** Erasmus Darwin in ''New Watch'' is a lazy example, When Anton meets him, he lives alone in a house in Regent's Park Estate, London, and prefers it that way. He's also implied to be on good terms with Geser, who occasionally sends him magical puzzles. Darwin is a prophet initiated by [[spoiler:Zabulon]]. It seems he simply doesn't want to do anything, good or evil, in start contrast to his grandson CharlesDarwin. The only thing that could possibly put him on the Dark side is his utter lack of concern for his teenage mistress when he, as a teen himself during the 18th century, learns that her soul has been sucked out by the Tiger, who's after him. After [[spoiler:getting the Tiger to leave]], Erasmus briefly wonders whether, now that she's no longer a complete person with dreams and ambitions, his mistress will let him do things in bed that she was previously against.

* The ''Sevastopol Watch'' (2016) by Sergey Nedorub involves the mysterious disappearance of both Watches of the titular Crimean city. Their replacements have no idea what to do and aren't really suited for Watch work.

* CulturalCrossReference: Many to western popular music and literature. Also, a surprising one to anime in ''Day Watch'', in which a witch named Alita wears a ''BattleAngelAlita'' T-shirt.

* VegetarianVampire: It's perfectly possible for vampires to survive on donated or even animal blood. However, most prefer the thrill of luring and biting a victim. Vampires can do this legally by applying for permission to the Night Watch and the Watch is bound by the Treaty to distribute them. They also issue emergency permits to drain a serial killer or other violent criminals, who happen to be too good at evading authorities.

Strangely, instead of requiring all vampires to be this, the Night Watch hands out hunting licenses, accepting the deaths of some for the good of all.

* MugglesDoItBetter: Nukes are the only weapons (except for some extremely powerful spells) that obliterate everything in the area in both the normal dimension and all Twilight layers, leaving the Others nowhere to run. Additionally, as shown in ''The Last Watch'', remote-controlled guns can be extremely effective against the Others due to the fact that machines project no malice and can't be detected with magic. Enchanted guns are even more effective. There is a reason the Others are terrified of humans finding out about the existence of the Others. It would be the witch trials all over again.\\\

Added DiffLines:

** It is not all that bad. Automated machine guns and the SWAT team from Last Watch would be absolutely worthless without enchantments, created by antagonists- Others. And with the way time is warped within the Twilight, it is entirely possible that higher ranking Others might be able to outrun the nuclear blast.

** The Night Watch is considered good but Light Others can be as ruthless as any secret police (or more, given their powers). They also control population of vampires and sometimes authorize transformation and feeding on mundane people without any consent of the latter. This causes [[spoiler: Egor to become disillusioned with the Night Watch]].

*** Similarly, it is the job of the Night Watch to distribute authorizations for "Evil" acts for all Dark Others as per the Treaty.
