong Slug again. As the final Slug Flyer mission, all enemies are more aggressive than usual. The mission ends with a fight with the Rebel Airplane.
Destruction of the Slug Flyer instantly ends the mission and is considered Incomplete. If this occurs during the boss fight, then a Game Over occurs.
|Success! I’m at the checkpoint now & sank the enemy. Things are hopping here. Is something underway?|
|Secret Rebel Base site is confirmed. Nearby squads are to unite there.|
|Roger! I’m heading there in Slug Flyer!|
|Hold on! The flyer must go to the fortress directly.|
|I’ve landed! What! Hey, this is a government base! A whole rebel base has defected? No one told me about this news!|
|You idiot! You hothead! This Slug Sub you got into… is the #2 sub to the wrong base. While you were enjoying a cruise, a formal attack came through, from IHQ against the Rebel base. Now head for the meeting point. Use the Slug Flyer there! And no mistakes!|
|Whoa boy, did I get scolded good. If it’s #2, then say #2. Really! Tell me what’s what beforehand! I understand. No more mistakes. Now, to take…… the #1 flyer to the meeting point.|
|Wait, fool! It’s #2! Take #2! Red Eye! Red Eye!|
