Follow TV Tropes
Just a note about the work description- there's a mention that the film "added superpowers for V". I've not read the book in a while, but wasn't book V also implied to have some superpowers (albeit, they where much more low-key, and displayed less often than in the slo-mo fight scene heavy film)? I'm sure in the book that he kills one victim by apparently forcing his fingers through their chest and into their heart, a feat that the detectives investigating V note to be explicitly superhuman.
Whenever V comes up under a spoiler, it is pretty obvious that its him because of his One-Letter Name. Does anyone know if there is something else we could call him for the spoilers?
The One Known As V? Codename V?
Pulled the following because of Conversation In The Main Page:
This example doesn't seem to match the trope as described:
Wild Mass Guessing belongs on that page, not the main page, as far as I know. Putting it here for the time being (in case it's okay to keep it):
It's also possible that she had been married off to some Noresfire loyalist who went unmentioned, and was the preferred candidate because she was as-then the first unmarried female heir in line to the throne.
Removed the Evil Sounds Deep and Heroic Sociopath examples too. If V is portrayed more sympathetically in the movie, it doesn't make sense if his actor was cast to make him seem more evil. And Heroic Sociopath is a form of Comic Relief, which V most certainly isn't.
The 'egg in a basket' thing is getting nattery. Situation: I know it. I eat it for breakfast. I ate it when I was a child. I'm British. I call it toad in a hole, I've also heard it called 'hole in one' or 'egg in a hole'.
Another British troper (plus Stephen Fry and Alan Moore) seems to have never heard of it. And they think it's American.
So, how do we write the entry? Is it Did Not Do The Research or not?
The guy says in the movie that's what his mother used to call it. Maybe his mother was just odd like that.
Pulling it from the page for now, just to avoid more natter:
But since at least some Brits seem to have heard of and eaten the dish in question, the passage does seem to be a case of Did Not Do The Research. The next question is what it's (most often, perhaps) called in the UK ...
'Executive Meddling: It apparently spawned the title itself.'
This is not clearly explained. Explanation?
Probably Your Mileage May Vary, but I thought that Evey didn't get Promoted to Love Interest - I thought both Comic Evey and Movie Evey were in love with V. In fact, Comic Evey's interactions with V seemed a lot more genuine and a lot more loving than Movie Evey's. She argued with him, sure, but she also kissed him, danced with him and begged him to not be dead. Either way, V also professed his love to her, so there was definitely love between the two of them.
Comic Evey openly questioned if V was her father more than once and spent half the time terrified of him. There was also one brief moment in which she questioned if he was even male or not. I never got the impression that Evey was in love with him.
The dancing, kising, and the part in which V professed his love for her were only in the movie.
