* AmericansHateTingle: When Metal Gear Solid 2 was initially release, Raiden receive lots of hate in the West (especially among the Anglo sphere) for his relatively effeminate characteristics (by American standards and especially compared to series' cast), not being "{{badass}}" enough and incredibly naïve (see AudienceSurrogate below), and most of all for replacing Snake as the protagonist in the second-half of the game. Averted by the fourth game after [[TookALevelInBadass taking a complete revamp in personality and character design]] and transforming into a cyborg that gave him a distinct gameplay style in later installments.

* BatDeduction: He deduces that Pliskin is not a Navy SEAL just because he quotes the mottos of both the Marines and the British SAS, which is even more illogical since Stillman himself recognises both and he isn't a Navy SEAL either. He's ''right'', but the fact that Pliskin knows and quotes two different special forces groups is hardly grounds for that. He also decides that even though Pliskin is an impostor, he can be trusted, based on little more than the vibe he gets from him.

* CharacterDevelopment: Goes from an apparent NaiveNewcomer to an [[spoiler:ex-ChildSoldier trying to [[AwfulTruth live out a hero fantasy]] to a {{jade|ColoredGlasses}}d soldier fighting ForGreatJustice to a reluctant AxCrazy {{Ubermensch}}]]. He's a good guy all the way through and though.

Added DiffLines:

* CompositeCharacter: He inherited a lot of his abilities from [[http://metalgear.wikia.com/wiki/Chinaman Chinaman]], a character that was cut during the game's development for [[http://www.metalgearsolid.net/features/yoji-shinkawa-interview being too similar to Vamp in terms of combat style]]. This explains why he's seen meditating in the room where you fight him, since Chinaman was a mystic and martial artist.

A new Metal Gear created by the United States Marine Corps. Despite it being a Metal Gear it's purpose was to be an "Anti-Metal Gear" weapon designed to destroy the competition. Ray was also mass-produced into a small army of unmanned units built to protect Arsenal Gear from attack.

** Even his [[spoiler:dark and tragic backstory]] adds to the idea of audience escapism - just as the audience is using video games for escapism purposes, so is Raiden using the VR to try and escape his own past.
