So what happened with this show? It was initially planned as an {{OVA}}, but ended up becoming a TV series by means of tacking on lower-budget episodes to fill it out. Effectively, Nightwalker has two different animation staffs, but attempts to pass itself off as a unified production [[note]]Both halves were done by {{AIC}} despite this[[/note]]. To go even further, the game it's based on is an {{HGame}} - in fact, Nightwalker is the first anime tv series based on an adult game[[note]]earlier adaptations of this sort are all {{OVA}}s[[/note]]. (The game is [[NoExportForYou Japan only]] (of course) and obscure even by those standards.) In comparison to the game, the anime series is a pleasantly ''Series/ForeverKnight''-ed up AlternateContinuity of its source material.

* XMeetsY: ''InterviewWithTheVampire'' meets ''Series/ForeverKnight''.
** The DVD features a quote that describes it as such, throwing Series/{{Angel}} in for good measure.

* CreepyChild: This anime's full of them.The anime employs this trope often.
** In the episode where Shido is trapped in a well with a Nightbreed and a child, Shido spends the episode trying to protect the "innocent little girl" but it turns out [[spoiler:the girl is a vampire herself, and is centuries older than him.]]
** The little boy who comes back from the dead as a Nightbreed and mutilates neighborhood pets to feed. The child's mother refuses to let Shido kill the Breed, convinced it the creature is still her son... which leads to an even creepier resolution: since he can't convince the mother, Shido ''just leaves them alone''.

**The fun part is that Shido is so wrapped up in his own problems that he doesn't notice that the little girl [[spoiler:is no worse for wear after 3 days without water or food until she reveals herself as a vampire.]]



* PlotInducedStupidity: Episode 6, Shido is stuck in the bottom of a well with a Nightbreed and a little girl. He tries "climbing" out, despite having shown some [[{{Roofhopping}} incredible leaping prowess]] in the previous four episodes. After three days of trying, he then decides to shatter the walls of the well, thus flooding it, and float to the top with the girl.
** Actually, it's explained that Shido was weak (and . . . thirsty) at the time due to the fight that got the three of them stuck down there in the first place.
