An obvious spoof of the James Bond franchise, the titular character is an anthropomorphic fish named (surprise) James Pond who is secret-agent Double-Bubble 7 of the organization F.I.5.H. and has a "license to gill" in his battles against the evil J.A.W.S. organization and its leader Dr. Maybe (a spoof on the infamous 007 villain Dr. No). His adventures begin in ''James Pond: Underwater Agent'' (1990), in which he defends his watery home and its denizens from polluters and enemy agents. His next adventure, ''Codename Robocod'' (1991) sees Pond wearing robot armor as he sets out to save Santa Claus and his toy workshop, and ''Operation Starfish'' (1993) sends Pond into space to save the moon and its cheese supplies from Dr. Maybe. Most recently, Pond has been seen in the iPhone game ''James Pond in the Deathly Shallows'', though the game met many negative reviews.

* AbnormalAmmo: In ''Underwater Agent'', Pond shoots bubbles to trap enemies so that he can pop them away. ''Operation Starfish'' gives him a gun that shoots fruit.
* AllThereInTheManual: For the first two games, you get barely a screen's worth of dialogue at best telling you what the game's all about. Averted in ''Operation Starfish'', which opens with a lengthy story sequence explaining the plot.
* CheesyMoon: The entire plot of ''Operation Starfish'' is that Dr. Maybe wants to mine the moon and cripple the cheese market with his ill-gotten dairy gains.
* ContinuityNod: In the opening cutscene of ''Operation Starfish'', Dr. Maybe is seen leaving Santa's Workshop where he had just been defeated in the previous game.

** Do both of the above objectives and Dr. Maybe will be properly defeated... but why stop there?
** Do both and also recover all the optional items (missing agents, satellite parts, and hidden treasures), and [[GoldenEnding Dr. Maybe will be so devastated that he'll go into a babbling wreck.]]

* DownerEnding: In ''Operation Starfish'', if Pond doesn't shut down all the cheese mines before defeating Dr. Maybe, the villain will laugh at your failure and you'll get a Game Over screen for the effort. It's even worse if you closed the mines but also didn't destroy the stiltonium machines: Dr. Maybe will attack the Earth with incredibly-smelly cheese bombs.
** On the other hand, completing both objectives and also the optional goal of recovering all the agents, satellite parts, and treasures will [[GoldenEnding send Dr. Maybe into a mental breakdown.]]
