!!Tiffany Case
[[quoteright:250:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/x66161383360522590_3007.jpg]]
[[caption-width-right:250:''"I don't dress for the hired help. Let's see your passport, Franks."'']]
->'''Played by:''' Jill St. John

An American diamond smuggler and thief whom Bond blackmails into helping him. She frequently finds herself bewildered by the web of lies and oddities that 007 weaves around her.
----
* TheDitz: Once she is kidnapped by Blofeld, she becomes inexplicably clumsy and stupid.
* FauxActionGirl: Poor Tiffany fails to display any resourcefulness whatsoever after the third act begins.
* GirlOfTheWeek: The main Bond Girl of this film.
* GoGoEnslavement: Once she is kidnapped by Blofeld.
* HeelFaceTurn: Averted. Tiffany is no better or worse for her switching sides than she is at the start of the story.
* HeroesWantRedheads: Bond states in this movie that he did really like redheads.
* TheKlutz: Somehow becomes very clumsy once she's on Bond's side and gets worse throughout the film.
* LoveableRogue: A lovely diamond smuggler.
* MasterOfDisguise: She swaps into several different wigs in her first scene alone.
* MsFanservice: "Such nice cheeks" indeed. Besides spending the entire climax in GoGoEnslavement, Tiffany, ''in her very first scene'', opens the door to Bond almost nude. Bond is ''obviously'' delighted and [[LampshadeHanging lampshades]] it.
--> ''[Tiffany Case opens the door almost nude]''\\
'''James Bond:''' That's quite a nice little ''nothing'' you're ''almost'' wearing. I approve.\\
''[later]''\\
'''Tiffany Case:''' [...] I'll finish dressing.\\
'''James Bond:''' Oh, please don't, not on my account.
* RedemptionDemotion: One of the most {{egregious}} examples when it comes to intelligence. As a criminal, she came across as a slick, competent pro with enough authority to have her own henchman. She even showed some cleverness escaping a squadron of CIA agents organized to arrest her. After her HeelFaceTurn, she blunders around so embarrassingly that both Bond and Blofeld make snide comments on {{what an idiot}} she is.
* SlapSlapKiss: She and Bond spend a lot of time bickering, but inevitably still end up together.

!!Ernst Stavro Blofeld
[[quoteright:231:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/363102a86b3a8943d81f8185330856ca.jpg]]
[[caption-width-right:231: ''"We are prose, Mr. Bond."'']]
->'''Played by:''' Charles Gray

Bond's Arch-Enemy returns, having dropped his old outfit (SPECTRE) and escaped justice using body doubles. This Blofeld mostly hides behind the apparatus of Williard Whyte's business. Curiously, though, he doesn't exactly keep a low profile, in fact, he turned on the {{camp}} UpToEleven.

In any case, this was the last time Bond tangled with him (apart from a LawyerFriendlyCameo in ''Film/ForYourEyesOnly'' and the remake of ''Thunderball'', ''Film/NeverSayNeverAgain''), until ''Film/{{Spectre}}'' was released.
----
* AffablyEvil: Blofeld is at his most affable with Bond in this film.
* ArchEnemy: Bond stages a RoaringRampageOfRevenge after him at the start of the film.
* BigBad: The main antagonist of the film.
* BodyDouble: He has created several body doubles of himself using MagicPlasticSurgery on his henchmen.
* CampStraight: Probably the most blatant case in the franchise. He even gets DisguisedInDrag at one point.
* TheChessmaster: Blofeld's EvilPlan this time is using a diamond-powered KillSat to destroy nuclear weapons in China, the Soviet Union and the United States, then propose "an international auction, with nuclear supremacy going to the highest bidder."
* DeadpanSnarker: Blofeld is also at his most snarkier in this film. He's especially having a ball in the third act at the oil rig.
--> '''Blofeld:''' The satellite is at present over... Kansas. Well, if we destroy Kansas the world may not hear about it for years. Perhaps New York, with all that smut and traffic... might give them a chance for a fresh start.
* DiabolicalMastermind: He's the mastermind behing a "pipeline" of diamond smugglers to obtain the diamonds for his laser satellite. He later sends assassins to dispose of its members once [[YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness they'd outlived their usefulness]].
* DisguisedInDrag: The way he escapes from Whyte's casino.
* EvilIsHammy: Makes more ham-style comments and snarks this time.
* GoodSmokingEvilSmoking: The cigarette holder as an Evil Smoking indicator.
* IdentityImpersonator: Impersonates Willard Whyte in order to use the latter's wealth and space research facility for his schemes.
* MagicPlasticSurgery: He creates doubles of himself using plastic surgery and ... mud baths(?!) on his henchmen.
* NotQuiteDead: At the beginning of the film, Bond finds him at a facility where Blofeld look-alikes are being created through surgery. Bond kills a test subject, and later the "real" Blofeld, by drowning him in a pool of superheated mud. Turns out ''that'' Blofeld was also a look-alike.
* OmnicidalManiac: Doesn't mind targeting nuclear missiles or nuclear submarines with his killsat.
* RightHandCat: He even ''duplicates'' his trademark white Persian cat in order to fool Bond.
* SmokingIsCool: Complete with a cigarette holder.
* SupervillainLair: Two: Whyte's penthouse atop a hotel in Las Vegas, and an oil rig.
* WarForFunAndProfit: This is his plan with the diamond laser KillSat. He demonstrates it on a handful of contraptions from the U.S., Russia, and China, in that order, and then holds an "international auction" to give nuclear supremacy to the highest bidder, and the losers get blown up; Washington is targeted as a result.

[[folder: Willard Whyte]]
!!Willard Whyte
[[quoteright:350:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/diamonds_are_forever_willard_whyte.jpg]]
[[caption-width-right:350:''"Baja? I haven't got anything in Baja!"'']]
->'''Played by:''' Jimmy Dean

A reclusive billionnaire kidnapped by Blofeld. The latter impersonates him with a voice changer in order to use his wealth and space research facility to build and launch a KillSat. Once the deception is uncovered by Bond, Whyte uses his contacts and funds to assist in the destruction of Blofeld's lair on an oil rig off the coast of Baja California.
----
* DeadpanSnarker: He delivers the one line that it's even too much ''for Bond himself'', who slowly turns, [[AsideGlance glancing straight at the camera]].
--> ''[when Burt Saxby tries to assassinate Willard Whyte, and is gunned down for his efforts]''\\
'''Bond:''' Saxby!\\
'''White:''' ''Burt'' Saxby? Tell him he's [[{{Pun}} fired!]]
* {{Fiction 500}}: He's capable of funding space research, to the point a Bond villain like Blofeld saw Whyte's resources quite tempting.
* KidnappedScientist: The space research centre he funds is the other reason that motivated Blofeld to kidnap him besides his wealth.
* NoCelebritiesWereHarmed: The character is a spoof of Howard Hughes.
* NonIdleRich: He funded a space research facility and helps Bond and his allies after being released, using his contacts and funds to assist in the destruction of Blofeld's oil rig lair.

[[caption-width-right:300: ''"If God had meant man to fly, Mr. Wint..."'' ''"...He would have given him wings, Mr. Kidd."'']]
->'''Played by:''' Bruce Glover and Putter Smith

Two assassins on Blofeld's/the Spang's employ, who're "cleaning" out the smuggling ring that leads to him using creative ways to dispose of Bond and the smugglers. They are [[HoYay very close to each other]].
----
* AffablyEvil: They act very cheery during the film while commiting increasingly colder murders. In the novel, the latter trope is played straight, with them viciously taunting their victims before torturing them.
* AlliterativeName: In the novel, while we never learn his full name, "Wint" is a contraction of "W. Winter".
* AnimalAssassin: They use a [[ScaryScorpions scorpion]] to kill Dr. Tynan.
* BaldOfEvil: Mr. Kidd.
* BangFlagGun: In a DeletedScene, Wint kills Shady Tree with a "Bang!" Flag Gun that [[NotSoFakePropWeapon shoots a real bullet]].
* BondOneLiner: They tend to joke about their victims' plight.
-->'''Kidd:''' If God had wanted man to fly, Mr. Wint...\\
'''Wint:''' ... He would have given them wings, Mr. Kidd.
* BondVillainStupidity: They fail to kill an unconscious Bond twice. [[spoiler:First, they put him in a coffin to be cremated. Later, after Bond has been gassed by Blofeld, they leave him in a pipe to be buried alive. Bond escapes his fate in both instances.]]
* CampGay: Mr. Wint.
* ChekhovsGun: Mr. Wint's aftershave.
* DepravedHomosexual: They're depraved assassins who are ''heavily'' implied to be homosexual.
* FinishingEachOthersSentences: They finish each other's sentences.
* FourEyesZeroSoul: Mr. Kidd in the film, Mr. Wynt in the book.
* HoistByHisOwnPetard: [[spoiler:Mr. Wint has his bomb tied [[GroinAttack to his groin]] and is blown up by it.]]
* LaughablyEvil: In the film, they kill one person after another, but they're funny. In the book? Not so much.
* ManOnFire: [[spoiler:Bond sets Mr. Kidd on fire during the climactic confrontation, which leads to his death.]]
* MinionShipping: They're two minions who are... [[HoYay very close to each other]].
* MisterXAndMisterY: They always call each other Mr. Wint and Mr. Kidd.
* PsychoForHire: They're clear psychos who are hired by Blofeld to eliminate the smuggling "pipeline" that leads to him.
* PsychoticSmirk: Given their AffablyEvil status, they flash a lot of these during the course of the film.
* RedRightHand: In the book, Wynt has a distinctive wart on his thumb, while Kidd has white hair.
* RevolversAreJustBetter: In the book, Wynt wields a .38 Colt Police Positive, while Kidd wields a .45 revolver.
* RoomDisservice: They attempt to pull a DragonTheirFeet on Bond and Tiffany Case by posing as hotel room service on a cruise liner. [[spoiler:They fail.]]
* SoftSpokenSadist: They always speak pleasantly of their murders, like when Mr. Kidd suggests to send some pictures of the corpse of one of their victims to her schoolchildren.
* SissyVillain: Mr. Wint in the film.
* StraightGay: While Mr. Wint could be said to be vaguely swishy (though not really for the time), Mr. Kidd is so un-flamboyant, you'd never guess he's gay if not for the "For a lady" scene.
* ThoseTwoBadGuys: Probably the two most iconic examples of this trope. The trope's main article page is even [[SelfDemonstratingArticle written in the distinctive manner]] [[MisterXAndMisterY they address each other with.]]

[[folder: Albert R. "Burt" Saxby]]
!!Albert R. "Burt" Saxby
[[quoteright:350:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/daf_rifle1.jpg]]
->'''Played by:''' Bruce Cabot

Saxby works for Willard Whyte until Blofeld takes over; Saxby then becomes Blofeld's right-hand man. He gets shot by CIA agents while attempting to assassinate Willard Whyte. As the dead Saxby tumbles down a hill, Whyte spouts one of the movie's best-remembered deadpan-lines: "Tell him he's fired!".

His name is a direct reference to the series' producer Albert R. "Cubby" Broccoli.
----
* TheDragon: To Blofeld.
* TheMole: In Whyte's company.
* YouAreTooLate: Henchman to villain example. When he realizes Bond has fake diamonds, he tries to tell Wint and Kidd not to kill Shady Tree. Unfortunately, they had already done the deed.

Two women who are keeping the real Willard Whyte prisoner in his house.
----
* BodyguardBabes: They're put to guard Willard Whyte from rescue or escape.
* FauxActionGirl: They're easily beaten by Bond as aside from some acrobatics they don't have any real combat skills.
* FluffyTheTerrible: [[Disney/{{Bambi}} Guess where]] their names come from...
* MsFanservice: Thumper. She's the one in a bikini in the picture.
* MurderousThighs: Bambi puts Bond in a scissors hold to allow Thumper to attack him.
* SaltAndPepper: From what we briefly see about them, they fit the trope. They both start up speaking calmly and seductively, but when they start beating Bond up, while Bambi keeps speaking that way, Thumper switches to {{Kiai}}.
* SheFu: They do impractical backflips, {{Unnecessary Combat Roll}}s, gymnastic cartwheels, the whole thing.
* {{Stripperiffic}}: Thumper is dressed only in a bikini.
* WalkingSwimsuitScene: Thumper is dressed only in a bikini.

* GoldDigger: ...he loses all his money, so she dumps him and latches on to James Bond after hearing the hefty sum Bond is gambling, giving this vibe.
* InnocentBystander: She doesn't have anything to do with the diamond-smuggling plot, [[spoiler: but is killed by Wint and Kidd when they mistake her for Tiffany Case.]]
* MeaningfulName
--> '''Plenty:''' Hi, I'm Plenty.\\
'''Bond:''' But of course you are.
* MsFanservice: First a low cut purple dress, and then stripped down to nothing but transparent pink panties.
* NakedPeopleAreFunny: Close enough. She is almost completely naked when she gets thrown out the window and lands in the pool, and before that with her arms folded protectively over her chest while she screamed in humiliated protest was clearly played for laughs.
* PunnyName: A big-breasted woman named Plenty O'Toole.
* ShamefulStrip: Though it wasn't the strip that shamed her, it was being caught by "the perverts convention" that shamed her, causing her to go from ShamelessFanserviceGirl to ReluctantFanserviceGirl.
* UnfortunateNames: ''Again'', she's a big-breasted woman named Plenty O'Toole.
* SacrificialLamb: [[spoiler:Gets killed by Wint and Kidd to show that they're a dangereous act, just in case their murders in the opening didn't make it clear.]]
* WeHardlyKnewYe: [[spoiler:The audience gets to know next to nothing about her before her death.]]

----
* AdaptationalVillainy: In the book he was Bond's ally.
* GrumpyOldMan: He sure is grumpy on and offstage. His first impression upon meeting Wint and Kidd is assuming that they're critics.
--> '''Shady Tree:''' ''[after Mr. Wint and Mr. Kidd enter into his dressing room]'' Critics and materials I don't need! I haven't changed my act in 40 years!
* HeKnowsTooMuch: He's killed by Wint and Kidd for being part of the diamond smuggling ring.
