* GlowingEyesOfDoom: The Strix's GlamourFailure when they're doing the DemonicPossession gig. They're [[OminousOwl owls]], owl eyes flash in light...etc. Unfortunately, they're DangerouslyGenreSavvy enough to know this, and more social members of the race can make non-possessed people do that, too.

* CrapsackWorld - ''Especially'' for humans.
** "Especially?" No, thank you, I'm perfectly fine with being a blood doll as opposed to having to deal with a society entirely composed of {{Manipulative Bastard}}s and an EnemyWithin, thank you very much.
** [[TabletopGame/HunterTheVigil Some humans take issue with this state of affairs]] and have developed potent tools towards that end-such as a device that essentially makes a vampire's unique metabolism self-destruct in rather graphic fashion.

** The Dead Wolves bloodline from Shadows of Mexico are [[TabletopGame/WerewolfTheForsaken wolf-blooded]] who just so happen to have been Embraced before the First Change. Sort of. So I guess BigScrewedUpFamily as well? Their bloodline discipline references the mechanics for the various moons and their related skills in Werewolf as well.

** Horrifically, Belial gets similar treatment. Dracula, too.
*** Not entirely true with Dracula. He's not the MessianicArchetype to the Ordo Dracul, he's just a really smart guy they all want to emulate. It's a bit more like modern physicists idolizing Einstein or Maxwell, or rock musicians looking up to the Beatles.

** The Ordo Dracul is a subversion because they don't even really care about vampire politics, much less the affairs of mortals, so long as they're allowed to study in peace.
** The Carthians are a subversion because they're not really all that ancient- they only date back to the Enlightenment, which makes them practically neonates compared to the other Covenants.

Added DiffLines:

* 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.

* CityOfAdventure - New Orleans

to:

* ChronicBackstabbingDisorder - Zig-zagged, depending on splatbook. For example; in ''World of Darkness: Chicago,'' it's played straight with Richard Tabor.
* CityOfAdventure - New OrleansOrleans is cited to possess the best aesthetic for any Vampire campaign that doesn't have the capacity to purely homebrew a Vampire city. Los Angeles is also a noted city for a Vampire campaign, given its connections to Kindred history.

** The art for the Moroi bloodline from the Ordo Dracul sourcebook is clearly meant to be [[{{Blade}} Jared Nomak]].

** In KindredOfTheEast, Malaysia was a [[WretchedHive lawless, dangerous place]] ruled by the Golden Court of the Penangallan Queens. In this game, they're [[{{Expy}} exactly the same]], even down to the title. The only difference is they now work for the largely European Invictus. Another reference to the Kuei-jin is the elevation of larvae. Awfully similar to what that game did for chih-mei.

** ''Wicked Dead'' offers up a number of non-Kindred vampires ranging from the Mnemovores, who feed on memories, to the Jiang Shi, the fabled "[[ChineseVampire hopping corpses]]".

** The Resilience Discipline further augments a vampire's ability to tank damage. In 2e, it even protects a vampire from ''fire'' and any Bane damage.

Added DiffLines:

* SuspiciouslySimilarSubstitute: The Julii Clan of the Camarilla and the Ventrue Clan of the modern era are so similar to each other -- the only difference being Julii vampires are more likely to lose their Humanity and Ventrue vampires are more likely to be driven insane by their sins -- that this trope is actually observed InUniverse, with most believing that the Ventrue are "heirs" to the Julii. Most likely a Bloodline that supplanted their progenitors.

* '''Daeva:''' Faster, stronger and sexier, [[HornyDevils the Serpents]] are the sex symbols of the vampire race. As expected they are [[TheBeautifulPeople good-looking]] or at least very charming. However, out of the five Clans, they are the most tragically inhuman since they are as dead emotionally as they are physically and because of this many of them become jaded and depraved. Their Disciplines are: [[SuperSpeed Celerity]], ''[[{{Glamour}} Majesty]]'' and [[SuperStrength Vigor]].
* '''Gangrel:''' Vampires capable of great ferocity and insight. The Savages may be [[BookDumb simple minded]], but their special bond with the Beast give them a sagacity matched by no other Clan, and, in fact, some of the wisest vampires out there are Gangrel. On the other hand, while other vampires tend towards more... human evil, the Gangrel do boast some atrocious monsters. Their Disciplines are: [[TheBeastmaster Animalism]], ''[[ShapeShifting Protean]]'' and [[MadeOfIron Resilience]]

* ShoutOut: Newer books contain references to popular websites and memes like ImageBoards, LiveJournal, {{Lolcats}}, and Website/YouTube. The dhampir chapter of ''Wicked Dead'' was a goldmine in particular.

Added DiffLines:

* ComboPlatterPowers: Though vampires can learn all of the "common" Disciplines, at least potentially, they are by nature inclined towards mastery of a few, based on their Clan and, potentially, their Bloodline. The precise combination of Disciplines can be rather surprising. For example, the Daeva (whose niche is VampiresAreSexGods) have access to not only the [[CharmPerson Majesty Discipline]], but also the [[SuperSpeed Celerity]] and [[SuperStrength Vigour]] Disciplines as well.
