The manga became a victim to ExecutiveMeddling which caused it to end at 93 chapters while the author had originally meant for it to have been more than a hundred. Later it's mostly remembered as the shoujo that used to have its famous GloryDays, ranking top spots in several shoujo lists in Japan, until SeasonalRot heavily kicked in and it ultimately ended on an abrupt note, culminating in the story being considered the mangaka's CreatorKiller instead.

** A more trolling version. [[spoiler:After a thousand years has passed in the last chapter, Yuuki is seen with two children, to which it's made ambiguous whether both of them are Zero's, or one is Kaname's. With the release of a bonus chapter however, the girl is confirmed to be Kaname's.]]

* BodyHorror: [[spoiler: Zero has a rather disturbing incident before going off to face Rido.]] [[spoiler: Kaname could also count in the flashback that shows his rather decayed body at the moment he's awoken by Rido after a milleniums' long slumber.]]

* BreakingTheFourthWall: At the end of some of the volumes, particularily in the second arc, the characters would comment on having to "wait six months in this position to see what happens next".
* BreakTheCutie: What happened with eleven-year old Zero.

** [[spoiler:In the penultimate chapter, Zero attempts to talk Kaname out of sacrificing himself, explaining that what he does only brings pain to Yuuki rather than acting like compensation for his actions. This was possibly stemming from Zero's own self-destructive thinking throughout most of the story, not believing himself to be worthy of love and more deserving of dying, even ''before'' being turned into a vampire (for "stealing" part of Ichiru's life in the vomb). Having eventually realized his self-loathing mindset had only served to hurt both Ichiru and Yuuki however, rather than being a said compensation, he recognized this similar kind of mindset in Kaname and thus confronted him about it, epitomizing his CharacterDevelopment.]]

* CannotSpitItOut: Any interaction between Yuuki and Zero in the second arc may count to this. It's bad, in other words.

* CycleOfRevenge: Zero hates vampires because [[spoiler: Hiou Shizuka, a pureblood, killed his vampire hunter parents AND turned him into a vampire]]. He hates them so much that he vows to kill [[spoiler: her]] and every other pureblood vampire, even [[spoiler: Yuuki once it's revealed that she herself is one]]. He also has no issue offing himself once the deed gets done. Later we find out [[spoiler: Hiou Shizuka killed his parents because ''they killed someone very precious to her'' -- only because this person's name was put on the "assassination list" for some malevolent reason, despite the fact he wasn't a Level E]]. It could have gotten ''worse'' had everyone continued to believe he killed [[spoiler: Shizuka]] which, if not for Kaname, would have brought down the vengeance of the vampire senate on Zero.

* DestructiveRomance: [[spoiler:Yuuki and Kaname, being prone to bring out the worst in each other. With him, Yuuki changes from her determined, energetic, joyful and relatively action-driven self to being a needy, insecure, whiny and timid StayInTheKitchen girlfriend, being "reminded of her place" and how weak she is, should she ever oppose him. In turn, Kaname keeps manipulating and killing whoever he sees fit “for her sake” (awaiting no request from her), leaving her with the guilt and sadness from it afterwards. There are also very rare, if none, cases of the two looking happy together (unless you refer to five year old Yuuki.)]]
** Although, they waver between this and RomanticizedAbuse, given how the author still portray them in a romantic light despite all the unhealthy aspects.
* DeusExMachina: [[spoiler:At the end, the solution to coexistence is a sudden discovery of an old theorized cure that can transform vampires into humans.]]

* EasilyForgiven: Kaname, who can manipulate and kill whoever he wants, good or bad, as long as it's "for Yuuki" nearly everyone in the story will free pass him. It's even more ironic when people like Shizuka and [[spoiler:Sara]] were labeled villains for doing far less crimes than that of Kaname's record. Even [[spoiler:Rido]] lived with his unrequited love for a whole ''3, 000 years before going mad'', vs Kaname who couldn't help but treat Zero like dirt from very early on.

* {{Irony}}: Zero's vampire hunter family is killed by a pureblood vampire, next to turning Zero to a vampire himself and making his brother betray him, all in one night. This causes him to hate vampires, purebloods especially.[[spoiler: It's then revealed that Yuuki whom he lives with for four years afterwards, who helps healing his heart and who he falls in love with, [[AwfulTruth is a pureblood vampire.]]]]

** In Vampire Knight, society is divided between vampires and humans/hunters, who don't go very well along. Then you have the fandom mostly divided in two major groups as well; Zero/Yuuki and Kaname/Yuuki supporters. It's hard to decide in which of the two opposing sides you'd rather not end up in the crossfire of.
** Throughout the story Kaname's [[spoiler:death would often be hinted towards/foreshadowed, while most believed Yuuki and Zero to be relatively safe considering their age and "innocence". By the end of the story however, Yuuki and Zero are dead while Kaname's alive (though he ''did'' "die" [[DisneyDeath beforehand.)]]]]
* IWantMyBelovedToBeHappy: Kaname and Zero both about Yuuki, though Zero a bit more obviously as he several times in the first arc mentioned how he only wants Yuuki to smile "from the bottom of her heart". Even after [[spoiler: TheReveal that alienates him, his main reason for separating with Yuuki is apparently because he believes she doesn't need him and will be happy with Kaname.]]

* [[spoiler:NoRomanticResolution: Nope. Regardless how canon either fandom should percieve their interpretation to be, Yuuki never makes it official which man she loves more. It doesn't help that the ending can also be taken as Kaname either ''telling'' Yuuki to be with Zero, or ''letting'' her.]]
