* The ShowWithinAShow commercials range from [[NightmareFuel nightmarish]] (such as "7th Circle"'s holographic demon heads) to [[BlackComedy morbidly funny]] ("Bomb Shelter Buffet" and its Leningrad Beets), but "Drill Sergeant's Recruit Workout" is more insidious than it looks. It's not just any ordinary exercise program--"[[IfYouCallBeforeMidnightTonight Call in the next 10 minutes]] and get two free [[{{Nanomachines}} Nanopacks]]!" Who's to say the workout's nanopacks aren't a Patriot attempt to introduce the SOP system's nanomachines to ''civilians''?

* Liquid's personal army is named the [=FROGs=]. At first, it seems stupid that Liquid named his army after an animal that has a given history of being eaten by snakes, but it might as well be foreshadowing of [[spoiler: Ocelot's plan all along.]]
* David Hayter is mocked for his line "You were the lightning in that rain. You can can still shine through the darkness" he gives to Raiden. The truth is that it completely fits the situation as Raiden is Japanese for "lightning bolt." After the revelation that Raiden used to be Jack the Ripper, Raiden stated he found himself unsuitable to live a proper life as he was a killer. However, Snake states that back in ''Solid 2'' Raiden stood out in Big Shell as Raiden, not Jack the Ripper. Raiden appears to accept Snake's claim later as he says "I am lightning. The rain transformed." when he saves Snake from the [=FROGs.=]

* Everyone likes to complain about the whole "nanomachines being used to explain everything in Guns of the Patriots". But in an example of CompletelyMissingThePoint, the reliance of nanomachines is a big part of the game's story. PMC's and the Rat Patrol 01's reliance on nanomachines show the dark future ahead and how lost they are without them. People disregard their own SENSES ([=MGS4=]'s major theme) in favor of technology.

* Why the crap Drebin keep telling Old Snake stories of BB squad members? Drebin considers Snake a living, breathing war legend, and seemingly happy to be working with the man himself. So it's possible that he's geeking out and piling some of his war stories at Snake to some extent.

* There's also some fridge poetic justice in the USS Missouri, a ''WorldWarII battleship'' and a bunch of Marines and sailors, themselves without the benefit of SOP, taking on Outer Heaven [[spoiler:and ''winning'']] while Snake does his job. The ship and soldiers represent in a sense the world as it was before Zero, Big Boss and the Patriots got into the picture. [[spoiler:And once all of them are out of the picture, humanity would effectively be brought back figuratively to that point in history to move forward. Although as ''Revengeance'' reveals, that doesn't exactly stop business from going on as usual, albeit without the Patriots' influence.]]

* ID-tagged equipment is a convenient way for The Patriots to control precisely when and where conflicts can occur, effectively allowing them to maintain ForeverWar scenario.

Note the order in which the fight takes place: he's referred to as Liquid in the first phase, Liquid Ocelot in the second, and Ocelot in the third before he reverts back to Liquid Ocelot for the final one. He goes from keeping his facade as Liquid, to the split persona he had in ''Sons of Liberty'' and finally, his original identity as the fight goes on.]]



** Very oddly confirmed in ''VideoGame/MetalGearRisingRevengeance''. Gekkos and Metal Gears still continue to be made, and war continues like business as usual. [[spoiler: And the most Snake can do is have his soul empower a wooden, non-lethal sword for Raiden to utilize, as a bonus weapon that has no bearing on the story.]]
