Character Summary Edit

"Pull your finger out and get to the source code." -Marco's pet phrase.

This Italian-American went on to study at the military academy's special technologies college after attending a public technical high school. After graduation, he became a member of the Peregrine Falcons Special Forces Squad (commonly called PF Squad). Although gentle by nature, mention of General Morden, responsible for the deaths of so many of his friends and comrades, will send him into an uncontrolled rage. He's one of the squad's expert agents and an intellectual whose hobby is computer science. A computer virus he created for fun once mistakenly attacked the army's central computer system. Penetrating through all of the security firewalls, the virus almost caused the launch of a nuclear missile. But he'll never admit this.  


In Metal Slug 6 and Metal Slug 7, Marco is most skilled with the Handgun. He can shoot twice as fast with the Handgun and his shots cause double the damage than other characters. In Metal Slug XX, Marco can rapidly fire weapons by holding (Up + Square + R). The only downside is that while firing you can't move.

Voice ActorsEdit

Crossover AppearancesEdit

SNK Vs. Capcom: CHAOSEdit

Marco makes a very small appearance in the Mars People's ending of the game alongside Fio and Eri as they move into battle against the Mars People that are attacking New York.

Neo-Geo Battle ColiseumEdit

Marco appears as a playable character in this game, using many Metal Slug weapons on his attacks. He uses the Heavy Machine Gun, Iron Lizard, Grenades, Knife, Punching Glove, also calling the Metal Slug and Hyakutaro.

SNK vs. Capcom Card Fighters DSEdit

Marco appears as one of the obtainable cards in the game. His special ability is to give 600 pts. of damage to the opponent when counterattacking.


  • Marco's physique is possibly based on that of John Rambo,and his looks are possibly influenced by David Bowie .
  • His favorite dish is Chinese Noodles.
  • Marco Rossi's name is based off of a famous Nascar driver by the same name, Marco Rossi.
  • Metal Slug Advance is the only game in the Metal Slug series (not counting spin-offs) that Marco does not appear in as a playable, though he appears in the cover with Eri Kasamoto cheering on both new PF Squad recruits Walter Ryan and Tyra Elson.
  • Marco's ability to double the firepower of his default weapon is quite common as to how fast the players; before Metal Slug 6, 7 and XX; would fire the default weapon to deal significant damage.
