- "I see you've put your money where your mouth is."
- ― James Bond
A seemingly loyal servant to Valentin Zukovsky, Mr. Bullion ultimately double-crosses his boss by working for Elektra King. After tipping her off to Bond's location at the Caviar Factory and the failed assassination attempt, Mr. Bullion resorts to leaving his gold case behind in the KGB Headquarters. The bomb explodes but fails to kill Bond, Christmas Jones and Zukovsky, who ultimately gets his revenge by machine gunning him down during the Maiden's Tower assault in Istanbul.
- Bullion was originally named "The Boa" in the first draft of the film's script and written as a hulking brutish henchman akin to Jaws. These characteristics were incorporated in the film's novelisation which also retained the character's signature gold encrusted maw, effectively making him somewhat of a Jaws knockoff.
