Is the Master Chief Noble 6?

Update: Played the game, he aint in it. :(


Update 2: The Master Chief appears in Reach as an Easter Egg


Update 3: Check out the anger in the comments!


Is the Master Chief Noble 6? No. The Master Chief is not the spartan referred to as Noble 6. Noble 6 is the Lone Wolf. The Unnamed Spartan. The Ghost Who Walks. You know, the spartan that survived Pegasi, sir. In fact you are Noble 6. You get to inhabit the character as you venture across the planet Reach with team Noble. 

This is not the Master Chief. He's having a sleep on the Amber Clad.

Damn, so is 117 in Reach at all? Only as a guest cameo Easter Egg:





It's not all lost though - Microsoft has confirmed the Chief will be back for other Halo games...

This is the Master Chief.  Awake.

I think ODST proved you don't HAVE to HAVE the Master Chief in a Halo game... and hence I look forward to playing as Lone Wolf... but that next halo game from Microsoft better have Chiefy!!!!!!!

I stilled missed the Cheif in Reach. Sort of was hoping he'd coem in and save the day somehow.

Someone should save you from your horrid spelling skills. That said, Halo Reach is a great game to begin the series with. The addition of special powers you can use sparingly as well as the reintroduction of a pistol that can be zoomed in like any other scoped weapon (see Halo 1 for the last time this was available)makes Halo Reach a fresh game, but the same one you always loved. The introduction of new weapons is great, since they don't deem the old weapons obsolete. Overall a great game!

woah, that was some shite wording. fixed.

master chief is not noble six but a clone because at the end they say with your curege we can rebuild you. so he dosent remember anything but he is master chief.

Master Chief does actually make an appearance: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NRrv6rcu90Y

Jimmy Jangles said...

Wow. Thanks dude that is an awesome Easter Egg!

Jimmy Jangles said...

As for the chief being a clone.... well that's just stupid.

Well if you guys look carefully at the ending cinematics theres an easter egg where you pull the analog stick to the right in the Pelican scene where you can see the Chief in the cyro-chamber ready to start Halo 1 so technically the Chief's still in reach

Fatal said...

I loved the way they put Chief into the game it was pretty awesome if you ask me

jon said...

You moron John-117 and B-312 are not in any way the same. Noble 6 is a Spartan III and the Chief is a Spartan II, born many years before Noble Six, and with roughly 20 years combat experience over him.

EuphoricDorian said...

Anyone who thinks Noble Six is John is a freaking moron. Ever heard of a book? Try reading one. The halo books tell about what happened to him during reach and they never once mention him being part of Noble Team. He was the leader of his own team morons. Do some freaking research before you come to these wild and crazy assumptions that dont even have a freaking leg to stand on.

counsel said...

Yet, cortana chose him.... The video doesn't show 6 die...

6 = master chief

Jimmy Jangles said...

6 is not chief. Chief was ALREADY on the amber clad when 6 died.

figman123456 said...

Right i do get that noble 6 isn't master chief. But on halo 3 Cortana says out of all the Spartans she chose you. But on the game that doctor person said Cortana had chosen you so that does point to you being master chief. :S and you do never actually see six die. and as for the books they are Irrelevant because there not written by bungie there for they are not the true story.

Anonymous said...

I thought the Chief was on the Autumn, not the Amber Clad.
I didn't read the books or anything, so forgive my shallow insight; it's just that Reach takes place mere weeks before Halo: CE, and, as Keyes says in CE, they had to make a blind jump from Reach.

Jimmy Jangles said...

Ya,I prolly mixed the names of the ships up.

ok look at the time lines guys there is no way Noble 6 could be cheif i have most the Halo missing this and ODST but i have played them and beaten them all i know that master cheif was chosen and so was noble 6 but that dosnet mean there the same god dag person

Anonymous said...

Who is the idiot saying, 1 MC is 6 and 2. the books are irrelevant. The answer to #1, he isn't read the books. #2 Bungie approved the books and added them to the halo time-line, if you actually went to the Halo franchise's official website you would know that.

6 did die and it shows u to elites gang on him and shove a energy sword through him the helm in the end and begging is his to

Noble 6 is you. He's whoever you want him to be. When you play Reach you customize your spartan because it's you, when you play halo 3 you don't because your character is master chief. END OF DISCUSSION.

Master chief isn't six master chief is spartan2 and six is younger being a spartan1 plus six died if you listen to the end of recharge it says he died but his body is with reach and his courage is with them

Anonymous said...

Master Chief is NOT Noble Six, Yes they were both Chosen, Six dies in the end. This game takes place right before Halo 1 Literally as soon as they Jump to Hyperspace and exit it. They found Halo. And Master Chief wakes up. Sorry guys but Six is not Master Chief.

Anonymous said...

Noble 6 is not Master Chief , at the end on Reach as Cp. Keays (can't spell his name ) as he enters back onto the pillar of autumn in the fmv the camera can be turned, move it to the right and you will see Chief in the Machine thingy but do it quickly the scene only lasts for a second

Reflexed sniper said...

ok master cheif is profeceser anders
lol jk hes not 6 ill tell u tht six dies ok. master cheif is in a cut scene in the game and most likley noble 6 for all we know could just be a clone of master cheif .master cheif is older and cortana did choose them both but if u think about it if 6 is a clone he must have mc's DNA so she choose him because technacly there the same person they are both hyper leathal.and shit for all we know 6 could just be master cheifs son cause spartans do all that work they need some lovin time too. lol want to tlk more send me an email at coriec6@live.com or add me on xbox live gt= (Relexed sniper) now yall have a nice day .

Anonymous said...

its simple
cortana chose six to carry her to the pillar of autumn cause she knew he would make it.

Anonymous said...

....have none of you realized that six can be a girl and im pretty sure cheif is not a girl cortana choose six to be the courier (Guardian.

americandude015 said...

noble six is not master chief because six dies at the end of the mission lone wolf cause at beginning of the game you see a helmet on the ground which is six's and at the end of the game you see him drop his helmet before he gets killed and in fact in Dr.halsey's speech she even says "your victory was so close if only you could have lived to see it"

Bob said...

If six was chief then he would have been in the Mac cannon. Also cortana would have been in a little card like in halo 3. The truth is six is not chief:) but if u beat reach with all skulls on and ur on legendary u can get the Master Chiefs armour.

Chuck, Norris said...

Lol, Cortana was in a card, she was just in that little tube thingy lol, and ummm, 6 isn't a clone, 6 is hes/her own spartan, If six didn't deliver cortana then umm,then the unsc would've lost lol, its true, without cortana, chief would've turned on the halo ring, resulting in, no one winning, which would've sucked XD ummm, yead

bad joker said...

Master chief is great at cooking so why don't he go and make some food instead of fighting off some kind of stupid alien race called cavenet? is that what you all them? Anyways, you get the point right? no? mabe left then?

Anonymous said...

OK anybody who is thinking that 6 is chief he is not because when u see the cut scene of chief in the auttoum 6 is at the mac gun. and all of you who said that cortana chose 6 u r right but only to be her carrier she chose cheif to be her spartan

allen abundez said...

6 is not chief theres no way like anoymos said cortana only chose 6 for him to carry her over there to the piller if 6 was chief dont you think instead of saying negative i have to die cortana wouldve said john come on and 6 wouldve gottin on and besides if 6 was chief how did he die then come back to life alone with cortana in space and this is final 6 is NOT chief

ok heres the correct chronological timeline people: John was taken in at 6 years old as part of the spartan II project (project ORION)he trained with OTHER SPARTAN II's like Kelly and Fred and Isaac and Grace (if youve read the books). Spartan III's were created later, and due to the lack of funding, their armor was made slightly weaker than Spartan II armor (explained in the Ghost of Onyx) they were sent to attack a Covenant Shipyard on Pegasus, a suicide mission which only few survived. Lone Wolf was one of the remaining Spartan III's (if you've read Ghost of Onyx, some other spartan III's met up with Kelly and Doctor Halsey on Onyx after they met MC after Halo Combat Evolved). anyways, both spartan II's and III's were deployed on Reach, according to Halo: Fall of Reach. As to Cortana's "choosing" of either spartan, she had chosen the Cheif LOOOONG before reach. they had been together ever since the MJOLNIR armor was recreated to have energy shields. This is why in Halo Combat Evolved, Cortana talked so familiarily with the chief in the cutscene after you get to the bridge. Cortana only chose noble 6 to bring her to the Pillar of Autumn. the cutscene after the chapter "Lone Wolf" in Halo Reach when Cortana was saying how 6's courage will always be with Reach happens AFTER halo 3, when the war was over. The chief, after the original Halo explodes, gets off in a longsword, meets up with a few survivors in a pelican (including Johnson) then goes BACK to Reach, finds Halsey and some other Spartan II's in her underground Base (yes the same one that noble team left her in after taking cortana) then captures a covenant flagship and goes towards earth. during which, Halsey and Kelly 087 mysteriously leaves (they go to onyx and meet up with the Spartan III's there, and enter some kind of portal to the shield world.) The chief destroys a coventant "fueling center" right outside of human controlled space, then goes back to earth. Halo 2 happens, the chief leaves cortana on High Charity and goes back to earth riding on the forrunner ship, Dreadnaught. he apparently gets caputured for a while by the covenant for a while and escapes before halo 3 starts (theres a comic which i havent read which lapses between halo 2 and 3). Halo 3 then occurs, masterchief is seperated from the arbiter in the end and is seen floating in space. The Halo 4 trailer is the latest piece of information we have in the story. The Cheif is scene drifting towards an opening portal, which (in my speculation) is probably the same shield world that the remaining spartan III's from Onyx and Kelly and Halsey went. and there you go. thats halo so far. in conclusion, NOBLE 6 IS NOT FUCKING MASTERCHIEF.

Thanks for posting that run down of halo lore i'm new ti halo & just started reach

Anonymous said...

Ya ok I know the 6 is not MC. But I still don't care. Noble 6 is still my favorite character in the Halo series.

deathangel 387 said...

Master chief is not a clone, but noble 6 is in fact master chief. He was rebuilt and brought back to life. That is why he is a cyborg. That is why and the end they said we can rebuild you. what you saw in the ship is master chiefs armor that he uses. in many of the commercials and previews for the new halo 4 tv series it shows armor inside of cases just as the master chiefs armor was in a case at the end of reach.
