This article is too long and I think it should be split as the page is 120thingos long. (nearly 70kb over the suggested limit. I think it should be split in to 21 articles by each film. My other choice would be to remove all the infoboxes and images to clean up the article. SpecialWindler 05:22, 31 October 2006 (UTC)
Disscuss it here-
- Split:As I said before, it would be easier to identify if there wernt as big page. SpecialWindler 05:22, 31 October 2006 (UTC)
Yes I agree that the page should be split into each film. Individual articles were likely to remain stubs and were isolated. Ernst Stavro Blofeld 10:12, 31 October 2006 (UTC)

"Never Say Never"
That movie was not an "official" James Bond film, see James Bond#Unofficial. Cbrown1023 21:02, 1 November 2006 (UTC)
- I had the same thought. "James Bond henchmen" is just wrong. This should really be renamed as List of henchmen from the James Bond novels and films, which at least doesn't say suggest whose henchmen they are (and it can be assumed they aren't Bond's.SBHarris 16:59, 5 July 2009 (UTC)
Whoever created the title needs to check a dictionary before posting: 1. an unscrupulous and ruthless subordinate, esp. a criminal 2. an unscrupulous supporter or adherent of a political figure or cause, esp. one motivated by the hope of personal gain: 3. a trusted attendant, supporter, or follower. The title should be changed to "James Bond Villains." 220.127.116.11 (talk) 09:07, 8 August 2010 (UTC)
I've put in a list of novels where it said expansion was needed. If someone else could start putting in characters, and maybe even write some articles for each author, that would be greatly appreciated. I'm reading through all the novels again, so I could put in some henchmen (and women), but since Gardner had so many twists in his novels there would have to be some sort of spoiler warning and I don't know the policy toward those.--Sheavsey33 (talk) 11:37, 15 November 2009 (UTC)
Whisper--Kananga's henchman. If you listen to Kananga describe the canisters you'll find that they're water-tight--not air-tight. There's a difference. Whisper could most likely breathe when Bond quickly trapped him in there. He was probably later arrested by Felix Leiter and taken into custody. 18.104.22.168 (talk) 14:16, 14 March 2015 (UTC) — Preceding unsigned comment added by 22.214.171.124 (talk) 14:08, 14 March 2015 (UTC)
henchman or innocent employee?
I've removed a few entries (again) from this list. The following characters are not henchmen (or women) because they do not actively or consciously work to further the main villian's evil plans. For example, the "PR lady" in Tomorrow Never Dies is not a henchman because she is just an announcer/translator to the launch evening. She has no intention or active role in furthering Carver's schemes, unlike Stamper, Gupta and Kaufman.
If we include such characters as the PR Lady, a Zorin investor, the "Gift Bag girl" who have negligble direct evil intentions, then where do we stop? Why not include the valet parking guy who Bond warns to "not let her boss [him] about", also in Tomorrow Never Dies? Why not Peaceful Fountains of Desire, who really is an agent under cover?
- I personally believe that every notable henchman should be listed. Sure if we just see them in the background or someone then no but characters like Gift Bag Girl played parts. Was she doing what she was told or was she an affiliate of Quantum? We don't know but all we saw was her helping Quantum out at the Opera. And as for the PR Lady, if she was just some random backgrounder with one line then no. We aren't listing every other employee there right? But she was a notable presence. She spoke various times and each time she was reporting to Carver, which makes her his henchman. A henchman doesn't always have to be evil just an employee.

- Many people in the film have a "notable presence" - but that does not make them a henchman. Look up the meaning of the word. To be included as a henchman they need to have direct, and conscious involvement with the evil plans. As to your argument about the PR lady, you're correct that "We aren't listing every other employee there right?" - and in fact we don't list the three security guards who Bond has a fight with while the PR lady is PR-ing in the main hall. Surely if you think she is to be included, then shouldn't the security guards as well? Why are we not including the Captain of the Stealth boat? A line needs to be drawn, and unless you can source the claim that these people are notable henchmen, it's drawn here, all according to Wikipedia guidelines and polcies.

Can someone tell me why trevelyan is absent from this list?
I have corrected several errors on this list. The fates of the "perfect race" individuals (male and female) are never revealed. It's possible and likely they died in the explosion of the station, or were shot by the US forces, but this is never shown on screen. In addition, at no point is Goodhead every shown shooting any female character. In fact Moonraker reviews often point out that once the final battle begins all female characters vanish except for Goodhead and Dolly. Having seen the film many times over the last 36 years, most recently just a few weeks ago, I've made corrections. 126.96.36.199 (talk) 14:09, 30 September 2015 (UTC)
Domino? And Lupe.
Should Domino be here? She is, and I'm all for listing any and every employee of the villain who helps them in any way with their schemes (i.e. Jill Masterson, Andrea Anders, Lupe Lamora), but all I remember Domino doing was being beside Largo a few times. He never had her do anything or help him, as far I remember. Which leads me to Lupe Lamora. I think she should be added. She may have been working to help Bond and may not have been evil, but she was essentially a henchwoman for Sanchez. He told her to go down and watch Bond at the casino and told her to see him out that one time. That makes her a henchman. Scream4man (talk) 23:36, 3 December 2015 (UTC)
- The user is still doing this and removing other info as well. Someone do something, please? Scream4man (talk) 07:49, 29 December 2015 (UTC)
- Why has the fate of the henchmen been removed? The Villains in the Main Villains list still reveals the fate of the villain.
