He was little. The obvious answer is Jaws, with Dario and Razor on a String close behind.

I have to go with Mr. Wint & Mr. Kidd.  They were pretty creepy.
Kevin: Yes, why does there have to be evil?

Supreme Being: I think it has something to do with free will.

I've always been entertained by those two as well.

Honorable Mention to Goldie from The World is Not Enough

Yea, I thought about including him, Mr. Bullion, but I just thought he was too small to include. I skipped over a few like that in these polls just to conserve my time/energy.

12. Stamper (Goet Otto) from Tomorrow Never Dies[/color][/b]


That is the most important correct answer. I don't care who anybody chooses as their favorite henchmen, provided that loser Stamper gets last place, you're all winners in my book.

I voted Grant from FRWL. He's not only the best match for Bond (and less ludicrous and Jaws), but the film uses him so smartly: we see him a little bit at the beginning but we're not sure what he'll do exactly, then we see some more when he saves Bond's life at the Gypsy camp, and then a bit more, a bit more until...Bam! The bad assery begins in the train cart. Great, great, usage of a Bond henchmen. He's played by Robert Shaw, people!
