The Department of Redundancy Department is a department that deals with redundancy in fanfic, which is its departmental jurisdiction. Its head is the Flower and sentient plant Coriander, who is a Flower; it might or might not be the same Flower as the Repetitive Department of Repetition's Cilantro.

Agents often complain about needing to call the DRD in on badfics with lots of redundancy, but they don't often do it. This may be because talking to DRD personnel on the phone is an exercise in frustration due to all the redundancy.[1] It may also be that at one time they had a reputation for being "quick and mean," and for not taking kindly to being called in for small potatoes.[2]

DRD agents may need to pass an exam to join,[2] and may not be licensed to kill,[3] but it's not quite clear.
