* Basher Tarr (Don Cheadle): A Cockney engineer, Basher is in charge of the demolitions and heavy machinery involved in the heists. He speaks in an impenetrable combination of Cockney slang and technical jargon.

* TheDreaded: As mentioned above, Benedict is terrifying because of his penchant for DisproportionateRetribution. However, it goes beyond that; Linus mentions that he's as smart as he is ruthless. When faced with losing his money, he immediately [[spoiler: arranges for a [=SWAT=] team while keeping Rusty on the phone for as long as possible, and has the authorities chase down the escape van.]] When he realizes that there's more to the heist than it appears, he [[spoiler: goes straight for Danny and clearly doesn't believe his story. What he didn't realize was that they ''planned'' for him to act this way.]] Even though the movie ends on a positive note, it's revealed that [[GenreSavvy Terry]] [[spoiler: sent some of his enforcers to follow Danny, Tess, and Rusty.]] This pays off in the opening of ''Ocean's Twelve'', when he personally tracks them all down (and bombs Rusty's car!) and demands his money back... ''with interest''. When he becomes the crew's backer in ''Ocean's Thirteen'', they're all wary of him [[spoiler: and know he'd betray them]] and planned accordingly. The fact that he deals with all of this with almost complete TranquilFury makes it even more unnerving.

* The first film, '''''Ocean's Eleven (2002)''''', involves Danny, an ex-con fresh out of prison, approaching his buddy Rusty about performing a monumental heist. The goal? Rob the central vault of three UsefulNotes/LasVegas casinos at the same time, during a boxing match so that the grand total in the safe would be a little over $160 million. They gather the Eleven and come to learn that the man they are robbing, Terry Benedict, is a man whose principal crime seems to be that he's dating Danny's ''ex-wife'' Tess.
* The second film, '''''Ocean's Twelve (2005)''''', deals with repercussions of their heist, as Benedict tracks down the Eleven and demands recompense in full, plus interest. Seeing as almost none of the eleven were frugal with their money, this means they have to find some other heist that will pay off an equal amount. Because they are too well known in the US, they travel to Europe and receive an offer from a legendary retired ConMan in which they steal a very famous MacGuffin. They are hounded on one side by a cocky acrobat-thief who wants the same loot, and a FairCop Interpol agent on the other.

This is the story of a crew of expert thieves as they prepare and execute multiple very difficult heists across several movies. It's called ''Ocean's Eleven'' because the leader's name is Danny Ocean, and there are eleven of them. Originally a remake of the 1960 film ''Film/{{Oceans 11}}'' starring Music/FrankSinatra and the Creator/RatPack, it went on to [[AdaptationDisplacement displace]] the original and spawn two sequels, imaginatively titled ''Ocean's Twelve'' and ''Ocean's Thirteen''. There is also an upcoming spinoff, featuring an all-female cast: ''Film/OceansEight''.

* IdiotBall: Much of the heist in ''Twelve'' seems to be doomed to fail, due to boneheaded mistakes and desperate improvising. Especially when Rusty doesn't tell the others about Isabel, when the crew [[spoiler: steals part of the Night Fox's art collection and]] lets themselves be caught on security cameras, and pretty much everything involving Tess. It's not until the end do we find out that [[spoiler: they knew they were under surveillance, stole the egg days before, and that their botched heist and arrests were a huge distraction.]]

* FullNameUltimatum: Terry provides a dark version of this in ''Twelve'', when he personally calls and threatens Rusty, whose real name is Robert Charles Ryan.

** About halfway through ''Twelve'', Rusty visits Isabel in what seems like a half-assed attempt to get his phone back and persuade her to join the team. Some of Rusty's statements don't make any sense, to both Isabel and the audience. Once the true heist is revealed, you realize that Rusty was giving her clues that [[spoiler: the eggs had already been switched, they'd already stolen the real one, and that the team planned to "fail" all along.]] He was being deliberately cryptic because he knew [[spoiler: the Night Fox had them under surveillance.]]

* FirstNameBasis: Due to their previous relationship, Isabel is the only character to call Rusty by his real name: Robert.

* RealityIsUnrealistic: In ''Twelve'', the priceless Fabergé Egg is transported to Rome by [[spoiler: a courier walking on-foot to a train station and guarded by only a couple of guys, while the decoy is sent via heavy security with a ceremonious display.]] It's very similar to how the [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cullinan_Diamond#Journey_to_England Cullinan Diamond]] was transported from South Africa to England in 1905, and that method was even ''more'' risky.
