* SomeDexterityRequired: In order to make up for the lack of [[{{Waggle}} pressure-sensitive buttons]] on its gamepad, the [[UpdatedRerelease HD Rerelease]]'s UsefulNotes/{{Xbox360}} version has you aim your weapon without shooting by clicking in the left stick while pressing a button, but leaving you unable to ''put away'' your weapon without firing it unless you unequip and then requip your weapon, which on higher difficulties can easily result in a held-up enemy deciding to [[ISurrenderSuckers change his mind on the whole "surrendering" thing]]. It's incredibly awkward to say the least.

La-li-lu-le-lo being missing vowels in Japanese is a common misconception from people who don't understand who Japanese romanization works.
* LostInTranslation: "La Li Lu Le Lo" are missing vowel sounds in Japanese; the point of the name is that it isn't technically possible to write or say it in hiragana (because there's no distinction between "L" and "R" and the string is usually "Ra Ri Ru Re Ro"). The Patriots' name ''cannot be written or spoken''. This is never really gone into in the English version, since English doesn't do that, so it just seems to be meaningless babble.

Solid Snake and "R" and the string is usually "Ra Ri Ru Re Ro"). The Patriots' name ''cannot be written or spoken''. This is never really gone into Solidus themselves are both voiced by Akio Otsuka (rather than being voiced by different actors like in the English version, since English doesn't do that, so it just seems version), whereas Olga is voiced by Kyoko Terase in order emphasize her resemblance to be meaningless babble.Meryl. In addition, the two main hostages, Ames and President Johnson, are voiced by Masaharu Sato and Yuzuru Fujimoto, the same voice actors as Decoy Octopus and Kenneth Baker, whereas Mr. X switches between Kyoko Terase's own voice speaking through a filter and archived recordings of Kaneto Shiozawa as the Cyborg Ninja.

* GoneHorriblyRight: The fly in this particular soup is Ocelot -- [[spoiler:now dubbed "Liquid Ocelot" after his transplanted arm, freshly-taken from Liquid Snake's body. The Big Shell was meant to reenact Liquid Snake's failed revolution, with Solidus/Raiden in Liquid/Solid's place. When Liquid]] commandeers Ocelot (and Ray) in the finale, the "testing arena" spins out of control and runs aground in Lower Manhattan. Now [[spoiler:Liquid Ocelot]] is free, and at large.

* RedShirtArmy: Seal Team 10 lives up to their name. Unlike the 'face cards' ("King" Solidus, "Queen" Fortune, and "Jack" Raiden), their role is to act as bait while Raiden slithers his way into the plant. They are butchered by Dead Cell and go unlamented by everyone, including Pliskin and the Colonel.

Not only do they get slaughtered effortlessly by the Russian mercenaries, they also just stand around and do nothing while Ocelot murders their commanding officer and detonates explosives that sink the ship.

* ParryingBullets: Raiden and the Tengu mooks get the ability to deflect gunfire after about two minutes of practicing with it ''against nothing'', with no indication they've ever touched a sword before. The sword description actually states it's magnetic, and would allow anyone to block bullets so long as they faced they same direction. However, it is still outlandish, and might as well have been [[AppliedPhlebotinum coated in nanomachines]]. To explain further, a magnetic field will induce eddy currents in nonferrous metal objects (like bullets) as the object moves through the field. The field will then repel the induced eddy currents. This is the principle induction coil guns use to shoot nonferrous projectiles. Of course, you need a ''staggeringly'' strong magnetic field to significantly deflect bullets this way.

* ForgottenAnniversary: Rose is constantly nagging about "do you remember what day it is?"... [[CompletelyMissingThePoint Must be her birthday.]] WordOfGod stated that this was based on Kojima's own experiences with his wife.

** Yet another lampshade. This time it's Fatman's baby [=C4=]s, which blink intermittently and emit a loud beep. Stillman crafts a detector which is set to them, and is taken aback at how easy it all is. [[spoiler:Later, we learn the real bomb is odorless ''and'' silent.]]

** Kojima also plays a nasty trick in the lower deck when one of the pipe fittings is loose and dislodges if Snake flattens against the wall to hide. CLANK! "Iz zomebody dere?"
