--->"In court I never show up like Austin Powers's fah-za/Father, father and hey I love gooooold"
** Don't forget Music/{{Madonna}}'s darkly mesmorizing [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mD5phTXGN_0/ "Beautiful Stranger"]], which served as the unofficial theme to the second movie. Oddly ironic considering that her contribution to [[Film/DieAnotherDay a real Bond movie]] was... not as well-received.

* BaseBreakingCharacter: Foxxy Cleopatra. Some love her for being a SassyBlackWoman and for being portrayed by Music/{{Beyonce}}. Others hate her for having no chemistry, romantic or otherwise, with Powers (unlike her predecessors) and for being one of the worst examples of an [[AffirmativeActionGirl Affirmative]] FauxActionGirl ever.

* OlderThanTheyThink: The disco remix of Beethoven's Fifth Symphony in ''Goldmember'' was not created for the film as some younger viewers initially thought. It was actually a song from the era, "A Fifth of Beethoven" by Walter Murphy, which was previously used on the soundtrack to ''Film/SaturdayNightFever''. The song has since gotten a second life, thanks to this movie and being featured in ''VideoGame/LittleBigPlanet'' and ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy''.

* EvilIsSexy: Alotta Fagina and Ivana Humpalot are (or in the case of Ivana Humpalot, are supposed to be) this because they are TheVamp for their movie.

Added DiffLines:

* IronWoobie: Austin is an ace at what he does, but the films show that beneath his awesome and funny exterior he's actually [[SadClown a broken, lonely man.]] He wakes up 30 years in the future where everything has changed beyond recognition and most of the people he knows are either dead or have moved on. Losing his mojo made him afraid of disappointing a woman he felt a connection with. His father doesn't care about any of his achievements. Despite his angst, he persists for the greater good and proves himself to be the best no matter what's troubling him.


Added DiffLines:

** Foxxy mentions having a fling with Austin about 8 years prior to their reunion in ''Goldmember''. Beyonce was only 20 when she was cast.

** In the third movie it's revealed that Austin Powers and Dr. Evil [[spoiler: are [[LongLostRelative actually brothers]]]]. This reveal would be used in earnest in the 2015 Bond film ''Film/{{Spectre}}'', where [[spoiler:James Bond and Ernst Stavro Blofeld are revealed to be stepbrothers.]]

** Mike Myers plays a heavyset Scotsman with a foul temper whose bowel movements could suffocate a donkey. [[WesternAnimation/{{Shrek}} Sound familiar?]]

** One could say that Mike Myers' [[TheCameo cameo role]] in ''Film/IngloriousBasterds'' is basically Austin Powers doing the job of [[MrExposition Basil Exposition]].
