The Complete History of Bond Villains

Nick Nack

Appeared In: The Man with the Golden Gun (1974)
Played By: Hervé Villechaize
Diabolical Weapon: An adorable little knife
Killed By: Survives, captured

He is pint-sized, but Nick Nack has climbed to the top of the Bond villain heap in recent years. As Francisco Scaramanga’s assistant in The Man with the Golden Gun, this tiny ball of malice makes his presence known during a failed assassination attempt on 007 that leaves the little guy stuffed inside of a suitcase. For a character that had the potential to be nothing more than a cheap gimmick, Nick Nack was deceitfully dangerous because of how elusive and vicious he was. The best henchmen in these movies always straddle the line between hated and beloved, and none did that better than Nick Nack.
