Many of the most widely known and celebrated Bond tropes come from this movie, including Creator/KenAdam's giant volcano set. Most famous, however, is the genre-defining performance from Creator/DonaldPleasence as Blofeld, complete with a fluffy white cat to stroke - many people are surprised to be told this is actually the only one Pleasence is in (though the character himself shows up a few more times). This Blofeld was specifically parodied as Doctor Evil in AustinPowers, as were a few other tropes such as the hollowed out volcano lair.

* BlackmailIsSuchAnUglyWord: Subverted in that while blackmail may be an ugly word, but its closely related term, extortion, is fine with Blofeld. After all, Blofeld says upfront, "Extortion is my business."

** It's certainly lovingly parodied in the second AustinPowers movie, with entire sets recreated very closely.

* AssholeVictim: Helga Brandt. Trying to deflect the blame for failing to kill Bond is the worst thing a henchman could possibly do, so it's unlikely anyone will feel sad for her when she's plunged into the piranha pool.

* AnimalMotifs: Blofeld's famous white cat underlines his own cat-like qualities, such as his calm assurance, soft demeanor, and his habit of playing with his victims before killing them.

Added DiffLines:

* SpoilerCover: The box art prominently shows the full likeness of Ernst Stavro Blofeld, which is shown in that movie for the first time. It isn't exactly a major plot twist, but it doesn't seem appropriate for a villain who famously spent at least two a half ''movies'' with his face just off-camera.

* ProstheticLimbReveal: James Bond meets with another operative in Japan who walks up to him with a limp. Bond borrows the man's cane and hits him in the leg with it to make sure he isn't faking. The man's only comment is to say he's glad Bond picked the correct leg.

* PaperThinDisguise: "Japanese Bond". It's a nod to the novel, where Bond really manages to look Japanese...somehow. He even fools Blofeld for a while after being captured.
