** 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.

* 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. 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. But they paid for SylvesterStallone and by God they were going to use his whole face, not just that iconic jaw of his.

* VisualEffectsOfAwesome: Whatever else about this film, the sets are impressive and capture to look of Mega City One very well.

* JerkassWoobie: Chief Judge Thomas Silver ruthlessly crushed the Democracy movement, and made an appalling number of bad decisions that ended in Necropolis, a nightmare that cost the lives of 60 million people. ''Return of the King'' makes him rather pitiable when we see the sheer magnitude of the suffering he went through at the hands of Judge Death and his cohorts, who turned him into a zombie pet so they could torment and humiliate him indefinitely, constantly reminding him about what they were doing to his city.

** ''Judge friggin' Fire'' actually managed to achieve this for a split second, who for the record is as much of a genocidal walking corpse as his brothers, who has actually burned alive hundreds of children in one day on the excuse of "noise pollution". In ''Dreams of Deadworld'' it's shown that he was in love/obsessed with a female Dark Judge who killed herself rather than submit to him. He just keeps staring at her skull for decades to relive the memory, [[MadnessMantra constantly reiterating]] that as a Dark Judge he shouldn't have feelings anymore.

* MemeticBadass: Judge Dredd. When the Face of Fear kills anyone who gazes into it, Dredd is the only one it can't kill. Fear is not so resistant to the Fist of Dredd. Also, he once got an entire army to back down by simply ''appearing on a comm screen''.
