* 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.

* GreaterScopeVillain: Sigint helped Zero mastermind the Peace Walker Incident, and both created and uploaded the Patriots' AI. In addition, [[spoiler:’’The Phantom Pain’’ reveals that he became the leader of Cipher following Zero’s incapacitation, so the latter’s actions during the ’90s as recalled by EVA in ’’Guns of the Patriots’’ can now presumably be attributed to Sigint instead, although how many of them he is personally responsible for is debatable since the AI would gradually develop its own will and run itself]].
