* NoFourthWall: It got to the point of LampshadeHanging: during Act 4, Otacon calls Snake and tells him to put in Disc 2. Then he remembers that, because the game is on a dual-layer Blu-ray disc, there ''is'' no Disc 2 (Snake tells Otacon to stop fooling around, while players freak out due to the exact location of this conversation). Then, [[spoiler:when Psycho Mantis shows up ''again'', he tries to pull the same tricks. However, he can't read your memory since the PS3 doesn't ''have'' a memory card, and he can only make the controller vibrate if the player is using the [=DualShock=] 3. And again in the previous boss fight, where the Colonel recommends using the same tricks against a different psychic boss, only to have them all shot down. The Colonel even nonchalantly explains to Rose that they beat Psycho Mantis with controller-based tactics.]]

Added DiffLines:

* DeconstructorFleet: If VideoGame/MetalGearSolid2 deconstructs the concept of a video game sequel then VideoGame/MetalGearSolid4 in turn deconstructs the concept of a video game franchise. Metal Gear Solid 4's plot is an increasingly chaotic parody of the series' established tropes and existing routines. It {{lampshades}} that the series has become a {{Franchise Zombie}}. Metal Gear Solid 4 utilizes many of the series' staples only to twist them.

* YourSonAllAlong: At the end, in a ThrowTheDogABone moment it's reveal that Rose's son is Raiden's (her marriage to Campbell was a sham to prevent the Patriots coming after the kid to get leverage over Raiden). He [[WeaponJr then hammers it in by doing the same moves Raiden does with a toy sword]].

* VomitIndescretionShot: As mentioned above, go above and beyond in killing soldiers and Snake will have a flash back and HeelRealization, causing him to messily empty his stomach right in the middle of the battlefield.

** Snake may be midway through a vital mission, and he may have just successfully tracked down his old friend Naomi, [[spoiler: who appears to have major health problems of her own]], but he still finds time to fake dropping his cigarette so he can try and look up her skirt.[[note]]Very possibly a bit of lampshading aimed at the player; in the game, cutscenes are interactive at times, with the option sometimes given to switch to Snake's POV. A player used to this might expect the POV option to appear at this point, but it does not.[[/note]]

Added DiffLines:

** The final boss is a fistfight between Snake and Liquid, just like in the first Solid game. To top it off, as the fight goes on it plays iconic songs from 1, 2, and 3 while stills of Ocelot are placed over the battle, culminating with one final "You're pretty good" after it's all over.

** An entire chapter takes place in the same map that Metal Gear Solid 1 did, including a dream sequence of that game's first playable scene.
