** A frequent mission template in the game involves eliminating enemy commanders for whoever hired the hit. Generally, they want the commander assassinated, but Miller often advises recruiting them to Mother Base so as not to waste good talent. Missions that follow this include Episode 3: "A Hero's Way," Episode 7: "Red Brass," Episode 8: "Occupation Forces," Episode 19: "On The Trail," Episode 21: "The War Economy," Episode 22: "Retake the Platform," Episode 26: "Hunting Down," Episode 41: "Proxy War Without End," and most significantly, Episode 30: "[[BigBad Skull Face]]."

** Huey's involvement with Diamond Dogs starts and ends with the AI Pod. [[spoiler:When Venom Snake enters the building where Cipher is holding Huey, Snake stumbles upon the AI Pod, which is the same one based on The Boss. As it tries to recognize him, Huey greets his old friend and adds "[[JustAMachine It's just a machine]]." Later, when the scientist is put on trial on suspicion for various crimes he has committed against MSF and Diamond Dogs, Miller intends to use the AI Pod as evidence against Huey. The latter tries to discredit the presented evidence by saying that it's just a machine, and shouldn't be listened to. The AI pod promptly proves him wrong as it turns out to be critical evidence to get him exiled from Mother Base.]]

* TranquilFury: [[spoiler: In TheStinger, Miller finally finds out about what really happened to Big Boss: The legendary soldier is in hiding and is building Outer Heaven without any input from his former friends whereas the man Miller knows as "Venom Snake" is actually a decoy. The one who delivers these news is not even the real Big Boss, but rather Ocelot. Miller, who earlier lost two of his limbs and almost his life, feels utterly betrayed and speaks with venomous hatred in his voice as he vows to send Big Boss to hell.]]

* AmazonBrigade: Much like in ''Peace Walker'' before it, its possible to fill ''your entire base'' with women, with the exception of Miller, Ocelot, Code Talker, and Huey. Its very time-consuming however since in order to effectively get that many women, you have to keep grinding the few Prisoner Extraction missions that have female prisoners (Like 02 and 03) and repeat the Main Story missions that feature female prisoners (like 09 and 14) since, once again much like in Peace Walker, females are only found as prisoners or as volunteers.

** Serving as a sort of BookEnds to the revenge arc of Miller and Snake: immediately after Snake defeats Sahelanthropus, the DD chopper holding Miller descends, with Miller reaching out his hand to Snake--in about the very same fashion he reaches out to Big Boss when Mother Base fell nine years ago. They began losing everything to Skull Face; they end restored, victorious and about to pass judgment on Skull Face.

* StillWearingTheOldColors:
** You can invoke this by deploying Venom Snake with the same Sneaking Suit from ''[[VideoGame/MetalGearSolidPeaceWalker Peace Walker]]'' and [[VideoGame/MetalGearSolidVGroundZeroes Ground Zeroes]], which feature the FOX Unit and MSF's logo on the shoulder, even though Big Boss had left the unit and the United States military years ago.
** Within ''The Phantom Pain'' proper, the game's particular Sneaking Suit becomes a double example, as in addition to the FOX Unit logo on one shoulder, it also has the MSF logo, even though in the aftermath of ''Ground Zeroes'' the MSF Mother Base is destroyed and the force disbanded. The upgraded Sneaking Suits, [[SubvertedTrope however]], notably swap it out for the proper Diamond Dogs logo.

* LanguageEqualsThought: A major theme of the game. Skull Face explains that [[spoiler: he lost his mother tongue, and he changed when he learned different languages.]] The game is set in 1984, [[ShoutOut a reference to]] [[Literature/NineteenEightyFour the novel]] and it's {{Newspeak}}. Snake has to capture interpreters in order to understand EnemyChatter, and quite a bit of said chatter is about languages. Finally, the game's AppliedPhlebotinum is [[spoiler: a parasite that can turn entire languages into {{Brown Note}}s. Skull Face's EvilPlan is to use the parasites to kill off the English language.]]

* LostForever: [[AvertedTrope Averted]] as stated above with all four buddies, only having them fultoned out if they're seriously injured. [[spoiler: Quiet will eventually leave Diamond Dogs once Episode 45 is unlocked, and after the mission ends, she leaves Diamond Dogs, removing access to her unique skills or equipment for the rest of the game unless the player decides to reset their save file.]]
** Note that [[spoiler: Quiet's departure]] only occurs if [[spoiler: you max out her bond.]] If you avoid doing that, by either [[spoiler: never using her]] or [[spoiler: deliberately attacking her to lower the bond, she won't leave, as long as you never let it hit max after the relevant point in the story. Equipping the butterfly emblem will also prevent Quiet's departure from occuring.]]
** The Version 1.06 patch added the ability recover [[spoiler:Quiet]], by replaying Episode 11 seven times. On the seventh replay, the mission will be tagged "Reunion" and Quiet can be brought back to Mother Base again if she is extracted alive.
