* {{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]].

[[spoiler:It's actually a RedHerring, as motorcycle gas is what gives EVA away]].

* DirtyCoward[=/=]KnowWhenToFoldEm: If an alert is triggered, Raikov immediately runs into the lavatories and hides there. Assuming that Raikov was aware of the fact that the intruder (Naked Snake) was planning on trying to impersonate him alive or dead to get to the West Wing of Groznyj Grad and rescue Sokolov, it's probable that his hiding was realization that he most likely wouldn't stand a chance against Snake should he take him on, which is supported by the fact that when he is cornered in the bathroom, he attacks Snake with various CQC attacks (Raiden's own two-punch-two-kick combo from ''[=MGS2=]'', in fact).

* [[LukeIMightBeYourFather Raiden, I Might Be Related To You]]: Even though WordOfGod was stated to be not related to Raiden at all (among other evidences), some fans still speculate that Raikov might have familial ties to Raiden, if not be his father due to his resemblance to Raiden.
