*DrivenToSuicide: The Patriots disguise his death as this to cover up [[YouHaveFailedMe their retribution for his failure]].
* SmugSnake: Happily rubs the fact that Colonel Campbell has been arrested and the fact that Shadow Moses is about to be nuked in Snake's face, never losing the shit-eating grin he greets you with.
* YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness: Tells Snake as much once Metal Gear Rex has been destroyed. He actually says he'll spare Snake's life if can bring the Rex test data back with him, but Snake admits that Ocelot took it from him when he was captured.

* ActionSurvivor: Manages to land in the middle of not one, but three ultra deadly covert standoffs that decide the fate of the planet. At first, his survival is seems due to dumb luck (which he has plenty of), then in Metal Gear 4 his hero worship of Snake and Meryl drives him to risk his life against some of the deadliest soldiers on the planet.

** On a subtler note, "Mantis" is derived from "Mantodea," the Greek and Latin word for "Prophet," which emphasizes his psychic abilities further still.

* ArtisticLicenseBiology: Gets a lot of things wrong about genetics during his MotiveRant, though at least some of this might be because he just needs to explain it better. Also in ''[[VideoGame/MetalGearSolid2SonsOfLiberty Metal Gear Solid 2]]'', it is revealed by Emma Emmerich that [[spoiler:the Patriots have spread much false information throughout society, including on biology. Considering that Liquid's childhood was highly influenced by the Patriots, he probably was outright lied to about biology.]]
** Given a certain revelation in ''Phantom Pain'' (namely, [[spoiler:he actually ''did'' fail biology as a subject in school]]), it's also probable he's just wrong on the particulars. It should also be noted that this whole mess is [[EarlyInstallmentWeirdness never mentioned]] in any other games- every time LET is discussed, no mention is made of this Recessive/Dominant nonsense.

* EvenEvilHasStandards: In [[spoiler:codec calls to Miller/Liquid during the first boss battle]], he mentions that Ocelot is too warped even for him.
** He claims to be disgusted at Snake for slaughtering their "brothers" the Genome Soldiers, saying ''he'' at least cares about their ''family''. Whether he' sincere or not is left unclear, seeing as he declares this very late in the game.

* [[MyHairCameOutGreen My Hair Came Out Blond]]: According to Yoji Shinkawa, Liquid was originally dark-haired, just like Snake. However, it ended up bleached to blond as a consequence of his time as a POW, because of the sun's intense rays within the Iraqi desert. Interestingly, Snake was originally going to be a natural blond, too; hence his lighter hair color in the briefing videos.

* AwesomeAnachronisticApparel: He loves old gunslinger imagery, and fancies himself one. His outfits at Mother Base and Shadow Moses reflect this.
** He and his pack of EliteMooks, the Ocelot Unit, wear the red/maroon berets of the Spetznaz GRU, the black combat uniform of the Naval Infantry, the black telnyashka (striped shirt) of the Soviet Navy, and the knee-high black leather officer's boots (opposed to the trooper's boots used by KGB and GRU). It seems Major Ocelot has a ''lot'' of leeway with putting together his unit.

* BizarreAndImprobableBallistics: The "Master of Ricochet." Ocelot can somehow bounce his bullets off walls and other objects to go exactly where he wants. The trick to beating him is to not reveal your location; if he ''sees'' you duck and cover, it's all over.
** Also carries over to ''MGO'', where Ocelot can fire trickshots to hit enemies who are hiding behind cover.
* BodyHorror: When Liquid possesses Ocelot in "[=MGS2=]," and when he fully takes control in "[=MGS4=]". [[spoiler:Somewhat subverted, when it's revealed he orchestrated his own possession by "Liquid" as part of a larger gambit to defeat the Patriots.]]
** Though as stated below under MaybeMagicMaybeMundane, he may have been legitimately possessed by Liquid at some point when he had Liquid's arm attached to him, as he did have Liquid's voice during the end of ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolid2SonsOfLiberty'', while he did not during ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolid4GunsOfThePatriots''. Also, [[spoiler: [=MGS3=] reveals his father was a medium, and [=MGSV=] possibly implies that Liquid also possessed paranormal abilities.]]

* CharacterizationMarchesOn: He expressed a possible interest in both Sniper Wolf and Meryl in ''Metal Gear Solid'', but soon jettisoned the DirtyOldMan part of his character makeup. In fact, he was outwardly repulsed by EVA's ridiculous perfume and breast implants, and shows no interest in [[ShamelessFanserviceGirl Quiet]] showering when all the other male soldiers are ogling her. In hindsight it's possible his behavior towards Wolf and Meryl may have been just to {{Troll}} them.
** Also confirmed in V that Ocelot is gay, so he really was just trying to {{Troll}} them.
* CharacterTic: He has a tendency to twirl or juggle his guns.
** (Hand Gestures): The second game gives him Liquid's hand which causes him seizures. It would take him over in the fourth.

* ColdBloodedTorture: Ocelot seems to think of torture as a sport.
** He does elaborate in ''The Phantom Pain'' that "it's not a matter of art," and attempts to justify his interest by insisting that being good at torture is "the best way to keep both questioner and subject safe" and gets them quick results. Miller doesn't believe him for a second.

* MultipleChoicePast: Naomi mentioned that, according to his official case file, after the fall of the Soviet Union, he briefly worked as a member of the Russian Tax Police, OMOR, and the successor unit to the KGB, but left due to not liking the rigid rules. However, the ''Metal Gear Solid 4 Database'' indicates that the case file was actually falsified to cover up his allegiance to the Patriots.

* WoobieDestroyerOfWorlds: He saw little point in the "selfish desire of passing their genes on." The (questionably canon) ''Official Missions Handbook'' seems to heighten his stance, where it claims that he actually wants to end up dying because a parasite (a byproduct of those with genuine psychic powers) was making him do bad things despite his best efforts to control it, because when he is dying, it will be gone, and then he'll at least briefly experience a peace in mind.

* CharlesAtlasSuperpower: Raven's main power is "being really, really big." This apparently allows him to use a ~600 pound-plus-ammo M61 Vulcan cannon. And in ''The Twin Snakes'', he casually grabs one of those big-ass metal storage crates and chucks it at Snake like it was a beanbag.

* BunnyEarsLawyer / DitzyGenius: Particularly in his first appearance. He's a brilliant engineer who developed advanced optical camouflage as a ''side project'' but also a consummate fanboy who gets his weapons design ideas from mecha anime. There's an implication that he was recruited not only because he was one of the very few people who could make Metal Gear REX a reality...but also because Otacon was one of the even fewer nutty and naive enough to actually ''try''. In later games he's considerably more savvy without losing many of his eccentricities.
