* AmbiguouslyBrown: One could easily assume he is Indian due to his skin tone and his Buddhist theme attire and abilities. However, its vaguely implied that he is European due to his name having Irish origin.

** One [[http://shmuplations.com/darkstalkers/ interview]] even has one developer making a joking comment about him being Indian only for another developer to quickly follow up with the statement that he is in fact from PartsUnknown.

* DeveloperForesight: The fur stripes on her character design only covers her front, meaning that her butt is always exposed. The artists and animators made sure that she unintentionally censors herself to the players if she has any attacks that would expose her butt to them. Best example is her Dancing Flash attack, where she unleashes a flurry of scratches and kicks on her enemy. As she kicks her enemy with her fore-leg, she censors her butt as she's rearing up her right claw for another scratch.

The various [[PublicDomainCharacter public domain monsters]] of the ''VideoGame/{{Darkstalkers}}''/''Vampire'' series are compiled here for your convinence. While they're far fewer than the men, the ladies get ''far'' more publicity and prominence than their male counterpats. Names are listed as English/Japanese.

* BadassPrincess: If only by a technicality. As Belial's handpicked heir, Morrigan is poised to [[AwesomeMomentOfCrowning take the throne]] and become Makai's [[TheHighQueen ruler]] (what the [[BackFromTheDead revival]] of Jedah, the only remaining High Noble of Makai, entails is unknown). She might look dainty and frail, but Morrigan can and ''will'' kick your ass. [[GreatWayToGo Totally]] {{worth it}}, [[GreatWayToGo though.]]

* EvilIsVisceral: Jedah fights by mutilating himself and using his tissues and blood as weapons(for example, he'll make claws by cutting the joints of his fingers and stretching them in lines of blood, as well as attack with a spray of blood by DECAPITATING HIMSELF). His stage is the inside of a [[WombLevel giant womb]], complete with [[FetusTerrible giant demonic fetus]] in the background.

** Lord Raptor: In 1889, "The Country of the Comers-Back" (aka "Le Pays De Revenants") was an essay depicting zombies published in ''Harper's Magazine''. The character was originally conceived as a dead WWI-era soldier, which made for plot oddities when his story was revised to make him a punk rocker and thus had him start his human career a few decades too early.

* RockMeAsmodeus: It is unknown exactly what was backing his little cult but now he has backing from Ozam and Le Malta, demons from the world of Makai. Still plays the guitar, too.

* RockMeAsmodeus: It is unknown exactly what Judging from his backstory alone, Raptor was a one man cult leader who used the curses and spells from the Chapter of Tolgaido, an ancient Hebrew book detailing the customs of Makai, to gain his backing with mind control and hypnotizing his little cult but followers to his whim. After his grand finale to gain ultimate power, he now he has receives backing from Ozam Ozom and Le Malta, demons from one of the world three empires of Makai. Still There is much TruthInTelevsion in this interpretation of metal and rock music; back around the 1970's and 1980's, metal garnered a great deal of opposition by Christian morality groups for breaking from the norm and going into detail about darker subjects, including the negativity of life and satanism, which they came to claim that such bands were cultists who used music to spread their word. One famous urban rumor in that playing metal and rock records backwards reveals subliminal messages to worship the devil even plays into Raptor's backstory as well. Either way, Lord Raptor's got the guitar, too.last laugh in this regard, and still shreds a mean guitar into the distance.

* AntiVillain [[VillainProtagonist Protagonist]] ([[SlidingScaleOfAntiVillains Type I]]): He's the main character of the series [[WordOfGod according to Capcom]], but shows the traits of both anti-heroes and anti-villains. A villainous example would be his ending in the first two games.
** DecoyProtagonist: That said, he has very little character development, doesn't really get to do anything that substantial in the grand scheme of things, and largely serves as an anchor for the ''real'' main character of the series - [[WolverinePublicity Morrigan]]. If the drama tracks are to be considered canon, his status as this has been cemented.

* BalefulPolymorph: His Royal Judgement and Pharaoh's Curse Super Combos temporarily transforms the opponent into a small, defenseless form. What exactly they are turned into depends on who the opponent is. Due to ''Marvel vs. Capcom 2's'' large roster, all members of the cast are instead turned into the same generic troll creature upon being hit.
