The situation is complicated by the fact that Lucy isn't a fighter: her role on her vampire hunting team is TheBait. She lures vampire into traps so her teammates can slay them. So she can't confront the vampire directly and instead needs to be creative.

* DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything: During the sequence where Lucy is seducing the vampire, the way that Lucy analyzes the vampire's attempts to get her alone sounds an awful lot like a description of how many Pick-Up Artists operate.



* {{Earn Your Happy Ending}}s

to:

* {{Earn Your Happy Ending}}sEarnYourHappyEnding: You have to put considerable effort into getting an ending where you actually kill the vampire, which is the best ending as he won't attack anyone else. It's much easier to just chase him out of the restaurant.

* MustBeInvited: One of many weaknesses the vampire has. Public places like the McDonalds have an open invitation to anyone, which is how the vampire got in in the first place. [[spoiler: There is a way to get the cashier to revoke the implied-by-default invitation.]]

Added DiffLines:

** In ''16 More Ways'', one of the options for killing a vampire is locking it inside a walk-in freezer and letting it starve. If this option is taken, then after the team locks the vampire in, they put a sign on the door that says "DO NOT ENTER. DEAD INSIDE". In an aside, Lucy admits that they're all [[Series/TheWakingDead Walking Dead fans]]. Then they drill off the door handle, because that's more effective.
