* AdaptationalModesty: Occurs during the iconic scene where Honey Ryder comes up out of the sea and walks up the beach. As generations of short-changed Bond fans have pointed out, in [[Literature/DrNo the novel]], Honey Ryder is naked when she emerges from the ocean. In the film, Ursula Andress wore a white bikini that has become associated with her character and the idea of the Bond girl as a symbol of glamor, sophistication, sex appeal, and danger.

* JustBetweenYouAndMe: A not too blatant example, since the US had worked out before the events of the film that their rockets were being toppled; they just didn't know who the culprit was, and Bond works out by himself that Dr. No is responsible. However, Dr. No also freely gives away the existence of SPECTRE, who Bond and, presumably, MI6 had been totally ignorant of until that point. In fairness, he only told him because he was trying to recruit him, and Russia and China definitely know because they keep doing business with them (No is on a mission for SPECTRE, but it is strongly implied that they were hired by Red China; No even has an army of Chinese henchmen), so its not so bad if half the world knows anyway.

* ArtisticLicenceNuclearPhysics: A lesser example of this trope, since the overloading of Dr. No's reactor doesn't produce a ''nuclear'' explosion (which Bond and Honey would never have had a prayer of surviving in a speedboat), but it does produce a big enough explosion to total No's complex and the surrounding area, something that wouldn't happen with even the most catastrophic meltdown.



* BondVillainStupidity: Compared to a lot of later villains in the series, Dr. No isn't actually too bad in this regard. The only major error that he makes -- though it does prove to be the one which ultimately leads to his defeat -- is not having Bond killed the instant it became apparent that he didn't have the slightest interest in defecting to SPECTRE.



* NoMrBondIExpectYouToDine: The {{Trope Maker|s}}, to be [[TropeCodifier codified]] in ''Film/{{Goldfinger}}'', which also provided the line the trope is punnily [[TropeNamers named]] from.

* NoMrBondIExpectYouToDine: The {{Trope Maker|s}}, to be [[TropeCodifier codified]] in ''Film/{{Goldfinger}}'', which also provided the line the trope is punnily [[TropeNamers named]] from. Justified in this instance, since Dr. No is trying to at least understand Bond better, and possibly even recruit him into SPECTRE.
