** In ''Film/TheLivingDaylights'' Bond turns up in a tux and is told off by a fellow agent. "This is a mission, not a fancy dress ball." Bond then has to get into a sniper position, and a velcro collar on his tux instantly converts it into a blacksuit so he doen't stand out in the dark room.

Bond then has to get into a sniper position, and a velcro collar on his tux instantly converts it into a blacksuit so he doen't stand out in the dark room. Also, in James's defence on this one, the mission takes place at a prestigious concert hall during a classical music production, so the tux actually helps him blend in while he's there as well.

Athena criticises him for insisting on a nice suit even when there's a good chance of danger. -->'''Desmond:''' Athena, please. I'm representing the British Empire.\\ '''Athena:''' Yeah, well, you look less like you're ready for action and more like you're ready for ''tea''.

* Carstairs from ''Film/CarryOnSpying'' is this trope, but it's not surprising because ''Spying'' was the first ''James Bond'' parody in movie history.

* Played with a lot in ''{{Chuck}}''. Chuck Bartowski is the furthest thing from James Bond you can find. But he still tries, because he's FunctionalGenreSavvy. When he evolves from TheWoobie to IronWoobie, he makes it work. In fact, because he's so successful (thanks to Casey, Sarah and the Intersect) that the default name he uses when he goes on a mission becomes feared by the enemy agents as a Bond-esque Tuxedo super-spy. Bryce Larkin, in the early episodes, highlights the 'international superspy' as he should be, and Roan Montgomery basically IS Bond, if he were allowed to genuinely age.
