* OurGhoulsAreCreepier: "Ghoul", in this setting, refers to a shambling, ravenous, flesh-eating zombie that a vampire can create from the corpse of someone they completely drained of blood. Ghouls are bestial creatures, but can clumsily use tools, including guns, as shown when the Valentine Brothers attack the Hellsing Estate.
* OurVampiresAreDifferent: In fact, with the existence of Truebloods and FREAKS, they're even different from each other!
** Trueblood Vampires more closely resemble the Gothic Vampire archetype; they have powers like regenerating, turning into [[{{Animorphism}} animals]] or [[SuperSmoke banks of mist]], SuperStrength, SuperSenses, and the like. It's hard to judge just how powerful they are, especially seeing as how Alucard has been experimented upon to make him more than an ordinary vampire, but it's implied that age plays a part in their potency. Truebloods reproduce in the standard method of drinking blood from a human and willing them to change.
** FREAK Vampires are artificial vampires, created through the implantation of special body-altering microchips. They are vastly inferior to Truebloods, lacking their more supernatural powers and failing to attain similar levels of physical potency. There is a shown discrepency between the power levels of FREAKS, which may have something to do with how many chips are implanted. They do have the ability to raise their dead victims as Ghouls, which is implied to be a trait present in Truebloods as well, but don't have the ability to create other vampires.



* SlidingScaleOfVampireFriendliness: Hard to categorize. Traditional vampirism is not massively contagious (only virgins can become vampires), nor does it cause morality shifts, and the HorrorHunger is so subdued that Seras could go a good long while without feeding and never lost control due to hunger. However, Alucard and a few other traditional vampires can be ''massively'' dangerous with age, capable of godlike power levels and forming ghoul armies from the fed upon. FREAK vampires seem to be either more vulnerable to moral decay or just awful people to begin with, since they all [[TranshumanTreachery become monsters]].

* DeconstructedCharacterArchetype: Alucard is this for the InvincibleHero archetype. He's an immortal SociopathicHero able to survive near-total bodily destruction and few if any situations ever credibly threaten him. At first, it appears that the Major's plan simply involves starting a war with London. However, it's eventually revealed that there's A LOT more to it than that. The point of his plan is to [[spoiler: get Alucard down to a form where he's vulnerable enough to finally die. Starting a war and taking London down are pretty much just bonuses.]]

* WordSaladLyrics: 'The World Without Logos', the catchy opening theme, is (almost[[note]]there's a single Japanese word in the second verse[[/note]]) entirely in English, NONE of which makes any sense.

* CultSoundtrack: Yasushi Ishii's original score, the quality of which is the one thing the BrokenBase can agree upon. ''Logos Naki World'' in particular is universally accepted as the theme for ''both'' anime adaptations.

* NeverTrustATrailer: [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8Hbhtq9ugPg This]] is the original Japanese trailer for the TV series, featuring stellar animation (save for a couple of shots) and plenty of violence. In addition to half of the animation from the trailer being ''cut'' from the final product, most of the remaining bits were only used in the show's opening. The rest of the animation that ''did'' make it into the show was edited beyond recognition.
