** Liquid desired to murder Big Boss in revenge for either allegedly being knowingly given the inferior genes by Big Boss or being told by Big Boss repeatedly that he was inferior, and hated Snake partially for stealing that chance. Liquid's voice actor, Creator/CamClarke, would later voice [[Disney/TheLionKing a character]] who attempts to avenge his father after discovering that he was murdered by his uncle in ''VideoGame/KingdomHeartsII''.


* AccidentalInnuendo: In the Spanish translation of the game, Gray Fox's banter "that's good, Snake! Hurry up and catch me!" was translated as "¡Bien hecho Snake! ¡Snake date prisa y cogeme!". While "cogeme" means "catch me", the word has been used as slang for "fuck me" in countries like Argentina, meaning that one could interpret the translation as Gray Fox asking Snake to [[FoeYay have sex with him]].

** When Psycho Mantis reads your memory card in ''The Twin Snakes'', one of the games he can read is ''VideoGame/SuperSmashBrosMelee''. Snake would show up in [[VideoGame/SuperSmashBrosBrawl the third game]] four years later.

** The Hind D is pretty tough since you get a limited window to hit it and the final attack can take a good chunk of your health away, or even one-hit KO you if on a higher difficulty. Hope you didn't waste your rations beforehand. Also, you are supposed keep track of the Hind by listening for it with stereo speakers on the television, but god help you if your TV only outputs mono audio.

** Cyborg Ninja is the first of Snake's allies to die [[spoiler:onscreen]], and his Japanese voice actor Creator/KanetoShiozawa was the first of the main cast to die in real life at only 46.

** The Psycho Mantis fight was groundbreaking and full of HolyShitQuotient at the time, but most new players nowadays don't get what was so mindblowing about it.

** If you call Master Miller on the Codec during the interludes between your torture sessions, he'll appeal to your HeroicResolve and tell you that you are no ordinary soldier and he doesn't want you to crack or tell Ocelot anything. [[spoiler: The revelation that he was really a disguised Liquid Snake means that he was ''really'' just hoping you'll give Ocelot an excuse to torture you to your limit, and is actually an example of Liquids' own sadism and petty grudge against Snake.]]

** Liquid's mention about Big Boss being in a coma, when explaining the history of the Les Enfants Terribles project, was also a Woolseyism. Originally, he simply stated that Big Boss was sterile. Like Mei Ling's use of Western quotes, this was retained in ''The Twin Snakes''.

* BrokenBase: Worthy and improved remake or insult to a masterpiece? Its exclusion from the ''HD Collection'' caused these debates to flare up again over whether Kojima was in the right or not to exclude at least ''some iteration'' of the original game (though the [=PS3=]-exclusive ''Legacy Collection'', which included the original, quieted the debate for some).

* BrokenBase: Worthy and improved remake or insult to a masterpiece? Its exclusion from Those who like it like some of the ''HD Collection'' caused these debates to flare up again over whether Kojima was improvements featured in the right or not to exclude at least ''some iteration'' of re-dubbed script, the original game (though redone voice acting, and Creator/RobPaulsen providing the [=PS3=]-exclusive ''Legacy Collection'', which included voice of Gray Fox. Detractors dislike the original, quieted gameplay changes and the debate for some).cutscene being [[CutscenePowerToTheMax really over the top]]. The fact that it hasn't been re-released only adds more fuel to the fire.


* BetterThanCanon: The re-dubbed script has some improvements. Snake is more expressive and dialed down some of the gruffness as with later games, Mei Ling's somewhat forced accent is removed and she sounds much more natural and youthful, Gray Fox voiced by ''Creator/RobPaulsen'' is more menacing lacking the raspy voice, and most characters sound more professional in the intervening years since the original.
