* BewareTheSillyOnes: Campy and goofy as they are in the movie, they still manage to rack up ant impressive body count as they clean up the smuggling pipeline, and they come pretty damn close to actually ''killing off James Bond.'' In an impressively horrific fashion, to boot.



* RedRightHand: In the book, Wynt has a distinctive wart on his thumb, while Kidd has white hair.

* 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.
