* EsotericHappyEnding: Yeah, Karin and Kenta have their happy ending, but, the vampires will likely [[spoiler: become extinct because all of the women, sans Calera, are infertile. Then again, Ren has a son by Bridget...]]
* MemeticMutation: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6dJ-C-1Hrw0 OH MY GAHHH! NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!]]
* {{Narm}}: Pretty much the entirety of the English dub of the animé, to the point where it's downright unwatchable for some viewers.
* NightmareFuel: Boogie, an already creepy-looking doll with a knife attached to his hand (holy shit!), can turn into a sanity-destroying monstrosity. [[http://www.mangareader.net/317-22209-52/karin/chapter-13.html With a knife.]] Yeah, [[CreepyDoll dolls are scary.]]
* TheWoobie: Karin is the black sheep of the family because of her ability to [[CursedWithAwesome give blood, stay in the sunlight, and eat human food]], and thus, she is one of the loneliest vampires. [[spoiler: When her little sister Anju becomes a full vampire, she realizes how alone she is as she cries as she makes breakfast for herself.]]
** Also, [[spoiler: you can't say you don't feel sorry for her when memories of her family is erased and she thinks of them to be dead after graduation.]]
** Yuriya Tachibana, who is [[spoiler: a half-vampire, half-human hybrid]]. After her father died, her mother struggled to raise her alone, and passed away from the stress. Her first biting victim was someone she loved back in junior high, and, as a result, she was forced to leave town. She is ostracized by the rest of the vampires because a [[spoiler: "half-breed"]] outed the existence of vampires to a human church a hundred years ago, and they were nearly wiped out, and they see her as a threat. Elda almost killed her until Karin intervened, and Bridget is especially nasty to her, calling her an "empty doll" and suggested that Yuriya ''kill herself'', but hasn't yet because she doesn't have the courage to do so. Her Uncle is the only person she can rely on.
