There are going to be some ''interesting'' [[WhatMeasureIsANonHuman philosophical questions]] when these two meet. [[JusticeWillPrevail (Or not.)]]

Van Helsing Hate Crimes are what happen when a medium that includes monsters and/or monster hunters calls attention to the fact that, in that [[TheVerse 'verse]] at least, [[SlidingScaleOfVampireFriendliness not all monsters are, well]]...[[HaveYouTriedNotBeingAMonster monsters]]. Some of them are [[DarkIsNotEvil perfectly decent folks]] [[MonstersAnonymous trying to fit in]] who happen to get lumped in with the one or two bad apples, like {{Dracula}}. Of course, this will result in the monster hunters either learning AnAesop or turning out to be [[HeWhoFightsMonsters those who fight monsters]]...oh, you know what I mean. If there are both good and bad monsters within this universe, expect the hunters to be ''far'' more competent at attacking the good ones.

Compare FantasticRacism, which is like this only on a more wide-spread, societal scale. Also compare ZombieAdvocate, who argues in favor of the monster's [[WhatMeasureIsANonHuman humanity]], and InhumanableAlienRights, when the hunter is a government agency of some kind. See also StagesOfMonsterGrief, for monsters who may or may not like their condition. See also BurnTheWitch

* ''ShadowOfTheCollosus'' takes this as a primary theme. You have to kill Collosi to advance the story, but it's heavily implied that at least some of them are perfectly peaceful and they don't deserve to die.

* Mixed with GreenAesop in ''WesternAnimation/DragonsRidersOfBerk'': The Dragon Hunters are the equivalent of furtive hunters, hunting dragons for their skins and other uses, also [[BeastlyBloodsports to fight each other]] and as [[MadeASlave slave labor]], much to the outrage of the main characters.

* In contrast with ''Manga/{{Hellsing}}'', in ''Manga/{{Karin}}'', vampires usually only take enough blood to make the person feel anemic and drained of emotion (which can actually be a ''good'' thing, if a person has a lot of negative emotions). So it's not surprising that Vampire Hunters are portrayed as {{Knight Templar}}S.
