Peach has lived most of her life in castles filled with lava
She spent her vacation hot-tubbing it up in an active volcano
She has been kidnapped to space
And the one time she actually got pissed off, she starred in her own game and rescued everyone with the power of emotion.
You think a tiny little laser explosion will break that iron princess demeanor?
Peach will wreck you.
injuriesoccur and Snake just hides in a box
*clears throat* Allow me, sir, to explain you a thing.
Solid Snake was literally genetically designed to be a soldier. Thanks to “Les Enfants Terribles,” the government project to create the perfect soldier, he was crafted by a lab to be a genetic copy of his father, a man who was considered to be the greatest soldier to have lived. Snake was trained for combat at age 10. Add in extensive knowledge of almost any weaponry, hand-to-hand combat, tactical espionage, strategic military approach, and multiple languages and studies of all kinds of cultures for garnish, he was recruited by the Green freakin’ Berets at 18.
He was constantly manipulated by multiple people for his abilities. Snake would follow everyone’s orders, like a good soldier. For years, he was told to jump, and he said how far, until he finally realized the only person he could trust was himself. So, he walked away from the government, even though he racked up about a lifetime’s worth of jail time for his “misconduct” by the end of his first run. Fun fact, he raised huskies and even raced in the Iditarod while he was off living alone on the Alaskan frontier.
Despite all of that, at 33, he still saved the world from all-out nuclear warfare by swimming to a base in Alaska, fighting one of the greatest marksmen alive, a dude with a machine gun strapped to his back, a woman who could wait for weeks in one spot with her sniper rifle to kill one target, a man who had telekinetic and telepathic abilities, a cyber ninja, a helicopter with a rocket launcher, a tank with grenades, and almost single-handedly destroying mobile weapons of mass destruction (aka Metal Gear REX, and even its successor, Metal Gear RAY), which his twin brother was piloting.
By the end of it all, Solid Snake has had to kill his father, his twin brother, and his best friend twice. May I also mention that all three of those men tried to kill him on multiple occasions beforehand? Oh, and that was all by the end of his third game (He has two more after that, even goes on to save the world again even though his body is aging rapidly thanks to all of the genetic manipulation. Imagine fighting yet another terrorist cell group with the body of a man in his early 70s.).
So, if Snake wants to hide in a damn box, he will hide in a goddamn box.
