* AwesomeMusic: His "unofficial" theme song, ''I Am The Law'' by Music/{{Anthrax}}. It's "unofficial" in the sense that it wasn't commissioned as such by then-owner of ''ComicBook/TwoThousandAD'' Fleetway Comics, but both fans and creators recognize the song as DREDD'S song, PERIOD.

** Judge Death repeatedly proved to be the comic's most popular villain, to the point where fans complained that he wasn't the BigBad in the film ''Dredd''.

* 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. 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.

** ''The Day the Law Died'' has a brief bit in which Cal declares [[ThePurge all crime legal for 24 hours]]. Even better in that story also has Cal's government [[ThePurgeAnarchy massacring citizens]] and [[ThePurgeElectionYear assassinating Cal's opposition]].

* SoBadItsGood: As... off-kilter as it is, it's fun to watch, taking into account Armand Assante's [[ChewingTheScenery bombastic acting]], the poor drama and the fact that no one can seem to say "law" properly.

* TookTheBadFilmSeriously: Creator/ArmandAssante looks like he's actually about to cry when he gets to the "That's your family! I'm your family! I'm the only family you ever HAD!" Careers are built on less sincere performances. (Especially notable since he actually manages to combine it with its supposed foil HamAndCheese- that line comes almost ''[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LxfrziN7jNo right after]]'' "LAAAAWWWW!")

** The League Of Fatties protest marches are a lot more hilarious since the [[https://pics.me.me/berkeley-protest-in-2017-judge-dredd-comic-in-1982-0b-27726714.png Fatties Against Fascism]] protested at Berkeley in 2017.

** Several parallels have been drawn between [[PresidentEvil Bad Bob Booth]] and Creator/DonaldTrump in light of his winning the US presidency in 2016, especially concerning Trump's 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". This has arguably lost some effect after Trump quickly proved uninterested and unable to fulfill most of his campaign promises, and mostly spends his time catering to international corporate interests and yelling on Twitter. Somewhat predictable, as the original Booth was supposed to be an expy of Reagan, and the "Origins" version was a response to George W Bush. In case Trump doesnt start the real life version of the Apocalypse Wars (still a real concern mind you, reader), he'll likely be source material for future versions of President Booth.
** 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. The practical effect of Cal's wall is the same, however, as the wall later has the primary function of keeping mutants out of the same.
