* ''Series/StarTrekDeepSpaceNine''. Bashir likes to run a holosuite program that enables him to basically BE the film James Bond. "Bashir, Julian Bashir." He also specifies his martinis "stirred, not shaken" to invert Bond's usual drink order. {{Lampshaded|Trope}} all the way by Garak's constant snarking about it, when he was along for one run of the program ([[HolodeckMalfunction when something weird happened, of course]]). Despite the presence of an honest to goodness secret agent in the program, Bashir ignores him because he's playing James Bond, and is not in an actual covert operation, and the two play by different rules.
-->'''Garak''' (on having it explained to him that the decadent living and {{Bond Girl}}s are government-issue): "I think I joined the wrong intelligence service!"

* ''WesternAnimation/MiloMurphysLaw'' gives us high-ranking [[TimePolice time agents]] Brick and Savannah, who, in contrast to their lower-ranking counterparts Balthazar Cavendish and Vinnie Dakota, have a high budget to spend on flashy outfits and fancy gear. They're not perfectly able to live up to the image, however, as their attempts at BelligerentSexualTension have thus far [[NoSparks fallen flat]].

Added DiffLines:

* ''Film/OperationLovebirds'' from 1965 is an early spoof of the genre. The lead character, a goofy novelty salesman mistaken for a secret agent, at one point ''snorkels'' out to the [[BigBad Big Bad's]] island base in his tuxedo.

* ''[[Literature/TheLaundrySeries The Jennifer Morgue]]'': The subject of both AffectionateParody and TakeThat in the Creator/CharlesStross novel. Because of the TheoryOfNarrativeCausality, the protagonist [[spoiler: and his girlfriend]] starts acting out James Bond tropes, commenting how much he differs from Bond. In regard to Bond's signature drink, every time it's ordered in the novel, there are comments on how awful it tastes.

* In ''Literature/SubversiveActivity'', Reddon (only his love interest calls him "James") wears evening dress, carries useful gadgets, expresses an appreciation for a vodka martini shaken not stirred, and appears constitutionally incapable of leaving an ''entendre'' undoubled. He also has a justification for wearing evening dress while breaking into the opponent's lair: at first he just says it's "rather a tradition in my service", but later he elaborates that ''because'' he and his secret service colleagues all dress that way when they go to work, it is ''de facto'' the uniform of the service, and therefore if he is captured by the enemy he can claim honorable treatment as a uniformed serviceman under TheLawsAndCustomsOfWar and avoid being shot out of hand as a spy.

* PlayedWith rather heavily in ''Film/KingsmanTheSecretService'', where the type is {{Deconstructed|Trope}}, [[DeconReconSwitch then]] eventually played straight. And played straight again in ''Film/KingsmanTheGoldenCircle''. The Statesmen (American counterparts of the very British Kingsmen) are more like [[NewOldWest "Cowboy Hats and Booze"]] in the latter.
