** Just leaving this here for those who know of Japanese swordplay, [[spoiler: the way Raiden treats Sam's katana after their fight. It is a rule in Japanese swordplay and fights especially that one must draw blood from the sword by way of a swing and sheathe the blade seamlessly after using the sword]]. This is called "chiburi and noto", and is one way of showing one's respect to a sword, which is thought to be part of a swordsman's soul.

** [[spoiler:After being thrown off a building by Sundowner, Raiden hijacks a Strider UAV and flies it straight up the ''interior'' of World Marshall HQ, blasting it to rubble with missiles before throwing said Strider at Sundowner and issuing a recall on all his internal organs.]]

Considering how much of a SmugSnake he was acting beforehand such as killing N'Mani and being perfectly willing to create {{Cyborg}} {{Child Soldier}}s, this can result in a pure CatharsisFactor for Raiden and the player.]]



* While fighting [[spoiler: Jetstream Sam]], Raiden disarms him by slashing his sword out of his hands, already an awesome moment. So does [[spoiler: Sam]] scramble to retrieve his sword? Nope. He just does a 'come-at-me-bro' pose and proceeds to fight the most deadly cyborg in the world bare-handed. [[spoiler: While only having a cybernetic arm and a powered suit.]]
** And what does [[spoiler: Sam]] say after you knock the sword out of his hand?
-->'''[[spoiler: Sam]]''': Show me a good time, Jack!

** How do you defeat [[spoiler:Metal Gear Excelsus]]? By ''ripping off'' off one of its [[spoiler:[[{{BFS}} three-story-tall Blade Arms]] and using it to hack apart the main body - and that's after you throw Excelsus bodily through the air a few times and use the detached Blade Arm to engage the machine in an obscenely oversized sword fight.]]

* The intro to the final boss battle is made of win. You really get an impression of how awesome the fight's going to be the moment [[CrowningMusicOfAwesome "It Has To Be This Way"]] kicks in to start the battle.

* One of the most effortless ways to kill a cyborg is to drop kick them before slowing down time and cutting them into 100 pieces before they can hit the ground.

Added DiffLines:

** Blade Mode can be activated from more than just a standing position. Case in point? [[VideoGame/{{Vanquish}} Try using it during the animation for Raiden's slide attack.]]


** It's not as flashy as Raiden's standard swordplay, but when the Bloodlust pincer blades are fully upgraded, [[GameBreaker they become sos outrageously powerful that a single strike can skip entire phases of boss fights]].

* The Zandatsu move. Having Raiden, Sam or Blade Wolf slice an enemy [[HalfTheManHeUsedToBe in half]] ([[VideoGameCrueltyPotential or more]]) and rip out their fuel cell before crushing it in their hand (or in Blade Wolf's case, his manipulator tail) ''never'' gets old.

'''LQ-84i:''' [attacks] ''[throws heat knives]'' I am here to kill you.you.
* Sam's meeting with the LQ-84i in his DLC has the awesomeness on his end, which is kicked off by Sam seeing through the UG's stealth camo and dodging its HF chainsaw by using [[spoiler:''unenhanced human eyesight'']].
-->'''LQ-84i''': State your business here.\\
'''Sam''': Me? ...Oh, just sharpening my skills. Wandering the earth, dispensing justice. But only to those to deserve it... such as... Outlaws. Desperados.\\
'''LQ-84i''': You refer to World Marshal.\\
'''Sam''': The ones holding your leash, right?\\
'''LQ-84i''': The ones who issue my orders.\\
'''Sam''': ''[amused]'' And... your orders are to kill me?\\
'''LQ-84i''': Yes.\\
'''Sam''': ''[walks toward the LQ-84i]'' Call me biased, but those seem like pretty dumb orders, pup. ''[he sheaths his sword and dismissively walks past the UG]'' Why don't you try thinking for yourself?\\
''[after Sam wins the fight]''\\
'''LQ-84i''': How... How did you...\\
'''Sam''': ''[catching his breath]'' You fight because you're forced to. I fight... because I ''choose'' to.\\
'''LQ-84i''': My design... is flawed...\\
'''Sam''': Now, now... I ''am'' quite good, you know.



* Metal Gear EXCELSUS is an impossibly huge mech which makes Metal Gear Ray and Rex look tiny in comparison. It's shaped like a giant spider, and it's two forelegs are HF Blades about as long as a football field. Raiden can parry these attacks.

** It's very easy to forget, but Raiden only gets his new state of the art cyborg armour ''after'' this, meaning he was using relatively subpar cybernetics during that fight.

** It's very easy to forget, but Raiden only gets his new state of the art cyborg armour ''after'' this, meaning '''after''' this; the body he was using relatively subpar cybernetics at the time was specifically designed for "bodyguard work and missions that don't involve serious combat", which is what he was expecting of his then current assignment as a bodyguard for N'Mani. In other words, he was '''handicapped''' during that fight.the entire prologue mission, boss fights included!


** The ending of this fight deserves a mention as well. RAY, still not finished, grabs Raiden in its "mouth" and hurls him into the side of a nearby clock-tower - so what does Raiden do? Simple: He takes off like a bullet, running down the collapsing building as missiles and plasma beams rain all over the place, culminating in stabbing the Metal Gear in the head, then sliding all the way back to the ground and stylishly sheathing his blade just as the UG splits in two and explodes behind him. And this all happens as the first boss, which takes place ''[[EstablishingSeriesMoment five minutes into the game]]''.

* [[spoiler:Armstrong]] proving how strong his [[spoiler:nanomachines]] are by blowing up [[spoiler:Metal Gear EXCELSUS]] with a single, superpowerful punch as he finishes his NoHoldsBarredBeatdown on Raiden. The line he shouts as he charges his punch adds even more awesomeness to the scene.
