* Nakama: In the show, Damon + Elena + Stefan + Caroline + Bonnie + Jeremy + Alaric.

to:

* Nakama: MustBeInvited: The limitation on vampires also applies here.
** In a FridgeLogic moment, one man who became a vampire suddenly found himself barred from his own home. Since he lived alone, there was nobody who could invite him inside, and apparently the rules don't regard a vampire as a rightful owner. Gets especially odd when it is confirmed that a vampire ''can'' enter a house whose sole inhabitant is dead. The general fan assumption is simply that someone else owns the house.
** The vampires themselves have taken advantage of this, by living with a [[MindControl severely compulsed]] human in order to create a threshold to keep out unfriendly vampires.
** The opposite is a problem for Damon: He killed the only human in his house, so now hostile vampires can come and go whenever they please. He doesn't even bother locking the door anymore.
** In the second season [[spoiler: Elijah]] is killed, his body is moved into a house he hadn't been invited into, and comes back to life. In apparent pain he mutters "I can't be here" and runs outside.
** In the 18th episode of season 2 Elena legally gets ownership of the Salvatore house. The brothers even have to stand outside while the paperwork is filed.
** In the second to last episode of season 3 Klaus wants to get into the Gilbert Residence to take Elena (who is actually not there at the time). He is told he will not be getting an invitation, so then he super throws a soccer ball and a few fence posts. Last he is seen with a container of gasoline and lite piece of wood.
* {{Nakama}}:
In the show, Damon + Elena + Stefan + Caroline + Bonnie + Jeremy + Alaric.

* ShirtlessScene: ''TheVampireDiaries'' must have a "one shirtless scene per episode" clause in, um, all of its male actor's contracts. Because the two male leads are played by the gorgeous, hunky, and ripped Paul Wesley and Ian Somerhalder, this is very much appreciated by the large female fanbase. Damon and Stefan aren't the only ones running around sans shirt on the show either; Elena's younger brother Jeremy ([[DawsonCasting who is suspiciously ripped for a ostensible sixteen-year-old]]) is frequently shown shirtless, as is her good friend Matt. And most male characters run around in tank tops when not completely shirtless.

* ActingForTwo: Nina Dobrev is currently playing the show's main character Elena and one of the antagonists, Katherine.



* ActorAllusion:
** Mia Kirshner, who plays a vampire, also starred in the early 90's series ''Dracula''.
** Jack Coleman plays [[Series/{{Heroes}} the father of a blond-haired girl with supernatural powers]]. He also hunts people with similar supernatural powers.
* ActorSharedBackground: Katherine is originally Bulgarian. So is Nina Dobrev.



* DawsonCasting: The mostly teenage cast is played by actors in their 20s, making some casting choices downright bizarre. The actors who play the Gilberts are only one year apart, starting with Nina Dobrev (20), Steven R. Mc Queen (21), and [[PlayingGertrude Sarah Canning (22).]] And to top it off, [[Series/ADifferentWorld Whitley Gilbert]] (48) a grandma?!
** This is made extra weird by the casting of John Anders (born 1981) as [[spoiler: Elena's [[AbsurdlyYouthfulMother father]], John Gilbert.]] Isobel, who is supposed to be younger than him even without being a vampire, is played 35-year-old Mia Kirshner.
** Justified in the case of Jasmine Guy as "Grams" Sheila Bennett; she's meant to have preternatural longevity as a witch. Stefan mentions first meeting her at a protest rally in the 60s, though he's not sure she would remember. She did.



* FakeAmerican: Elena is played by Bulgarian-born Canadian Nina Dobrev
** Several of the originals (at least Klaus, Rebekah, and Kol plus the dead son Henrick) were born in the New World, making them and are not played by American actors



* [[FakeNationality Fake Ethnicity]]: Hispanic Michael Trevino plays the white Tyler Lockwood who is descended from Native Americans.



* HeyItsThatGuy: [[Series/{{Lost}} Boone]] is a vampire, [[Series/{{Firefly}} Zoe]] is a bartender, [[TheOC Julie Cooper]] is Matt's mom, [[Series/{{Alias}} Sark]] is Jeremy and Elena's uncle [[spoiler:except he's actually Elena's father]], and [[Series/DegrassiTheNextGeneration Mia]] now lives in Virginia.
** Don't forget about [[{{Unfabulous}} Geena]].
** [[FamilyMatters Little Richie]] is all grown up and may not have Bonnie's best interests in mind.
** Caroline's father wants to [[Series/{{Heroes}} Save the Vampire, Save the World]]. Bonus points that she was once a cheerleader
** [[CousinSkeeter Bobby]] is Jamie



* McLeaned: [[spoiler:Alaric]] was killed shortly before it was announced that CW would pick up a new show starring his actor.



* RomanceOnTheSet: Ian Somerhalder and Nina Dobrev.
** Candice Accola and Steven Mcqueen also dated but their characters were never really involved with each other.
** Also Paul Wesley's wife Torrey Devitto plays Meredith Fell.



* WhatCouldHaveBeen: A deleted scene reveals Kelly Donovan, Matt's mother, as a succubus.

* SalemIsWitchCountry: The Bennet family of witches originally lived in Salem but relocated to Mystic Falls after the trials started.
-->'''Bonnie''': Was our family burned in the witch trials?\\
'''Sheila''': No, the girls that were persecuted in Salem were entirely innocent. You have to have more than ignorance to trap a real witch.\\
'''Bonnie''': How did we end up in Mystic Falls?\\
'''Sheila''': Our family fled Salem in 1692 and relocated here. Our ancestors lived in secrecy for over a hundred years. It's important that we still do.
