• Before making a single edit, Tropedia EXPECTS our site policy and manual of style to be followed. Failure to do so may result in deletion of contributions and blocks of users who refuse to learn to do so. Our policies can be reviewed here.
  • All images MUST now have proper attribution, those who neglect to assign at least the "fair use" licensing to an image may have it deleted. All new pages should use the preloadable templates feature on the edit page to add the appropriate basic page markup. Pages that don't do this will be subject to deletion, with or without explanation.
  • All new trope pages will be made with the "Trope Workshop" found on the "Troper Tools" menu and worked on until they have at least three examples. The Trope workshop specific templates can then be removed and it will be regarded as a regular trope page after being moved to the Main namespace. THIS SHOULD BE WORKING NOW, REPORT ANY ISSUES TO Janna2000, SelfCloak or RRabbit42. DON'T MAKE PAGES MANUALLY UNLESS A TEMPLATE IS BROKEN, AND REPORT IT THAT IS THE CASE. PAGES WILL BE DELETED OTHERWISE IF THEY ARE MISSING BASIC MARKUP.

Sometimes bad guys make the best good guys.


Leverage is a crime Dramedy which follows the exploits of Leverage Consulting & Associates, a team of criminals led by a former insurance investigator. The team takes a modern-day Robin Hood approach of finding people and corporations who have committed wrongs and attempting to restore justice as they see it, using their skills to run elaborate Ocean's Eleven-style cons on their targets. Think of them as a modern-day version of The A-Team.

The series ran for five seasons.

One of the show creators is John Rogers, better known on the Internet as Kung Fu Monkey. If you see something about the show cited as Word of God, it probably comes from somewhere on his blog.

This show has a work-in-progress character sheet.

It's also so full of Shout Outs it's practically Reference Overdosed, so be sure to check out the new Shout Out page.

It has an across-the-pond counterpart in Hustle. While the general concept is the same and at least one prominent guest star appeared on both shows, the two shows are unrelated.

Also check out Leverage: Redemption.

Alright, let's go steal ourselves some tropes...
