** Dolph ends up being held hostage onboard a stage. He is voiced by Creator/KevinMichaelRichardson in the English version, who also voiced Prince John in the Creator/{{Disney}} version of ''Disney/RobinHood'', where that character had something similar happen to him after he ordered for Robin's execution.[[note]]Richardson never voiced John in the film itself. He does, however, voice him in ''WesternAnimation/HouseOfMouse''.[[/note]]

*** May have been partially referenced in the IDW comic: [[spoiler:Solidus knocks out Raiden in the middle of the fight and Snake takes over, ultimately being the one to defeat his brother while Raiden has the infamous talk with JFK!Campbell that, in the game, was right before the FinalBattle.]]

* ExecutiveMeddling: Creator/{{Konami}} execs forced Raiden's name in Japanese to be written using kanji (雷電), instead of katakana (ライデン) like other characters, because ライデン looked a bit too much like a transliteration of "Laden", as in OsamaBinLaden.

*** The trope namer for IJustShotMarvinInTheFace is now resistant to such injuries. Vamp is voiced by [[Creator/PhilLaMarr Phil LaMarr]].
*** Colonel Gurlukovich first appears hijacking a freighter. Sounds like something [[VideoGame/MonkeyIsland a pirate (optionally undead) would do]].

* [[ActorAllusion Actress Allusion]]: Solid Snake and Johnny Sasaki are reminded of Meryl Silverburgh when they see Olga Gurlukovich. There's a good reason for that. In the Japanese version, Meryl and Olga were both voiced by Kyoko Terase.

* HeyItsThatGuy:
** Kelly Brook, Carmen Electra and Louise Rednapp appear in the pin-ups in the initial release of the game. When it was re-released, Konami didn't re-license the images from ''FHM''.
** To a lesser extent, most of the game's music was composed by Harry Gregson-Williams.[[note]]He composed music for ''Film/{{Armageddon}}'' and ''Film/TheRock''.[[/note]] Kojima was inspired to have him compose the soundtrack after he and sound director Kazuki Muraoka saw ''Film/TheReplacementKillers'' in a cinema (Gregson-Williams had composed the music for that film as well) and found they enjoyed his compositions.
* HeyItsThatVoice:
** Creator/QuintonFlynn, who also lends his talents to [[WesternAnimation/JonnyQuestTheRealAdventures Jonny Quest]], [[Franchise/KingdomHearts Axel]], and [[VideoGame/NoMoreHeroes Henry]], among others, voices Raiden.
** Hey, Vamp was voiced by [[Film/PulpFiction Marvin]].
** Colonel Gurlokovich wants you to know that [[Franchise/{{Terminator}} killer machines from the future]] are just a figment of your imagination.
** Marine Commandant Scott Dolph is voiced by Kevin Michael Richardson, given that he and [[Creator/PhilLaMarr Vamp]] are stated to be lovers, it could potentially turn their respective characters' relationship on ''WesternAnimation/StaticShock'' quite [[ParentalIncest unsettling]].
** Solidus is actually [[VideoGame/KnightsOfTheOldRepublic Canderous]].
** Likewise, [[Creator/JenniferHale Naomi]] of the [[VideoGame/MetalGearSolid previous game]] returns as Emma, and would later share a game with Solidus's voice actor as Bastila Shan.
** [[Creator/VanessaMarshall Olga Gurlokvich]] is [[WesternAnimation/StarWarsRebels Hera Syndulla]].
** Olga in the Japanese version is [[VideoGame/MetalGearSolid Meryl]] [[VisualNovel/{{Policenauts}} Silverburgh]], something that's even lampshaded in the game itself.
** Rosemary's [[Creator/KikukoInoue Japanese voice actress]] also does The Boss and Sunny.
