The CEO of a wealthy business, the unnamed President is a rare POW appearing several times in the Metal Slug series. He takes the appearance of a middle-age, bespectacled man with light blond hair in a business suit. After you save him (he is typically harder to reach than normal POW's), he calls his two of his bodyguards to give you an item from each of their briefcases. The bodyguards take several seconds to arrive, but they give more valuable items than other POW's--including rare weapons (Thunder Cloud or Mobile Satellite). He also provides a higher bonus score than regular POW's if you manage to rescue him and stay alive until the end of the level.
- In the Recaptured Prisoners list at the end of the level, the President's "rank" is listed as "CEO".
- Some theorize he is the President of the United States. This is possible but unlikely, as the US President is not typically referred to as a CEO.
- After his bodyguards give you the items, the three of them leave, although sometimes the bodyguards accidentally leave without him, returning several seconds later to retrieve him.
- In the Xbox 360 version of Metal Slug 3, rescuing the President in Mission 2 earns the player the "Save The President" achievement.
- The President appears 3 times in Metal Slug 3; first in Mission 2 below the first hill, and Mission 3 in the Ostrich Slug route. And then in the final mission in the first hallway of the alien mothership (hidden in the ceiling).
- When you free him, he greets you by saying "Hi!"
- In Metal Slug Attack, the President appears in POW Rescue as the last POW to be released/saved, though saving him doesn't speak his trademarked "Hi!" quote.
