* PlotBasedPhotographObfuscation: The photo Bond looks at early on in the film features him as a boy with the older Oberhauser and the face of the other boy has been burned away. This foreshadows the relationship between Bond and Franz, as Franz retains a whole copy of the photo.

* MsFanservice: Considering the actress' age, she's 50 years old, the oldest woman Bond has ever seduced onscreen by far, and she can still rock a merrywidow-and-garters ensemble.
* RomancingTheWidow: [[spoiler:Bond doesn't let things like grief get in the way of his advances.]]

* WidowsWeeds: Right down to her underwear. Fitting, as she's (ostensibly) grieving for her dead husband.

* CoolTeacher: Taught skiing and climbing to Bond when he was in his teens.
* GoodParents: Hannes regarded an orphaned 007 as a second son, making him the GreaterScopeParagon to James.
* GoryDiscretionShot: While his death was done offscreen long before the events of ''Spectre'', the article also shows that Hannes was crushed to his death in the staged avalanche.
* GreaterScopeParagon: Became a ParentalSubstitute and mentor to a young 007, and 007 still holds him in high regards.
* HorribleJudgeOfCharacter: Hannes encouraged Franz to refer Bond as his younger brother, unaware that Franz was secretly bitter about this. After Bond moved out, Franz kills his own father in a staged avalanche out of pure malice.
* LikeASonToMe: After 007 lost his parents in a climbing accident, Hannes adopted him and began treating him like a second son. This causes Franz to be bitter about this, and [[{{Patricide}} kills him]] [[DrivenByEnvy out of envy]], before faking his death and creating Spectre.
* LikeFatherUnlikeSon: If we're going by the newspaper article about Hannes' death, it's shown that he was very nice towards his neighbors and son. He's a stark contrast to Franz, who later became to be a totally violent and psychopathic monster.
* MentorArchetype: Bond still held him in high regards even after his death, and was visibly angered when Franz told him that he committed {{Patricide}}.
* MinorMajorCharacter: He taught climbing and skiing in Kitzbühel before taking temporary custody of the young James Bond following the death of his parents in a climbing accident.
* NiceGuy: Implied to be the case, as the newspaper article shows that he was nice to his family and neighbors, and a stark contrast to his son, who turned out to be sociopathic.
* ParentalFavoritism: Franz resented his father caring for Bond. Bitter about this, he kills his own father out of nothing but a pure desire to be favored more than 007. And this is the main reason why Franz, now calling himself Blofeld, refers to Bond as a [[AnimalMetaphor "cuckoo hatching inside another bird's nest"]]. It doesn't excuse Franz of his crimes or his general villainy, [[FreudianExcuse but it gives a legitimate reason why]] he held [[ItsPersonal an enormous]] but totally IrrationalHatred of Bond. Blofeld blames his father for creating a wedge between him and Bond, but it was obviously the other way around.
* ParentalObliviousness: He didn't have the faintest clue that his son was plotting to kill him for showing ParentalFavoritism towards Bond.
* ParentalSubstitute: Adopted Bond after he lost his parents in a climbing accident. Bond regarded him as a substitute father.
* PlotTriggeringDeath: While Hannes was long dead, this also triggered the CainAndAbel relationship between Franz and James in later years.
* PosthumousCharacter: He was already dead by the time ''Spectre'' takes place, but his role formulated the CainAndAbel relationship between 007 and Blofeld in later years, and indirectly shaped the events of ''Film/CasinoRoyale2006'', ''Film/QuantumOfSolace'', ''Film/{{Skyfall}}'' and ''Film/{{Spectre}}''.
* RelatedInTheAdaptation: He was an Austrian climbing and skiing instructor in ''Literature/OctopussyAndTheLivingDaylights'', but is Bond's foster father prior to the events of ''Spectre''.
* SmallRoleBigImpact: While he's dead by the time ''Spectre'' takes place, it's shown that much of the film's plot occurred because Hannes showed ParentalFavoritism towards Bond after he was orphaned, causing Franz to kill him out of jealousy. His death also indirectly shaped the events of ''Film/CasinoRoyale2006'', ''Film/QuantumOfSolace'', and ''Film/{{Skyfall}}''
* StrongFamilyResemblance: The newspaper article about his death shows Blofeld sharing some of his father's facial features.
* UnwittingInstigatorOfDoom: Showing ParentalFavoritism towards Bond is what caused Franz to kill him out of jealousy by murdering him in a staged avalanche and become a DiabolicalMastermind.
* WeHardlyKnewYe: He's mentioned in a newspaper article regarding his death, an adoption letter that allowed Bond's aunt Charmain to grant Hannes temporary custodianship of a young James, alongside Franz giving his MotiveRant on why he killed his father.

* DiabolicalMastermind: C is in charge of a proposed merger of MI5 and MI6, but [[spoiler:uses it as a cover to give control of his "Nine Eyes" surveillance plan to Blofeld, which would further enable Blofeld to humiliate 007.]]



* HateSink: Since Ernst Stavro Blofeld represents EvilIsCool for the ''Film/JamesBond'' franchise and is the TropeCodifier for RightHandCat, BlofeldPloy and DiabolicalMastermind, not to mention being [[MagnificentBastard intelligent]], WickedCultured, and [[FauxAffablyEvil having idle banter with 007 despite planning to kill him]], but swift and deadly toward henchmen that fail him and driven by greed. Plus, having inspired many villains such as [[WesternAnimation/InspectorGadget Dr. Claw]], [[Franchise/{{Pokemon}} Giovanni]], [[Franchise/StarWars Emperor Palpatine]], [[ComicBook/{{Superman}} Lex Luthor]], and [[Film/AustinPowers Dr. Evil]] over the years gives many a reason to root for him. Plus, [[TheDragon Mr. Hinx]] has a CoolCar and is a mix of Oddjob's endurance, Jaws' strength and metal combat implants (fingernails instead of teeth) and Red Grant's methodical skills and cunning, as well as dogging Bond throughout the film. WordOfGod also notes that he was inspired by Franchise/TheTerminator when helping develop the character. Also, Mr. White is given a sympathetic backstory as to why he resigned from SPECTRE. So who do we hate in the film? Well, perhaps because of just how cool Blofeld, Mr. Hinx, and SPECTRE are, the viewer can see Max Denbigh as the movie's Hate Sink. From the start, he's an [[TyrantTakesTheHelm oily new superior]] who [[PoliticallyIncorrectVillain expresses ignorant opinions on hot-button real-world issues]] [[spoiler:and furthermore, is a terrorist himself]]. And from the moment the audience learns he's a [[PrivateMilitaryContractors civilian contractor]] placed in charge of a merger between [=MI5=] and [=MI6=], [[TyrantTakesTheHelm we know he's going to be trouble]], and he proves it by acting like a SmugSnake to Bond and M and [[DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything advocating the replacement of human agents with]] {{Attack Drone}}s and [[BigBrotherIsWatching mass surveillance]]. It's later revealed that [[spoiler: he isn't just a corrupt sleazeball to begin with he's flat-out evil as [[BigBadDuumvirate he's in cahoots with Blofeld]] and plans to turn control of the new surveillance system he's designing over to him. At the end of the film, he suffers a KarmicDeath when he plummets to the bottom of the headquarters of the merged intelligence service, which he had paid for with SPECTRE blood money]]. It's easy to see why he has few fans both InUniverse and out.

Plus, having inspired many villains such as [[WesternAnimation/InspectorGadget Dr. Claw]], [[Franchise/{{Pokemon}} Giovanni]], [[Franchise/StarWars Emperor Palpatine]], [[ComicBook/{{Superman}} Lex Luthor]], and [[Film/AustinPowers Dr. Evil]] over the years gives many a reason to root for him. Plus, [[TheDragon Mr. Hinx]] has a CoolCar and is a mix of Oddjob's endurance, Jaws' strength and metal combat implants (fingernails instead of teeth) and Red Grant's methodical skills and cunning, as well as dogging Bond throughout the film. WordOfGod also notes that he was inspired by Franchise/TheTerminator when helping develop the character. Also, Mr. White is given a sympathetic backstory as to why he resigned from SPECTRE. So who do we hate in the film? Well, perhaps because of just how cool Blofeld, Mr. Hinx, and SPECTRE are, the viewer can see Max Denbigh as the movie's Hate Sink. From the start, he's an [[TyrantTakesTheHelm oily new superior]] who [[PoliticallyIncorrectVillain expresses ignorant opinions on hot-button real-world issues]] [[spoiler:and furthermore, is a terrorist himself]]. And from the moment the audience learns he's a [[PrivateMilitaryContractors civilian contractor]] placed in charge of a merger between [=MI5=] and [=MI6=], [[TyrantTakesTheHelm we know he's going to be trouble]], and he proves it by acting like a SmugSnake to Bond and M and [[DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything advocating the replacement of human agents with]] {{Attack Drone}}s and [[BigBrotherIsWatching mass surveillance]]. It's later revealed that [[spoiler: he [[spoiler:he isn't just a corrupt sleazeball to begin with he's flat-out evil as [[BigBadDuumvirate he's in cahoots with Blofeld]] and plans to turn control of the new surveillance system he's designing over to him. At the end of the film, he suffers a KarmicDeath when he plummets to the bottom of the headquarters of the merged intelligence service, which he had paid for with SPECTRE blood money]]. It's easy to see why he has few fans both InUniverse and out.



* HobbesWasRight: [[spoiler:Best exemplified by this quote below once he's revealed to be a Spectre henchman. He believes democracy is a total failure and thinks that only totalitarianism and BigBrotherIsWatching will solve all of the world's problems.]]

* {{Irony}}: At one point, M questions his surveillance plan's ability to deal with morally difficult situations, wondering if someone who just sits with such technology would be capable of pulling a trigger and killing someone. Later, when [[spoiler:Denbigh does pull a gun on M, it's not lack of willing that stops him from shooting but that M's more hands-on field approach enabled him to sweep the room and empty Denbigh's gun]] before he got there.
* ItsAllAboutMe: An arrogant scumbag, he doesn't care for anyone except himself, believing his surveillance idea is the future and scoffs at anybody who criticizes him.

* KarmicDeath: [[spoiler:Being the movie's HateSink, it's no surprise that he received this at the end, when he was revealed to be TheMole for Blofeld.]] From the start, he's an oily new superior who [[PoliticallyIncorrectVillain expresses ignorant opinions on hot-button real-world issues]] [[spoiler:and furthermore, is a terrorist himself]]. A [[PrivateMilitaryContractors sleazeball]] placed in charge of a merger between [=MI5=] and [=MI6=], [[TyrantTakesTheHelm 007 knows he's going to be trouble]], and he proves it by acting like a SmugSnake to M by [[DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything advocating the replacement of human agents with]] {{Attack Drone}}s and [[BigBrotherIsWatching mass surveillance]]. It's later revealed that [[spoiler:he isn't just a jerk to begin with he's flat-out evil as [[BigBadDuumvirate he's in cahoots with Blofeld]] and plans to turn control of the new surveillance system he's designing over to him. At the end of the film, he falls to his death while fighting M, which he had paid for with SPECTRE blood money]]. It's easy to see why he has few fans both InUniverse and out.

* ShadowArchetype: [[spoiler:He's revealed to be an EvilCounterpart of M as the viewer gets to know more about his rationale to shut down the 00-agent program in favor of the "Nine Eyes" surveillance program, which would give Blofeld unlimited backdoor access and destroy anybody who tries to meddle in his affairs, aside from further humiliating 007.]]
