* DirtyOldMan: Was depicted as such in the ''Subsistence'' joke video [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0gMqRAefBIo "He's Still Got It,"]] where he apparently has some sort of fascination for EVA/Tatyana for her "reviving" him.

Throughout the clip, he stalks EVA as the plot progresses, and repeatedly tranquilizes Ocelot out when he goes to hurt her, culminating with him expressing his "disappointment" when he stows away on Snake and EVA's night in Alaska. EVA ends up running him over the following morning when he attempts to snipe her.



* AGoodWayToDie: He goes out peacefully and with no regrets when Snake takes him out,

* NonLethalKO: Unlike other bosses, he won't kill you. Instead, losing to him entails being taken back to your prison cell.

* SleepyHead: Due to his age, he spends a lot of his time sleeping. He also has the potential to frequently doze off during the actual boss fight, making it easier to sneak up on him.

If the player holds up the Directional Mic to find him, hearing his snores is one of the audible cues to his location.

* IGaveMyWord: [[spoiler:According to the tape she left behind for Snake to find, she had standing orders to kill everyone who knew about her mission, but she chose to spare him because she had promised him not to kill him.]]

* IGaveMyWord: [[spoiler:According to the tape she left behind for Snake to find, she had standing orders to kill everyone who knew about her mission, but she chose to spare him because she had promised him not to kill him. But at the same time, it is rather heavily implied that her own feelings for him also played a part in the decision.]]

Added DiffLines:

* AchillesHeel: The knife. It's astonishingly effective against him, with the obvious caveat being that you need to sneak up to him to use it, and that's if he manages to not detect you. Granted, it makes sense given that you're slicing open his suit, but [[FridgeLogic why that courtesy isn't extended to your guns or explosives, which should at least blow up his fuel tanks]] is beyond any of us.


Added DiffLines:

* BossArenaIdiocy: Not as extreme as other examples, but the tunnels where he's fought have water pipes which can be shot to release water that'll douse his flames, and explosive barrels which can be shot near him to deal tons of damage.

* 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.

[[folder: In General]]
The support team assigned to Naked Snake during both the Virtuous Mission and Operation Snake Eater, who form the majority of the supporting cast for the game. [[spoiler: Major Zero, Sigint, and Para-Medic would later go on to found the Patriots and begin their campaign of information control before eventually being superseded by the A.I.s they created to contain all the information.]]
----
* BunnyEarsLawyer: Let's be honest here, they're ''all'' pretty weird people, even by the standards that this series has set. Doesn't stop them from being some of the most frighteningly competent people in the series [[spoiler:if creating the Patriots is anything to go by.]]
* FromNobodyToNightmare: Started out as you quirky support squad in [=MGS3=] that would provide helpful hints and shoot the shit with Snake about movies over the Codec, [[spoiler: and would then go on to found the Patriots, with all of the future nastiness that that entailed for the series going forward.]]

* VasquezAlwaysDies: She's not exactly butch, but is considerably more experienced and less fanservicey than EVA, ''Metal Gear Solid 3''[='=]s other ActionGirl. [[spoiler:Guess which one survives the game. It's EVA.]]

However, this is a case of TropesAreNotBad since her death has next to nothing to do with her lack of femininity and forms one of the game. It's EVA.]]most heart-rending moments of the game, and perhaps the franchise as a whole.

%%* SpiritAdvisor* SpiritAdvisor: Going into first person view in the cutscenes before the boss fight with Volgin shows him hovering around with a sign displaying the time left until the [=C3=] explosives detonate.



%%* TearsOfBlood

to:

%%* TearsOfBlood* TearsOfBlood: We see one of his eyes bleed just before the lens of his glasses cracks, possibly mirroring [[MoeGreenSpecial his death]].



%%* LargeHam

%%* LargeHam* LargeHam: Has a very dramatic manner of speaking, almost as if he were in a Shakespearean drama.

* BadassNormal: During UsefulNotes/WorldWarII, he was in the SAS, so he definitely qualifies.

* BadassNormal: During UsefulNotes/WorldWarII, he was in the SAS, so he definitely qualifies. He can demonstrate this in ''Portable Ops'' if Snake recruits him into FOXHOUND.


Added DiffLines:

* TheComicallySerious: Some of his radio conversations have him geek out about [[Film/JamesBond Bond movies]] all while maintaining his StiffUpperLip.
