* RefugeInAudacity: Again, Nick, by virtue of fervently arguing positions that his opponents presume he'd completely back down from.

* HilariousInHindsight: In the previous film Katie Holmes appeared in before this, ''Film/BatmanBegins'', she portrayed Rachel Dawes, the LoveInterest of the title character. In this film, her character, Heather, has a sexual relationship with Nick, portrayed by Aaron Eckhart. Eckhart would later go on to portray Harvey Dent in ''Film/TheDarkKnight'', involved in a relationship with Rachel Dawes (though this time round portrayed by Maggie Gyllenhaal).

* PunchClockVillain: If you consider Nick to be a VillainProtagonist, he will be likely one of these.
* VillainProtagonist: Depending on your perspective on smoking. Nick Naylor is played straight as a classic protagonist in a Hero's Journey, despite being what many would consider a villain in the cigarette wars.

* DesignatedHero: Nick. A lot of his speeches revolve around the fact that smoking is a choice, yet it's been stated within the film itself that cigarettes are addictive, making his statement come across as trivialising. There's also his scapegoating of consumer products such as chocolate and cheese which are also unhealthy, yet smoking can still be considered worse as it causes cancer and produces second-hand smoke that's harmful to asthmatics who don't get a say in the matter.

Added DiffLines:

* DoNotDoThisCoolThing: Practically Nick's M.O. He tries to give the appearance of not wanting people to smoke but his job depends on it, and his idea to put smoking in movies hinges off it.
** Though interestingly, no one in the film itself actually smokes, which may be an attempt by the makers to avert this.

* AffablyEvil: Nick earns his living by defending and promoting cigarette companies, but he's a devoted father and rather charming and likable man.
** Even more is Bobby Jay Bliss, the gun control lobbyist. It's rare to see a [[strike:N.R.A]] [[FunWithAcronyms S.A.F.E.T.Y]] member so sympathetic in a movie. He almost borders on EvilIsFunny with the M.O.D. stickers. It's mentioned in the book that he's a Born-again Christian.

** One of Bobby's introductory lines, about suing Boeing for a plane caused by pilot error or General Motors for vehicular homicide caused by a drunk driver as a comparison, sounds like he gave testimony for the [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Protection_of_Lawful_Commerce_in_Arms_Act Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act]].
