  • The Walkman was an audio cassette player sold in the 1980s by Sony, Aiwa, and Panasonic. Marty owned a black and silver Walkman of the Aiwa brand, model number HS P02 MK2. Marty McFly listened to his rock music on his Walkman.

  • A prototype of the then in-development Sony Walkman TPS-L2, originally belonged to ornithologist Cécile Cosima Caminades to record bird sounds in Costa Rica, 1974. However, it was confiscated by the CIA mercenary group Peace Sentinel after she stumbled upon one of the secret AI tests for the Mammal Pod. Cipher agent Pacifica Ocean later managed to steal it from a supply depot at Puerto del Alba, and passed it on to KGB ally Vladimir Zadornov. The Diamond Dogs also recorded their interrogations via the Walkman.

After the destruction of each Walkman, Strickland would then invite its owner to come up and claim the shattered remains. Marty used his Walkman as a torture device by playing an Eddie Van Halen guitar solo which woke up George McFly. Disguised as a space alien named "Darth Vader", Marty threatened to melt his brain with the device.

  • A prototype of the then in-development Sony Walkman TPS-L2, originally belonged to ornithologist Cécile Cosima Caminades to record bird sounds in Costa Rica, 1974. However, it was confiscated by the CIA mercenary group Peace Sentinel after she stumbled upon one of the secret AI tests for the Mammal Pod. Cipher agent Pacifica Ocean later managed to steal it from a supply depot at Puerto del Alba, and passed it on to KGB ally Vladimir Zadornov. A few days later, Zadornov, in the guise of Ramón Gálvez Mena, used it to play back a tape cassette for the commander of the private military group Militaires Sans Frontières, Naked Snake. The cassette contained Cécile's recording of the AI test, which featured the voice of Snake's deceased former mentor, The Boss, speaking with an unidentified woman. MSF's subcommander Kazuhira Miller initially believed that the Walkman was a Russian copy of the prototype, but later discovered and informed Snake otherwise. Snake kept the Walkman for MSF's subsequent mission into Costa Rica, and Mother Base's R&D Team, under Miller's suggestion, studied the Walkman and were later able to reverse-engineer and improve it. In addition, the Walkman was used to play back recordings that contained briefings, discussions between personnel, or even old data files. These included a multi-part cassette tape from EVA, regarding The Boss's mission between 1959 and 1962, and memoirs recorded by Strangelove regarding her past with The Boss, having felt that she may not come back alive from her top-secret mission for the CIA. The cassette tapes used for the recordings were also high pass-pressed. Likewise, the tapes utilized were C-60 tapes (tapes that had a recording limit of 60 minutes), with thirty minutes being devoted to each side; two checkboxes to indicate which side was full; an "[...]81811 Do Not Remove" warning label; stereo-sound playability; and had the MSF logo extending from the left side to barely reaching the right side. Pacifica Ocean, under cover as Paz Ortega Andrade, also utilized the Walkman to record her log on the events of her stay on Mother Base, and her mission for Cipher. The Diaries as well as the associated mission log were later uncovered by Big Boss and Miller. Presumably, the Walkman was used for intelligence operations by the Intel Unit afterwards, and the MSF managed to mass produce their own versions of the Walkman. On December 7, 1974, the MSF Intel Team agent Hideo managed to retrieve a cassette tape containing information that presumably related to the base, as well as request an extraction from his assigned post. He barely managed to escape after circumstances forced Big Boss to directly intervene to save Hideo. On December 21, 1974, an undercover agent that was planted at the facility by the Joint Chiefs of Staff and instructed to meet with the Militaires Sans Frontières, located and presumably recorded a cassette tape that contained information vital enough for the MSF to deploy Big Boss to retrieve it. However, due to their actions being monitored by the staff, the agent had to stow it away at a guard tower and tell Big Boss (who likewise put him into an interrogation hold to ensure their cover was intact) where it was located instead of supplying it to him in person. However, the tape was a dummy tape (albeit containing incriminating evidence of a torture by one of the personnel), the agent being forced to almost set them up due to one of the Marines confiscating the real tape and threatening his family. Big Boss eventually managed to retrieve both tapes and escape from the base, where they discovered the existence of a mysterious man known only by the name of Skull Face, who relayed his past to a prisoner he had heavily tortured. The tapes acted as proof that the base had been used as a black site, with the actual tape uncovering that they had even ordered a fleet of transports. The MSF utilized at least one of their Walkmans for the events leading up to the IAEA inspection of Mother Base, including the revelation that Paz survived her duel with Big Boss, the discovery that Chico had disappeared, and details on the base that Chico was being held at. In addition, Paz's diaries were placed into archives by this time. On March 7-8, 1975, Chico, after overhearing that Paz had survived, took a Walkman with him to record his progress in trying to locate her, after sneaking off of a supply ship enroute to Havana while it was stopped at Santiago de Cuba to refuel. However, he ended up being caught and captured, though he temporarily retained his use of the Walkman, which he used to expose what was happening during his imprisonment. It was eventually confiscated from Chico by the leader, Skull Face, after a torture session. Skull Face later recorded his interrogation of Paz as well as his surgical implanting of bombs into her body. After this, he returned the Walkman to Chico at his cage in Camp Omega, which he listened to the tape containing the torture of Paz by jacking it to a port in his chest. Big Boss later took the Walkman from Chico after rescuing him, and used it and the included tape to deduce where Paz was being held. A prisoner recovered one of Chico's cassette tapes after escaping from his cell, which he supplied to Big Boss after being rescued. Another one of Chico's tapes was found by Big Boss in the admin building's central control tower. In addition, despite Skull Face and XOF intending to deliberately let Big Boss find the diary tapes Chico made during his imprisonment, at least one of Chico's tapes nearly ended up thrown out by the base's US Marines personnel, as they wanted to quickly get rid of any evidence of what was occurring at the base. However, Big Boss, having overheard this while infiltrating the Admin Building, intercepted the tape before it could be taken by the garbage truck. During the 1980s, Venom Snake came equipped with the Walkman, and also procured various cassette tapes that featured various songs made during this time. Like it's predecessor, the Diamond Dogs also utilized the Walkman to record various briefings and conversations at Mother Base, relating to the overall missions, current events, the past, and other topics. The Diamond Dogs also recorded their interrogations via the Walkman. In addition, the real Big Boss sent Venom Snake, his phantom, a Walkman tape called "Truth: From the Man who Sold the World" which explained that they are "both Big Boss," and also gave some more information that happened in the past, including reports from Ocelot, and various conversations with Zero.
