The Metal Strider[1][2] is a Rebel-made Super Vehicle. It serves as the final boss for Metal Slug: 1st Mission, as well as the penultimate boss for Metal Slug: 2nd Mission.

Boss Synopsis

Metal Slug: 1st Mission

The Metal Strider first shows up after Hilde Garn enters the Rebel Truck's box. Its size appears to be more than twice as that of the SV-000. It is able to fly and jump around using the rocket thruster on its back.

The actual fight begins at the Rebel Zeppelin. Whenever the Metal Strider jumps and hovers in mid-air, it shoots from its Vulcan guns in a downward curve. Lacking a cannon, it fires homing missiles from two shoulder-mounted launchers. It is capable of performing the Metal Slug Attack multiple times without self-destructing. If the Metal Strider falls off the zeppelin, it will pop out from behind the blimp.

The top of the Metal Strider pops out when enough damage is given. Its only attack at this point is using its Vulcan to fire in a circular pattern. Once the Metal Strider is fully destroyed, Hilde Garn falls to his apparent death, and the Hero uses his parachute to escape.

Metal Slug: 2nd Mission

While Hilde Garn himself does not appear in this game, the Metal Strider has been rebuilt and fights in Mission 37 (Lone Assault). It only has two attacks, the downward bullet sweep and its missiles, and does not have a second phase nor can it perform the Metal Slug Attack.

Trivia

  • In the area of the final mission of Metal Slug: 1st Mission where the Metal Strider first appeared, there were multiple others of its type in the background in varying states of assembly, indicating that it was slated to go into production. However, they were destroyed due to Hilde Garn having set off the base's self-destruct sequence.
