** [[spoiler:'''Murasama''': Jetstream Sam's high-frequency blade, made from a samurai sword forged by the legendary weaponsmith Muramasa. Raiden gains it during the fight against Senator Armstrong, using it to replace his broken sword, and can use it in a new playthrough as his primary weapon.]]

** [[spoiler:'''Murasama''': Jetstream Sam's high-frequency blade, made from a samurai sword forged by the legendary weaponsmith Muramasa. The conversion from an actual katana makes the blade's cutting power stronger than other HF Blades.

Added DiffLines:

** This eventually leads into DivergentCharacterEvolution in regards to their combat styles. While both are trained in all sorts of weapons and can sneak or fight depending on the circumstances, Snake prefers guns and stealth while Raiden can charge into battle with just his HF Blade and come out no worse for wear.

* 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.

** Also probably worth mentioning that she brings these up as hypothetical examples of the ''kinds'' of things Arsenal Gear could do, not necessarily as actual examples.

* 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.
