** The reason Quiet's so scantily clad? [[spoiler:The parasites that she was given after being treated for the horrible burns she received early in the game force her to breathe through her skin via photosynthesis. Wearing any more clothing than a small bikini top and tights could lead to her skin suffocating.]] Not only is it a near Anime/KillLaKill-level silly excuse, but it's quite inconsistent when one considers that [[spoiler:The End, who photo-synthesized sunlight to rejuvenate himself and seemed to have similar parasites,]] got on just fine in a full ghillie suit. Also, it might make you try to imagine [[spoiler: The End]] in a bikini. [[BrainBleach Don't.]]

* "I LOVE to reload during a battle! [[FreudWasRight There's nothing like the feeling of slamming a long, silver bullet into a well-greased chamber]]." Not to mention Kenneth Baker moaning in the background...

** Speaking of which, why is Vamp ''always'' licking his knives even when there's no blood on them? When Vamp first captures Raiden, he stabs him in the chest and licks the "white blood" off the blade. [[FreudWasRight ...Maybe we're thinking about this too hard]]. Snake, who's currently aiming a sniper rifle to try and shoot one of Raiden's restraints off of him, has to [[ReactionShot take a moment]] to pull away from the scope and raise an eyebrow at that one.

* One improvement Twin Snakes made was giving more voiceovers to the Genome Soldiers, which is good. Of course it gets a bit irksome for some when one of the VAs for the Genome soldiers is Creator/ScottMenville, which makes it pretty jarring when you end up getting seen and having backup sicced on you by [[VideoGame/TalesOfSymphonia Lloyd Irving,]] [[WesternAnimation/CaptainPlanetAndThePlaneteers Ma-Ti]] or [[WesternAnimation/TeenTitans Robin]]. The same thing happens in [=MGS3=] here Menville voices both an Ocelot soldier, a random scientist NPC and a Soviet radio officer in the ending.

** One of Emma's deaths in the same video(around the 8 minute mark) has Otacon saying Emma's name in an annoyed, rather than sad, tone.

* One of the many OhCrap phrases the Africa-based soldiers can shout [[{{Mondegreen}} sounds a lot like they're shouting "FLIPPING OCELOT!!]]" Okay, what did he do THIS time?

* The whole game becomes one long Narm if you're more used to the ''Solid'' games. If you are, you will be familiar with Snake as a {{badass}} ShellShockedVeteran-slash-CoolOldGuy and accustomed to the heavy melodrama. It's jarring to pick up a ''VideoGame/MetalGear'' and see exactly ''what'' traumatized Snake into HeroicBSOD in ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolid''.

* The game has an example similar to the ''Manga/CardcaptorSakura'' one noted in Narm.{{Anime}}. It would be much easier to take The Boss seriously if she wasn't voiced by [[WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy Diane Simmons]]/ [[WesternAnimation/SpongebobSquarepants Pearl.]] It didn't make her any less {{badass}}, but you may spend the Virtuous Mission half-expecting her to reply to the Major with a cheerful "That's ''right'', Tom!"

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

Added DiffLines:

* Courtney's GagBoobs. Seriously, they're half the size of beach balls and she wears her shirt open so that you're always looking at her cleavage whether you want to or not. You'll be on the codec with her discussing some serious humanitarian problem and trying to focus on what she has to say, and the inappropriate {{fanservice}} just pulls you out of the moment.

to:

* The boss battle against Dr. Pettrovich in ''VideoGame/MetalGear2''. Controls make it [[ViolationOfCommonSense impossible for Snake to actually do anything about the frail old man who is choking him]], meaning the only way to win is to shoot Pettro repeatedly in the back with remote control missiles, or make Snake step on land mines to injure them both.

** The fact that they are called [=FROGs=] is narmy itself. Ocelot doesn't seem to have a lot of faith in his private army if he's going to name them after an animal that are known to get eaten by snakes.

* The cutscene after the epic Metal Gear fight near the end of Act 4: An injured Snake, having fucked his arm up mid fight watches as Liquid Ocelot joyfully runs out of his reach whilst turning around and giggling and pointing like a school playground bully. Its even more worth it for the too-fast jerky, almost comical way Snake limps at him, clutching his fucked up arm.
