* The death of The End is made much less dramatic when his dentures fly out of his mouth. That it happens ''mid-sentence'' is just icing on the silly cake.

* The white Cyborg Ninja/[[spoiler:Gray Fox]] is voiced by the black Greg Eagles, who, while he tries hard, badly conceals his African-American baritone with a bizarre high-pitched rasp that destroys the drama in most of his scenes. It's especially jarring since he does such a good job voicing [[spoiler:Gray Fox's codec alter ego, Deepthroat]]. ''The Twin Snakes'' fixed this by recasting the role with RobPaulsen, who does an ''awesome'' job.

** The boss fight against Volgin starts seriously and gets dumber as you progress. You shoot and CQC him. He survives, pilots the Shagohod and survives an explosion and almost falling into a ravine. When Volgin finally catches up with Snake and Eva, he is furious with the former but will attack EVA if she makes fun of how he is at bed. Exactly, a tank starts following a motorcycle. During this time, Snake takes advantage of how dumb Volgin is and shoots him... It doesn't kill him! Heck, Volgin looks angrier. Then right out of nowhere Mother Nature (and The Sorrow) attack Volgin with a lightning bolt just because Volgin just happened to get pissy with the concept of thunder for a while. Oh, but that's not the end of it: [[spoiler:'''he survives this!''' The PowerOfHate, combined with his link with Tretij Rebenok, lets him not only stay alive, but fucking '''''control fire'''', among a host of other abilities! It's only after realizing that the man he's been chasing is a body double of Big Boss that Volgin finally keels over.]] Jesus, [[MadeOfIron Made Of Dirty-little-bitch-inite]], much?

* As legendary a soldier as she is, The Boss can make some truly AWFUL puns. Here's this one when she preps a sleeping The End for a fight with Snake: "And when he does (wake up) it will be The End for the boy."
* Volgin. His lightning powers are no match for the fact that he is a fucking Franchise/JamesBond [[BondVillainStupidity villain.]]

** You can fool Volgin temporarily with the exact same Raikov mask. Mid-battle. Where he's likely to see Snake putting the mask on, right in front of him. Sure ItOnlyWorksOnce, but come ON, Yevgeny!

* Some of Ocelot's cred as a hyper-badass is undermined by [=MGS3=] when he calls for support.

* Some of Ocelot's cred as a hyper-badass is undermined by [=MGS3=] when he calls for support. The kicker is ''how'' he calls for it:



* The line [[spoiler:"You are above even the Boss. I hereby award you the title Big Boss."]] from the ending can comes across as quite narmy. Retroactively, "Big Boss" as a title becomes this since it literally sounds like LBJ came up with it on the fly.

* The simple fact that what does Big Boss in is an '''Aerosol Can/Lighter combo'''. Mind you, this is the guy who once lifted the entire leg of a mech by himself, was electro-tortured, had his eye shot to hell, was shot in the thigh, survived a god knows how high drop down a waterfall and a near 10 minutes underwater.

* "Boss, have you lost your mind?!" The line is spoken after the player kills one of their base soldiers or every other time that the player harms Miller during the first mission. The problem is that Ocelot's line delivery, while appropriately enraged-sounding, also sounds oddly throaty. Even more glaring is how, in its former usage, the line is contrasted by Ocelot's voice suddenly getting calmer. Luckily, it helps that you only hear this line if you actively choose to engage in VideoGameCrueltyPotential.

* To some, the "[[Music/MikeOldfield Nuclear]]" trailer for ''The Phantom Pain'' tries to be serious and melancholy but ends up being unintentionally funny because of the {{Wangst}}y music choice. While thematically appropriate, they might as well have played "[[Music/LinkinPark Crawling]]".
** The "[[Music/{{Garbage}} Not Your Kind of People]]" trailer, for similar reasons. A kind of power anthem for "different" people - while it does possess some level of thematic resonance, if taken at face value, the song basically equates Big Boss to your average self-absorbed emo teenager.

* To some, A few people found that the use of "[[Music/MikeOldfield Nuclear]]" in the [=E3=] 2014 trailer for ''The Phantom Pain'' tries Pain'', while trying to be serious and melancholy but ends up being unintentionally funny because of melancholy, was an unfitting music choice given the {{Wangst}}y music choice. lyrical delivery of the song's content matter. [[DontShootTheMessage While the dark atmosphere of the song itself is thematically appropriate, appropriate]], they might as well have played "[[Music/LinkinPark Crawling]]".
** The "[[Music/{{Garbage}} Not Your Kind of People]]" trailer, for similar reasons. A kind of power anthem for "different" people - while it does possess some level of thematic resonance, if taken at face value, the song lyrics become too easy to interpret as basically equates equating Big Boss to your average self-absorbed emo teenager.

* Speaking of Sam and weird delivery. When Armstrong pierces his chest in his DLC, he sounds like he's having TheGruntingOrgasm. And that facial expression doesn't help.
