* 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.

* The flashbacks we experience [[spoiler: during the final battle with Liquid Ocelot? They're Ocelots own memories between his Liquid person and his true self gradually returning to him.]]

* The flashbacks we experience [[spoiler: during the final battle with Liquid Ocelot? They're Ocelots Ocelot's own memories between his Liquid person persona and his true self gradually returning to him.him. 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.]]

* David Hayter is mocked for his line "You were the lightning in the 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.=]

* 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.]]

** Made somewhat better by the fact that the wolf that picked her up was rumored to be the spirit of Sniper Wolf. She's likely carrying her fellow Wolf to a peaceful resting site.

* The whole thing behind [[spoiler: Naomi's death. Whether it was just powerful nanomachines by themselves, or they were the same or a variant of Vamp's nanomachines, they held back and suppressed the lethal terminal cancer to the point that throughout the entire game up to that point, she'd basically been like any other healthy individual. Then she disables the nanomachines and [[RedemptionEqualsDeath dies]] [[SacrificialLamb almost]] [[TheAtoner immediately]] from the cancer, albeit not without a dramatic death speech even as everyone's leaving minutes later. But Vamp's nanomachines don't make all of his pain go away, and didn't even remotely heal his scarring from years previous at the Big Shell. Even if Naomi's nanomachines were improved somehow, cancer causes one's organs to fail and extraordinary amounts of pain - neither of which she exhibits traits of at all over the course of the game. Even with the HandWave of nanomachines being able to seemingly do anything by this point in the series, there's literally nothing the "magic cancer" makes sense for when having Naomi catch the second strain of FOXDIE from Snake could've solved just about every single plot hole involved.]]

**** Even then, wouldn't the stealth camo short out after the corridor? It's shown that the Mk. III was barely able to sustain being in that corridor as long as Snake was, and the corridor shorted out his muscle suit and (presumably) his OctoCamo. Even then, the drones would figure out there was only one port that could be used there. Snake HAD to be there.
