* BrokenBase[=/=]ContestedSequel: Oh dear.
* HilariousInHindsight: The game's title is pretty nonsensical in the context of the game's plot. Snake's Revenge? What does Snake want revenge for? It's Big Boss who wants revenge. But then ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolid3SnakeEater'' came along and revealed that not only Snake is a clone of Big Boss, but Big Boss' original codename was actually Snake as well. It also features Big Boss/Snake using a knife, something that had only happened in this installment.
** And now comes ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolidVThePhantomPain'', which is about Snake (Big Boss) getting Revenge on Cipher for sabotaging the development of Metal Gear Zeke and destroying his headquarters Mother Base. To top off, Big Boss becomes a partial cyborg in this one, having his left arm amputated and replaced with a prosthetic.
* {{Narm}}: It falls somewhere between ReverseFunnyAneurysm and CrowningMomentOfAwesome, but the final boss is Big Boss!... who, upon defeat, [[NotEvenHuman transforms into an invincible giant purple robot]] and chases Snake down the halls [[IncendiaryExponent breathing fire]]. Anything we could put here would completely fail to describe how this actually feels to play.
** Nick's death is a fairly dramatic moment, but it's spoiled by miscolouring one pixel on his heaving back. As a result, instead of appearing to pant out his last words, he appears to have a long, firm sausage-shaped object on his back that jiggles up and down like a wagged finger.
