''Night Warriors: Darkstalkers' Revenge'' (known in Japan as ''Vampire Hunter: The Animated Series'') is a four-part OVA adaptation of the ''VideoGame/{{Darkstalkers}}'' video games, produced in 1997 by Creator/{{Madhouse}} and Creator/DRMovie.

The plot essentially follows that of its namesake video game: an alien demon known as Pyron invades Earth, while in the midst the vampire Demitri Maximoff and succubus Morrigan Aensland duke it out to see who's the strongest, Hsien-Ko and her sister Mei-Ling search for a way to free their mother's soul, Donovan Baine walks the earth fighting the forces of the dark with Anita by his side, and the long dormant Huitzil robots awaken and set their sights on exterminating humans and Darkstalkers alike.

The [=OVA=] was initially released in America on VHS and DVD by [[Creator/VizMedia Viz Video]] and [[Creator/{{Geneon}} Pioneer]], with an english dub by Creator/TheOceanGroup, before going out of print. It has since been licensed and rereleased on DVD by Creator/DiscotekMedia.

!!This [=OVA=] contains examples of:

* AdaptationalHeroism: One of the few instances where Lord Raptor is ''not'' portrayed as villainous (he saves Felicia from members of the church who tried to kill her), though even here he's an anti-hero at best.
* AnimatedAdaptation: The second one of ''Darkstalkers'', after the SoBadItsGood [[WesternAnimation/{{Darkstalkers}} american cartoon by Graz Entertainment]].
* BreakTheCutie: Anita cries twice through the series, once when Hsien-Ko and Mei-Ling go to fight Pyron, and again when [[spoiler:Pyron mortally wounds Donovan]].
* ConspicuousCG: A couple effects stand out in the fourth episode, such as Donovan's snowflake attack.
* DemotedToExtra: Anakaris, Rikuo, Sasquatch, and Victor are only given cameos in the final episode, [[spoiler:where they get [[CurbstompBattle annihilated]] by Pyron]].
** While not reduced to simply cameos, Lord Raptor and Jon Talbain are rather inconsequential to the plot, only showing up as {{One Scene Wonder}}s in the second and third episodes, respectively.
* FantasticRacism: Humans are shown to fear and despise the Darkstalkers. The same applies vice versa if Jon Talbain is any indication.
* HeelFaceTurn: Bishamon after his fight with Donovan.
* HumansAreFlawed: Humans are arguably shown at both their worst and their best. Many times the Darkstalkers are discriminated against by humans, but some humans are willing to help, such as the doctor who helps Felicia after her encounter with the Huitzil.
* HumongousMecha: [[spoiler:A giant Huitzil robot emerges in the fourth episode to do battle with Pyron, who grows large in return.]]
* MercyKill: A priest attempts to do this with Anita, since her powers result in other humans shunning her and he believes that death would be a better alternative than letter her live on in suffering. [[spoiler:In the end, he can't go through with it, and Anita instead goes with Donovan.]]
* OffModel: The Huitzil robots
* {{Stripperific}}: Morrigan and Felicia, as usual, with the former even sometimes wearing casual attire that fits this trope.
* VillainousBSOD: Hannya suffers this during the battle with Donovan, when the latter helps some humans who are about to fall off a cliff, as [[EvilCannotComprehendGood he cannot fathom why Donovan, who is half-Darkstalker, would bother helping humans at all]].
* WhenSheSmiles: Anita when [[spoiler:Donovan defeats Pyron]].
