  • Bald of Evil: Complete with a Nazca-looking skull.
  • Barbie Doll Anatomy: It's not clear whether Incognito suffers from this, or he really is androgynous, as some have speculated.
  • BFG: a Grenade launcher.
  • Big Bad: 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.
  • Body Horror: He can summon a weapon from his arm.
  • Canon Foreigner
  • Combat Sadomasochist: 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.
  • Dragon-in-Chief: He has a master, although he is the most dangerous threat to Hellsing and once he's killed, his master is stated to have simply been found and silenced following his defeat.
  • Egyptian Mythology: He summons Set, the Egyptian God of Chaos, in the last episode.
  • Evil Counterpart
  • Evil Sounds Deep
  • Expy: He has a very similar vibe to the Major from the original, most notably:
    "I will destroy everything. I was born to bring ruin to all that is."
  • Eye Scream: The fact that he has no eyelid over his red left eye would indicate he's had one in his life.
  • Full-Frontal Assault: Although Barbie Doll Anatomy 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.
  • Gatling Good
  • Looks Like Orlok
  • Omnicidal Maniac
  • Scary Black Man: Considering he's implied to be from Africa, it's not much of a stretch.
  • That Came Out Wrong: Set will enter me. Made even worse by the aforementioned Barbie Doll Anatomy.
  • Undignified Death: Much like Vlad's historical victims, 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.
  • Worthy Opponent: For Alucard.

     Alexander Anderson

     Enrico Maxwell 

  • Beware the Nice Ones: 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 which is why he attacked and killed Helena in her home.
  • Bookworm: Her favorite hobby next to listening to classical music is reading books.
  • Canon Foreigner: Created for the anime.
  • Creepy Child: Very creepy.
  • Death Seeker: Like Alucard, she has grown tired of her immortality and desires to die, but also like him, she's not in any hurry. She gets her wish when Incognito attacks and eats her.
  • Friendly Neighborhood Vampire: Sort of, she likely still drinks blood to survive but she's seemingly not malicious or bloodthirsty just For the Evulz like most vampires. Since she poses no real threat to the public this is seemingly the reason Hellsing hasn't hunted her.
  • Nice Girl: 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.
  • Really 700 Years Old
  • Undead Child
