* AwardBaitSong: "Without You", performed by Peabo Bryson (a few years before he became one of the go-to guys for this trope) and Regina Belle. It was actually a radio hit…and was succeeded five years later by them reuniting to do [[WesternAnimation/Aladdin "A Whole New World"]] together of course.

[[UnInstallment There are no]] ''[[UnInstallment Leonard Part 1]]'' [[UnInstallment through]] ''[[UnInstallment 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.

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.

* 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:

* 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]].)
