* {{Tuckerization}}: This film marks the first appearance of the character Major Boothroyd (later played by Desmond Llewellyn and known simply as "Q"), based on fan and gun expert Geoffrey Boothroyd who informed Fleming the .25 Beretta 418 he had James Bond using was a wimpy ladies' pistol. (This also formed the basis for Bond's forced gun upgrade in the book and this movie.) The real-life Geoffrey Boothroyd appears in a vintage featurette on the ''Dr. No'' DVD and Blu-ray, in which he demonstrates the relative stopping powers of the two Bond guns, plus his own favorite, a Ruger .44 Magnum.

* RaceAgainstTheClock:
** Leiter tells Bond the investigation has to go ahead before the next space programme launch, but it's never a major factor in the plot other than getting Bond and Quarrel to Crab Key.
** Bond tells Leiter that if he's not back in 12 hours, to send reinforcements. However, Bond is gone considerably longer than 12 hours, but there is no sign of such reinforcements arriving. (A scene in which Dr. No forced Bond to radio Leiter and call off the reinforcements ended up on the cutting room floor.)

''Dr. No'' is the first ''Film/JamesBond'' film, starring Creator/SeanConnery. After a British agent and his secretary are murdered in Jamaica and their files stolen, Bond is sent to investigate. As the first film of the series, it lacked many of the traits that would become iconic of the franchise but nonetheless set the groundwork.

* {{Expy}}: Doctor No is a somewhat scaled back FuManchu. Oddly, resembling the Devil Doctor from his earliest appearances when he was just a high ranking member of the Si-Fan rather than its leader.

* YellowPeril: Dr. No, though he's only half-Chinese. Fleming intended him as a homage to FuManchu.
