* AstonishinglyAppropriateInterruption: In ''The Spy Who Shagged Me'', two {{Hurricane of Euphemism|s}} {{Overly Long Gag}}s cover a succession of people being distracted by Dr. Evil's rocket, and being [[CurseCutShort cut off just before they can remark]] that it looks like a giant-- Johnson! What about in ''Goldmember'' when they did the same gag with the satellite that looks like a pair of big-- Bazookas? And so on.

* PyrrhicVictory: In the first movie, when Austin catches Dr. Evil attempting to escape after Austin stopped the nuclear warhead, Dr. Evil attempts to impose this on Austin. He argues that free love and anything Austin stood up for in the 1960's is considered "evil", but Austin argues that they aren't and he's come to understand how much the world changed but can be similar motives adapted for the 1990's, saying "It's freedom, baby, Yeah!" Dr. Evil is still smug that even though Austin has caught him, Dr. Evil says "Freedom failed" and Austin would be forced to live with all that, [[DespairEventHorizon and not in a good way]]. [[spoiler:[[IHaveYourWife Luckily for Dr. Evil, Alotta Fagina arrives holding Vanessa hostage.]] This gives Dr. Evil a change to escape after a failed [[TheStarscream intervention by Number Two.]]]]

* TheDragon: In the second movie, Mini-Me hilariously fills this role, giving Austin a hell of a beating before the climactic showdown with Dr. Evil. Keep in mind that Mini-Me, played by Vern Troyer, is less than [[PintSizedPowerhouse three feet tall]].

* MissionCreep: Parodied in ''International Man of Mystery''. The defrosted Dr. Evil returning from TheSixties to TheNineties tries to launch into an old-fashioned spy supervillain plot only to be reminded that his organization in his absence had to CutLexLuthorACheck and branch into legitimate corporate enterprise so as to better serve evil of course.
