%%* 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.

[[folder:Gustav Graves]]
!'''Gustav Graves'''
->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

%%* DiabolicalMastermind
* EvilCounterpart: To Bond, invoked and lampshaded by Graves himself.
%%* EvilGenius
%%* EvilRedhead
%%* {{Fiction 500}}
* {{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
* 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.]]

%%* MagicPlasticSurgery
%%* ManOfWealthAndTaste
* 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 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

->Played by: '''Creator/RosamundPike'''

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

%%* BareYourMidriff
%%* DarkActionGirl
* 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 an "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
* PimpedOutDress: Her ice blue dress, with icicles-like tassels.

* 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.]]

->Played by: '''Rick Yune'''

Colonel Moon[=/=]Gustav Graves' right hand man.

* FallingChandelierOfDoom: Dies when one falls on him.
* MagicPlasticSurgery: Was going through one before Bond intervened.
* NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast: Zao means "evil" in Serbo-Croatian.
* OnlyOneName: Just "Zao" and nothing more. It's possible "Zao" isn't even his real name and is just a nickname.
* RedRightHand: First, the diamonds encrusted on his face and secondly, his UncannyValley look after the botched gene alteration process.

!'''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.
