  • Snake Plissken is the name of a character, played by Kurt Russell, from John Carpenter's Escape From New York, a 1981 dystopian sci-fi movie that is credited as being on of the first films in the infancy of the cyberpunk genre, along with more notable entries like Blade Runner of 1982. Appleseed author Shirow Masamune was reportedly a big fan of the film, to the point of including a brief cameo in 1987's manga volume of Appleseed, The Scales of Prometheus. Plissken, in Russell's exact likeness, appears only in one frame, as an ES.W.A.T. enlistee rescued from the badlands, participating in a wargame simulation. Not pictured, a few frames later, he can be later heard uttering the famous line "Call me Snake." The cameo is obviously meant as a humorous tribute, non-canon, as Plissken's character hearkens back to a then-futuristic 1990s, and not the 2120s of the Appleseed timeframe.

  • Snake Plissken is a former U.S. Army Lieutenant, serving under Special Forces Unit Black LIGHT Stated by Hauk in Escape from New York, often misheard as Black Flight ("Gullfire" was the name of the glider Snake used), with two Purple Hearts, and the youngest soldier to be decorated by the U.S. President for bravery during campaigns in Leningrad and Siberia in World War III against the USSR. Some time later, he turned to a life of crime, probably due to the perceived betrayal of the United States government during the "Leningrad Ruse" (which were the events that caused him to lose the use of his left eye) and when his parents were burned alive in their home by the United States Police Force. He traveled with his war buddy and only friend, Bill Taylor. Snake took up with partners Harold Hellman (later known as "Brain") and Fresno Bob. In Kansas City around 1993, Hellman apparently let Plissken and Fresno Bob get cornered by police, at which time Fresno Bob was brutally tortured and killed by sadistic law enforcers within the United States Police Force. Possibly as a result of the Kansas City incident, it was widely believed in the criminal community that Plissken was dead. This is a running gag in Escape from New York: "I heard you were dead" (a homage to the John Wayne film Big Jake). In Escape from L.A. the recurring joke is changed to "I thought you'd be taller." Snake has a tattoo of a snake on his stomach, possibly as a reference to the Man with No Name, on whom Snake is partly based, who had metal snakes on the grip of his pistol in Sergio Leone's Dollars trilogy.
