* In retrospect, playing through the entire series shows how Solid Snake is better than his predecessors. Big Boss and his allies, despite having an entire army at their disposal, chose to walk down a dark path that starts yet another cycle of destruction. Solid Snake instead chose to be ''genuinely'' good despite knowing that he is a mere pawn in the system who was massively outnumbered and manipulated at every turn. When he learned [[spoiler:he is about to become a walking bio-weapon]] in the ending of VideoGame/MetalGearSolid4GunsOfThePatriots, he chose to [[spoiler: [[HeroicSacrifice blow his own brain out with a pistol, in order to save the world despite how much shit it gave him]] before Big Boss interrupted]]. Solid may die cold and unremembered, but at least he understood the true importance of ''life'', and was willing to give away his own for the sake of billions without any compromise.

* At the very end, [[spoiler:Big Boss, despite the FOXDIE ravaging his body, and barely being able to stand, saluting The Boss' gravestone one last time. His hand, his entire ''body'' trembles, but suddenly he goes still and '''snaps''' to attention in honour of the woman who defined not only his life, but perhaps the entire world as he and Snake knew it.]]

** [[spoiler:Campbell]] also gets one for [[pretending to be Rose's husband]], knowing full well what doing so would do to his relationship with [[spoiler:his daughter, Meryl.]] Doubles as A Crowning Moment of Heartwarming, showing the lengths [[spoiler:Campbell]] was willing to take to protect Raiden and Raiden's family.
* In ''Guns of the Patriots,'' the Missouri's Marines are very awesome, if you think about what's actually going on here. By the final act, we know that many soldiers from non-Outer Heaven-owned PMCs as well as state militaries are deserting because of SOP withdrawal, and those are the ones who ''aren't'' so slammed with battlefield trauma they're permanently broken or suffering heart attacks. Thus, the Missouri's Marines [[FridgeLogic must all come from two groups]]; either combat veterans who are in the minority of those able to ''barely'' hang on without SOP, or total rookies who have ''never seen combat,'' let alone ''ever fired their weapon at an enemy'' since getting out of basic training. And they ''still do their job,'' holding the line long enough for Snake to get the job done despite being overwhelmed in numbers and firepower, by an enemy with more experience and the advantages of SOP, watching each other be gunned down by Haven troopers left and right. ''Semper Fi.''

** Otacon deserves his own mention here, both for designing and building a mech durable enough to be able to hop up and fight after being abandoned (and to the Alaskan elements no less) for nearly ten years AND the fact that it was able to [[spoiler: fight toe to toe]] with a mech technologically superior and ''designed'' to be able to combat mechs like REX after Otacon slaved in some extra processing power. And the fact that Otacon was able to do this with a few presses of a button...

* In a meta example: Remember all that craziness from [=MGS2=] and the ending? This game somehow took all that and got it to make sense, completely in context with the series as a whole to boot!

*** [[spoiler: It's also a moment for Otacon and his quirky design traits as a factor in REX's victory is a program he put in it for fun, a 'Street Fighter' program enabling full use of Rex's traits in a close combat. The designers of Rex did not know about this at all.]]

*** [[spoiler: It's also a moment for Otacon and his quirky design traits as a factor in REX's victory is a program he put in it for fun, a 'Street Fighter' program enabling full use of Rex's traits in a close combat. The designers of Rex did not know about this at all.all and had actually vetoed the program's inclusion, believing that Rex's systems were too delicate. Fast-forward to MGS4, where one special attack involves repeatedly ''headbutting'' Ray into a building. The other designers clearly didn't know what a beast they had created.]]
