->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 -- and it's been hinted by fans (and Blofeld himself in the film) that he might be another double who's thinks he's the genuine Blofeld.

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