* ArtisticLicenseBiology: Anyone who's passed 10th grade Biology knows that "recessive genes" doesn't mean "inferior genes." Later games in the series retconned and invoked the trope; Liquid was raised to believe that he was inferior so that he would resent his brother. [[WordOfGod Kojima has stated that this was actually one of Liquid's character flaws; he is not that knowledgeable with genetics.]]
** Not to mention, Liquid being misinformed about being the twin with the recessive genes may not untrue after all. Judging by appearances, he expresses at least one recessive trait: blonde hair. Brown and blond are both alleles on one of the genes for hair color with brown being the hetero or homogeneously dominant phenotype, meaning Liquid's expression of blonde hair (especially when his father was brown haired as well) is a recessive trait that can only come about from from having both recessive alleles in the phenotype for the hair color gene. Hmm.
* ArtisticLicensePhysics: Otacon explains that one of the advantages of Metal Gear Rex launching a nuclear warhead with its railgun is that there is no need for conventional rocket propulsion attached to the warhead itself, which negates traditional missile tracking systems as those require a heat signature. However, any object that gets launched with enough velocity to land over a thousand miles away would gain comparable level of heat from air friction alone.

* AlasPoorVillain: Most of the bosses get an absurdly long drawn-out death scene in which they tell you a sob story, even if they never displayed any redeaming qualities before they were defeated.

* RandomDrop: If the player kills a guard without triggering the alert phase, a ration or an ammo will sometime appear after the enemy's body disappears. This is a play mechanic that was carried over from the MSX2 games, but was dropped in subsequent sequels.

** After defeating Raven a second time, he says that Solid and Liquid Snake are "not of this world" and he does not want to know where they came from. While it's easy to brush this off as more spiritual mumbo jumbo, it actually foreshadows that [[spoiler: both Snakes are actually clones of Big Boss. Therefore, Solid and Liquid Snake weren't brought into the world through natural means.]]

** Similarly, Otacon refers to "Rivermore National Labs". What he means is [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lawrence_Livermore_National_Laboratory Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory]].

* AntiFrustrationFeature: Fighting Johnny in the prison cell. In the original game, you could snap his neck. The remake has Johnny become unconscious instead, which helps players that are aiming for a no kill run.
