The age of heroes is over, buried alongside The Boss and her bankrupt beliefs.
~ Hot Coldman.

Hot Coldman is the central antagonist of the 2010 video game Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker, and a posthumous antagonist for the rest of the series.

He is the former director of the Central Intelligence Agency who played a pivotal role in having the Boss eliminated during Operation Snake Eater, but was demoted and and sent to Latin America to oversee the agency's operations. Believing that no human is capable of retaliation, Coldman heads the Peace Walker project to create "peace" and prevent nuclear deterrence.

He was voiced by H. Richard Greene in English, and by Mugihito (who also voiced Sigma in Mega Man X, President Haltmann in Kirby: Planet Robobot, Dracuda in Akumaizer 3, Sander Cohen in Bioshock, and Master Zik in Sonic: Lost World) in Japanese.


He admits to Naked Snake that he planned Operation Snake Eater and implies that this was the reason why he ended up demoted as head of the CIA Latin America station. Hot Coldman is depicted as a former director of the CIA. Because of bitterness over the demotion, Coldman plans to use the Peace Sentinels and the Peace Walker Project to regain his status as a power player in Washington.



Not much is known about Hot Coldman, but he would become the director of the Central Intelligence Agency during the 1960s, and later planned the death of the Boss during her mission to find the philosopher's legacy. Though regarded as a hero among the agency, he was demoted presumably due to his knowledge of the operation for his nefarious actions to have the Boss eliminated. He was then transferred to Central America to oversee the CIA's operations.

Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker

After his demotion and transferal to Central America, Coldman has Huey Emmerich develop several A.I. weapons - first and foremost the Peace Walker - while tasking Dr. Strangelove with developing the Peace Walker's A.I. Coldman intends to use the Peace Walker as a fail-safe nuclear deterrence, since it is programmed to reply to any nuclear attack to the US mainland with launching a nuclear missile back into the attacking country. Believing that humans were ultimately unable to press the button to cause ultimate nuclear destruction, Coldman thought that only machines were able to reliably do so.

However, while trying to proves his point, Coldman is betrayed and shot by his partner, the KGB agent Zadornov. He dies of Zadornov's gunshots, but not before inputting Peace Walker's nuclear launch codes and leaking the false data to NORAD.


  • He has a tattoo on the back of his head that reads "Homo Homini Lupus", which translates to "Man is a wolf to man".
