Before we had downplayed tropes we had... arguably a subversion.
** Trigger is arguably a subversion of the trope, because he's a victim of Del just as often but doesn't appear to realise he's being messed about, happily (though unwittingly) acting to his own detriment in the interests of "helping out a friend". Moreover, Trigger's sporadic attempts at trading usually result in ''Del'' somehow getting screwed over, so they're probably pretty even on that count.

British SitCom running from 19811991, with a series of {{ChristmasSpecial}}s until 2003. The series followed the adventures of the Trotter family, who lived in a council flat in Nelson Mandela House, a tower block in Peckham, London, but aimed to become millionaires. They drove a yellow Reliant Regal van (frequently erroneously referred to as a Reliant Robin) and often frequented their local pub, ''The Nag's Head''.

* TrickedIntoSigning: An episode has Del tricking a pub singer into signing a contract by making it look like he's asking for an autograph (he doesn't even have to lie that much either, he just lets the singer '''assume''' it's an autograph). Ironically, towards the end of the episode, it's the singer who threatens Del with the contract to get what he wants (i.e his pay).

* Trigger (Colin Ball): Not because he carries a gun but "because he looks like [[RoyRogers a horse]]". [[AccidentalMisnaming Always called Rodney "Dave"]], and could never be persuaded otherwise. Originally a small-time crook who supplied Del with dodgy merchandise, he [[CharacterDevelopment became]] a {{Cloudcuckoolander}} and not the sharpest spoon in the drawer. Played by Roger Lloyd Pack, who would also appear in ''TheVicarOfDibley''.

* UnwantedGiftPlot: In "Time On Our Hands", Del buys Rodney a gold identity bracelet [[AccidentalMisnaming inscribed with the name "Rooney"]]. Rodney can't quite bring himself to say he doesn't like it, even as ever more people notice the name "Rooney" and comment on it.
