* In ''Manga/{{Hellsing}}'', Seras uses a group of elderly Japanese tourists to break up a fight between Alucard and [[KnightTemplar Alexander Anderson]] in a museum, requiring the two combatants to freeze in place and be treated like statues. [[HilarityEnsues It's just as funny as it sounds.]]
** Made doubly hilarious by one of the gramps complaining to his friend, while pointing at the Alucard's [[HandCannon enormous guns]], that "[[UsefulNotes/KatanasOfTheRisingSun they]] [[WithThisHerring didn't have that]] [[UsefulNotes/WorldWarII in Manchuria]]".
