* EyeScream: When Rayne finds the Eye of Beliar and it forcibly implants itself in her head. Sure, it gives her telescoping vision, but it looks like it ''really' hurt.

* GettingCrapPastTheRadar: The latest game in the series, ''[=BloodRayne=]: Betrayal'' is a 2D hack-and-slash that's quite frankly BloodierAndGorier than the first two games. Blood splatters everywhere, mooks are grinded up by blades, [[OffWithHisHead beheaded]], cut in half or worse. And it's a '''T-rated''' game.

* 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 anyway, and it's entirely possible to play through most of the game without firing a shot.
** In ''Betrayal'' however, Rayne's Magnum is actually quite powerful, able to knock most mooks off their feet.

* NoOntologicalInertia: A funny subversion at the end of ''[=BloodRayne=] 2''. [[spoiler:After Rayne defeats the final boss, she observes that his primary work, an alchemical cloud covering the land that allows vampires to walk under the sun, has not dissipated. Rayne remarks off-handedly to her partner, “I half-expected everything to go back to normal once he was dead. I guess that wasn’t very realistic, huh?”]]
