Blofeld (From Russia With Love)

The James Bond novels and films are notable for their memorably despicable villains and henchmen. From Le Chiffre's encounter with Bond in the original Casino Royale novel in 1953 to Lyutsifer Safin's scheme in the 2021 film, No Time To Die, Bond's foes have been one of the most important reasons for the book and film series' continued popularity. Listed here are the franchise's primary villains.
