* FantasticRacism: Subverted with Hellboy, interestingly enough. Even though he's literally a big red devil with horns and a tail, people's general reaction to him ranges from curiosity to indifference rather than fear and hatred. Ironically, more racist behavior is shown toward Hellboy's non-white colleagues in the BPRD, as shown in the stories taking place in the 1950s.
