A UsefulNotes/{{NSA}} agent who joins Bond to fight Gustav Graves.
* ActionGirl: She kicks ass without much effort when needed.
* BadassInDistress: Gets caught twice by the enemy, and at one point she's strapped to a table and would've been killed with lasers ''Goldfinger''-style if not for Bond's intervention.
* BondOneLiner: She says to Bond, "I might have broken her heart," when the latter happens to [[spoiler:find Frost dead]].
* DistaffCounterpart: For Bond, like [[Film/TheSpyWhoLovedMe Anya Amasova]], [[Film/LicenceToKill Pam Bouvier]], and [[Film/TomorrowNeverDies Wai Lin]]. It's ''she'' who pulls a NotStayingForBreakfast on Bond.

* GirlOfTheWeek: The main Bond girl of the film.
* InSeriesNickname: She's nicknamed "Jinx" for having been born on a Friday the 13th.

* ShoutOut: Her first shot was based on Honey Ryder emerging from the sea in ''Film/DrNo''.
* SpyCatsuit: She wears a catsuit as her outfit for infiltration missions.
* UnfortunateNames: International secret agents probably wouldn't want to be nicknamed (or be associated with someone who's nicknamed) "Jinx".

Also the {{Trope Namer|s}} for MajoredInWesternHypocrisy.
* ItsAllAboutMe: He seems to look out for the Korean unification less because of whatever benefit it will grant North Korea, but to become immortalized in history.
* {{Jerkass}}: He's one big of a douche, [[MajoredInWesternHypocrisy as he claims to despise the West for dividing Korea, yet is Western-educated and has a personal collection of sports cars]], [[spoiler:and when his father realizes that Gustav Graves is actually his son in disguise, he promptly offs him.]]
* KingpinInHisGym: Trains his taekwondo kicks on a punching bag. In which he's stuffed his anger management therapist.

* NotQuiteDead: [[spoiler:He apparently died after falling into a waterfall in the opening sequence of the film, but he actually survived, turned into a Caucasian, and is in another part of the globe.]]
* RenegadeRussian: North Korean actually, but he fits the archetype exactly: high military leader of a post-Cold War regime who stages a coup against the current government to pursue his own plans for conquest.
* ShoutOut: His full name is a reference to Literature/ColonelSun, the main villain of the fifteenth ''Literature/JamesBond'' novel.

[[caption-width-right:300:''"Let's do this the old-fashioned way - first blood drawn from the torso!"'']]

* BigFancyHouse: His mansion in Iceland is a Big Fancy IcePalace.
* ButNotTooForeign: He's Argentinian-English. [[spoiler:At least currently. He's originally North-Korean.]]
* CaptainErsatz: Graves is very much based on Sir Hugo Drax from the novel ''Literature/{{Moonraker}}'', from building a huge space project to supposedly solve the world's problems, being a media darling, building his fortune on mining and having an extravagant lifestyle, [[spoiler: to actually being a military officer of a totalitarian government (Nazi Germany for Drax in the novel, North Korea for Graves in the film) who took the opportunity of being declared dead to create a new identity for himself]].
* DeadpanSnarker: Graves claims to have modelled himself after Bond. He certainly included the witty remarks on that.
-->'''Gustav Graves:''' ''[in regards of receiving a knighthood]'' What a wonderful day to become a knight.
* DiabolicalMastermind: His EvilPlan involves build a fortune on diamond mining to fund a huge space project, and have an extravagant lifestyle in the meantime.
* DisappointedInYou: Said nearly word-for-word to General Moon [[BilingualBonus in Korean]] before [[spoiler:killing him]].
* EvenEvilHasLovedOnes: He might be a borderline sociopath but he still wants to [[spoiler:make his father proud]], he seems genuinely fond of Miranda, and despite being Zao's boss and superior, the two of them are really good friends.
* EvilBrit: He's half-English and the film's BigBad. [[spoiler:Except he's not really an Englishman.]]
* EvilCounterpart: To Bond, invoked and lampshaded by Graves himself:
-->'''Gustav Graves:''' We only met briefly, but you left a lasting impression. You see, [[spoiler:when your intervention forced me to present the world with a new face,]] I chose to model the disgusting Gustav Graves on you. Oh, just in the details. That unjustifiable swagger, the crass quips, the self-defense mechanism concealing such inadequacy...
%%* EvilGenius
* EvilRedhead: [[spoiler:Besides becoming Caucasian, the gene alteration surgery also made him a redhead.]]
* FamousLastWords: He says "Time to face destiny" [[spoiler:just before Bond sends him to his TurbineBlender death]].
* {{Fiction 500}}: Graves has built a wealth in diamonds that's almost impossible to quantify. [[spoiler: Illegal blood diamonds, that is.]]
* {{Foreshadowing}}: [[spoiler:Before he's revealed to be Colonel Moon under a new identity, you notice that his sword duel with Bond is extremely vicious and rife with obvious personal loathing towards Bond on Graves's part. It's a clue that they've crossed paths once before.]]
* HairTriggerTemper: He can barely stand in the same room as Bond before lashing out. [[spoiler:Later revealed to be because he's Colonel Moon.]]
* HoistByHisOwnPetard: [[spoiler:Bond manages to defeat him by hitting a switch on the suit that shocks him before using the parachute Gustav had just put on himself to suck him into a turbine outside the plane.]]
* ItsAllAboutMe: His [[spoiler:near death experience and changing his identity]] has lowered neither his selfishness nor his quest for power and glory, ''at all''.
* KillSat: Part of his EvilPlan is to build a satellite than can destroy any targets he wants from orbit, including incoming missiles against the satellite.
* KingpinInHisGym: He loves fencing and has a rather vicious duel with Bond.
* MagicPlasticSurgery: [[spoiler:It's revealed that he's actually Colonel Moon after having submitted himself to a gene surgery to alter his entire ethnicity that changed him from North Korean colonel into a snobby British playboy.]]
* ManOfWealthAndTaste: Graves is filthy rich and enjoys the high-class life.
* NotSoDifferent: Gustav Graves uses it as a taunt to Bond.
* NouveauRiche: He's recently become a multi-billionaire from a diamond mine he set up in Iceland. [[spoiler: In reality, his massive fortune was really built by using the ''mine'' as a front for laundering blood diamonds from Sierra Leone]].
* OlderHeroVsYoungerVillain: Graves is notable as the only Bond BigBad to be explicitly younger than James himself. This also is true meta-wise: At the time of filming, [[spoiler:Creator/WillYunLee and Creator/TobyStephens, the actors who portray him as Colonel Moon and as Graves respectively, were 30 and 32 years old, facing off against a 48 year old Pierce Brosnan.]]
* SelfMadeOrphan: [[spoiler:Kills his father after he tries to stop him.]]
-->[[spoiler: '''Graves:''' ''(in Korean)'' Father... [[DisappointedInYou you disappoint me]].]]
* ShockAndAwe: Wears a protective electric suit in the climax of the movie which also doubles as (in his words) an ergonomical way to control the Icarus.
* TheSleepless: A side effect of [[spoiler:the plastic surgery that turned him from Colonel Moon into Gustav Graves]] is that he's been left with permanent insomnia, and thus must spend one hour of each day in an REM machine to keep himself sane.
* SuddenlyEthnicity: [[spoiler:The Caucasian Graves is actually the North Korean Colonel Moon after having submitted himself to a gene surgery to alter his entire ethnicity.]]
* ThatManIsDead: [[spoiler:Inverted. General Moon, horrified with what his son has become, says that his son died when he fell into the waterfall.]]
* TurbineBlender: He dies by getting sucked into [[spoiler:one of his plane's turbine after Bond kicks him out of it.]]
* VillainWithGoodPublicity: Graves is beloved by England, schmoozes with the tabloid press, and he's introduced with the mention that he's due to be granted a knighthood.
* WickedCultured: You can't get more Wicked Cultured than naming your solar-based weapon "Icarus", though it's also a great case of TemptingFate.

[[folder:Miranda Frost]]
!!Miranda Frost
[[caption-width-right:300:''"I know all about you -- sex for dinner, death for breakfast."'']]
->'''Played by:''' Creator/RosamundPike

A MI6 operative working on the Gustav Graves case with Bond. She was also an Olympic fencer.

* DarkActionGirl: [[spoiler:After being revealed as being one of the villains, Frost is not ashamed to fight.]]
* DefrostingIceQueen: She is introduced with a cold demeanor, but eventually accepts to spend a night together with Bond. [[spoiler:Well, the defrosting part is a subversion. She was faking it to get Bond's trust.]]
* EvilBrit: [[spoiler:A British secret agent who turns out to be one of the villains.]]
* EvilIsPetty: [[spoiler: Seriously, selling out your country...just because you came in second at the Olympics. Wow, just wow.]]
* ImpaledWithExtremePrejudice: [[spoiler: How Jinx kills her, stabbing her in the the midsection through a ''The Art of War'' book and kicking the knife into her as the final blow. Doubly funny that their clash was a sword fight and when you remember that Frost did come in at second place in the Olympics.]]
* MeaningfulName: An IceQueen called Frost.
* PimpedOutDress: Her ice blue dress, with icicles-like tassels.
* PrettyInMink: Has a fur scarf, a fur trimmed coat, and her white fur wrap [[spoiler:Would be FurAndLoathing, except she wears a few furs before the reveal, and they seem to be fake anyway.]]
* RuleOfSymbolism: Her name, and the style of her ice dress.
* SecondPlaceIsForLosers: She got a silver medal for fencing, but was awarded gold after the previous winner OD'ed on steroids [[spoiler:which was planted by Graves's people, thus effectively buying Miranda's loyalty. Thus this trope comes into play, in that she would turn on her country rather than accept second place.]]
* StatuesqueStunner: A beautiful woman who clocks 5'9.

[[caption-width-right:350:''"How's that for a punchline?"'']]
->'''Played by:''' Rick Yune

Colonel Moon's, and later, Gustav Graves' right hand man.

* CoolCar: Jaguar XKR, with enough gadgets to rival Bond's Aston Martin Vanquish.
* CreepyBlueEyes: Post-botched surgery, he gets anormally blue eyes.
* TheDragon: Is incredibly loyal to Colonel Moon, [[spoiler: even after he undergoes gene surgery and becomes Graves.]]
* EvilAlbino: After his gene alteration surgery is interrupted by Bond, he acquires an albino-like appereance.
* FallingChandelierOfDoom: Dies after a chandelier falls on him at the ice palace courtesy of Bond.

* KarmicDeath: The chandelier Bond kills him with was made of diamonds.
* MagicPlasticSurgery: Was going through one before Bond intervened.
* NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast: Zao means "evil" in Serbo-Croatian, and also in Hokkien "run".
* OhCrap: He realizes his fate the moment the ice chandelier falls on him.
* OnlyOneName: Just "Zao" and nothing more. It's possible "Zao" isn't even his real name and is just a nickname, or perhaps a codename given that Zao is, after all, a secret agent/terrorist.
* RedRightHand: First, the diamonds encrusted on his face and secondly, his UncannyValley look after the botched gene alteration process.
* TheScream: Zao screams when Bond drops the ice chandelier on him.
* VillainousFriendship: With Colonel Moon [[spoiler:even after he becomes Graves.]]

!!Vladimir Popov

* GadgeteerGenius: When Gustav Graves asks him for something more "ergonomic" with which to control the Icarus (until then he was using a device contained in a briefcase), Vlad creates a PoweredArmor suit.

[[folder:Mr. Kil]]
!!Mr. Kil
[[caption-width-right:300:''"I'm Mr. Kil."'']]
->'''Played by:''' Lawrence Makoare

A henchman of Gustav Graves. He attempts to kill Jinx using lasers in a secret diamond cutting room, but Bond manages to save her in time.
* HoistByHisOwnPetard: Just as Kil is about to stab Bond, Jinx grabs the remote to the laser machine and fires a beam through the back of his head and out his mouth, killing him.
* ImpaledWithExtremePrejudice: The way the laser beam hits him (through the back of his head and out his mouth) looks like he got impaled with a rod.
* MeaningfulName: Mr. Kil is obviously a killer.
* NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast: To the point where it's actually funny instead of scary. His real, given name is apparently '''Kil'''. Wryly lampshaded by Bond during his intro.
-->'''Mr. Kil:''' I'm Mr. Kil.\\
'''Bond:''' That's a name to die for.
* PunnyName: Kil and "kill" are not exactly lightyears apart.
* TortureTechnician: His function as Gustav's henchman.

[[folder:General Moon]]
!!General Moon
->'''Played by:''' Kenneth Tsang

The father of Colonel Tan-Sun Moon and a general in the North Korean army.
* FamousLastWords: "The son I knew died ''long ago''." Said after he learns about [[spoiler:Graves' plans to cause war between the two Koreas]].
* IHaveNoSon: [[spoiler:Ashamed and horrified with the monster his son has become, General Moon says that his son truly died when he fell into the waterfall.]]
* LikeFatherUnlikeSon: He is the total opposite of his SpoiledBrat son.
* PapaWolf: When Bond seemingly assassinates Colonel Moon, the general has him imprisoned and tortured for more than a year.
* ReasonableAuthorityFigure: In stark contrast to his own son, General Moon sent him to study in the West so he could help bridge the gap between the two Koreas, refused to condone the torture DPRK soldiers inflicted on Bond, resisted attempts by hardliners to launch an open invasion to the South, and [[spoiler:finally, tries to kill his own son when he realizes what a monster he has become.]]
* RoaringRampageOfRevenge: [[spoiler:Bond himself, who had no cause to feel pity for the man who allowed him to be tortured for fourteen long months, is so infuriated by General Moon's death that he wastes no time going in to finish off the traitorous former colonel.]]
* TranquilFury: [[spoiler:When Graves forces his father to watch as he unleashes Icarus upon the DMZ, a move that Moon is certain will trigger a destructive war that will ruin North Korea. After having spent the past year pining over his son's betrayal and supposed death, Moon takes up arms against his own son, telling that he is dead to him.]]

[[folder:Mr. Chang]]
!!Mr. Chang
->'''Played by:''' Ho Yi

The manager of the Royal Rubyeon Hotel in UsefulNotes/HongKong, who also works for the Chinese secret services.
* CovertGroupWithMundaneFront: He's a Chinese secret agent whose cover is that of a hotel manager.
* HospitalityForHeroes: When Bond walks into the Royal Rubyeon Hotel in his wet pajamas, with long hair and a beard and without any money, the receptionist doesn't take him seriously. Then Chang recognizes him and offers him a room and new clothes immediately (although it's initially to spy on him through a HoneyTrap with Peaceful Fountains of Desire).
* MistakenForSpies: Played with. He believes Bond had come to Hong Kong to prepare something to take the city back from China on behalf of the UK; the presence of a British agent in what Chang states as "our turf" is fishy to him. Then Bond explains to him he's just after Zao and enlists Chang's help to get him to Cuba.

!!Peaceful Fountains of Desire
[[caption-width-right:300:''"I'm not that kind of masseuse..."'']]
->'''Played by:''' Rachel Grant

A masseuse who is sent to Bond's room when he is staying at a hotel in Hong Kong. When she arrives to his room, it seems at first that Bond tries to seduce her, only to be revealed by him that she's actually a Chinese agent posing as a masseuse to probe Bond for information.
* FanserviceExtra: She appears for a few minutes and to give the movie a little extra titillation.
* HappyEndingMassage: Discussed. When she comes to Bond's room claiming to be his masseuse and he seemingly starts to seduce her, she claims to be an aversion of this, saying that she's "not that kind of masseuse," before Bond tells her that he's "not that kind of customer," and proceeds to demonstrate that her superiors seemed to actually try to go for that route.
* HiddenWeapons: She has a gun in a holster around her thigh.
* HoneyTrap: She was sent by Mr. Chang to obtain information from Bond.
* MightyWhiteyAndMellowYellow: Subverted. At first it seems like Bond tries to seduce her when she's sent to his room. Then he takes her gun and reveals her as a Chinese secret service operative.
* MsFanservice: There's a [[ShesGotLegs close shot of her legs]] when Bond finds the gun in her thigh holster.
* NameThatUnfoldsLikeLotusBlossom: Peaceful Fountains of Desire is a mellow woman who inspires desire. Subverted in that it's most likely an alias for her masseuse cover, which also denotes that the "desire" part is enforced, since she's a HoneyTrap.
* OnlyKnownByTheirNickname: Assuming that "Peaceful Fountains of Desire" was just an alias for her masseuse cover.
* OverlyLongName: "Peaceful Fountains of Desire" seems quite like a mouthful. The end credits seem to agree, as she's only credited in them as "Peaceful."
* ShesGotLegs: There's a close-up on her thighs when Bond finds her hidden gun.

[[caption-width-right:250:''"I see you handle your weapon well."'']]
->'''Played by:''' Music/{{Madonna}}

A fencing teacher. She introduces Bond to Miranda Frost and Gustav Graves.
* TheCameo: A cameo for Madonna, who composed the movie's theme.
* DoItYourselfThemeTune: She's played by the woman who sang and composed the TitleThemeTune.
* HellBentForLeather: Befitting of modern Madonna (who has a thing for leather), Verity is clad in black leather.
* OnlyOneName: Just Verity.
* ZipMeUp: The first thing Verity does when she appears is ask Bond to help lace up her corset.
