* TheAce: Derek Flint is a ludicrously competent CaptainErsatz of Film/JamesBond, with all of the latter's traits turned UpToEleven. The Government tries to give him a code book? No need, he's designed a better one. They try to get him a plane? He'll fly his own, thanks anyway. Training? He's a master fencer, martial artist, ''and'' dancer. He can meditate so deeply that it passes for death, and wake up with no ill effects. He can speak Italian so fluently that it fools natives. He does complicated surgery with a letter opener. He can tell you ''what city a Bouillabaisse was made in'' just from tasting it once. The whole movie is like this. And somehow Creator/JamesCoburn makes it awesome instead of annoying.

* RealityHasNoSubtitles: When Flint goes to Marseilles to find out which restaurant in the city serves bouillabaisse with a specific recipe, at one point he talks to a waiter in French.
