Looks like there's a sting operation going on! The Mark is a role in TheCon, the ''target'' of TheTale. To a great extent the nature of the mark defines whether the ConMan is operating as a {{Trickster}} who is initiating an awakening, or is simply a {{Villain}}.

{{Villain}}. The Mark is often called "the pigeon" by The Con.

* The ''Literature/{{Discworld}}'' novel ''Going Postal'' is essentially a battle between two conmen. To the villain, [[CorruptCorporateExecutive Reacher Gilt]], TheMark is the entire city of Ankh-Morpork, and the other members of the board of the Grand Trunk Semaphore Company. To the hero, [[LoveableRogue (mostly) reformed conman]] Moist von Lipwig, the mark is Reacher Gilt.
** In his next appearance, ''Making Money'', Moist has moved up to making the city his mark -- with the trick being that the "con" is moving them from the gold standard to paper money. He's not entirely certain if this is because is ''is'' a con, or if he [[WhenAllYouHaveIsAHammer just thinks that way]], or if a con believed by enough people for long enough [[ClapYourHandsIfYouBelieve becomes something else entirely]].

* In professional wrestling, a "mark" refers to anyone who watches pro wrestling but does not have a job in the business of it. They were called as such because the goal of the "smarts", the people who did work in the business, was to make the marks believe the pro wrestling bouts were not cooperative. After {{kayfabe}} was exposed, the term "{{smart mark}}" developed among some who now thought they knew what was going on, even though they still did not actually work in the business. Some find "smart mark" [[KnowNothingKnowItAll pretentious]] and mark a GrandFatherClause but some have embraced the term, Smart Mark video being a good source for fans who want to see matches and interviews, for instance.

* There was one of these on every episode of ''{{Hustle}}'', but it wasn't always who you thought it was. However, they always made great play of the fact that TheMark was always thoroughly deserving of being fleeced. Just in case anyone thought that conning people might be bad, m'kay?
