List of henchmen of James Bond villains

The James Bond novels and films are notable for their memorable villains and henchmen. There is typically one particularly privileged henchman who poses a formidable physical threat to Bond and must be defeated in order to reach the employer. These range from simply adept and tough fighters, such as Donald 'Red' Grant, to henchmen whose physical characteristics are seemingly superhuman, such as Oddjob.
