*BodyHorror: And lots of it. From tearing enemies to shreds, to being melted or dismembered, this series supplies enough to make most gore fans happy. Also see: The Many Deaths of You.

* DarkerAndEdgier: In ''Metal Slug 5'', [[BigBad Morden]], [[TheDragon Allen]], and the Rebel Army are nowhere to be found in this game. Instead, you fight a much different terrorist group than the villains listed above, ranging from masked terrorists to armed mecha. The humor the series is known for is basically nonexistent, aside from the ability to become fat being retained for the first mission. However, most of the enemies are just edits of Rebel soldier sprites. The game also features a [[AutobotsRockOut heavy metal soundtrack]] in comparison to the previous games.

* ZombieApocalypse: The second ''Metal Slug 3'' level pits you against zombies, apparently caused by an alien-infested meteorite. They reappear in ''4'' with no context. You can be turned into a zombie, which greatly reduces your walking speed and and confines you to using your pistol, but gives you an obscenely powerful blood vomit attack instead of grenades and makes you immune to normal mooks' attacks. Later in ''3'', evil duplicates of the player get turned into zombies… and unfortunately also have the blood vomit attack.

* CompilationRerelease: Metal Slug Anthology on PlaystationTwo, PSP, and Wii collects the first seven games in the series (1-6 and X) Though it misses the two UsefulNotes/NeoGeo Pocket games, as well as Metal Slug Advance and Metal Slug 3D, and the games suffer from slowdown you don't get with emulating the original ROMs with MVSPSP.
