* FauxActionGirl: A deconstruction of it in the first game. She ''badly'' wants to be an ActionGirl, but she's completely inexperienced and in over her head, and has has her illusions destroyed when she learns that WarIsHell.

* FauxActionGirl: A deconstruction of it in the first game. She ''badly'' wants to be an ActionGirl, but she's completely inexperienced and in over her head, and has has her illusions destroyed when she learns that WarIsHell. She actually starts out with an impressive debut, busting herself out of prison and mowing down several enemies in a shootout while allied with Solid Snake. But that's the extent of her glory, as she spends almost the entire remainder of the game wounded and captured, doing nothing else productive except serving as Snake's Jeep driver in the game's final scene.

** ''The Phantom Pain'' ramps this up even further as revealed through cassette tapes, despite appearing as a malignant puppet master as a child, [[spoiler:it's the other way around. The boy is almost completely incapable of controlling anything he does, as his volatile psychic powers are almost entirely controlled/influenced by those around him, particularly the incredibly evil and hateful Man on Fire, Skull Face, and Eli. In fact, the only time the boy's ego leaks out is when he mercy-kills a suffering child. The tapes reveal the only emotion the boy's extremely repressed true personality can muster anymore is bitterness, as he's lived his entire childhood pecked on by emotionless scientists, treated as nothing more than a tool of war. He also unintentionally caused a plane crash, probably killing dozens. Made even MORE sympathetic when it's implied he's Psycho Mantis, who found out his father secretly hated him, accidentally murdered dozens of people including his friends and family in a village fire, and when he finally grew out of his SatelliteCharacter role, tried to use his powers for good by helping the FBI...only to get practically possessed by a psychotic serial killer until his painful death. Geez.]]

* OoCIsSeriousBusiness: [[spoiler: Displays a rather more laid back, less theatrical personality in V. It can be taken as a further hint towards the game's TwistEnding.]]

* NiceHat: He wore a red beret in his youth to signify his membership in the Ocelot Unit. He apparently liked it so much to the point that during his gun duel with Naked Snake, he will rush over to it and put it back on if Snake shoots it off, leaving him open to his attacks.

It's V, not 5. For some reason, Kojima says V, not 5, so you know. Yeah
** 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 ''MetalGearSolid4''. Also, [[spoiler: [=MGS3=] reveals his father was a medium, and [=MGS5=] possibly implies that Liquid also possessed paranormal abilities.]]

* IWasQuiteALooker: Was fairly attractive during his youth in ''Metal Gear Solid 3'' and ''Metal Gear Solid 5''. To be fair, he doesn't really look too terrible in the present either.

* MaybeMagicMaybeMundane: It is stated that Ocelot began his "[[spoiler:Liquid Ocelot]]" ruse as far back as when he had Liquid's actual arm attached (ie. ''Metal Gear Solid 2'''s Tanker and Big Shell Incidents) but he replaces it for a synthetic arm in the intervening time between ''2'' and ''4'' because the initial transplant was unstable and affected his psyche. The implications of this and the apparent cause of instability are left vague, [[spoiler:but given that The Sorrow, a medium is his father, and (according to [=MGS5=]) Liquid himself may or may not have possessed paranormal abilities, it's more than possible that Liquid really was possessing Ocelot for a time.]]

* GoodParents: Unlike his own neglectful father, Otacon treats Sunny likes his own daughter and she has no problem showing that [[HappilyAdopted she adores him.]] In ''Rising'', it's clear that he's done a really good job of raising her, too.

* TheHeart: He and Mei Ling are the only characters who have never betrayed Snake or altered their loyalties. [[spoiler: ''The Phantom Pain'' shines a ''cpmpletely'' different light on him as his mother Strangelove considered him the product of her genes and The Boss' memes. Since his main goal has been to make the world a better place by stopping an arms race and preventing information control, he's one of the only people in the whole series who tries to achieve The Boss' dream through peaceful means.]]

* {{Irony}}: How the GrandFinale of how his and his father's stories end: In ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolidVThePhantomPain'', Huey's ending was the complete opposite on how Hal's was. To elaborate: Huey was basically his son, but in a wheelchair. However, [[spoiler:the atrocities he's committed puts him to shame, thereby ending his 9 year friendship with Big Boss/Venom Snake, and bitterly ended in a suicide]]. Hal never lost sight of everything he's done, holding his 9 year friendship with Snake.
