* BittersweetEnding: [[spoiler:Britain is free of the Dictatorship that had been ruling the country, but V lost his life in the process, and we don't know how well Britain will be able to take care of itself without a government in charge. The comic also ends with Evey possibly guiding the future society as the new V, and implies that she will train a successor of her own..]]

* HeroAntagonist: Finch spends the entire book tracking down the protagonist and investigates Larkhill's past to discover why V has such a murderous rage for its former staff. When he figures out the truth, he acknowledges the government is wrong and should be changed but also reaffirms his belief that V is still a dangerous murdering terrorist and he needs to be stopped, too.

** Adam Susan has some of this as well since he is reluctant to carry out his "duties" and seems to believe he is doing the right thing. On the other hand, he ''is'' a racist, homophobic dictator, and his internal monologue late in the story reveals that he's also a clinical sociopath to whom other people aren't real, which qualifies him much more as 'villain' than 'anti'.



* AuthorFilibuster: The reality is a bit more complicated. As [[WordOfGod Alan Moore]] himself says: "''The central question is, is this guy right or is he mad? What do you, the reader, think about this?''" Given that V's terrorist actions are hardly whitewashed or excused, one can easily make the argument that the true hero of the piece is Evey who looks to be forging a middle ground between Norsefire's order and V's chaos.

It's the late 1990s in an alternate history, and Britain is ruled by the Norsefire Party, a fascist government headed by "the Leader", Adam Susan, that came into power after WorldWarIII broke out in 1988, during which the United Kingdom the avoided getting hit by any nuclear weapons, apparently the only European nation to do so. Cameras are on every corner, surveillance vans roam the streets, and the government has long since rounded up any deviants or undesirable citizens that would otherwise taint the purity of Britain.

* MonochromeCasting: Every character in the graphic novel (except for some people in flashbacks or hallucinations) is Caucasian. This is due to [[ANaziByAnyOtherName Norsefire]] carrying out their idea of a FinalSolution, so every non-white person in England ([[FridgeHorror and it's implied in other parts of the world]]) is either dead, in hiding or left the country.
