* DisproportionateRetribution: Benedict is feared because of his tendency to ''completely destroy'' the live of anybody who wrongs him, and everybody related to them as well. While doing recon on him, Linus informs Rusty that Benedict not only had the last guy who cheated in his casino put away for ten years, but he also had the bank seize the guy's house before bankrupting the tractor dealership of the guy's brother-in-law. As Reuben describes Benedict:

** In ''Thirteen'', when talking about the absolute nightmare the crew plans to put the (completely unwitting and entirely innocent) Five Diamond Award reviewer through, Saul says it's so awful he wouldn't do it ''willingly'' for ten million dollars. [[spoiler: They use one of their slot machine tricks to give him an ''eleven'' million dollar jackpot as compensation for his role in the heist.]]

* PseudoCrisis: In ''Eleven'', one of the 11 is tasked with sneaking into the vault, jumping to avoid the sensors in the floor, then placing explosives on the door to let the other robbers in. During the last bit, he gets his hand stuck, leaving him without cover, right as the guys are on the other side of the door about to blow it. After playing it for all the suspense they can...the detonator's batteries are dead. Then, once that's been resolved, they blow the door open...and find their inside man safe inside, wondering what took them so long.

* PyhrricVillainy: Benedict in ''Thirteen'': he managed to get one of the things he wanted (humiliate Bank), but his cut of the heist's loot is gone and so may be his reputation as a man who makes anybody who angers him [[DisproportionateRetribution pay with interests]] [[spoiler:because the Eleven picked up on the fact that he hired Toulour to double-cross them and get Bank's diamonds, so [[InvoluntaryCharityDonation they gave all of Benedict's cut away to an orphan camp]] and he can't do anything about it without the threat of the press painting him as a monster.]]

%%* * ChekhovsGun: The black backpack the group is carrying in ''Twelve''. [[spoiler:Turns out that the Faberge Egg that was the objective of Toulour's challenge had been stolen by them in transit and been carried around for most of the movie, and the failed heist was just an act.]]
* ChekhovsGunman: Multiple examples:
** On the second film, Isabel talks on her briefing about master thief Gaspar [=LeMarque=], who has never been caught (but apparently retired) and taught Toulour how to steal. [[spoiler:Gaspar is her father, is ashamed at the fact that Toulour caused so much grief to the Eleven for the sake of petty revenge, and accepts to help them if they can make Isabel meet him, which they do.]]
** The elder Caldwells. On both ''Twelve'' and ''Thirteen'' early on there is a scene where Linus goes into a [[MyBelovedSmother Beloved Smother]] angst-fest because Danny and Rusty talked to them and he didn't wanted them to know anything about how he was doing as a thief... [[spoiler:and then it turns out that the FBI agents that were after the Eleven on both films were Linus' parents (mom on ''Twelve'', dad on ''Thirteen'') that used their roles within the government to help with the heist, mostly by falsely arresting members of the team and helping them get away, thus misdirecting the mark.]]
