* ExecutiveMeddling: Executives originally wanted to cast VinDiesel as Hellboy and make him a human who can transform into a demon, a la TheIncredibleHulk. Putting aside the fact that this would most likely have gotten them sued by Marvel Comics, del Toro and Mignola did not like this, and they had both independently decided that Creator/RonPerlman was the only casting choice for the part that either of them would support. Hellboy remained a big red guy in a coat, and Perlman was cast. The film took a significant budget cut as a result, though given del Toro's talented directing, it's hard to tell- although it also meant the advertising budget was almost nothing, and since the film was released when ''Passion Of The Christ'' came out and many theaters refused to show the film due to that fact, as well as having the word "Hell" in the title, having no ad budget REALLY hurt this movie.

* ChannelHop: A rare film example; switched from Sony Pictures to Universal. This was due to Revolution, who produced the first film and had an exclusive deal with Sony, had folded.

* WritingByTheSeatOfYourPants: Mignola plots the series ''years'' in advance, but he did change his plans for ''Hellboy In Hell'' which was originally intended to run at its own pace indefinitely. But after [[spoiler: Hellboy killed Satan]] too many dominos were pushed over and he decided to go for a GrandFinale with issue ten instead.

* ExiledFromContinuity: The appearance of the Torch of Liberty in the first miniseries is still ''canon'', but since the character is created and owned by John Byrne, who scripted the original miniseries, he has never reappeared outside of Hellboy's "family photo".

** In the [[AMinorKidtroduction Minor Kidtroduction]] of the first film, Baby Hellboy was going to be an animatronic, but they didn't like how it looked, so they went with CG instead.

* AwesomeDearBoy: Ron Perlman signed up because he loved the idea of doing a BeastAndBeauty love story [[ActorAllusion again]], and he would get to kiss a beautiful woman half his age in the process.

* TheOtherDarrin: In ''The Golden Army'', Abe is now voiced by his actor, Doug Jones, rather than David Hyde Pierce. Pierce felt Jones' performance was strong enough that there was simply no ''need'' to hire a separate voice actor. The difference was practically unnoticeable, since Pierce had only been cast in the first place [[ExecutiveMeddling because some executives thought Jones wasn't a big enough "name"]], and he'd been mimicking Jones' performance anyway.
* RealLifeRelative: Blake Perlman (Ron's daughter) can be seen in the sequel as the reporter in the gray sweater interviewing Hellboy outside the auction house.
