* TheDreaded: Over the course of the game, you can listen in on several enemy soldiers who have clearly caught wind of you and your actions. In Afghanistan, a group of officers discuss how it's possible that a single operative is taking out so many of their men, and two soldiers in Africa discuss a rumor that Big Boss has returned, worried that they are going to be contracted to fight you.

** The Cyborg Ninja skin, and later on the Raiden costume. Super-fast sprinting! And...that's it. You lose the right to an S-Rank for a power that's honestly not worth it, and you don't even get the stealth or durability benefits of the Sneaking Suit or Battle Dress. What's worse, the Raiden skin[[labelnote:*]]increases sprinting speed by 50% of the standard speed[[/labelnote]] can only be obtained by S-Ranking all missions, despite being very similar to the Cyborg Ninja skin[[labelnote:*]]also increases sprinting speed by 50% of the standard speed[[/labelnote]] in performance, which can be obtained far, far earlier. It's better to just deploy a character with the Athlete ability[[labelnote:*]]increases sprinting speed by 20% of the standard speed (identical to the Mobility 3 upgrade to Venom Snake's bionic arm)[[/labelnote]].
** The [[spoiler:Parasite Suit. Mimic the powers of the Skulls! Except...not really. The Mist obscures your vision as much as the enemies, and the Invisibility is functionally identical to the cheaper, and far easier to use, Stealth Camo. Armor is the only one that would arguably be useful...except it has limited uses, compared to the raw, ''free'' defense increase of the Battle Dress. Oh, and in order to use any of these, you need Parasite units, which can only be obtained by extracting Skulls from replays of their fights. Did we mention that if you kill all the Skulls before extracting any, they'll all run away and leave you with nothing? Have fun]]!

** Mistranslation led people playing in English to believe that the Cyborg Ninja skin, and later on the Raiden costume fall to this trope. English version of the description of each says that it locks out S-Rank. Given that their only ability is to allow one to sprint super-fast[[labelnote:*]]Raiden skin increases sprinting speed by 50% of the standard speed, while the Cyborg Ninja skin does by 30%[[/labelnote]], and its protection and stealth capability are equivalent to a fatigue on an inappropriate terrain, it would have been an epic fail if it was rank-restricting as its English description suggests. Bonus points for the fact that Raiden skin can only be obtained with S-Ranking all the mainstream missions, and it is very easy to boost one's sprint speed by 20% ''with'' other outfits.[[labelnote:*]]+Mobility 3 upgrade of Snake, or the skill "Athlete"[[/labelnote]]

** The game features "Take On Me" by A-Ha, which was recorded and released in the same year that the game is set: 1984. The problem? The version used in the game is the re-recording from ''1985''.

* POVCam: Parts of the opening (when Snake is recovering in the hospital) is filmed from the perspective of him. The use of ShakyCam and TheOner also gives off this vibe for the general cutscenes. [[spoiler: This all comes home during TheReveal, during which the fact that the scene is filmed as a P.O.V. Cam is not revealed at first, and only revealed when everybody acknowledges the person at the camera's position and looks at the camera, revealing that the camera is in fact the vision of another character.]]

* ShakyCam: Used liberally in TheOner cutscenes, giving the impression that the cutscenes are filmed on a handheld camera by a physical cameraman.

* TheOner: Nearly every single cutscene is made without jump cuts, and often go out of their way to make it so that the camera doesn't make any "impossible movements" like moving through a door (the "cameraman" simply "quickens their pace" to move through the door before it closes). Combined with the use of ShakyCam, it creates a feeling that there's a cameraman right beside every single event, filming it as it happens.

*** There is, however, [[LoopholeAbuse an effective way of mitigating this difficulty]]. Before executing Side Op 82 (which normally only begins after you have accomplished at least 9 out of the 1st 10 episodes), go and infiltrate the Afghanistan Base Camp in free-roam, and make sure to get the invoice at the Delivery Point of the camp (which is at the very back of the camp, coincidentally the least guarded side). Then, execute Side Op 82 and the first half of "Hellbound" as stealthily as you can, so that you can use the Cardboard Box and be delivered to the Base Camp, no questions asked. With this strategy, you can then begin weaving your way through the guards (which are more sparsely distributed) and--as long as no snipers catch you, you'll be able to extract Emmerich with less difficulty. Of course, getting out through the aforementioned heavily-guarded front-side (where your chopper will be posted the first time) [[MortonsFork is not exactly a walk in the park either.]]
