* GainaxEnding: Most of his films lack a comprehensible ending, including ''Twin Peaks'' but [[AvertedTrope excluding]] the aptly-named ''The Straight Story''.

Added DiffLines:

* AuthorAppeal: Head injuries and/or deformities, the United States, mechanical/industrial imagery, [[LittlePeopleAreSurreal dwarves]], retro-style music, and people dancing, often at really weird times.


Added DiffLines:

* {{Eagleland}}: A mixture of both flavors, Lynch likes to take both the proud and patriotic and juxtapose it with the ludicrous and depraved. All but two of his works (''Dune'' and ''The Elephant Man'') are set in the US. ''The Straight Story'' is, appropriately, the only er, straight example of Flavor 1.

* NonActorVehicle: Lynch loves casting singers in acting roles. This starts with Sting's performance in ''Dune'', continuing to David Bowie and Chris Isaak appearing in ''Fire Walk With Me'', and Marilyn Manson and Henry Rollins have cameos in ''Lost Highway''. Finally, Billy Ray Cyrus has a hilarious cameo in ''Mulholland Drive''. Also Rebekah del Rio in ''Mulholland Drive'' and ''Rabbits'', though she sticks to singing.

* MagicalRealism: Most of his films fall into the genre in some way or another. Some are realistic but extremely bizarre (''Blue Velvet'', ''The Straight Story'') while others go into the realm of pure fantasy (''Twin Peaks'') and beyond (''[=Eraserhead=]'', good god, ''[=Eraserhead=]''...). The rest are, well.... somewhere in between. [[MindScrew It's not like we can really be sure or anything.]]

Added DiffLines:

* EeriePaleSkinnedBrunette: Appears to have something of a fetish for this, akin to Hitchcock's for blondes.

Added DiffLines:

* MundaneHorror: Another one of his trademarks. The "man behind Winkies" scene in ''Film/MulhollandDrive'' and the party scene in ''Film/LostHighway'' deserve special mention.
