Phil Gene, sometimes spelled as Phil John, is an unused character that was going to be the main protagonist in the early version of Metal Slug: Super Vehicle-001, in place of Marco Rossi that later replaced him in the later stages of development.


Little is known about him but from what little information is there he is an engineer in the Regular Army who got involved in the Modern Wars via stumbling across the Metal Slug and uses it to fight back against the Rebel Army.
