* DivorcedIntallment: The original game was supposed to be a licensed Franchise/UniversalHorror fighting game, much like how ''VideoGame/StarGladiator'' was going to be a licensed ''Franchise/StarWars'' fighting game.

** The original game was supposed to be a licensed fighting game starring monsters from the Franchise/UniversalHorror franchise, but the deal fell through. The game's original premise can still be glimpsed in certain characters who were obviously modeled after Universal monsters (Demitri = Film/{{Dracula|1931}}, Jon Talbain = Film/{{The Wolfman|1941}}, Victor von Gerdenheim = [[Film/{{Frankenstein 1931}} Frankenstein's Monster]], Rikuo = [[Film/CreatureFromTheBlackLagoon The Creature from the Black Lagoon]], and so on).

* WhatCouldHaveBeen: There were plans for a fourth title in development for the CPS-III system. It is said that Vampire Ace (or Vampire Soldier as it's been called in some places) would have had the core gameplay of Vampire Savior with CPS-III fluid characters. The reasons for the cancellation are unknown.

* UnCanceled: Yoshinori Ono of ''VideoGame/StreetFighterIV'' fame is pushing to invoke this with the series. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q_skngJlTDg A teaser trailer was released affirming the possibility of it happening]], but he said it will only be greenlit as long as enough fan demand gets through to the higher-ups. This is part of the reason ''Darkstalkers Ressurrection'' was announced, though that only resulted in extremely poor sales and the teaser was never followed up on. As of [[https://www.destructoid.com/there-s-still-hope-for-a-new-darkstalkers-347008.phtml March 2016]], Ono is ''still'' trying to invoke this, and at the very least, [[http://www.capcom.co.jp/ir/english/news/html/e161205b.html Capcom has shown some interest in reviving their forgotten IPs]], bringing some hope for this series.

* ExecutiveMeddling: The creative teams at Creator/{{Capcom}} want to do a fourth one (Yoshinori Ono in particular is interested in making the project happen), but the suits won't let them, even despite A) the massive fan demand for one, and B) Capcom constantly including the series' characters in crossover games.

*** This came to a head when Capcom released ''Darkstalkers Resurrection'', effectively the arcade builds of ''Night Warriors'' and ''Vampire Savior'' with a minor use of HD graphics and no real unlockables. [[note]]The other games developed by IronGalaxyStudios were either games that had never released before in home versions or included several beneficial unlocks. Darkstalkers Resurrection only had a gallery mode.[[/note]]. To say the fandom was pissed when Capcom declared it's failure meant a full fourth game release was cancelled is understating it.

** Much of the cast from this series were considered for the roster of ''VideoGame/MarvelVsCapcom3'' (specific ones include Talbain and Donovan, the former being Ryota Niitsuma's personal choice for a fourth ''Darkstalkers'' character). Only Morrigan, Felicia, and Hsien-Ko were included in the final game, though at the very least Amaterasu got a Talbain-themed alternate costume and many of the characters appeared as cards in the ''Ultimate'' update's Heroes and Heralds mode.
