Night Fright

Night Fright (ナイト・フライト Naito Furaito), originally called Night Sight and the Phantom Assassin, was a Zanzibar Land mercenary specializing in guerrilla warfare and a minor antagonist in Metal Gear 2: Solid Snake.



Night Fright was the last surviving operative of the legendary guerrilla squad The Whispers. Armed with his silenced sub-machine gun, Night Fright was infamous for his renowned assassination skills and stealth camouflage, rendering him almost always invisible and unseen by his enemies.

Metal Gear 2: Solid Snake

Night Fright, in 1999, was eventually hired by Zanzibar Land to assassinate the veteran FOXHOUND agent Solid Snake. In the detention camp's basement, Night Fright had the upper hand thanks to his invisibility, but Snake used his heightened sense of hearing to find and kill his stealthy opponent.



  • Night Fright is a boss character who appears in Metal Gear 2: Solid Snake. He was originally named Night Sight (ナイトサイト Naito Saito) in the MSX2 version of the game, but was later renamed in the re-released versions of Metal Gear 2. Night Fright's theme music is based on the main title theme from the 1978 film Halloween and is notably the only tune omitted from the Metal Gear 2: Solid Snake Original Soundtrack.
  • Night Fright was the first character in the Metal Gear series to use a form of stealth camouflage, though chronologically, he was preceded by The Fear. Although Night Fright is stated in-game to have never been seen by anyone, he does briefly flash into view whenever he is hit by one of the player's attacks. Night Fright is the only elite mercenary that did not speak to Snake before fighting him.
  • Night Fright's use of an advanced camouflage suit as well as his nickname "Phantom Assassin" was omitted from his entry in the Metal Gear Solid 4 Database. This was due to his fellow Zanzibar Land comrade, Jungle Evil, being erroneously attributed with the camouflage suit and nickname in his entry.
