The novelizations [[spoiler: make mention that even though bullets don't do much harm to Vampires and Lycans under normal circumstances, a lot of bullets will harm and kill them. William would have more than likely died from continuous fire delivered from the machinegun mounted on the Cleaners' helicopter, even with his regenerative abilities and size. As tough as they are and even with their regenerative abilities, they're not impervious to sustained gunfire from either small arms or larger.]] With this information in mind, it's no wonder humanity was able to nearly drive them to extinction in ''Awakening''.

* VampiresAreRich: With the exception of the Death Dealers, who have werewolves to kill, Kraven's vampire clan seems to spend an awful lot of time [[IdleRich lounging around their gigantic mansion]] in gorgeous costumes.

* EvilBrit: Seemingly played straight with Lucian in the first film. But then subverted when it turns out [[spoiler:he isn't the villain, or at all evil]]. Viktor on the other hand... and then continued with Marcus in the second film, a Scot with an English accent.

* {{Expy}}: Thomas in ''Awakening'' is basically a more cowardly, not-as-evil version of Viktor. Creator/CharlesDance clearly took lessons in being BillNighy for the part -- just listen to his first line-''uh''.
* FauxActionGirl: Sonja in ''Rise of the Lycans''. Despite being the leader of the Death Dealers, Sonja needs almost constant rescuing.
* {{Fanservice}}: Selene's entire wardrobe composes of leather catsuits. The men are lucky--or villains--if they get more than pants. Michael almost always fights shirtless, while in the third film, Lucian shows off just about ''everything''.
* FantasticRacism: In ''Underworld'' and ''Underworld Preque Rise of the Lycans'', the two races of immortals, vampire and werewolf spend entire centuries killing each other over a grudge. The vampires are more typically racist, calling the Lycans (werewolves) animals and vermin and generally hunting them to the brink of extinction. In the feudal era, the vampires kept the Lycans as slaves and pets to guard them during daylight hours. The lead vampire killed his own daughter because she fell in love with a werewolf and carried his child.

* ForegoneConclusion: If you watched the movies in production order, there's no way you didn't know how ''Rise of the Lycans'' was going to end. Watching them in ''chronological'' order, however, takes away the first movie's twist that [[spoiler:Kraven didn't kill Lucian]] as Selene claimed in her OpeningMonologue, and that in point of fact [[spoiler:Lucian isn't actually the villain]]. Either way, you will be spoiled--though the chronological order can still work okay if you like {{internal reveal}}s.

*** Actually, it's only one character - Soren - who uses them [[spoiler:(in the prequel, he whips Lucian, who can't fight back, and then when Raze - who ''can'' fight back, and is significantly larger - confronts him in the second movie... [[CurbstompBattle Yeah]]).]] The confusion comes from his being played by Scott McElroy in the first movie, and [[TheOtherDarrin Jason Hood]] in the prequel.
