At least she has the bloodstone to feed upon instead of mortals and Radu is confirmed to be dead]].



* EvilerThanThou: Radu is regarded as an insane monster even by other evil vampires. Whereas Ash and his vampires maintain a semblance of humanity more like the sophisticated Bela Lugosi type vampires Radu is a horror right out of the Dark Ages.



* IHateYouVampireDad: All of the vampires try to kill the ones who made them. Radu killed his father. Michelle tries to kill him. Ash wishes to kill Radu. Zachery killed his sire and wants to kill Ash for making her.
* IJustWantToBeLoved: Radu's apparent motivation for many of his vile actions is to gain Michelle's love.

At the same time he is vulnerable to all of the conventional vampire weaknesses.


Added DiffLines:

* PsychopathicManchild: Radu is prone to throwing tantrums when things do not go his way and often seeks the approval of his mother or Michelle like a little kid.


Added DiffLines:

* VampiresAreRich: Radu inherits a fortune in treasure upon killing his father and his other fledgling Ash has built another fortune in Budapest over the centuries.

* KilledOffForReal: It seems like every movie tries to kill off Radu in a horrible fashion. He got impaled on a tree, set on fire (due to the sun) and ''still'' lived, until the direct sequel.
