** 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.

* GroundhogDayLoop: When Johnny is contracted to bring his abusive Nazi-esque father Nelson Kreelman to justice, he decides not to collect on the bounty and instead traps him in a temporal loop where he's forever reliving his final moments, pathetically begging Johnny to spare his life.
