** ''Metal Gear Solid: Integral'', which came out in Japan only for the [=PS1=] and for PC everywhere else. It was mainly a RecursiveImport of the English version, but with a couple of additional game modes (Very Easy mode, First Person View Mode), new Codec frequencies, and an alternate costume for Meryl in addition to the ones for Snake and the Ninja. However, the real meat of the game came with the third disc containing over 300 VR training missions, which was sold by itself as a literal {{mission pack sequel}} in the west.
** On the other hand, this version severely gimped the NoFourthWall aspect of the Psycho Mantis fight, as a good number of compatible games mentioned by Mantis in the original Japanese version were cut out, due to using the English voice acting as the base for the ''Integral'' version, and [[NoExportForYou those cut games were only released in Japan]]. The most notable victims of this were Mantis' mentions of ''VisualNovel/{{Policenauts}}'' and ''VisualNovel/TokimekiMemorial'', as well as the special message from Kojima triggered when he detects save data from both ''VisualNovel/{{Snatcher}}'' and ''Policenauts''.

** Ocelot. His main motivation for wanting a world filled with strife is explained as him wanting people to have the ability to actually voice their true emotions and viewpoints, something he knows the current age forbids. The fact that [[spoiler:Liquid Ocelot]] states something similar in ''Metal Gear Solid 4'' implies that for once, he actually was being honest about his goals that time. This explaination requires a lot of work and luck to get, though, as it can only be accessed after surviving the third torture round.

** Thanks to the added power of the [=GameCube=], the Genome Soldiers are not only much more clever and dangerous (going into search mode when suspicious), they move as part of a team searching and clearing out rooms. Their fire and movement mirrors a special forces unit much more closely.
** This may also be in part that the game uses the same engine as ''Metal Gear Solid 2'', which also features similar AI behavior.

## Like in ''Metal Gear 2'', Snake's initial objective is to locate a hostage in the enemy's base (Dr. Marv in ''Metal Gear 2'', the DARPA Chief in this game) by tracking him down with a radar. [[spoiler:However, the bad guys see this coming and they implant the tracking device (Dr. Marv's signal emitter or the DARPA Chief's nanomachines) into a disguised enemy agent (Black Color/Ninja or Decoy Octopus).]]

* 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.
