* IShallTauntYou: While playable, his AR mode is replaced with a taunt that enrages enemies that are engaging him. This causes them to attack recklessly and with more strength behind their swings, but also increases the damage they take. [[EasterEgg He also has his own original quotes with [[spoiler:Senator Armstrong]]]], [[ThatOneBoss but is kinda difficult to hear them.]]

* ImageSong: [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KfwteoZCvoY The Only Thing I Know For Real]], describing Sam's own confusion in his own beliefs and that bloodshed is the only thing he knows at this point.

* ImageSong: [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jynTNYSKNuk Red Sun]], a guitar-heavy song dedicated basically to Sundowner's glorious love of blood and war, literally describing it as Eden.

* ImageSong: [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pz01CVHVM_0 A Stranger I Remain]], left over from [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U4WYd_SUBbg Here I Come]]. It details the isolation Mistral feels from other people and how alive she feels in battle. Probably one of the most contributing factors in the metaphorical see-saw on whether she's good, evil, or both.

Probably one of the most contributing factors in the metaphorical see-saw on whether she's good, evil, or both.



* FragileSpeedster: The swiftest of the trio, speed is Monsoon's defining trait: he chains his attacks in rapid succession and can strike from multiple angles, giving the player little in the way of breathing room. He's not as burly as Sundowner, but his attacks still pack quite the punch (such as [[LauncherMove launching]] Raiden into the air with a kick and them [[MeteorMove slamming him back to the ground... hard]], only to [[DeathFromAbove pounce from the skies]], pin Raiden to the asphalt, and [[KickThemWhileTheyAreDown stab him repeatedly and mercilessly]]), Monsoon can easily stunlock and daze a player who has yet to master the art of parrying, and he can take it just about as well as he dishes it out, [[DetachmentCombat provided you can land a hit at all]]. There's a reason many are quick to cite him as ThatOneBoss the first time around. Interestingly enough, looking at the game files shows he actually has more health than Sundowner despite being much smaller than him. Then again, Monsoon does have the most cybernetic parts of the Winds of Destruction.

* ImageSong: [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-Cp7bwObW8E The Stains of Time]], a song detailing Monsoon's nihilism and belief in war as a parallel to nature, also seen as a dedication to ThePowerOfHate as well.

* LeanAndMean: When compared to other cyborgs, such as his fellow Winds of Destruction members. He's also the tallest of the group at 202 cm (roughly 6'8'').
* MagnetismManipulation: [[PsychoElectro Monsoon]]'s gimmick is Electromagnetism. Since his body is just segments put together by magnets, he does DetachmentCombat by shooting his segments at you. Throughout his BossBattle, he also uses magnetism to throw tanks and choppers at Raiden. Finally, his BossBanter consists of referencing GeniusBonus terms like Lorentz Force and Left Hand Rule (which can be confused as the ''other'' [[UsefulNotes/{{Satanism}} Left-hand-Rule]], or rather, Path.)

* TheCoatsAreOff: [[AvertedTrope Averted]], at no point does he take off his coat due to the fact that Monsoon is the only member of the Winds of Destruction to never be shown wearing some form of coat when not in battle. [[JustifiedTrope Justified]] as wearing a coat would mitigate his [[DetachmentCombat combat style]].

* ImageSong: [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IRWyLHoCqTU The Hot Wind Blowing]] a song that can be a bit more difficult to decipher than others. It seems to straddle Khamsin's genuine desire to bring justice and freedom to Abkhazia, but also details that he "knows no disgrace" because his moral compass is off. There is also a heavy bit of the song that seems to imply his pride at being a Wind of Destruction.

Added DiffLines:

* MeaningfulName: His name sounds like "mnemonic", meaning "relating to memory" or "designed to aid in memory", and the powerful memory of his death is the initial force that drives Raiden to go after Desperado Enforcement.

->'''Theme song:''' Collective Consciousness
Another Metal Gear built by the United States this weapon was not kept secret like other Metal Gears. Also unlike other MG weapons it does not contain nuclear firepower, but it can use retractable blades, fire two large plasma cannons to attack, and can also tunnel under ground.



* {{BFS}}: Two of them. Raiden ultimately severs one and uses it to BladeLock with the other.
* HoistByHisOwnPetard: Raiden ends up using one of its own retractable blades to put it down for good.
* HumongousMecha: Keeping in traditional Metal Gear fashion being gigantic in size. It was designed to be huge and highly visible specifically so that civilians would know to flee when it was sighted, allowing it to fight enemy combatants without fear of collateral damage.
* MeaningfulName: Excelsus means high or lofty. It's also the species name of the Apatosaurus dinosaur.
* RoarBeforeBeating: Metal Gear EXCELSUS roars at Raiden before the battle against him begins.
* ThereIsNoKillLikeOverkill: With cyborgs quickly becoming prominent on battlefields and proving to be far more dangerous than previous Metal Gears, this Metal Gear was designed to overwhelm them with sheer brute force.
