* BatScare: A few of the DisturbedDoves in the 1980s films are this (such as in ''Film/ForYourEyesOnly'', where Bond is climbing the mountain and the doves come out of a hole). This is a trademark of director John Glen, who directed all five of the Bond films in the 80s, from ''Film/ForYourEyesOnly'' to ''Film/LicenseToKill''.

** The Craig films appear to have done this with an entire ''organization''. ''Film/CasinoRoyale2006'' and ''Film/QuantumOfSolace'' featured Bond against a shadowy organization called Quantum. It was initially announced that the Quantum story would play out in a trilogy of films (much like SPECTRE was the prime focus of ''Thunderball'', ''You Only Live Twice'' and ''On Her Majesty's Secret Service''). Perhaps due to the lukewarm response to ''Film/QuantumOfSolace'', the Quantum trilogy idea was dropped and ''Skyfall'' takes place some years later with no further reference made to it. As it is, the producers have finally regained the copyright ownership of Ernest Stavro Blofeld and SPECTRE, the latter (at least) being used again in the upcoming ''Spectre''

** Well, they ''are'' rated PG-13. There was a famous sequence in ''A View to a Kill'' where Creator/ChristopherWalken mowed down dozens of employees with an AK, and they didn't even use squibs.

* FamousNamedForeigner: The KGB Chief is called [[Creator/NikolaiGogol Gogol]], and his second's name is [[Creator/AlexanderPushkin Pushkin]].



* MeaningfulName: KGB-Chief is called [[Creator/NikolaiGogol Gogol]]. His second's name is [[Creator/AlexanderPushkin Pushkin]]. For anyone with a degree in literature, they might as well have an AwesomeMcCoolName.

* FollowTheLeader: The films have been unquestionable trendsetters, being copied, imitated and parodied forever. But for all the enormous influence thay've exerted on Western pop culture, Bond films are unabashed practicioners of this trope as well. This has gone from copying [[{{Film/LiveAndLetDie}} blaxplotation]] films during the early [[TheSeventies 70's]], the [[{{Film/Moonraker}} Star Wars craze]] later that same decade, the [[{{Film/LicenceToKill}} Die Hard-Lethal Weapon grittiness]] of the late [[TheEighties 80's]], the [[{{Film/DieAnotherDay}} high-tech, fast-paced takes]] at the TurnOfTheMillennium and the [[{{Film/QuantumOfSolace}} Jason-Bournesque]] style at the end of the 00's.

* 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'').
