- Harold Sakata (1920-1982).
- He was a pro wrestler and Olympic weightlifter, winning a silver medal in weightlifting for the USA in the 1948 London Games. In real life, unlike Oddjob, he was a very different person. When Harold was training for the Olympics in York, Pennsylvania, at the York Gym, he was said to walk to the gym every day barefoot in the snow, singing all the way. All statements made of Harold at the time were that he was a happy, friendly person. And later, he became a very loved family man who just happened to play out the role of Oddjob again in the pro wrestling ring.
- Auric Goldfinger - Though Goldfinger betrays Oddjob by leaving him locked in the Fort Knox Gold Depository with an atomic bomb ticking, he is loyal enough to sacrifice himself and tries everything to stop Bond's attempts to disarm the bomb.
Attempted methods of killing Bond:
- Basic butt kicking along with his razor sharp top hat.
How plans were foiled:
- Bond manages to kill him and disarms the bomb.
How he is dispatched:
- Bond electrocutes him through his hat, which was stuck by Bond between the bars of the Fort Knox gold depository.
- "Ah! Ah!"
- (Goldfinger explains that though a very effective man-servant, Oddjob is mute)
- During an interview on The Tonight Show, Sean Connery was asked about injuries while filming Bond pictures. Connery recounted that his worst injury was running into Harold Sakata's hand while filming their fight scene.
- Sakata would also go on to play a side kick to a hunter (Rory Calhoun) on Gilligan's Island. Calhoun stated that Harold is "too soft hearted to spear a woman".
- Sakata was really electrocuted during his character's death scene.
