** Overlaps with LeaveTheCameraRunning in the first film. Dr. Evil and his minions share a bout of maniacal laughter... and then instead of cutting away at its peak, the camera keeps rolling as it slowly and awkwardly peters out.

* OohMeAccentsSlipping: There's a point during the [[OverlyLongGag overly long evil laughing scene]] in the first film where Mike Myers reverts to his normal voice.
** In the second film, when Austin asks Mustafa "Where is Dr Evil hiding?", you can clearly hear Mike Myers' own voice.

* One '''''meeeeeeeee'''''-llion dollar ransom. MemeticMutation as well.
** This was so ubiquitous, even ''King Hussein of Jordan'' joked around with it.
* Inverted in the second film: Dr. Evil's 1969 ransom of one hundred billion dollars doesn't even exist yet.

* GenreSavvy: Scott Evil, who loves mocking his father's unoriginal plans in the first two movies. In the third, he just gives up altogether and pretends to support his father's plan (even though he's still making fun of it).
** And later, Austin's father.

* MetaGuy: Scott is [[StraightMan the only one]] who seems to see through Dr. Evil's ridiculous plans and is [[GenreSavvy well-aware]] they won't work.

* OnlySaneMan: Scott Evil, to an extent. Number Two is as equally aware of Dr. Evil's GenreBlindness, but unlike Scott, he doesn't bother trying to stop him.

* IntimateArtistry: Austin was flirting with Vanessa from the very instant that he awoke from his cryogenic freezing, but he only seemed to progress from purely-physical attraction to an emotional connection when she briefly posed for photographs for him when they were on a surveillance mission. After saying how beautiful she was he took her out for a night on the town, where she first began to return his affections.

** Given the silliness of the first film, Austin's speech to Dr. Evil about "if we'd known the consequences of our actions we'd have done things differently" referring to the Free Love era is actually straightforward and serious (and reflects real-world opinions of those who lived through the era).
