[[folder: Alucard]]
->'''Voiced by:''' Creator/JojiNakata (JP), Creator/CrispinFreeman (EN), Tasio Alonso (SP)
* AdaptationalHeroism: He's considerably more noble than his manga incarnation -- he only turns Seras after explaining his entire plan to her, instead of shooting her first and then asking if she doesn't want to die afterwards; and his bond with Integra is much more voluntary on his part, submitting himself to her after she displays her courage rather than because of the blood pact with the Hellsing clan.
%%* {{Alucard}}
* BadassLongcoat: Like his manga counterpart, he has a red long coat, and combining this with his weapon of choice, along with his height, he's an imposing figure.
* BerserkButton: 'WHAT DID YOU DO?!' (episode 9).
* BreakTheHaughty: After episode 9 nearly gets Integra killed, he behaves far more thoughtful and considerate with her.
* {{Chiaroscuro}}: For some reason he's drawn this way, in the first episode it's atmosphericm making him mysterious. In the subsequent ones it's plain weird, fitting for a HumanoidAbomination.
* {{Dracula}}: In the final episode, there's a brief moment where Alucard's face resembles Vlad (III) Dracula's.
* EvilLaugh: Boy does he enjoys a good chuckle.
* HappinessInSlavery: Slight subversion, he's ''not'' so happy and seems SealedEvilInACan, but he hates the idea of losing Integra more (episode 9).
%%* TheHero
* HistoricalBeautyUpdate: Played straight and then subverted with his 'level one' appearance. Unlike the manga, his appearance as Vlad actually resembles his historical portraits.
* HoistByHisOwnPetard: He gets "killed" by trying to shoot Incognito with his Jackal. Afterwards, when he gets better, he uses Incognito's powers against him.
%%* HumanoidAbomination
* ILoveYouVampireSon: Some shades of this with Seras and the reason why he keeps offering Integra his blood.
* InSeriesNickname: Monster is the most frequent. There is also Literature/PeterPan, his codename.
%%* TheMasochismTango: With Integra.
* MeaningfulName: Do you really need it explained?
* MysteriousPast: Other than [[{{Dracula}} the shot of Vlad Tepes mentioned above]], it's never really said what or who Alucard is unlike the manga which explicitly shows events from his past.
* NobleDemon: The TV series cuts back on some of his KickTheDog moments and makes him downright paternal to Seras.
%%* OneWingedAngel: Level 1, his most powerful form.
%%* PoisonousFriend
* PsychopathicManchild: Type C, mostly, but with some type B in there - which matches [[{{Literature/Dracula}} the original novel's]] description of Dracula having a child mind.
* ProudWarriorRaceGuy: He's damn proud of being a True Undead. Integra occasionally taunts him, prickling his pride.
* TheReasonYouSuckSpeech: Gives a few to vampires he considers to be a disgrace to their species.
-->'''Alucard''': Children without faith... if you had any control you would travel as fog or as a bat. You've gone and taken all those lives, [[EvenEvilHasStandards and not even because you were thirsty.]] Is it fun? Is that what it takes for filth like you to get off? Cheap little two-bits terrors.[...] Eternity is wasted on the likes of you.
%%* RedOniBlueOni: Red.
* SingleTargetSexuality: He seems to have this toward Integra one way on another. He only changes Seras because she has Integra's eyes, and the news reporter that he bites midway through the series has Integra's coloring.
* UndyingLoyalty: Less of it than the Manga, but he will serve his master.

[[folder: Seras]]
->'''Voiced by:''' Creator/FumikoOrikasa (JP), K.T. Gray (EN), Creator/CarmenAmbros (SP)
* AdaptationDyeJob: Her hair is much more yellowish in the manga and OVA, but she's a strawberry blonde in the anime.
* AudienceSurrogate: She questions a lot about the methods of the Hellsing organization and the nature of the setting.
%%* BettyAndVeronica
* {{BFG}}: The anti-tank rifle, Harkonnen. It wouldn't be Seras without it!
%%* BreakTheCutie
* {{Chickification}}: Compared to her Manga counterpart, this Seras is smarter, but not as asskicking (most likely because the anime didn't adapt material past Volume 2) and gets too many DistressedDamsel instances (like in episode 3, where it only took one of Anderson's bayonet to knock her out).
* DaddysGirl: With a MissingMom, she seems to be abnormally attached to her father, unlike [[ConvenientlyAnOrphan her manga counterpart]].
* DayWalkingVampire: Seras seems to have to wear hats and sunglasses, but it seen outdoors in light a few times, though those times it was a bit cloudy.
* [[DoesNotKnowHisOwnStrength Does Not Know Her Own Strength]]: She has a humorous learning experience with this in the second episode. At the firing range, one of the Hellsing soldiers suggests that the [[{{BFG}} massive 13.7mm Anti-Midians rifle]] might suit her better. Seras protests that she wouldn't even be able to lift it, only to yank it clean out of the guy's hands one-handed when she tries, leading to this conversation:
-->'''Seras:''' That's strange. What's it made of, is it plastic?
-->'''Soldier:''' It weighs in at 15 kilos, plus a couple more for ammo.
-->'''Seras:''' *Shaking the gun up-and-down with one hand* It's really that heavy?
* FriendlyNeighborhoodVampire: She's pretty friendly, albeit she becomes very serious halfway through, she's still a good person, er, vampire.
* HappinessInSlavery: She refuses Alucard's offer when he wanted to give Seras her freedom.
%%* IAmWhatIAm
* IconicOutfit: It's not manga canon, but Seras looks good in blue.
* InSeriesNickname: Kitten, Police Girl, Tiger Lily (in reference to Literature/PeterPan).
* GreenEyedMonster: Her reaction when the relationship between Alucard and Integra softens in the last episodes.
* MissingMom: No picture of her at all.
* MoralityPet: She is this to Alucard.
* MsFanservice: UpToEleven from her Manga version (who never wore a revealing outfit other than her Hellsing uniform).
* TheNoseKnows: In addition to the [[SuperSenses "third eye"]] ability seen in the manga, Seras also has an enhanced sense of smell as a vampire. She uses it to [[spoiler: detect a bomb]] in the 5th episode.
* RedEyesTakeWarning: Subverted, as she's a FriendlyNeighborhoodVampire. But a vampire nonetheless.
%%* RedOniBlueOni: Blue.
* ReplacementGoldfish: She might have been intended to be this. According to [[WordOfGod Studio Gonzo]], Alucard turned her because her eyes reminded him of Young Integra's.
%%* RookieRedRanger
%%* TheSquadette
* VampireDetective: She journeys into this trope in some of the filler arcs.
%%* VegetarianVampire
* WhatHaveIBecome: She struggles with losing her humanity, but accepts her vampiric nature much earlier than in the manga, drinking medical blood in the fourth episode.
** The Anime makes a serious emphasis on this, while the manga was barely referred over it or it was PlayedForLaughs with Seras' making comical reactions, and {{Fanservice}} when she finally licked Integra's finger.
%%* ZettaiRyouiki:

[[folder: Integra]]
->'''Voiced by:''' Creator/YoshikoSakakibara (adult) / Creator/KaoriMizuhashi (young) (JP), Victoria Harwood (adult) / Creator/LauraBailey (young) (EN), María Rosa Guillén (adult and young, SP)
%%* AttemptedRape: Victim of ''three'' of them.
* AmbiguouslyBrown: Her mother is shown wearing a sari, implying Indian heritage.
* BerserkButton: Anything that humiliates and stains her Organization and soldiers. She'll avenge a ''thousandfold''. Especially traitors.
%%* BettyAndVeronica
%%* BreakTheCutie: Poor, poor young Integra...
%%* BreakTheHaughty: What happened from episode 9 and towards the end.
%%* CryCute: Episode 10.
* DaddysGirl: Unlike her manga counterpart (who occasionally remembers her father but mostly when Alucard triggers some memory and doesn't keep even a picture of him), in the Anime Integra seemed to love and dearly miss him (keeping his portrait in her office), but also resent his shadow.
%%* DarkSkinnedBlond
* GreenEyedMonster: Her reaction to Alucard turning Seras for the first episodes. He seemed to be aware of this, giving her a knowing smirk.
* GodSaveUsFromTheQueen: Integra thinks this way when she announces to Walter that Her Majesty has abandoned them at the end of the series.
* HeirClubForMen: The anime plays up the bureaucratic stress on Integra caused by her peers.
* HiddenBuxom: Carrying from the beginning of manga, her breasts are HUGE... This'd be fanservice if it wasn't due the fact that she was stabbed in the gut moments later. Somewhat of TruthInTelevision, her underage version of her also had them, while in the manga didn't.
* HonorBeforeReason: Subversion. The ending of episode 9 seems to fit this trope way, but actually she stabbed her neck not to choose death over being tainted by vampire's blood but to ''fight for her life''. Otherwise she would have become a mindless ''ghoul''.
%%* IHaveYouNowMyPretty: In episode 9 and 13.
* ImprobableAimingSkills: She is able to shoot the shape of a cross onto a vampire's face; this kind of accuracy is nearly impossible in RealLife.
* InSeriesNickname: Lady of Steel (in supplement material), Virgin of the Royal Protestant Order, Protestant Swine ([[ChurchMilitant Maxwell]]'s nickname for her), Wendy (to continue the Literature/PeterPan parallels codenames).
%%* ItsAllMyFault
%%* KnightTemplar
%%* LargeHam
%%* {{Meganekko}}
* MissingMom: There is a picture of her holding baby Integra, and a scene that could imply that she committed suicide.
* NotSoDifferent: To Alucard, she even acknowledges this in episode 4. "Your world is ''my'' world."
* SayMyName: "Acknowledge my approval! '''ALUCAAAAARRRD!'''"
* SharpDressedWoman: As "Sir" Integra, she wears a stylish suit.
%%* SugarAndIcePersonality
%%* TheMasochismTango with Alucard.
* TheUnReveal: Will she take Alucard's blood? [[spoiler: She only smirks as an answer as the blood drips down.]]
* VirginPower: Still a virgin here and apparently her blood is super delicious to vampires, and leads to her almost becoming a VirginSacrifice to open the gate of Hell.
%%* TheWomanWearingTheQueenlyMask

[[folder: Walter]]
->'''Voiced by:''' Motomu Kiyokawa (JP), Ralph Lister (EN), Mario Gargallo (SP)
* AdaptationalHeroism: [[spoiler:Doesn't turn traitor like in the manga, if only because [[OvertookTheManga the manga hadn't gotten that far yet]]]].
%%* BadassGrandpa
%%* BattleButler
%%* CasualDangerDialogue
* DissonantSerenity: He has the ability to stay calm in ''any'' situation.
%%* FlashStep
%%* HeroicSacrifice: But he lives through it.
* PoliticallyIncorrectHero: He's not thrilled about Integra recruiting "atheists and heathens" into Hellsing's ranks to rebuild its numbers after the Valentine Bros. arc.
%%* RazorFloss
%%* UndyingLoyalty

[[folder: Incognito]]
->'''Voiced by:''' Creator/TakumiNakazaki (JP), Isaac Charles Singleton, Jr. (EN), Ignacio J. Latorre (SP)
* BaldOfEvil: Complete with a Nazca-looking skull.
* BarbieDollAnatomy: It's not clear whether Incognito suffers from this, or he really is androgynous, as some have speculated.
* {{BFG}}: a Grenade launcher.
* BigBad: Although he does have a superior, he is the highest ranking member of the organization producing the Freak vampires seen in the show and organizes said vampires to fight Hellsing.
* BodyHorror: He can summon a weapon from his arm.
* CanonForeigner: Incognito didn't exist in the original manga.
* CombatSadomasochist: Both sadistic and masochistic. In one scene he says that he lives for nothing but destruction and in another, after being wounded by Alucard, exclaims about his love of pain.
* DragonInChief: He has a master, although he is the most dangerous threat to Hellsing and once [[spoiler:he's killed, his master is stated to have simply been found and silenced following his defeat.]]
* Myth/EgyptianMythology: [[spoiler: He summons Set, the Egyptian God of Chaos, in the last episode.]]
* EvilCounterpart: To Alucard, ancient vampires of great power, serving a greater God.
%%* EvilSoundsDeep
* {{Expy}}: He has a very similar vibe to the Major from the original, most notably:
--> "[[OmnicidalManiac I will destroy everything. I was born to bring ruin to all that is]]."
* EyeScream: The fact that he has no eyelid over his red left eye would indicate he's had one in his life.
* FullFrontalAssault: Although BarbieDollAnatomy provides a form of censorship, he only wears a coat briefly and all of his fights take place with him completely naked, emphasizing his deranged mentality.
%%* GatlingGood
%%* LooksLikeOrlok
%%* OmnicidalManiac
* ScaryBlackMan: Considering he's implied to be from Africa, it's not much of a stretch.
* ThatCameOutWrong: [[spoiler: Set]] will enter me. Made even worse by the aforementioned BarbieDollAnatomy.
* UndignifiedDeath: Much like Vlad's historical victims, [[spoiler:Incognito's body is left with a spear going up his ass and coming out his mouth]], though, given his sadomasochistic tendencies, this might not have been overly upsetting for him.
%%* WorthyOpponent: For Alucard.

[[folder: Alexander Anderson]]
->'''Voiced by:''' Creator/NaichiNozawa (JP), Steven Brand (EN), unknown (SP)
* AdaptationalPersonalityChange: In this version, he is more restrained and soft-spoken than his screaming OVA self.
%%* AntiVillain
%%* BadassPreacher
%%* DarkSkinnedBlonde
* DualWielding: He loves doing this with his bayonets.
* DemotedToExtra: He's nowhere near as important in the TV series as he is in the manga and OVA.
* TheGiant: He literally towers over Hellsing's RedShirts and has to stoop down to go through subway train cars.
* InSeriesNickname: Sword Dancer, Vatican's Dog, Captain Hook, Judas Priest (by Alucard).
* WorthyOpponent: Averted. Unlike his manga counterpart, he's not this to Alucard in the Anime.

[[folder: Enrico Maxwell]]
->'''Voiced by:''' Creator/HideyukiTanaka (JP), Creator/JBBlanc (EN), Óscar Redondo (SP)
%%* BitchInSheepsClothing
%%* DemotedToExtra
* InSeriesNickname: Catholic swine (courtesy of Integra).
%%* SmugSnake

[[folder: Helena]]
->'''Voiced by:''' Creator/AkikoHiramatsu (JP), Akure Wall (EN), Eva Ordeig (SP)
* BewareTheNiceOnes: She's mellow and friendly but that doesn't mean she isn't a powerful vampire, being a ''true'' vampire like Alucard, Incognito knew she could be a threat to his plans [[spoiler:which is why he attacked and killed Helena in her home]].
* {{Bookworm}}: Her favorite hobby next to listening to classical music is reading books.
* CanonForeigner: Created for the anime.
* CreepyChild: ''Very'' creepy, at least in looks, see the picture.
* DeathSeeker: Like Alucard, she has grown tired of her immortality and desires to die, but also like him, she's not in any hurry. [[spoiler:She gets her wish when Incognito attacks and ''eats'' her.]]
* FriendlyNeighborhoodVampire: Sort of, she likely still drinks blood to survive but she's seemingly not malicious or bloodthirsty just ForTheEvulz like most vampires. Since she poses no real threat to the public this is seemingly the reason Hellsing hasn't hunted her.
* NeverGrewUp: See below.
* NiceGirl: Surprisingly yes, she doesn't like to be disturbed in her home but she is warm and polite to people who respect her. Especially Seras.
* ReallySevenHundredYearsOld: Just like Alucard and Incognito.
* UndeadChild: She was made a vampire when she was still around 7-10.
* YouGottaHaveBlueHair: [[spoiler:When she dies, we're shown clearly her pale complexion and blue hair, unlike the photo in here.)]]
