* Fridge coincidence(?): In the Metal Gear '''S'''olid series, the main character's name was '''S'''nake. However, since this game is called Metal Gear '''R'''ising, the main character's name is '''R'''aiden. Futhermore, in Japanese "Rising" is a homophone to "Raijin", a god of [[ShockAndAwe lightning and thunder]] in Japanese mythology (hell, the name itself literally means "lightning god") who is also known by another name that is also another word for "lightning": ''Raiden''. Bonus points for Raiden the character having an [[ShockAndAwe electric/lightning]] motif that goes back to [=MGS4=]. "I am lightning, the rain transformed," indeed.

* During the fight with the Metal Gear Excelsus, [[spoiler:Senator Armstrong's]] theme is "Collective Consciousness", a song imploring the citizens of the United States to give up and "let your country control your soul". When you fight him ''on the ground'', it changes to "It Has To Be This Way", a bitter acknowledgement of the NotSoDifferent aspects between him and Raiden. During said fight, he reveals his anarchic leanings and that he wants to free America from its weakness and allow true freedom, meaning his true theme was always "It Has To Be This Way"-"Collective Consciousness" was him ''mocking'' the political climate of America, made even more so when you listen to his rant after the Exelcus boss fight.

* When Blade Wolf is escaping from Desparado and Mistral, it uses his boss theme instead of the regular battle theme. Now, remember that his theme is "I'm My Own Master Now". It fits that this song is used when Blade Wolf thinks he's escaping, and wanting his own freedom

** Not to mention that the player will have more than likely cut through a portion of Armstrong's health, weakening his defenses just a bit and making the punches more effective.

** It seems to this troper that Armstrong had Raiden figured out wrong from the start: He points out that Raiden started out from nothing and rose to his current situation all on his own. Except... he didn't. Raiden was groomed and trained from early on by Solidus and Patriots and brought over to America and placed in the military there. The Patriots are even responsible for him being HappilyMarried. Raiden was helped into his current position by those who had much more power than him. Raiden protecting the powerless is similar to what was done to him, just much less brutal and without ulterior motives.

* 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.
