* AdaptedOut: In many novels by Fleming, the villain is on the payroll of SMERSH, a Soviet anti-espionage organisation that seeks to undermine western powers at every opportunity. It wasn't until the ninth book that he introduced SPECTRE, a criminal organisation with no political ties (because he worried [[HilariousInHindsight Soviet villains would become dated]]). The films either make the villains independent entrepreneurs (see ''Film/{{Goldfinger}}'' or ''Film/LiveAndLetDie''), or outright change their SMERSH allegiance to SPECTRE instead (''Film/FromRussiaWithLove'', ''Film/DoctorNo'').

* MomentKiller: Bond's final romantic clinch with the Bond Girl is usually interrupted by either the bad guy or his henchman seeking a last bit of revenge, or by his superiors either trying to make sure he's still alive or pass on the hearty congratulations of some high-ranking official for saving the world again.

* MoodWhiplash: Very much so in the Brosnan era, but present in the Connery and Moore films too.
** There's a bit of it in ''Skyfall'' too, [[spoiler:especially at the end]].

** An ActionPrologue, often involving either Bond in action on a mission. Said mission will usually (but not always) have some connection, even if tangential, to the main plot of the movie or something which establishes the main villain's plot. Once that's out the way and something's blown up, we go to...
** The Opening Credits, often highly stylized and abstract, set to a catchy theme song by a major recording artist. Frequent motifs involve guns, beautiful women writhing about in semi-undress, playing cards and martinis, something thematically linked to the villain's plot or theme (lots of gold for ''Film/{{Goldfinger}}'' or oil to reflect the villain's oil-based plot in ''Film/TheWorldIsNotEnough'', for example) and Bond himself.

** Bond and the Bond Girl have a final romantic moment (Oh, ''James''...). Simultaneously, Bond's superiors may be trying to contact him either to make sure he's still alive or to pass on the hearty congratulations of some high-ranking official. This may or may not result in an inadvertent [[MomentKiller cock-blocking]] of the final romantic moment.
