* 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.

Added DiffLines:

*** Colonel Gurlukovich first appears hijacking a freighter. Sounds like something [[VideoGame/MonkeyIsland a pirate (optionally undead) would do]].

** Originally there was going to be an unlockable item called the Mantis Mask, which would have allowed Raiden to read the thoughts of [=NPCs=]. This sounds suspiciously like it was retooled into the directional microphone.

** Raiden was also supposed to unlock a “Mantis Mode” where he can equip Psycho Mantis' gas mask and read the thoughts of [=NPCs=]. This sounds suspiciously like it was retooled into the directional microphone.

** One of the planned EasterEggs for finishing the game was Psycho Mantis's gas mask, which would allow you to read other characters thoughts for a RewatchBonus. However, in part because of the sheer amount of voice lines required, it was cut.

** Vamp was originally going to be a woman. Due to the introduction of Fortune, however, Vamp's gender was changed in development. Also, he was originally supposed to be, similar to a real life vampire, afraid of the crucifix, although it was mostly due to the trauma he experienced when the church he was attending in Romania was bombed with him and his family in it, where he actually was impaled by one.
