This page should be moved to "Metal Gear" since the majority of parodies are titled "Metal Gear ____" or "____ Gear Solid".
The Metal Gear fad takes the death sequence from Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty, where Otacon is calling out Snake in a memorable way:
"Snake? Snake? SNAAAAAAAAAAKE!"
The first site though did not feature Otacon calling out to Snake, but Luigi calling out to Mario:
The original site became popular for it's time and eventually spawned spinoffs months later featuring other fad characters of 2004 (like Ugoff, Kirk, etc...). The fad never really became full-blow instantly, but rather, grew at a steady rate, sometimes spawning multiple sites each day. Eventually, the Metal Gear fad was noticed in 2005, and has sometimes made it's way to various fad conglomerates.
"Metal Gear _____" sites still spawn once in a while, most of them taking in decent ratings.
