* GrandTheftMe: Tchernobog reincarnates by allowing someone to kill his current form and then taking over the body of the one who killed him. His new form often influences the direction the Cabal takes, such as a monk turning it into a religious cult. Somehow, Caleb doing exactly this only manages to give him the god's powers without the whole reincarnation bit.
* TheGrimReaper: Phantasms, miniture Grim Reapers that are only vulnerable when they become corporeal. They often [[JumpScare startle players]] by ambushing them with their persistent screaming and creepy smile.
* GuideDangIt: There is only one Death Ray in the game, and it's ''very'' well-hidden. If you don't have a flashlight, you're not likely to find it without resorting to a guide.

bit (Tchernobog's plan was apparently to let Caleb kill enough of the cult that he would become powerful enough for Tchernobog to "throw open the door between the worlds and inherit the Earth"; presumably Caleb [[TooSpicyForYogSothoth became even more powerful than Tchernobog planned]]).
* TheGrimReaper: Phantasms, miniture miniature Grim Reapers that are only vulnerable when they become corporeal. They often [[JumpScare startle players]] by ambushing them with their persistent screaming and creepy smile.
* GuideDangIt: There is only one Death Ray in the second game, and it's ''very'' well-hidden. If you don't have a flashlight, you're not likely to find it without resorting to a guide.



* ALighterShadeOfBlack: There are no good guys. On one hand you have a cult trying to summon a dark god, murdering anyone they want to and experimenting on the rest. On the other side you have one of their failed projects, a sadistic revenant named Caleb who was one of those cultists and also is murdering anyone he feels like. At least Caleb is fighting to avenge his wife and best friend and has a sense of humor.

** LoveRedeems: Caleb is initially only fighting the Cabal in Blood 2 because they keep preventing him from killing Gideon. His priority shifts to rescuing Ophelia once he learns she's being held at [=CabalCo=]'s headquarters.

Gideon, and he doesn't give two shits about his status as the One That Binds following the death of Tchernobog.

* CampfireCharacterExploration: In Blood 2's expansion pack "The Nightmare Levels", on their way back to Earth from another dimension, the Chosen sit around a campfire and each one tells a story from his or her past. This leads to playing the four contained levels.

* KillItWithFire: Usually the best way to get rid of strong enemies like the Bloated Butcher. For that, ''Blood'' has the flare gun, the spray can and the napalm cannon. ''Blood II'' sees the return of all of these, with the exception of the spray can, which gets replaced by the Die Bug Die sprayer.
* KillItWithWater: Hellhounds gargoyles die instantly if submerged in any liquid.

** The Napalm Launcher is one that got shafted the hardest. In ''II'', it has a ''much'' slower firing rate in both modes, while the fireballs are much weaker (primary fire hurts less than a double shotgun blast - at least three shots are necessary to kill a basic enemy on Suicide difficulty), painfully slow, and don't set the target on fire. [[GoodBadBugs In early versions it was still worthy to keep around because each gas can filled ammo reserves to max no matter what]], so it was still a spammable option, but now, after the fix that changed them to give only 10 shots per can, it's at best inventory filler.

** DeathRay: As the name says, though it shoots {{hitscan}} {{Reflective Laser}}s. However, no one is gonna deny the "death" part, as its DPS easily rivals the assault rifle's.

** Caleb uses an aerosol can and a Zippo lighter as weapons in the first game, even though neither existed in the 1920's.

** Caleb uses an aerosol can and a Zippo lighter as weapons in the first game, even though neither existed in the 1920's. Neither did the jerry cans which the Napalm Launcher uses as ammo: they are a WWII era German invention, as their name implies.
