Added DiffLines:

* The death of Saunders, crushed between (heavy) sliding glass doors in an amusement park. Thankfully, [[GoryDiscretionShot the gory deed and the aftermath are kept offscreen]]. Bond was terrified, then angry.

* Bond's faked assassination against Pushkin, with it and its aftermath shown in all the grisly detail of an actual assassination. Pushkin is quick to comfort his shaken mistress when the coast is clear.

* [[TheDragon Necros]], full stop. [[ParanoiaFuel He can perfectly imitate people's voices]] and effortlessly snatches his target from a heavily guarded security compound. His execution methods are also quite brutal too. Being strangled, or being crushed/slashed to ribbons by a booby-trapped sliding glass door, as poor Saunders found out.
