** The bit where 007 inadvertantly walks into a spiders web ''really'' isn't convincing, as the spiders are clearly rubber (and he even [[ArtisticlicenceBiology swipes a red kneed tarantula off his elbow with much ease]]).

* {{Tearjerker}}: The death of 009, where we see him desperately running for his life only to succumb to a knife in his back the moment he he reaches his countrymen in West Berlin; his untimely death looms over Bond as he gives chase to his killers.
** Vijay's death; It's one of those few times where Bond is profoundly affected by the death of an ally, respectfully covering his mutilated body. Especially gutwrenching considering what a nice guy he was.

Added DiffLines:

* VindicatedByHistory: Was considered run-of-the-mill by most upon release and many still hold this attitude towards it today. However, most agree it was a better Bond film than its box office rival, ''Never Say Never Again'', and has found a following it did not have early on.

** The scene where Octopussy's circus attacks the villain's stronghold, fighting armed guards with circus tricks and acrobatics in brightly coloured spandex.

* ToughActToFollow: As if this movie's mediocrity isn't enough, it's coming on the heels of one of the best entries in the Moore era, if not ''the'' best, and certainly one of the best in the series overall.

Added DiffLines:

* NeverLiveItDown: Again, the scene where Bond dresses like a clown is usually the first thing people recall of this movie. However, the aforementioned circumstances of said scene may or may not mitigate the more negative effects of this for some.

Added DiffLines:

** A careful eye can clearly see Kamal's plane already coming apart a second before it actually erupts into flames.
** Gobinda crushing the dice; imposing as it is to see him crush them into dust, it's a tad too obvious that it is actually dust when he tosses it away.
