Added DiffLines:

* ComicBooksAreReal: In the first film, Hellboy is only known to the outside world as an urban myth and the star of a series of comic books. When John Myers meets the real HB, he complains that the comics never get his eyes right.

Added DiffLines:

*CatchPhrase: Hellboy's tendency to exclaim "Oh Crap".


Added DiffLines:

*OhCrap: A literal example. Hellboy loves to say those two exact words when things don't go his way.

Added DiffLines:

* ArtisticLicenseHistory: Look closely at the soldiers in Professor Bruttenholm's taskforce as they take the picture at the start of the film; one is black, at a time when the forces were still segregated (although it ''was'' a very special taskforce...).

Added DiffLines:

* TheUnintelligible: Ivan, the desiccated half-corpse Hellboy resurrects during the final act, talks with a fittingly dry, raspy voice ''and'' in (presumably) some form of Russian, which makes everything he says largely impossible to understand for the average western viewer. Hellboy and his team seem to understand him quite fine, though, if Liz' snickering when Ivan insults Hellboy is any indication.

* ForeignCussWord: Kraus, after reprimanding him about radio silence during a covert operation, said in an undertone "schmutziger Affe", which is German for "dirty ape" (Stylistically more correct would be "dreckiger Affe", but compared to the butchering of German in other films, its more or less OK). And at the end of the film, when [[spoiler: Hellboy, Liz, Abe and Krauss decided to leave the B.P.R.D., ]] Krauss told Manning to "suck my ectoplasmic schwanzstucker". The word "Schwanzstucker" doesn't exist in German, but it contains the German word "Schwanz", which is "tail" and a mildly obscene word for the penis. Could also double as GettingCrapPastTheRadar. In the German dub the word "Schwanzstück" is used, which sounds REALLY awkward, but stylistically correct. This was probably a del Toro ShoutOut to YoungFrankenstein.

Creator/DavidHarbour is set to star in the titular role while [[Film/TheDescent Neil]] [[Series/GameOfThrones Marshall]] is attached to direct. Mignola will also be taking a more hands-on role this time around by writing the script.
