* Mixed with CrowningMusicOfAwesome, the background music while you fight Peace Walker is also another one that really pumps you and fills you with determination to win the freaking battle. Though you'd better have some friends to do it, or [[MarathonBoss it'll take a good half-hour to beat]].

** And to make it even better, the mission ends with things getting tight for Snake, up 'til when the Sandinistas and MSF arrive, gunning down all the enemies in one of the best BigDamnHeroes moments in the whole series. Cue Amanda finally being recognized as "Comandante", and after she hugs Big Boss, everyone starts cheering for him. It's ''such'' a moment of glory.* Big Boss surviving sustained marathons of electric cattle prod shock therapy at the hands of an inept civilian torturer, who is more likely to fry him to death out of jealousy and spite than extract the confession she wants out of him.

Added DiffLines:

* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rmGwLyvU35Y&t=19s This cutscene]] reminds us how superior Snake's CQC is when he disarms not one, not three, but ''nine'' enemy soldiers armed with M16's in quick, fluid motion with his bare hands.


** In battles with the Metal Gears of previous games, being stepped on was usually immediately fatal. In Peace Walker, it instead triggers a QTE prompt which results in Snake [[CharlesAtlasSuperpower bench pressing]] the mech when it attempts to stomp him and throwing it off balance. In hindsight, Big Boss' DNA does seem quite valuable.

* There are QTE prompts when fighting Cocoon, Peace Walker and Zeke which result in Snake [[CharlesAtlasSuperpower bench pressing]] the mech when it attempts to stop him and throwing it off balance. Understandably, the AI Pods and [[spoiler:Paz]] freak out.



** In hindsight, Big Boss' DNA does seem quite valuable considering he can stop five hundred tonnes of mech from reducing him to paste.

** The real kicker is going outside at the start, even though Miller says it's suicide, and getting on the mounted machine gun. ''YOU CAN'T GET HIT USING IT''. Time to go {{Rambo}}.

Added DiffLines:

** The awe Amanda expresses upon learning the man before her is "the great cacique" further establishes how much of a legend Snake has made himself even before adopting his title "Big Boss".

* The QTE at the end of Infiltrate the Underground Base. The prompts are so fast it's borderline impossible to avoid losing (and continuing to the next mission), but Big Boss' CQC FoeTossingCharge of eight assault-rifle wielding Peace Sentinel goons. (not to mention stealing Strangelove's ID card to escape later upon completion) is totally worth it.
