* EstablishingSeriesMoment: You fight your very first boss roughly ten minutes into the first mission. Said boss? [[HumongousMecha A Metal Gear]] with sword-arms, a beam-cannon for a head, and so many rockets [[SteppingStonesInTheSky you will use them as platforms to get to it]], but what really cements this fight as an establishing moment is how you can and ''will'' cut it to ribbons while [[CrowningMusicOfAwesome RULES OF NATURE]] plays in the background. If that didn't convince you this would be an absolutely spectacular game, nothing will.
** It also serves as a contrast to the main ''Metal Gear Solid'' series. In a standard ''[=MGS=]'' game, a Metal Gear would be the final boss. In ''Revengeance''? Merely the opening act.

Added DiffLines:

* GameBreakingBug: [[spoiler:Metal Gear EXCELSUS]]'s fight has significant scripting that changes the arena and the boss's model and behavior at the end of each phase, but this is camouflaged by the cutscenes of [[spoiler:Raiden chopping off its limbs]]. Since the Bloodlust weapon deals enough raw damage to skip phases on the spot, using them in this fight can ''crash the game''.

* LikeCannotCutLike: The High Frequency Blades can cut anything... except other High Frequency Blades. Particularly odd since even the largest of them cannot cut the smallest ones, and even Murasama, which is explicitly stated to be superior to other blades in the game ([[spoiler:and proves it by being the only weapon capable of damaging Armstrong's nanomachine body]]), cannot cut through Raiden' fairly standard HF Blade.

* WesternSamurai: Samuel "Jetstream" Rodrigues is a Japanese-Brazilian cyborg [[spoiler:(in reality a human with a nanotechnology armor)]] with part-Japanese ancestry who has an [[IaijutsuPractitioner iaijutsu-based fighting style]].

* AsYouKnow:
** Courtney explains the ''entire'' rise and fall of the SOP system of ''Metal Gear Solid 4'' when Raiden asks her what she knows about it, despite Raiden having been personally involved with those events. Lampshaded as he's actually quizzing her about what she knows.
** Lampshaded in the cutscene at the start of the Abkhazia insertion mission, where Raiden tries to say that he's been through the briefing material, only for Kevin to insist.
** All of the conversations with Doktor about the history and specifications of Cyborg enhancement is full of this, for obvious reasons. Funnily enough, Raiden gets annoyed at Doktor a few times for rambling about things he already knows.

-->'''Raiden:''' Gimmicky shit like that won't cut it in a real fight.
** The Fox Blade pre-order bonus blade may also count. One one hand, it's the sword of [[MetalGearSolid Gray Fox]], and at full strength can rip the crap out of anything sans bosses in one to two hits, making it a GameBreaker for beating the game. On the other hand, it's not very effective for going for S ranks, and it has a short blade mode time.
* BackStab: You can run up behind enemies before they spot you and stab them through the back for an OneHitKill.

* BlockingStopsAllDamage: Parrying is vital to simply passing the second stage.

Just goes to show [[spoiler:how insanely strong the Excelsus is.]] Also subverted with the powerful blows of [[spoiler:Steven Armstrong himself.]]
* BloodierAndGorier: Gameplay focuses on cutting enemies into hundreds of bloody bits, instead of sneaking around and shooting as in the ''Solid'' games. Subverted with the Japanese version of the game, as all the blood in the game is [[BlackBlood changed from red to white]].

** Raiden asks Bladewolf about some of the crazy gibberish the AI Colonel in ''[=MGS2=]'' was spouting: they come to the conclusion that Gubayama might've been a sumo wrestler based on the "yama" part of the name, but who or what Shibomnigee is is lost on them.

He's also revealed in a call with Doktor to have read up quite a bit on AI and what determines them to be truly intelligent after his "memorable" chats with the AI Colonel.



* HumanResources: Raiden heals by cutting up cyborgs and ''tearing out their artificial spines'', which are filled with regenerative fluids. Justified in-game by the nature of Raiden's customised cyborg body; it's deliberately missing that particular component in order to maximise combat efficiency and because doing it Raiden's way is an infinitely quicker way to heal compared to using the repair units their intended way, which isn't much faster than the speed humans would naturally heal at.
