  • Before making a single edit, Tropedia EXPECTS our site policy and manual of style to be followed. Failure to do so may result in deletion of contributions and blocks of users who refuse to learn to do so. Our policies can be reviewed here.
  • All images MUST now have proper attribution, those who neglect to assign at least the "fair use" licensing to an image may have it deleted. All new pages should use the preloadable templates feature on the edit page to add the appropriate basic page markup. Pages that don't do this will be subject to deletion, with or without explanation.
  • All new trope pages will be made with the "Trope Workshop" found on the "Troper Tools" menu and worked on until they have at least three examples. The Trope workshop specific templates can then be removed and it will be regarded as a regular trope page after being moved to the Main namespace. THIS SHOULD BE WORKING NOW, REPORT ANY ISSUES TO Janna2000, SelfCloak or RRabbit42. DON'T MAKE PAGES MANUALLY UNLESS A TEMPLATE IS BROKEN, AND REPORT IT THAT IS THE CASE. PAGES WILL BE DELETED OTHERWISE IF THEY ARE MISSING BASIC MARKUP.

James Bond. You appear with the tedious inevitability of an unloved season.

The 11th James Bond film, starring Roger Moore. Bond is sent to investigate Drax industries after one of their shuttles is hijacked in mid-transit, which turns out to be part of an Evil Plan to exterminate the world population and replace it with "ideal" specimens.

The movie was blatantly made to cash in on the science fiction craze that Star Wars had started[1]. Jaws returns as the only henchman to make a second appearance in the series, but his role was changed from "vicious killer" to "Wile E Coyote and The Road Runner".

Still, that laser and its Infinite Ammo can come in handy when you unlock it as a cheat in the N64 game GoldenEye.


This film contains examples of:

  1. How blatantly? The end credits of the older Bond movies always announced the title of the next one in the series. The previous movie, The Spy Who Loved Me said "James Bond will return in For Your Eyes Only." Moonraker was made instead.
  2. Though You Only Live Twice had a different screenwriter, namely Roald Dahl, whereas this and the previous film were written by Christopher Wood
