* ThereIsNoKillLikeOverkill: His solution to James Bond pursuing him as [[spoiler:he escapes from [=MI6's=] underground HQ? Drop a freaking train on him.]] Of course, given how most incarnations have survived almost everything from stray bullets to heart failure, it's a case of GenreSavvy.

* 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.

* DragonLady: Depressingly subverted. She very much looks the part (to the point where her actress drew inspiration from Xenia Onatopp, TheBaroness from ''Film/{{GoldenEye}}''), but is actually a terrified non-combatant former SexSlave who tries a HeelFaceTurn to get away from Silva [[spoiler:and ends up with a bullet hole in the face for her trouble]].

Added DiffLines:

*NoCelebritiesWereHarmed: A blond man that exposes the covers of undercover intelligence operatives? Sounds and looks similar to Julian Assange.

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.]]
