** And finally, Millennium. [[WeAreEverywhere They have infiltrated the British military]], and can transform anyone into a vampire; that means that if you're a soldier, anyone from your commanding officer to your best friend could be a horrifying killing machine just waiting a command from a guy who makes Colonel Kilgore look like a pacifist. Going FromBadToWorse, they can monitor the transformed and burn them alive if necessary to preserve their secrets and have a sniper who can shoot down jet fighters with an antique musket, a MasterOfIllusion, a werewolf and a catboy who cannot die and can go anywhere with no restrictions.

* FunnyAneurysmMoment: Seras' embarrassment over Alucard asking if she's a virgin and comedic overreactions to Captain Bernadotte’s and the [[RagTagBunchOfMisfits Wild Geese’s]] "Sexual Harassment" can become a lot less funny when it's revealed [[spoiler:Seras' mother was killed and then raped right in front of her when she was a small child. She freaks out about sex due to childhood trauma.]]

** Seras is surprisingly adorable when she's not in badass mode. Surprisingly [[SubvertedTrope subverted]] [[{{Tomboy}} when she was younger]], though.

*** The Major never crossed the MoralEventHorizon, he was on the asshole side all the time and his atrocities on-screen just drove him deeper into [[CompleteMonster Irredeemable Motherfucker County]].
** If Zorin slaughtering the Wild Geese wasn't enough, she manages to cross it AGAIN with her MindRape of Seras with memories of her NightmareFuel past traumas and [[spoiler:killing Pip.]] She paid for it though, [[KarmicDeath dear god]] [[KickTheSonOfABitch did she pay]].

* TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodPlot: Some readers felt this way about the revelation that the artificial vampires were made from [[spoiler:Mina Harker]]. It was ripe for exploration given how monumental [[spoiler:she]] was in Alucard's past and the formation of the Hellsing Organization, yet it's discovered near the ''very end'' of the series [[spoiler:after Alucard is gone]], ''very'' briefly and vaguely exposited on (raising more questions than it answered), then [[StuffBlowingUp destroyed]] [[ThingsManWasNotMeantToKnow to uphold the masquerade]].

** Badass as Anderson could be while using his weapons, when the camera zooms on his hands while wielding them it makes them look an unfortunate lot like palette knifes due to the crooked shape of the blade near the handle.



* BaseBreakingCharacter: Incognito, the BigBad. Some consider it a genuinely, otherwordly scary villain, specially when compared to the more mundane antagonists from Millennium, while others believe he is bland fellow who fails at making any impact and whose character and background are too weird for the context of ''Hellsing''.
* DeaderThanDisco: Much like with the original ''Anime/FullmetalAlchemist'' 2003 series, the original ''Hellsing'' adaptation from Gonzo underwent something similar against the later ''Hellsing Ultimate''. The original was [[GermansLoveDavidHasselhoff an underground phenomenon in America]], praised for its excellent dub, interesting take on vampires, and badass fight scenes. Then ''Ultimate'' came along, got the dub voice cast back, explored the mythology, and [[BloodierAndGorier took the fight scenes]] UpToEleven. It also increased interest in the original manga, and then people realized just how much [[OvertookTheManga the Gonzo series had overtaken it]]. Cue people picking it apart for the usual Gonzo sins, including [[OffModel cheap animation]] and a divisive GeckoEnding. Today, while the Gonzo adaptation is still remembered for [[CrowningMusicOfAwesome its soundtrack]] as well as other traits (see Love Ir Or Hate Ir below), ''Ultimate'' has achieved an iconic status.

* {{Narm}}: The redesign of Anderson's bayonets. Badass as he could be while using his weapons, the animation style makes them look an unfortunate lot like palette knifes.



* TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodCharacter: Anderson was very well profiled as a fearsome antagonist who could laugh at Alucard's face, but his apparitions amount to one episode and some random scenes which barely exploit him as a character. For instance, there's some hints in briefest moments of a single flashback that implies Anderson didn't willingly become a regenerator, but it's never expounded upon.

* LoveItOrHateIt: The state of the Gonzo series nowadays. People hate it for being having weak plots and uncharismatic original characters or love it for fleshing out Seras and featuring the unique style common to Chiaki Konaka's works.
* {{Narm}}: The redesign of Anderson's bayonets. Badass as he could be while using them, the animation style makes his weapons look an unfortunate lot like palette knifes.
* TheyChangedItNowItSucks: Why some ''Hellsing'' fans dislike the TV series. It goes both ways, since some fans who saw the TV series first prefer it to the manga and OVA.
* TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodPlot: Some fans believe the anime had some interesting ideas and takes on the story that were bogged down by writing and budget problems. For example, there's some hints in briefest moments of a single flashback that implies Anderson didn't willingly become a regenerator, but it's never expounded upon.

* NarmCharm: The fact that Anderson was given elongated fangs in his character design can be somewhat ridiculous, as it shows the producers apparently thought nobody was going to buy him as a credible rival to Alucard if he didn't look like another vampire. However, the trait actually manages to give him an even more feral look, especially in fighting scenes, something the manga and ''Ultimate'' series eschewed in favor of a goofier personality.

OVA. Many of the strong points of the series are esthetic in nature; fans believe typically agree Anderson's cloud of bible pages appearing in neatly arranged rows instead of the anime had random flutter seen in ''Ultimate'' looks much more badass, as well as Alucard's face being more visible and expressive than in the OVA series.
