->'''Cassie:''' A slasher. It's a type of undead, I guess... sort've like a vampire or a zombie. They're so full of anger that they don't wanna die. They hate love, youth, sex... things they miss, from life. All I know for sure is that they're mean and hard to kill.\\

* DeathBySex: Slashers are generally attracted to teenagers engaging in "deviant behavior" -- there's easily a dozen ready examples of teens getting offed as they're about to have sex. Naturally, this is because of the trope's ubiquity in 80's slasher movies. [[spoiler:This turns out to be a plot point, as Akrakios originally created the Slashers, or "Paladins" as he called them, to destroy what he called the "Children of Dionysus", those dedicated to sin and debauchery, in the belief that they would cause an apocalypse]].

* VirginShaming: Played with in the "Shot at the Devil" story arc. Hulking and deformed slasher-slayer Vlad has unsurprisingly never "made the sex" with a women before. [[spoiler: Unfortunately for him the villain of the story arc has kidnapped his partner/best friend Cassie, and has a special mind control spell that only works on virgins. So a good deal of the arc is Vlad trying to find a women who will sleep with him so he can go and rescue his friend.]]

*** The Beanes seem to have been right. By the time [[spoiler: Vlad]] meets them, he's deathly ill due to the lack of a "proper diet", and it is only the intervention of [[http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/ComicBook/WitchDoctor Dr. Vincent Morrow]] that allows him to [[TakingAThirdOption Take a Third Option]].

* ActivistFundamentalistAntics: [[TheFundamentalist Laura Lochs]], especially in the ''Vs. Chucky'' story where she claims to want to "save" Cassie by murdering her friends in ways that reflect sins according to Laura's belief system, even though they don't actually apply to the people she intends to kill.

* GenderFlip / RaceLift: Minor villain April Fool is a black female {{Expy}} of SelfDemonstrating/TheJoker from another dimension. Without the [[JokerImmunity Immunity]] though: she gets killed off very fast because Cassie, unlike [[Franchise/{{Batman}} certain people]], doesn't have any moral qualms about killing human villains.

Not to be confused with HackAndSlash, although the plots can get that way, or with [[{{Reboot}} Hack and Slash]].
