* GroinAttack: Bond is interrogated by Le Chiffre with a carpet beater, which is used for this purpose. Le Chiffre notes in his typically detached way that the true ''beauty'' of such torture is not just the pain (which the brain blocks out after a while), but the psychological element that the thought of spending the rest of his life as less of a man brings to the victim.

* HonorBeforeReason: This is the probably best description that can be applied [[spoiler:the SMERSH agent who kills Le Chiffre but spares the helpless Bond. It's not out of any personal code of ethics, but rather just because his superiors hadn't ''ordered'' him to do anything besides punish Le Chiffre, throwing a bit of BotheringByTheBook into the mix. Bond even notes that the man will probably be raked over the coals by his superiors when he gets back to Russia.]]

* PunchClockVillain: Bond notes that actual Soviet spies are just that, spies, essentially white collar workers and bureaucrats just doing a job. He reserves his hatred from SMERSH, the Soviets' loyalty enforcement and assassination division.

* [[Film/CasinoRoyale1967 The 1967 version]] was an unholy mess of a spoof, with no less than 8 Bonds (9 including Creator/SeanConnery, who does not appear but receives a ShoutOut) and almost as many directors. Logic is paid little heed in the pursuit of comedy. Notably, it includes David Niven as the one-and-only original Sir James Bond -- Niven was Fleming's first choice for the part before Connery made it his own -- as well as Ursula Andress's second appearance in a Bond movie, this time as both the Bond girl and James Bond. It also starred Creator/WoodyAllen as young Jimmy Bond (his "disappointing" nephew), Creator/PeterSellers as Evelyn Tremble a.k.a. James Bond, and OrsonWelles as Le Chiffre.

* CompressedAdaptation: The relationship between Vesper/Valerie and Bond is greatly simplified, one of the effects of which is that the long final section portraying the increasing tensions between them and [[spoiler:her confession and suicide]] is completely omitted.
