* RevisedEnding: In the ending as it was originally planned, Frost turned into La Magra and became a large swirling mass of blood instead of keeping his form. This was scrapped because they couldn't get the special effects to look right. It can be seen as a special feature on the DVD.

* FollowTheLeader: In a sense, the movie led to the boom of Marvel movies. Though later overshadowed by 2000's more successful ''Film/XMen'', ''Blade'' was the first Marvel movie to be a bonafide financial and critical success (''Film/MenInBlack'' came out first but technically, it was more a property ''bought'' by Marvel than ''made'' by Marvel. And granted, some productions such as ''Film/SpiderMan1'' [[DevelopmentHell had long been gestating]], but the movie's success proved that Marvel characters could headline their own movies.) Additionally, Blade himself was not as well-known prior to the movie's release, but still made for a successful property. In addition to their A-list stars, Marvel and DC have subsequently looked at other lesser-known characters for possible movies.
** And despite ''Film/BatmanAndRobin'' being basically a GenreKiller the year before, ''Blade'' proved comic book movies still had it.
*** Of course, the general public probably wasn't really aware that Blade ''was'' a comic book character, and thought it was just a cool "Vampire Killer" idea (especially since ''Buffy'' had premiered a year before.
