** And in ''[=MGS3=]'', there are several blatantly obvious hints that EVA might not be who she says she is, in her very first scene. She fails to answer the code phrase, instead gunning down several mooks... with a Mauser C96, which was only used by one nation during the Cold War: [[spoiler:China]]. She even uses the "Bandit Shooting" technique that was invented specifically to take advantage of that gun's tremendous recoil. [[spoiler:She ends up being a Chinese triple agent tasked with tracking down the Philosopher's Legacy]]. Of course, Snake [[IdiotHero doesn't pick up on any of this]], due to EVA's AbsoluteCleavage. [[DistractedByTheSexy Neither do most players]].

** Cloning was perfected extremely early, and apparently, so were exoskeletons, mecha, holographic interfaces, PDAs and [[spoiler:gigantic Big Brother ships.]] Oh, and [[spoiler:batshit AI.]]

*** Snake, at least when compared to the majority of his supernaturally-gifted or crazy-equipped foes. He does have enormous willpower and is MadeOfIron, but he can't carry an M61 vulcan cannon and doesn't [[spoiler:usually]] have kickass battle armor to help him.

* BoringButPractical: All games post-''[=MGS2=]'' have a tranquilizer gun than can attach a suppressor. It's usually one of the first weapons you get. It will likely see more use than all of your rocket launchers, shotguns, rail guns, grenade launchers, and heavy machiens guns combined.

** Even in ''[=MGS3=]'', Big Boss' support staff had that tiny bit of psychosis in them: Para-Medic talks enthusiastically about genes and cloning, Sigint's kinda obsessed with his projects, like the mask that could blink and the bioelectric battery; Zero loves his Bond movies, but seemed to have had a particular fascination not just with the gadgets, but also the warmongering Bond ''villains'', like [[ArchEnemy Ernst]] [[BiggerBad Stavro]] [[NebulousEvilOrganisation Blofeld]].

*** The release of the ''Phantom Pain'' has averted this with a new example of this trope, in that the entire franchise begins and ends with a charcter being briefed on Solid Snake's mission to outer heaven.
