Added DiffLines:

* CreatorsPet: PJ Maybe. A psychopathic, child genius serial killer who never matured. His signature tool was SLD-88, a mind control drug that was incurable, undetectable, and used almost exclusively by him. He constantly outsmarted everyone around him in increasingly implausible ways, even becoming the mayor of Mega-City One and working closely with the Judges, undetected, while still carrying out his habitual murders. When he was finally gunned down by Dredd decades after his first appearance, parts of fandom rejoiced while other parts were trying to figure out how he'd fooled the Judges THIS time.

* CanonDefilement: This film has Dredd removing his helmet and showing his face not once, but multiple times. In fact he spends more time with it off than on. This is considered just a step short of heresy by many fans.

This is considered just a step short of heresy by many fans. It arguably doesn't help that the removal of the helmet isn't handled dramatically in any way - if it had been kept on until the moment he was exiled and stripped of his rank, it might have gone over better.

* TheWoobie: Many citizens fall into this category. Bennett Beeny stands out though. He spends his life [[AllLoveIsUnrequited pining for America Jara]]. When he finds her again, she's become a terrorist and later ends up being shot by a judge and winds up brain dead. He later transfers his consciousness to her body and has a daughter. There's a good reason ''America'' is considered one of the best stories.

stories. His suffering doesn't end there either, as America's body starts to reject his brain and he agrees to voluntary euthanasia. At least his hope that their daughter could reform the Justice Department from within by enrolling her at the Academy of Law after his death still lives on.

* AlternateCharacterInterpretation: Due to how the comic is written, the characterization of Dredd tends to vary wildly. In more serious stories he's an extremely strict but ultimately fair and dedicated law enforcer who wants to protect Mega-City 1 and its inhabitants. In the stories focused more on black comedy, as well as some of the longer fiction such as the ''Democracy'' storyline, he comes off as a deliberate JerkAss who goes out of his way to make the citizens life a living hell. In the early stories, Pat Mills considered him a straight up hero, whereas John Wagner went with AntiHero at best and VillainProtagonist at worst.

** Several parallels have been drawn between [[PresidentEvil Bad Bob Booth]] and Creator/DonaldTrump in light of his candidacy for the US presidency in 2016, especially concerning Trump's perceived xenophobia. [[https://pbs.twimg.com/media/CM2sxD3WEAAJl0y.jpg This image]] shows a good comparison between the two. Futhermore, Trump said "'''I am the law''' and order candidate" in a speech on police and veterans in Virginia, and again in his nomination acceptance speech. The parallels get downright scary after reports that Trump has openly considered using nuclear weapons against other countries. There's also Trump's dislike of Mexicans, which is given a whole new perspective when you realise that Booth invades Mexico in "Origins".

* InkStainAdaptation: Pretty much torched the franchise in North America. DC Comics tried and failed to get a run of the comics going, and [[Film/{{Dredd}} the 2012 film adaptation]] was a BoxOfficeBomb despite [[AcclaimedFlop good reviews from critics and garnering a strong cult audience]].

Added DiffLines:

* ValuesDissonance: Early issues showed Dredd punishing victims of crimes for 'incitement' because they displayed wealth that tempted the criminals. That works as 1970s satire on heavy-handed law enforcement, but can rankle with today's awareness of victim-blaming.

** On the issue of Trump, there's also [[TheCaligula Cal's]] building of a wall around Mega City One during his reign as Chief Judge, though this is to keep citizens in, as opposed to migrants out.

* WhatAnIdiot: Fergie casually walking into a broken-into apartment in the middle of a block riot, mere hours after getting paroled. It's like he wanted to get arrested again. To be fair, it is supposed to be ''his'' apartment. He just figured he could ride out the block war inside.

** Fergie ''repeatedly'' blurts out Dredd's name in circumstances where it would be smart not to call attention to him.
