* ShapeshifterGuiltTrip: The vampire who was once [[spoiler:Blade's mother]] tries the "You couldn't kill [[spoiler:your own mother]]" guilt trip when he gets free near the end. (Which might have worked better if they hadn't already had the ThatManIsDead conversation last time they talked.) Blade's response is that if there's any of [[spoiler:his mother]] left in the vampire, killing the vampie and setting her free would be doing her a favor.

* 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/SpiderMan'' [[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.
