* FantasticRacism: He's naturally anti-Semitic, as seen in how he fondly remembers beating a Jewish banker to death after the war and bullying his partner, Meyer, during the poker game with Bond. He also goes on a huge rant against England to Bond and Gala when they've been captured.
-->I loathe and despise you all. You swine! Useless, idle, decadent, fools, hiding behind your bloody white cliffs while other people fight your battles. Too weak to defend your colonies, toadying to America with your hats in your hands. Stinking snobs who'll do anything for money. Hah!

* DiabolicalMastermind: His evil plan reeks on the ANaziByAnyOtherName flavor of TheSocialDarwinist trope, capped off with his intention of repopulate the world with only the human beings he chose as "superior beings."

Emily Bolton

A group [=MI6=] intelligence operative of [[MasterRace "perfect" women]] who are tasked by Drax with repopulating the human race "VH" station, stationed in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. She follows Bond after he destroys all human life on Earth.arrives to the city and when he arrives at his hotel suite, Manuela is already there, where she presents herself as his Brazilian contact. She helps him investigate a large distribution company in Rio, subsidiary of Drax Industries.


Added DiffLines:

* InformedAbility: There's nothing that implies that she's not equal to Bond, being a fellow intelligence operative, and even looking unflappable when she first meets Bond... up until she meets Jaws. Granted, by then Jaws had already established himself as one of the most badass henchmen of the series, but Manuela straight up descends into being a DamselInDistress.
* KidnappedByAnAlly: A variation; Manuela follows Bond after he arrives to Rio, and he smells something wrong once he notices it, before she presents herself at his suite as his Brazilian contact.
* MsFanservice: She is the kind of person that can [[MundaneMadeAwesome make sitting on a sofa sexy]]. Needless to say, Bond decides to kill some hours in Rio with her.
* PunnyName: In some Latin American countries, "doing a Manuela" is an euphemism for ADateWithRosiePalms. It might be just a coincidence, but in a movie where another woman is named Holly Goodhead, it being intentional doesn't sound too far-fetched.
* ShesGotLegs: Her bottom open dress when first meeting Bond lovely showcases her legs.
* WhatHappenedToTheMouse: The last time she's seen is after Bond saves her from Jaws and says that she should go somewhere safe, but there's no confirmation for it.
