Hideo Kojima's son responsible for Snake being in Smash Bros.

Who else was taken by surprise back in E3 2007 when Solid Snake was announced for Smash Bros Brawl? Well, be prepared to be surprised even more; the person responsible for the inclusion isn't Hideo Kojima, the creator of Metal Gear, but his son. Apparently he thought this was a good idea...and probably didn't want to see his son go disappointed.
“My child likes Super Smash Bros., so we play it a lot together. And he told me that there’s no character that you made in that game.”
“As you know, we did make Twin Snakes, but generally speaking, there hasn’t been a lot of Metal Gear on Nintendo platforms. So from that perspective, I thought it was a good way to expose younger people to this character, Snake,”
