* PuttingOnTheReich[=/=]ANaziByAnyOtherName: Norsefire are Neo-Nazis, so it's not too odd. The dictator even gets a monologue saying why fascism is a good thing. The song sung by the cabaret singer in Chapters 5-6 ("I like the ''boots''" etc.) [[LampshadeHanging lampshades]] this, citing everything from ''Film/TriumphOfTheWill'' to "blond and blue eyes" to the "Heil Hitler" salute...

* 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.
