** It even attacks [[Franchise/MetalGear the series itself,]] twisting the NurtureOverNature Aesop of the original ''MGS'' into a sinister AncientConspiracy that reshapes people's whole personalities through social engineering. Really puts [[HarsherInHindsight a dark spin]] on Naomi's "people can choose how they live" speech, no?

* NonStandardGameOver: Earned if you're spotted by the guards while playing some of the higher difficulties, which became a standard feature. More notably, letting Solid Snake get killed in the lead-up to the final boss. He can handle himself in a fight, but he's not invincible, and the game automatically ends if he dies.

** There are two ways you can get a 'Mission Failed' which are highly unlikely in normal gameplay: falling down the lift shaft on Strut A and letting the bomb explode after the battle with Fatman. Both of these have their own specially-created images for the game over screen.

* VideoGameCrueltyPunishment: During Raiden's sword training session, if you hit Snake either by mistake or intentionally, he will fire his gun at you, calling you a moron.

** Also, if you fire at Snake's ammo-dropping chopper instead of Solidus' jet, the chopper will just fly away.

** Also, There are seagulls on the Big Shell, and if you fire at Snake's ammo-dropping chopper instead of Solidus' jet, chase away the chopper seagulls then look up in the sky in first person, the seagulls will just fly away.crap on you. There are also splatters of seagull poop that you can slip on, and there's one pipe covered with it that can cause you to slip off, fall into the water, and drown.
** Killing enough of the seagulls on the Big Shell as Raiden causes the Colonel and Rose to call you, and they chew you out over your animal cruelty. ''Rose will break up with you'' and won't let you save until you apologize. Same goes for hitting hostages.

* DevelopersForesight:
** Par for the course for most ''Metal Gear Solid'' games. The levels may not be very long, especially if you skip past all the cutscenes, but they're full of tiny details.
** When you are taking Emma across water, Raiden tells her to hear his heart in order to keep calm and not drown. Take some Diazepam, and Emma's oxygen lowers at a slower pace.
** During the Tanker chapter, Scott Dolph (the Commandant of the Marines) is giving a speech about [=RAY=], a copy of which Otacon has hacked from his personal computer; thus, there is a countdown to the moment when he winds up the speech. However, the Commandant [[DespiteThePlan will occasionally go off-script]] and order his men to stretch or perform drills, stopping the clock and causing the guards' sight cones to go berserk. You can use this to your advantage, though, if you shoot him in the head with a tranquilizer; the countdown will stop until he can awaken (while still standing erect) and continue the speech.
** At one point in the game, you have to find a hostage by calling out to them, [[HollerButton with a button command that stops working after the hostage is found]]. If you then backtrack to the room with a parrot in it, and call out to the parrot enough times, it learns to say the phrase and adds it into its usual repertoire.
** The parrot can also learn to say "Enemy sighted, requesting backup" if you get caught too much in that area.
** It's possible to see Snake in a box on the CD connecting bridge. If you shoot him he gets a ! mark above his head and runs away. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cNoqJ8wVVyQ&t=6m15s If you call him afterwards,]] Raiden tells him about it. Snake denies knowing anything about it. In a later Codec call about the box, Snake irritably tells Raiden that thanks to him, a couple of his boxes were destroyed.
** If you ask Pliskin about the C4 sensors that Stillman gives you, additional lines will be included depending on if you've defused all the C4 or defeated Fatman.

** When the player first gains controller input over Raiden, he is instructed by the Colonel [[HelloInsertNameHere to type in his name]] (and you can't leave the dock until you do), something ''Metal Gear'' has never done before or since.

* LonelyBachelorPad: It's mentioned that Raiden's home looks like this, despite having a girlfriend. A sparse bed, bare walls, nothing else. When Rose broke in there because she started getting paranoid that he had a second girlfriend (he wouldn't let her visit his room), she commented that "There was nobody there. Not even you."
