The Molotov cocktail is named for Vyacheslav Molotov, the UsefulNotes/{{Soviet|Russia Ukraine and so on}} foreign minister who is historically infamous for signing a clandestine non-aggression pact with UsefulNotes/NaziGermany in 1939; when Finland (which had been ceded to the Soviets under the Molotov-Ribbentrop Pact) began to suffer Soviet bombing runs at the start of the Winter War, Molotov claimed they were not 'bombs', but food and supply drops, causing the Finnish soldiers to facetiously dub their hand-made petrol explosives 'Molotov cocktails'.

* In ''MetalGearSolid4'', Snake can acquire these (although they are referenced by their more technical name, "petrol bomb"), mostly during Act 1. While you can also obtain and use standard incendiary grenades, which have more power, Molotovs trade the power for increased range, although damaging explosives in general seem useless in the game in harder difficulties.
