* OurVampiresAreDifferent: Vampires are described as the "kings of oddities," and for good reason. They have enhanced strength, speed, and senses; they can suck blood, but also have an [[EnergyAbsorption energy-draining touch]] and can devour other monsters to increase their own power; [[CastingAShadow they can hide in shadows]]; they have a HealingFactor [[spoiler:so powerful it puts most examples of FromASingleCell to shame]]; and they can even TimeTravel. They are, of course, immortal unless killed, but their physical age depends on how strong they happen to be at the moment. They have the classic weaknesses to sunlight ([[spoiler:although this merely causes their bodies to break apart--FromASingleCell can kick in]]) and holy water. It's implied (but not clearly demonstrated) that they MustBeInvited, and [[CannotCrossRunningWater they can't swim]]. Koyomi is described as "one-tenth vampire", something that is only maintained due to him periodically feeding Shinobu his blood. He can improve his powers by letting her suck more blood than usual, although there seems to be some sort of sweet spot between him enhancing his powers and having too little blood to function.

* AuthorAppeal: According to WordOfGod, the reason for all the [[BrotherSisterIncest fanservice]] in ''Nisemonogatari'' was that Nisioisin originally wrote it for himself and had no plans to publish it.
** He said almost the exact same thing about Bake.
