Hideo Kojima is a Japanese video game designer and also the head and founder of Kojima Productions. He is most famous for his creation of the Metal Gear series which revolutionizes the stealth genre of video games. Although a successful series, he was kicked out by his employer, Konami, for apparently spending too much money to develop MGSV. He is currently working for the release of his next game, Death Stranding.
Although he is most known for his association with video games, Kojima is also a huge kinophile and thus this trait also applies to his games. For example, Metal Gear Solid 4 alone holds the record for the longest single cutscene in a video game ever at 27 minutes long, and his newest project, Death Stranding, is also known for its casts that are mostly Hollywood actors. This led to most of his games being called a "movie simulator" rather than an actual game.
He is also a huge fan of conspiracy theories and occultism, having himself a huge amount of knowledge about magic.
Kojima has taken a very big interest in TFR and has become very observant of it, along with his Producer.
This may be related to the rumor that this is taking place in a different dimension called 2K20, since the Laws of Wrestling have weakened and wrestlers report a strange feeling ever since the end of the year stated approaching.
Kojima appears to take an interest in the legendary mercenary HUNK after seeing his freelance match, and orders his producer to hire him.
His producer reports that the negotiations with HUNK went favorably. Kojima, then says it's time for the hostile takeover to begin.
It seems HUNK has been re-contracted in TFR, and makes an appearance to declare that "This is war".
Kojima finally obtains full control of TFR. And he declares the first idea that he's gonna implement: If either lose, they shall receive a special punishment. If Mrs. X loses he'll give her a silly dress, but if Red does, he'll have her eye fall out. His Producer acclaims his idea... before asking how he is gonna do that. Kojima answers that, of course, he is gonna write it into reality. This is sure to make ratings go through the roof.
Disappointed in the result of Mrs. X's match, he has her eye fall out too. At this point, his Producer notices him that The Locker Room is rebelling on his new rules. Kojima tells him to send HUNK-sama, and that anyone who dares attack him will become 5'6.
However, even a manlet Senator Armstrong manages to somehow be the first to defeat HUNK, thanks to the power of his new SUPER-NANOMACHINES.
When his Producer starts wondering why he sent HUNK to lose, Kojima reveals it was all part of his plan; he made him lose on purpose, as a plot twist, as he himself gave Armstrong the nanomachines. After receiving even more praise from his Producer, he decides he wants to see what happens without the nanomachines, and creates a Reality Marble where the laws of Universe 2K19 apply. However, even in here they managed to draw out.
His Producer again mentions that the Locker Room keeps rebelling more and more against his actions, but more than that, the ratings are starting to plummet. Kojima ignores all this, and assures that "I made this show get high ratingu! We in build up stage now! Soon, ratingu go uppu! I know how to book!". He also exclaims "I brought Johnnyru to this worudo!", which confuses his Producer as he was not even part of the staff back then. He also claims, he bought The Focusing Stone and had HUNK give it to Battora Ushiromiya, as he was a creative director in testing back then. He also mentions he brought back a famous star from 20 years ago...
When the Producer informs that the Locker Room is starting to riot, he suggest sending HUNK. But Kojima denies him, as HUNK-sama is in surgery being upgraded. He then sets new punishments as a way to give the wrestlers more presence: "Tripperu threto match? Eosers become BRUE! Braddu pittu has match? Roser becomes chinese flag! More ideas! Drake Beru vs my signing from last week? ROSER SHAVES HALF THEIR HEAD! AND... AND... IF EXTRA AND RED ROSE... THROW THEM IN SURGERY! MAKE THEM BIONIC!!!" Kojima keeps throwing his ideas at TFR with total disregard for the wrestlers themselves.
This didn't defuse the situation, instead, wrestlers stopped rioting because they were planning a takeover! With Central as their leader, they've positioned men already. However, what Kojima responded with is "HEY! I MAKE STIPURRATION FOR MAIN EVENTO! WINNERY WILL FACE THE CHAMPION, BUT... They have 10 minutes to pin him! And if they don't, they become FATTO! AND SMARU! HAHAHAHAHA !". When the Producer tries to focus Kojima's attention, he threatens to fine him and reveals his plan to pay the Million Dollar Guy even more to take out the man commanding the takeover.
Kojima complains about losing the Geimu Awardo to some game called Sekilo, who is way too hard him. His Producer informs him that they managed to get a contract with another hollywood star, but Kojima seems displeased with the recent performance of his horrywood stars. Producer comments that he seems unmotivated by his debt, and Kojima decides to put a cursed mask in him to make him motivated, by turning him demonic. "HUNDRED DORRA GET DEDUCED FROM OPPONENT BAK ACCOUNT! PERUFECT! AND I HAVE MORE IDEAS! VERGIL HAS HAIR PROBLEM? PUT HIM AGAINST MY HORRYWOOD STAR TONY HAWKU! ROSER HAS TO GET AN EVEN WORSE HAIRCUT THAN THEIR CURRENT ONE! MORE! MORE! THE BRUE MAN HAS TO WIN TAG TEAM CHAMPIONSHIT TO REVERT THEIR CURSE!"
However, later that day, as past legend of TFR returns to the ring, the man who is decided to correct the course of history.
I'm getting straight to the point. I don't have much time as things stand. Kojima, you are the dumbest person I know.
—The screen starts to tear and distort—
You... You... You... Signed it... 50% ownership...
But the only thing you didn't notice, Kojima, was it was ONLY 50%. And the person who owns the other half of TFR? That's me.
I bought it to make sure another Bog disaster wouldn't happen... And if you or your cronies think 'this is war', then I'll show you wa-
At that point, the transmission cuts.
Producer announces that Sminem has returned, but HUNK is still being worked on. Kojima, getting more hysterical, replies "I SAW IT! I ROCKED HIM AWAY! BUT HE BREAK ROCK SOON! HE COME BACK TO THIS UNIVERSE!". Producer says that the riots still are intensifying, and they can't use their trump card of Armstrong just yet. Kojima responds to let The Prototypes out to destroy the Locker Room. The Producer complains that they are barely 30% done, but Kojima ignores it. "WE HAVE ENOUGH PROTOTYPE FOR 5 MATCH! SEND THEM OUT! I DON'T CARE ABOUT UNIVERSE RURE! WE STOP SMINEM! BEFORE... BEFORE IT'S TOO RATE! HUNK-SAMA WILL BE HERE SOON! WHEN HE BACK, WE WON'T ROSE ANYMORE!".
Thus, the War of the Prototypes starts to defend TFR. A bloody combat that defeats TFR and leaves many injured.
Kojima laughs at crushin the TFR forces with his superior wrestlers and proclaims it's almost time to unleash... The Final Impact. Kojima has locked every wrestler that doesn't belong to his vision on the Old Universe, even thought it was supposed to have been destroyed. Because he himself and ratings enjoy suffering, Kojima decides to stream what is going on there, and gives a select few a chance to survive as long as they have a title.
Just as somewrestlers were expressing their emotions on camera, he decides to cut off the feed, to wallow in even more suffering.
However, when he was relaxing enjoying the despair, his Producer appears telling of a terrible notice: They've just been invaded by mysterious forces. And they're here to stop The Final Impact. Kojima becomes enraged and orders all manpower to repair and dispatch the Prototypes that instant.
The invaders manage to stall enough time for the final impact to be delayed terribly, leaving Kojima no choice but ignore the title holders and close the portal now, so that nobody could return from the other universe before TFI, or it would all be over! However, his Producer mentions that some of his forces still remain, and deciding to listen to him for once, he decides instead to send Armstrong to the 2K20 entrance portal room and close it. However, someone intercepted Armstrong before he could reach there.
Armstrong was intercepted by none other than The Court. As Miles Edgeworth fights him, Kojima activates his hidden ace and turns Armstrong fully metallic. During that time he crushed Edgeworth, but suddenly, Phoenix Wright from the sidelines somehow deactivates the nanomachines, and Edgeworth uses his confusion to make a terminating move on Armstrong and defeat him.
Phoenix then, livestreams the truth about Kojima and himself. About how Sminem had a premonition from the start that someone was gonna attempt this, and all they had left to do was find who. About how Kojima was in contact with HUNK since before he fought Battler. About how HUNK's matches before this point had all been predetermined. About how Battler receiving a modified Focusing Stone was all part of Kojima's plan, which after his match with Agent 47 warped him to the universe Kojima had created, and the very one they now stood: Kojima's World. About how he used Battler as a catalyst to create his new universe, having him endure endless torment alone for what seemed an eternity, which completely destroyed his mind, forcing it to take a different persona to distance from the pain. About how he himself had betrayed his friends to get close to Kojima and destroy him from the inside. About Battler waking up as a different person, and Kojima's time coming soon. But before he could reveal his name, Kojima interrupted him, because he wants no spoilers, and ended the transmission.
Then, Kojima finally meets again with what was said to be the greatest in TFR, to who he hated more than anything right now and decided to make his rival until the time of his match, to the only one that could stop him, Tohya Hachijo. Even despite his insistence, Tohya repeats that he is no longer Battler Ushiromiya. Kojima bets on his own creation the Demon of Debt, but Tohya calls out his contradiction on spoiling his own script.
To push Tohya further, Kojima demonstrates his powers by altering how everyone in this match looks. Tohya tells him to stop this sick game, but Kojima just tortures him further.
However, they are interrupted as guests enter the office. Kirei Kotomine and his servant Dimitri Blaiddyd. Announcing themselves, Kirei that they are a third party in the confrontation, as they can neither support Tohya's happy ending, nor Kojima's annihilation with minor suffering. Kirei states that he is here to repay Battler's favor, on him being the closest thing he had to a friend, by engaging the last of Kojima's defenses until Tohya's match is on, ensuring a fair match. This enrages Kojima, who sends Armstrong against the pair. Tohya says a heartfelt thank you, for the strangers to be helping him.
"Kojima, this is the final battle. You shall not send anyone back to the old universe anymore, and you shall not extinguish it!"
They all antagonize Kojima for what he did, and demand he hand over the Script. However, Kojima shows fearless, as he doesn't even allow a bit of doubt in himself.
"Do you... rearry think I'm afraido? What can you do to me, USHIROMIYA BATTOOOOORAAAAAAAA? I AM PAAFEKTO! I CONTROR REALITY!"
Just as Kojima calls for him, HUNK-V2 finally has arrived. He formally meets Tohya, whose mind somehow recognizes him, before engaging him in combat, beginning the battle for the destiny of two universes.
However, it was not Tohya who was fighting that day, but Battler's fierce soul refusing to go out without shining with a blinding light one last time. The style of wrestling that was on the ring that day... was definitely Battler! He fought with strength the kinds of which was never seen before, and finally, HUNK, the Grim Reaper, the unbeatable machine who claimed neither man nor beast could step in his shadow and go undefeated against him in combat
"NO! NOT RIKE THIS! HUNK-SAMA WAS SUPPOSED TO BE INVINCIBRE! YAMEROOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!"
"Ugh... That took a lot out of me... Guess I haven't really wrestled before. But... It's the end, Kojima!"
"You didn't know why Sminem had put so much faith in me... But I now realize. It's simply because of who I am."
"Just like you, Kojima... I am also a writer. And that's why I'm the only one here capable of stopping you. Because, unlike you, I know what the true essence of writing is. I put my heart and mind into it."
"And now, I have the script... Just like you, I can change reality. I can decide other's lives and fates. I can make this world what I want it to be... But I know what to do, and I know when to stop."
"I'm sorry I failed you, master..."
"You did well. Our objective here has been completed. Armstrong and Kojima weren't a factor here."
"And now, we shall rejoice! For our time approaches... And when it comes, they'll get to learn true pain."
"Edelgard... We'll find you soon enough! You're all gonna pay for this!"
"...The creature that landed in Hell that day... That vessel should be waking up now. We must determine if he truly represents what I thought he did."
"Is that... the one who will lead us to..."
"Yes, to our objective."
"The Blue Man Curse... The falling eyes... All the magic, all the times you manipulated this show..."
"We reject all of it!
We reject your visions, we reject your script, WE REJECT YOU!"
"But... I MASTERPIECE WRITER! I WIN GEIMU AWARUDO FOR BESTO DIRECTION! I DO ARR GAMES MYSERF! NO HERP FROM ANYONE! NO ONE ABOVE ME! START TO FINISH!"
"None of that matters, Mr. Kojima. Because, in the end, there's only one thing to be said about everything you wrote... About you, about your games... About your ideals and mentality... About this universe and the 'Final Impact'..."
"IT'S ALL NOTHING BUT A FORGERY!"
"*cackre*cackre*cackre* USHIROMIIIIIIIYAAA BAAAAATOOOOOOORAAAAAA! YOU ROST! HUNK-SAMA CAN NEVER BE DEFEATED!"
"Finaru Impacto ready for execution! We waste no time anymore! No more deray, no TCR, no BATTTOOOOOOOORAAAAAA!"
"I no kirr you now! I keep you in this universe to watch it! I personarry punish you, Wraito and Saihara-chan! And when you suffer enough, I think about putting out of misery!"
"This was war, and you ROST IT! YOU ARE INCOMPETENT! *cackre cackre cackre*"
"And now, I sharr use him, the weapon of mass destruction to end anyone who isn't smart enough to understand my geimu! Behord, The Finaru Impacto!"
"IT'S USELESS! IT'S ALL USELESS! UUUUUUUUUWWWWWWWWWWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!"
(A portal appears behind Kojima)
(A figure appears behind Kojima and grabs him)
"W-Who? W-WHAT ARE YOU DOI-"
(Sound of the party rockers being in the house tonight)
"NOOOOOOO MY SCRIPTO! RET ME OOOOOOOOOOOOOUUUUUUUTTTT!"
(The figure and Kojima disappear as the portal closes)
"S-Sminem.. You didn't... You..."
"That... That had to be him! He dragged Kojima into that portal... With the script... When it was about to happen!"
"And still... he managed to protect us? The device he was creating, based on the focusing stone, wasn't nearly as complete!"
"That must have been a move out of desperation... By him, out of all people? Did things really not go as planned? Are the others okay?"
"I hope so. Sminem... wouldn't sacrifice himself like this if he wasn't sure it'd stop The Final Impact..."
"But that... Wasn't out of desperation. It was definitely calculated... within the realm of possibilities."
"Is he really gone? Forever?"
"...Yes... I think so..."
"...We can't cry now, thought... We can't... That was the destiny he chose... That was what he knew would happen..."
"He tried to change it... He did everything he could, he trusted us... He didn't wanna follow the script life had set for him! HE WANTED TO BREAK FREE OF IT!"
"But in the end... IT WAS USELESS! Sometimes you just can't escape your fate... Even if you know it!"
"I BACKSTABBED YOU! I BACKSTABBED KYLE! I LIED AND LIED AND LIED, ALL IN THE NAME OF THIS PLAN! AND STILL, NOTHING CHANGED!"
"Wright... Truth or lies aren't something important here... What really matters is where all of this leads to."
"You might not have been able to change his fate. He might not have been able to do it himself. We might have lost a boss, a friend and a guardian angel here..."
"If he did what he did, and he knew it was coming... In a way, it means he had already come to terms with it... Maybe that's why he took such a long break."
"Remember what he said back then?"
(On Sminem's island vacations)
"It's time for me to make a bow and let the world find it's destiny."
"For now I'll enjoy myself... While I can."
"Maybe... He took the vacation not because he was thinking about himself, but because of everyone else... He didn't want to become someone who would be missed... Not by us, not by the audience."
"Wait, is that person over there...?"
Phoenix & Saihara
"...Guys? What... happened?"
(Wright and Saihara rush to hug Battler)
Thus, Kojima was negated with the Golden Truth, and the Script would never again define the fates of anyone anymore.
However, his producer might have other plans for TFR...

I saw Hideo Kojima at a movie store in Los Angeles yesterday.
"I told him how cool it was to meet him in person, but I didn’t want to be a douche and bother him and ask him for photos or anything.
He said, “I have to have a creative role; otherwise I simply wouldn't come to work ― Hideo Kojima”
I was taken aback, and all I could say was “Huh?” but he kept cutting me off and going “game creation, keeps on expanding, just like the Universe ― Hideo Kojima” and closing his hand shut in front of my face. I walked away and continued with my shopping, and I heard him raugh as I walked off. When I came to pay for my stuff up front I saw him trying to walk out the doors with like fifteen movies in his hands without paying.
The girl at the counter was very nice about it and professional, and was like “Sir, you need to pay for those first.” At first he kept pretending to be not understand english, but eventually turned back around and brought them to the counter.
When she took one of the film cans and started scanning it multiple times, he stopped her and told her “90% of what is considered impossible is, in fact, possible, The other 10% will become possible with that passage of time and technology ― Hideo Kojima” and then turned around and winked at me. I don’t even think that's true. After she scanned each movie and put them in a bag and started to say the price, he kept interrupting her by laughing really loudly or imitating solid snake."
