Added DiffLines:

* DistractedByTheSexy: The "Sexualized" merit lets characters use this to their advantage, at the cost of dealing with the fallout from the occasional StupidSexyFlanders moments they inflict on people around them.

* '''Ordo Dracul:''' By studying what it means to be a vampire, using a [[MadScientist scientific method]] [[{{Magitek}} blended with]] [[HermeticMagic occultism]], they try to find a way to [[EvilutionaryBiologist transcend the curse limitations]], such as that little sunlight allergy. The result of such studies are the ''[[SufficientlyAnalyzedMagic Coils of the Dragon]]'', powers negate some of their weaknesses. They make heavy use of a student-mentor program.

** The Ventrue book references the end of Vidal's control of New Orleans, as well as the maybe-Final Death of the Baron.

** The Ventrue book references the end of Vidal's control of New Orleans, as well as the maybe-Final Death of the Baron. Of course, given that the New Orleans setting book was published not long before Hurricane Katrina hit, it would have been more notable if that particular bit of the metaplot ''hadn't'' advanced.

Added DiffLines:

* SheIsTheKing: The ruler of a domain is most commonly called a Prince, regardless of gender. Occasionally you'll see King or Queen, but it's generally considered bad luck to assume either of these titles.

* TheDevTeamThinksOfEverything: The core book informs the curious just what would probably happen if one of the Kindred found themselves at the bottom of a deep-sea trench or [[RecycledINSPACE in outer space,]] with [[{{Parabombing}} parentheticals]] asking just [[WhatTheHellPlayer what kind of chronicle you're playing for this to come up.]]
** [[HilariousInHindsight Six years later, the Infinite Macabre supplement was released.]]

Added DiffLines:

* MissingReflection: Zig-zagged. Vampires typically leave blurry images in mirrors, photos, and films though they can usually make the image look normal by focusing their will. The Hollow Mekhet can't be recorded and don't show up in mirrors at all, because their [[EnemyWithout reflections are off somewhere making trouble]].

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.
