*** The above troper is correct; furthermore, it's not even a tactic unique to ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolid2SonsOfLiberty'''s storytelling; see also ''BioShock'', ''Spec Ops: The Line'', ''Shadow of the Colossus'', ''BioShock Infinite''...

** Honestly, it doesn't seem like ''anybody'' recognises Solidus as the former President. Almost no character comments on it; all everyone cares about is whether or not he is Solid Snake- the hostage Richard Ames calls him "Snake" and neither Solid nor Otacon point out that this guy looks REALLY familiar. It isn't until we meet President Johnson that we learn the guy we've been fighting is his predecessor and even then, nobody seems surprised that they didn't recognise him all this time. To put this in perspective, the plot of the game is basically that Bill Clinton has become a terrorist, seized control of a oil cleaning facility and taken George W. Bush and much of his staff hostage with the help of Russian mercenaries and a renegade US Special Forces team... and everyone just rolls with it. It's...more than a bit weird.

** It's still really strange behavior for him to swim back to that room, place some mines and then not actually engage Raiden in battle. Especially when the next time we see him he's leaping out of the ocean implying he was washed out there from the boss room.

** The Digital Graphic Novel has Solidus saying something along the lines of lamenting his failed legacy as he falls down; whether this was something that was always intended for Solidus to say for that scene back in 2001, or just a line added retroactively for the sake of the novel, well...[[ShrugTake i'unno.]]

** The Colonel actually rules out melee combat as an option if you call him after trying and failing to shoot her. Presumably, it's just too dangerous to try running at her when she's firing a railgun at you.

** So, the question Ocelot ''thinks'' the Patriots want answered is: could ''anyone'' have survived Shadow Moses? Did we need to send a legendary soldier, or did the nature of the situation itself memetically create a perfect soldier? The real question the Patriots are asking is much more complicated and postmodern, though.

*** Even if it's in Ocelot's voice, who else could Snake have possibly thought it was? Do other characters refer to Snake as "Brrrrrrrother!!!"?

*** What about his nanomachines allowed him to run vertically up walls, then? Or spin so fast he deflects bullets? I think it's pretty clear that as of GOP he's a vampire who also has nanomachines.

*** When you cross back over the bridge from the Shell 2 core with Emma, someone's helpfully added replacement panels which allow her to cross. Maybe someone did the same to the Shell 1 core.
