** Alec smugly points out that it's a ''lot'' more than banks; the [=GoldenEye=] will wipe out ''all'' of the UK's records, effectively annihilating the country that betrayed his parents.
-->'''Trevelyan''': You always did have a small mind, James. Itís not just erasing bank records, itís everything on every computer in Greater London. Tax records. Stock market. Credit ratings. Land registries. Criminal records. In sixteen minutes and 43... 42 seconds, the United Kingdom will re-enter the Stone Age.\\
'''Bond''': [[ApocalypseHow/Class0 A world-wide financial meltdown]]. And all so mad little Alec can settle a score with the world, [[UsefulNotes/{{Cossacks}} 50 years old]].

* GenreSavvy: The film is full of LampshadeHanging, so it's only appropriate that some of the characters be this.
** In the chemical plant, when Ourumov orders Bond and Trevelyan to "come out with their hands up", Bond replies to himself, "[[SarcasmMode How original]]".
** Ouromov isn't concerned when one of the NotQuiteDead Severnaya programmers hits the alarm, as he immediately tells Xenia, "Their best response time is 19 minutes. They'll be late."
** Natalya realizes Xenia isn't going to give up after a cursory inspection, so she sets up a feint so Xenia will think she's outsmarted her quarry.
** Bond knows there must have been [[TheMole an insider]] in the [=GoldenEye=] theft.
--->'''Bond:''' I know the Russian fail safe system. You don't just walk in and ask for the keys to the bomb. You need the access codes.
** Alec Trevelyan. Justified as [[spoiler:he's a former [=MI6=] agent]].
*** He knows that Bond won't shoot him in the statue park when Bond points a gun at him.
---->'''Alec Trevelyan:''' Oh, please, James, put it away! It's insulting to think I haven't anticipated your every move.
*** When Bond asks him where Natalya is, he replies, "[[TheCasanova Ah, yes, your fatal weakness]]."
*** He asks Bond if "[[TheAlcoholic All those vodka martinis]] [[ShellShockedVeteran silence the screams]] of all the men you've killed, or if you've found forgiveness in the arms of [[TheCasanova all those willing women]] for all the [[DisposableLoveInterest dead ones you failed to protect]]."
*** He knows to check Bond's detonator watch in Cuba in order to deactivate the explosives Bond has planted.
---->'''Alec Trevelyan:''' The watch. So, how is old Q? Up to his usual tricks? Ah, a new model. Still press here, do I?



* ISurrenderSuckers: Bond plants explosives in Trevelyan's base while under fire from his henchmen and then surrenders to them, so they'll take him out of the blast radius. However, Trevelyan turns out to be GenreSavvy.

* TwoLinesNoWaiting: Unusual for a Bond Girl, Natalya spends most of the first act in her own subplot, surviving the [=GoldenEye=] blast and figuring out a way to reach Boris, and doesn't actually meet Bond until about halfway through the movie.

** After Bonds beats Xenia at cards and introduces himself to her, Bond uses the line "The pleasure, I'm sure, was all mine." Later, after he survives her MurderousThighs, Bond forces her to take him to Janus. After doing so, she says "Well, once again, the pleasure was all yours." Xenia then attempts to make this an ironic echo later when she attacks Bond in Cuba, saying, "This time, Mr. Bond, the pleasure will be all mine." [[spoiler:right before her KarmicDeath]].

* DeusExMachina: [[spoiler:The watch laser]] that Bond uses to escape from the train car. Not exactly far-fetched since it's ''Bond'' movie, but what makes it fall under this category is it not being shown during the scene with Q where all the other gadgets are shown and talked about. Since it's a Bond film, a Type 3 ChekhovsGun "to write the story out of a corner" variant occurs with the other Q gadgets.
