* 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.]]


Added DiffLines:

* 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.

->'''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.

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

Chairman of
Albert Finney

An old gamekeeper who still keeps up Skyfall,
the British Parliament's Intelligence and Security Committee and formerly a Lieutenant Colonel Bond family estate in the SAS.Scotland.



* BadassBureaucrat: He's [[spoiler:initially]] a Member of Parliament and he works at a desk, but don't think he's a pushover.
* BaitAndSwitchTyrant: Early on, he seems to be an obstruction to M and Co., and before Silva shows up there's even a bit of {{fauxshadowing}} that [[RedHerring makes it seem like he might be be behind the attacks on MI6]].
* BigGood: [[spoiler:He takes M's place after she dies.]]
* {{Deadpan Snarker}}: Particularly in ''{{Film/Spectre}}''.
* EveryoneHasStandards: He unapologetically believes that M should be called to account for her handling of the crisis, but is visibly disgusted when it becomes clear that the actual committee hearing is basically nothing more than a KangarooCourt.
-->'''Mallory:''' [[DeadpanSnarker For the sake of variety might we actually hear from the witness?]]
* JerkassHasAPoint: In the beginning when he's in ObstructiveBureaucrat mode, at least, when he shuts down M's objections to being summoned to meet him:
-->'''M:''' Forgive me, but why am I here?\\
'''Mallory:''' Three months ago you lost a computer drive containing the identity of almost every NATO agent embedded in terrorist organizations across the globe. A list, which in the eyes of our allies, never existed. So, if you'll forgive ''me'', I think you ''know'' why you're here.
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: While he may be a bit harsh towards M, there's no doubt that Mallory is just doing his job.
* LegacyCharacter: [[spoiler:Becomes the new M after the death of Judi Dench's character.]]
* ObstructiveBureaucrat: In his conversations with M he initially appears to be some arrogant pencil pusher that will get in her way of catching the bad guys.
* ReasonableAuthorityFigure: M screwed up and he wants her to be held accountable. Nothing odd there.
* RetiredBadass: He's an ex-SAS colonel who was once held hostage for three months by the IRA.
* TakingTheBullet: When Silva attacks the inquiry hearing, Mallory instinctively jumps a railing. Seeing Silva about to shoot M with his pistol, Mallory pushes her to the ground and takes a bullet in his left arm. He's seen wearing a sling for the remainder of the movie.
* TookALevelInBadass: Twice. First, when Silva attacks the hearing, he pushes M down and takes a bullet from Silva's pistol. After a few more bailiffs get shot, Mallory breaks cover, runs across the room while under fire from Silva and a henchman, grabs a dead bailiff's pistol, and manages to kill the henchman. He later approves Q and Tanner's breaking of the regulations and put out tracking devices for Silva.
