Added DiffLines:

* PottyEmergency: One of the guards has a brief cutscene where he suddenly has the need to go relieve himself. He decides to solve the problem by just peeing over the edge of the strut roof he's patrolling. Going under the stream normally nets an amusing Codec call from Campbell and Rose, while going under with the box on will get you spotted.

Added DiffLines:

* DistractedByTheSexy: From this game onwards, you can distracts male guards using [[BlandNameProduct Girly Magazine]]. Of course, it didn't work on ladies and unmanned units.
** Averted by Major Raikov in ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolid3SnakeEater'', who is implied to be homosexual and [[{{Squick}} in a relationship with Big Bad Colonel Volgin.]]

*** Raiden is stuck in a bad remake of ''TheTrumanShow'', which only ends by crashing a ship straight through the set dressing. He calls out his unseen maestro during the finale.

* GainaxEnding: [[MGS2Ending An extremely prominent example.]] The ending is written to confuse the player a lot whether what Raiden sees in New York City are real or not. [[spoiler:Snake popping out of nowhere for no reason after you kill Solidus, and Rosemary suddenly standing in front of you talking about changing the future.]] These could have been an illusion if it were not TheStinger that reveals that everything you've been through is indeed real, and the fact that certain plot-vital sequences had to be cut [[TooSoon after 9/11]] didn't help at all! Needless to say, ''Metal Gear Solid 2'' is the single most confusing game in the ''Metal Gear'' franchise.

Being a ''Franchise/MetalGear'' game, you can expect [[StoryToGameplayRatio a whole lot of chatter]] and the plot to be [[DenserAndWackier denser than a cement block]]. However, things really get ramped UpToEleven in this installment, with lengthy sequences of cutscenes and Codec calls that can last up to half an hour. Also introduced are The Patriots, a ruling cabal which has secretly been orchestrating every ''Metal Gear'' game (news to FOXHOUND and co.), and the series' famous KudzuPlot takes root here. The game is especially remembered for laying down one {{mind screw}} of an ending which has been analyzed endlessly and even has its [[MGS2Ending very own page here]] on TV Tropes.

Two years have passed since [[VideoGame/MetalGearSolid the Shadow Moses incident]]. Due to an intelligence leak, [[LensmanArmsRace the militaries of the world have learned how to create and manufacture their own Metal Gears]]: a [[WalkingTank highly-advanced mobile tank]] capable of launching a nuclear warhead.

Solid Snake, now a leader of the anti-Metal Gear activist group "Philanthropy", follows a tip-off that the United States Marine Corps has developed a new model of Metal Gear and sneaks on-board the oil tanker secretly transporting it. Before he can leak the images to the media, however, the tanker is suddenly attacked by a group of Russian mercenaries and destroyed, spilling millions of gallons of crude oil into the ocean. As a result, Solid Snake is [[{{Frameup}} framed]] as an eco-terrorist and goes off the grid.

In response to the spill, the United States government builds a marine decontamination facility named "Big Shell" off the coast of New York. But two years later, Big Shell is captured by a terrorist group calling themselves the "Sons of Liberty". A rookie FOXHOUND agent codenamed "Raiden" is tasked with infiltrating the facility and rescuing the hostages held by the Sons of Liberty; hostages that include the [[UsefulNotes/ThePresidents President of the United States]]. But not only are the Sons of Liberty backed up by a band of Russian mercenaries and a rogue American counter-terrorism unit called "Dead Cell", but their leader claims to be Solid Snake himself.
