* DeathTrap: The gold-cutting laser Goldfinger has Bond strapped to is one of the most iconic in cinema, if not fiction in general. Something of a subversion of the usual way the trope is played out, however, in that it actually is a pretty good trap; it's only a bit of quick bluffing that manages to get Bond out of it.

More than the previous entry, ''Film/FromRussiaWithLove'', this one is almost always considered to be the high point of the series, where all the characteristic elements were in perfect alignment.

** Even better given how the novel ''did'' try to push the idea of stealing the gold.

* MuteButNotSilent: Oddjob, Auric Goldfinger's BattleButler. Goldfinger says when he's introduced that Oddjob is mute, and indeed the only sound he ever makes is a wordless yell to tell his master he's "found" his missing golf ball (as in, planted a new one).

* RealityEnsues: The point of Bond's speech to Goldfingers pointing out how it's physically impossible to remove the gold from Fort Knox in anything less than a week and a half and he's going to have the Army and every police agency in the country on him in two hours. Of course, it's right then Goldfinger reveals he has no plans of removing anything.

''Goldfinger'' is the third film in the ''Film/JamesBond'' franchise and is possibly the most iconic of the series. Part of what made it so good is that it is a shining example of a PragmaticAdaptation that changed the title villain's rather ridiculous plot to literally rob Fort Knox in Creator/IanFleming's [[Literature/{{Goldfinger}} original novel]] into a plan that feels honestly and believably ingenious (not to mention changing the book's rather blatant [[ValuesDissonance racism, sexism, and homophobia]]).

* PragmaticAdaptation: Over the original book, mostly the tone of racism and sexism abounding in it.
** Most notably is the novel has Goldfinger planning to slowly poison the water supply of the troops as if they won't notice and truly remove all the gold physically. The movie not only solves the poison issue but also the far more ingenious idea of nuking the gold (with a scene of Bond openly relating how stealing it all would be impossible.)
