* When fighting Sam in the [[HopelessBossFight unwinnable fight]] on the train, he [[EyeScream slices out Raidens eye]] with an upwards vertical slash. What's interesting is that if you look at Sam's face, he has a scar in the exact same place. It seems like Sam has had this attack used on him in the past, and may even have [[MegaManning learned it from having it used on him.]]

*** Keep in mind that at no point before the third phase of the fight with Raiden was Armstrong ever fighting seriously, before then he was just playing around, both with Raiden and Sam. Even if Armstrong did have any hand to hand skills its unlikely he would use them.

* Related to the above, the boss fights show an evolution in levels of the cultish "strong prey upon the weak" ideology among World Marshall's leaders. Metal Gear RAY is a weapon in service of their belief. Khamsin is a blind believer in World Marshall's rhetoric that they fight for freedom, as he's not considered worthy enough to know the true purpose of the company. Bladewolf is enslaved by their tenets, and doesn't know why it's that way. Mistral is a fresh convert to the cause who's rejoicing in the purpose she now has. Monsoon is someone who understands and actively preaches the nihilistic doctrine, along with trying to bring new believers into the fold. Sundowner leads the congregation and believes in World Marshall's ideas of might makes right, but works to bring about their heaven for selfish reasons. Sam was forcefully converted and willingly gave up his individual freedom, but is trying to find someone [[SuicideByCop strong enough to kill him]]. Armstrong is the one who created their ideology, embodies it through body and mind, and is striving towards his idea of paradise on Earth because he believes it's the only way to save his country.

** Armstrong believes in the strong controlling the weak. He thinks he's the strongest, and that he doesn't need to use finesse. He already won once by just throwing his weight at Sam. And if he could beat Raiden with his strength, he would absolutely prove his philosophy is the only true one. He's [[MeaningfulName named]] Arm''strong'', for crying out loud.

** In fact we are gratified with an immediate confirmation of how hollow Raiden's speech is. Immediately after he mentions the samurai, we see Jetstream Sam who's a samurai Expy. The first bad guy we see in the game is a samurai!

*** In short, Raiden treats Wolf more like a ''partner'', not an AI or pet.

** Or, if you're looking at things another way, Sam is the odd one out, as Sundowner's twin blades could be seen as a parallel to Leo's twin katana. Considering that Sam's generally unconcerned about Desperado's goals and his rather sarcastic quips, in a sense, Sam could be seen as a darker Mikey analogue. Plus, consider how Sundowner is the leader, Monsoon's the BloodKnight and Mistral's arguably the most analytical (she did assist Dolzaev in his takeover.)

** Furthermore, look at the flipside. Throuhgout the game, Raiden has been literally ripping apart his enemies to pieces, and his nickname is "Jack the ''Ripper''". Raiden is the counterpart to ''Shredder''.

* During the initial phases of the fight, Raiden's punches do next to no damage to Armstrong. However, the punches delivered during the last phase's QTE are considerably more effective. Why? It's all about positioning. Rather than just punching into Armstrong's general midsection, Raiden goes for liver blows (essentially targeting a specific vital) and a cross counter (with the force of his punch amplified by Armstrong charging into it).
