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 Film/AustinPowers, as were a few other tropes such as the hollowed out volcano lair.

''You Only Live Twice'' (1967), often abbreviated as YOLT, is the fifth ''Film/JamesBond'' film, and the fifth starring Creator/SeanConnery. After Bond fakes his death to fall off the radar, he is sent to Japan to investigate SPECTRE's latest plot to spark a nuclear war by interfering in the SpaceRace. A little known fact about it is that the screenplay was written by children's book writer Creator/RoaldDahl, a good friend of Creator/IanFleming.

* CoitusEnsues: Subverted. Kissy emphatically insisted her fake marriage was strictly business and would not be consummated for their "honeymoon." This being a Bond movie, they still tried to do it, almost during ''a mission'' at that! Unfortunately M interrupted by surfacing a submarine direct beneath them while they were just getting started.

** Still, it's a gruesome and painful way to go, and apart from trying to kill Bond, she's not shown doing anything particularly nefarious.



** They suffer the heaviest losses when they're ambushed by the sentry guns in the crater. They're doing fine once they enter the base itself, with or without Bond's or Tanaka's help, albeit with some casualties.
