* Big Bad: Skull Face, who wants to [[spoiler: use Metal Gear Sahelanthropus as a scare tactic to incite a worldwide race for nukes, which he will provide, but he has ultimate control over those nukes. With everyone afraid of nukes, he will release a parasite that kills anyone who speaks English, thereby halting cultural and linguistic imperialism through English]]. In Chapter 2, the closest there is to a Big Bad is [[spoiler: Huey, who releases a mutated form of parasite on Mother Base and indirectly leads to Quiet's supposed death]].

* DoingInTheWizard: Somewhat. [[spoiler:It's established that The End and possibly other members of the Cobras got their powers from Parasites. (Code Talker and Quiet use The End's parasites for respiratory and infiltration purposes. Code Talker also mentions how The Fear's parasites metabolized his fear into adrenaline and The Pain's parasites secreted insect pheromones.)]] However, some unexplained supernatural elements remain, such as The Sorrow and Tretij Rebenok's psychic abilities, and the unknown entity that gave The Fury and The Man On Fire their powers. Ocelot is convinced that there is a rational and scientific method to deconstruct and harness these powers, but that by the time they do the future's common sense will be incomprehensible to the people of the 1980's.

* DeadAllAlong:
** [[spoiler:Paz]] is dead the entire game, despite being seen in {{Hallucinations}}.
** This is revealed to have been the case for [[spoiler:[[VideoGame/MetalGearSolid3SnakeEater the Fury]]]] as well. [[spoiler:Rather than merely suffering extreme burns and becoming a ShellShockedVeteran by his experience with reentry, he had ''died'' on reentry, and his body had undergone DemonicPossession by an unknown [[OurGhostsAreDifferent pyrokinetic entity]] that was unable to escape his body due to him [[{{Determinator}} keeping his sense of self]]. This entity was later used in the creation of the Man on Fire from Volgin's corpse.]]

** Sahelanthropus, the Metal Gear mech in this entry, is Soviet in design, though it's implied that Huey had a hand in its construction. [[spoiler:Likewise, the Man on Fire (aka, Volgin's corpse) is also the result of Soviet experimentation, the [[OurGhostsAreDifferent pyrokinetic entity]] that possessed the Fury, and whatever the Sorrow left behind.]]

* OneHundredAndEight: The doctor in the prologue explains to Snake that 108 "foreign bodies" were embedded in the latter's body as a result of the events of Ground Zeroes. These "foreign bodies" consisted of shrapnel and fragments of human bone and teeth. [[spoiler: Most likely the bones and teeth of poor Paz when she exploded right in front of you.]]

* BloodSplatteredWarrior: Snake can be covered head to toes in blood in gameplay if you get wounded during a mission and has to shower to get it off. If he doesn't, he starts to stink, which causes flies to buzz around him and makes him easier to detect. You can also get blood splattered on you if you inflict brutal enough wounds at point blank range.

to:

* BloodSplatteredWarrior: BlamingTheRailroadedPlayerCharacter: Ocelot and Miller are too understanding to call Snake out when he has to make a tough call, but Huey Emmerich will always make sure to vilify Snake, even in situations like Episode 43 where Snake has only one option: [[spoiler:kill every single one of his soldiers on the Quarantine platform]].

** The [[spoiler: 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 [[spoiler: 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 [[spoiler: 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!]]

** During Episode 43, [[spoiler: someone in the Quarantine Facility wrote "mehr licht" ("more light") [[CouldntFindAPen in blood]] on the floor of one of the isolation rooms. This hints that the parasites within them are trying to drive them to go outdoors.]]

** Special mention goes to the Diamond Dogs soldier that [[spoiler:Quiet]] tries to kill, effortlessly [[CurbStompBattle tosses]] aside 3 other troops, [[spoiler:she]] pulls a knife and attempts to stab him in the throat, to which he [[spoiler:catches it with his teeth!]], if you look closely, you can even see his [[spoiler:teeth start to chip from the force]], Just... Damn!

* AKA47: Along with MGS V Ground Zeroes, this is the first (and last) Metal Gear game (counting the MSX game too because the MSX and NES games feature real weapons, at least in the manual illustration) with completely fictional military hardware, not just firearms. While they can be justified as Cipher's or Diamond Dogs' prototypes due to the isolated setting of the game, [[{{Retcon}} the description text outright states that the respective military hardwares are standard issue for the respective national force of origin]]
