Always liked the mythos and the gear they had in the metal gear games, even the whole conspiracy in it. And they do put there work into the gadgets
that they introduce into the games, even the more futuristic ones there all elements of actual things with a crazy futuristic and stylish twist.
Found this vid of the game, and they even have a tetchy sci fi answer which seems to be plausible as to why Raidens sword can cut through even hard
substances like metal like it was butter. Its a sort of tuning fork that's made of a metallic structures which is strengthened and has an
alternating current running through it hence the cool electricity effect you see in the game, but supposedly supposedly it weakens the particle bonds
of whatever it cuts. Sounds plausible? Who knows? It could be done someday, but if it was I think you would literally need cyborg arms just for the
strength required to achieve that type of pressure and speed which would help greatly when the thing/sword makes contact because its likely to not so
much sever partial bonds as it would fry them and every thing that it comes in contact with, and the speed and power of the initial blow itself would
help and accelerate the whole process.
Its a cool concept, even checked online to see and came across a few things. One this patten, seems somebody already thought on how to break apart
chemical bonds by using alternating currents or high voltage electrical discharges, though from the pdf the whole thing is a reactor type core were
they just pump in matter or gasses and just zap the whole thing with an electrical current specific in frequency to whatever elements are in that
core/chamber mostly gases it seems. Its totally different then the whole high frequency blade in the game, but it uses the same sort of concepts.

Also if something like this hits flesh or the human body it can literally and since the human body is mostly water vaporize it or literally turn
things into steam as it cuts through, not that you would need it but still. In fact you could even probably make a gun like that, you know something
that shoots a bullet only once it enters the body it explodes and discharges a high voltage at specific ranges to the water molecules trapped inside
the body, and it not only can do lots of damage but it could probably and literally vaporize a human body just by targeting the water molecules there
in which are everywhere they are in your blood stream, and in every cell that make's up the body it can literally burst them open or disintegrate
them and seeing as the human body is like 60% or so water its like something out of a movie. Talk about the whole sci fi thing were aliens invade and
vaporize, or the explode humans with there space photon guns. Pew, Pew, wosh, boom.
