Added DiffLines:

* OlderThanTheyThink: Due to its much greater success, it's not so easy to find people who know that Alucard's combination of handgun, red coat and round yellow sunglasses is a direct homage to Vash The Stampede from ''Manga/{{Trigun}}'', a work which Hirano was a big fan of before writing ''Hellsing''. You can even read the words "Trigun Maximum" in Zorin Blitz's tattoos as another homage.

* 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 backgrounds are too strange for the context of ''Hellsing''.
* BrokenBase: Some fans love the TV series, some think it sucks. Points in favor of the series are that it fleshes out Seras a lot more as a character and explores the method by which the artificial vamps are made. Also the music. Points against it? Well, Incognito wasn't quite up to snuff compared to the manga-original villains.
* DeaderThanDisco: Much like with original 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 an abrupt GeckoEnding. Today, the Gonzo adaptation is mostly remembered for [[CrowningMusicOfAwesome its soundtrack]] (and to some its AlternateCharacterInterpretation of Seras as the viewpoint character), while ''Ultimate'' has achieved an iconic status.

* LoveItOrHateIt: The state of the Gonzo series nowadays. People hate it for being a failed adaptation with weak plots and uncharismatic original characters or love it for fleshing out Seras and featuring the unique style common to Chiaki Konaka's works.



* TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodPlot: Some fans believe the TV anime had some interesting ideas and takes on the story that were bogged down by writing and budget problems.

* 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.

to:

* {{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.

Added DiffLines:

* WTHCastingAgency: Tasio Alonso's casting and performance as Alucard in the Spanish dub are huge points of discussion in the country. His intensely gruff, raspy tone, completely different to Creator/JojiNakata's booming voice, is considered to be either a better choice for a character like him or a ridiculous source of narm.

** Most of the evil characters who die within the first five [=OVAs=] are this. Many of them have some really interesting power mixed with a really unique appearance. And many of them die simply because they aren't Alucard, Anderson, or Walter

** [[BigBad The Major]], the [[AxCrazy psychotic]] leader of the "Last Battalion" of the [[ThoseWackyNazis Nazi remnant Millennium]], is an unassuming, [[FourEyesZeroSoul bespectacled]], [[FauxAffablyEvil jovial]] [[FatBastard fat little man]] is defined by [[BloodKnight his love of war]] (despite [[NonActionBigBad not fighting himself]]). After surviving UsefulNotes/WorldWarII, The Major consolidated his forces in South America, where they awaited their chance for one final, glorious combat. Acting behind the scenes, the Major had multiple humans turned into vampires, having them slaughter innocent people to slowly reveal himself to Hellsing. Finally taking center stage, the Major launched an attack on London, obliterating everything he saw and having his men slaughter every living thing in sight, [[WouldHurtAChild including babies]]. The Major confesses there is no end goal; [[ForTheEvulz combat and war are their own end]]. The Major shows no hesitation in killing one of his own officers when he objects to the Major carelessly sacrificing their soldiers, and his ultimate goal is to die at the conclusion of his war, after having created one last great display of the carnage he so loves.

* 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's 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.]]
