** The original comic was not the only work published by DC in the 1980's with the letter "V" leading the title. It sold better and was more influential than the official "V" comic as well.

* SigilSpam: Norsefire [[PuttingOnTheReich Puts On The Reich]] well enough, but the filmmakers outdid them at every turn. ''There are V shapes everywhere'' if you know where to look. Almost everything in the background is tilted at a 30-degree angle with something identical or is propped up to form a V shape, and character names have as many E's as possible (E being the fifth letter in the alphabet, V being the fifth letter from the end of the alphabet). And if you were to dub the movie in Latin, V would say "Vi veri veniversum vivus vici" more than once.

* FakeBrit: Both Portman (Israeli-American) and Weaving (Australian). However, given V's cloudy backstory and the xenophobia of the government, V may not have been a native Brit himself. Considering Weaving actually spent a good portion of his childhood and teens living in the UK, his FakeBrit status is debatable.
