* FriendlyEnemy: He's evidently friends with Saunders, his opposite number in KGB, and is on FirstNameBasis with the man.

* AdaptationalBadass: Though the original Kuryakin was far from a wimp, he was a small man (5 foot 7) of slight build, and was no stranger to occasionally being bested in a fight, particularly if he was up against multiple opponents. This Kuryakin is 6 foot 5, built like a wrestler, and can take out several armed police officers without breaking a sweat. He is also capable of running down a ''car'' and [[spoiler: throwing motorcyles.]]

* RussianGuySuffersMost: Classic example. Not only he's the one with the saddest past (dad endend up in a gulag, and then [[SexForServices mum became popular with husband's friends]]) but [[spoiler: he's also the one who watches the woman he fell in love with betraying him and his companion]]. [[spoiler: Well, actually she was pretending to do that one.]]

* [[RacistGrandma Racist Grandfather]]: When he finds out his German niece is engaged to the Russian Illya, his very first conversation with the man involves insulting his Russian heritage, comparing it to a a purebred horse crossing bloodlines with a 'carthorse'. It's as distasteful as it sounds and has Illya clearly itching to [[BerserkButton reach out and crush his head.]]

* ManipulativeBastard: See the spoilers for TheLeader entry above. [[spoiler: He recruits Gaby two years before the CIA or KBG are sent after her, when things go wrong he manages to manipulate the two organizations to do the legwork for him, and then comes out on top with a new organization to run and two elite agents under his command.]]

Added DiffLines:

* HoistByHisOwnPetard: Not only is he strapped into his own torture device and accidentally killed by it, the torture room being soundproofed keeps Solo and Illya from noticing until it is too late.

Added DiffLines:

* KarmaHoudini: Played with when Solo and Kuryakin gripe that Rudi's willingness to provide information will mean that he'll get off lightly, and worse, his skills as a torturer are [[NotSoDifferent likely to prove useful to their own side as well]]. When they discover [[LaserGuidedKarma Rudi has just died horribly]], they're not too bothered.
* KickTheSonOfABitch: Gets a CruelAndUnusualDeath of being accidentally electrocuted, then set on fire. Neither of our heroes give a damn.
