Added DiffLines:

* NoHeroToHisValet: Bond might be one of Britain's best professional killers who has saved the country (if not the world) single-handedly many times, but he's still a "jumped-up little shit" if he thinks he can tell Kincade what to do. [[PlayingWithATrope Played with]] since Kincade was unaware of James being a world-class spy. He is visibly shocked on seeing James' ace shooting before asking what was his profession.

Added DiffLines:

** Not the only example either. Bond is hiding out in a run-down manor with little-to-no weapons, with his only support being an old woman and a Scotsman. Silva's strategy? Why, bring an entire army with him! [[MoreDakka And a fully loaded]] [[UpToEleven gunship to boot.]]


Added DiffLines:

** When he assaults Skyfall manor with his mooks and gunship, he plays The Animals on the loudspeakers, [[LargeHam just to make a stylish entrance and annoy Bond.]]

* BunnyEarsLawyer: This man is weird, overly dramatic, flighty, and just ''a little bit weird''. Yet it's downright ''frightening'' just how ''good'' and efficient he is.

* {{Foil}}: To Bond mostly, though he has elements of Q and M as well. He's an evil agent who uses multiple gadgets, opposed to Bond. He is an expert hacker, opposed to Q. He makes very dark decisions and leads his organization, opposed to M.

* KnightOfCerebus: You thought Le Chiffre and Dominic Greene were nasty? You ain't seen nothing yet!

to:

* TheKlutz: He's actually rather clumsy when it comes to physicality compared to Bond (his method of sliding off a railing is ''belly-flopping off of it''), but all the same, he's ''just good enough'' to prove himself Bond's equal. This is probably the main reason why he finds physical stuff "dull."
* KnightOfCerebus: You If you thought Le Chiffre and Dominic Greene were nasty? You ain't seen was nasty, he's literally nothing yet!compared to Silva. He edges not just the Craig-era films into darker territory, but he's this for the ''entire franchise as a whole''. Not a single villain remotely had Bond on the ropes quite like Silva did, and he's pretty much the only Bond villain to get everything (or most of what) he wanted at the end of the film.

* TheBadGuyWins: [[spoiler:Posthumously. M dies from her wounds inflicted by his men.]] In fact, he's the ''only'' Bond villain in franchise history to squarely win by the end of the film. [[spoiler:Even though he died, he still brought the entire intelligence community to its knees and had M killed.]]

->'''Played by:''' Creator/NaomieHarris

Eve is an [=MI6=] field agent, who during the mission with Bond in Turkey, ends up shooting 007 while he struggled with Patrice atop a train. Afterwards she is suspended from field work, although she does aid in fighting off Silva in order to ensure that Bond can help M escape safely. Despite the fact that the Bond girl in the film is Séverine, Eve and Bond also share a few romantic moments.
----
* ActionGirl: She drives like a stuntwoman, is a trained sniper, takes out two mooks with her heels and a metal suitcase and goes on to shoot a few more before eventually deciding that fieldwork isn't for her.
* {{Adaptational Badass}}: [[spoiler: Easily the most action-capable version of Moneypenny]].
* DrivesLikeCrazy: Granted, they were in a chase, but James needs to have a word with her about driving in crowded streets.
* NiceJobBreakingItHero: She ends up shooting Bond while he struggled with Patrice atop a train, allowing Patrice to get away with the drive containing the identities of underconver NATO agents.
* RaceLift: Her counterparts in previous movies were Caucasian.
* TheReveal: At the end of the movie, Eve states she is not fit for field work, [[spoiler: and will remain only in a desk job at [=MI6=]. As Bond says that they have not been properly introduced, she says her full name is Eve Moneypenny]].
* SexySecretary; She's Bond's secretary, and you could cut their sexual tension ''with a knife''.
* {{Retired Badass}}: As of the final act, she's done with field work.
* TookALevelInBadass: [[spoiler: Moneypenny]] has scarcely been seen ''outside of her office'' before, much less working as Bond's partner in the field, to say nothing of firing a gun in combat.
