*** The song isn't completely out of place for the movie, however. At one point, Bond mentions to Octopussy that they're "two of a kind"; one of the song's lyrics echos this.

** Averted with the theme song. The song is titled "All Time High", and the word "Octopussy" cannot be found in the lyrics at all. (Music/ChrisCornell, who wrote a [[Film/CasinoRoyale2006 later Bond theme]], has declared that "Nobody wrote a song called ‘Octopussy’ but [[IntentionallyAwkwardTitle I think that was a mistake]]! They had a great opportunity and they squandered it." Of course, ''his'' Bond title theme, "You Know My Name", did not have the title (''Film/CasinoRoyale'') it it either.)

* FixingTheGame: Bond notices Kamal Khan taking a British gent for all he's worth in backgammon. He quickly figures out that Khan is using loaded dice that always come up double sixes (how nobody else caught on is a mystery). He offers to play him for double-or-nothing. Khan agrees. Bond invokes the "player's privilege" and uses Khan's dice to win. Instead of letting his Sikh dragon beat up Bond (and cause a scene), Khan pays Bond but warns him to spend the money quickly.

* MidSeasonUpgrade: Bond's PPK is replaced with the Walther [=P5=] in this movie as part of [[ProductPlacement a deal with Walther]]. Most people didn't notice, because not only do they look similar, but also Bond refers to having "mislaid my PPK" in spite of using a [=P5=] for the entirety of the film.

* TooDumbToLive: The least Gobinda could do, judging by his expression, was to wear a parachute. That is of course, [[IdiotBall if they had one on board...]]

* {{Understatement}}: How do you tell the audience of a circus that they were barely seconds from being in the epicenter of a nuclear detonation? "Ladies and Gentlemen, we had an emergency..."

** Meanwhile, Kamal and Gobinda are advised that it would be a good idea to be at least 30 miles away from the blast. The looks on their faces basically are "No shit, Sherlock".
