* EliteMooks: In the last 4th of the game your enemies are soldiers with body armor and military-grade firearms, who can take 2 to 3 times as much damage as the thugs and private security you've been fighting for most of the game.

* HeroInsurance: [[AvertedTrope Averted.]] After your building-shattering car chase through UsefulNotes/{{Bangkok}}, the Police try to hunt you down. [[spoiler:Intel in an earlier level indicates Rak has bought them out, though, so they'd have been chasing you anyway.]]

* SequelHook: Either through accident or design, the game dovetails nicely into ''Film/{{Skyfall}}'' and ''Film/{{Spectre}}'', especially given the ending with [[spoiler: Nicole telling Bond that everything she did, she did for a man, who is 'everywhere' and has more reach than even MI6. Now whether that could be translated as Nicole's lover being in fact Raoul Silva, or even ''his'' ManBehindTheMan, Oberhauser (aka Blofeld) is unknown, but it certainly fits Oberhauser's typical methods to a T]]. Of course, it's entirely possible the creators left it deliberately open-ended and ambiguous [[BatmanGambit on the gamble that it would retroactively make sense.]]

* ThirdPersonShooter: Interestingly, of the four ''Bond'' video games released by Activision in UsefulNotes/{{the seventh generation|OfConsoleVideoGames}} (''Film/QuantumOfSolace'', ''VideoGame/GoldenEyeWii'', this game, and ''VideoGame/DoubleOhSevenLegends''), it's the only one to primarily be a third-person affair - the others are all FirstPersonShooter[=s=] with, at best, a third-person cover system.
* WomenDrivers: Nicole lets Bond drive her car, saying "I feel much safer with a man behind the wheel." She later admits that she has wrecked every car she's ever owned. (Of course, Bond is even more of a CaptainCrash than she is.)

** Also applies to the increasingly unlikely appearances of Aston Martins for Bond to commandeer (especially since 3 apparently separate [=DBSs=] have the same number plate: The one used in the tutorial level taken from outside Greco's hiding spot, Nicole's friend's DBS in Siberia, and presumably Bond's own in the epilogue.)

* XtremeKoolLetterz: A lot of Greek letters interchanged for English ones. For example, the opening sequences lists the city you're in as "ΛTHΣNδ", which would actually read "[=LTHSNd=]" instead of "ATHENS."

* GreaterScopeVillain: [[spoiler: Nicole reveals at the end that someone who is "everywhere" and "bigger than MI:6" was the real mastermind behind the entire plot, but is gunned down by a remote-controlled drone before revealing a name. This was a SequelHook that was never picked up, but given the events of ''Film/{{Spectre}}'' it could be fair to assume it was Ernst Stavro Blofeld, who fits Nicole's description incredibly well.]]

* NonIndicativeName: Along with a non-indicative title sequence - the main plot has zilch to do with conflict diamonds.

* NonIndicativeName: Along with a non-indicative title sequence - the main plot has zilch to do with conflict diamonds. The closest connection is that Nicole's jewelry designs frequently use large bright red gemstones, but that is barely even a plot point.
