* In ''Disney/BigHero6'', TeenGenius Hiro Hamada is introduced hustling [[FatBastard Yama]] in an underground bot-fight.



* The ''Literature/{{Discworld}}'' conman Moist von Lipwig is probably too smooth to qualify as a hustler (at least before Vetinari starts [[BoxedCrook boxing him]]), but deserves mention for one of his personas, a "lack of confidence trickster" named Edwin Streep, whose down-on-his-luck demeanor and inept Find The Lady game are a cover for forgery (none of the money he loses is real) and pickpocketing (once the marks have shown him where their wallet is, they often never have the chance to discover the money is fake).

* Nick in ''Disney/{{Zootopia}}'' claims to make $200 a day running short cons that are just within legality. For instance, evoking sympathy from Judy to get her to buy an elephant-sized popsicle for his "son" (actually his adult partner Finnick the fennec), then melting the big popsicle down into dozens of lemming-sized popsicles, and collecting the used sticks and selling them to a mouse construction company as lumber.

* The protagonists of ''ItsAlwaysSunnyInPhiladelphia'' run an Irish bar together, but more often than not they abandon their duties in favor of some ShortCon or others. Unlike most examples of this page, they are usually unsuccessful in their endeavors.
