* ChekhovsGunman: Played with regarding [[spoiler:Mallory. GenreSavvy viewers will be able to work out that he's being set up for something, so it's heavily suggested he's a MoleInCharge to throw us off the scent as to how Silva gets into MI6's systems. In fact, he's destined to be the replacement for M.]]

** Finally, he has [[spoiler:Bond's CoolCar]] blown up, even though at this point it posed no threat. [[FridgeLogic Although it's very likely he did this to prevent Bond and M using it as a means of escape.]]

Added DiffLines:

* 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.

* 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]]).
