** Almost everyone they con is white. They con an Indian guy, but then realize that he's not that bad and that they've put his entire factory out of work, so they give him money from another con. In another episode, they're conning an African dictator (and obvious Robert Mugabe [[NoCelebritiesWereHarmed parallel]]) but then [[spoiler: it turns out that he was Mickey in disguise, and they're actually conning somebody else]]. Another episode has them conning an Indian sweatshop owner, but [[spoiler: he completely reforms himself, so they can't finish the con]].

* StolenByStayingStill: In "New Recruits", Mickey and the crew pull a con where they convince a pair of marks that the painting they declared to be 'unstealable' has just been stolen. The crew do this by erecting a fake wall directly in front of the wall where the painting is hanging.

* IgnoredConfession: In "The Fall of Railton FC", Ash temporarily CannotTellALie as the result of a head injury. When TheMark asks him if there is anything else he should know, Ash tells him that the entire deal is a con and they are planning to steal his money. He then bursts out laughing, turning it into a SarcasticConfession that TheMark cheerily ignores.

A British {{dramedy}} show (2004-2012) centered around a group of con artists who specialize in the LongCon and [[EvenEvilHasStandards only con]] those who deserve it. [[SpiritualSuccessor Highly inspired]] by ''Film/TheSting''--it's mentioned more than once and almost every con that appeared in the film ends up being played in ''Hustle'' at some point.

* SerialEscalation: In Season 1, £500k is a significant sum of money, worthy of a season-ending 'big con'. By the time Seasons 6-7 come around, half a million is just an average score from a standard episode. And then of course, in the series finale in Season 8 it gets turned [[UpToEleven Up To Eleven]] as the team go for a truly monstrous score - £10 million, enough to walk away for good.

* TheDogWasTheMastermind: In the episode "Conning the Artists" [[spoiler: the honour killing was all an elaborate cover for a con a 10 year old girl came up with so her and her brother could escape their landlord/boss who the team had conned that very week. With the money the team took from him and their new mark's money]]

* RealAfterAll: In one episode, the team takes down a corrupt newspaper publisher by making him believe in an old urban myth: That the Queen Mother was killed in a bombing in World War II and the Royal Family had an actress take on the role to maintain public morale. They're a bit thrown when MI-5 agents question them, figuring it's just because they're doing something with the Royals and later laugh at how the publisher was ready to buy this. But at the end of the episode, we see what is quite clearly Queen Elizabeth II at a small cemetery, placing flowers on the grave of the "actress..."
