This helmet papercraft is designed by juke, the paper model is based on the video game series Metal Gear. Metal Gear is a series of stealth video games, created by Hideo Kojima and developed and published by Konami.
The first game, Metal Gear, was released in 1987 for the MSX2. The player takes control of a special forces operative Solid Snake who is assigned to find the eponymous superweapon "Metal Gear", a bipedal walking tank with the ability to launch nuclear weapons. Several sequels have been released for multiple consoles after requests from Konami to produce new Metal Gear games. The sequels expand the original game's plot adding new characters opposing and supporting Snake, while there have also been a few prequels exploring the origins of the Metal Gear and recurring characters. Various parts were inspired by Hollywood films with character's names, settings and artworks often referencing them.
The Papercraft from Juke is not available, but darkside501st made another one. The paper model like this:Cyborg Ninja was an alter-ego assumed by several individuals. The name is derived from the high-tech exoskeletons and swords that they utilized, the former of which were developed by Tokugawa Heavy Industries.
All of the Cyborg Ninjas carried a high frequency blade as standard issue. Gray Fox was also outfitted with an arm cannon which fired explosive energy blasts. Raiden holstered a SOCOM pistol as his sidearm. Raiden is said to use the H.F. Blade that Olga gave him, but there are some differences between the swords; Raiden's second blade had a dark grey color, and the handle of the sword was different in that there was no hilt. By 2023, he was seen using a more advanced sword with a curved blade.
The Cyborg Ninja character did not exist in the original concept for Metal Gear Solid and was an original creation by series artist Yoji Shinkawa. Director Hideo Kojima liked the design so much, he decided to incorporate it into the storyline. An unrelated Ninja-type character, Black Ninja, previously appeared in the preceding game, Metal Gear 2: Solid Snake.
In Hideo Kojima's Metal Gear Solid 2 Grand Game Plan, the second Cyborg Ninja was originally intended to have been a machine, before eventually being changed to Olga Gurlukovich in the final game. In one scene, the Ninja would have altered its voice in order to taunt Solid Snake and Otacon, by mimicking Meryl Silverburgh and Sniper Wolf, respectively.
Raiden is the only Cyborg Ninja in the series to survive the events of the game in which he is featured. He is also the only Ninja to have never fought Solid Snake.
All Cyborg ninjas are depicted in the series as being child soldiers, having light blond hair and fair skin, and tend to suffer horrid deaths albeit encouraging the main character.
