After the release of Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty (2001), Hideo Kojima said that he would not direct this game. He wanted a member of his team at Konami to replace him, but none of them wanted to, so he was forced to change his mind and direct after all.
Ocelot's tricks with his dual revolvers, were performed by a stuntman and recorded through motion capture.
In an interview, Harry Gregson-Williams jokingly said that he might return to compose this game's music "if it's set in the Amazon". At the time, Hideo Kojima actually was planning to set it in the jungle. Kojima decided to use this as a way to get Gregson-Williams to return; he told him that what he said had been the inspiration for the game's setting. He didn't tell Gregson-Williams the truth until the music was nearly finished.
The character of "The End" (as well as the concept of The Boss being Naked Snake's mentor) was based on a scrapped member of Dead Cell from Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty called Old Boy (sometimes referred as Oldman). Old Boy (according to the MGS2 gameplan) was a 100-year old former Nazi general who wielded a Panzerfaust as his weapon of choice and was also a mentor to several soldiers, including Big Boss himself. His character was written out of the Metal Gear Solid 2 script because they could not find a way to fit it into the story.
The character of Raikov is a parody of Raiden from MGS2. There are numerous jokes made to the poor audience reaction as well as the androgynous look and feel of the character. At one point of the game, Snake's balls are grabbed by Volgin while disguised as Raikov; a reference to a similar scene involving Raiden and the US President in the previous game.
One of Hideo Kojima's colleagues told him about and advised him to listen to stellastarr*, but Kojima heard "Starsailor". He liked the song "Way To Fall" and chose it as an ending theme.
The codename of the character "Major Tom" is a reference to the 1969 song "Space Oddity" by David Bowie, which is about an astronaut called Major Tom. In the game, Major Tom is even asked "Can you hear me, Major Tom?" This phrase is part of the song's lyrics. Major Tom explains later in the game that his codename was taken from the movie The Great Escape. In the movie the prisoners had three names for the three tunnels they built, Tom, Dick and Harry. Major Tom explains that he mistakenly identified the tunnel named Tom as the one the prisoners escaped from. Tom and Dick were the tunnels that were discovered by the Nazis. Instead of asking Snake to call him Major Harry, he just shrugs it off and changes his codename back to Major Zero.
Johnny Sasaki's (the inept jail guard from the original Metal Gear Solid) grandfather appears in the game as the guard assigned to watch Naked Snake's cell during his capture. He wears a balaclava with the letter "J" written over it.
The character of Naked Snake in the game was designed after Sean Connery's portrayal of James Bond. This was done, since in Metal Gear 2: Solid Snake, the character design of Big Boss himself was also originally modeled after the older Sean Connery.

There are many magazines hidden throughout the game. Most of them are videogame-related but there is a Playboy hidden in the game.
If you call Para-Medic(SAVE) in the cave, you will eventually get on the topic of the 007 film "From Russia With Love." You will be interrupted by Major Tom, who is evidently a big fan of the film. He'll even suggest a few hilarious Bond-esque gadgets to Naked Snake.
When the torture scene was filmed, the motion capture actor playing Snake had to take breaks frequently because his shoulders hurt and could have dislocated because of the strain of holding them up at an uncomfortable position for so long.
The first release of MGS3: Snake Eater was the final MGS installment to feature the infamous "overhead camera angle" from the original MGS. A re-make of this installment "Metal Gear Solid 3: Subsistence" featured the very first "free rotating camera angle" in the MGS series and each installment since then has included this feature. The player can alternate between the two angle, by pushing R3.
In the mini-game "Snake vs. Monkey", Snake asks Colonel Campbell to ask "Gabe" or "Sam" to carry out his assignment. This is a reference to Gabe Logan, the main character of Syphon Filter (1999), and Sam Fisher, the main character of Splinter Cell (2002).
The date of the "Virtuous Mission", 24 August 1964, was Hideo Kojima's first birthday. It was originally 24 August 1963 (his exact birth date), but was moved up a year because he wanted the 22 November 1963 assassination of President John F. Kennedy to factor into the story.

Motion capture was used extensively in producing the movie scenes. This technique allows the movements of real actors to be recorded and applied to computer models. The previous game also used this technique.
In late 2002, Hideo Kojima and other members of the staff planned to visit the International Spy Museum in Washington, DC for research purposes. They ended up canceling the trip because of the Beltway sniper attacks.
When the torture scene was filmed, A possible "Yes" or "No" sort of mini game was going to be incorporated into the game, but was dropped based on its already graphic content.
Kurt Russell was asked to voice Snake but turned the offer down.
Volgin's chant when he first meets Snake ("Kuwabara, kuwabara") is an old chant believed to help ward off thunderstorms.
The Kerotan frogs in the game are based on little frog figures that are sold in Japan.
In military circles, the term "Snake Eater" is sometimes used to refer to special operations personnel; referencing the fact that these troops are taught how to trap, prepare and eat local fauna (including snakes) as part of their specialized training. In the game, Snake/Big Boss is recruited from US Army Special Forces for the Virtuous Mission, making him one of these personnel.
When Snake talks with Director Granin in his office, the theme playing on the radio is the Metal Gear Solid theme. Also, the specifications he shows to Snake are of Metal Gear REX from Metal Gear Solid (1998). There are also figurines of Metal Gear REX, Metal Gear RAY from Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty (2001) and Jehuty from Zone of the Enders (2001) visible in the background, along with a photograph of Granin with his American friend (the grandfather of Hal Emmerich, Metal Gear REX's chief engineer in the original Metal Gear Solid).
Various Metal Gear info circulating the web, reads that Naked Snake (aka Big Boss) was born in 1936; making him roughly 28 years of age at the time of Operation Snake Eater.
Hideo Kojima had planned to release Metal Gear Solid 3 for PlayStation 3 but couldn't wait another 2 years. Hence mgs3 was released in 2004.
At the very beginning of the game, the date of which "The Virtuous Mission" was initiated is August 24, 1964 - the day Hideo Kojima turned one year old.
The character of The Boss was modeled after actress Charlotte Rampling.
"The Fury" voiced by Richard Doyle, played Kelly Gains's father in 8 episodes of the popular TV show "Cheers"
The medal awarded to Snake at the end of the game is the Distinguished Service Cross. The Distinguished Service Cross is awarded to a person who, while serving in any capacity with the Army, distinguishes himself or herself by extraordinary heroism not justifying the award of a Medal of Honor; while engaged in an action against an enemy of the United States; and/or while engaged in military operations involving conflict with an opposing/foreign force. The act or acts of heroism must have been so notable and have involved risk of life so extraordinary as to set the individual apart from his or her comrades. The main difference between this award and a MoH is the number of witnesses required to verify the incident; a MoH requires statements from 7 witnesses, a DSC only 3, in this case Para-Medic, Major Zero, and Sigint.
Hideo Kojima originally considered either David Bowie's "Space Oddity" or "Ashes to Ashes" to play over the end credits when the space race between The U.S. and The Soviets was a more prominent aspect in the story. Kojima is also known to be a big Bowie fan which explains his choices.
