* ''[[Literature/{{Illuminatus}} The Illuminatus! Trilogy]]'' contains a particularly meta example in the form of Fission Chips, aka Agent 0000[[ArcNumber 5]], who joined the [=MI-6=] on a whim after realizing that [[TuxedoAndMartini his personality, tastes, mannerisms, and physical appearance were basically the same as those James Bond]], and is considered a bit of a laughingstock within the agency because of it, despite otherwise being a very good agent.
** Chips's other main flaw is that he's a ConspiracyTheorist, convinced that he's one step away from proving the existence of the vast underground super-criminal network known as [=BUGGER=][[note]]read: [=SPECTRE=][[/note]]. This being ''[[Literature/{{Illuminatus}} The Illuminatus! Trilogy]]'', his theories naturally [[TheCuckoolanderWasRight turn out to be 100% correct on nearly every detail]] (though he did get [[TheIlluminati the name]] wrong).

* Subverted in ''Film/{{Haywire}}'', in which Paul, who Mallory believes to be an MI-6 agent sent to help her and who behaves just like this, is actually not a suave British spy but a thuggish Irish PsychoForHire who's been hired to kill her and another target and frame her for the other guy's death.

** Playing ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolid3'' while wearing the Tuxedo nets Naked Snake an amusing and annoyed lecture from [[TheAce The Boss]] about how impractical it is. There's also a conversation about James Bond with the other characters (specifically the Major, who is a complete James Bond fanboy) suggesting silly things (like a gun shaped like a snake) that he could use.

* ''Das Unsichtbare Visier'' (1973-79). Alarmed over the growing underground popularity of James Bond among their youth, the East German government created this TV series in which a Stasi agent played by Armin Mueller-Stahl battled the evil CIA, West Germany, resurgent Nazis, and other forces of decadent Western capitalism.

* In WorldWarII both the British and American services recruited a large number of gentleman-spies. Some of them like TropeNamer Creator/IanFleming and [[Literature/TheQuietAmerican Graham Greeene]] retired to write SpyFiction. Creator/DennisWheatley is best known for his paranoia-laden occult thrillers. Others like Nicholas Eliot continued as a career. Kim Philby found [[TheMole a second career.]]

Everyone knows this character. He wears a tuxedo with a small [[BowtiesAreCool Bowtie (which Is Cool)]], a martini in one hand ([[DrinkOrder shaken, not stirred]], naturally) and a Walther PPK in the other. Announcing himself as "[[TheNameIsBondJamesBond Surname... Forename Surname]]", he engages in witty DoubleEntendre speak with busty high society women that leads into the bedroom. And just in case he finds himself in a particularly hopeless situation, he'll have a gadget hidden in his cuff links that will allow him to defeat the {{mooks}} ([[BondOneLiner with a bad pun or two thrown in posthumously]]) and save the day.

* ''ComicBook/TheLeagueOfExtraordinaryGentlemen: Black Dossier'', has a dark {{Deconstruction}} of the literary Bond, with all his worst aspects played up. Bond himself appears (with the serials scratched off-- his name is only given as "Jimmy", but we're also told he's related to Campion Bond)... and he's a sociopathic rapist manchild with a TorturePorn fetish who gets the crap kicked out of him after some jokes about a woman's stage name being Oodles O'Quim. He's quite a JerkAss even beforehand, so this is very satisfying. As well as that, he's reckless, bungling, AxCrazy, nervous, abusive to womn, too reliant on his own gadgets (which often don't work), is a wonderful shot but pathetic in a fistfight and doesn't care for how much collateral damage he causes during operations. And all his adventures [[spoiler: are fabricated for British morale.]] Unfortunately, we see him walk off with the girl in the end, [[spoiler:after he murders her adoptive uncle, who had exposed him as a traitor, coward and in the pocket of the CIA.]] Allan Quartermain even mocks how sorry the British adventure hero has become.
