  Gimmick - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In professional wrestling, the term gimmick is typically used to describe a wrestler's in-ring persona.
A pricing gimmick is often employed to increase sales of certain items, or to reduce inventory on items that aren't moving well or are overstocked.
A gimmick is not seen by the audience, as opposed to a "fake", which the audience does see but does not realise that it is a "fake", mistaking it to be a normal object.

 Gimmick (professional wrestling) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In recent years, the emphasis has been on more 'realistic' gimmicks where the wrestler is portrayed as being an actual person, albeit with exaggerated personality traits, as opposed to previous years where gimmicks could be best described as 'cartoonish' (most of the World Wrestling Federation product in the 1980s and early 1990s fits this category).
A "heel gimmick" is one that is designed to be hated by crowds, usually to make the face look more popular in any storyline they may be both involved in (for example, pretending to betray a trusting face).
This is an example of a recycled gimmick, as Lex Luger used it in the early 90s when he was in the WWF, and a similar gimmick is currently being used by Rob Conway.

 What's a Rallye?
Gimmick rallyes often have checkpoints along the course, where you stop your car and interact with rallye personnel, who might throw some more gimmicks your way.
Gimmick rallye types differ mainly in the scoring mechanisms used to determine who figured out which gimmicks.
These traps are similar to the tricks found in gimmick rallyes, and might cause you to take a longer or shorter route, or to drive at a different speed.

A gimmick is an element of the set of all observable behaviors such that it has the property of being catchy, but becomes less catchy with each subsequent observation.
An example of a gimmick with low lasting effect would be Cory Evans' bold statement, "There are no heroes in chess." While this could possibly have a higher lasting effect on a specific population, such as chess players, this does not apply to the general population.
While we would like to say that gimmicks in general enjoy a normal life, with a healthy amount of exposure to the unbelievers (those without the power to create gimmicks), this is not really the case.

 The Wrestling Menu - Best & Worst Gimmick Poll Results + No Mercy Predictions
I know I'm really flogging a dead horse today with the gimmicks subject, but I want to comment on a fair bit of wrestlers that were either lucky or unlucky enough to be voted the best or worst gimmick of all time.
Couple this with the fact that the gimmick was never really adjusted, and I'd almost have to say that this is the best gimmick ever to grace professional wrestling.
I'm going to do this a little differently to the best gimmick award earlier, in that I'm going to be a little choosy as to what I include and what I don't.

 'DS is a gimmick' - Nintendo DS News - Australia's PAL Gaming Network   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-02)
The touch screen feature on Nintendo's DS is a 'gimmick', whilst the handheld is nothing more than 'an irrelevance' when it comes to predicting the success of the PSP.
But I fear that it won’t have a lasting impact beyond that of a gimmick - so the long-lasting appeal of the platform is at peril as a direct result of that.'
Of course, much of this is clearly rhetoric timed to coincide with the PAL launches of Sony's PSP handheld on September 1st, though whether or not the arrival of Sony's portable console can help the company overtake the worldwide sales figures set by the DS remains to be seen.
