** Really, the battle just showcases a prominent and improtant theme of the show: The past vs the present. [[spoiler: Despite the high-end tech of the Nazis with artificial vampires, powerful airships and the [[HumanoidAbomination quantum theory embodiment Schrodinger]], they heavily represent the past. They're the remnants of a defeated army and glorify the past, something the Real Life Nazis did with Teutonic imagery, some wanting to ressurect the pagan religion and various other elements. This contrasts with the progressive and modern Hellsing; being led by a woman and their new secret weapon being one as well, along with the superiority of modern tactics & weaponry the Flying Geese had on the Nazi vampires. In the end, most of the "old warriors" are dead and even Integra references the fate of the Hellsing Organization becoming a state-based program and the end of family organizations.. Even Alucard, who endured the centuries without changing, traded in the colossal army of souls he had from past centuries in exchange for the, bluntly speaking, soft science fiction-inspired, quantum mechanics-based immortality thanks to having the soul of Warrant Officer Schrodinger. Yes, he is no longer a OneManArmy, but he is even more immortal and furthermore,''timeless,'' not to mention his preference for firearms, despite being a capable swordsman. Ultimately, the show presents a positive tone on modernizing, progress and moving forward rather than sticking to the past while Millennium's grand ambitions have failed for good. In fact, despite the Major's attempt at it being an endless war, the entire debacle was presented as a modern terroist attack, the Zepplin Incident and delgating them to the dustbin of history. ]]

Added DiffLines:

* One of Hellsing's themes - and Alucard's beliefs - is that there's a difference between those who threw away their humanity and part of themselves in order to turn into monsters and gain power and immortality (Alucard); and those who instead "earned" their immortality and managed to keep their own self and personality, despite technically turning into supernatural creatures (Seras). Why is this listed as Fridge '''Horror'''? [[spoiler:The Major is a cyborg, but claims that he still possesses his own will. If that's true, then not only it means that he was ''exactly'' this evil back when he was human; not only it means that [[HumansAreTheRealMonsters humans really are capable of this much evil]]; it means that the Major really did "earn" his own immortality]].

* Jan [[DieLaughing Dies Laughing]] instead of [[VillainousBreakdown flipping out]] like [[InelegantBlubbering most other deaths]] in the series. Why is this? Because he didn't have to meet [[CreepyAwesome Auclard.]]

** Alternatively, Alucard wants someone to prove him wrong for turning into a vampire. Up until he faced Professor Hellsing, he was completely undefeated as a vampire. In his mind, humans are the only ones strong enough to truly defeat him.

* The Flying Geese's [[spoiler: battle with the Nazi vampires invading the manor takes on more meaning when one remembers a part of the Major's speech. On the part of him referring to how his "old warriors" were equal to a thousand modern soldiers, yet they were annihilated by modern tactics by these mercernaries. It just adds another layer on how ''wrong'' the Major was in his so-called war.]]

** And there's also the part when Zorin Blitz maims Seras. She cuts out her eyes, stabs through her, and cuts off her arm which goes flying and later Zorin's army of vampire Nazi's show up who are huge cannibals. So the fate of Seras's arm is probably that it either rotted to the bone or one of the vampire Nazi's ate it. Not a pretty picture.

** Furthermore, he does see himself as like an attack dog and is seen by most as a secret "weapon", only to be wielded by those strong enough who could, a worthy human being.
