* CompleteMonster: Carmilla, the Blood Countess from the film ''Bloodlust'', was famed for [[TheCaligula her dark excesses]] when she lived, and was slain by [[EvenEvilHasStandards the Vampire King Dracula]] for her bloodlust and gluttony. However, Carmilla's ghost still haunts her old palace. She lures the [[StarCrossedLovers vampire Meier Link and his mortal lover Charlotte]] to her with promises of protection, only to use her illusions to separate them and [[HalfTheManHeUsedToBe slice Meier in half]] before feeding on Charlotte and using her blood to revive herself. When D himself and other vampire hunters enter her manor, Charlotte uses her illusions to MindRape them with visions of their pasts. She kills one hunter and turns him into a vampire so he'll kill D and the other hunter Leila, his own adopted sister. When she fights D himself, she tries to torture him out of fury that he, a {{Dhampyr}} himself, hunts her. Carmilla views herself as above any human being and when D bests her, she immediately tries to devour the rest of Charlotte's life, stopped only by the intervention of [[NotQuiteDead Meier]].

* TheyChangedItNowItSucks: Many fans of the Streamline dub have, predictably, staked the Sentai version to the ground from the start without giving it a fair chance.

* EscapistCharacter: D, an impossibly beautiful {{bishounen}} version.
* EvilIsSexy: The Nobility, not to mention Rei-Ginsei.

* BoringInvincibleHero: D tends to be this, sometimes veering into ShowyInvincibleHero depending on how [[PurpleProse purply]] the prose describes his actions. The Author knows this as novels rarely focus on D and instead focus on the human characters and D instead acts like a DeusExMachina for them to escape deadly situations.
* BoringInvincibleVillain: Vampires as a whole in the first book. One aspect that was thankfully discarded without a trace for later books: they've bred it into humanity that if any human discovers one of their weaknesses (like garlic), they'll automatically ''forget'' it - so humans can never get the upper hand.

* GrowingTheBeard: The First novel, quite frankly, actually sorta sucked. D is pretty much a GodModeSue and the plot is relatively straightforward. The next ones? Start to focus on world-building, remove some of the more blatant cheats the Nobles used, and it just works.

** Though the funny thing is the English version ISN'T a dub, but instead the original voiceover with the Japanese version being the dubbed one.

** It's been speculated by Toonami and Adult Swim fans that Cartoon Network's airing of Vampire Hunter D (along with RobotCarnival and TwilightOfTheCockroaches) was a test run for what would later become Toonami and Adult Swim. Ironically enough, in the blocks 10+ on-air history, Vampire Hunter D has yet to air.

* SuperlativeDubbing: Bloodlust garnered quite a bit of praise for its voiceovers originally recorded in English. While it doesn't get as much praise now as it did back then, the English dub has held up surprisingly well.
