    Incredible Characters Wiki

    Austin Powers is the titular character of the 1997-2002 Jay Roach film trilogy. He was portrayed and created by Mike Myers.

    Why He Behaves

    1. Austin is very quotable with lines such as “Oh behave!”, “Judo chop!” and “Yeah, baby!”
    2. He is a clever parody of James Bond. It went to the point where the Daniel Craig films starting with Casino Royale became more serious instead of campy.
    3. Mike Myers did a great job portraying him. It helps that he is of British ancestry.
    4. Austin learns how to accept what was okay in the 1960s and isn't okay in the 1990s and 2000s.
    5. He is considered one of Mike Myers’ most notable roles alongside Shrek, Dr. Evil and Wayne Campbell.
    6. Austin had amazing chemistry with Felicity Shagwell and Vanessa Kensington in the first two movies.
    7. He decides not to have sex with Vanessa Kensington while she is drunk. This moment aged surprisingly well from a 1997 movie, back when the issue wasn't properly touched upon.
    8. His theme song “Soul Bossa Nova” by Quincy Jones is very catchy and well made. It went to the point where Quincy Jones himself made a cameo in the third film.

    Bad Qualities

    1. He had little chemistry with Foxxy Cleopatra compared to Vanessa Kensington and Felicity Shagwell. This is justified because Austin rarely knows Foxxy Cleopatra.
    2. His innuendos can be repetitive.

    Trivia

    • An Austin Powers animated series was in development by HBO in 1999 but was scrapped.
    • There was an Austin Powers action figure that says either “Do I make you horny” or “Yeah, baby, yeah!” The earlier version was accidentally sent to a toy store and caused some controversy in 1999.
