* AdaptationalBadass: Jaws is loosely based on the villain Sol "Horror" Horowitz from Ian Fleming's ''Literature/TheSpyWhoLovedMe'', who is a thug with a metal-capped teeth and who ends being killed unceremoniously by Bond while he tries to make a getaway on a car with his partner (who outlives him). Jaws, however, is a man who ''just won't die'', and is one of the most remembered aspects of both of the films he appears in, and of the series overall.

* CharacterDevelopment: Quite unexpected for a Bond villain. [[EnsembleDarkhorse The character proved to be very popular]] after the release of ''The Spy Who Loved Me''. That's why he didn't die in it, [[spoiler: finally turned to the good side and even found love in ''Moonraker''.]]

* BewareTheNiceOnes: When you push him too far, he's completely ruthless and won't stop till the person that's pissed him off is dead.

* BewareTheNiceOnes: When you push him too far, he's completely ruthless and won't stop till the person that's pissed him off is dead. Perhaps the most memorable example is in ''Film/ForYourEyesOnly'' when he has Locque's car balanced precariously on a cliff and ''kicks it over the edge''.

* {{Jerkass}}: Particularly in his first two appearances. In ''Literature/CasinoRoyale'', he's extremely misogynistic, briefly musing that women are only good for sex, is rather rough with Vesper during sex and goes a huge internal StayInTheKitchen rant during a car chase. ''Literature/LiveAndLetDie'', meanwhile, has Bond being incredibly racist to blacks. And ''Literature/{{Goldfinger}}'' has him perform borderline sexual assault on Pussy Galore, be rather homophobic and shower intense hatred on Koreans.

* MadScientist: He shows elements of this occasionally.

* MadScientist: He shows elements of this occasionally. Some of the gadgets during the Roger Moore era, such as an umbrella that closes like a venus fly trap when wet, exploding bola ropes and a climbing pole fashioned from a snake charmer's basket that extended when played are just a few of the ideas he comes up with that take a special kind of madness to come up with.

* CaptainCrash: Has a tendency to wreck cars in often hilarious ways; He dents Melina's [=2CV=] badly in ''Film/ForYourEyesOnly'', drives Orlov's car onto train tracks and subsequently into the path of an oncoming train in ''Film/{{Octopussy}}'' and, most famously, engages in a chase through the streets of Paris in an increasingly truncated car, finishing by driving ''the front half'' of the car around.
