* ManBitesMan: Vampire Bites Vampire! Hope you didn't need that [[spoiler: arm, Zorin!]]



* NeverHurtAnInnocent: Seras doesn't want to kill normal humans, especially humans who don't know what they're up against. In the series, her targets are restricted to ghouls and the supernatural troops of Millennium, in direct contrast with Alucard killing everything in his way... and anything adjacent to his way...

* WhatTheHellHero: She points out to Alucard in OVA II that the SWAT team he massacred were just ordinary humans doing their jobs. It's perhaps the one time Alucard ''ever'' feels compelled to defend his actions - saying that ''they'' tried to kill her and him first, so killing them right back is the only course - but she remains unconvinced.

* AFormYouAreComfortableWith: Due to the thousands of souls inside him causing a lack of a definite gender, he can change his appearance at will. To quote the man himself, "Trappings of mortal form mean nothing to me."

** And the biggest example of them all: throwing away your humanity. After his defeat at the hands of Dr. Hellsing, Alucard earnestly believes a person's humanity and ingenuity to be the best things about them. When [[spoiler:Anderson]] uses [[DeadlyUpgrade Helena's Nail]] in their final battle, Alucard is not only ''furious'', he's '''brought to tears''' at the end.
* BetterToDieThanBeKilled: Averted. Alucard is very much ''not'' of this opinion. No matter how much he respects his opponent, if he's going to die, he's going to die fighting with everything he's got. When an anonymous mook shot himself rather than fight, having seen every other mook in the room torn to pieces in front of his eyes trying, Alucard's visibly infuriated.

* BrokenAce: The most powerful vampire ever to walk the earth, suicidal to face in combat, immortal, strong, fast, clever, cultured and, when he feels like it, good-looking. There's almost nothing out there that's equal to him. Because of his great age and degree of power, even the weaknesses of other vampires barely apply to him. At Hellsing, he's surrounded by people he admires and respects and doing a job he finds deeply enjoyable. [[spoiler:But he's well aware that he's a monster, and his deepest wish is to die at the hands of a worthy human.]]

* DiscardAndDraw: Thanks to Schrödinger nearly erasing him from existence and leaving him incorporeal for ''three decades'', Alucard had to dispose of the millions of potential familiars he had until only Schrödinger was left. He likely can't contain and release entire armies of undead anymore, but on the other hand, he now has Schrödinger's power of 'being everywhere and nowhere.' He lacks his hundreds of thousands of souls, but has become the self-observing paradox that exists where and as he decides he does; 'I think, therefore I am.' While he is no longer ''literally'' a OneManArmy, he has become much more immortal and unlike his previous powers which made it difficult but not ''impossible'' to kill him, virtually nothing can hurt or kill him now.
* DreamSequence: Has a pretty trippy one following the events aboard the carrier ''Eagle/Adler''. On top of demonstrating that Alucard appears to have a fondness for BruceWillis movies and films based on FrederickForsyth novels (such as ''Literature/TheDogsOfWar'' and ''TheFourthProtocol''), it also serves as an important first point of foreshadowing regarding [[spoiler:Walter's treachery]].

* DroppedABridgeOnHim: In the form of Schrödinger. Okay, so maybe it was more 'dropped mathematics and technobabble on him'.
** The Major lampshades this, pointing out that fighting him head on is pointless; he'll simply cheat death by consuming more blood. He states that traditionally 'tyrants have always been killed by poison.' Considering the whole plan to make Alucard vulnerable and how two mighty warriors, one even turning into a monster, failed to off him, it's hard to disagree.
* EarnYourHappyEnding: After essentially being sent to purgatory by Schrödinger, Alucard seeks out and kills his millions of lives [[spoiler: (except Schrödinger's)]], finally putting them out of their misery and earning his life back.

It turns out he's actually something far, far more horrifying, being at the very least a Mind Hive of millions of undead souls, all slaved to a single once-human mind.

How it works in the anime is anyone's guess.

* DiscardAndDraw: Thanks to Schrödinger nearly erasing him from existence and leaving him incorporeal for ''three decades'', Alucard had to dispose of the millions of potential familiars he had until only Schrödinger was left. He likely can't contain and release entire armies of undead anymore, but on the other hand, he now has Schrödinger's power of 'being everywhere and nowhere.' He lacks his hundreds of thousands of souls, but has become the self-observing paradox that exists where and as he decides he does; 'I think, therefore I am.' While he is no longer ''literally'' a OneManArmy, he's still virtually impossible to kill and remains incredibly powerful, if not quite as overwhelming as he was.
