Added DiffLines:

* 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.

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]].

* 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 did in the manga.

* 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]].
