** The three licensed tracks used in the various trailers -- [[{{Music/Garbage}} "Not Your Kind of People"]], [[Music/MikeOldfield "Nuclear"]] and [[Music/NewOrder "Elegia"]] -- saw big sales spikes after the fact. "Nuclear" in particular became Music/MikeOldfield's first song to see widespread attention in the United States since ''Music/TubularBells'' in 1973 (discounting [[Music/FiveMilesOut "Family Man"]], which got CoveredUp by Music/DarylHallAndJohnOates in 1982), resulting in it receiving a tie-in picture disc release in the UK and Europe in 2016.

* DuelingGames: Rivalries were anticipated with the releases of ''Videogame/MadMax2015'' and ''VideoGame/{{Fallout 4}}'' that same year.

* DuelingGames: Rivalries were anticipated with the releases of ''Videogame/MadMax2015'' and ''VideoGame/{{Fallout 4}}'' that launched ''on the same year.day'', making this is a direct, literal example of two games competing for buyers.


* FanNickname:
** "Eliquid" for Eli, due to his strong resemblance to Liquid Snake. [[spoiler:Or just regular "Liquid", since that's who he is]].
** [[spoiler: Sahelanthropus]] has started to be called "Mobile Suit REX" for looking more like a humanoid than any other [[spoiler: Metal Gear]] thus far. Alternatives include [[spoiler: Sally]] or [[spoiler: Snufflelopagus]] due to how long the name is.
** [[spoiler:Big Medic]] has become one for Venom Snake.
** Due to the TwistEnding of the game, the massive amount of misdirection that Kojima brought up in order to cover up said twist, and the use of Midge Ure's cover of Music/DavidBowie's famous song in the game, fans have given Kojima the moniker of "[[TrollingCreator The Man Who Trolled The World]]".

Added DiffLines:

* HistoryRepeats: As it happens, there was [[VisualNovel/{{Snatcher}} another Kojima game]], originally released 27 years before this one, which was ''also'' missing a proper ending.


* DummiedOut: Modifying game files on the PC version shows that child soldiers were originally going to be able to be killed, with the player receiving a ''hefty'' Heroism penalty for it.

to:

* DummiedOut: Modifying DummiedOut:
** The Collector's Edition comes with a bonus Blu-ray Disc which feature footage from a mission not included in the final
game files on titled "Kingdom of the Flies". This mission, which would've been Episode 51 had it been included, would would have sent Snake to a sprawling ''Lord of the Flies''-esque island and explained what had happened to Eli after [[spoiler:he and The Third Child stole a repaired Sahelanthropus and escaped Mother Base with the other child soldiers.]]
** Additionally, players who have datamined the game have uncovered numerous unused content, such as a title card for a cut third chapter titled "Peace".
** There's also code for other previously unannounced [=DLCs=] such as a set of ''[=MGS3=]'' themed costumes (which include The Boss' sneaking suit and Eva's jumpsuit for female soldiers), as well as Miller and Ocelot costumes for D-Dog. The ''[=MGS3=]'' costumes eventually became available, but the D-Dog costume never made it the light of day.
** Co-Ops missions from ''Peace Walker'' were intended to make a return in ''The Phantom Pain'' according to early versions of the [=iDroid=] GUI seen in this [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p8FUq54XeiI video]]. While Co-Ops were not implemented for main missions, players can still assist each other in defending their [=FOBs=] from intruders.
** A [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=seCnZifeI7k gameplay demonstration]] from [=E3=] 2014 showed much more activity within Mother Base compared to the final game, with animals roaming around the base alongside soldiers (rather than being segregated to a separate conservation plant), other helicopters and vehicles besides the ones Snake uses to travel, soldiers engaging in target practices, Ocelot himself casually hanging around outside story events, and rival invasions occurring within the main Mother Base (as opposed to a separate FOB). Similarly, the [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Oxt23RgSHpY gamescom 2014 demo]] shows PF emblems that are impossible to use in the released version such as "Roughneck Raven" and "Stubborn Sheep".
** While the death of any child soldier will result in an instant mission failure, this restriction was apparently not planned to be implemented at first. Killing child soldiers can be enabled in
the PC version shows through modding, which reveals that child soldiers were originally going to be able to be killed, with the player receiving a ''hefty'' Heroism original penalty for it.killing one was a deduction of 500 heroism points.

* MultipleLanguagesSameVoiceActor: Stefanie Joosten voices Quiet in both English ''and'' Japanese.


* CreatorKiller: This game marked the end of Konami's AAA game development, with new games since then consisting of ''VideoGame/ProEvolutionSoccer'' and the occasional smaller games like ''VideoGame/SuperBombermanR''. Thus far, there is no sign of Konami returning to productions on the scale of ''MGS''.

* WordOfSaintPaul: Quiet's voice actress, Stefanie Joosten, personally [[{{Jossed}} disproved]] the "Chico is Quiet" theory. [[spoiler: This is confirmed in-game when it is revealed that Quiet is dressed the way she is because of her getting set on fire by Ishmael and Ahab in the prologue.]]

* DescendedCreator: There's a super-powerful unit called Hideo that you can get by beating a mission in ''Ground Zeroes'', transferring your save data to ''Phantom Pain'', and completing it's sequel mission. As one can guess, it's Hideo Kojima himself, digitized, and made a MasterOfAll.

** In March 2015, Konami underwent an inexplicable change in brand management policy, with all indications pointing to the higher-ups becoming frustrated with their published games becoming more associated with the people and studios that created them, especially Creator/HideoKojima, than the Konami brand. As a result, they started to remove all mention of studio and director names from advertising and the front of game boxes.[[note]]Including [[OrwellianEditor games already released]].[[/note]] Kojima Productions was affected the most by this change. Naturally, this clashed ''violently'' with Kojima's AuteurLicense, which led to a fallout. Kojima left Konami a month after the game was released and Kojima Productions was disbanded entirely and renamed into a generic "Konami" studio. Konami stated that they would continue to develop ''Metal Gear'' games without the involvement of Kojima.
