** ''Kataritsugu Koto'' (''The Things I Pass Down''), the ending theme for the first series.



* DracoInLeatherPants: Diva, holy shit Diva. Both fanboys ''and'' fangirls give her far more sympathy than she deserves, given that while she might have a good FreudianExcuse, she is also incredibly ruthless and often needlesly cruel. [[spoiler: And a rapist/murderess who never shows any regret for raping and killing Riku.]] This is sometimes paired with them [[RonTheDeathEater villainizing and bashing Saya]], and more frequently with trying to excuse away Diva's evil deeds due to her DarkAndTroubledPast.

* CompressedAdaptation: The manga changes a lot from several characters. Saya is often a JerkAss, Hagi is more sensitive, Kai is more mature early but acts like a pervert towards Saya, Riku gets more screentime, David gets less screentime, Solomon is more like Amshel, etc. The plot and pacing also differ greatly from the anime. These changes make it look as if they were aiming to attract more male readers due to the bigger focus on bloody action scenes and added Fanservice.

* FandomRivalry: With ''Anime/BloodC'' fans (yes, there are fans) who regarded Saya Otonashi as weak and dependable to Haji and usually gets her ass kicked. Likewise, ''Blood +'' fans regarded Saya Kisaragi as pathetic and useless in saving lives and declared ''Blood-C'' as the worst in the franchise. It also has a rivalry with fans of the [[Anime/BloodTheLastVampire original OVA]], who looked down at both series as cheap knockoffs.

* NightmareFuelStationAttendant: Diva, '''and how'''. In addition to being [[spoiler: the polar opposite of all things Saya]], she's an AxCrazy PsychopathicManchild who seeks nothing but the total destruction of mankind. Her antics as an [[ImplacableMan Implacable Girl]] toward [[spoiler:Riku]] do not help matters at all.

* DesignatedHero: In the two manga series Saya comes across this. When she remembers her past she blames Hagi for abandoning her even though she chopped off his own arm. Saya's intention to kill everybody from her race are revealed earlier and Riku is simply told to deal with it. In both manga series, the climax has Saya brutally murdering an AntiVillain though at least in ''Adagio'', she regrets her actions.
