** The same parallels also show up in The Phantom Pain; a small time recently formed private military lead by a famous hero, who gradually descends into a violent demon of battle, fighting against an American war crimes group [[spoiler:lead by a government official who, with the help of a metal gear, plans to create a world controlled by sheer destructive potential.]] Even the meta shows some parallel growth, both deviating from the series' trademark stealth-shooting and wacky jokes into a much more action oriented, mainstream genre with stealth components and serious, gritty plotlines regarding child soldiers and war profiteering.

* 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.]]
* 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

* Senator Armstrong's NoPartyGiven entry mentions that his tie is neither Democrat blue or Republican red, but rather yellow. Yellow isn't associated with any major American parties, but it ''is'' associated with [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anarcho-capitalism anarcho-capitalism]], which (among other things) would replace government-run military and law enforcement groups with PrivateMilitaryContractors and LawEnforcementInc As bankroller of Desperado and de-facto CEO of World Marshal, that's Armstrong's M.O. in a nutshell. Even when taking the more idealistic interpretation of his vision (which would be closer to individualist anarchism or libertarianism), Armstrong would still be at the top of the food chain. [[FridgeHorror How much would things really change for the common man?]]



* Armstrong Being UnskilledButStrong.... even being no match for Raiden's actual SKILL, he was EASILY capable of wiping the floor with him through sheer brute strength without the one-of-a-kind Murasama blade. What if Armstrong had undergone Hand-to-hand combat training.... or the Tech used for his augmentations leaked?

* 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.

** 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.
