"Hello Mr. Bond welcome to my evil liar. Why don't you take a seat over there next to my piranha tank." What makes a dangerous Bond villain? Well a lot of things really. They need a cool evil lair, a creepy look, and of course a memorable name that may or may not be hard to pronounce. I included both the main villains and the henchman to make a more well rounded list.
10. Baron Samedi (Live and Let Die)
It is said Baron Samedi can never die! Is it true? Well go watch Live and Let Die and find out. Based on actually voodoo lore this character came straight from the pages of Ian Flemings original novel and brought to life by dancer/actor Geoffrey Holder. He's super creepy, especially when he's made out of porcelain, and he's a good character to play in Goldeneye. Watch out for his snakes!
9. Fiona Volpe (Thunderball)
SPECTRE's top assassin and one of the deadliest women in the 1960's era Bond movies. She's beautiful, but fierce. And she always gets the job done. Expect for killing James Bond. Then she and most other villains will fail. But she has a bike that fires rockets!
8. Oddjob (Goldfinger)
The henchman that started it all. Professional Wrestler Harold Sakata played the strong silent type known as Oddjob. The character seems to be impervious to pain, has the strength of a hundred men, and he throws his signature bowler hat that can cut/break through anything. Also, if you are carrying golf balls he will crush them on site!
7. Red Grant (From Russia With Love)
Robert Shaw plays the most effective killer for the sinister organization SPECTRE. Unlike other villains who either have one quality of being strong or being smart. He is both. Though he does have a weakness for gold sovereigns, so you can bribe him if he corners you.
6. Xenia Onatopp (GoldenEye)
Xenia....She always enjoyed a good squeeze. KGB trained, takes pleasure in killing people, and is truly psychotic. Just don't let her get her legs around you!
5. Silva (Skyfall)
Out for revenge against M, Silva will stop at nothing to kill her. Blowing up MI6, blowing up a subway station, and then blowing up Bond's house. That's a lot of bombs. Silva is also one of the few villains to succeed in his plans.
4. Jaws (Moonraker)
Obey him! The most intimidating Bond villain to date played by the late Richard Kiel. Jaws kills people not just by throwing them up against walls, but biting people on the neck with his razor sharp steel teeth. One of the few villains to survive two movies.
3. Francisco Scaramanga (The Man With the Golden Gun)
In the book, The Man With The Golden Gun was portrayed as a thug. But Sir Christopher Lee gave the character a little more class. He's smooth and calculating. Quick on the draw and an excellent marksmen. You wouldn't want to be in Scaramanga's crosshairs.
2. Elliot Carver (Tomorrow Never Dies)
Previous Bond films we are told that the villain is insane. This is the first time that we see that the villain is insane and not told. He wants to start World War III because he wants more ratings.....wow!
1. Ernst Stravo Blofeld (On Her Majesty's Secret Service)
There have been several incarnations of Blofeld in the James Bond franchise, but Telly Savalas portrayal of him in On Her Majesty's Secret Service has to be one of the best. He looks evil, sounds evil, and without any campy gimmicks like Donald Pleasences or Charles Gray Blofelds. Cunning, smooth, and a master skier Ernst Stravo Blofeld is the deadliest villain Bond has ever come across.
