* VindicatedByHistory: Was not especially well-received upon its initial release, garnering generally unfavorable reviews and failing to make a dent at the box office. Years later, especially in the wake of the recent surge in popularity of [[{{Dystopia}} Dystopian]] fiction thanks to stories like ''Literature/TheHungerGames'', the film is much more popular, with its GunKata in particular being imitated by countless shows and video games. It started getting more recognition from a PeripheryDemographic of anime fans around ten years after its release after Creator/GenUrobuchi became a big name in the industry, and he happens to be a ''huge'' fan of this movie to the point that its influence can be seen in several of his most famous works such as ''Anime/PsychoPass'' and ''Anime/PuellaMagiMadokaMagica.''

* CompleteMonster: Vice Council [=DuPont=] is the second-in-command of the Librian state under its founder [[ShadowDictator Father]]. He presides over a totalitarian system in which all human emotions are forbidden and suppressed with a drug called Prozium. Any "[[{{Thoughtcrime}} sense offenders]]" who are caught by the elite [[SecretPolice Tetragrammaton Order]] are punished with immediate processing and incineration. [=DuPont=] executes a plan to destroy the anti-Librian Resistance once and for all by manipulating one of the Clerics to become a sense offender and deliver the Resistance and himself to [=DuPont=] on a silver platter for mass execution. This would normally make [=DuPont=] another totalitarian agent, but it's eventually discovered that Father has long since died and [=DuPont=] is in fact [[TheManBehindTheMan the real undisputed dictator of Libria]]. Moreover, he's a sense offender who [[ScrewTheRulesIMakeThem considers himself to be above his own rules]], freely indulging in art and literature behind the scenes. Unlike Father, who [[UtopiaJustifiesTheMeans genuinely believed that he was creating a utopian society]], [=DuPont=] has the moral conscience to understand the immorality of his actions, yet he knowingly and purposefully abuses the system [[DespotismJustifiesTheMeans simply to secure his own power]] by oppressing millions and slaughtering thousands for a crime he (and his [[TheDragon Dragon]], Brandt) [[StrawHypocrite commit all the time]].

* SmallReferencePools: They're burning a painting? Make it the ([[FridgeLogic original]]) Mona Lisa! Man stumbles for the first time on music? The Ninth Symphony! Just imagine how the movie would've progressed if he'd found a Philip Glass record instead.
** Yeah, he'd have gone back on Prozium and wiped out the Resistance singlehandedly.
