Added DiffLines:

* ConsummateLiar: Neal is this, except when it comes to directly lying to Peter. He has done it, [[OOCIsSeriousBusiness rarely]], but he's much worse at lying to him than anyone else. As the cast includes a lot of con artists and other white collar criminals, there are numerous characters, both among Neal's friends and enemies, who could fit this description, as well.


Added DiffLines:

* MasterActor: Neal is quite skilled at getting into character in order to become one of his many aliases. At one point, Peter calls him an 'alias savant'.

** At the end of "Need to Know", Neal comments that he expected Peter's mustache to be more ''Series/MagnumPI'' and less [[SuperMarioBros Mario]] and was thus disappointed. Guess what he calls Peter when [[spoiler: he goes on the run.]]

* NeverHarmAnInnocent: Neal is highly averse to cons that will involve hurting innocent people, which is one of the major traits that sets him apart from fellow conmen like Keller and makes him sympathetic.

Added DiffLines:

* NonActionGuy:
** Neal. As an incredibly intelligent GuileHero, he's great at ''talking'' his way out of situations, but since he's averse to violence and DoesntLikeGuns, he's not much good at ''fighting'' his way out. The few times he does end up in a physical fight, he loses the upper hand pretty quickly and has to be saved by someone else. In one episode he's heard trying to persuade Peter that he should receive combat training since he's out in the field so much, but Peter understandably shoots this down.
** Mozzie, for similar reasons as Neal.
