The game's instruction manual features a fictional document outlining Snake's mission to the reader. The document was actually based on a similar mission sheet featured in the J.C Pollock novel Crossfire. Moreover, other aspects of the game (such as the romantic relationship between an American solder and a Czech skater) were also based on aspects in Pollock's book. J.C Pollock is reportedly one of Hideo Kojima's favorite authors. See more
After the closing credits, there's an additional scene where Snake and Holly deliver the MSX cartridge to Campbell. The scene shows the MSX start-up screen with 01k VRAM (Kio Marv spelled backwards) written under the logo. See more
