Parker is an NPC from Metal Slug.


As a Businessman

Parker works for a Japanese game developer. He works mostly promoting the company's games around the world, always carrying some AES cartridges, a catalogue of new products and a set of memory cards inside his briefcase. However, Parker

is a little distracted, and usually ends having his briefcase stolen (by you, as a pickup for some bonus points), making him blame whoever he was talking with. Usually it is some delivery boy, who runs away crying, emotionally scarred for life.

Parker can be seen twice in Metal Slug 2\Metal Slug X:

  • In both games, he is at the beginning of the first mission, where he is talking to an arabian merchant outside of a small house. Sometimes, he is replaced by another merchant.
  • In Metal Slug 2, he's at the beginning of the fourth mission, where he talks with a delivery kid.
  • In Metal Slug X, he shows up in the Final Mission inside the Rebel base, seemingly talking to a POW who is tied to a wooden pole. When the particular POW is cut free, he will stop gesturing and just stand there. It is possible he was trying to negotiate a price for the POW's freedom.

As a Civilian

When not promoting his company, Parker appears in the middle of the battlefield trying to make a conversation. Sometimes, he is randomly seen out in the open (Metal Slug 1); other times, he is a reward from a POW (Metal Slug 6 and Metal Slug 7/XX . Parker acts as a collectible item, although he is worth zero points when collected. He disappears if left alone.
