Added DiffLines:

* ComicBookTime: Averted in the Warren comics, where Vampirella would occasionally mention how many years she's been on Earth (such as 5 and then 8 and so forth - coinciding roughly with how many years her comic had been running). At the time of her visit to Drakulon, she mentioned that she's been on Earth 8 years and was born 26 years ago.

Added DiffLines:

* EyeScream: The Blood Red Queen had her eyes gouged out by a demon thanks to Vampi and Pendragon, so in "An Eye for an Eye" the Queen returns the favour to Vampirella once she had her captured. This is one of the two things that happens to [[BrokenBird completely break Vampirella.]]

Added DiffLines:

* {{Reincarnation}}: In one not-so-popular arc for Vampirella, it's revealed that Vampirella is the reincarnation of Queen Cleopatra. She had rejected her husband-brother Ptolemy, so when Ptolemy uses black magic to turn himself into a vampire he does the same to Cleopatra. Cleopatra eventually kills him and the god Ra appears. He can't reverse the vampirism so he makes it so that she will reincarnate in the future onto a paradise world full of blood. Vampirella's pal Pendragon was also reincarnated, he used to be Cleopatra's loyal servant.

There was also a Creator/RogerCorman-produced LiveActionAdaptation [[Film/{{Vampirella}} in 1996]], starring former Bond Girl Talisa Soto in the lead role. An earlier attempt at a movie series by Film/HammerHorror in the 1970s remained stuck in DevelopmentHell until the company folded.

Added DiffLines:

* EarlyInstallmentWeirdness: Vampirella didn't start off as a monster-hunting superhero, she was just a refugee from Drakulon and the snarky hostess/mascot of horror stories. Vampirella took a turn to good when the god Chaos and his demons discovered her and had plans to impregnate an alien woman.

* OrderVersusChaos: There's a cosmic war between these two forces in the setting. Vampirella fights as a (reluctant) agent of Order.



* OurWerebeastsAreDifferent: One of Vampirella's allies is Pantha/Sekhmet, an ancient Egyptian woman who can transform into a panther. There's some degree of MorphicResonance as well, with her {{stripperiffic}} outfit ([[TechnicallyNakedShapeshifter it's not clear if they're actually clothes or formed directly from her skin]]) containing cat patterns.
