* BadassNormal: The Fury has no powers, just a highly-resilient spacesuit, a jetpack, and an overpowered flamethrower. [[spoiler:SubvertedTrope, as it turns out he was possessed the entire time according to ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolidVThePhantomPain''. See DemonicPossession.]]

* DeadAllAlong: [[spoiler:This is revealed to have been the case in ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolidVThePhantomPain''. Rather than merely suffering extreme burns and becoming a ShellShockedVeteran by his experience with reentry, he had ''died'' on reentry, and his body had undergone DemonicPossession by an unknown [[OurGhostsAreDifferent pyrokinetic entity]] that was unable to escape his body due to him [[{{Determinator}} keeping his sense of self]]. This entity was later used in the creation of the Man on Fire from Volgin's corpse.]]
* DemonicPossession: [[spoiler:He was dead the entire time in his fight with Naked Snake. His body had been commandeered by a pyrokinetic entity that fed on his UnstoppableRage to keep him going. [[VideoGame/MetalGearSolidVThePhantomPain This entity was later moved into Volgin in 1984.]]]]
* {{Determinator}}: [[spoiler:His sheer rage kept him from losing his sense of self to the entity that resurrected him.]]



* OurZombiesAreDifferent: [[spoiler:See DemonicPossession and DeadAllAlong.]]

%%* HighClassGlass* HighClassGlass: Rather surprising for a communist to wear one.



* YourCheatingHeart: Invoked and ultimately averted. When Naked Snake first saw Tatyana (Volgin using her as leverage against Sokolov), he initially thought Sokolov had a girlfriend (note, Sokolov's married and has a daughter). Actually, Tatyana was actually posing as Volgin's lover. The closest she actually has to a relationship with Sokolov is the fact that she was his superior and an errand-girl to Khrushchev. [[spoiler:Or so he believed]].

* {{Badass}}: For one, she personally trained Big Boss himself.



* {{Badass}}: Just watch some of the awesome she pulls off with her Mauser.



%%* {{Badass}}



* {{Badass}}: Despicable as he is, he is a very powerful fighter who can break opponents' bones with his immense strength and can also take alot of punishment.

* Fiction500: With the Philosophers' Legacy, he's so ludicrously wealthy that he can afford to personally mass-produce the Shagohod. It's to the point that the U.S. was [[spoiler: perfectly willing to sacrifice The Boss, ''the'' greatest soldier the world has ever known, just to get their hands on the Legacy]].

* BadBoss: According to ''[[VideoGame/MetalGearSolidPeaceWalker Peace Walker]]''. [[spoiler:Paz Andrade Ortega/Pacifica Ocean]] was terrified of failing him and considered incurring his wrath a FateWorseThanDeath. [[spoiler:Although a secret tape in ''The Phantom Pain'' shows that he was rather amiable to her, implying that she was afraid of the organisation rather than the man himself.]]

* RealityEnsues: Near the end of the game, after crashing her bike, she gets ImpaledWithExtremePrejudice by a tree branch, complete with BloodFromTheMouth. Though Snake gives her medical attention, she doesn't just walk it off either; she can barely walk, and is still bleeding throughout the subsequent EscortMission.



* DirtyCoward: While he's fighting Snake and losing during their initial fight, he promptly orders Ocelot to shoot Snake. Ocelot refuses to do so:
-->'''Ocelot''': Fight like a man, Volgin!



* LovesTheSoundOfScreaming: During World War II, he and the Russian units under his command were ordered to execute thousands of Polish citizens and soldiers; Volgin personally beat many such victims to death with his fists and took off their blindfolds so that he could enjoy the look of terror in their eyes as they died. While he's subjecting Snake to ElectricTorture in the game proper, he's positively ''delighted'' when the pain leads Snake to [[BringMyBrownPants wet himself]]:
-->'''Volgin''': ''That's'' what I like to see!



* PowerLimiter: He wears a rubber suit underneath his longcoat which is able to make him keep his electric powers in check.

* {{Badass}}: Can be seen in ''[[VideoGame/MetalGearSolidPortableOps Portable Ops]]'', [[spoiler:even though recruiting him is non-canon]].



* DangerouslyGenreSavvy: [[spoiler:In a series about espionage, the guy who's obsessed with ''Film/JamesBond'' movies turns out to be the most successful villain in the entire storyline, avoiding practically [[BondVillainStupidity every common villain mistake]]. He's so good at his job that he manages to successfully TakeOverTheWorld without anyone even knowing he's done it, and he rules the world's governments unchallenged for around four decades. His Bond-like nemesis, Big Boss, couldn't punish him for his sins until he's a wheelchair-bound vegetable]].
** [[spoiler:''The Phantom Pain'' subverts this by revealing that he'd been trying to curb the chain of events he'd set in motion, but his subordinate Skull Face became a SpannerInTheWorks by incapacitating him and ruining any chance he had of reviving the alliance he had with Big Boss. This makes Zero more of a WrongGenreSavvy person who failed to curb the disastrous consequences of his misguided actions.]]



* {{Evil Brit}}: Given that [[spoiler:he founded the Patriots. Subverted when ''The Phantom Pain'' revealed he'd become TheAtoner, but still failed to stop the Patriots.]]

* TranquilFury: For being literally fuelled on UnstoppableRage, he has a disturbing tendency to slip into his stoic attitude mid-battle.
