The story is ostensibly the sixth great adventure of top CIA agent Leonard Parker (Cosby), the others remaining classified for now. Leonard has gained a wide variety of eccentric skills over the years, and now that he's been brought out of retirement to stop a plot by evil vegetarians who plan to train animals to kill people, he'll have to use most all of them to save the day... and his relationships with his ex-wife and daughter, while he's at it.

Added DiffLines:

* DeusExMachina: The seer gives Leonard a bunch of Deus Ex Machina devices. Their purpose is unknown til the time to use them comes.


There are no ''Leonard Part 1'' through ''5'', if you were wondering. The title itself is a spoof of [[{{Sequelitis}} multi-part spy thrillers]]. And even if there were prequels, Cosby would have probably destroyed them all by now. Or traded them in for a lifetime supply of pudding and JELL-O.

* NoticeThis: It's hard not to notice when an item of the ChekhovsArmory ends up being used because most (if not all) of them are surrounded by a glitter effect when Leonard pulls them out.



* WeaksauceWeakness: Medusa and her minions are such hard-core vegetarians that waving sausages and hamburger patties at them acts like a vampire seeing a cross. Then again, the one goon that is brave enough to take a bite out of Leonard's sausage has the ultimate violent reaction -- ''his head explodes''.



* WeaponizedCar: Leonrd's spy car has a cannon turret on its hood.

Added DiffLines:

* IndestructibilityMontage: One sequence has Leonard trying and miserably failing to blow down a door with a series of gadgets and weapons on his elaborate battle suit.

* CoversAlwaysLie: That DVD cover as the trope image? Leonard never appears that way. For whatever reason, the distributor was hoping to capitalize on the success of ''Film/TheAdventuresOfPlutoNash''. Let ''that'' sink in. (For the record, ''this'' [[http://www.impawards.com/1987/leonard_part_six_ver2.html is the actual movie poster]].)

Added DiffLines:

* ChekhovsArmory: A psychic gives Leonard an arsenal of DeusExMachina items such as melted butter (to scare killer lobsters.)


* WeHaveToGetTheBulletOut: Leonard, having been shot, removes the bullets himself, his trusty manservant only standing by with surgical tools and a mirror. Given the large jar full of bullets that the extracted slug ends up in, this is not the first time he's had to do this by a long shot.
