* UnintentionallySympathetic: Rorschach comes across far more relatable than many of the other characters, which was not Alan Moore's intention for him. Not only is he pretty dang cool, he's also the one person trying to solve the mystery and figure out what is going on, even if his methods aren't very effective. His actions are what drive the plot forward, and many see him as TheProtagonist of the comic. [[spoiler: And he is the only one willing to not allow Adrien to get away with his plot, and for that, he has to die, but he goes out with dignity in the end.]] In short, a classic example of an AntiHero.

* TooCoolToLive: [[spoiler: Rorschach]], literally, when Alan Moore realized the character's unflinching determination meant there was no way he could survive the story. Also, [[spoiler: [[BadassGrandpa Hollis]] [[CoolOldGuy Mason.]]]]

* HilariousInHindsight: The businessman's line "'Free' is another word for 'Socialist'" in regards for energy. Right around the time the film was made, people were calling UsefulNotes/BarackObama's energy policies such as support for cap and trade just that.
** Wally Weaver's statements on Doctor Manhattan could also count as this.
-->'''Wally:'''What I said was 'God Exists, and he's American'. If that statement starts to chill you after a couple of moments' consideration, then don't be alarmed. A feeling of intense and crushing religious terror at the concept indicates only that you're still sane.
** Which later got vindicated [[spoiler: on how Ozymandias implements his forced peace.]]

Added DiffLines:

** The film's use of Music/SimonAndGarfunkel's "The Sound of Silence" can be this considering the song's use years later in a meme involving Creator/BenAffleck's sad, defeated expression around the time ''Film/BatmanVSupermanDawnOfJustice'', another Zack Snyder superhero comic book film, was released.

** The line mocking RobertRedford's candidacy. Let's just say he comes damned close in ''Film/CaptainAmericaTheWinterSoldier.''
