[[quoteright:350:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/800px_dad_tomcat_1.JPG]]
[[caption-width-right:350:''"World peace, unconditional love, and our little friend with the expensive acne."'']]
->'''Played by:''' Creator/HalleBerry

An 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.
* 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.
* FauxActionGirl: Her proficiency seems to switch scene to scene.
* GirlOfTheWeek: The main Bond girl of the film.
* InSeriesNickname: She's nicknamed "Jinx" for having been born on a Friday the 13th.
* MeaningfulName: Gets caught twice by the enemy. Talk about being jinxed.
* MsFanservice: Topping Honey Rider is no small task, but Halle Berry sure looks good in that bikini.
* ShoutOut: Her first shot was based on Honey Rider 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".

[[quoteright:350:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/gw372h306.jpeg]]

->'''Played by:''' Will Yun Lee

First major villain of ''Die Another Day'', he appears in the prologue with an elaborate plot to usurp control of North Korea, then conquer South Korea and Japan.

* ColonelKilgore: He eagerly looks forward to the idea to go to war with South Korea and Japan.
* CoolCar: He's got a nice collection of sports cars.
* DeadpanSnarker: He has no shortage of barbs to trade. For just one example, he's the TropeNamer for MajoredInWesternHypocrisy.

%%* ItsAllAboutMe
* KingpinInHisGym: Trains his taekwondo kicks on a punching bag. In which he's stuffed his anger management therapist.
* MajoredInWesternHypocrisy: TropeNamer. He was Western-educated and claims to despise the West for dividing Korea, but he blatantly abuses foreign aid to finance a personal collection of sports cars, has allies in the West like Miranda Frost, and is extremely corrupt and dictatorial.
* 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.
* WellDoneSonGuy: Wants his father's approval. At first anyway.

[[caption-width-right:350:''"Let's do this the old-fashioned way - first blood drawn from the torso!"'']]
->'''Played by:''' Toby Stephens

The major villain of the film, Gustav Graves is a billionaire diamond magnate who seems to be interested in alleviating world hunger with his new solar satellite. What is his connection to Col. Moon? The answer is... [[spoiler: They're ''the same man''.]]
----
* AffablyEvil: A prerequisite for any Bond villain.
* AlliterativeName: '''G'''ustav '''G'''raves
* BigBad: He's the main antagonist of the film.
* BigFancyHouse: His mansion in Iceland is a Big Fancy IcePalace.
* CaptainErsatz: Graves is very much based on [[Literature/{{Moonraker}} Sir Hugo Drax]], 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.
* DeadpanSnarker: Graves claims to have modelled himself after Bond; he certainly included the snide remarks on that.
-->'''Gustav Graves:''' ''[in regards of receiving a knighthood]'' What a wonderful day to become a knight.
* DiabolicalMastermind: His EvilPlan involves building a huge space project, build his fortune on mining and has an extravagant lifestyle.
* EvilCounterpart: To Bond, invoked and lampshaded by Graves himself.
%%* EvilGenius
* EvilRedhead: Besides becoming Caucasian, the gene alteration surgery also made him a redhead.
* {{Fiction 500}}: Graves build a wealth in diamonds that's almost impossible to quantify.
* {{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
* 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 groundbreaking 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.
* 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, Will Yun Lee and Toby Stephens, 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.
* RedRightHand: 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.
* SelfMadeOrphan: [[spoiler:Kills his father after he tries to stop him.]]
-->[[spoiler: '''Gustav:''' ''(in Korean)'' Father... [[DisappointedInYou you disappoint me]].]]

* TurbineBlender: [[spoiler:He dies by getting sucked into 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.

!!Miranda Frost
[[quoteright:245:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/miranda_frost.jpg]]
[[caption-width-right:245:''"I know all about you - sex for dinner, death for breakfast."'']]
->'''Played by:''' Creator/RosamundPike

MI6 operative working on the Gustav Graves case with Bond. She was also an Olympic fencer.
----
* BareYourMidriff: The outfit that she displays in the final fight against Jinx bares her upper abdomen.
* DarkActionGirl: Frost is manipulative and not ashamed to fight.
* DefrostingIceQueen: Well the defrosting part is a subversion. [[spoiler:She was faking it to get Bond's trust.]]
* 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.
* TheMole: [[spoiler:She was the one who revealed Bond's true identity in North Korea.]]
* 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.]]

* EvilAlbino: After his gene alteration surgery is interrupted by Bond.

* MagicPlasticSurgery: Was going through one before Bond intervened.
* NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast: Zao means "evil" in Serbo-Croatian.

* ImpaledWithExtremePrejudice: With a laser.
* MeaningfulName: He's obviously a killer.
* NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast: To the point where it's actually funny instead of scary. His real, given name is apparently '''Kill'''. Wryly lampshaded by Bond during his intro.
* PunnyName: Kil and Kill are not exactly lightyears apart.
* TortureTechnician: His function as Gustav's henchman.
