** The cremation scene. Getting cremated alive has got to be the most horrific way to die imaginable.
*** The music playing during that scene hardly makes it better.

*CompleteMonster: Blofeld, having plastic surgery again, has multiple diamonds stolen to power a satellite with an orbital laser. Blofeld calls an auction between the Soviets, Chinese and Americans: the winner will possess nuclear supremacy in the world. The losers will be wiped out by the satellite.

* FridgeLogic: Bond uses a voice changing machine to intercept Blofeld's order to Bert Saxby to kill Willard Whyte. But then Saxby still shows up to do the job, making one wonder how he found out about the order. Since Blofeld noticed something odd about Saxby's voice, he may have called Saxby back, Saxby said he hadn't called Blofeld and Blofeld figured out what was going on. This is helped by the fact that he also moves up his plans by a day and leaves for the oil rig as soon as he can.

* WhatAnIdiot: Willard Whyte has installations all over the place; Alaska, Florida, Maine, Oregon, Texas, Baja -- wait, he doesn't have anything in Baja? The villains could've set up ''anywhere'' along any coastline, ''and they choose the one place Whyte knows he doesn't have any property''? And then they ''mark'' their secret base on Whyte's map?

* HarsherInHindsight / HilariousInHindsight: Bond on the idea of getting married: "[[Literature/OnHerMajestysSecretService It wouldn't last.]] I'd get claustrophobia and run out on her. [[Literature/YouOnlyLiveTwice Get myself sent to Japan or somewhere.]]" (In the novels, ''OHMSS'' and ''You Only Live Twice'' take place one right after the other.)

* OlderThanTheyThink: Many fans complained that Blofeld had a full head of hair in this movie instead of his iconic bald appearance of the previous two films. In fact, Blofeld did have hair during his appearances in ''Film/FromRussiaWithLove'' and ''Film/{{Thunderball}}'', though it's difficult to see due to his face being obscured in those films. On top of that, the literary version was also described with an appearance close to that of Charles Gray in this film; in fact, the only reason why the screen Blofeld was ever bald was that Creator/DonaldPleasance happened to be bald himself.

** Blofeld also looked very much like Charles Gray, as described in the books of [=OHMSS=] and YOLT. He was never a bald man, and the {{Handwave}} about his MagicPlasticSurgery came straight from Fleming.

** And the The KillSat itself.itself, which somehow manages to look worse and worse in each shot. In the shots of the rocket launching and separating it actually looks decent, at about the standards of the similar sequences from ''Film/YouOnlyLiveTwice''. By the time it takes out a Chinese military base, the effects standard has dropped to being barely above a contemporary episode of ''Series/DoctorWho''.

* TheyJustDidntCare: It's quite obvious that Connery was only in this one for the giant paycheck, especially when he's visibly struggling to keep a smirk off his face while Bond is playing a grieving brother.
