* VampiresSleepInCoffins:
** Alucard the vampire sleeps in his special coffin when he needs to rest; doing so also recharges his energy as most of his powers are sealed within the coffin.
** The new vampire Seras Victoria is issued a coffin, and is locked in it during the flight to Argentina in one episode as she's too young to resist sunlight or cross running water like Alucard can.

In the jolly old land of Great Britain sits the Hellsing Organization. Led by [[TheWomanWearingTheQueenlyMask Integra Hellsing]], the clandestine group's mission is to protect Queen, country, and the Anglican Church from supernatural threats--mainly vampires. As the series begins, one such vampire has been ravaging the English village of Cheddar and turning its inhabitants into "ghouls". In response, Integra sends Hellsing’s most powerful operative--a powerful vampire named Alucard--to deal with things.

** Millennium itself is a strangely subverted example, as while the organization doesn't appear on screen, it is heavily implied to exist in the anime's universe and to be in fact the mentioned group behind the actions of Incognito, his British master and the FREAK chips. The series's trailer actually shows the silouette of the Major clapping his hands at the action (that is, his only scene in the manga at the time the anime was made), hinting he might have been considered to appear in the series at some point as a SequelHook.
* AdaptationExpansion: The series added in more CharacterDevelopment in the first six episodes, especially for Seras.
* AlasPoorYorick: Seras carrying Alucard’s head, twice.

an UnknownCharacter and/or SequelHook, but if he was, these plans were abandoned in the final product.
* AdaptationExpansion: The series added in more CharacterDevelopment in the first six episodes, especially for Seras. \n It also adds a flashback for Anderson in a possible past encounter with Alucard or another great vampire before gaining his powers.
* AdaptationPersonalityChange: Anderson is considerably less hammy and more restrained here, even seeming more smug at times due to his seiyu's higher pitched voice compared to ''Ultimate'''s Creator/NorioWakamoto.
* AlasPoorYorick: Seras carrying Alucard’s Alucard's head, twice.



* DarkerAndEdgier: In a way. Although this series doesn't contain as many battles and deaths as the manga and the ''Ultimate'' [=OVA=]s, its atmosphere is generally darker, quieter and more psychological, and its conclusion is much more pessimistic.

* EvilLaugh: Seriously, this anime is full of characters (good and bad) who love to laugh like they're evil maniacs.

* NoSwastikas: Avoids the issue entirely by excluding the later Millennium arc, but this is due to production timing rather than censorship. However, the shape of the circuitry in the FREAK chips in the series is still an obscured svastika.

* NonActionBigBad: Incognito's master is [[TheGhost never seen]], let alone ever fighting the heroes. S-/He let's [[DragonInChief Incognito]] do all the heavy lifting and are left [[spoiler:defenceless to be taken out as soon as Incognito is killed]].

* AdaptedOut: Pip Bernadotte and the Wild Geese from the original manga. A mercenary group very similar to the Wild Geese shows up in the later episodes, but they don't get nearly the screentime or importance the Wild Geese had in the manga.

* 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.

* BaitAndSwitch: In the first episode, an older man and a woman with black hair are in a room together. The man's predetory actions with her (and centipedes falling in the room) make it seem as if he were a vampire about to feed on the woman. When Alucard arrives to elimate the target, it's the woman who's the vampire.

* ShoutOut: Possibly to the ''Wilmarth Foundation'' in the CthulhuMythos, which may have influenced the portrayal of the ''Hellsing Organization''. [[Creator/ChiakiKonaka The show's writer]] is known for being a fan of the Mythos, and often adds Lovecraftian themes or references to his works.

The '''''Hellsing''''' TV series (also called '''''Hellsing: Impure Souls''''' in media) explores [[AudienceSurrogate Seras’s perspective]] as she adjusts to life as a vampire in the employ of Hellsing and helps unravel the mystery of the artificial vampires and the FREAK chips. The first half of the series stays generally faithful to the original ''Hellsing'' manga, although specific themes (e.g., what it means to be “human”) and character development are given more depth, while the latter half of the show diverges wildly from its source material as a result of [[OvertookTheManga overtaking the manga]].
