* RecycledSoundtrack: Several cues from ''Film/YouOnlyLiveTwice'' get re-used in this film. In particular, the theme for SPECTRE's rocket in the former film is re-used for the KillSat's attacks in this one, while the "Little Nellie" theme makes an appearance during the oil rig fight.

Added DiffLines:

* LeaningOnTheFourthWall: Bond's meeting with M seems to comment on Creator/SeanConnery's real-life absence between ''Film/YouOnlyLiveTwice'' and this film.
-->'''M:''' You've been on holiday, I understand. Relaxing, I hope.
-->'''Bond:''' Hardly relaxing but... most satisfying.

* AdaptedOut: The main villains of the book - Jack and Seraffimo Spang - are completely absent from the film.
* AdaptationDyeJob: Tiffany was blonde in the book, as opposed to a redhead in the film. Lampshaded when Bond asks, "Weren't you a blonde when I came in?"

Added DiffLines:

* TakeThat: Guy Hamilton didn't like big American cars and took particular delight in trashing them in the film's numerous car chase scenes.

* UnwantedAssistance: Case accidentally puts the real tape in the machine (after Bond had switched it out for the fake), and is caught trying to switch it back.

* ExecutiveMeddling: When the film aired on ABC the network had the scene where Lana Wood, as Plenty O'Toole, walked around wearing nothing but a flimsy pair of see through pink panties artificially altered to make it appear as though she were wearing a black bra with black panties - despite the fact that her backless purple satin dress clearly showed that she had no bra.

* EndOfAnAge:
** Due to endless litigation between the producers and Kevin [=McClory=], this would be the last Eon Bond film where Blofeld and SPECTRE would appear as BigBad[=/=]GreaterScopeVillain and NebulousEvilOrganisation respectively until the 2015 movie ''Film/{{Spectre}}''.
** It was also this for classic Bond, since Sean Connery only agreed to one additional movie with UA boss David Picker, and, minus [=McClory=]'s ''Never Say Never Again'', refused to deal with any part of the franchise ever again [[note]]or at least until the 2005 ''Film/FromRussiaWithLove'' video game, which bridged the gap between Creator/PierceBrosnan and Creator/DanielCraig. [[/note]] EON had to recast the role for the third time in a row, going with Roger Moore, who was considered originally.

* InNameOnly: Bond films have never been known for strict fidelity to the source material, but this movie takes it to a new level. Whatever changes the last six movies made to the corresponding books, they at least kept the names and general gimmicks of the BigBads. This one swaps out the novel's Spang brothers with Blofeld, who hadn't even been created when the former was published, and pretty much rewrites the entire plot to revolve around a KillSat.

Added DiffLines:

* HorribleJudgeOfCharacter: Blofeld's MadScientist, Professor Dr. Metz, rather stupidly believes that SPECTRE is dedicated to nuclear disarmament despite [[Film/{{Thunderball}} previous]] [[Film/OnHerMajestysSecretService films]] showing them as a terrorism-for-profit group.
