* 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.

* MagnificentBastard: Blofeld made good use of decoys this time around. [[spoiler: He used not only one, but multiple decoys of himself and when Bond meets him and a decoy later in the film, not knowing which is which, he scares the cat and kills the one it runs into, but it turns out the cat was a decoy too, [[FridgeBrilliance the real cat had a diamond collar]], [[RewatchBonus as seen in the intro]].]] Well played, Blofeld.

* 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.

** 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.

* 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.
