\n* WrittenByCastMember: Creator/DanielCraig has enjoyed much creative input in the writing of his character, unlike the previous actors. He also helped director Marc Forster to flesh out the script of ''Film/QuantumOfSolace'' when the Writers Strike troubled the movie's production.

** ''Film/{{Spectre}}'' once again puts the classic gunbarrel back at the start of the movie like it used to before ''Casino Royale''. This time Craig doesn't conceal the gun while walking. It also fades to black before fading into the opening sequence, rather than the typical "gunbarrel widens to reveal opening scene".

It also holds steady and then fades to black before fading into the opening sequence, rather than the typical "gunbarrel shifts from left to right then widens to reveal opening scene".

* CashCowFranchise: The second-highest grossing film franchise ever (behind the ''Film/HarryPotter'' films), thanks to also being one of the [[LongRunner longest running]] ones.

* CreatorBreakdown: Fleming was notable for being a ''very'' heavy smoker and drinker, both which killed him at the age of 56. Interestingly, he seems to have noted the toll his addiction was taking on him throughout the Blofeld Trilogy. ''Literature/{{Thunderball}}'' opens with Bond failing a medical (a thinly veiled copy of Fleming's own) and being sent to a health farm (something that Fleming himself was ordered by his doctor to do). He later tells Moneypenny "I would rather die of drink than of thirst" which was reputedly a favorite line of Fleming's to anyone who told him to stop drinking. By ''Literature/OnHerMajestysSecretService'', Bond admits that he ''needs'' three drinks for every one that Tracy drinks, and confesses to having tried and failed multiple times to quit the mountainous amount of cigarettes that he gets through (according to friends, this was a fair piece of self-reflection by Fleming). And ''Literature/YouOnlyLiveTwice'' shows Bond as a depressed, drunken shadow of a man due to [[spoiler: Tracy's death.]]

* FollowTheLeader: The films have been unquestionable trendsetters, being copied, imitated and parodied forever. But for all the enormous influence thay've exerted on Western pop culture, Bond films are unabashed practicioners of this trope as well. This has gone from copying [[{{Film/LiveAndLetDie}} blaxplotation]] films during the early [[TheSeventies 70's]], the [[{{Film/Moonraker}} Star Wars craze]] later that same decade, the [[{{Film/LicenceToKill}} Die Hard-Lethal Weapon grittiness]] of the late [[TheEighties 80's]], the [[{{Film/DieAnotherDay}} high-tech, fast-paced takes]] at the TurnOfTheMillennium and the [[{{Film/QuantumOfSolace}} Jason-Bournesque]] style at the end of the 00's.

* MeanCharacterNiceActor: For a cold-blooded killer and womanizer, Bond has been played by [[Creator/RogerMoore humanitarian activists]], [[Creator/PierceBrosnan devoted family men]], and [[Creator/TimothyDalton easygoing charmers]] (with the exception of Creator/GeorgeLazenby, who then had a case of SmallNameBigEgo).

* OneHitWonder: George Lazenby's only claim to fame is having played Bond in just one film in the series (OnHerMajestysSecretService), which has been considered as one of the canon's best.

Added DiffLines:

* KilledByRequest: Creator/SeanConnery equally hated the character of and playing James Bond. He wanted to have him killed off not only so he wouldn't have to play him ever again, but so that he wouldn't have to hear or see about him ever again, either.
