* 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.

Justified in this instance, since Dr. No is trying to at least understand Bond better, and possibly even recruit him into SPECTRE.

* HongKongDub: Due to the large amount of dubbing that takes place (including every female character except Moneypenny), this inevitably tends to happen on occasion. The worst offender is the commander of the gunboat that opens fire on Bond, Honey and Quarrel, as not only is his dub ''very'' hit-or-miss, he even has the "bullhorn" effect on his voice when he's meant to be talking without it.

** Q is described as being the armorer, so technically the film's main gadget was the Walther PPK Q gives Bond.

* NoEndorHolocaust: Bond and Honey really should have died from radiation sickness after the events of the movie. The entire island was contaminated, and they were rather close to that nuclear meltdown at the end.

Added DiffLines:
* NoOSHACompliance: Dr. No's reactor. The entire island was radioactive because of it. Also, all Bond had to do to blow the whole thing up was to turn a wheel, which doesn't seem very safe to say the least.

** The book explains her reason for thinking this as a result of her orphaned upbringing and lack of education, leaving her with the mentality of a child. Scene demonstrating this were left out of the final draft of the screenplay.
