* GirlOnGirlIsHot: ''Invoked'' by [[WordOfGod Natalie Portman]] [[http://popwatch.ew.com/2010/12/29/this-weeks-cover-the-oscar-race-is-on/ herself]] as a reason why people should go see the movie. In-universe, if Thomas knows about Nina and Lily's LesYay, he doesn't seem to mind all that much.

* ADateWithRosiePalms: Nina herself. Also, let's not forget the [[NightmareFuel nightmare-inducing]] train scene.



* BittersweetEnding[=/=][[spoiler:GreatWayToGo]]: [[spoiler:Whether or not Nina died from her chest wound, she at least—in her own damaged mind—achieved perfection.]]
** [[WordOfGod Darren however]] confirmed that [[spoiler: Nina does ''not'' die, but rather her injury represents her "[[CharacterDevelopment finally becoming a woman]]". Considering ''[[TraumaCongaLine everything]]'' [[SanitySlippage she endured mentally and physically]], it's good she gets a good ending]].

* ADarkerMe: Nina's 's 'Black Swan' persona. Much of the films revolves around her trying to become this.

* SheepInSheepsClothing: [[spoiler:Lily. She's introduced as a friendly, likable girl who wants to befriend Nina... and she is. It's Nina's paranoia and delusions that make her seem like she's not. Outside of Nina's head, she really ''is'' as nice as she appears.]]

* CorruptTheCutie: Arguably Nina (though it's unclear how much of what she does is just in her head).
