** Aside from Bond's endless coldly wasting {{Mooks}} with the only emotion registering usually being amusement, he doesn't treat women much better: he all but rapes Solitaire in ''Film/LiveAndLetDie'', prior to that he practically raped his poor nurse Patricia Fearing in ''Thunderball'' as well as Pussy Galore in ''Goldfinger'' and ''Film/DiamondsAreForever'' begins with him strangling a woman with her own bikini top.

* 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/DrNo'').

* ChummyCommies: In one of the series' ultimate ironies, Bond, one of the prototypical Cold War Warriors, teams up with the USSR in an EnemyMine situation more often than working directly against them. In fact, ''Film/ForYourEyesOnly'' and the pre-titles of ''Film/GoldenEye'' are the only times ''in the entire series'' where the USSR is outright antagonistic, and not a fellow UnwittingPawn that 007 must make a hasty alliance with in order to save the world.

In both ''Film/TheSpyWhoLovedMe'' (USSR) and ''TomorrowNeverDies'' (China), he even works together with a female communist agent to save the day.
