Senator Armstrong is the main antagonist of the 2013 Metal Gear series game Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance.

Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance was produced by Platinum Games. The game follows the event of Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots.

Steven Armstrong or more commonly known as Senator Armstrong is the antagonist of the game. He is extremely patriotic and nationalistic. His patriotism is in its full fledge form during his fight with Raiden where he tells Raiden that if he's against his plans to restore America's pride, he was against the country. Armstrong's plan was to reform the USA and giving people a right to fight for their own decisions.

As a character, Armstrong is arrogant and has a rather sarcastic attitude. These are his flaws as his arrogance led him to do reckless things that eventually led him to be defeated by Raiden at the end of the game. Armstong is an excellent hand-to-hand combatant with more of a brawl-like style. His strength is something that he acquired from his days in college as a ballplayer and also as a sailor in the US Navy.
