* AffablyEvil: They act very cheery during the film while commiting increasingly colder murders. In the novel, the latter trope is played straight, with them viciously taunting their victims before torturing them.

* RedemptionDemotion: One of the most {{egregious}} examples when it comes to intelligence. As a criminal, she came across as a slick, competent pro with enough authority to have her own henchman. She even showed some cleverness escaping a squadron of CIA agents organized to arrest her. After her HeelFaceTurn, she blunders around so embarrassingly that both Bond and Blofeld make snide comments on {{what an idiot}} she is.

->'''Played by:''' Charles Gray

Bond's Arch-Enemy returns, having dropped his old outfit (SPECTRE) and escaped justice using body doubles. This Blofeld mostly hides behind the apparatus of Williard Whyte's business. Curiously, though, he doesn't exactly keep a low profile, in fact, he turned on the {{camp}} UpToEleven.

In any case, this was the last time Bond tangled with him (apart from a LawyerFriendlyCameo in ''Film/ForYourEyesOnly'' and the remake of ''Thunderball'', ''Film/NeverSayNeverAgain''), until ''Film/{{Spectre}}'' was released.

Jimmy Dean

A reclusive billionnaire kidnapped by Blofeld. The latter impersonates him
with him (apart from a LawyerFriendlyCameo voice changer in ''Film/ForYourEyesOnly'' order to use his wealth and space research facility to build and launch a KillSat. Once the remake deception is uncovered by Bond, Whyte uses his contacts and funds to assist in the destruction of ''Thunderball'', ''Film/NeverSayNeverAgain''), until ''Film/{{Spectre}}'' was released.Blofeld's lair on an oil rig off the coast of Baja California.



* AffablyEvil: Blofeld is at his most affable with Bond in this film.
* ArchEnemy: Bond stages a RoaringRampageOfRevenge after him at the start of the film.
* BigBad: The main antagonist of the film.
* BodyDouble: He has created several body doubles of himself using MagicPlasticSurgery on his henchmen.
* CampStraight: Probably the most blatant case in the franchise. He even gets DisguisedInDrag at one point.
* TheChessmaster: Blofeld's EvilPlan this time is using a diamond-powered KillSat to destroy nuclear weapons in China, the Soviet Union and the United States, then propose "an international auction, with nuclear supremacy going to the highest bidder."
* DeadpanSnarker: Blofeld is also at his most snarkier in this film. He's especially having a ball in the third act at the oil rig.
--> '''Blofeld:''' The satellite is at present over... Kansas. Well, if we destroy Kansas the world may not hear about it for years. Perhaps New York, with all that smut and traffic... might give them a chance for a fresh start.
* DiabolicalMastermind: He's the mastermind behing a "pipeline" of diamond smugglers to obtain the diamonds for his laser satellite. He later sends assassins to dispose of its members once [[YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness they'd outlived their usefulness]].
* DisguisedInDrag: The way he escapes from Whyte's casino.
* EvilIsHammy: Makes more ham-style comments and snarks this time.
* GoodSmokingEvilSmoking: The cigarette holder as an Evil Smoking indicator.
* IdentityImpersonator: Impersonates Willard Whyte in order to use the latter's wealth and space research facility for his schemes.
* MagicPlasticSurgery: He creates doubles of himself using plastic surgery and ... mud baths(?!) on his henchmen.
* NotQuiteDead: At the beginning of the film, Bond finds him at a facility where Blofeld look-alikes are being created through surgery. Bond kills a test subject, and later the "real" Blofeld, by drowning him in a pool of superheated mud. Turns out ''that'' Blofeld was also a look-alike.
* OmnicidalManiac: Doesn't mind targeting nuclear missiles or nuclear submarines with his killsat.
* RightHandCat: He even ''duplicates'' his trademark white Persian cat in order to fool Bond.
* SmokingIsCool: Complete with a cigarette holder.
* SupervillainLair: Two: Whyte's penthouse atop a hotel in Las Vegas, and an oil rig.
* WarForFunAndProfit: This is his plan with the diamond laser KillSat. He demonstrates it on a handful of contraptions from the U.S., Russia, and China, in that order, and then holds an "international auction" to give nuclear supremacy to the highest bidder, and the losers get blown up; Washington is targeted as a result.
