* CharacterTitle: ''Solid Snake'' was actually intended to be the main title of the game rather than ''Metal Gear 2'', as evident by the fact that it's spelled in larger letters on the game's logo and was more frequently referred to as such on MSX-focused publications in Japan at the time of its release. Even the print ads for the game and the spine for the official soundtrack had the title written as ソリッドスネーク メタルギア2 or ''Solid Snake: Metal Gear 2''. However the franchise's later revival as ''Metal Gear Solid'' negated this.

* HoistByHisOwnPetard: You know the stinger missiles Snake has to use to shoot down the Hind D around the heliport area? Well, those Stinger missiles he gained were originally supposed to be installed onto the war machines of Zanzibar Land, including the Goriate tanks and the Hind D gunships. This is also how Red Blaster ended up being defeated; he attempts to "cook you slowly with his grenades" when you enter his wire trap boss room in the Tower Building 30th floor (you enter the room from an elevator) while searching for a carrier pigeon, but all you have to do is throw your own grenades at him on the ceiling (you have to trip his trap and kill him; his room is on the way to the roof of the Tower Building, where you'll find the pigeon with the code you need to be able to contact Dr. Marv).

* IDontLikeTheSoundOfThatPlace & TakeItToTheBridge: The Bridge of Sorrow separates the mainland from the detention camp and final areas of the game. Dr. Madnar manages to scurry across first. [[spoiler:When Gustava goes next, the bridge gets destroyed by a missile launched by Metal Gear D, sending her flying back to Snake's side of the crevice. Dr. Madnar is then re-captured by armed guards.]]

* ArtifactTitle: While a new version of the titular Metal Gear appears in this game, it is never treated as an ultimate threat like the one from the first game, simply being an obstacle that Snake must deal with in his mission. In fact, many Japanese publications at the time of the game's release (such as ''MSX Fan'' and ''MSX Magazine'') actually referred to the game as ''Solid Snake'' as if it was the main title and even the official soundtrack is titled ''Solid Snake: Metal Gear 2'' on the spine, suggesting an attempt to rebrand the series under Solid Snake's name before its later revival as ''Metal Gear Solid''.



* CharacterTitle: Subtitle in this case.

Added DiffLines:

* WolfpackBoss: The Ultrabox/Four Horsemen team of mercenaries are fought together in a Tower Building elevator after you've advanced far enough in the game to get a "This elevator will be your coffin" codec message from [[spoiler:Gray Fox]].

* PointOfNoReturn: Despite the broken bridge, the player can still travel back and forth between the Detention Camp and the other places in Zanzibar Land by using the cardboard box to transport himself via one of the shipping trucks, which is a necessity if one has forgotten to [[spoiler:change the shape of Gustava's brooch]]. However, once Snake has acquired the [[spoiler:MSX cartridge]], he will fall into a trap door where he is forced to face the final gauntlet of boss challenges.

Added DiffLines:

* KillItWithFire: After destroying Metal Gear, [[spoiler:Gray Fox]] jumps out and sets Snake on fire. You MUST get rid of all the items in your inventory that have flames over them to put the fire out before it kills you; this will force you to [[NoGearLevel discard all weapons, all your keys, and a few other now-useless items such as the gas mask and a "National Anthem" cassette.]] Thankfully, it won't burn your rations or the bullet-proof vest (which cuts the damage you take in half).


Added DiffLines:

* NoGearLevel: You have to confront [[spoiler:Gray Fox on foot]] with just your fists; after you get him out of Metal Gear, he sets you on fire and forces you to drop your weapons, which are burned up. This also applies to [[spoiler:Big Boss until you solve the door puzzle in his room and get the lighter and spray can, which acts as a makeshift flamethrower]], but after defeating the final boss, Holly will give you a replacement pistol with unlimited ammo to confront the final escape.

* BrokenBridge: The bridge to the Detention Camp gets destroyed by Metal Gear when Snake arrives there, forcing him to go to the Tower Building balcony and hang glide across the crevice to continue. You only need to do this once; after you obtain the last keycards, 7, 8 9, and the green card, you can use the cardboard box on a conveyor in both the Detention Camp and a Level 9 room in the Tower Building to travel between the two.
