* 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.

* The cheesy and very heavy-handed [[{{Foreshadowing}} references to FOXDIE and FOXHOUND]] during the Snake Eater Briefing cutscene. Yes, we get it, MGS3 is a prequel to the entire series, Kojima, we get that, but you don't have to hit us over the head with blatant lines like Snake's "Does this mean FOX is going to DIE?" and Zero's reply of "No. This FOX is still one step ahead of the HOUNDS." The lines don't have that emphasis there ingame, but still. And yes, there are equivalent lines in the Japanese version as well.

** The very name Hot Coldman qualifies as {{Narm}} to English speakers. It might be a good pun and sound cool to Japanese gamers, but there's no one in America, let alone the CIA, who's first name is Hot.

*** Not to mention Otacon's hamminess. Bear in mind, this was a woman he'd recently met and slept with one time. If anything killed the scene, it was him sobbing, "Just when I was ready to love again!" Bonus because this has the effect of reminding the player of the narm in Otacon's ''other'' "girlfriends" deaths.

** Mei-Ling's assertion that "At that frequency, the waves will start to evaporate any living person" is hilarious to anyone who knows that microwaves are LOW frequency. They're between radio waves and light waves on the electromagnetic spectrum.



** 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. 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.

** Then there's Vamp, doing some kind of thing where he swivels his torso around and around even though it's doing nothing to keep the Geckos from hitting him.



* When Laughing Octopus makes her face-camo appear as Snake's face - while the camo is a perfect representation of his face, she's not only using her real (albeit androgynous) voice, but she hasn't done anything to conceal her body. So what we have instead of a perfect Snake disguise is [[FanDisservice Old Snake, but with massive boobs.]]

* The Twin Snakes is absolutely loaded with narm, especially the "airplane noises" as ChipCheezum calls them. Other interesting bits include the new cutscene duel between Grey Fox and Snake after the boss fight with Revolver Ocelot (which features, among other things, cartoonish tire squealing sounds when Snake is knocked backwards) and Snake's reaction to Kenneth Baker forgetting Meryl's Codec number turning from a rather sedate "Damn!" to sudden screaming, flailing, stumbling, and aiming a gun at his head in anger.

** Also in the Gamecube version, we have Ocelot's face as he notices that his arm's been chopped off. It looks more like [[DreamworksFace the kind of face]] you'd see in a Creator/{{Dreamworks}} movie.

** It's even harder to take seriously if you're on a playthrough were Raiden and Snake are wearing sunglasses. Especially the moment where the camera shows all three and everyone has glasses on, since Otacon's the only who needs glasses anyways.

* Raiden throwing away the dogtags that have the player entered information printed on them during the ending is supposed to be symbolic of him separating himself from the player and [[spoiler:make the player wonder if the person going through the S3 plan was Raiden or themselves]]. However, this is somewhat undercut if, like some players, you decide to abuse the HelloInsertNameHere potential by entering something like [[LetsPlay/ChipCheezum "Suck My Dick"]] or "Boner Patrol". Or, heck, something belonging to an in-game character. Adds a certain bit of confusion to Raiden's claim that he's never heard of the name written on the tags before.

[[FridgeBrilliance Although if you input Raiden's name, it symbolizes him leaving behind the identity the Patriots forced on him]].



** This one gets especially ridiculous in the conversation with [[spoiler:Olga in the torture room]] as Raiden's reactions are just the same as for Rose, ranging from a sappy "I love you" to a bitchy "You are a very selfish woman", all that adressed in a tense scene between two characters that are supposed to be tragic.

* The ludicrously whiny way Raiden shouts "400 seconds?!" when Stillman confirms the Strut A bomb's timer (the timer varies with difficulty, but most players play the game on Normal and get 400 seconds as a result). Combine that with how Stillman insists on measuring the timer in seconds instead of minutes.
* Looking through the original [[http://junkerhq.net/MGS2gameplan.pdf Grand Game Plan]] for the game reveals some pretty narmy things, which were possibly removed because it was realised how silly they would be. Fortune, for example, was originally supposed to play the saxophone, which probably would have come out of nowhere and been at inappropriate moments. She also was supposed to carry fortune cookies around with her, and open them at different points in the game to find out that they said.
* The codec that explains Vamp's backstory and the origin of his nickname. It starts off fairly serious, with Snake relaying that his family were caught in a terrorist bomb attack and how he only survived through drinking their blood...right up until Raiden exclaims "so that's why they call him Vamp..." It's at this point that Snake replies, in as deadpan a fashion as he could: "No. Vamp isn't for vampire, it's because [[DepravedBisexual he's bisexual]]." Not only is this a ridiculous and rather nonsensical reason for him to have that nickname (especially since "vamp" as a slang term tends to refer to seductive women, rather than men), but it's then followed by Snake and Raiden discussing the rumours surrounding Vamp's choice of lovers. It's played as seriously as it could possibly be played and it's hilarious.

* 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!"

* The Fear seems to have some sort of specialized Narm Tourette's involving saying the word "FFFEAR FEARF-F-FFFEEEEEEARR" to help add some derp to his otherwise creepy persona.

* During the scene at the end of Metal Gear Solid 3 when Ocelot is fighting Snake as EVA is trying to stabilize the [=WiG=] cargo plane, that Ocelot had just fired a bullet into the engine of, she says, "Not good!" I'm sorry but that that one line came off as soundly terribly silly, the tone of voice EVA delivers the line in sounds like she is forcing out a turd or something and the sheer wallbanger territory the line reaches when you realize how obvious it is that the situation is not good, Snake is fighting Ocelot in a fist fight without the aid of a gun to protect himself if things go south and the plane all three of you are in is about to crash... OF COURSE THINGS ARE NOT GOOD! The overall scene is an incredibly awesome fight between Snake and Ocelot and serves as great character development between the two and shines some light on later revelations about Big Boss and Ocelot in Metal Gear Solid 4, but EVA's line and the delivery of it makes it somewhat narmful.

* 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. Yet MGS4 states that Madnar [[MadeOfIron survived all of this]] since he's still around to help Raiden out ([[TheGhost though he doesn't appear]]) and his daughter is mentioned.

** 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 to an explosion. 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 for no reason.

Then Volgin incredulously replies back with "Volgin?!"...but pronouncing it "Vol-jin", proving he's a doofus who can't even pronounce his own name correctly.

* [=MG1=] introduces us to the [[SarcasmMode epicness]] that is Shoot Gunner[=/=]Shotmaker. The End could photosynthesize to regain strength, Psycho Mantis was an unparalleled psychic and Vamp is practically immortal, and Shoot Gunner...has a shotgun. The MSX games' bosses are so mundane its hilarious. Considering that ''these'' are the guys Big Boss and Venom Snake put their faith in...

* As mentioned above, Creator/ScottMenville voices a few [=NPC=]s, including the harmless scientists in the Granin lab and Groznyj Grad. Its more funny than anything holding a knife to one's throat demanding information and hearing [[WesternAnimation/TeenTitans Robin]][=/=][[VideoGame/TalesOfSymphonia Lloyd Irving]] whimpering like a kid.

** BilingualBonus if you know french: Cecile has quite a strong anglophone accent for a native french speaker. Also, for someone lost in the woods trying not to let her kidnappers catch her, the way she reacts to meeting a total strange...
** And so is Big Boss's answer "Stop playing hide and seek, tell me who you are."

* Speaking of GameOver scenes, sometimes you'll end up with Cecile begging Snake to get up which is tense...until Cecile desperately squeals "I'll even do a quetzal for you!" and just makes generic bird whistling noises...which are subtitled as "Kyoooooh, kyoooooh." Its more hilarious than anything, keeping in tradition really.

*** Worse than that: nanomachines, which the game consistently assigns near magically omnipotent properties, somehow could only "hold back" the cancer, rather than kill the cancerous cells and cure it entirely.

*** Worse than that: nanomachines, which the game consistently assigns near magically omnipotent properties, properties - in a later game they're able to ''reattach a recently-severed limb'' simply by placing it back on the stump for two seconds - somehow could only "hold back" the cancer, rather than kill the cancerous cells and cure it entirely.



## Snake's [[SingleIssueWonk continued insistence across the first two acts]] that every single bit of WorldBuilding exposition is in some way related to the Patriots, even as everyone he espouses this to starts treating him like an obsessed looney for it. The fact that he turns out to be right ''on every count'' does little to assuage this.



** [[spoiler:While most of the fight choreography was pretty solid, there were two moments that make people giggle with insane glee. The first is a birds-eye-view of Liquid whaling on Snake. [[OverlyLongGag Too much emphasis, maybe?]] The second is a bizarre cross body block from Snake that suggests he graduated from the WWE school of CQC (which, predictably, Ocelot counters by...catching him).]]

* Ocelot's English performance in this game can be ridiculous when yells "BROTHAAAAAAAAAAA!!!" Its a shame Creator/CamClarke couldn't return as Liquid but dear god did Patric Zimmerman go beyond the call of duty to give players what they wanted from him.

* 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, assault rifle in one hand as his injured arm dangles.

* Johnny during the Act 5 mission briefing. By this point its already been established throughout the franchise that this Johnny is narm incarnate and even manages to bring out the narm in those around him, but attempting to cup Mei-Ling's buttocks with the subtlety of a boar in heat?

* [[spoiler:Paz having a bomb in her vagina.]] Granted, it can be heart-rending to some if you know the context, but if you aren't shocked or horrified by it, you'll likely burst out laughing at the sheer ridiculousness of it (And its resemblance to [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Snuke that episode of]] ''WesternAnimation/SouthPark'') and how it was pushed so stoically despite the fact that [[spoiler:of all places to put a contingency bomb, Skull Face decided in his infinite wisdom to sneak a snuke up Paz's snizz.

** Christopher Randolph acted his heart out as Huey but it doesn't change the fact that Huey, when he's acting as his own defense attorney, sounds so much like a LargeHam that its hard to take him seriously. Especially when he's blaming the frigging DOG for the Diamond Dogs' many problems.
