* MoreDakka: The [[GameBreaker RC-P90]] is famous for this. The Phantom also holds a large magazine (50) and the ZMG has quite a rapid rate of fire. You also do not want to be in the sights of the heavy drone guns.

** The KF7 Soviet. While it's not as powerful as the AR33 rifle, its shots don't penetrate enemies (allowing you to make sure you don't kill plot-important NPCs nearby), fires quickly, and floors enemies in just a few shots. It's easily the most widespread gun in the game, being used by a large majority of the Russian soldiers encountered.

* StayingAlive: In one of the bonus levels, Bond has to dispatch Baron Samedi in an Egyptian temple after receiving an invitation. First, killing him requires retrieving the Golden Gun from another room, a OneHitKill weapon that kills any enemy instantly. But every time Bond shoots him, he lets out an EvilLaugh and reappears somewhere else in the level. After killing him three times and 'completing' the mission, Samedi *again* shows up.[[note]]Hilariously enough though, a glitch in the programming makes it theoretically possible to kill him again even in this segment.[[/note]]

* DummiedOut: This game contains some of the most well-known examples of this trope, such as All Bonds mode, the Citadel map, and the castle in the Dam level.

The Motion-Sensor Bomb from this game would later show up in ''VideoGame/SuperSmashBros'' and its first sequel[[note]]The [[AllThereInTheManual official website of the first game]] lists [=GoldenEye=] as its origin, and although its origin is listed as [[WritingAroundTrademarks "TOP SECRET"]] in ''Melee'', it's still clearly the same bomb[[/note]], making ''[=GoldenEye=]'' the only licensed game to get any form of representation in the series.

* AdaptationalHeroism: Boris in the films is presented as a scumbag sellout who got all his co-workers killed and would've sent England into financial ruin just for money. In the game he is portrayed as a victim of Janus who was forced to work for him against his will (which could have also been the case in the film, [[IFightForTheStrongestSide he just decided to roll with it]]). [[DirtyCoward Even if he's just saying it to save his own skin]], [[PluckyComicRelief he's never been much of a threat by himself]], which is probably why [[WhatTheHellPlayer the game doesn't see the point in killing him]].

** Lower difficulties in ''The Runway'' don't require you to destroy the Gatling Guns on the runway, if you don't the cutscene will show them shooting at you when you fly away. More impressively, the game will actually adjust to have one gun firing if you destroyed one but not the other. Also if you left the tank past the plane, you can see it on the runway during the cutscene.
