* GainaxEnding: The ending might be this depending on how you interpret it. The final scene is somewhere between the ending of [[spoiler:''BeingThere'']], the [[spoiler: Dying Dream]] interpretation of the ending of ''Film/TaxiDriver'' and a surreal-ish ShoutOut to the ending of ''Film/{{Shane}}''. Basically, as the credits roll, [[spoiler:the Driver ''blinks'' after a full minute of corpse-like behavior, proceeds to twist the key and start the engine, and drive off to parts unknown while leaving the money suitcase on the ground next to Bernie's dead body. So, was he dead or not?]]

* WouldntHurtAChild: Paired with DamselInDistress, this trope explains why Driver gets involved in Standard's robbery scheme in the first place, to protect Irene's boy who was given a bullet by the ook who beat up Standard. In effect, the desire to protect Irene & her child is what drives Driver throughout the film.

* BlofeldPloy: Played with. Bernie is piping mad at Nino for trying to pull off a heist, screwing up and potentially getting them both killed by the East Coast mob. To show his dissatisfaction he stabs a {{Mook}} in the eye with a fork, stabs him repeatedly in the throat with a knife and tells Nino "Now it's your turn to clean up after me." The Mook participated in the heist so he was a loose end to be killed like anyone else involved. It was the manner of his death that was meant to show Nino how pissed off Bernie was.

** The Driver never cleans his jacket, walking around in broad daylight with it even when it's stained in blood. The closest he gets to cleaning it is a quick dip in the ocean.

* DiesWideOpen: Teased in the end. [[spoiler:Driver drags himself behind the wheel of his car and stares into space without blinking for nearly a minute straight. He finally blinks, however, and drives away]]. This is a callback to an earlier scene where [[spoiler:he has a staring contest with a boy and claims that the kid blinked first.]]

* HaveYouToldAnyoneElse: Said by Nino. The Driver answers no and gets the response: "You're not very good at this, are you?"

to:

* HaveYouToldAnyoneElse: Said by Nino. The Subverted. Nino asks Driver this question and the Driver answers no and gets the response: no. Nino's response is: "You're not very good at this, are you?"you?" However, it soon becomes clear that the Driver knows this trope but chose to ignore it because he did not want to get anyone else involved and possibly killed.

''Drive'' is a 2011 crime thriller directed by Creator/NicolasWindingRefn, itself based on a 2005 novel of the same name by James Sallis. Creator/RyanGosling plays [[NoNameGiven The Driver]], a stuntman/mechanic in UsefulNotes/LosAngeles who moonlights as a GetawayDriver for robberies. The Driver has isolated and detached himself from just about everyone else in the world, except his boss, [[Creator/BryanCranston Shannon]], and his young neighbor [[Creator/CareyMulligan Irene]], whom he becomes emotionally attached to. After the Driver becomes entangled in a botched heist involving money stolen from the east coast Mafia, he finds his life coming apart and must fight to stay alive and protect the people he's come to care for.

* PrisonersDilemma: Nino and the Driver would be better off if the Driver gave the money back and promised never to talk about it, and Nino left him alone. Of course Nino can't trust him, and decide it's better to kill him.
