* VillainHasAPoint: Nuada is correct that the humans [[UngratefulBastard squandered Balor's mercy and broke the treaty that saved them]], and that humans in their current state are killing the fey creatures. It might not quite justify [[KillAllHumans genocide]], though.

Instead, [[http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/heat-vision/hellboy-reboot-works-stranger-things-star-david-harbour-1001462 a reboot of the series]], with the working title ''Rise of The Blood Queen'', is currently in the planning stages; the reboot is said to be R-Rated, indicating it may take a DarkerAndEdgier approach to the material than the more fantastical style of Del Toro's duology.

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.

Creator/GuillermoDelToro's films based on [[ComicBook/{{Hellboy}} Mike Mignola's comicbook series]], starring Creator/RonPerlman as the big red guy, Creator/DougJones and [[Series/{{Frasier}} David Hyde Pierce]] as Abe Sapien[[note]] Jones physically plays Abe in both films, while Pierce provided his voice for the first one; he refused to be credited out of respect for Jones' performance, and decided not to return for the second film, so Jones does Abe's voice in that one[[/note]], and Selma Blair as Liz Sherman. They take a lot of liberties with the source material (which Mignola himself was perfectly fine with), to the point where it's better to think of them as an AlternateContinuity rather than an adaptation.

* DullSurprise: Selma Blair's portrayal of Liz Sherman. Justified, as she's supposed to be depressed and heavily medicated due to her tragic past, and she gets ''much'' better in the second film, after she finally comes to terms with her emotions and powers.

In the final days of UsefulNotes/WorldWarII, the Nazis and [[RasputinTheMadMonk Grigori Rasputin]] open a portal to the Void, attempting to summon the [[EldritchAbomination Ogdru Jahad]] to destroy the world. Allied soldiers, with the help of occult expert Trevor Bruttenholm, destroy the portal, but not before something comes through: A baby demon. Bruttenholm adopts him and the soldiers of the unit name him "Hellboy."

* JerkAssHasAPoint: Manning, regarding Hellboy's irresponsibility as a commanding officer. Such a good point, in fact, that the movie has him immediately follow it up with a bigoted rant so we don't stop thinking of him as a jerkass.

* BeethovenWasAnAlienSpy: Grigori Rasputin as master mystic. Granted, even many of his contemporaries thought there was something weird about him. Also, Adolf Hitler as an accomplished mystic. Early in the movie, Bruttenholm briefs Myers on the Occult Wars which happened with the Nazis acquired mystical artifacts (such as [[TheLanceOfLonginus the Spear of Longinus]]) and ended when Hitler finally died in 1958. Myers corrects him, saying Hitler died in 1945; Bruttenholm simply gives an amused "Did he now?"

Afterward, they have a friendly moment, which because it's Manning takes the form of him being a curmudgeon about the way Hellboy lights his victory cigar and teaching him how to do it ''properly''.



* IJustWantToBeNormal: Liz. Hellboy too, to an extent. He sands his horns to fit in and generally likes to pal around with the other B.P.R.D. agents when he's not working.

''[[UsefulNotes/NorthernIreland County Antrim.]]'']]''; given the leaning more toward mythology and fables as with the later Mignola stories - particularly Celtic - this does make a lot of sense as the UK is dense with lore.

* IrishNames: Nuala is actually a real name, but it's not pronounced like it is in the film. The correct pronounciation sounds more like "Noo-la". The unusual pronunciation is justified by the fact it sounds more like Nuada.
