* SympathyForTheDevil: V. Yes he is a murderer and terrorist, but his cause is a worthy cause. In fact, that particular ''RollingStones'' song appears in the graphic novel.

** Archbishop Anthony Lilliman was a pedophile who stood by while V was administered the serum, so V had Evey dress as a prostitute to get close to him, and killed him by forcing him to consume a cyanide-laced communion wafer. The whole point is that V forced Archbishop Lilliman to confess to ''him'' and to repent in a blasphemous mockery of the Catholic rite (though Liliman's lifestyle was practicing many things the Catholic Chuch's teachings oppose). The cyanide-laced communion wafer is horrifying to the clergyman because the Catholic faith dictates that no matter what the wafer is made of before it is consumed, it will become the "flesh of the savior" through the "miracle of transubstantiation" the moment it enters a pious man's mouth. However...

** Susan knows he is oppressing his people, but he is doing it to ensure their survival. When he realises his infautation with FATE is over and he cannot escape this way, he really wants human contact from the people he saved by oppressing them, and welcomes the high party woman he has seen a lot of times but whose name he could not remember [[spoiler: ...and she has a gun.]]

** Finch reflects exactly this at Larkhill camp: He pretended to work for the party so society can survive and to heal from his son and wife deaths... but at the end, finds that the sacrifice was not worthy and abandons Norsefire.
** Susan reflects: ''Freedom to my people? The freedom to die from hunger or freeze? I don't think so''

* HappinessInSlavery: [[DiscussedTrope discussed]], [[DeconstructedTrope deconstructed]], then outright [[DefiedTrope defied]] by V, saying the people's happiness comes from having never compared their lives to freedom.

** Rosemary's treatment at the hands of the government. Obviously the government treats everyone poorly but Rose's husband was a high ranking official. You'd think even they would be more sympathetic.

* TakeThat: Adam ''Susan'' is based on another 80's famous politician with the name of a girl, Ronald ''Reagan''. And in this universe, Susan did not survive the attempt on his life that Reagan did. Susan also has a distinct facial resemblance to Mao Zedong, which sits oddly at first for a ''fascist'', rather than a communist, dictator; then again, especially from an anarchist perspective, there's not all that much to choose between those two flavors of totalitarianism.
