* ABloodyMess: After Snake is captured, Otacon gives him a bottle of ketchup. It's possible to use this ketchup while Snake's on the floor during a guard's bathroom break, causing the guard to think Snake is dead and open the door.

FOXHOUND has gone rogue and taken control of a classified Alaskan nuclear disposal facility on Shadow Moses Island. Their new leader is a mysterious man who [[EvilTwin is the spitting image of Snake]], but calls himself [[MeaningfulName "Liquid Snake"]]. They demand that the U.S. government turn over the remains of Big Boss and a ransom of $1 billion within 24 hours, or they will launch a nuclear strike against America. With the clock ticking down on their deadline, Snake must infiltrate the facility, ascertain the status of any hostages and whether Shadow Moses is ''really'' capable of launching a nuclear missile, and neutralize the traitorous members of FOXHOUND if necessary.

* ExpositoryGameplayLimitation: Near the end of the game, Liquid has Gray Fox pinned under the leg of Metal Gear. Liquid is, at this moment, unprotected, and Snake is in a position to take him out with a Stinger missile - but would kill Gray Fox in the process. Should the player try to fire, Snake mutters, "I can't do it!"

* ExplainExplainOhCrap: After taking down Liquid's Hind D, Snake asks Otacon to fix the seemingly broken elevator he needs to proceed; as it turns out, the elevator starts working on its own shortly afterwards, and when Snake gets on it, the weight limit warning goes off. As the elevator goes down, Snake gets a Codec call from Otacon, who reveals that he had gone back to his lab to retrieve one of the remaining for stealth camo prototypes for Snake, only to discover that all four prototypes are missing. He goes on to say that it seems that someone was intentionally holding the elevator Snake is currently in, and that the weight limit warning went off for him as well; as Otacon explains, he only weighs 135 pounds, whereas the elevator weight limit is 650 pounds. Snake realizes that it would take at least five people to go over that limit...

* InformedAttribute: In the original game, Liquid Snake and Solid Snake are supposed to be physically identical; seemingly, Snake's (or Liquid's, depending on who was designed first) change in hair color was a last minute one, since Meryl's dialog is that he looks ''exactly the same'' as Liquid. This is changed in the GC version; both Campbell and Meryl note their hair color is different.

* AdaptationOriginConnection: In the original [=MSX2=] games, Solid Snake and Big Boss were strictly subordinate and commanding officer, respectively, with no familiar connection between them.
