* AmbiguouslyBi: She definitely loved The Sorrow, who was a man. But Strangelove's tapes point out how close the two were. Strangelove was one of only three people who knew the Boss's story, the others being Big Boss and EVA.



* DeathSeeker: Strangelove comments that she thought the Boss was like this after hearing of Operation Snake Eater.
--> '''The Boss:''' Life's end. Isn't it glorious?



* ItsAllMyFault: She blames herself for the Cold War, believing that if she [[spoiler: had followed through with an assassination, even though it was actually a Soviet ruse, she might have been able to stop the Cold War, even if it meant sacrificing an innocent man.]]



* MamaBear: It was established that she and The Sorrow ended up fighting each other and she ended up killing him in 1962 at Tselinoyarsk, and the only "visual" aspect (a flashback from The Sorrow's memories) implies that The Boss killed him unwillingly. Peace Walker elaborates on the exact circumstances as to why she and The Sorrow fought: basically, the American and Russian Philosophers forced them to fight each other (in a manner that is eerily similar to Raiden and Solidus's fight in ''Metal Gear Solid 2'') with the threat that if both survived the fight, they would murder The Sorrow and The Boss's child, [[spoiler:Revolver Ocelot]].

** Even earlier, during an assassination attempt during World War II, The Boss protected her unborn child in a shoot out, causing her to take a grazing shot to the head.



** Also earlier. The CIA offered to take over mission control of the mission to exploit some Russian Philosophers who were dissatisfied with Moscow into sabotaging various Soviet projects (with the not to subtle reason of wanting to take the credit). The Boss let them do so. Afterwards, they cut the sleeper agent The Boss planted in there's pay by a large percentage, resulting in him [[MistreatmentInducedBetrayal defecting completely to the Soviet Union]], and then falsifying several documents. The Boss got suspicious and decided to go in alone after the CIA refused to back her up. In other words, she really should have continued being directly involved in the operation a bit longer rather than let the CIA take over.

* BiTheWay: ''Peace Walker'', heavily implies she and Strangelove were in a relationship together. Basically confirmed in ''Phantom Pain'', with Strangelove even having a special nickname for her.
