* InTheBlood: Rather literally with Vampirism. It's not until ''Bloodlust'' that we even get a hint that vampires are capable of love.

** Also, isn't it pretty much stated in the first novel that the dear Sacred Ancestor really did [[spoiler:love a human woman, resulting in, of course, D?]]. Of course, given his sometimes-hero-sometimes-monster portrayal between novels, it's really uncertain exactly WHAT he was doing...
*** The implications aren't very good considering that in novel 6 he explicitly rapes a young woman to produce another dhampyr descendant. Though since she goes her way to mention how sad he looked in the act, he probably wasn't getting kicks out of it, either.

* OurVampiresAreDifferent: They follow most of the traditional vampire traits and weaknesses, but there are always a few exceptions - it's mentioned a few times that some vampire lines have different talents. It gets quite a LOT of attention when a vampire acts abnormally (such as the one that can move through water freely).

* EarlyInstallmentWeirdness: In the first novel, Rei-Ginsei actually ''kills'' D using the time-bewitching essence to throw off D's senses just long enough to land a fatal blow (although [[OnlyMostlyDead he survives]] thanks to Left Hand). The idea that [[InvincibleHero D]] could be defeated so easily, even with a handicap, would seem ''absurd'' in later stories.

* AristocratsAreEvil: In this setting, "aristocrat" is a euphemism for "[[OurVampiresAreDifferent vampire]]".
** The novels translate the term as "Noble", probably for the sake of brevity. Still, the trope applies: the high-class rulers of the old civilization were vampires, thus earning their new name.

* InvincibleHero: * BoringInvincibleHero: D tends to be this, sometimes veering into ShowyInvincibleHero depending on how [[PurpleProse purply]] the prose describes his actions. The Author knows this as novels rarely focus on D and instead focus on the human characters and D instead acts like a DeusExMachina for them to escape deadly situations. In short, D is as much a plot device as he is a character. More, in some stories.

* InvincibleVillain: Vampires as a whole in the first book. One aspect that was thankfully discarded without a trace for later books: they've bred it into humanity that if any human discovers one of their weaknesses (like garlic), they'll automatically ''forget'' it - so humans can never get the upper hand.
