Gray Fox is one step ahead of the hounds

Gray Fox is one step ahead of the hounds....

...and I am one of them. Gray Fox is one of my favorite characters in the series. He was always a character I wanted to know more about. Before MPO I had so many questions about Gray Fox and then MPO came out and basically made a statement that every outrageous thing we knew about Fox was a pre-existing condition.

He was mindless robot before he was a mindless robot.
He could jump inhumanly high before he was a cyborg.
He was an experiment before he was an experiment.
He had issues with memory before he had issues with his memory.

You have to wonder why they would try to make Gray Fox be everything he was in a game that was set in a time 30 year prior? I have my ideas why they would do that, but I don't want to create a theory. I want to ask you all a question.

If Gray Fox is in MGSV how would we recognize him? What are some chracteristics that you would expect to see given all we know about him?

I'm hoping they ignore the whole Null story and just portray Fox as a skilled soldier. Maybe we won't even recognise him at first, until we found out that Chico's changed his name to Frank Yeager.

I'd imagine we'd recognize him when his name flashes on the screen.

Since it seems to do that for every noteworthy character.

The core story is canon, but some details aren't.

There are rumors going around that Gray Fox is the guy with the bandages over his face in the hospital.
Theres also other rumors about Gray Fox acting out as Big Boss while he was in a coma.

People like u, who are fans of Gray Fox will probably finally see him in this game, he was around in the 80s.

Okay, you said the game wasn't canon, not that certain details aren't.

Even then we don't know what events are and aren't, so that could still very well be canon. I personally doubt it, but the possibility is still there.

And Chico being Fox wouldn't make any sense whatsoever as Fox is of Vietnamese and German descent whereas Chico is of Nicaraguan descent. inb4 "Kojima said there will be retcons!" No he didn't, he said there might be retcons, which is a statement of possibility, not a statement of fact.

Evidently Kojima disagrees with you because he himself advertised PO as canon and publicly acknowledged it as canon twice, once after Peace Walker was released and once quite recently. PO is canon, get used to it.

What details aren't may I ask? Oh wait, I'm sorry, Kojima didn't go into specifics on what he meant by that, which renders that comment completely irrelevant until he actually does go into specifics about it.
