* TheyChangedItNowItSucks: Vampirella went through a fair number of different redesigns, some practical like the [[https://static.comicvine.com/uploads/original/2/25835/1466879-vampirellscrown001002rgb.jpg 2010]] and [[http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/crsikevueaaxyf4jpg_large.jpg 2016]] redesigns from Dynamite or others more spiker and edgier like a [[https://static.comicvine.com/uploads/original/1/15776/2018988-pantha164.jpg suit]] she wore briefly during the 90s. Whatever the case, these outfits never last very long and revert to the classic red bikini due to fan backlash. Although in the case of the most recent case instead of going back, it was changed to a slightly altered version for the 2017 relaunch.

* TearJerker: The Warren times story "The Night Willa Jane Gornley Went Home" is one of nuclear dimensions. The protagonist is a horrible disfigured child. Even her step parents, who are really good people, hesitate to touch her. She fantasizes she's an alien left on the wrong planet. And then one night an UFO lands, and out steps a dude who for the first time takes her into his arms without hesitation. [[spoiler: You guessed it, the dude is Death. Any resemblence to Andersens "Matchstick Girl" is purely coincidental.]]

* ValuesDissonance: Vampirella's iconic bathing suit was created by feminist comic artist Trina Robbins as an example of open female sexuality and lack of shame. It has since been criticized by many feminists for being overly sexualized.

** The Biblical Cain turns out to be one too. After having killed his brother, he was cursed with not only immortality, but his children would also be forced to kill one and other - he'd have a pair of twins, one dark-haired and the other blonde, and the blondes would usually kill their siblings. He witnessed this many, many times over the ages and was [[OutlivingOnesOffspring forced to bury countless of his children]].

* CompleteMonster: [[TheSociopath Von Kreist]] was once a Prussian soldier on the Western Front of UsefulNotes/WorldWarI who was equally fascinated and horrified by the mindless slaughter he witnessed. He later made a DealWithTheDevil for immortality, [[BeCarefulWhatYouWishFor only to find out]] that [[AgeWithoutYouth his body would continue to decay]] while [[BlessedWithSuck his soul could not pass on]]. He has since made himself a PsychoForHire for whatever vampire clan will provide him a fresh supply of victims while aiding their plans to reduce humanity to cattle, each time killing huge numbers of people in the process. He takes the two teenage daughters of a disobedient mafia boss hostage and [[SadisticChoice forces him to choose which of them will live]], then shoots the daughter the man chose so the surviving one will have to live with the knowledge of her father giving her a death sentence. Then he orders her to kill her father and turns the dead sister into a vampire before later [[SlashedThroat slashing the latter's throat]] when she has a flash of conscience. Von Kreist is also a prolific SerialKiller and SerialRapist on the side, with one of his victims shown [[AndIMustScream having her eyelids, mouth, and limbs stitched together]]. His quarry even [[WouldHurtAChild extends to children]], as he intentionally crashes a damaged plane into a children's playground and casually throws a child off a bridge while insisting to his men that [[CardCarryingVillain he's "rotten to the core" and "wouldn't have it any other way"]]. Initially destroyed, he is resurrected [[GrandTheftMe in the body of Sofia Murray]], one of Vampirella's closest friends, by a descendant of his who wanted to destroy Von Kreist's soul to [[TheAtoner atone for his crimes]]. After failing to kill his grandson, Von Kreist later offers up Sofia's life as part of a new alliance he forged with {{Dracula}}. As a human with no real superpowers of his own beyond his immortality, Von Kreist [[HumansAreTheRealMonsters doesn't even have the excuse of being born a monster]] and stands out as one of the vampiress Vampirella's most disgusting foes.

** For once this is no modern Harris invention. Warren sometimes played the trope too, e.g. with the Amazon Queen. It even has the local villain lampshading the event: "Great! Now I can kill her and her lesbian lover with just one bullet!" [[spoiler: Which promptly gets him eaten by a giant snake, since the times were liberal then.]]
