* WhatTheHellCastingAgency: Talisa Soto as Vampirella in the 1996 AshCanCopy. Not that she isn't beautiful, she just wasn't right for the role. The director later said that he tried to get the statuesque Julie Strain, but was overruled. And in Soto's defense, the material she had to work with was pretty bad to begin with.



** 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]].

** The 1996 movie is also full of this. The vampire villains in particular just look and sound silly when they're presumably supposed to be threatening.

** Sofia Murray and Vampirella had quite a bit in the 2010 series.

** Sofia Murray and Vampirella had quite a bit in the 2010 series. She had an asshole ex-boyfriend, but it's implied that she's bisexual. Nothing really happens between her and Vampi, but all the longing glances hint that it's more than just friendship.

* EvilIsSexy: No, not Vampirella herself, since she's a FriendlyNeighborhoodVampire. However, a number of her foes such as Dracula, the Blood Red Queen of Hearts, and even her mother Lilith at times are very seductive characters who, especially in the case of the women, are usually as [[{{Stripperiffic}} underdressed]] as the main character.

* BrokenBase: Vampirella's 2016 outfit has been called out by many fans for not being sexy enough while others point out a skintight roller derby outfit with a leather jacket is FetishFuel by itself. Vampirella #0, released in 2017, has ditched the new outfit in favor of a modified version of her old one.

* {{Narm}}: The character of Lukas Van Helsing who appears as Vampirella and Adam Van Helsing's adult son in Hell, the circumstances of his conception are never explained, and then he disappears without a trace. Made worse by the incredibly bizarre time travel shenanigans of that story arc.

* 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.

** Virtually all of Vampirella's female foes tend to have this with her from Le Fanu to Slade.

* 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.]]

** Dixie Fattoni.

She gets kidnapped a lot, even molested by a vampirized Pixie and its revealed that [[spoiler:in one BadFuture, she sees Earth being taken over by vampires]].
