* HeyItsThatVoice:
** It seems [[WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy Diane Simmons]] decided to become a reporter in Quahog after Big Boss killed her. Also, Volgin's Japanese voice actor, Creator/KenjiUtsumi, previously voiced Commander Red in ''Manga/DragonBall'' and Raoh in ''[[Manga/FistOfTheNorthStar Hokuto no Ken]]'', making it his third role as a military despot. EVA's voice actress, although her alias names her as Suzetta Miñet, sounds a bit too similar to the voice actress of [[Disney/TheLittleMermaid a certain redhead mermaid in a Disney film]], although some fans think she may have also been Creator/DebiMaeWest even after an in-house interview confirmed that she wasn't Miñet.
** Colonel Volgin, The Fear, and The Pain are voiced by ''G.I. Joe'' veterans Neil Ross, Creator/MichaelBell, and Creator/GreggBerger, respectively.
** Colonel Campbell's seiyuu provided Dr. Emmett Brown's voice in the Japanese dub of ''Franchise/BackToTheFuture'', [[ActorAllusion Time Paradox]] indeed.
** The Boss voiced [[WesternAnimation/ToyStory3 Bonnie's mom]] as well.
** Creator/JimWard ([[VideoGame/ResidentEvil4 Jack Krauser]]) may have had a brief stint as a Soviet researcher who developed the Metal Gear weapons line.
** In Japan, [[Creator/KikukoInoue The Boss]] is basically what happens when [[Manga/AhMyGoddess Belldandy]] [[TookALevelInBadass takes massive levels in badass]].
** [[WesternAnimation/AaahhRealMonsters The Gromble]] and [[VideoGame/FinalFantasyX Jecht]] voice The Pain here in English.
** Raikov in English is Franchise/TheFlash, and likewise Ocelot in English is [[WesternAnimation/GreenLanternTheAnimatedSeries Hal Jordan]].
** ''The Fury'' attacks someone he'll ''become'' about [[VideoGame/MetalGearSolid4GunsOfThePatriots fifty years down the line]]. Talk about a mind screw.
** Seems like after he reunited the two worlds, [[Creator/ScottMenville Lloyd]] [[VideoGame/TalesOfSymphonia Irving]] defected to the Soviet Union and became an Ocelot soldier, a scientist ''and'' a radio operator who calls off the [=MiGs=] at the end.

** Likewise, Volgin shares some traits with Raoh, including unusual powers and being military dictators. Both Volgin and Raoh were voiced by Creator/KenjiUtsumi. Also, this wasn't the only time Utsumi played [[Manga/DragonBall a tyrannical leader of an army with the word "Red" and "Army" in it.]]
** And furthermore, for the Japanese version of the game at least, the comical NonStandardGameOver messages from Colonel Campbell (when he berates you for creating a TimeParadox via killing Ocelot, EVA or Sokolov) is an allusion to Creator/TakeshiAono voicing Doc Emmett Brown in the Japanese dub of the ''Franchise/BackToTheFuture'' movies.

** The ''[[VideoGame/MetalGearSolid4GunsOfThePatriots Metal Gear Solid 4]]'' trailer also takes a potshot at Raiden, with the crowd booing heavily when he unmasks himself and his getting royally creamed by Snake during their fight for the main character chair.

* EnforcedMethodActing: During the scene where Snake and EVA where hiding in a mountain bolthole, when EVA leaned in to kiss Snake, he pulled back. This was because Snake's motion actor for the scene was unusued to love scenes and pulled back because he was nervous. Kojima, believing this was in character for Snake, decided to keep the scene in, and fondly remembers this as one of his favorite touches in the game.

* ScrewedByTheLawyers: Why the [[VideoGame/ApeEscape Snake vs. Monkey]] minigame isn't in the 3DS and HD versions. Sony Computer Entertainment created, and owns the rights to ''Ape Escape'', killing any chance the minigame has of being on other consoles by default.[[note]]Though that doesn't quite explain its absence in the UsefulNotes/PlayStation3 and [[UsefulNotes/PlayStationVita Vita]] versions, except [[TheyJustDidntCare not wanting to bother putting extra effort into one version]].[[/note]]

** Related to the above, the credits theme was originally planned to be Music/DavidBowie's "Space Oddity" and "Ashes to Ashes" when space development was originally one of the game's main themes.

** Kojima and Creator/AkioOhtsuka proposed the idea of having the game be voiced in ''Russian''. By the ''Japanese voice cast''. Ohtsuka was so enthusiastic about the idea, he went for Russian lessons. The rest of the cast shot them down. Interestingly, he decided to revisit this idea and use actual Russian in Metal Gear Solid V.

** Kojima looked at replacing Creator/DavidHayter as Snake with Creator/KurtRussell, who ultimately passed. Interestingly, Solid Snake was original based on Russel's character from Film/EscapeFromNewYork.

* It was originally intended that Colonel Volgin actually ''murdered'' his father which resulted in his inheriting the Philosophers' Legacy by consequence (thus making him a SelfMadeOrphan). However, the still that had him murdering his father was cut from the final version. Had it been kept, it should be noted that his reasons for murdering his dad most likely had nothing to do with the Legacy, as he himself admitted that he didn't even know about the Legacy's existence, or even that his father had it, until after his father's demise.

** As the player goes through the game, Snake's injuries were supposed to leave visible scars on him, but the {{PlayStation 2}}'s hardware capabilities were unable to handle this feature.

* DoingItForTheArt: As detailed below, Akio Ohtsuka was so ready to do all of Snake's dialogue in Russian that he took up language classes for it. However, his castmates found the idea crazy and it was dropped altogether.
