* 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.

** 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.

** 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.

* 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''.

Even amongst those with barely a casual knowledge of the comic knows of him as the living embodiment of the law.

* DorkAge: For the most part, Creator/GarthEnnis' run on the strip wasn't all that well received. Ennis himself feels that his own reverence for the character meant he didn't take the piss like in a lot of his other work.

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.
