** Raiden working for a company called Maverick is amusing when you consider the similarity people have noted between the ''Metal Gear'' and ''VideoGame/MegaManX'' series in how both use very similar AnimalThemeNaming with their boss enemies. The rogue robots you fight in ''Mega Man X'' are also called Mavericks.

** The mastiff enemies. They have a slow wind up for their attacks, but they're incredibly agile which causes the camera to go berserk far more often than with any other enemy and can also easily leave Raiden vulnerable. Especially when they dropkick Raiden, which has little warning and is the only move of theirs you can't outrun with Ninja Run. And you're often facing several at a time.

** Even on [[Wiki/TVTropes This Very Wiki]], many people are enamored with Samuel Rodrigues. Yes, he is ''much'' preferable to the likes of Monsoon, Sundowner, or Armstrong, but he is by no means good. He too, assaulted N'mani and participated in his capture and murder, and participated in the plot to cut brains out of children and turn them into war cyborgs, and notably seems to enjoy carving people into bits, even ''before'' joining Desperado--which was when he was out for justice.

GIVE WAR A CHANCE!"), rather [[http://img4.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20120605221300/metalgear/images/6/61/428493_399701390073610_659136071_n.jpg goofy face]] and [[ChewingTheScenery ridicuously hammy voice-acting]].

** Sam gives Vamp a run for his money in the "aggressively flirting with Raiden" category. Literally every one of his BossBanter lines, taken out of context, sounds like they're making a porno.

** {{Mooks}} with rocket-propelled grenades. Not so bad on their own, but in groups they will rarely give you a second to rest, especially in wide-open areas. It's especially bad on higher difficulties with little to no health packs, making you move faster than your brain can comprehend just to avoid them.

** There are times that the player can cut a soldier's arms but the enemy will still try to kill him in his state. While this is PlayedForLaughs, we later learn that they have nanomachines that suppress their fear meaning that they were actually in panic and wanted to escape.

** Monsoon uses extremely fast multi-hit combos, from multiple directions, that will regularly daze Raiden and leave you open for an additional hit if they connect. He can also use smoke grenades that make you unable to lock onto him, and become invulnerable to any attacks other than a counter-attack parry or EM grenade for long periods of time.
** The FinalBoss can create flame walls that trap you into a small area of the combat arena, throw debris that require you to line up a perfect Blade Mode strike in 2-3 seconds multiple times in a row, regenerate health, and even ''knock your weapon out of your hand''.
*** The ''Jetstream Sam'' DLC buffs him so the fight opens up with helicopters crashing into the ground and leaving a trail of homing flames. The Boss now has charges that can chase you even while you're in midair and which he can repeat up to 7 passes on Revengeance, all of which you need to dodge perfectly to avoid getting hit, as well as a plethora of other new attacks. It is made even harder when you realize that Sam has poorer defense than Raiden and attempting cheese the fight by hit and runs or using midair attacks will result in getting sent flying. If you're unlucky, Sam can get stuck in a six hit headbutt combo.

** [[spoiler:The Bladewolf DLC could be considered this for similar reasons. It's the opposite for Bladewolf--he gets more characterization than ever. Khamsin, however, is an entire Wind of Destruction and the single one that, while definitely a huge asshole, is not "evil" as such by any stretch. Given the game's set of characters that futilely try to tell Raiden that he's the same as them, Khamsin could perhaps have been the one to do it.]]

** Bladewolf needs plenty of hugs after being fooled into thinking that he'll achieve freedom (see his DLC episode for more details) and to be forced to work for Desperado Enforcement to avoid having its memory erased. Plus he's really a kind dog (provided that you don't piss him off) who's very loyal to Raiden after their first encounter.

** While any of the bosses in the game are all extremely awesome, special credit goes to the FinalBoss, [[spoiler:Senator Armstrong, who first fights you in a block-sized Metal Gear before absolutely thrashing Raiden in a fight, firmly solidifying his status as a complete and total {{Badass}}. It takes Sam's sword and Wolf getting smashed by Armstrong for Raiden to even stand a chance. Moral support is also available thanks to [[SugarWiki/AwesomeMusic "It Has To Be This Way"]] and the encouragement from all of Raiden's codec comrades]].
