* 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.]]
** Really, the battle just showcases a motif of the show of the past vs the present. [[spoiler: Despite the high-end tech of the Nazis with artificial vampires and the like, they have a visage of the old, being the remnants of Nazi Germany and romantizing the past. 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 tactics and modern 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 program and the end of family organizations like this. Even Alucard, who endured the centuries, traded in colossal army of souls he had from past centuries in exchange for the, bluntly speaking, science fiction/quantum mechanics based immortality thanks to having the soul of Schrodinger. Yes, he is no longer a OneManArmy, but he is now even more virtually immortal and practically ''timeless.'']]

** 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.

** Rugged Pip Bernadotte, with his cowboy hat, is not unlike Quincey Morris. He even sacrifices his life to save a woman he loves.

** Rugged Pip Bernadotte, with his cowboy hat, is not unlike Quincey Morris. Morris (both being the "outsiders" in a sense; Quincy was the only non-European (he was American) while Pip is implied to have French blood by the name.) He even sacrifices his life to save a woman he loves.

* Everyone who's heard the theme from the original ''Hellsing'' series, "World Without Logos," basically knows that the lyrics make no fricking sense, right? I took this for granted until I realized what the title meant: "Logos," as described by Aristotle, means "reasoned discourse." Well, the song actually is a good indication of a world without reasoned discourse. ~Eriyu

* When Maxwell and his Crusaders are [[spoiler: slaughtering the innocent citizens of London]], he keeps referring to them as Protestant heathens who deserve to die terrible deaths. However, London is a very diverse city and has a significant minority of Catholics, with the exact number hovering around 10% for all of England. This means that tens of thousands of those killed in the London attacks were ''Catholic'', which may also explain some of Anderson's anger and the Vatican's orders not to attack anyone except the Nazis.

* Why did the Major reward Rip by not killing her, and then punish Zorin by not killing her? Because, [[spoiler:the Major knew that Alucard would devour Rip Van Winkle-- the reward, as it were, was to live inside of Alucard as one of his most powerful familiars (her magic bullet ability is incredibly useful for someone like Alucard). She would thus effectively live forever through Alucard. But Zorin... the Major knew that Seras would not drink her blood, would not take her soul within herself. When Zorin died, it would be a final death. A punishment befitting someone who failed, to have her blood rejected by Seras entirely so that she would not live on through Seras.]]

** Seras Victoria, a young vampire yet to drink blood, is bound to obey her “master.” She is in the exact same situation that Renfield was, when Dracula/Alucard had him—except of course that Seras is not insane.
*** In other ways, Seras resembles Lucy Westenra - a young blonde who is sexualized and yet virginal, and who is turned by Dracula/Alucard, in contrast to "Sir Integra" as a genuinely "New Woman" version of Mina.

* Alucard's insistience on only humans being able to destroy monsters, while he himself is [[HunterOfHisOwnKind slaughtering them en masse]], seems a bit far fetched, but then, he doesn't actually kill them, he absorbs them.

* When Alucard [[spoiler: vaccuums the blood from all the bodies in London's ruins to restore the army of lives that act as "batteries" for him, both to restore himself and as a sort of middle finger to Walter,]] think about what that means. Many of the lives he now has in his possession are [[NightmareFuel the innocent people of London who were first painfully and horrifically murdered and now their very souls are stored inside a monster]] A [[AntiHero somewhat]] well-intentioned monster, but [[HorrifyingHero still a monster]].
** [[spoiler: and to add to that, less than half of the killed have their very souls sucked inside a "disappeared to limbo/who-knows-where" Alucard who then spends the next 30 years slaughtering the 3 million+ souls he managed to absorb (probably a relief for them afterwards but the experience was most likely horrible). So yeah, normal citizen, suddenly airships, bombs and terrible deaths, turned to ghouls, then soul siphoned into an abomination and then stuck inside him while he's in limbo where he then hunts you all down and "murders" you again over 3 decades. Does the after-life have trauma sessions for souls before entering Heaven?]]

* The [[PunnyName NAME]] of the damn series. The words 'Hellsing' and "[[VanHelsing Helsing]]" sound quite similar, no? Appropriate for a series about vampires, vampire hunting, and vampire vampire hunters.
