* WhatHappenedToTheMouse: Despite the fact that OILIX was supposed to end the energy crisis, and it was recovered in the end of the game, no mention of it was ever made again in the Metal Gear Solid games, and ''MetalGearSolid4'' goes out of its way to state that there is still an oil crisis, although this may be an effect of the War Economy.

In ''VideoGame/MetalGearRisingRevengeance'', Doktor, after collecting around 20 left arms from cyborg commanders, will comment that the Patriots had been close to discovering a perpetual energy source prior to their [[spoiler:destruction]], although it is unclear whether this was intended to hint at the Patriots confiscating OILIX to research its properties and mass-produce it or not.
--> Doktor: "More Patriot data, yes... Oh? I had no idea they were so close to a perpetual energy source. Fascinating..."

* UnwittingInstigatorOfDoom: [[spoiler: Ocelot predicts the war economy seen in Metal Gear Solid 4 and puts the blame on Miller. Whether his downplaying of Big Boss's role is due to Ocelot's loyalty or because Miller played the greater administrative role in MSF/Diamond Dogs isn't clarified.]]

* CharacterizationMarchesOn: When Solid Snake contacted Miller during the final battle with Big Boss in Zanzibar, he referred that Big Boss is nothing but a monster that needs to be put down. The Big Boss era instead presents him as Big Boss' right hand man and Miller deeply trusted Big Boss. Nothing was said about how Big Boss ended up becoming a BrokenPedestal for Miller. ''The Phantom Pain'' actually revealed this in the stinger. [[spoiler: To say that Miller felt betrayed by Big Boss' decision to abandon him and build Outer Heaven without him, while Miller was convinced that Venom Snake was the real deal, is putting it quite mildly.]]

* {{Jerkass}}: He has very little confidence in Snake and will often tell him that there’s no way he can beat the boss he’s currently fighting. This works as excellent moral support as it gives the player a determination to prove him wrong.
