* MagnificentBastard: Dalton Russel (Clive Owen). He's literally planned for everything, has contingencies in place, expertly manipulates both the situation and the people involved, and [[spoiler: [[KarmaHoudini gets away scott free]]]]. Madeleine White is heavily implied to be one as well. When the mayor of NYC calls her a "magnificent cunt", she answers "Thank you". While she seems to be playing for the bad guys, in the end it's clear she does her own thing. The biggest problem with classifying her may well be that we don't see enough of her, and she never really demonstrates any {{Chessmaster}} ability.

* {{Anvilicious}}: Vikram's rant about how he is constantly held in suspicion because he looks like he might be an Arab (he is actually a Sikh,) in the post-9/11 world is anything but subtle. Granted, it's a fair point, but he says all this while he is being questioned (politely and respectfully) by two police officers who are trying to get information that could save people's lives, and he seems to care more about bemoaning his unfair treatment at the hands of other people than cooperating with them, making him come across rather unsympathetically.

Granted, it's a fair point, and the cops did handle him a little more roughly than needed (with the police commander later trying to deny that their little comments about the "Arab" ever happened) but he says all this while he is being questioned (politely (rather politely and respectfully) by two police officers detectives who are trying to get information that could save people's lives, and he seems to care more about bemoaning his unfair treatment at the hands of other people than cooperating with them, making him come across rather unsympathetically.unsympathetically.

* WhatAnIdiot: Arthur Case in spades. [[spoiler:If you possess evidence implicating you as a Nazi collaborator, why lock it away in a safety deposit box rather than destroy it on the spot?]]

* NiceJobBreakingItHero: Dalton admits that he pulled the heist out of greed, and assuages his conscience by stealing from (and ensuring the downfall of) a man who collaborated with the Nazis. While it is a very valid point that such evil deeds should be brought to light, what is most likely afterwards is that Case, a man who has dedicated the majority of his life to helping mankind, will simply be replaced by a normal banker, one who cares only about his own profit. All of the possible charities that Case would have continued to help out, are left to rot because a thief thought he found the perfect AssholeVictim.
