* CreatorCouple: With his life partner Ceán Chaffin, who's produced all his movies from ''Film/TheGame'' onwards.
* DevelopmentHell: Had signed on to do the animated adaption of ''ComicBook/TheGoon'', but the film is currently in the process of finding funding. The short teaser trailer, starring Creator/PaulGiamatti as Franky and Creator/ClancyBrown as Goon, can be found online, though- it's generally regarded as being pretty awesome.
** His attempted adaptation of ''Literature/TwentyThousandLeaguesUnderTheSea'' similarly languished for years before eventually being abandoned,
* DoingItForTheArt: In an interview around the time of the release of ''Fight Club'', he explained that he doesn't derive the least amount of pleasure from directing films and only does it for the challenge and sense of satisfaction that comes when the film is finished.
* ExecutiveMeddling:
** His battles with marketing departments how to sell his movies. A notable example is ''Fight Club'', which was marketed as a RatedMForManly action film in contrast as to what the film's actually about. A more successful fight was over ''Literature/GoneGirl'' due to their intention to give away TheReveal that [[spoiler:Amy faked her own kidnapping.]] [[https://soundcloud.com/maaarine-2/david-fincher-feat-brad-pitt-on-marketing-departments This snippet]] from the ''Film/{{Se7en}}'' commentary describes his struggles.
** He also battled with producers over the ending of ''Seven'' and some of the more mature content in ''Fight Club''.



* OldShame: For him at least, ''Alien 3''.



* ProductionPosse: He has repeatedly collaborated with screenwriter Andrew Kevin Walker, actor Creator/BradPitt, cinematographer Jeff Cronenweth and musician [[Music/NineInchNails Trent Reznor]].



* SleeperHit: Most of his films become either this or an AcclaimedFlop.

* SternTeacher: Widely known as a taskmaster, who will have actors do take after take after take until it's perfect. However, many actors end up respecting if not outright appreciating his methods. Fincher also mentored Mark Ruffalo when the latter directed his first film, the two having worked together ''Film/{{Zodiac}}''.

* PrimaDonnaDirector: He has a Creator/StanleyKubrick-like obsession with getting actors to do take after take of the same scene. Given the quality of his work, it's almost always worth it.

It should also be noted that despite this, he is very respectful and amicable towards his actors and enjoys good relationships with them.
