* CriticalResearchFailure: In reality, Alpha radiation is made up of particles which are not particularly harmful since they can be blocked by something as simple as an ordinary piece of paper. The story thus makes heavy use of WillingSuspensionOfDisbelief.

Added DiffLines:

* CanonDiscontinuity: ''Strontium Dogs'', the sequel strips sans-Johnny are no longer considered to have occurred, especially the later strips by Peter Hogan. The ''Durham Red'' far future stories can be considered this too, especially seeing as new stories are being set in the regular timeline of the main strip.

* FunetikAksent: Wulf always talks this way to show his heavy Norse accent.

** Note, the stories take place not only after ''Dredd'' but also after a nuclear war sometime around 2150 which has yet to happen in Judge Dredd's timeline where it is currently 2132. Mega-Cities in Britain and Ireland could, possibly, have been compromised in such an incident. Only time will tell. One ''Dredd'' story dealt with a document known as "File Alpha" and Mega City One's efforts to keep the information about the 2150 nuclear war from Brit Cit.

* CrapsackWorld: While the world of ''Strontium Dog'' isn't nearly as grimdark as the likes of ''ComicBook/JudgeDredd'' or ''Shakara'', it's still deeply unpleasant. Unlike ''ComicBook/JudgeDredd'', which was often [[BlackComedy darkly humourous]], ''Strontium Dog'' never [[PlayedForLaughs plays anything for laughs]].

* {{Homage}}: ''The Headly Foot Job'' is basically a take on the gallows scam from ''TheGoodTheBadAndTheUgly''. Johnny and Wulf rescue Bootsy from the gallows [[spoiler: only to take him across the border and claim the bounty on him in the next jurisdiction.]]

* AloneWithPrisonerPloy: Johnny's "norm" sister Ruth uses her status as Minister Kreelman's daughter to get alone in a cell with Johnny under pretense of berating a mutant who tried to oppose her father, as Alpha's true identity is a secret. She gives her brother the gun he needs to escape.
