** Inverted with Morrigan, of all people, and practically every other character except Felicia, who escaped unscathed.
** Demitri is a straight example, however, as he was made ''less'' scary. In the games and the ''Night Warriors: Darkstalkers' Revenge'' OVA, his entire mouth is full of sharp teeth. Here, he has teeth that are the norm for a vampire.
** Hsien-Ko has mechanical hands instead of the oversized claws at the end of her sleeves.[[note]]In the games, she ''does'' have real hands, as they are tucked inside her sleeves to hold said claws.[[/note]] As if that wasn't enough, the decision of to give Hsien-Ko a normal skin tone instead of her usual [[UndeathlyPallor undead blue skin tone]] makes her {{blush sticker}}s stand out much more than normal.

** Felicia completely averts this trope. She stays the same, except for larger fur patches.



*AdaptationalModesty: Morrigan and Felicia were covered up in order to show less skin than their video game counterparts. Felicia is even drawn with a red brooch of sorts to join her breast fur patches together.



* AdaptationalWimp: Pyron, who in this series seems to be a completely incompetent villain, especially compared with his video game counterpart. In "Aliens Keep Out", he even [[SaveTheVillain has to be saved]] from Huitzil. In general, every character is much weaker than its canon counterpart.
