** The picture of [[VideoGame/DevilMayCry Dante]] in the corebook, however, is ''not'' a shout out -- it was [[{{Plagiarism}} plagiarised]] by the artist, and White Wolf were not happy when they found out.

* CaptainErsatz: One of the pictures in the core Vigil rulebook is [[VideoGame/DevilMayCry Dante]] with a rifle instead of a sword. (Justified in the worst way, as [[{{Plagiarism}} it was lifted]] from a picture of Dante.)

** In the sourcebook ''Slasher'', one of the rumored origins for the Subtle Collectors Association, an organization of serial killers, is that it was founded by a wealthy Englishman who enjoyed abducting art students. There is a movie, starring Terence Stamp, called ''The Collector'', which is about a wealthy Englishman who abducts an art student. The same sourcebook features an entomologist-turned-serial-killer named Michael Elliot, likely a reference to Dr. Robert Elliot, played by Michael Caine in Creator/BrianDePalma's movie ''Dressed To Kill''. Also, the [[InfectiousInsanity madness-inducing]] Driver seems to take a few cues from John Ryder from [[Film/TheHitcher The Hitcher]].

** The Hunt Club is composed entirely of serial killers who have a point system for their murders. The concept of the Lucifuge ''terrifies'' them.

** The introduction for Task Force: VALKYRIE contains a remark about some coastal towns in Massachusetts whose inhabitants suddenly vanished after an army raid. [[Creator/HPLovecraft Innsmouth, anyone?]] Also, the guy who founded them was named [[Series/TheWildWildWest Artemis Gordon]].

** In the corebook, several archetypal hunters are described for each compact and conspiracy. One of the archetypes given for the Cheiron Group is clearly [[AmericanPsycho Patrick Bateman]].

* ZombieAdvocate: The Talbot Group, a.k.a. [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin The Redeemers]] try to rehabilitate supernaturals, primarily focused on werewolves. This is still the World of Darkness, so sometimes even they need to solve problems with violence. In perspective though, they only solve it when there is no other resort. Often, they'll burn down a haunted house or forcibly exorcise a possessed, but to actually ''kill'' is a massive problem for the Talbot Group. (Although, unfortunately, they have the mistaken idea that werewolves are a form of Spirit-Claimed).

** The Reckoning hunt Heroes because they feel [[TabletopGame/BeastThePrimordial Beasts]] are part of the natural order and tend to not make that much real damage as long as they are left alone, while Heroes tend to make more harm than good by slaying them (which, to be fair, is true). However, they are still willing to kill Beasts they see as dangerous, and have no qualm using them as baits to attract Heroes.

* AndThenJohnWasAZombie: Quite possible, since hunters are mortals, and the state of mortality is...easily changed. Depending on the supernatural creature a hunter becomes though, [[CursedWithAwesome he may not mind]], especially if his cell was already a cancer cell (which, in the VanHelsingHateCrimes terminology of Hunter, means a cell with a supernatural being having unofficial membership or at least a close friendship). Not a focus, but there's an Elixir in Night Stalkers that causes the Ascending One imbibing it to turn into a [[VampireTheRequiem vampire]] (presumably a [[DarkIsEdgy Mekhet]], since they hail from AncientEgypt too) for a night. A [[GoneHorriblyWrong dramatic failure]] causes the Elixir to work as intended...[[OhCrap except for the "wears off" bit]].

* BloodyMurder: The Bleeder, a Task Force: VALKYRIE weapon with the nasty effect of making a [[VampireTheRequiem vampire's]] blood leak out of his body, usually in a violent manner, like vomiting. But wait, there's more: on an exceptional success, the unfortunate vamp's blood vessels literally EXPLODE, tearing apart his skin and muscle in a veritable spectacle of {{Squick}}. Good lord ...monster or not, you don't want to mess with TheMenInBlack.

* BodySurf: Owls ([[CanonImmigrant also known as]] [[VampireTheRequiem Strix]]) are ghostly spirits that hijack human and vampire bodies, transforming them into Bloodjackers, creatures somewhere between a [[OurVampiresAreDifferent vampire]] and a [[OurZombiesAreDifferent zombie]]. The body drinks blood but continues to rot; when it's worn out or destroyed the Owl simply hijacks another. Elder Demons are also prone to doing this.
