* LordBritishPostulate: Most famously found in the Rules for Fighting Caine: "You lose." However, this isn't limited to Caine; Antediluvians and Methuselahs are, in general, not given stats because any coterie of random [=PCs=] has no chance against living gods with Disciplines in the 8-10 range, and the game designers don't give them stats for precisely this reason. Such characters only die because [[{{Railroading}} the plot demands it]].

* HorrorHungerHorrorHunger: There's the usual thirst for blood, which can lead a starving vampire into Frenzy trying to slake their thirst. And then there's ''Methuselah's Thirst.'' Simply put, elder vampires eventually can only derive sustenance from ''other vampires.'' But drinking vampire blood induce Blood Bond, so they would go all the way to [[YourSoulIsMine Diablerie.]] But what about the truly ancient ones? If your elder needs to drink vampire blood, what would ''his'' elder drink?

At direct war with the Camarilla are the Sabbat, a sect of vampire anarchist religious fanatics who say to hell with hiding from humans. Oddly, there are only two clans wholly steeped in the Sabbat (with the rest of the ranks filled by outcasts from their parent clan): The [[EvilIsStylish wickedly stylish]] [[MagnificentBastard Lasombra]] and the cold, alien-minded [[BlueAndOrangeMorality Tzimisce]]. There are four clans who fancy themselves independent: The Assamite, middle eastern [[ProfessionalKiller vampire assassins]], the Followers of Set, [[TheHedonist vice-peddling schemers from Egypt]], the Giovanni, an inbred [[BigScrewedUpFamily family of Italian vampire aristos]], and the Ravnos, [[TheTrickster nomadic, illusionist thieves.]]

* {{Sadist}}: The Toreador antitribu are undeniably this. In the Revised Edition of Guide to the Sabbat, they "find human suffering, pain, and cruelty beautiful" and "take pleasure in the torment of others and reveling in the gore with which they surround themselves." Even some of the other Sabbat [[EvenEvilHasStandards find them disgusting]], believing that the "perverts" are [[ForTheEvulz only interested in suffering for suffering's sake]] rather then a specific purpose.

* WhamEpisode: The Week of Nightmares, depicted at the end of the Time of Thin Blood book. The Ravnos Antediluvian wakes up and goes on a rampage in Bangladesh, causing the entire Ravnos clan go insane for a week trying to kill each other and anyone else around, spitting out dangerous illusions. The three most powerful Eastern vampires try to stop him, conjuring a hurricane to block out the Sun. The hurricane prevents the [[TabletopGame/MageTheAscension Technocracy]] from using their orbital mirrors, so they launch a dual-plane (Skinland/Shadowland-affecting) nuclear weapon. It kills the Kuei-jin and hurts Ravnos. The hurricane dissipates and the Technocracy hits Ravnos with their mirrors of doom, which may not have worked if the Kuei-jin and the nuke hadn't hurt him first. In the wake an entire clan is near dead, the Antediluvians are clearly real and other consequences reverberate [[TabletopGame/WerewolfTheApocalypse across]] [[TabletopGame/MageTheAscension all]] [[ChangelingTheDreaming the]] [[HunterTheReckoning other]] [[TabletopGame/DemonTheFallen games]].

** The Ravnos practicing this in their battles with the Kuei-Jin is what caused the Week of Nightmares. Long story short, the Ravnos would mass embrace children, and send them into battle against their enemies. These increasingly weaker children would die quickly. The increasing amount of deaths of these descendants is what eventually caused their Antedelluvian to wake up.
