* CompleteMonster: Dr Floyd Ferris. Somewhat modeled on the Nazi doctors who experimented on concentration camp victims, he is a former biologist who only really good at political maneuvering, and whose only invention is a torture device. At one point he advocates killing all people over sixty, and one third of all children - as a threat to the hero.

* FauxSymbolism: The story of John Galt has some similarities to the story of Jesus Christ in Literature/TheBible; what makes this Faux Symbolism is that Rand was noted for her hostility to religion, so the similarities make no sense, except as an attempt to make the story seem significant by association.

* DesignatedHero: Ragnar plunders relief ships taking food to starving people, including children... because they are loaded with supplies bought with stolen money, and what will happen when there is no one left to steal from?
** No, he plunders relief ship that go to prop up fascist police states under the guise of helping people, then sells those goods to the people themselves bypassing the looters.
*** So he's making a profit by becoming a looter himself?

* FauxSymbolism: The character of John Galt has some amazing similarities to the story of Jesus Christ in Literature/TheBible.
** Jesus goes around recruiting disciples; Galt is making the creative people of the world go into hiding.

* MisaimedFandom: The book is hugely and openly critical of torture and targeted killings, religion, and trusting feelings over evidence. And yet AIG CEO Bob Benmosche claims to be a fan, even though the ''villains'' of the book are [=CEOs=] who take government bailouts after causing an economic collapse through sheer ineptitude.

Of course, Ayn Rand herself was known for flip-flopping in her own beliefs, especially later in life.

** Another certain percentage of the politically and historically aware find it the opposite, pointing out the destructive influences the book has had on politics in their own beliefs.
