Gustav Graves - James Bond Wiki

Appears in:


  • Toby Stephens
  • Will Yun Lee (as Colonel Moon)

Who he is:

  • Initally known as Colonel Tan-Sun Moon, a psychopathic renegade North Korean military seeking to wage war in Korea for his own profits. Bond left him for dead.
  • In fact, he survived and managed to undercome a complete change of skin, face and identity, using a very advanced genetic technology.
  • He now passes as Gustav Graves, a young and brilliant British billionaire who claims to have made a fortune from a diamonds mine he discovered in Iceland (which is actually a cover for his blood diamonds network).

Attempted methods of killing Bond:

  • Shooting at him (as Colonel Moon)
  • Tries to roast him with a flamethrower during the hovercraft chase (as Colonel Moon)
  • Uses martial arts against Bond during the hovercraft chase (as Colonel Moon)
  • Tries to kill him in a fencing duel
  • Tries to kill him with the Icarus satellite's heat ray in Iceland
  • Uses a suit equipped with an electro-shock weapon

Evil scheme:

  • To use a giant mirror mounted on a satellite in space as a laser weapon to explode the land-mines planted in the DMZ separating North and South Korea, laying the way for an armed invasion of South Korea by North Korean generals under his command.

How plans were foiled:

  • When he was Colonel Moon, Bond destroyed a large chunk of his forces, his father uncovered parts of his scheme, and he was left for dead, but not for long...
  • Aboard his plane, he shoots his father, and also shoots a window on the plane (bad aim) forcing all of the passengers, with the exception of Bond and himself, to be sucked out of the plane. Bond eventually uses Graves' own electro-shock suit and parachute to force him out of the plane, at which point he is chopped up inside of the jet engine.

How he is dispatched:

  • As Colonel Moon, he is thought to have died by falling off a waterfall at the end of the hovercraft chase in North Korea. Turns out he survived.
  • He is sucked into his airplane's engine.


Defining dialogue:

  • "Besides, there's plenty of time to sleep when you're dead."

  • Graves: You see, Mr. Bond, You can't kill my dreams, but my dreams can kill you! Time to face destiny!
  • Bond: (opens Grave's parachute, which is caught in the plane's reactor) Time to face gravity!
  • Graves: (Bond activates Grave's suit's electric shock) AAAAAAAHHHHHHH!!!!!
  • (Graves is sucked into the plane's engine and dies in the explosion)

Question- Why did his suit come with an "electrocute self mode"?
