** In the comic ''The Lost Girl'', by Tim Seeley et al., taking place shortly after the first film, [[GreaterScopeVillain Agnes Underwood]] is a [[BitchInSheepsClothing seemingly-sweet]] [[EvilOldFolks old lady]] in Santa Carla, but is in fact the head vampire behind the Blood Belles and the secret mastermind of their operations. Agnes recruits the Blood Bells by preying on the needs of lost and lonely girls before turning them into vampires. With Agnes operating behind the scenes, the Blood Belles kill off the hunters of Santa Carla, including Grandpa Emerson, abduct and turn multiple [[WouldHurtAChild children]], and plot to awaken ancient vampires (Tlahuelpuchi) to conquer the world and bring about the age of vampires. Agnes also had Star placed in Santa Carla to infiltrate the Lost Boys to make a power play of her own. What makes Agnes worse is that all these things are a mere means to a [[EvilIsPetty petty]] and [[ItsAllAboutMe selfish end]]: for centuries Agnes sought the pure blood of the mother vampires to [[ImmortalityImmorality restore her youth. Agnes also takes Lucy Emerson and Laddie hostage under the threat of death, as well as kills and turns the residents and orderlies as a local retirement home. Besides having no loyalty to the Tlahuelpuchi, Agnes dismisses the deaths of the Blood Belles by simply saying [[WeHaveReserves she can make more]], and tries to force Star to test the pure blood to see if it will kill her or make her lose her humanity, calling it a win-win scenario.

* CompleteMonster: Peter from ''The Thirst'' is known publicly as the brother of vampire novelist Gwen Lieber but is secretly is the Alpha Vampire and her alleged lover. He is seemingly held hostage by DJ X, who used Peter's blood to make a drug to create vampires. However, once DJ X was killed, Peter took control of the consumers, nearly sending them into a feeding frenzy. Upon being revealed as the Alpha Vampire, we are treated to a flashback of him leading a vampire attack of a village. He offered Gwen a chance to become a vampire if she brings him Edgar and Alan Frog, and once she does the task, he kills her. He reveals that his true intentions all along were to turn Edgar and Alan into vampires themselves, so they can be his personal hitmen and cull the expanding vampire race, so there can be more people to feed on. Since Alan was already transforming, Peter uses his partial control over Alan to force him to fight Edgar.

* HilariousInHindsight: Take a look at the drying vampire gore on the heroes' clothes when they flee the hotel. It's strangely...[[Literature/{{Twilight}} sparkly]].
** [[TwentyFour Jack Bauer]] Playing a vampire was funny enough to think as it is, but then ''WesternAnimation/RobotChicken'' took it to the next level by having Dracula replace Jack Bauer as the lead.

* SeinfeldIsUnfunny: Given that it set the tone for ''Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer'' and ''TrueBlood'', viewers forget how different this was when it first came out.

* EnsembleDarkhorse: Tim Capello as the the oily saxophone player on the dock is surprisingly memorable among viewers of the film. [[https://www.facebook.com/greasysaxdude/ He even has a fan page!]]



* MemeticMutation: All the god damn vampires!

** There's also Sam and Michael apparently mesmerized by the oily saxophone player on the docks.

** The oily saxophone player, portrayed by Tim Capello, has become part of the basis for general sexy saxophone man jokes.

** A little TruthInTelevision here, as Schumacher is gay, and vampires were (and still are) commonly used to represent the AIDS crisis that was especially prominent among the gay community in the 80's. There's actually a few articles floating around on homoerotic subtext in the movie - you can read one [[{{www.horror-movies.ca/2014/09/new-perspective-lost-boys-homosexual-film/}} here]].
