* HairTriggerTemper: Several of the vampires, though Lumpi is the worst case -- explained in-universe by the fact that he's an eternal teenager and will never grow out of puberty.

* JustWhistle: In the movie, Anna gives Tony a good luck charm (dead mouse), and tells him to whistle if he ever needs her help. He later does so when Rookery [[NightmareFuel shuts him in a coffin]], and Anna, as promised, shows up to let him out.
* NotGrowingUpSucks: Rüdiger, Anna and Lumpi will forever be the age they were made vampires. It doesn't seem like they actually agree with the trope namer, though. Desperately wanting to grow up is never an issue, even for Lumpi who became a vampire while in puberty and will ''never'' grow out of this difficult phase. Rüdiger and Anna, in contrast, still seem to be children at heart, despite the fact that they have been vampires for at least 150 years.
* OurVampiresAreDifferent: The vampires in this story drink human blood, but can survive on animal blood or - if necessary - eggs as well. They are afraid of the sun and it remains uncertain if sun light would kill them, since the psychologist's desensibilisation program is never tested in practice. A spear through the heart would kill these vampires (as well as any living creature) and they don't like garlic. They don't have any superhuman powers, save for the ability to fly, but even this power comes from their vampire capes (made from a special tissue, as Rüdiger said in one book), so Anton can use one too. Throughout the day, the vampires in this story are unable to move and look dead for the curious observer.

* SlidingScaleOfVampireFriendliness: ''The Little Vampire'' falls somewhere on the friendly half of the scale, as Rudolph and Anna the Toothless are friends to Tony. Aunt Dorothee from the books, however, is quite the opposite.

* DeadpanSnarker: Anton, usually as either a coping mechanism or to detract attention away from questions he doesn't want to answer.

* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: Other times, he can be like this. Lumpi also qualifies.

* CompleteMonster: Rookery in the movie is this. He tries to kills Tony twice, first running him over with his truck and then shutting him in a coffin. It seems like he also, unlike many other vampires hunters, hunts vampires for some twisted FantasticRacism feeling he has towards'em.
