* TheVoice: The female police dispatcher. Those with a keen ear can hear that she is broadcasting insights into the movie's verse, such as the slang "Bronze" for MFP officers is discouraged by the MFP itself and it's stated that Max's use of the [[CoolCar Pursuit Special]] is unauthorized and that he may be a threat.

* AluminiumChristmasTrees: The "Anarchie Road" sign is a vandalised version of a real sign with the real name on it - the real name is "Anakie", it actually is that road (the film was largely made on the south-western outskirts of Melbourne) and Anakie is pronounced exactly the same way as Anarchy.

Added DiffLines:

* UrbanHellscape: The original film took place in a collapsing civilization, where motorized gangs terrorized the highways. After the loss of his family, Max Rockatansky becomes a ruthless VigilanteMan bent on revenge. The later films in the ''Franchise/MadMax'' franchise moved the setting to AfterTheEnd, and became the TropeMaker of TheApunkalypse. If nothing else, this film can be credited with melding the two genres.

Added DiffLines:

* TropeCodifier: Of the post-apocalyptic genre, particularly TheApunkalypse. Pretty much every post-apocalyptic work to come since ''The Road Warrior'' has had some influence from ''Mad Max''.

Added DiffLines:

* TheSilentBob: Max, to varying degrees. In ''The Road Warrior,'' he only has sixteen lines. In ''Fury Road,'' it's more plot-relevant, as he's been isolated for so long that he's almost literally forgotten how to speak.

* LifeOrLimbDecision: The probable TropeCodifier: Max handcuffs Johnny to the car whose gas tank he set up to explode before giving him the saw and telling him that it will be quicker to saw his foot off than to saw through the handcuffs. It's particularly cruel because if you watch the movie closely you'll notice that it doesn't matter which choice the cuffed bad guy makes, there isn't time for him to do either: From speech to explosion is about 3 minutes tops. That said, it could be just movie timeónot like it even matters, he'd bleed to death before he could possibly find anyone to treat the wound.
