* SpyShip: An odd variation. James Bond discovers that the partially sunken RMS Queen Elizabeth in Hong Kong Victoria harbor has been turned into a British listening post for spying on the Chinese.

** The movie could have ended about 40 minutes earlier if Goodnight hadn't tried to put a tracer in Scaramanga's car. She had the solex and Scaramanga wasn't particularly interested in hunting down Bond at this point. They could have just walked away and let him be.

* HuntingTheMostDangerousGame: Scaramanga likes to hunt at the beginning and the of the film.

* HuntingTheMostDangerousGame: Scaramanga likes to hunt at the beginning and the end of the film.



* InNameOnly: The plot of the book and the film are fairly far off. In the book Bond goes to only one place (Cuba), scaramanga isn't the BigBad type he is in the film and the solex agitator isn't even a part of it.

* DumbBlonde: Mary Goodnight, the most blatant example in the whole Bond series. Especially bad, considering she's supposed to be a trained agent herself (albeit in the Foreign Service, but ''still''...)

Especially bad, considering she's supposed to be a trained agent herself (albeit in the Foreign Service, but ''still''...)). In the original novel, she was actually Bond's ''secretary'', who wouldn't be expected to have field training. This lack of training apparently came through.

* ConvectionShmonvection: We're told that the beam of concentrated sunlight, which goes through open air with no isolation from the machine's operator, heats up to 3,500 degrees Fahrenheit. Bond later has it lit up a few centimeters from his face.

Added DiffLines:

* WalkingDisasterArea: Goodnight's incompetence and clumsiness causes so many disasters, you almost wonder how she manages to survive to the climax, where she slugs Scaramanga's crony, causing him to fall into a cooling tank (eventually causing the whole island to blow up) then backing into the starter button for the laser, turning it on. (Bond is ''very'' lucky the cloud didn't move a second earlier...)

* LandOfDragons: Two different locales, actually, none of them the mainland. The first is UsefulNotes/fHongKong, the second is Scaramanga's island lair, somewhere in the Chinese-controlled part of the South China Sea.
