* 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 give him a gadget? He already has a better one. 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.

* [[AffectionateParody/{{Film}} Affectionate Parody]]: Both films are parodies of the ''Film/JamesBond'' series films, particularly Flint's savoir faire and knowledge of esoteric subject areas.

* 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. It's fairly clear what he's talking about even if the viewer doesn't speak French, so it doesn't need to be translated.
