Top Bond Villains

Scene Staff Report | Friday, November 9, 2012

1. Ernst Stavro Blofeld
The leader of the criminal organization SPECTRE, and the exact basis for Dr. Evil’s character in “Austin Powers,” Blofeld appears in six different Bond films, constantly at war with Bond and the British Secret Service.

2. Goldfinger
A classic bad guy obsessed with gold and wealth, Goldfinger plots to devalue the entirety of America’s gold stock in Fort Knox with some pretty fancy radiation technology. A very economically devious plan.

3. Jaws
A monstrous figure with unlimited strength, Jaws actually appeared in two different Bond films, “The Spy Who Loved Me” and “Moonraker.” He survives a building collapsing on him, being thrown from a train, being hit by a car and even a fight with a shark. Not bad.

4. Oddjob
A Japanese henchman in “Goldfinger,” Oddjob was famous for his nasty hat-throwing skills.

5. Scaramanga
Bond’s nemesis in the 1974 film “The Man with the Golden Gun,” Scaramanga is a three-nippled assassin who wields the infamous golden gun. Christopher Lee, who found villainy again later in life as Saruman in “The Lord of the Rings” trilogy, played the villain.
