Added DiffLines:

* EstablishingCharacterMoment: In the movie, we're first introduced to him in the middle of a chess match. When he received the message from SPECTRE to report in at once, he very calmly disposes of the message, and then very calmly ''crushes'' his opponent with a single move. It demonstrates the reasons he's so dangerous: not only is he very smart, but he loves to toy with his opponents and have a little fun with them. When he's done screwing around, heads roll.

* BondVillainStupidity: Robert Shaw's chilling, brilliant performance obscures the fact that Grant may be the single most {{egregious}} example in the entire series. For once, [[WhyDontYouJustShootHim shooting Bond]] is the actual plan, but Grant manages to muck it up with an inexcusable bout of EvilGloating and JustBetweenYouAndMe. Further, after revealing to Bond that he's going to kill him and Tatiana and make it look like Bond committed murder-suicide, Grant [[EvilGloating gloats]], "The first one [bullet] won't kill you. Not the second. Not even the third. Not till you crawl over here and kiss my foot!" Of course, if Grant had succeeded in doing this, with four or more bullets in Bond's dead body, [[WhatAnIdiot it wouldn't look like a suicide]]. {{Justified|Trope}} in that its mentioned he used to be in an insane asylum--beneath his seemingly professional exterior, [[AxCrazy he's just a homicidal lunatic]].
** Also, Blofeld explicitly mentions that he wants Bond's death particularly humiliating and painful which fits Grant's methods in the scene pretty solidly so he might just be following orders.

Added DiffLines:

* FatalFlaw: His greed proves to be this in the film. For all the BondVillainStupidity mentioned elsewhere, none of it would actually have mattered if Bond hadn't been able to dupe him into trying to steal the fifty gold sovereigns from one of the two field equipment briefcases, which causes him to unwittingly activate a tear gas cartridge that gives Bond the opening he needs to take it down.

Along with Oddjob, Baron Samedi and Jaws, he is one of the most iconic Bond villain henchman. Grant is a tall, burly, blonde SPECTRE agent (SMERSH in the books) and a sadistic, ruthless and psychotic killer. Grant's backstory in the movie and book are completely different but both effectively amount to "''This is a horrible person you don't want to mess with''".
