* DuelingMovies: With ''Film/ChildrenOfMen''. ''V for Vendetta'' did much better at the box office.

* 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.

* {{Defictionalization}} ** Anonymous has adopted the Guy Fawkes motif for its protests, which apparently tickles Moore enough that he doesn't mind that this is inspired by the movie, rather than the book.

Not trivia
* ArtisticLicense: Moore has admitted he knew basically nothing about nuclear weapons when he started the comic, and so it's insanely optimistic about how many people would survive a nuclear war, which of course depends on how widespread the war is, as a limited war might lead to this situation. -->'''Alan Moore:''' I came up with a character called "Vendetta", who would be set in a realistic thirties world that drew upon my own knowledge of the Gangster era, bolstered by lots of good, solid research. I sent the idea off to Dave. His response was that he was sick to the back teeth of doing good solid research and if he was to draw one more "28 model Duesenberg" he'd eat his arm. This presented a serious problem.

Something that happened in fiction eventually happens in Real Life." Unless Anonymous is suddenly comprised of super soldiers who want to bomb London, not an example.
* LifeImitatesArt: Oh so very much. Many members of the Anonymous online community enjoy wearing Guy Fawkes masks in the style of this movie. Ironically, that mask design is copyrighted by WarnerBrothers, so the symbol of rebellion is actually owned by a large corporate entity similar to the ones that Anonymous occassionally target.

* ActorAllusion: ** Creator/StephenFry plays an erudite gay man in the entertainment industry, [[MetaCasting which he is]]. ** Creator/JohnHurt [[Literature/NineteenEightyFour in a movie about a totalitarian London?]] Notably, Hurt's presence is a sort of ''inversion''. In the 1984 version of... well, ''Literature/NineteenEightyFour'', John was portraying the protagonist, Winston Smith, and thus was a ''victim'' of the totalitarian government. In the film version of ''V for Vendetta'', meanwhile, he portrays High Chancellor Adam Sutler, and thus became the ''leader'' of such a government. ** In a similar manner, HugoWeaving is in [[Film/TheMatrix a movie about totalitarianism]]. However, like Hurt, Weaving is an inversion: In the first ''Matrix'', Weaving played the antagonist, Agent Smith, who had a role in the totalitarian government [[TheStarscream (initially)]]. In ''V'', however, he plays the protagonist who is fighting against the totalitarian government.
