* TheDreaded: He thought himself to be a fearful, and powerful figure. This was not the case. He was only seen this way because he was working with ''Sophie'', the real dreaded.

* SimilarSquad: His team is set-up along very similar lines to Leverage Consulting & Associates, though the lack of a Sophie counterpart shakes things up a little. He's TheBigBad, ex-mercenary Mikel Dayan is TheDragon, Colin "Chaos" Mason is TheEvilGenius, and world class thief and infiltrator Apollo is TheDarkChick.

*** But she has been in Juvie.
*** This would seem to be contradicted in "The Broken Wing Job," in which she reminisces about briefly serving time in a French prison.

*** The most logical interpretation is that she was serving time...on purpose,because she needed something from inside the prison. It's not really 'being caught' if it happens deliberately.

* TheBigGuy: If this is a FiveManBand, anyway. Subverted because he's the [[TheNapoleon shortest guy]] in the group. Shortest ''person'' in the group, when the girls are wearing their heels.

* {{Expy}}: Possibly of the Steven Seagal character Casey Ryback from the Under Siege movies. Both are ex military with covert operations, both have an interest in culinary arts, and both tend to not use guns though Ryback does, just not his own and is far more brutal but mostly uses his hands or an enemies own gun or knife.

* RaisedCatholic: Second-gen Irish Nate was, and actually went to seminary school to apparently become a Jesuit. It's implied that he was religious [[HollywoodAtheist until his son died]]. Now he cons and lies for a living. He does use whatever Catholic knowledge he has if the con calls for it; in "[[Recap/LeverageS01E06TheMiracleJob The Miracle Job]]", he helps fake a miracle to help his old family friend, the priest who baptized his son, and in "[[Recap/LeverageS01E03TheWeddingJob The Wedding Job]]" and "The Boys' Night Out Job" he impersonates a priest.

* VillainsWantMercy: [[spoiler: In "The Last Dam Job", Dubenich corners Nate with intent to kill, but unfortunately his gun was empty as he failed to keep track of how many shots he fired while chasing Nate. Nate, however, did keep track, then pulls his own fully-loaded gun on Dubenich. The fatass immediately began pissing his pants and begged Nate not to shoot him while trying to pin blame on Latimer to save his own worthless ass.]]

* MadeOfIron: Eliot can take a lot of punishment due to his occupation as a hitter. He once got hit by a ''car'' in "The Boost Job" and didn't suffer lasting injuries.

Added DiffLines:

* AluminumChristmasTrees: John Rogers points out to fans who call Eliot's eclectic assemblage of skills "unrealistic" that most of them are skills that ''the real-life Christian Kane actually has''. He really is an experienced chef, he really does sing country, and he personally performs every stunt that the insurance will let him (and many that they really, ''really'' wouldn't, if they knew about it beforehand). When he was informed that he needed to learn how to play hockey and fight on skates in time for the shooting of "The Blue Line Job", he said "Okay" and was ready by the time the cameras started rolling.
