* OOCIsSeriousBusiness: After Felicity dies in the second movie, Austin chases down with the intention to kill him. As in, not protect himself as a international man of mystery, but hunt down Dr. Evil with the intention to murder him. Dr. Evil only saves himself by mentioning that Austin could undo Felicity's death by using time travel.

* AffablyEvil: Dr. Evil

to:

* AffablyEvil: Dr. EvilEvil is rather eccentric for being a supposed evil mastermind, frequently going off on long tangents or doing things that make no sense within the context of a conversation.



* AnAesop: In one of the very few moments in the series played entirely serious, Dr. Evil taunts that the values of the hippies and swingers Austin associated with in the sixties, and the lifestyle they embraced (promiscuity, partying, drug use), are now considered evil and amoral in the nineties, trying to convince Austin they're NotSoDifferent. Austin responds thusly:
-->'''Austin:''' No, man, what we swingers were rebelling against were uptight squares like you, whose bag was money and world domination. We were innocent, man. If we'd known the consequences of our sexual liberation, we would have done things differently, but the spirit would have remained the same. It's freedom, baby, yeah. \\

to:

%%* ATeamFiring* ATeamFiring: Zigzagged. Austin himself is rather guilty of it, firing in completely random directions and somehow managing to hit almost nothing. Other times, Austin's so accurate that it's a wonder anyone ever gets near him.



* OverlyLongScream:

to:

* OverlyLongScream:OverlyLongScream: Parodied. A {{Mook}} lets off a few loud BigNo screams, one after another, as a steamroller is about to crush him. This is despite the fact that he's several yards away from the steamroller, which is going so slowly that the mook could just walk to escape it.

-->'''Austin''': Wait a tick. Basil, if I travel back to 1969 and I was frozen in 1967, presumably, I could go back and visit my frozen self. But, if I'm still frozen in 1967, how could I have been unthawed in the '90s and traveled back to- (''[[MindScrew Goes cross-eyed in confusion]]'') Oh, no, I've gone cross-eyed.\\

When Dr. Evil [[HumanPopsicle cryogenically freezes himself]] and launches into space, Austin (believing himself the only one capable of battling this menace) has himself frozen as well to await the day that Dr. Evil returns. When they are duly unthawed, thirty years later, both characters find themselves woefully outdated: Austin is [[DiscoDan a walking punchline]] from the swinging sixties, while Dr. Evil finds his evil syndicate is completely overshadowed by [[MegaCorp Starbucks]].

** In ''Goldmember'', Austin uses a prominently placed [=MacBook=]. Also, contrasting his Jaguar that was renamed "Shaguar" from the beginning, his new VW Beetle sports its actual VW logo on the grill, and the camera lingers on it for a while when the car is introduced.

* PlayingWithATrope: Arguably one of the entire purposes of the series, as it parodies, spins, exaggerates, lampshades, and puts an odd twist on everything from random dance scenes to celebrity cameos to under-the-credits scenes.
