!'''Max Zorin'''
->Played by: '''Creator/ChristopherWalken'''

The surviving result of a Nazi eugenics experiment turned microchip tycoon and later recruited by the KGB. He has gone rogue and now pursues his own interests.

* AxCrazy: ''Extremely'' so, to the point where [[spoiler: he literally wields one during his final fight with Bond]].
%%* AmazonChaser
* BadBoss: Remarkably bad even by Bond villain standards. He personally guns down his own minions while laughing maniacally the moment he no longer needs them, and even betrays May Day, not even for the usual YouHaveFailedMe but simply ForTheEvulz.
%%* BigBad
* BigFancyHouse: A Renaissance château in France (Chantilly), no less.
* BlondGuysAreEvil: He has platinum blond hair and is a psychopath. Later explained by the fact that his biological mother was selected by a Nazi scientist for his experiments.

%%* DiabolicalMastermind
%%* DisneyVillainDeath
* EvilGenius: He has genius-level intelligence but is also completely AxCrazy. He hatches a scheme to murder millions of people for profit.

* EvilLaugh: Often breaks out into evil laughter, even when it seems wholely inappropriate for the situation.

* {{Expy}}: His plan is, essentially, a remake of Film/{{Goldfinger}}'s, only with ''significantly'' more collateral damage intended.
%%* FauxAffablyEvil
%%* KingpinInHisGym
* KnightOfCerebus: Probably Roger Moore's Bond's most dangerous foe since Francisco Scaramanga.
* OmnicidalManiac: From the way he acts, it seems he wants to destroy Silicon Valley just to watch it go [=BOOM=]. His whole microchip price gouging scheme seems more like a fringe benefit.
%%* PsychoticSmirk
* PutTheLaughterInSlaughter: He murders his minions while laughing psychotically.
* TheStarscream[=/=]EvilIsNotAToy: He's a product of Nazi eugenics experiments that the KGB raised, trained, and sent to the West as a deep cover agent. Once he becomes successful enough, he decides to screw them over and take a shot at global financial domination himself.
