* DarkIsNotEvil: Not all vampires seen in the series are completely evil like the Carpathian and Japanese bloodlines: Gaelic vampires were able to coexist peacefully with humans, such as [[spoiler:Cash's adoptive father]] who lived as police officer. In fact, the Vassals eventually realized this and [[spoiler:under Felicia Book's leadership, started employing ''vampires'' as members]].

Added DiffLines:

* HowWeGotHere: The first few story arcs start out this manner. The first one opens with Pearl being dumped in the desert after being bitten and cutting back to 3 days before; the second arc opens with Cash carrying some mysterious package followed by what happened 6 months ago and the third arc opens with Henry pinned by enemy artillery writing a goodbye letter to Pearl and the story moving to a month before. The entire "Skinner Sweet" segment has the InUniverse narrator detailing the story that took place over 40 years ago.

* WhamEpisode: The final issue in ''Second Cycle''. [[spoiler: The heroes discover that the superweapon against the Beast is revealed to be an dormant angel incased in a warhead.

Added DiffLines:

** The American bloodline as whole has this trope as a hat. While other bloodlines such as the Carpathians and the Japanese vampires tend to commit TranshumanTreachery when turned, the American vampires stay more or less the same they were when they were human and the most we see are nice and friendly. The most obviously evil of that bloodline (Skinner Sweet and [[spoiler:Hattie]] were already evil before they became vampires.

* BigBad: Skinner Sweet was this for a time, but he's supplanted as the story goes on. Dracula himself is more the contender for this title, but after the timeskip, it's the Gray Trader.

* AssholeVictim: Hamilton Chase from the first arc. Not only did he [[UngratefulBastard backstab the vampire hunter who had saved his life]] and feed him to his quarry in return for fame, he fully assists with the European vampires' coven and feeds aspiring starlets to them. When he encounters the newly vampirized Pearl, he doesn't even ''remember'' he gave her to his partners the previous night. It's a bit hard to feel bad for Pearl making him her first kill. Little Feet Beales also deserves note given he spent years selling musicians to vampires to have their blood drained.
