** And speaking of ''Film/{{Goldfinger}}'', both the "white water" path on the first game and the "beauty clay" path of the second game require Fox to wear a wetsuit. Both times, he removes it to reveal his perfectly dry dinner jacket underneath, a nod to the opening of that movie when Bond does the same.

** On the non-spy-related references, Captain Drydock's voice characterization in ''Dry Cereal'' is a reference to [[Series/StarTrekTheOriginalSeries Captain Kirk]], right down to his speech about the sea being "the final frontier". And his boat is called the "SS Winaprise".

* AmbiguousSyntax: Is the title character a vulpine who also happens to be a secret agent or [[HisNameReallyIsBarkeep is his given name actually Spy Fox]]? If it's the former, then for some reason he feels the need to introduce himself by his profession.



* BondJamesBond: Fox always introduces himself this way. "The name's Fox, Spy Fox." Of course, this implies that he's either introducing himself by his profession (see {{Irony}}) or that's his [[HisNameReallyIsBarkeep real]] [[SpeciesSurname name]].



* {{Irony}}: The main character openly admits to being a secret agent whenever [[BondJamesBond he introduces himself]], despite the fact that the entire point of spying is to ''conceal your identity''. Of course, this being [[RuleOfFunny the kind of game that it is]], either nobody intuits that he's admitting to being a spy or [[HisNameReallyIsBarkeep Spy Fox is his actual given name]].
