** SMERSH also consider killing Grant straight off, but decide that a psychotic killer is useful as he won't suffer the VillainousBreakdown that normal people do when killing large numbers of people over a long period of time. They keep tight control of Grant during his lunatic phases, just using him for executions instead of missions.

Along with Oddjob and Jaws, he is quite an 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''".

* PaperThinDisguise: His disguise as Captain Nash in the film is simply Nash's hat, briefcase, and an upper-class English accent. ''And it works. On Bond.'''' In the book, it's a little more complicated, with a macintosh and suit and special tie, but it still works on Bond.
* PopCulturedBadass: In the book, he peppers his monologues to Bond with casual references to classic spy thrillers, such as Literature/BulldogDrummond.


Added DiffLines:

* TooSpicyForYogSothoth: Everyone he works for is absolutely terrified of him. Even when he first meets a Soviet colonel after defecting, the colonel is internally uneasy and seriously considering having Grant shot.

* PutOnABus: ''Trigger Mortis'' briefly mentions that he's gone into hiding after the death of Red Grant and the failure of the mission, with a new man replacing him as head of SMERSH. His fate is unknown to MI6, however.

** 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.



** Also getting choked out by his own garrote.
