* WhatCouldHaveBeen: When they first started considering a ''Metal Gear'' movie, they used an image of Creator/MichaelBiehn as the model for Solid Snake on the game's box art - anticipating casting him as Snake.

** It arguably works out very well in the English VA's case. RobinAtkinDownes sounds a bit, but not completely, similar to CamClark when voicing Miller. [[spoiler: This is perfect for portraying a voice that is both distinct from Liquid's but also plausible for Liquid to fake convincingly.]]

* FranchiseZombie: Literally. After Hideo Kojima left Konami, the next game in the franchise, not including him, is ''Metal Gear Survive'', a zombie game after he considered the franchise done.

to:

* FranchiseZombie: Literally.Quite literally. After Hideo Kojima left Konami, the next game in the franchise, not including him, is ''Metal Gear Survive'', a zombie game after he considered the franchise done.



*** In fact, it's pretty much becoming a running gag that every time Kojima tries to let someone else do his job, they fuck it up so badly that he has to step in again.
* RecursiveAdaptation: Played with the series as a whole. The series started out as a PC game (yes, [=MSX2=]), and in some sequels, ported to video gaming consoles, and then some of them even ported back to PC.

again. [[note]]With the notable exception of ''Rising''[[/note]]

** Averted somewhat with ''VideoGame/SnakesRevenge'' as he has had mixed feelings about the game.

* HeyItsThatGuy: Creator/DavidHayter, the voice of Solid and Naked Snake, wrote (among other things) the scripts for the first two ''X-Men'' movies and the ''Watchmen'' movie.
** Hey It's That Manga/{{Guyver}}. Hayter is credited as Sean Barker (his character in ''Guyver: Dark Hero'') in the early trial versions of the original ''Metal Gear Solid''. He was actually using that name before Dark Hero, meaning that either it's a huge coincidence, or the character was named after him.
* HeyItsThatVoice: Considering the size of the cast, it's not surprising.
** [[Creator/JenniferHale Naomi Hunter is Emma Emmerich, and both]] are [[VideoGame/KnightsOfTheOldRepublic Bastila]], [[Franchise/MassEffect Shepard]], [[WesternAnimation/StarWarsTheCloneWars Aayla Secura]], [[VideoGame/{{Metroid}} Samus Aran]], and can also be found... well pretty much everywhere.
** [[Creator/CamClarke Liquid Snake was]] [[WesternAnimation/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles1987 Leonardo]]. The turtle, not the painter. He was also [[VideoGame/TalesOfSymphonia Kratos]] (the angel, not the [[VideoGame/GodOfWar angry, half-naked Greek guy]]).
** [[Creator/PaulEiding Colonel Campbell]] is [[WesternAnimation/{{Ben10}} Grandpa Max]], [[Franchise/{{Transformers}} Perceptor]] and [[VideoGame/{{Fallout3}} pretty much every old man in the Capital Wasteland]], not to mention [[VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII Hojo]]. He is also [[VideoGame/{{Starcraft}} Judicator Aldaris]] and he would like to remind you that [[MostAnnoyingSound you must]] {{construct additional pylons}}.
** [[Creator/KimMaiGuest Mei Ling]] is [[VideoGame/SyphonFilter Lian Xing]], [[VideoGame/DeadRising Isabella Keyes]] and [[Franchise/DotHack Subaru]].
** Revolver Ocelot (Patric Zimmerman), I am not kidding here, also was [[WesternAnimation/TheJetsons Elroy Jetson]].
** Solidus Snake (John Cygan) was [[VideoGame/KnightsOfTheOldRepublic Canderous]] and [[VideoGame/MarvelUltimateAlliance Iron Man]]
** Sniper Wolf (Tasia Valensia) is [[VideoGame/BatmanArkhamAsylum Poison Ivy]] and [[VideoGame/MarvelUltimateAlliance Spider-Woman]].
** [[Creator/PhilLaMarr Vamp]] was [[WesternAnimation/JusticeLeague Green Lantern]], [[WesternAnimation/SamuraiJack Samurai Jack]], and I kid you not: WesternAnimation/StaticShock.
*** He was also [[Film/PulpFiction Marvin.]] Given Kojima's love of and influence from films, [[IJustShotMarvinInTheFace it makes you wonder if it's a coincidence how many times he gets shot in the face.]]
** [[Creator/DavidHayter Solid Snake]] was also ComicBook/CaptainAmerica on the 1990s ''WesternAnimation/SpiderManTheAnimatedSeries''.
*** And Naomi was the Black Cat from the same show.
** [[Creator/QuintonFlynn Raiden is]] [[VideoGame/KingdomHearts Axel]], [[Manga/{{Naruto}} Iruka]] and [[VideoGame/MarvelUltimateAlliance Spider-Man]] and now [[Franchise/SonicTheHedgehog Silver.]]
** The Fear's voice wasn't the first time his voice actor (Michael Bell) voiced someone from a military unit called [[Franchise/GIJoe Cobra]]. Neither were Volgin or The Pain.
** In the original, the DARPA Chief (Greg Eagles) was Gray Fox (and Stillman), and both were also the [[WesternAnimation/TheGrimAdventuresOfBillyAndMandy Grim Reaper]], Luke Cage and [[Franchise/CrashBandicoot Aku Aku]]. In ''The Twin Snakes'', the Chief retained his voice actor, but Gray Fox was recast. He was then voiced by [[Creator/RobPaulsen the same guy]] who did WesternAnimation/{{Bubsy}} and [[WesternAnimation/PinkyAndTheBrain Pinky]].
*** Rob Paulsen also voiced [[WesternAnimation/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles1987 Raphael]], and Gray Fox is killed by Leonardo. Eerie coincidence!
** ''Peace Walker'' has [[WesternAnimation/ThePowerpuffGirls Bubbles]], [[WesternAnimation/DrawnTogether Princess Clara]], [[WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic Twilight Sparkle]], and [[WesternAnimation/TeenTitans Raven]] voicing Paz. And when turned on [[Creator/NanaMizuki Japanese voice]], she's [[Franchise/LyricalNanoha Fate Testarossa]]. Which makes it more [[PlayingAgainstType surprising]] when you realize that [[spoiler:she's the BigBad.]]
** President James Johnson, the Fear and The Fury are [[VideoGame/LegacyOfKain Vorador, Raziel and Moebius]], respectively.
** Let's not forget singing voices, too. The lady who sang "Snake Eater" - and "[[AwardBaitSong I Am the Wind]]" from ''VideoGame/CastlevaniaSymphonyOfTheNight''? Yep, same person - Cynthia Harrell.
** Looks like The Boss (Lori Alan) and Vamp got jobs at [[WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy Quahog Channel 5 News.]] Vamp would like to let you know that it's gon' rain.
** Fatman once [[Music/JesusChristSuperstar dreamed he met a Galilean]]. In fact, [[HiddenDepths he originated the role]].

** ''Manga/FistOfTheNorthStar'': This is maybe one of the series most of the voice cast already worked before: the late Creator/KojiTotani (Revolver Ocelot) voiced Jagi, who's also has a serious case of ChronicBackstabbingDisorder and also use guns. Creator/KenjiUtsumi (Volgin) voiced Raoh and his brother Kaioh, Creator/KanetoShiozawa (Gray Fox) voiced Rei, Creator/NorioWakamoto (Gene) voiced Shuren, Creator/ToshioFurukawa (young Roy Campbell) voiced Shin, Creator/TakeshiAono (older Roy Campbell) voiced Rihaku, Creator/HideyukiTanaka (Otacon and his father Huey) voiced Falco, Creator/HoukoKuwashima (Mei Ling) voiced Yuria in the ''Hokuto Musou'' game, Creator/DaisukeGori (Lt. Cunningham and Scott Dolph) voiced Uighur and many other mooks, ShozoIizuka (Peter Stillman) voiced Mr. Heart, Creator/TakayaHashi (Skull Face) voiced Toki and the most hilarious one: Creator/BanjoGinga (Liquid Snake) voiced Souther in the TV series and Creator/AkioOhtsuka (Solid Snake) also voiced Souther in the newest movies.
