* VillainousCheekbones:
** Dr. No has a pair that keep the patter of his smooth, seemingly hairless head.
** The capungo in ''Goldfinger'' has recognizably "Aztec cheekbones".

* RealMenTakeItBlack: In the books Bond, unlike almost [[SpotOfTea every other British person in the universe]], ''hates'' tea, preferring black coffee. In an obvious AuthorTract, Bond calls tea the ''opium of the masses'' and blames it in part for the fall of the British Empire for reasons he doesn't go into.

** In the early novels, we are given the impression that Bond has worked for the Secret Service since "before" [=WW2=] (indeed, the Soviet's file on Bond in ''From Russia With Love'' states that he joined the Service in 1938). This is retconned by Bond's obituary (and official biography) in ''You Only Live Twice'', according to which Bond enlisted in the Royal Navy in 1941 as a teenager, and only joined the Service after the war. This leads to some strange results in the modern novels - ''Literature/YoungBond'' takes his birth year as 1920 to line up with the dates mentioned in the first books, but ''Solo'' has him turning 45 in 1969, consistent on ''Literature/YouOnlyLiveTwice'''s birth year of 1924. Efforts to make [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_James_Bond_novels_and_short_stories#Fictional_chronologies an overarching fictional chronology]] also run into the problem of Fleming's occasionally erratic or contradictory mention of historical events that conflict with the novel's logical setting.

Since Fleming died, other authors have continued the series. These authors include Kingsley Amis (under the pseudonym Robert Markham), John Gardner, Raymond Benson, Sebastian Faulks and Jeffery Deaver. There is also a series about a [[Literature/YoungBond Young James Bond]] and one about Moneypenny, called ''The Moneypenny Diaries''. TheBBC have also adapted a number of the original Fleming novels into radio dramas starring Creator/TobyStephens, which are [[TruerToTheText more straightforward adaptations of the novels]] than the EON films.
