** The Japanese version of the game had to edit its torture scene to utilizing "Laughing Rods" instead of shock rods because of the censors demanding they do so to maintain their "C" rating (ages 15 and up).

** The Japanese version of the game had to edit its torture scene to utilizing "Laughing Rods" instead of shock rods because of the censors demanding they do so to maintain their "C" rating (ages 15 and up).[[note]]Had to do with the CERO policy that depictions of violence against a restrained person will bump the rating to around D and companies prefer to have the A rating if possible.[[/note]]

* IKnewIt: Thanks to a few bits of dialog towards the end of the game, many people suspected that [[spoiler:Strangelove would become Huey's first wife and Otacon's mother]] long before it was confirmed in ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolidVThePhantomPain''.

** [[spoiler: "So wait, at the "endgame" the question of the discrepancy between Cécile and Paz's stories concerning their capture by the CIA and the origin of the tape Vladimir Zadornov used to assure Big Boss's involvement still hasn't been answered? One of them isn't telling the truth... now which one is the ''least'' likely to be a traitor...?"]]

* WriteWhoYouKnow: Cécile is based on the former communications manager for Konami Paris, Cécile Caminades, in name and appearance. Reportedly, Kojima did this due to losing a bet with Caminades.

* HeyItsThatVoice:
** In the Japanese version, Paz is voiced by Creator/NanaMizuki, and she had the honor of singing the first image song in the ''[[Franchise/MetalGear Metal Gear]]'' series.
*** [[spoiler:And in turn, Paz being actually an AxCrazy, ManipulativeBitch who is also the ''FinalBoss'' marks [[PlayingAgainstType the one of the few times Mizuki played a villain]].]]
** In the English version, Paz is voiced by Tara Strong, who also voiced Rikku in ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyX'' (whom coincidentally Paz shares a similar face model with).
** [[Creator/TomokazuSugita Kazuhira Miller]] sounded like [[Manga/{{Gintama}} Gintoki]], and so [[Creator/YuuKobayashi Cécile]] sounded a bit like Sacchan.
** In the English version, Miller's voiced by... no, not Creator/CamClarke, but Robin Atkin Downes, a.k.a. [[VideoGame/NoMoreHeroes Travis Touchdown]] and [[VideoGame/TeamFortress2 Medic]]. His delivery is pretty darn similar to Clarke's Miller, though. There's also some FridgeBrilliance in not casting Clarke: [[spoiler: Clarke never voiced Miller himself, but an imposter ''posing'' as Miller.]]
** Chico is voiced by Creator/KikukoInoue, who voiced Jaime Seed in ''VisualNovel/{{Snatcher}}'', Karen Hojo in ''VisualNovel/{{Policenauts}}'', Rosemary in ''[[VideoGame/MetalGearSolid2SonsOfLiberty Metal Gear Solid 2]]'' and The Boss in ''[[VideoGame/MetalGearSolid3SnakeEater Metal Gear Solid 3]]''. And since cute boys are not her usual forte, this counts as playing against type.
*** In the English version, Chico (Antony Del Rio) is [[VideoGame/KidIcarusUprising Pit]].
** In the English version, Cécile (Catherine Taber) is [[WesternAnimation/StarWarsTheCloneWars Padme Amidala]].
** Strangelove is voiced by the same voice actress ''and'' model of Raging Raven, Yumi Kikuchi, in ''[[VideoGame/MetalGearSolid4GunsOfThePatriots Metal Gear Solid 4]]''. On a related note, Strangelove is also voiced by Vanessa Marshall, who voiced Olga Gurlukovich in ''Metal Gear Solid 2'' (whom she bears a slight resemblance to), and EVA in ''[[VideoGame/MetalGearSolidPortableOps Portable Ops]]''.
** [[Creator/{{Mugihito}} Hot Coldman]] is voiced by the same voice actor as Sigma from the ''VideoGame/MegaManX'' series and one [[VisualNovel/UminekoWhenTheyCry Kinzo "DESIRE" Ushiromiya]] in the Japanese version. In English, he is voiced by H. Richard Greene (a.k.a. Congressman Robert Royce in ''Series/TheWestWing'').
** [[Creator/RomiPark Amanda]] sounds like [[Manga/{{Naruto}} Temari]] or [[Manga/{{Nana}} Nana Osaki]].
** Amanda's English voice actress is [[WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender Azula]].
** Donna Burke, the singer who sings "Heavens Divide" is the voice of [[Anime/MagicalGirlLyricalNanoha Raising Heart.]]
** Ramón Gálvez Mena is voiced in the Japanese version by [[Film/TheMatrix Agent Smith]].
** The AI weapons are [[Music/{{Vocaloid}} Hatsune Miku]]. They use Vocaloid voice synthesizers, but it's the voice of Yumi Kikuchi and Christine Kogure in the Japanese and English versions, respectively.

** In North America and Europe, some items had to be changed because they were real world products (even though one of the products, Pepsi NEX, was not actually available outside Japan anyhow).

** Kojima originally had no intention to direct ''Peace Walker''. He intended to write only a rough outline of the game's plot and leave the rest to his younger staff, much like he did with the previous {{PlayStation Portable}} games in the series (the ''Acid'' series and ''Portable Ops''), but he changed his mind when his younger staff did not understand the story's theme of nuclear deterrence.
