* WriteWhatYouKnow: Nolan said that he based the roles of the dream building team off significant roles used in making a film. Cobb is like the director, Arthur the producer, Ariadne the production designer, Eames the actor, Saito the studio, Yusuf the SFX Engineer, and Fischer is the AudienceSurrogate.

** An inadvertent one. Nolan cast Creator/MarionCotillard, who played famous French singer Music/EdithPiaf in the biopic ''Film/LaVieEnRose'', in a film that heavily features Piaf's song ''Je ne regrette rien''. Creator/ChristopherNolan considered taking the song out of the movie when he cast Cotillard, but ultimately decided against after Creator/HansZimmer insisted -- he had already built quite a bit of score around it.

** [[Film/TheBeach This isn't the first time Leo's been washed ashore]].



* EditedForSyndication: In an effort to combat confusion, television broadcasts in Japan include text in the upper-left corner of the screen to remind viewers which level of the dream a specific scene takes place in.



* HilariousInHindsight:
** The two female leads were up against each other for the UsefulNotes/AcademyAward for "Outstanding Lead Actress in a Motion Picture" in the same year: Ellen Page for ''Film/{{Juno}}'' and Marion Cotillard for ''Film/LaVieEnRose''. Cotillard won, [[spoiler: but Page got her revenge. In ''Inception'', her character shoots Marion's.]]
** Arthur is played by Creator/JosephGordonLevitt, who played Tommy on ''Series/ThirdRockFromTheSun''. The most memorable episodes of that show are the 3D episodes, which center on dreams. Tommy's own dream included him chasing a book down a hallway, that was not following the laws of physics. Also, he was a young man again, as he was actually the ''oldest'' of the aliens on his home planet.
* {{Jossed}}: If Sir Michael Caine is to be believed, [[spoiler:any fan theory which assumes that the "real world" is just another level of dream. Caine states that any scene which he's in is the real world. Virtually confirmed by WordOfGod, Creator/ChristopherNolan.]]

* MidDevelopmentGenreShift: Creator/ChristopherNolan originally envisioned this as a horror film.



* NoStuntDouble: Creator/JosephGordonLevitt performed all but one of his own stunts during the fight scene in the spinning hallway.



** James Franco was originally cast as Arthur, he had to back out because of scheduling conflicts. Nolan's first choices for Ariadne and Browning were Evan Rachel Wood and Don Johnson, respectively, but both declined.
** Kate Winslet was the first choice for Mal but she turned it down, unable to see herself as the character. This would have made the ActorAllusion above even more hilarious.

* 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.


Added DiffLines:

* 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.
