** ''Blood-C'' can be considered a prolonged shoutout to Creator/HarukiMurakami's novel ''Literature/KafkaOnTheShore'', specifically of its Nakata arc and the shocking scene of Johnnie Walken's death. A rather dense protagonist with supernatural abilities? Check. An antagonist that puts him in an experiment to test if he will change or stay the same? Check. Said experiment being formulated exactly in terms of "a reward for the winner and a punishment for the loser"? Check. A character that speaks through a dog as an avatar? Check. Blood and gore as a motif? Hell check.

* TooDumbToLive: The villagers, seriously. [[spoiler:It's understandable that they are not aware of the existence of the Elder Bairns. But when Saya tells them to run away while she deals with the monsters, they just stay on one spot near the battle field and then, they got killed.]]

* TheGhost: [[spoiler:Judging for Saya's flashbacks wearing her original uniform and the manga ''Demonic Moonlight'' featuring a young David, it's apparent that he and the Red Shield organization exist for real in this ''Blood'' continuity, but they aren't brought up to the main plot.]]

* AllThereInTheManual: So, you want to know more of Saya's, Tadayoshi's and Fumito's past and all of this business about the Elder Bairns? Go read the manga ''Blood-C: Demonic Moonlight'' [[spoiler:which tells about Tadayoshi's past life]] and watch the stage play ''Blood-C: The Last Mind'' [[spoiler:which explains how Fumito got interested in Saya]].

* BroadStrokes: The series is a sequel of sorts to ''Anime/BloodTheLastVampire'' judging for the flashback in episode 11, where [[spoiler:Saya is shown in her ''The Last Vampire'' uniform fighting against Fumito's personal army in what appears to be an airfield, all while a voiceover talks about her connection to the United States Army]]; similarly, the OpeningNarration of episode 1 shows something resembling a Chiropteran being slashed by Saya. If we are meant to take it as a direct ContinuityNod, then it implies that [[spoiler:Saya Kisaragi is really the original Saya who was snatched from the Red Shield by Fumito, and thus possibly that the chiropterans are simply a kind of Elder Bairns.]]

* Foreshadowing: There is more than meets the eye to Saya's town. There are little moments when civilians Saya is saving mention things like "This wasn't supposed to happen" or "I was told differently". Of course, there is the most obvious one where the Elder Bairns mention the 'Pact' has been broken once Saya fights ones that can talk.
