* MemeticMutation: Like you wouldn't believe. From a single Epic Fail Guy comic to the face of worldwide protests. Today, V is the face of Anonymous. Along with the now-famous "V" speech. Evidently, Moore is actually quite proud of this fact, but is a little annoyed that it was sparked not so much by his comic as by "the rubbish movie".

-> V: There is no flesh and blood behind this cloak to kill. There is only an idea. ''Ideas are bulletproof.'' Farewell.

* CrazyAwesome: V is a KnifeNut who speaks philosophically, manages to make the populace of England revolt, hides out in an underground base full of lost cultural items, and wears a Guy Fawkes mask with intentions of making it the face of a revolution.


Added DiffLines:

* V, as in the comic, is CrazyAwesome. Doubly so, in fact, in the film, thanks to his [[AddedAlliterativeAppeal introduction.]]

* {{Anvilicious}}: A criticism of the movie is that it is heavy handed with BlackAndWhiteMorality. Changing the name of the BigBad to sound like Hitler is more than a little obvious, for instance.
** The "Sutler" name probably seems more anvilicious to those who know it was changed from "Susan". To someone coming from it cold, the first half makes it not-very-"Hitler"-like.

Added DiffLines:

* BrokenBase:
** Changing the villain's name from 'Susan' to 'Sutler'. Fans of the original comic feel it's {{Anvilicious}}, as the new name sounds too much like 'Hitler'. The other side argues that the new name is less heavy-handed if one doesn't know it was changed from 'Susan'. And a villain named Susan could have caused {{Narm}} when said out loud.
** Natalie Portman's English accent. Some found it atrocious and unbelievable. Others felt it was a decent effort.

** Meta-example, as it did this to Guy Fawkes. It's true that Fawkes entered Parliament with honest intentions, but few actually know what those intentions were. He wasn't trying to take down an authoritarian government, but instill a different one (indeed, since the Catholic church strongly believed in the divine right of kings, Guy Fawkes's co-conspirators would most likely have abolished the power parliament had claimed from the crown). He wanted England to move from the Church of England, which was oppressing to the Catholic Church, back to the Catholic Church (which would then have oppressed the Church of England).

The history of Catholic oppression in England is still a contentious issue to this day, however, with a lot of HistoricalVillainUpgrade and HistoricalHeroUpgrade which should be treated with RuleOfCautiousEditingJudgement.
