* OutGambitted: A bunch of things he thought were going well for him turned out to be Michael setting him up to look corrupt.

Added DiffLines:

* GrimGrizzledGorgeous: As a retired spy, Sam Axe has an extremely shady past, most of which he's not allowed to talk about. Ever. Now that he's older, his favorite hobbies are complaining, smoking, and day drinking. He's up in age and always short on money but he's never hurting for the company of a "lady friend".

* NiceJobFixingItVillain: [[spoiler:Michael may have been wavering given his own feelings for Fi and the increasing shaddiness of Strickler's offers, but he was still willing to play by Strickler's rules. Unfortunately for Strickler, he got too impatient and [[TheyWereHoldingYouBack tried to cut out the middleman (Fi)]], and paid for it with his life by a vengeful Michael's hand]].



A laid back CIA field agent who is quite happy with his position working undercover at the Miami Airport overseeing an import/export business instead of risking his life in the field. He reluctantly becomes Michael's official Agency contact during the first half of season 3, [[spoiler:but is killed by Gilroy before Garza can tell Michael more about Strickler's connections.]]

Added DiffLines:

* InformedAttractiveness: Not that the actress is anything to scoff at, but many of the teams' plans revolve on her being not just attractive, but to stand out amongst the sea of bikini models at any given Miami hot spot.

* DistaffCounterpart: [[spoiler:Of Carla]]. Made especially apparent when it's revealed by Simon's tape to Michael [[spoiler:that Vaughn, despite him claiming earlier in the season he had nothing specifically with Michael's burn notice, told Simon in a recorded conversation that they would be replacing him with Michael "and if he doesn't work out, there'll be another", just like how Carla lied to Victor about being responsible for burning him and killing his family]].

* NeverFoundTheBody: Played rather subtly in the Season 5 summer finale - after [[spoiler:Fiona blows up the office that Larry's in and (with a little help from the new MythArc villain) inadvertently destroys a little more than she meant to]], the paper at the end of the episode says [[spoiler:"'''2''' people killed" (namely, the two [[RedShirt security guards]]).]] Later another character refers to Larry in the past tense and while we have scene or two where we see him in flashbacks, we don't ever see him in the present again.

* TheSociopath: Simon might very well be the best example of anyone on the show. He cares for no long save himself, revels in whatever brings him joy and entertainment, and has zero remorse for any sort of suffering he causes as a result.

* ScrewTheRulesImDoingWhatsRight: Which is why he got pulled out of field work before getting burned. Some people are able to watch innocent get hurt or a woman be beaten in order to maintain a cover identity. Not Jesse.

* WeNeedADistraction: Sam ''specializes'' in making distractions, often [[LargeHam the hammiest]] and [[RefugeInAudacity most audacious]] possible. Further justified in that if a beautiful woman like Fi tries this, odds are the macho guards will want her to stay around, compared to a hammy and boisterous man like Sam will annoy them and want him to leave.
