* CreatorCameo: In the flashback to Valerie filming a movie, the actual crew members play her film crew.



* 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.

* TheOtherMarty: James Purefoy was originally cast as V before quitting due to the difficulty of acting an entire film behind a mask. Some of his six weeks worth of filming remains intact, dubbed over by Hugo Weaving.

* WhatCouldHaveBeen: James Purefoy was originally cast as V, but reportedly he wasn't coming across with the right performance and wasn't acting effectively through the mask, so Hugo Weaving replaced him. Some scenes of V in the film are actually Purefoy in the suit and not Weaving, but with Weaving's voice dubbed over Purefoy's.

* 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.
