* BlindIdiotTranslation: Overlaps with GratuitousGerman, as the German labels in the excavation site have been translated word-by-word, like "Die Pumpe Der Raum" ("The Pump The Room") standing at the entrance of a pump room.

** [[PlayerCharacter Rayne]], on the other hand plays this straight, despite being capable of some really violent {{gorn}} she never comes out with a drop of blood on her. Not even when [[GameplayAndStorylineSegregation she complains there is bowel in her hair]] after destroying a massive vampire boss from the inside out.

* [[DroppedaBridgeOnHim Dropped A Bridge On Her]]: [[spoiler:Ferril's death at the hand of Xerx. After giving a crazy rousing speech to her men earlier and a shorter angry one to Rayne, she is quickly dispatched by one of Xerx sun cannons just before the boss fight.]]

* GunsAreWorthless:
** Despite the wide variety of firearms available in the first game, guns are only really effective against common {{Mooks}}. Some tougher enemies and bosses take very little (if any) damage from bullets, or are difficult to hit in the first place (especially Daemites). Compounding this problem is the fact that guns don't hold much ammo and can't be reloaded; Rayne [[ThrowawayGuns discards a weapon upon emptying the magazine]], and must pick up another to replace it. On top of all this, Rayne's blades and harpoon are generally more efficient weapons, and it's entirely possible to play through most of the game without firing a shot.

* VideoGameCrueltyPotential: In the mines, you may notice a few doors have been barricaded from the inside with a few Nazis hiding in them. Rayne will actively taunt these poor fellows who are just hiding from the Daemites, even though they offer no resistance; in fact they are outright cowering. They are free health should you need it, but damn.[[note]]Then again, they are ''[[AcceptablePoliticalTargets Nazis]].''[[/note]] ''[=BloodRayne=] 2'', meanwhile, has many, many different ways you can dismember the human body.

* BadassBoast: [[{{Badass}} Half her quotes throughout the series]], but her boast to Hedrox is especially epic.

* FantasticRacism: Most of Rayne's family has this towards dhampirs and humans. Kagan refers to dhampirs as "mongrels", "tainted" and continually refers to Rayne as "it". [[{{Irony}} This doesn't stop him from raping human women]] [[{{Hypocrite}} and using his dhampir offspring in his army]]. Ferril believes that ''any'' full-blooded vampire should be able to best a dhampir, even if it's [[{{Badass}} Rayne]] and Ephemera expresses mild disappointment that their adversary isn't "at least full-blood".

* ShoutOut: Rayne's harpoon bares more than a few similarities to [[Franchise/MortalKombat Scorpion's]] spear, such as being a "[[Franchise/YuGiOh kunai with chain]]" that's given the name of a completely different throwing weapon, and the first game even has Rayne using it in a similar fashion to pull enemies closer.
** The rail-grinding in the second game is clearly inspired by Franchise/SonicTheHedgehog

* BeautyIsNeverTarnished: Female minions in the second game avert this trope really hard - most of them are very {{Stripperiffic}} and just as attractive as the lead, but they are prone to dismemberment as the male minions are.

* TheJoysOfTorturingMooks: Some of the finishers used to kill enemies while draining them often veers into ''Franchise/MortalKombat'' territory and certain puzzles in the second game can only be solved by using your harpoon to throw your enemies into deadly hazards.



* MadDoctor: Dr. Bathory. She really takes a shine to the Damites.

* DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything: The Carpathian Dragons are mystical guns powered by blood, and they attach themselves to Rayne by jamming tubes into her arms. Her cries of pain sound a bit... [[TheImmodestOrgasm orgasmic]]. Rayne herself [[LampshadeHanging hangs a lampshade on it]]:
-->'''Severin:''' (listening to her screams over the radio) Are you all right, Rayne?
-->'''Rayne:''' Yeah. It's just... the Dragons. They're ''so beautiful.''
