You may have to but it's not explicitly required.

You can hit some animals in a cave, but only if you choose to. It is more ideal to run from them instead.

Not in a literal sense, but the player character has the codename of Solid Snake.

In some conversations, the main character is told information by his radio team contradicting information he has gathered himself.

It's briefly mentioned that a character went through a period of heavy drinking.

Sniper Wolf is dependent on diazapam.

The player character smuggles a pack of cigarettes prior to the start of the mission. These can be equipped in the secondary slot and are described as "hazardous to your health." Once equipped, they start draining the player character's health, but the smoke from the cigarettes can be used to reveal laser trip wires in certain locations.

There are two sequences where Snake is strapped into a device that electrocutes him.

In the final boss battle a character is crushed, but their head is not visibly squashed.

There is a blast furnace that the player has to visit at one point during the game, and there are narrow ledges with machinery that the player character has to sidle across. If the player is not careful, the machinery running along the ledges will push the player character off, making them fall into a vat of molten metal where they are quickly burned alive.

In some parts of the game, you have to manage an oxygen meter. When the meter runs out, your life will start to deplete.

The FOXDIE deaths might appear similar to seizures. Also, the cyborg ninja experiences seizures due to his enhancements malfunctioning.

Yes. Only mentioned, but it is an important reveal when a side character learns who their actual parent is.

The deaths of a side characters’ parents are also discussed.

There are some personnel left in the base captured by the terrorists, but were there voluntarily before being held hostage.

An ally of the player character gets mind-controlled by one of the major bosses in the game, turning her gun on the player character until she's knocked unconscious before the boss fight begins proper. When that boss is low on health, he re-possesses your ally and attempts to make her commit suicide by gunshot.

A minor character guard has bowel problems, and in one sequence is seen running to the bathroom with sounds of stomach distress.

Late into the game there is a torture sequence where the player has to mash a button to resist, or press a different button once to submit to the torturer; who then kills an ally of yours before the final escape should they submit. Depending on your actions here you will get a different New Game Plus reward, but failing to endure or submit to the torture will result in a Game Over that cannot be continued from, meaning you have to load your previous save.

Frequently throughout the game the player has to crawl through ventilation shafts, forcing the camera into first-person view.

In some scenes, to emphasize shock, there are quick cuts made by the camera with accompanying flashing lights. This happens most notably before entering the lab for the first time.

Though the characters are technically speaking to Snake, they issue commands to the player such as what controller buttons to press and where to place your controller. In the Psycho Mantis boss fight, the fourth wall is broken as he breaks down how you as the player play the game and announces other games you have played.

Only incidentally. There is mention of an entirely off screen character named Dr. Clark who's identity is unknown by the characters who wrongly guess that she is a man.

Meryl, but it’s less about the characters objectifying her than it is about the game’s writing itself generally being less than stellar in how women are portrayed and presented.

A naked man's blurred out buttocks are seen, but some versions of the game add briefs onto him instead.

While not a car, one of the bosses has you fighting a tank, which can run you over if you get too close.

There is blood on the ground where the female sidekick was shot, and Sniper Wolf has blood under her body after you fight her.

At a few points in the game, including the start, there are bodies of water the player character can swim through. If the character's head is submerged, an O2 meter will be shown below the character's main health. If the O2 meter becomes emptied the player character's health meter will start draining rapidly until the character resurfaces or dies, resulting in a very graphic drowning animation.
