* CoDragons: Dario, Perez and Braun. Sanchez trusts each one implicitly and they all three seem to hold the same amount of authority in his organization.



* TheDragon: Heller and Dario.
** DragonWithAnAgenda: Heller.



* FauxAffablyEvil: Sanchez is a hospitable enough guy that you almost forget that in other scenes, he whips Lupe with a stingray, has a guy's heart literally cut out, had Della Leiter raped and killed, [[SharkPool feeds Felix Leiter to a shark]], and [[YourHeadAsplode shoves Krest into a decompression chamber]] (after being tricked into thinking that Krest had betrayed him).

to:

** Sanchez himself explains to Krest at one point that loyalty means more to him than money, explaining why he [[PragmaticVillainy pays]] Killifer the money he promised him. So, brutish murderer and drug kingpin though he is, Sanchez clearly values the loyalty of his underlings and will reward it ''very'' well. But cross him and you're dead meat.

* ForkliftFu: Heller is impaled on a forklift by Sanchez.

* ForkliftFu: Heller is impaled on a forklift by Sanchez.Braun.



* PragmaticVillainy: Sanchez promises money to whoever springs him. The greedy Killifer obliges. Once they're safely away from the authorities, Krest suggests "deep-sixing" Killifer, but Sanchez forbids it; he pays Killifer what he promised rather than killing him, chiding Krest, "Loyalty is more important to me than money."



* PresidentForLife: Hector Lopez, the "president"[[note]]Sanchez is the actual ruler[[/note]] of the BananaRepublic of Isthmus. Sanchez uses this line as a threat that means -- if he doesn't cooperate, "for life" means "until I no longer approves of you being the puppet president".

** The film lifts Felix Leiter's shark attack from the novel ''Literature/LiveAndLetDie''... the movie version of which starred David Hedison as Leiter.

* MyGodWhatHaveIDone: He doesn't say it, but it's hinted by Bond's mild HeroicBSOD reaction after Pam tells him that Sanchez has acquired Stinger missiles and is threatening to shoot down a civilian airliner in retaliation for the DEA arresting him. Furthermore, Bond's assassination attempt spooked the potential [[TheMole Mole]] that Pam was trying to persuade to help get them off Sanchez. Notably, whereas up to that point his focus has pretty much been 'make Sanchez dead ASAP', his goals broaden to include dismantling Sanchez's entire operation while he's at it.

** Also includes probably the smartest BondOneLiner; At ErnestHemingway's house, when Bond is asked to hand over his gun, "I guess this is [[Literature/AFarewellToArms a farewell to arms]]."

* OnlyAlmostDead: How Bond finds Felix in his house, as Sanchez had only meant to leave him horribly maimed to suffer the loss of his leg and his wife. Only Bond's arrival keeps Felix from expiring.
