* [[CrazyCatLady Crazy Cat Demon-man]]: Hellboy has ''dozens'' of cats, it's one of the things he and Liz fight about in the second movie.

* KindheartedCatLover: At least in the movies. This can be a more supernatural version of a character keeping a dog, since cats are more mysterious and occult. Hellboy also goes well out of his way to save some kittens during his fight Sammael.
** The lady who ''owned'' the kittens in need of rescue, also. She's only on screen for a second or two, but it's apparently taking six or seven other bystanders to restrain her from rushing into danger to retrieve them.

* AuthorAppeal: The first film has a strong influence from Mike Mignola, with Nazis, eldritch abominations and a very dark, Gothic tone. The second film is more fantastical, owing to director Creator/GuillermoDelToro's input, especially in terms of the Troll Market's inhabitants.

Sharp-eyed viewers will also be able to spot del Toro's beloved "creepy things in jars" in a few backgrounds.

* CouldHaveAvoidedThisPlot: Critics have pointed out that most of the second half of the film could have been solved easily if Nuala had just ''asked'' the B.P.R.D. to help her destroy the last crown piece - without that, Nuada wouldn't be able to wake the army in any case. [[spoiler: It's particularly frustrating when Liz is easily able to melt the full crown at the end, begging the question of why they didn't simply try that earlier.]]
** To be generous, it could be argued that since the Golden Army is indestructible, Nuala thought that the crown was indestructible as well since it appears to be made out of the same metal as the golden army, and didn't bring up the option of destroying it. It's also possible she wasn't thinking clearly due to the frightening and unusual situation she was in.

Added DiffLines:

* StoppedReadingTooSoon: A variation; Abe Sapien reads off the description for the {{Hellhound}} from a book to Hellboy. Hellboy supposedly kills the hellhound before Abe finishes, after which he mentions the last few sentences about resurrection.
