Awesome: Blade

The comics

  • Blade once blew up a S.H.I.E.L.D. helicarrier worth ninety billion dollars (well before Spider-Man did it) to clean out vamps.
  • His eventual reaction when chained up and expected to "chow down" on an innocent girl:
    Blade: Did you know a wolf will bite off its own paw to get out of a trap?
  • Blade set off a huge explosion in a building to destroy an enemy. Thing is, Blade was inside too.
    Blade: I hurt in places I never knew I had. But it's worth it all to hear you scream!
  • From Mighty Avengers: The Deathwalkers, which are snake ninja creatures, have blown up Blade's safe house. He jumped out the burning building and this is their reaction. "Daywalker. Deathwalkers. That's gonna get real real fast. Keep it simple. Say my name".

The movies

  • The blood rave in the beginning of the first film is one of the best remembered scenes of the series. Vampires lure unsuspecting humans to an underground rave, then pipe blood through the fire sprinklers and devour the humans... until Blade steps in and slaughters them. The vampires' reaction to Blade's appearance is a major character establishing moment.
    • Nothing quite tops his busting up a Vampire rave at the start of the first film. That my friends is how you make an entrance.
    • To put this into perspective, Blade on his lonesome, faced against dozens, if not even in excess of a hundred bloodthirsty vampires, his mere presence puts so much fear into the crowd that most of them flee in terror.
    • To the extent that reviews for the movie are basically say: 'it's okay but it never gets better than its opening scene'
  • "You. Do Not. Know. Who. You. Are. FUCKING. WITH!"
  • "Can you blush?" Bad idea.
  • In the third film, Drake asks Blade if he's ready. Blade responds, "I was born ready, mother fucker." Duh.
  • It's a bit too long to be the subject of Memetic Mutation, but in the first film: "Some motherfuckers are always tryin' to ice skate uphill." BAM!
  • Blade Trinity might be the black sheep of the trilogy, but Hannibal King's interrogation scene alone makes the movie worth a watch.
    Hannibal: See, that tickle you're feeling in the back of your throats right now? That's atomized colloidal silver. It's being pumped through the building's air conditioning system, you cock-juggling THUNDERCUNT!
  • And minutes later, after King disposes of a vampire Pomeranian by means of letting it run off a tall building...
    Jarko Grimwood: Hey dickface. You seen my dog?
    Hannibal: Have you tried the lobby?
  • In the third movie:
    Vreede: I can't tell you. They-they'll kill me.
    Blade: Kill you? Motherfucker, I'll kill you! I'll just enjoy it better.
  • How was the first Blade's Sequel Hook not yet been mention?
    Blade: [in Moscow, speaking Russian] Catch you at a bad time... comrade?
  • In the third movie, the little girl tells Drake off after telling her a reason she should be afraid to die.
    "My friends will kill you."
  • Love or hate Blade II, and love or hate Scud, the reveal of him being The Mole was awesome.

Blade The Series

  • Detective Brian Boone has just woken up after being turned into a vampire and finds he's trapped in a body bag of very tough plastic that he can't break. How does he escape? He pulls one of his fangs out of his mouth and saws through the bag!
  • Detective Collins using himself as live bait for the vamps so Blade can get Charlotte. He even takes out two vamps with a grenade.
