** "The Five Daughters Affair", also from the third season, also applies, at least in regards to its cast. While Herbert Lom is utilized well, actors such as Telly Savalas, Terry-Thomas, Curd Jurgens and Joan Crawford are given small, unremarkable roles.

* {{Woolseyism}}: The Latin American name of the series was translated as ''El agente de CIPOL" (The Agent of CIPOL), being CIPOL the Spanish acronym of " '''C'''omisión '''I'''nternacional '''P'''ara la '''O'''bservancia de la '''L'''ey" (International Council for Law Enforcement). It also overlaps with LuckyTranslation, as CIPOL sounds like the pormanteau for both RealLife agencies '''CI'''A and the Inter'''pol'''.

* AlasPoorVillain: General Harmon in "The Seven Wonders Of The World Affair, Part II." [[spoiler: Admittedly unlike most examples of his trope he doesn't get killed, but when he's exposed to the docility gas that he and the other bad guys plan to use in their scheme to take over the world and is ''permanently'' transformed from a dynamic man of action into someone who's one step up from a puppet - "Why don't you come out (of the elevator)?" "I have not been told to." - it's saddening. It helps that Leslie Nielsen, as Harmon, is the only cast member who [[TookTheBadFilmSeriously actually made an effort]] in acting terms.]]

* CompleteMonster: Season 3's "Five Daughters Affair" two-parter (later released in theaters as ''The Karate Killers'') has [[NebulousEvilOrganization THRUSH]] agent Randolph, whose plot involves releasing seawater-derived gold onto the market to create massive profits for THRUSH. His actions include seducing the wife of the doctor who created the method then killing her [[YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness once he has no more use for her]], gleefully taunting her before murdering her; poisoning the doctor; attempting to [[OffWithHisHead behead]] Illya in an ice-chopping machine; [[WouldHitAGirl smacking around Sandy]]; and shooting an unarmed elderly man [[DisproportionateRetribution just for raising his voice to him]]. These acts, coupled with his general SmugSnake demeanor, cement Randolph as probably the series’s nastiest villain.

* CompleteMonster: THRUSH agent Randolph of the ''Five Daughters Affair'' two-parter. His plot – releasing seawater-derived gold onto the market to create massive profits for THRUSH – isn’t monstrous in and of itself, but his methods, which include: seducing Dr. Simon True’s wife, killing her husband with poison, gleefully taunting her before murdering her, attempting to behead Illya in an ice-chopping machine, smacking around Sandy and shooting an unarmed elderly man just for raising his voice to him, coupled with his general SmugSnake demeanour, cement him as probably the series’ nastiest villain.

* BadassDecay: Heroes Napoleon Solo and Illya Kuryakin are sometimes subject to plot dependent BadassDecay, when necessary. E.g., in the third act of the third season episode, "The Five Daughters Affair, Part II", Solo and Kuryakin fight THRUSH's "karate killers" ([[spoiler: who despite that name (as given in the credits) do very little actual killing in the episode]]) for about the sixth time in this two-part adventure. Despite holding their own in several earlier fights with the karate killers, in this scene Solo and Kuryakin completely lose whatever fighting skills they've demonstrated earlier, and are straightaway handed their asses by the THRUSH "killers" in mere seconds. This is necessary, of course, to set up the fourth act's climax and resolution (therefore "plot dependent").
