* SirNotAppearingInThisTrailer: Yusuf, despite being a key player in the dreamscape, doesn't appear much in the promotional material, certainly not as much as the big stars. Mal isn't in much of the trailers either, though she does make it to the posters. In fact, on the main theatrical release poster that shows the entire team, Yusuf is pictured despite the fact his actor isn't among the [[AllStarCast sizeable billing list of actors]]; even Creator/PetePostlethwaite and Tom Berenger receive a mention in the billing despite appearing just a few minutes apiece in the film, but poor Dileep Rao is left out.

* GlamourFailure: Saito figures out that the ActionPrologue is a DreamWithinADream -- ''not'' because of the explosions happening everywhere, but because ''the shag carpet on the floor of his girlfriend's apartment is polyester, not genuine wool''.

Saito is definitely earning his salary as TheChessmaster.

Added DiffLines:

* ChekhovsTimeTravel: The "limbo" subconscious level of dreamworlds (if counting as a functional alternate dimension) that is brought up quite early on is exploited come the climax of the film, becoming a dramatic device with Cobb and Ariadne deliberately killing themselves to get there [[spoiler:to save the lives of Saito and Fischer]]. It also gives Cobb closure with Mal.

* AGlitchInTheMatrix: The movie spinds on it. With what the individual weirdness of dreams, and the weaponized one that is the top.

* EverythingTryingToKillYou: If you meddle with someone's dream too much, all the nice not-real people (and architecture) start getting feral. And they always know who's doing it. And sometimes, [[spoiler:what's effectively [[SilentHill Pyramid Head]] finds her way in.]]

* FollowTheLeader: Not the movie itself, but the advertising: it's become increasingly common for movie trailers to use the same '''''[[MemeticMutation BWOOOONNNG]]''''' sound effect used in ''Inception'''s teaser.



* ShootTheMoney: Did they ever. Filming took place in six different countries, and the filmmakers made sure to make creative use of the exotic scenery. They don't just show you downtown Paris -- ''they fold it on top of itself''. They don't just set a few scenes in an ancient Japanese castle -- ''they flood it, and then blow it up''. And so on.

* PrefersTheIllusion: This is the one danger of falling into [[FateWorseThanDeath Limbo]]. Because the time dilution causes a dream to last for ''decades'', the mind will live out an entire lifetime that becomes the dreamer's new reality. By the time the dream ends and they wake up, they'll have either lost touch with reality or have lost all mental faculties.
