Post What does "Shalashaska" mean?
As the title says really, can't get a clear cut answer when Googling it!

"Shalashaska" (シャラシャーシカ Sharashāshika), was Ocelot's nickname when he was younger.

The Official MGS Database, says this...

Quote:
Revolver Ocelot's nickname. In his younger days, Ocelot took part in the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan. He struck fear in the hearts of Afghan guerrillas, who called him the Shalashaska.


Any help would be great, thank you.

I take it you didn't listen to the Push To Talk interview with Jeremy Blaustien.

Never heard of it mate. Is that quote specifically referring to the name "Shalashaska"?

In what context is it used? And, do you have a link to said interview?

ABSOLUTELY NOT, for fuck sake. For us Russians it's the same thing - it's gibberish. :x
