* BavarianFireDrill: Bond attempts (and succeeds) to masquerade as the villain, Scaramanga, to a Thai entrepreneur -- by actually ''pasting a third nipple on himself'' and hanging out proudly by the pool. He's gambling on the idea that that the entrepreneur and Scaramanga have never actually met in person, and that the entrepreneur would only know Scaramanga by his identifying physical oddity. The plan actually works [[spoiler:but then Bond gets found out and used for practice by a Thai krabi krabong school. Turns out, Scaramanga was RIGHT THERE!]]

* KingpinInHisGym: Scaramanga has a warped relationship with his diminuative manservant Nick-Nack; in the event of his death, Nick-Nack inherits everything... in return for Nick-Nack actually ''trying'' to kill him by hiring the best assassins in the world for Scaramanga to pit his skills against.

* MythologyGag: Instead of the famous custom gun of the film, the titular Golden Gun's of the book are a Colt Single Action Army and a Derringer. Nick Nack holds Bond up in the stadium with a Derringer and Scaramanga uses a Colt SAA to shoot a bottle of champagne on his beach - which he then proceeds to call a ''harmless toy'', which could also count as a possible TakeThat to his book counterpart who is considered one of the weaker villains of the series.

* ThugDojo: The martial arts school where Hai Fat has Bond sent to is a place where students DuelToTheDeath in front of the sensei, likely what Hai Fat intended for Bond. (Bond cheats against the first student who tries to fight him, the second is far more careful.)

This was the first Bond movie allowed to be screened in the Kremlin, where a Russian official told Cubby Broccoli that the KGB clearly didn't train Scaramanga very well. Possibly because there is only one mention of them in the entire movie. (RedChina, on the other hand ...) It's also the last film that Harry Saltzman worked on.

** Given that the room is essentially a training course where NickNack hires assassins to kill Scaramanga, it's plausible they'd provide extra weapons for a smart assassin in order to increase the challenge for Scaramanga

* AccidentalKidnapping: Goodnight really has nobody to blame but herself when she gets caught by Scaramanga; she actually ''hides in the trunk of his car'' while trying to plant a tracking device on it.
** Not quite -- she's leaning into the trunk to plant the tracking device out of sight. Scaramanga just shoves her the rest of the way.
