** Otacon's the most obvious, but this actually applies to most of the cast. Ocelot is a SpaghettiWestern {{Otaku}} who was [[ComicBookFantasyCasting modelled after]] Creator/LeeVanCleef, can do ridiculous gunplay tricks with his revolver and pull off complicated ManWithNoName-style backstabbing BatmanGambit, and wears spurs all the time. Major Zero is a Film/JamesBond fanboy who is also a British spy going by an intitial codename ("O") and ends up masterminding a UsefulNotes/ColdWar assassination gambit to kill another superspy. Snake makes various references to movies throughout the games, even giving his name as Iroquois ([[MeaningfulName meaning "rattlesnake"]]) [[Film/EscapeFromNewYork Pliskin]] at one point, and he's based heavily on Eighties ActionHero characters. The [[CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming cutest example]] is probably Little John, a little boy who loves ninja manga and sci-fi about robots, and discovers at the end of ''MetalGearSolid4'' that his dad is a [[NinjaPirateZombieRobot robot ninja]]. Score.
