A Metal Gear prototype designed by Hal Emmerich on Shadow Moses Island. Although the original model was destroyed by Solid Snake, stolen data was spread across the world and many countries began designing and creating their own Metal Gear REX units. The original model was later repaired by Emmerich and used by Solid Snake to fight Liquid Ocelot, who was piloting a Metal Gear RAY unit. Although it defeated the newer Metal Gear due to Emmerich's secret "Street Fighter" program, REX was abandoned on Shadow Moses once again soon after.
