* HiddenDepths: At first glance, James Bond may seem to be your typical SociopathicHero. However, unlike a true sociopath, he is indeed capable of compassion. Just that he doesn't show it very often within his line of work for obvious reasons. In fact, he is actually uncomfortable with targeted assassinations (instead of killing for the safety of himself or others).
* ImprobableAimingSkills: Each of the Bonds is a crack marksman: Connery's Bond claims to have never missed with his Beretta when he's forced to change weapons in ''Film/DrNo'' and in ''Film/{{Thunderball}}'' he manages to shoot a clay pigeon without even looking at it and takes out Vargas with a HarpoonGun with a QuickDraw. Moore's Bond kills a sniper with a shotgun. Dalton's Bond fake-assassinates General Pushkin, who notes Bond's skill. Brosnan's Bond claims he never misses as a BondOneLiner. Part of Craig's Bond's character arc in ''Film/{{Skyfall}}'' is regaining his skills and he does with his [[AncestralWeapon father's rifle]]. Even Lazenby's Bond, who never manages to make a kill with his PPK onscreen, manages to show an impressive aim with a throwing knife and a calendar.
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: He initially comes off as being cold, misogynistic, and snarky. But he has saved the world more than once, demonstrates a strong sense of justice, and is ''very'' protective of his friends.

* LargeAndInCharge: Out of six actors, only Daniel Craig is below 6 feet. Thus Bond is always imposing!

Added DiffLines:

* BaldOfAwesome: Defied. Connery lost his hair very young and wore a toupee for the part, but apparently disliked doing so and pushed for the Broccolis to let him play a bald Bond.

* TooCleverByHalf: Ben Whishaw's Q in ''Film/{{Skyfall}}'', whose arrogance brings tragic results. Possibly because he's so young and inexperienced.

->'''[[Creator/JudiDench M]]''': Tell me what you know of James Bond.\\
'''[[Creator/RosamundPike Miranda Frost]]''': He's a 00, and a wild one, as I discovered today. He'll light the fuse on any explosive situation and be a danger to himself and others. Kill first, ask questions later. I think he's a blunt instrument whose primary method is to provoke and confront. A man nobody can get close to. A womanizer.
