* ThoseWackyNazis: Millennium. They wear swastikas, speak German and declare war with the world, which is where their Nazism ends. They don't care about Nazi Germany's sociopolitical ideals or racism. All they want is combat and war.

'''''Hellsing''''' exists as the original manga, which ran from 1997 to 2008 in Young King Ours magazine (released by DarkHorseComics in North America), an OVA series (''Hellsing Ultimate''), and a television series (simply ''Hellsing''). The television series and the first three [=OVAs=] were originally released by Geneon before the rights went to Funimation. A prequel begun in 2001, ''Hellsing: The Dawn'', focuses on Alucard and a young Walter during UsefulNotes/WorldWar2. (Did we mention Alucard is a girl in that prequel?)

'''This page deals with the manga and its OVA. [[Anime/{{Hellsing}} There is a separate page for the TV series]].'''

** During one of their shoot-outs, Alucard calls Alexander "Judas Priest", which is a reference [[JudasPriest to both the heavy metal band of the same name]] and to the namesake of the Iscariot Organization.

** Almost all of the cast is based from Hirano's old and obscure Hentai works. Anderson, The Major, The Captain and The Doktor are the exact same with no glaring changes; Alucard, Seras and The Valentine brothers appear as themselves in ''The Legend of the Vampire Hunter'', a one-shot erotic doujinshi of what it would turn into this series much later.

* OurSoulsAreDifferent: In the limbo sense. Any person whose blood Alucard consumes becomes a part of his massive army of undead, essentially acting as spare lives that he can use in combat. It's the main reason why he's practically impossible to kill, although Schrödinger manages to work around it.
* OurVampiresAreDifferent: Despite various rules mentioned that vampires have to follow, few in this series do so. Seras, however, is bound to most traditional limitations. Alucard even comments how he can walk under the sun, but doesn't do so often because it's "exhausting". Justified with Alucard, as the Hellsing organization spent pretty much the entire century they've had him in their custody experimenting on him so he won't have the same weaknesses of other vampires.
** Crossing large bodies of water is an issue, as addressed in Stoker's novel. He certainly can't be immersed in it, and most of the travel must be done within his coffin. Seems to apply directly to the water, as flying over in a plane has less of an effect on him. [[spoiler:Seras gets stuffed in her coffin, partly out of this and partly RuleOfFunny.]]
** In the eighth volume, it's revealed that Alucard's NighInvulnerability stems from the fact that he [[spoiler:has inside of him the souls of every person he's ever devoured and that it essentially acts as spare lives for him.]]

Added DiffLines:

** A lot of the dialogue in the climax have different characters reacting to each others' lines when they're in different locations altogether and joined together only by jump cuts, even to the point of a short dialogue at a few points. While most of these instances [[MST3KMantra don't make any logical sense]], it does amp up the drama to have the characters speaking to each other at critical points as the plot ties up.


Added DiffLines:

* VocalDissonance: "Girlycard" maintains Alucard's [[BadassBaritone deep and menacing voice]] in both the original and English dubs, despite looking like a schoolgirl.
