* GayOption: A side mission in Peace Walker is explicitly called "A Date with Kaz" allowing Big Boss to go on a date with him on a beach. While it amounts to "mess around with him using non-lethal weaponry as much as you want", most actions raise his affection meter and ends by the two of them climbing into "The Love Box" doing some... implied actions... inside of it. Also you can take pictures of him in a speedo if you have it unlocked. Also worth noting is that the mission has him calling Snake up and inviting him on the date rather then the other way around.

Master Miller, real name Kazuhira / [=McDonell=] Benedict Miller, was the Japanese mentor of Solid Snake, who helped him in Zanzibar Land.

A rather amiable man, driven by duty, and one of Solid Snake's closest friends, Campbell has been around for a long time. He's an old friend of Big Boss' and helped him defeat Gene in ''Portable Ops'' before helping establish FOXHOUND.

The bad ending of [=MGS1=] reveals that he is [[spoiler:Meryl Silverburgh’s father, a fact that she did not know for most of her life]].

* ByTheBookCop: Miller was a deconstruction of this trope while he was a JSDF officer. His skills in the force were unmatched, but the head brass chose not to promote him with those skills because they feared the skills.
* TheCasanova / ChivalrousPervert: Miller is shown to be a playboy and womanizer during his youth. A notable instance is when he picks up Cecile on Big Boss's orders partly because she was a blond Parisenne (initially, he was going to refuse due to Mother Base having little room left for civilians). This attribute also got him into deep trouble.
* CharacterizationMarchesOn: When Solid Snake contacted Miller during the final battle with Big Boss in Zanzibar, the latter claimed that Big Boss is nothing but a monster that needs to be put down. The prequel era games instead present him as Big Boss' right hand man and close confidante. Nothing was said about how Big Boss ended up becoming a BrokenPedestal for Miller until ''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.]]
* CombatSadomasochist: Is implied to be this in the (optional) date with Kaz mission. Basically, CQC him into unconsciousness and wait for him to wake up, and he will act oddly happy about it, and doing it three times or more will likewise result in getting an S-rank.
* CoolShades: A trademark of him since ''Metal Gear Solid'', to the extent that they even significantly altered his original face portrait to make him more in line with his "appearance" in ''Metal Gear Solid''.
