* GainaxEnding: In the prologue to the graphic novel sequel to the book, [[spoiler:most, if not all, of the ending is implied to have been just the Narrator's own hallucinations while in the mental institution. A variant of the book's undeniably happened, except with Marla giving a more definite declaration of affection and onset of pregnancy, but the confrontation with Tyler is framed through both electro-shock therapy and the actual shot through the cheek.]]

** Fight clubs are also real. They're not so much anarchist cults as they are guys beating the shit out of each other and betting on it.

* SpiritualSuccessor: To {{Heathers}}.



* TechnologyMarchesOn: A few minor examples:
** Tyler asks the narrator to photocopy the rules of Fight Club on the copier in his office, rather than simply asking him to type them out and print them.
** One of Project Mayhem's pranks involves them pouring petrol into the tube of a CRT monitor so that it explodes when turned on - when's the last time you saw one of those?
** The narrator writes haikus and faxes them to everyone in his office. This was changed to e-mail in the film.
