* ContinuityPorn: The sheer number of {{continuity nod}}s and {{shout out}}s to past entries, both subtle and blatant, is absolutely ludicrous, reaching all the way back to the {{MSX}}2 games. For example, Liquid's crashed Hind from the tower fight can be found in a corner.

* OneHitKill: Downplayed as it's nonlethal, but the ''Tranquilizer Gun'' only needs one shot to put an enemy to sleep. A headshot is instant, a graze will take a few seconds but they will put the target to sleep nonetheless. As added bonus, the gun also makes no noise, and enemy put to sleep or even hit won't even raise an alarm. All things considered, disabling an enemy is as good as killing them in StealthBasedGame, thus meriting an entry here.

* LethalJokeItem: The Tanegashima costs a million Drebin points; for this, you get a muzzle-loading single-shot musket which can only be reloaded standing up. Seems useless, until you realize that firing outdoors has a one-in-three chance of producing a gigantic whirlwind that blankets a massive area with item drops.

** The Tranquilizer Gun is practically useless for combat situations, especially against mechanical enemies as it's obviously a nonlethal weapon. But it's a staple for stealth runs for the sheer fact that it does not break concealment. It makes no sound, and enemies put to sleep will raise no alarm even when it's in his/her partner's plain sight. Also while it's not a OneHitKill, it comes pretty close; a single hit ''will'' put your enemy to sleep. A headshot will put your target to sleep instantly while a graze takes a few seconds but will put them to sleep nonetheless.

* GenreSavvy: When the Gekko see a cardboard box lying around, the first thing they do is crush it beneath their feet.



* PlayingPossum: Snake can now play dead, either by lying down and relaxing his body, or remaining motionless after being knocked over by an attack. Enemies who are actively searching for him will check bodies though, [[GenreSavvy giving them a little kick as they pass by]], so this ability is mostly useful when Snake wants to be overlooked during a larger battle between PMC forces and their enemies, where no one has time to check the bodies anyway. Alternatively, if Snake lies down among a bunch of already present bodies, patroling soldiers might simply consider him another corpse on the pile.

* PrecisionFStrike: Laughing Octopus delivers quite possibly the first f-bomb in the entire franchise (or at the very least the first f-bomb to make it past localization in the English version), which makes it just that much more unsettling.

* PuzzleBoss: The Gekko in the basement of Shadow Moses. Granted, you CAN take it down the conventional way, but the easiest way to do it without giving yourself away is the PuzzleBoss way.
** [[PeoplePuppets Screaming Mantis]] cannot be fought like the previous B&Bs. She will simply deflect or FlashStep away from your bullets. To beat her, you have to [[spoiler:shoot her Mantis Doll away from her, then [[HoistByHisOwnPetard pick it up and use it against her.]]]]

* TakeCover: The player can press a button to have Snake snap to cover, from which he can pop out and shoot enemies much like ''VideoGame/GearsOfWar''.

** In Act 3, when Ocelot takes control of the SOP system, and brings down the helicopters first, some of the angles of the pilot reactions and army guys struggling to stay on the falling helicopters are visually similar to the helicopter crashes from ''Film/BlackHawkDown''.
