* ContinuityNod: Both the dogs and Drake himself sport [[Film/BladeII Reaper]]-like jaws and tongue.



* EpicFlail: In the opening scene Blade carries a knife that with the push of a button, can launch its blade a short distance (like a ballistic knife). However, the blade is attached to a wire or chain of some sort, allowing it to function as a bladed flail after being launched. After the battle, Blade tells Whistler "This worked real good" (and then never uses it again for some reason).

* FourLinesAllWaiting: Is it about vigilante Blade versus [[LesCollaborateurs human law enforcement]], the upcoming vampire apocalypse, Blade's attempt to create his ''own'' apocalypse via TheVirus, or Blade vs. {{Dracula}}? Concentrating on any [[TwoLinesNoWaiting two of these plotlines]] would have worked, but not four. Wesley Snipes was reportedly very upset that the core character was lost in the plot shuffle.

* CriticalResearchFailure: At one point Blade asks Dracule how he can walk on the sun. He then asks if he read "that fairy tale from Stoker". As a matter of fact, Dracula is not significantly hurt by the sunlight in the novel.
* DeadpanSnarker: Hannibal King is a master of this. It doesn't hurt that he is played by Ryan Reynolds.

* UncleTomfoolery: Inversion. The BadAss hero is a black guy and the jokey sidekick is white.

* BuryYourDisabled: One of the Nightstalkers, Sommerfield, is blind. She doesn't make it to the end of the film.


Added DiffLines:

* RevisedEnding: There are three alternate endings:
** Theatrical ending: As Blade fought honorably, Drake gives him a "parting gift" by transforming his dying body into a replica of Blade's. The FBI retrieves the body of who they think is Blade, and thus call off their manhunt. Just as they begin the autopsy, Blade's body reverts into that of Drake's. Hannibal's voiceover tells the viewer that Blade is still alive somewhere, finishing the last struggles of the war; having rejected Drake's hopes of prolonging the vampire race, Blade's war will never end.
** Unrated ending: The body retrieved by the FBI is Blade's, but he's not really dead. Drake's body is nowhere to be seen, hinting at his survival. At the morgue, Blade sits up abruptly, attacks the FBI agents, and appears ready to bite a nurse on the neck. The ending is ambiguous as to whether Blade has retained his humanity or given in to his vampire thirst as Drake predicted. This is the ending seen on the director's cut of the film, and commentary on the DVD indicates it was the ending director Goyer intended.
** Werewolf ending: The Daystar virus circles the globe and wipes out all vampires. Blade walks off into the sunset, his long battle finally over. The final shot is of the Nightstalkers battling a new enemy: werewolves. This version of the ending was used in the novelization of the film and is included on the DVD as an extra.

* PsychoPoodle: One of the "vampire dogs" is a poodle and is quite vicious, though not as much as the vampire rottweiler.

* CasualHighDrop: When being broken out of the FBI building by Abigail and Hannibal King, Blade briefly breaks of from the group and jumps up a ventilation shaft. Immediately after Hannibal and Abigail escape on the ground floor, Blade jumps out of a higher window and lands unharmed, saying he only took the detour because he "forgot his sword".

* RepeatedCueTardyResponse: Hannibal King is captured by the villains and reveals that he had a tracking device, allowing his teammates to know his exact location. He then gives a verbal cue, expecting a Big Damn Heroes moment. It doesn't come and he nervously asks for a cellphone.
