Added DiffLines:

* SceneryDissonance: A Type 1 version is deliberately invoked in the sourcebook ''Chronicler's Guide''. It suggested that whenever the characters [[AChatWithSatan had a confrontation with The Devil]], the scene should always be a nice, comfortable surrounding, like a children's playground or a perfumed and clean restroom.

** Macellarius and Noctoku feeding habits are this trope. Noctoku, at least, can absorb blood through their skin. Macellarius are just so disgusting and gluttonous they tend to slop their food all over themselves.

* CannibalClan - The Oberloch bloodline seem to be based on the CannibalClan types you see in horror movies like the ''Franchise/TheTexasChainsawMassacre'', but are actually derived from the [[DeepSouth redneck]] thing. A truer cannibal clan would be the Noctoku, who feed on other vampires exclusively, or the Macellarius, who do that occasionally, but really emphasize the family unit.

* {{Plaguemaster}}: The Morbus Bloodline, whose unique Discipline lets them create and manipulate diseases. Subverted in that they HAVE to spread illnesses because they can only feed from the diseased. Many Morbus try to avoid spreading illness unintentionally, however, by feeding only off of people with one specific illness. Otherwise, they present major threats to the {{Masquerade}} and someone may come along to [[ShootTheDog shoot the plague dog.]]
** The Anvari and Brothers of Ypres Bloodlines sit somewhere between here and PoisonousPerson; both Bloodlines have Disciplines that allow them to taint peoples' blood (with opiates and a poison similar to mustard gas, respectively), and both have the same trait as the Morbus that they can only feed on blood that has been polluted. The Brothers are more diverse in their tastes, though; they tend to prefer chemical poisoning victims, but disease and radiation and other contaminants are all valid flavors for them.

* OurVampiresAreDifferent: Explicitly called out upon in the corebook. The Kindred share a number of traits with pop-culture "gothick" vampires and with mythological ones, but they're different enough that anyone relying on pop-culture is most likely to end up dead if they try hunting one. They can't stand sunlight (though the ones with a stronger grasp on their Humanity can handle it better than the more monstrous ones, in 2e), they hate fire (though, again, 2e Kindred with Resilience can actually downgrade this, too), but garlic, running water and religious symbols all mean diddly squat to them. For the most part. They have a vast variety of supernatural powers, and though they can technically learn all of them given time, they normally start with only a small selection -- SuperStrength, SuperSpeed and CharmPerson, for example. They have euphoric bites and can transform humans into love-addled, mind-controlled slaves called "ghouls" by feeding people their blood. Also, the older they are, the more stringent their dietary restrictions.

* CastFromExperiencePoints: A few of the most powerful Theban Sorcery spells cost Willpower Points; once cast, the stat ''itself'' goes down. Characters can spend XP to buy it back up to the previous level, but until then they're essentially less able to expend mental and emotional energy. Interestingly, creating a new vampire requires the exact same expenditure on part of the vampire's sire. The setting details some sires who mass embrace too many, too quickly, and become emotional wrecks unable to hold themselves together.

** Diablerie is this by way of MonstrousCannibalism - the act of draining another vampire dry during topor and ''devouring their [[YourSoulIsMine soul]]''. While it comes with drawbacks, and is considered a MoralEventHorizon in polite Kindred society, the benefits include an immediate upgrade to the diablerist's blood potency, [[MegaManning and the ability to gain one dot in any skill or discipline that the fallen vampire knew more about than his killer (which can allow diablerists to learn disciplines from outside their clan)]].

**
All of vampire Clan Nosferatu, albeit less so than in Vampire: ''Vampire: The Masquerade.Masquerade''. Their Red Right Hand can manifest as either blatant inhuman traits, an unsightly deformity, or simply having something feel strangely ''[[UncannyValley wrong]]'' about them.
** Those who partake in [[CannibalismSuperpower diablerie]] develop no ''physical'' tells, but when seen through [[AuraVision Auspex]], their auras display TaintedVeins that last for several years after the deed.



* TotalPartyKill: This can happen very easily early on if several members of a coterie blow their Predator's Taint roll when first being introduced to their covenant members.

[[ObviousRulePatch This was patched in later editions]], making Predator's Taint an optional roll that can be made at the storyteller's discretion.

* UnEqualRitesUnEqualRites: Every vampire breed secretly despises the others, with their stereotypes highlighting other clans' flaws while downplaying their own.

* JokeCharacter: The Players, a bloodline with so many drawbacks and weaknesses that they ''scare'' other vampires - nothing can be that weak without some dark surprises, can it? (They're largely a [[AffectionateParody winking poke]] at ''Vampire'' fanboys.)

Added DiffLines:

* MegaManning: Diablerie can result in this, as the transgressor gains a single point in any skill or Discipline that his victim knows more about than he does, which can include Disciplines that aren't natural to the diablerist's clan. Repeat-diablerists [[AllYourPowersCombined can acquire the Disciplines of several different clans]] if they so please.

** There's also "The Other," from the VampireTheRequiem Storyteller's Guide, which can optionally replace the Beast, and is a bit like the PoisonousFriend within.
