** It even extends to the unmade Alejandro Jodorowsky version, opinions on which range anywhere from it being a lost masterpiece, to being an interesting story that wasn't really a good representation of Frank Herbert's novels, to being just psychedelic crap.

* InformedWrongness: An early scene in the first book has the Reverend Mother making a flattering remark about eugenics in front of Paul, and Paul inwardly notes that the notion has offended his "instinct for rightness." The book never elaborates on this. [[HitlerAteSugar Maybe Frank Herbert didn't think he had to?]]

* HilariousInHindsight: Creator/PatrickStewart, who played Gurney Halleck in the David Lynch film, is already famous as [[Film/XMen Professor X]]. Then, Creator/JamesMcAvoy, who played Leto Atreides II in the 2000 miniseries, nows plays the younger version of [[Film/XMenFirstClass Professor]] [[Film/XMenDaysOfFuturePast X]].

** Even funnier, the shields used while he and Paul spar look ''exactly'' like the Borg shields from ''The Next Generation''.

* {{Narm}}: The "weirding modules" from the 1984 film. The Fremen fire lasers out of small boxes by making silly sounds with their mouths.

* FanonDiscontinuity: Many fans vehemently refuse to acknowledge any ''Franchise/{{Dune}}'' books not written by Frank Herbert. Herbert's son Brian and Kevin J. Anderson wrote two prequel series as well as a sequel series of two novels. Both [[ViewersAreMorons differences in writing style]], as well as serious inconsistencies with the original material, contribute to this reaction.

* Even more obviously, the most sucessful parts of said rebellion are very brutal themselves (and at least as patriarchal as the Fremen) and they aren't just interested in freeing their home country from foreign rule anymore, but their most recent leader has proclaimed himself the rightful religious ruler of a large part of the world and is quite serious about conquering it through jihad... (Thankfully the RockBeatsLaser aspect of the books doesn't translate to the real world, at least outside of local guerilla warfare.)

* HarsherInHindsight: Considering that as of 2015, a ruthless and Machiavellian ruler named Vladimir is militarily intervening in favour of a brutal authoritarian regime in a desert environment to help suppress a rebellion driven at least partially by religious fanaticism and doing so at least partially to ensure the continuous supply and control of a vital resource necessary for transportation...
