* TheGreatPoliticsMessUp: A DownplayedTrope example and also a FunnyAneurysm moment. The book has a running theme about how the Red Chinese are a bigger danger to the West than the Soviet Union and how eventually both the uSSR as well as the West will probably team up against in the future. Cue 1972 with Richard Nixon visiting China...

* WriterOnBoard: Kingsley Amis was significantly softer on Soviet communism than Ian Fleming, to say the least. Becomes HilariousInHindsight he predicted a thawing of Soviet and Western relations while an escalation of Chinese-Western tensions. Cue Nixon's visit to China...

** The head of the Greek KGB branch is a pedophile.


Added DiffLines:

* InsaneTrollLogic: The KGB doesn't remove the head of the Greek branch despite the fact he's a pedophile because such a horrifying secret means he can't be blackmailed on the basis of his superiors already knowing something so incredibly awful. Yeah.


Added DiffLines:

** The head of the Greek KGB branch thinks he'll be able to trick James Bond into a trap which will kill him--ignoring that he's a minor functionary and he's James Bond.

* {{Expy}}: Colonel Sun, like Doctor No, is one for Fu Manchu.


Added DiffLines:

* SmugSnake: Colonel Sun turns out to be not nearly the ice-cold badass he pretends to be--see VillainousBreakdown.


Added DiffLines:

* VillainousBreakdown: Colonel Sun has an unconventional one when Bond escapes. He says that he expected torturing Bond to make him feel like a god but it actually just made him feel sick and horrified at him. James Bond, antihero that he is, isn't inclined to show any mercy to the Colonel.

* DirtyCommunists: Colonel Sun himself is a part of the [[RedChina Chinese]] branch of this trope. An interesting subversion occurs in the fact that Bond allies with the GRU agent Ariadne to stop him.

* InterserviceRivalry: One of the many reasons that Alexandra isn't believed when shes tries to warn about the imminent attack on the Soviet meeting is that she's reporting to a KGB representative, who doesn't take her seriously as she's a GRU agent.
