[[folder:The A-Team]]
!!'''The A-Team'''
* ATeamFiring: Obviously.
* BadassCrew
* BashBrothers: Very much so. Hannibal knows the strengths and weaknesses of each of the other three team members, and knows exactly how to best use their strengths and minimize their weaknesses. Different as they may be, when they all fight together, it's a bad day for slimeballs everywhere.
** Face and Murdock especially seem to be this. They have a very effective tag-team fighting style.
** Doubly so for Murdock and B.A. They usually drive each other nuts, but together they are a force of nature.
* BigDamnHeroes: A lot. Even if it's not for a civilian, they tend to take turns being this for each other.
* TheCon: Sometimes they pull a con together (rather than just Face doing it) and what the con looks like often depends which of the A-Team are involved. There is:
** Face and Murdock. Usually, this mostly involves Murdock taking on a role and confusing the hell out of the mark so anything Face says after that sounds reasonable.
** Face and B.A. tend to have a good cop-bad cop thing going. Face providing a nice way out of whatever B.A. threatened.
** When Hannibal and Murdock team up for a con, the mark ends up so confused that Hannibal and Murdock simply get away with whatever they're trying to pull and the mark is left standing there with their mouth open trying to figure out what the hell just happened.
** Hannibal and Face usually play a very slick game of a larger-than-life bigshot and his BeleagueredAssistant to make the mark think that there's a new large fish in town.
* FiveManBand:
** TheHero / TheLeader / TeamDad: Hannibal
** TheLancer: Face
** TheSmartGuy: Murdock
** TheBigGuy: B.A.
** TheChick: Amy/Tawnia
* MilitaryMaverick: All of them.
-->Decker: "Everybody heard the reports from 'Nam on these guys. They were the best because they're fast, sharp, and unorthodox."
* NoOneGetsLeftBehind: Their philosophy regarding each other.
* ReturningWarVet: All of the regulars that stayed throughout all five seasons.
* ShellShockedVeteran: All of them, to various degrees.
* TrueCompanions
** BandOfBrothers
* WeHelpTheHelpless: They've taken on the role of mercenaries who only take jobs from people who can't get help from anywhere else.
* WronglyAccused: The whole reason they're on the run.

!!'''Colonel John "Hannibal" Smith'''
->Played by: George Peppard (series), Creator/LiamNeeson (film)

The leader of the team.

'''Tropes:'''
* AFatherToHisMen
** TheMenFirst: Always.
* {{Badass}}
** BadassBoast: Quite adept at delivering them.
** BadassGrandpa
** ColonelBadass
* CatchPhrase: "I love it when a plan comes together"!
** Also, "Nice, [insert name of team member who did something really well]."
* CheshireCatGrin: Or as Face puts it:
-->"That's not even a real smile. It's just a bunch of teeth messing with my mind!"
* TheChessmaster
* ChronicHeroSyndrome: He might be a bit less likely to take a request for help at face value, but only because he wants to make sure that it's someone who really needs help (and is not looking to take down himself and his team), and he won't refuse anyone who is genuinely in trouble. Even though he says they work for pay, he often waves the fee or makes Face 'calculate' their expenses to be something that the person can afford.
* CigarChomper: Almost always has a cigar in his mouth (whether lit or not).
* CoolOldGuy
* DeadpanSnarker: Usually towards his enemies.
* {{Determinator}}: Once he's taken on a job, nothing will stop him from finishing it.
* GuileHero
* TheHero
* IShallTauntYou: It's practically a compulsive action for him to taunt the bad guy, no matter what the consequences might end up being.
* TheLeader: Type I.
* ManipulativeBastard
* NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast: His nickname.
* NervesOfSteel: He never loses his cool
* OnlyKnownByTheirNickname: His first name is seldom spoken, not even by his own teammates.
* RebelRelaxation: If he's not in uniform, he's prone to doing this.
* SameFaceDifferentName: George Peppard also played a crook in the fourth season's opener "Judgement Day".
* SmugSmiler: Something his enemies find incredibly infuriating.
* StarringSpecialEffects: In universe example. His 'day job' of acting is built on playing various monsters in b-movie monster flicks.
* TheStrategist: His specialty. His preferred strategy is to manipulate their target into making rash and stupid moves, then drawing them them into a trap.
-->"I love it when a mark's angry; they don't think straight."
* TeamDad
* TheTrickster
* WigDressAccent: Takes every opportunity to put his acting skills to use, taking a great deal of glee in using wigs, fake facial hair, and various costumes.
* TheWonka: He's very unorthodox, in charge of the team, completely addicted to danger, comes up with brilliant and crazy plans, and is easily as crazy as Murdock, if not more so (it's just he, unlike Murdock, doesn't look like it at first glance). Lampshaded by Face.
-->Face: "Hannibal, sometimes I think you're crazier than Murdock."
-->Hannibal (laughs and [[CheshireCatGrin grins]]): "Sometimes I am."

!!'''Lieutenant Templeton "Faceman" Peck'''
->Played by: Dirk Benedict (Tim Dunigan in the pilot) (series), Creator/BradleyCooper (film)

The team's con man, who would get whatever you needed. A true womanizer.

'''Tropes:'''
* TheBarnum: Face genuinely revels in being a Con Man, and never shows signs of wanting to reform. He seems to love the scheme just as much as the payoff.
** FridgeBrilliance: Face, though not a coward by any stretch, often shows signs of not liking violence that much. He probably likes trying to con people so they can get away without a shootout or fistfight - not that he doesn't enjoy the con for its own sake, mind you.
* BeleagueredAssistant: Tends to put on an air of this. Somewhat justified as he is always expected to miraculously produce whatever Hannibal needs for a plan.
-->"[[DudeWheresMyRespect I lie, I cheat, I steal, and I just don't get any respect.]]"
* BewareTheNiceOnes
* TheCasanova: If there is a woman within a hundred miles of the team, Face will find her and (almost always) at least land a date with her.
* TheCharmer
* ChickMagnet: He can attract women even when he's trying to focus on someone else.
* CommitmentIssues: Any time any girl starts talking about making things more permanent, he's out of there faster than a bolt of lightning. Lampshaded many times by women who see through his charms.
* ConMan: His profession when the team doesn't have a job on hand, and he puts those skills to (literal) good use when they are on a job.
* CoolCar: His Corvette.
* ConsummateLiar: He can lie his way into anywhere. Lying his way ''out'', however, is not always such an easy task.
* CulturedBadass: Subverted. He's cultured, but not as much as he likes to pretend (or would like to be, for that matter).
* DeadpanSnarker: All the time. What with all of his companions being extremely quirky, he is never short of things to snark about.
* DistractedByTheSexy: All the time. Unless he's pretty royally ticked off, is in immediate danger, or one of his companions is hurt, keeping Face on-task can be a full-time job for the rest of the team when there is a beautiful woman around.
* DistressedDude: Gets captured and tied up with some frequency.
* EthicalSlut: By his own standards. He won't 'put the moves on' a woman he considers a friend (though this might also be because things would then get complicated) and he would never, ever force a woman (one of the few times a bad guy has managed to get a rise out of him was accusing him of doing so).
* TheFace
* TheFixer: He gets the team whatever they need, usually by scamming it from somebody else (and other times by just being inventive).
* ForHappiness: His general philosophy. He's always out for his own happiness (however, not at the expense of others', unless they can afford it -- e.g. his cons on the rich -- but he doesn't really consider this serious, because they've got more money than they can possibly use anyway). He (unlike Hannibal) doesn't get a rush out of the fights or helping people, but he does like to see good people happy and he'll fight for that.
* HandsomeLech
* HeroismWontPayTheBills: Is usually the first to remind Hannibal of this when Hannibal is inclined to feel generous; however, this is just because he feels someone needs to remind people of practical needs, and is just as likely to wave the bill as Hannibal is when faced with someone who needs help and can't afford it.
* HeterosexualLifePartners: With Murdock.
* HiddenDepths: Was a big fan of detective comics. [[CompletelyMissingThePoint He learned some of his first cons from them.]]
* InferioritySuperiorityComplex: Is extremely proud of his looks, his charm, and his way with the ladies, and will proudly boast about it to anyone, but he's extremely worried about losing any of those things and is extremely manipulable when anyone suggests he's losing his touch.
* TheLancer: He's the practical, cynical, and grounded personality to Hannibal's risk-taking, idealistic, and mercurial one.
* LovableRogue
* ManipulativeBastard
* MetaGuy
* MrFanservice: Both out, and in, story.
* MrViceGuy
* NotInTheFace: As it essential to his cons (and it ''does'' draw the ladies), he's rather understandably concerned about not receiving wounds to his face. Says this trope word for word at least once, and in variations many other times.
** RunningGag: Naturally, it's a running gag that he keeps getting hit in the face.
* NumberTwo: To Hannibal. He keeps things running smoothly and makes sure anything relating to Hannibal's orders runs smoothly. Strangely enough, however, Face does not usually take over command of the team those rare times when Hannibal is out of the picture, but instead often defers to (and acts as NumberTwo) to whoever comes up with a plan, only taking charge if no one else has come up with something.
* OhCrapSmile: Any time any of his schemes or cons go wrong or any time any of Hannibal's plans go wrong.
* OnlyKnownByTheirNickname: Only people from his past or some of his girlfriends call him anything other than his nickname.
* OnlySaneMan: The most normal of the team and knows it.
* ParentalAbandonment: Was dropped off at an orphanage when a baby.
** OrphanageOfLove: While he's rather bitter about not having a family, he never speaks of the orphanage where he grew up with anything other than fondness.
* SarcasticDevotee
* TheScrounger: His greatest specialty. In a NoodleIncident he even scrounged up a '53 Cadillac convertible in the middle of the Vietnam jungle.
* SharpDressedMan: His preferred style of dress.
** BadassInANiceSuit

!!'''Captain H.M. "Howling Mad" Murdock'''
-> Played by DwightSchultz (series) Sharlto Copley (film)

'''Tropes:'''
* ABNegative: Has it.
* AcePilot: Is one.
* {{Adorkable}}: Especially when he has [[ImaginaryFriend Billy]] around or is heading therapy sessions for walnuts in a German accent, or, well, doing just about anything really.
* AttentionDeficitOohShiny: Subverted. He never really lets something distract him, he just adds it into whatever goal he has.
* BadassAdorable: Has ginormous, expressive puppy-dog eyes, a child-like demeanor and sense of wonder and imagination... and served two tours in Vietnam, got three unit citation awards and a silver star (the third highest military decoration in the United States armed forces), worked in the C.I.A., was considered the best and most badass pilot during Vietnam, all of which skills (on top of a ''very'' sharp mind) makes him as dangerous as he is adorable.
* BadassBookworm: From the latest psychology book to [[RayBradbury Bradbury]] to [[HermanMelville Melville]] to SinclairLewis to RaymondChandler, he's frequently either reading an eclectic range of books, referencing, quoting from them, or pretending he's a character (either inspired by or) directly from a book -- oh, and, as a member of the A-Team, does it really need to be mentioned that he's badass?
* BerserkButton: It is a really, ''really'' terrible idea to seriously hurt or threaten someone he cares about.
-->"[[CreepyMonotone You touch one hair on that girl's head and I will not sleep and I will not eat and I will find you. And when I find you, I will feed your head to the flies.]]"
* BewareTheNiceOnes: He's generally a friendly, up-beat, compassionate, and easy-going CloudCuckooLander who is quite difficult to get angry, but anyone those who have managed to tick him off will sooner or later find themselves being given a helping of poetic vengeance, and those that have manged to (heaven help them!) press his BerserkButton found themselves confronted with an [[UnstoppableRage unstoppable]] lance of [[TranquilFury coldly focused fury.]]
* BewareTheSillyOnes: Just because he talks to imaginary animals and people, adopts various ridiculous personas, breaks into song at almost any opportunity, and just generally acts in eccentric and silly manner, doesn't mean he can't kick ass while doing any number of those things at the same time.
* [[BigDamnHeroes Big Damn Hero]]: Single-handedly rescues the rest of the team more than any other one member.
* BriefAccentImitation: He does this with a considerable frequency, liking to jump from one accent to another (or one impression to another) as his whim takes him.
* BunnyEarsLawyer
* CentralIntelligenceAgency: Used to work for them.
* CloudCuckooLander
* ConfusionFu: Very often in his fights, in tactics when he's the one making the plans (usually helped that when he's in charge of the plans, he has precisely one goal in mind: rescuing somebody he cares about, and "not beyond doing ''anything''" to accomplish that), and when he's part of a con with Face (wherein his job is pretty much to make the mark so confused and off-balance that anything Face says after that sounds reasonable).
* CrazyEnoughToWork: Most of the gadgets he makes when without the steadying practicality of his team mates (often, fortunately for them), like his one-person balloons made out of trashbags, deck chairs, and hair dryers.
* CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass
** LetsGetDangerous
* CuddleBug: Often to his teammates' massive discomfort.
* DeadpanSnarker: Surprisingly, since he's not usually the picture of clear thinking, but can be very much so, especially as he tends to be able to see the complete picture, (unsurprisingly) the craziness, and the risks involved in Hannibal's plans better than the others.
-->Hannibal: "This [situation] is your classic Western! We're the cowboys in the box canyon. Easterland and his Indians have got us trapped."
-->Murdock: [[SarcasmMode "Oh, maybe we could trade our way out of this with beaver pelts."]]
* {{Determinator}}: He won't let anything stand between him and helping his team or someone he cares about.
* ExtremeOmnivore: Paint, shaving cream, whole raw eggs... Face lampshades it after the shaving cream
-->Face: "Murdock, you're always eating such weird stuff. Doesn't it ever get to you?"
-->Murdock: "Of course not. *coughs* Look! Bubbles!"
** And again:
-->Murdock: "All this talk about food is making me hungry."
-->Amy: "Murdock, we weren't talking about food, we were talking about parking tickets."
-->Face: "Well, anything sounds appetizing when you're a human garbage disposal."
* FleetingPassionateHobbies: Often has them.
* FunPersonified
* TheGadfly: Towards B.A. Half of what he does he seems to do just to get a rise out of B.A.
* GuiltComplex: Often utters the words ItsAllMyFault or variations on them any time he fails to protect someone or feels that someone has been captured, has been hurt, or will be hurt because of something he's done or failed to do, though his self-blame in the matter is almost always unreasonable. This self-blame often leads to some of the most heartbreaking moments for the audience regarding the CloudCuckooLander, seeing his [[StepfordSmiler light-hearted mask]] slip and seeing the cracks beneath. About the worst thing a bad guy can do to Murdock is give him a BreakingSpeech about how a friend, ally, or client getting hurt or about to be hurt is his fault.
** May be a case of FridgeBrilliance suggesting that part of his mental issues and why he dislikes being in charge might be dealing with feeling responsible for deaths of other soldiers under his command or protection.
* HeterosexualLifePartners: With Face.
* HiddenDepths
* [[ImaginaryFriend Imaginary Pet]]: Billy, his imaginary dog.
* ImprobablePilotingSkills: If it's got wings or rotors, he can fly it.
-->Face: "I got us a Gulfstream. Can you fly it?"
-->Murdock: "Hey, brother, if it's got wings, I can fly it."
-->Face: "Great."
-->*beat*
-->Murdock: "Hey, Face, what's a Gulfstream?"
* InSeriesNickname: H.M. not only stands for his nickname, but also his real name, which we are never told.
* LargeHam
* LastNameBasis: Only the occasional girlfriend calls him anything other than 'Murdock.'
* LunaticLoophole
* MadHatter: Proudly declares his madness.
* ManChild
* MessyHair: Quite frequently.
* NiceHat: His baseball cap.
* TheNicknamer: Mostly towards B.A. and Face, but usually only uses the nicknames a couple of times before coming up with a new one (and in Face's case, he usually comes up with variations or plays on Face's nickname). Is also implied to be the one who came up with the "Face/Faceman" nickname.
* NoSenseOfPersonalSpace: None, except for when he does realise it and invades it anyway for fun.
* ObfuscatingInsanity: Murdock was eccentric (and often plays his CloudCuckooLander -ness UpToEleven to get people to underestimate him) and likely did suffer from some form of PTSD, but was definitely not mad. His team had to break him out of a mental institution in almost every episode. However, at times he faked more extreme insanity to get into an asylum in order to break someone else out, or take down a gun smuggling ring or something. Of course, he might have exaggerated the problem more regularly for the free accommodation and the nurses, or just to irritate B.A. When the situation called for it, Murdock could act completely sane and coldly competent.
* ObfuscatingStupidity: He is [[SouthernFriedGenius extremely smart]], but generally plays dumb to keep people underestimating him. He does this so well, that even Face -- though not Hannibal -- who knows him well will fall into underestimating him.
* {{Omniglot}}: He can speak several languages, including French, German, Mandarin Chinese, and Vietnamese.
* OnlyKnownByInitials: H.M. not only stands for his nickname, but also his real name, which we are never told.
** DwightSchultz was told that 'Howlin' Mad' ''was'' Murdock's real name, but whether this was just the writers pulling one over him... However, if this was so, it makes it into something of a case of SelfFulfillingProphecy.
* OnceAnEpisode: Breaking him out of the asylum. Until the final season, in which he was devastated to learn that he'd been declared sane and released permanently.
* OOCIsSeriousBusiness: There's a handful of instances where he drops his idiot routine and becomes deadly serious. It's a signal the excrement has just hit the jet turbine.
* PopCulturedBadass: Loves Marvel comics, is constantly referencing movies and tv shows (from Monty Python to StarTrek), loves playing arcade games (he even has some in his room in the asylum)and his Atari (he even tried finishing a level while in the process of being abducted) and, like the rest of the team, is not someone to be messed with.
* RaisedByGrandparents: He implies this.
* RhymesOnADime: Especially in "Black Day at Bad Rock."
* SesquipedalianLoquaciousness: When he feels so inclined.
* ShellShockedVeteran: More visibly so than the others; B.A. says Murdock went crazy after his helicopter crashed in Vietnam. No matter the current (as in, during the show) state of his sanity (there has, and is, much debate about how much of it is put on), it is recognised (both by himself and his teammates) that he needed psychological help after Vietnam.
* SouthernFriedGenius: Extremely smart (possibly to genius level) and, if his accent is anything to judge by, from the south.
* TalkativeLoon: To Hannibal and Face's amusement, and B.A.'s constant annoyance. He is constantly talking (whether in English, French, or some other language or accent), singing, and spouting whatever comes into his head.
* TeamChef: After a job where he was the chef for a diner, he liked cooking so much that he becomes this and the others happily let him do so as he's quite good at it.
** LethalChef: (in the film) His idea of cooking steak involves seasoning it with gunpowder and putting anti-freeze in the marinade.
--> '''Face:''' I got a little Bell's Palsy last time.
--> '''Murdock:''' It's only ''partial'' paralysis. Come on, take it like a man!
* TranquilFury: What happens when his BerserkButton is pressed. For example, he once calmly beat a man responsible for shooting Face into unconsciousness, [[ExtremeMeleeRevenge then continued to beat him]] until he was dragged off the guy.
* TheTrickster
* VitriolicBestBuds: With B.A.
-->Murdock: "I'm worried about [B.A.]. It's been almost a full day and we haven't insulted each other; I think I may go into withdrawal soon."
* WackyGuy

!!'''Sergeant Bosco Albert "Bad Attitude" Baracus'''
->Played by: Mr. T (series) Rampage Jackson (film)

'''Tropes:'''
* ABNegative: Has it.
* AlmightyMom: Has one.
* AndStarring
* {{Adorkable}}: When around children or in love. When he's in love he's bashful and very teddy-bearish.
* BadassDriver
* BerserkButton: Murdock mostly. But seriously, it is not in the best interest of any villain to harm (or threaten to harm) a child.
* BewareTheQuietOnes
* TheBigGuy
* BoisterousBruiser
* BruiserWithASoftCenter
* CatchPhrase: "Shut up fool!" to Murdock. And "He's on the jazz" about Hannibal.
* EmbarrassingNickname: "Scooter", the nickname his mother gave to him. It only appears in that episode though.
* EmotionalBruiser
* EnragedByIdiocy: He often gets angry because of Murdock's wacky antics.
* FriendToAllChildren: Surprisingly.
* GadgeteerGenius: His specialty is in creating anything that needs building.
* GeniusBruiser
* GentleGiant: At least, whenever women or kids are present.
* GoodIsNotNice
* GotMeDoingIt: To his immense annoyance, he occasionally picks up whatever verbal tic Murdock has going on for the episode, like rhyming or speaking like he's in a Raymond Chandler novel.
* GrumpyBear
* HairTriggerTemper: Especially when he's near Murdock.
* IncessantMusicMadness: Murdock's constant singing drives him up the wall.
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold
* OnlyKnownByTheirNickname
* OnlySaneMan: Believes himself to be, but, in his own way, is nearly as wacky as Hannibal and Murdock.
* PerpetualFrowner
* PutOnABus: IT ALMOST HAPPENED. Around season 4, which was a hard time for the show, Mr. T many times threatened to quit. Rumors say that NFL Player William "The Refrigerator" Perry would replace him. Luckily, Mr. T decided to stay.
* ScaryBlackMan
* VitriolicBestBuds: With Murdock.
* [[WhyDidItHaveToBeSnakes Why Did It Have To Be Flying?]]: Hates flying, mostly because of Murdock's piloting skills. Giving him drugged milk to knock him out so they can get him on a plane is a RunningGag.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Allied members]]
!!'''Amy Amanda Allen'''
->Played by: Melinda Culea (seasons 1 and 2)

'''Tropes:'''
* AlliterativeName
* BrainyBrunette
* TheChick
* ChuckCunninghamSyndrome: Besides the episode after her departure, in which Decker mentions she's working in Jakarta, Indonesia, Amy just vanished from the series. The final episode of the second season was "Curtain Cull" in which Murdock was seriously wounded. While saving his life, we see flashbacks from previous episodes. And NONE of these flashbacks have Amy in them. They never even mention her again.
* HotScoop
* InSeriesNickname: Triple A.
* OutOfFocus: After the pilot, the characters had little impact in the following episodes, until she was...
* PutOnABus: In the middle of season 2.
* TheSmurfettePrinciple

!!'''Tawnia Baker'''
->Played by: Marla Heasly (seasons 2 and 3 (1 episode))

'''Tropes:'''
* AndStarring: Every episode in which she appears. Unlike Amy, she never was added into the intro.
* TheChick
* HotScoop
* NeverBeAHero: Wants to be involved with doing the dangerous stuff, but she's not so bright in field situations and Hannibal fobs her off with something that keeps her out of the way and makes her feel like she's doing something.
* PutOnABus: Beginning of season 3.
* TheSmurfettePrinciple: But, unlike Amy, she was never a full-time member of the team.
* SuspiciouslySimilarSubstitute: Is one for Amy.
* TheTeamWannabe: Desperately wants to be a full-fledged member of the team. Never happens.
* YouLookFamiliar: Marla Heasly appeared in an earlier episode, as Cherise, one of Face's yacht companions.

!!'''Frankie "Dishpan" Santana'''
->Played by: Eddie Velez (season 5)

Became a fifth member of the team in the final season.

'''Tropes:'''
* PromotedToOpeningTitles: In the first two episodes of that season, Frankie was only a guest star, as he was credited with "And Eddie Velez as Frankie Santana"
* RememberTheNewGuy: Supposedly, Frankie had worked at the film studio for a long time. But before the fifth season, Hannibal, who also worked at the studio, never mentioned a special effects guy named Frankie Santana.
* TheSixthRanger
[[/folder]]

[[folder:US Army]]
!!'''Col. Lynch'''
->Played by: Bill Lucking (season 1 (2 episodes) and season 3 (1 episode))

'''Tropes:'''
* ButtMonkey: Not at all bright, and Hannibal has such fun running around him in circles.
* GloryHound: He only wants to capture the A-Team for the credit and the glory which he hopes will skyrocket his career.
* PunchClockHero / PunchClockVillain: depending on how you want to look at it. Is only after the A-Team because he's ordered to and because catching them might get him promoted.
* PutOnABus: He made a comeback in season 3's episode "Showdown!"

!!'''Col. Roderick Decker''' (seasons 2-4, and 1 episode in season 5)
->Played by: Lance [=LeGault=].

'''Tropes:'''
* ArchEnemy: For Hannibal, in particular.
* ColonelBadass
* ColonelKilgore: Was said to be a little... 'enthusiastic' during the Vietnam war and perpetrated some actions that the army tucked him away in disgrace for before resurrecting him to capture the A-Team.
* GenreSavvy: He never underestimates the A-Team and he has almost captured them a few times. Still, no matter how genre savvy, you cannot win against Hannibal's plans.
* GutturalGrowler: Has a deep, gravely voice.
* InspectorJavert: Is technically on the good side, but is after the WronglyAccused team. He doesn't seem to particularly care whether or not their innocent or guilty, it's just his orders to bring them in.
* {{Jerkass}}
* PutOnABus
** TheBusCameBack: In the fifth season's "Trial on fire".
* SmugSnake
* SuspiciouslySimilarSubstitute: To Lynch, though not as dumb.

!!'''Capt. Crane'''
->Played by: Carl Franklin

Decker's right hand.

'''Tropes:'''
* NumberTwo: To Decker.
* PutOnABus

!!'''Col. Briggs'''
->Played by: Charles Napier (season 3, 1 episode)

'''Tropes:'''
* ChuckCunninghamSyndrome
* SuspiciouslySimilarSubstitute: He only appeared in the episode "Fire!". Originally, Decker was suppose to appear, but actor Lance [=LeGault=] was unable because he was currently working on Magnum PI. Briggs really looked and almost sounds like Decker.
* PutOnABus: After only one episode.

!!'''Gen. Harlan "Bull" Fullbright'''

'''Tropes:'''
* HeelFaceTurn
* KilledOffForReal
* RealMenWearPink: Gen. Fullbright's trademark white scarf. He luckily he didn't wear it when he died.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:US Government]]
!!'''Gen. Hunt Stockwell'''
->Played by: Robert Vaughn (season 5)

'''Tropes:'''
* AndStarring
* CatchPhrase: "Do it... my way!"
* BatmanGambit
* CoolOldGuy: It is Robert Vaughn after all.
* PromotedToOpeningTitles: Unlike the other recurring militaries who chased the A-team during the series, Stockwell would be the first (and only) to be become a main character. It may have something to do with that he's played by the great Robert Vaughn and/or that his character was more important to the storyline than his predecessors.
* TheUnreveal: Unfortunately, the series was canceled before we would know if he really was a bad guy who only used the team for his own good, or actually wanted to clear their names.


!!'''Lt. Sosa'''
->Played by: Jessica Biel (film only)
* {{Tsundere}}: To Faceman.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Other]]
!!'''Col. Morrison'''
->Played by: Various

'''Tropes:'''
* KilledOffForReal: Happened offscreen.
* PosthumousCharacter

!!'''Ray Brenner'''
->Played by: None

Was actually a fifth member of the A-Team during the Vietnam war.

'''Tropes:'''
* TheFaceless
* PosthumousCharacter

!!Mrs. Baracus
->Played by: Della Reese

B.A.'s mother. A ''very'' formidable woman.

'''Tropes:'''
* AlmightyMom
* CoolOldLady
* LikeASonToMe: She loves Murdock and promptly 'adopts' him (and says that if she could legally do so, she would), much to Murdock's utter delight and B.A.'s (apparent) horror.

!!'''The Narrator'''
->Voiced by: John Ashley (seasons 1-4, intro's only)

John Ashley, who was the show's producer during the entire show, did the infamous voice in the intro who said "In 1972..."

'''Tropes:'''
* OpeningNarration: "In 1972 a crack commando unit was sent to prison by a military court for a crime they didn't commit..." And you know the rest.
* TheFaceless
* PutOnABus: Sort of. He didn't do the opening narration anymore for the fifth and final season since it's intro was heavily changed. (Respectively, now the team is finally arrested and working for Stockwell, it became useless to say these lines.)
