The Wally Squad
The Wally Squad are part of the Justice Department's Undercover Operations Division. They are a group of Judges who masquerade as citizens in order to investigate hidden crimes or to act as agents provocateurs in the worst parts of The Big Meg. Notable members of The Wally Squad include Dirty Frank[circular reference](A former special operations operative who operates within the Mega-City region known as the Lowlife), Jack Point[circular reference] who poses as a Simp (a subculture where the members dress in ridiculous outfits and act like idiots) and dresses like a circus clown.
Led by Mr Bones and consisting entirely of humans and mutants, they attempted to release the Xenomorph on Mega City One.
The Diktatorat were the ruling council of East Meg One, a Sov-Blok city in the Judge Dredd universe. Ruling over the city, they were a triumvirate with the Supreme Judge and two other judges. At the time of the Apocalypse War, the Supreme Judge was Josef Bulgarin, his deputies consisted of Judge Vlad and Judge Snekov. The Diktatorat initially conducted the Apocalypse War from a deep nuclear proof bunker underneath the city. Eventually they were assassinated in a coup enacted by War Marshal Kazan, the commander of the East Meg front line troops.
Hardened killers travelling with Father Earth, they murdered anyone who did not share their leaders views on nature. Eventually arriving with their leader at Mega-City One, a small group of them tricked their way into the Main Control Building claiming to be religious figures wanting a tour of the building. Once inside, they planted bombs at key points (including the main power generator). When Dredd arrived at the building having realised what Father earth's plan was, they choose to die fighting rather than surrender.
Despite killing them and disabling most of their bombs, their main bomb still exploded, destroying the building and its robotic inhabitants and causing a volcanic eruption.
The remnants of the group where either killed by Judge Dredd, the lava or eaten by carnivorous alien plants.
The House of Pain
The House of Pain was a fictional prison organization that tortured criminals who escaped the Judges and, once broken, used them to capture other criminals. The Judges raided the facility and have since turned it into a new Iso-Block.
New Mutant Army
An organised and armed guerilla army operating in the Cursed Earth. They enjoy widespread support from the mutant populace, and are committed to destroying the Judges and reclaiming Mega-City One. In 2127, they slaughtered a brigade of Cursed Earth Auxiliaries; the Judges retaliated with overwhelming force, wiping out much of the Army while also turning more mutants against Justice Department.
Until 2129 they were under the command of President Robert L. Booth.
A terrorist group whose aim is to abolish the Judge System. In 2126 they detonated nuclear bombs in Mega-City One, killing millions, in a failed attempt to force the Judges to relinquish their power.
