** 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.'']]

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. ]]

** 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.

** 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.]]
