* DeadpanSnarker: On finding his mistress being held hostage, having James Bond get the drop on him and ending up roughly thrown around the room until he ends up prone with a gun in his face, his response is:
-->'''Pushkin:''' I take it this is not a social call, 007.

* AintTooProudToBeg: [[spoiler: Just before falling to his death, he pleads shortly for his life. By far not enough to compromise his badassery though.]]

* CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass: Pretends to be an ignorant peasant so he will not be executed on the spot by guards. Actually learned, literate and exceptionally well-spoken.

* RenegadeRussian: A former {{KGB}} assassin.

* RenegadeRussian: A former {{KGB}} assassin. Though, given that he says that he worked ''with'' the Russians, he might not actually be Russian himself (his actor is German, and "Necros" is Greek for "death").

* DirtyCommunists: Implied. He mentions he has comrades "struggling for world revolution" who depend upon him, and Whitaker notes that his "comrades" are people he sells weapons to. Notably, he does ''not'' work for the Soviet Union, as he is worried that if he [[spoiler: assassinates Pushkin]] they will recognise his handiwork and come after them, so he is probably a member of an extremist group in another country.



%%* TheDragon
* DragonInChief: Once Necros is killed, there's no one stopping Bond from foiling the villains' plans by destroying the heroin. Sure, [[spoiler: Koskov and Whittaker]] had to be caught or killed, but the film could have easily ended with destroying the heroin.
