* TheScrappy: Sheriff J. W. Pepper, to a certain extent, although this really set in for him after he reappeared in ''Film/TheManWithTheGoldenGun''. Amusingly the designer for Victory Games' RPG based on the franchise glommed onto the character for this reason: a lot of random encounter charts call for the sheriff to appear wherever the player characters are and attach himself to them in order to make their activities more difficult.

\n\n* [=Tearjerker=]: All of the abuse Solitaire endures at Kananga's hands; especially noteworthy is when he knocks her to the ground after having lost her abilities.
** Rosie's death. Treacherous as she was, she clearly did not appreciate what she had gotten herself in to and her fear at being killed proves to be very real at the end.
* TheWoobie: Solitaire, ''Good God''. Obligated to serve a cruel and possessive madman who constantly has her under his thumb just like her mother and grandmother before her, Solitaire is under constant threat of death if she were to ever go astray or to lose her divine powers by enjoying intimacy with anyone. And the only way she would be released from this commitment is if Kananga himself makes love to her. When she violates this pact by making love with Bond, an act he engineered in part just to get information out of her, Kananga smacks her down and condemns her to die. Terrified and unable to fight her way out alone, it's impossible not to feel sorry for her through her entire ordeal.

Added DiffLines:

** After her deflowering, [[GoodBadGirl Solitaire suddenly can't get enough sex with Bond]]. Years later, Creator/JaneSeymour stars in ''Film/WeddingCrashers'' as the more sex-crazed Katherine Cleary. And bonus points, her husband William is played by Creator/ChristopherWalken, who played Max Zorin in ''Film/AViewToAKill'', which was Creator/RogerMoore's last Bond film.

Added DiffLines:

* SoOkayItsAverage: Generally considered a campy and rather stereotypical period piece that is lifted up by a suspenseful plot driven by Roger Moore and Jane Seymour's standout performances.

* {{Bowdlerization}}: As discussed [[http://thebondologistblog.blogspot.com/2012/08/james-bond-novels-that-were-edited.html here]], several of Fleming's less-sensitive moments were changed or deleted outright when this book first hit the United States.

* SugarWiki/AwesomeMusic: That Paul [=McCartney=] title theme. Whoa. So much so that Music/GunsNRoses did a cover of it.

* FairForItsDay: ''Live and Let Die'' was Ian Fleming's second 007 novel (1954) - while the book's narrative and the black dialect Bond hears in Harlem read pretty cringe-worthy, he observes that a typical young couple in the restaurant he goes to is interested in the same things as everyone else in the world, and is glad "they're not genteel about it". Mister Big himself notes that blacks have made major contributions to many human endeavors, and aims to be the first black super-criminal. Also, during Bond's initial briefing, even M (a hidebound reactionary even by the standards of the time) says that Mr. Big or someone like him was inevitable.

Mister Big himself notes that blacks have made major contributions to many human endeavors, and aims to be the first black super-criminal. Felix Leiter is also openly accepting of blacks and even reminds Bond to be less rude when referring to them.

** [[DamselInDistress For her faults]], Solitaire is often considered as one of the most beautiful Bond girls in the franchise. No small feat
