* ABNegative: They actually not only [[ShownTheirWork get the blood type info right]], saying Schanke, who is AB+ , "can take anything but motor oil," while O- can only receive O-, it's involved in a plot point, too. [[spoiler:The killer's mother had died from hepatitis contracted from a blood transfusion, which slipped through the screening process; he was taking out only O- donors who could have been the source.]]

* UnexplainedRecovery: [=LaCroix=] is killed off in the first episode [[note]]well, 2nd half of a two-parter[[/note]], and shows up strictly in {{Flash Back}}s for the remainder of the season. Then at the end of the first season it's revealed that he survived.
** Of course, it was pretty obvious [=LaCroix=] survived considering the smirk the "dead body" gave off.
*** That was the first time, which he's impaled on a steel construction frame, which wouldn't kill him. He's 'killed' a second time by being impaled and burnt up with a flaming timber. When [=LaCroix=] reappears in Season 2, his only explanation is that he's too old and powerful to be killed.

* DaddysLittleVillain: See CreepyChild above.[[InvertedTrope Inverted]]. [=LaCroix=]'s daughter Divia became a vampire first and is the reason for him becoming one too, not the other way around. She's also far more amoral and embracing of her monstrous nature than even her machiavellian father, which led him to [[SealedEvilInACan seal her away]] for two thousand years.

** The oldest immortal seen in the show is a thousands-year old vampire known as "The Ancient One" who turned [=LaCroix=]'s daughter, who in turn turned him. Supposedly Egyptian, but hinted to be even older.

** "Curiouser and Curiouser". [[spoiler: A woman is killed in "The Raven" when Nick botches taking down a pair of shotgun-armed robbers. Nick proceeds to hallucinate a world in which [=LaCroix=] has been murdered, "The Raven" is run by Cohen, Janette is his wife and the mother of his child, and Natalie is his captain and mistress.]]

Airing from 1992 through 1996, this series examined the plight of Nicholas Knight, an 800 year old vampire who is determined to reclaim his humanity. In the meantime, he works as a police detective in UsefulNotes/{{Toronto}}, Canada; he is assisted in both causes by coroner (and love interest) Natalie Lambert. His efforts are often mocked and sometimes thwarted by [[IHateYouVampireDad maker Lucien [=LaCroix=]]] and "Big Sister" and [[spoiler: ex?]]lover Janette [=DuCharme=].

* 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.")]]

* 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.
