Role in Rise of an Unleashed Army

In the beginning, Starkiller spots a huge demon tank riding through the canyons. He goes after it while slicing through demons along the way. He reaches it, battles it, and destroys it by throwing his lightsaber through the tank's cannon, making it explode. Starkiller did all of this destruction as a test, as instructed by Darth Vader.

Meanwhile, as he seeks any other Smashers, he spots Kratos, who is battling a bunch of demons. (More coming soon)

1Snake's Codec Conversation

NOTE: This codec conversation will happen if Starkiller wears one of his regular costumes except the Sith Stalker uniforms.

Snake: "Woah...this dude looks really powerful, Mei Ling."
Mei Ling: "That's Starkiller. He's Darth Vader's secret apprentice, and he is more commonly known as Galen Marek. Starkiller is considered to be one of the most powerful warriors in history."
Snake: "Hmm...powerful warrior you say? Well then, I guess I'm stuck in a battle of both wits, and strength."
Mei Ling: "Well, I wouldn't underestimate him if I were you. Just...try to keep your focus. Uhh..."
Snake: "What is it, Mei Ling?"
Mei Ling: "Ohh...he...he..."
Snake: "What?!"
Mei Ling: "Oh, he is so dreamy! He's so handsome, I wanna hold him in my arms and-"
Snake: "Mei Ling! You're seriously not falling for his looks, are you?!"
Mei Ling: "Sorry! I just can't resist him! He's so-"
Snake: "Yeah, I get the idea. Now, time to-"
Mei Ling: "Galen, I love you! AAAAAHHHHHHHHH!!!!!"
Snake: "Good thing I'm not a woman."

NOTE: This version will happen if Starkiller wears one of the Sith Stalker uniforms except his normal costumes.

Snake: "Dude...this guy looks freaky."
Otacon: "That is Starkiller, except that he's in his Sith stalker armor after he got seriously injured by being crushed by a ship under the grip of Palpatine."
Snake: "Ouch. How did he manage to survive that?!"
Otacon: "'s a long story, but I think you should concentrate on battling him."
Snake: "Good idea. Oh, and by the way, was Vader present during the incident?"
Otacon: " Before the incident, Starkiller killed Vader with vengeance."
Snake: "He...WHAT?!!"
Otacon: "Well, uh...he-"
Snake: "That punk killed Darth Vader, one of the greatest movie characters of all time! I'm gonna get you for that!"
Otacon: "Now, Snake, calm down! Just try to fight him without any other incident happening, please."
Snake: "Uhh...fine. But I will still give him some payback!"
Otacon: "Uhh...your decision, your funeral."
Snake: "Ok, whatever you say, Otacon. But wait if Vader died in Return of the Jedi, then how did he kill him? I mean, am I losing my mind because you told me that Starkiller killed Vader?"
Otacon: "It's another long story,but for now be careful.''
Snake: "Hmph! Fine."
