* Tilly detailing how poor Jill slowly ''suffocated to death'' in a Miami hospital, after being completely painted gold, with the staff utterly powerless to do anything.
* The moment when Goldfinger reveals his plan to fatally gas the entire town, as well as the description of the aftermath. [[spoiler: Granted, it was fake and a ploy by Leiter, but still!]]
* Bond practically trying to pressure his body into dying as the circular saw gets nearer and nearer his groin.
* Billy Ring, one of the gangsters, has his ''entire lower lip'' cut off, leaving him looking like a ventroquilist's dummy. And when he talks, his mouth moves like one. Brrr.


* Tilly Masterson's death. While Oddjob's hat doesn't decapitate her, it surely looks like it does.
