* AchillesHeel: Armstrong's nanomachines can only seem to respond to one high intensity attack in one area at a time- Raiden uses this during the last portion of their fight to stab Armstrong through his midsection after slashing him across his upper body, while Sam is able to use his gunsheath to cut off Armstrong's arm before his nanomachines can completely harden it.

to:

* AchillesHeel: Armstrong's body is infused with nanomachines can that harden almost instaneously toward physical trauma or mental command, but it seems that it needs to converge its power at only seem to respond to one area of his body in order to block high intensity attack in one area at a time- attacks, such as Murasama strikes. Raiden uses this during the last portion of their fight to stab by slashing Armstrong across his upper body, before proceeding to quickly stab through his midsection after slashing him across his upper body, while to critically injure him. On the other hand, Sam is able to use his gunsheath to cut off Armstrong's arm before his nanomachines can completely harden it.

Added DiffLines:

* LikeCannotCutLike: It applies to every High Frequency Blades in the game, but it's particularly noticeable with his Murasama. It is superior to any other HF Blades in terms of quality, durablity and cutting power, but it cannot damage Raiden's fairly standard HF Blade. It is even more noticeable when [[spoiler:Armstrong shatters Raiden's HF Blade with his nanomachine armored skin, something Sam's blade cannot do, yet the Murasama can damage the nanomachines.]]

** '''LQ-84i''': Recognizing and properly responding to Armstrong's startup animations is key to surviving the following attacks. However, Armstrong's startup animations are harder to tell apart, and incorrect predictions tend to set you up for a damaging punish.

* TooCleverByHalf: Sam's attempts to take advantage of his very high level of intelligence often backfire spectacularly. In the main game, his attempting to [[BreakThemByTalking convince Raiden to join Desperado]] leads to Raiden becoming even deadlier.
** Even moreso in the ''Jetstream'' dlc, where his attempt to finish Armstong quickly by severing his arm proves his downfall, while [[WordOfGod Kojima has said that he could have worn Armstrong down until his nanomachines ran out of power]] and successfully beaten him.

* SpellMyNameWithAnS: His katana is called the Mura''sama'', not the Mura''masa''. According to the writers, this was meant to reflect how transferring names and histories between real-life cultures tends to create inaccuracies.

** Even more so in the ''Jetstream'' DLC. His attempt to finish Armstrong quickly by severing his arm proves to be his downfall, but if he'd taken Raiden's route of simply wearing out the nanomachines, the fight might've gone differently.

* RedBaron: "The Californian wildfire," used by Kevin during a codec call.



* RedBaron: She introduces herself to Raiden as "the cold wind of France."



* TheCoatsAreOff: {{Averted|Trope}}, 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. {{Justified|Trope}} as wearing a coat would mitigate his [[DetachmentCombat combat style]].

to:

* RedBaron: None in-game, but the ambient track during his introduction scene calls him "the surge of blood."

* RedBaron: He's "the desert storm" and proud of it.



** FinalExamBoss: His tactics echo those of the Winds of Destruction, making all of their battles a lead up to him. This is taken further in the Jetstream DLC, where he also has Monsoon's SelectiveMagnetism. If you haven't mastered every single mechanic of the combat system, Armstrong will ''wreck'' you.

** * FinalExamBoss: His tactics echo those of the Winds of Destruction, making all of their battles a lead up to him. This is taken further in the Jetstream DLC, where he also has Monsoon's SelectiveMagnetism. If you haven't mastered every single mechanic of that the combat system, other bosses demanded, Armstrong will ''wreck'' you.you.
** '''LQ-84i''': Recognizing and properly responding to Armstrong's startup animations is key to surviving the following attacks. However, Armstrong's startup animations are harder to tell apart, and incorrect predictions tend to set you up for a damaging punish.
** '''Mistral''': Certain parts of the fight provide scripted Blade Mode setups that let the player chop off Mistral's arms or her spear. With Armstrong, Blade Mode is absolutely required during certain quick-time events that target his arms, and he can heal himself infinitely unless the player ''manually'' uses Blade Mode to hit him in the back.
** '''GRAD''': Armstrong's movement is both faster and more flexible than Raiden's, so understanding approach tools like Dystopia and purchasable DashAttack skills is the only way to keep up with him.
** '''Monsoon''': Beating Monsoon requires that the player has mastered parrying. Armstrong requires that the player do it with better reflexes.
** '''Sundowner''': His explosive-shield gimmick can only be defeated by lining up the Blade Mode plane through multiple boxes. Armstrong's rubble-tossing attack demands the same skill, except performed multiple times in a row and at different angles.
** '''Sam''': Sam teaches defensive play by blocking overeager attacks. Armstrong doesn't even flinch from them, and he has enough HP to take a few attacks before hitting back with more power.

* TheDogBitesBack: [[spoiler:Sam tells Bladewolf to give his sword to Raiden if he ended up losing their duel. Before the Murasama's ID lock disabled, Raiden only had ScratchDamage at his disposal through both his HF Blade and his hand-to-hand. While Sam probably had something like KatanasAreJustBetter in mind, he actually ended up giving Raiden a weapon capable of killing Armstrong.]]

* DeadpanSnarker: Deconstructed. He's more of a goof than any other combatant in the game, but both the main story and his DLC imply that he isn't fighting at his full potential because he doesn't take fights seriously. Even when Sam fights [[spoiler:Armstrong]], a man he intensely hated, his taunts just [[BerserkButton mock the guy's age]] and [[IsThatWhatTheyreCallingItNow ask if he conducts every "job interview" like this]].



* SimpleYetAwesome: Essentially how he handles stunned enemies during the quick time event that makes them vulnerable. Instead of the acrobatic stuff that Raiden does, he just kicks them really hard.

** Sam's moveset is a lot smaller than Raiden's and none of his combos use more than four inputs. However, since the moves he ''does'' have are extremely distinct in their purpose without being situational or weak, it's a lot easier to memorize everything Sam can do and start putting together combos.



* StealthBasedMission: Averted as much as possible in his DLC. Sam cannot perform stealth kills, has no AR mode for scoping out enemies, and never collects any sub-weapons that don't directly damage opponents [[note]]3D photo frames, jamming grenades, EM grenades, and RP grenades[[/note]]. He ''does'' get a chance at using a cardboard box, though.
