** James Bond starts off being intentionally portrayed as a cold and ruthless ProfessionalKiller. Over the course of the novels, though, he becomes more caring and heroic.

* ThrowItIn: Bond originally drove a Bentley, which was destroyed in ''Literature/{{Moonraker}}''. As Ian Fleming was working on ''Literature/{{Goldfinger}}'', he recieved a letter saying "I hope you have the decency to fix Bond up with a decent bit of machinery - I would suggest an Aston Martin". The Aston went on to become ''the'' iconic Bond car. He switched Bond's WeaponOfChoice from a somewhat underpowered .25ACP Beretta to the iconic Walther PPK in similar circumstances, even partially basing the initial characterisation of Q on the author of the letter.
** Fleming was also impressed enough by SeanConnery's performance in the movies that he made Bond canonically Scottish.

* DeadMansTriggerFinger: Hoo boy. Whenever a mook dies, and if he's holding an automatic weapon, chances are it'll keep firing until the ammo runs out.

* FoodPorn: Since the original books were written shortly after the UsefulNotes/WorldWarII, a lot of the exquisite and fancy food would be the stuff of fantasies for the people reading it. There's even a whole paragraph on Bond eating an avocado pear! The high point is possibly the lovingly described meal that Bond and M eat at M's club in ''{{Literature/Moonraker}}''.

** Subverted in ''{{Literature/Thunderball}}'', in which Bond and Leiter dine in a Bahamian restaurant in which the food is lovingly described on the menu in fancy prose, but Leiter gloomily predicts that it'll probably be crap. [[spoiler: It is, but they eat it anyway because they're hungry.]]
