* StoutStrength: One of Silva's henchmen posing as one of Severine's "bodyguards" is a rather burly Oddjob-lookalike who puts up a fairly decent fight, although Bond succeeds in landing more blows than he does.

** However, ''Spectre'' went on to expand on Bond's backstory further and bridge his family details together more clearly.

** The French song that plays on Silva's island, "Boum!", sung by Charles Trenet prior to WorldWar2. It is mostly about nature, love, and thunder. The titular "BOOM" onomatopoeia in the song also refers to cannon fire from the Maginot Line (where he sung for French troops), albeit on a joyful tone.

*** The scene where [[spoiler: Silva is stabbed in the back]] takes place in a church, similar to FYEO.

* AdaptationalAttractiveness: Q, no longer the cantankerous old man that Desmond Llewellyn portrayed or JohnCleese for ''Die Another Day'' or ''[[VideoGame/EverythingorNothing Everything or Nothing]]'' but the young and nerdy Creator/BenWhishaw, in the "attractive HollywoodNerd" sense.

* {{Badass}}:
** Bond, as usual, as we see him jumping off motorcycles onto moving trains, single-handedly blowing up helicopters with gas canisters and so on.
** BigBad Silva, who hacks MI6 just to humiliate them, crashes a Tube train as a distraction and flies military helicopters into the middle of Scotland.
** Eve, during the pre-credits (she [[spoiler: does take the shot, after all]]).

''Skyfall'', the 23rd film in the Film/JamesBond franchise, also marks the 50th anniversary of the film series and the third film to star Creator/DanielCraig as Bond. After languishing for years in DevelopmentHell following the financial problems of distributor MGM, the Creator/SamMendes-directed film finally saw release in 2012.

* WhatHappenedToTheMouse: Kincade's dogs aren't seen after the scene where he first appears. We hear them barking as Silva's henchmen approach for the final confrontation.
** Similarly, there's no mention of Quantum in the film, even though they were the BiggerBad of the two previous films. Silva has no connection to them. [[spoiler:The next film, Film/{{Spectre}} reveals that Quantum, and even Silva, were connected to Spectre as seperate offshoots. Quantum itself was largely disassembled by then, largely ending with Mr. White's radiation poisoning and suicide]].
