* MissingReflection: Zig-zagged. Most vampires don't appear in mirrors, but Nick having a reflection was handwaved as being because of his progress toward humanity. In reality, budget issues prevented the editing out of every reflection.

* CreepyChild: Divia, who is both [=LaCroix's=] mortal daughter and later his maker.

* KillEmAll: We really mean it about the Downer Ending. [[spoiler: Okay, you asked for it. After a season of killing off or sending away the supporting cast, Nick's partner Tracy gets killed in the line of duty, with Nick facing an Internal Affairs investigation for killing the guy who shot her. Then, while preparing to make love to his mortal love interest Natalie, Nick drinks so much blood from her that she ends up near death. Instead of turning her into a vampire and a killer (she had previously said she was "not afraid of death, or an eternity in darkness" if it meant they would be together), he chooses to let her die, then asks [=LaCroix=] to kill him, as he can't live without her. [=LaCroix's=] final line (the final line of the series) as he stands behind Nick with a stake, summed up many fans' reaction to this ending: "Damn you, Nicholas.")]]

* ShootTheBuilder / RapeIsASpecialKindOfEvil: Just to show us that [=LaCroix's=] evil ''before'' he became a vampire, he's shown as a Roman general, boasting of how he had the eyes of the sculptor of his bust put out, and ordered his legionaries to rape the Gaulish women after his victory.
* StarCrossedLovers: Nick and Natalie, due among other things to the human/vampire CantHaveSexEver factor and [=LaCroix's=] declared intention to take vengeance on any woman Nick truly loves.

* KillThePoor: One of the show's most despicable of its many killers-of-the-week was a businessman who considered the poor to be parasites and took the mantle of "Dragon" so he could [[ManOnFire exterminate them with a flame thrower]]. He even lured in one of his victims by promising the man some spare change.
