Film-based Fanon

  • "James Bond" is a code name that comes with the 007 ranking. This originally started as a joke to "explain" the different actors that have played him. Now it causes debates that can rage for hours, and explanations on how precisely it melds with the films' Canon extends into Wild Mass Guessing territory.
    • The corollary to this theory is that Felix Leiter is likewise a code name within the CIA.
    • Another popular explanation for Bond's different appearances? Time Lord.

Book-based Fanon

  • Fleming intended for Bond to have died at the ambiguous end of From Russia with Love. His recovery was all off-page, merely stated by M at the beginning of Dr. No and never touched upon in Bond's internal narration. Here's where the code-name theory hits the books.


Fan Nickname

Common Fan Fic Tropes

Examples should be tropes that show up often in fanfic which are not just taken purely from canon:
  • Patchwork Fic — Classic!Bond villains and events being referenced/included in Reboot!Bond's backstory. (Alec Trevelyan is particularly popular for this).
    • Most of the classic characters appearing in video games based on the James Bond movies.
