* OurVampiresAreDifferent: They are very standard vampires, as super-strong and super-fast undead beings with sharp features like PointyEars and FemmeFatalons. They can be killed by decapitation, stabbing through the heart, or the use of holy weapons; while sunlight and running water are said to be unpleasant to them -- though the vampires themselves [[DiscussedTrope aren't entirely sure about the running water]]. Some might display other powers like teleportation, shape-shifting, telekinesis, or elemental manipulation to name a few. It's possible for them to interbreed with humans, and [[{{Dhampyr}} their hybrid children]] will be significantly more powerful since they have all their abilities, but none of their weaknesses. They also look significantly more human-like than their vampire parents, lacking the sharp nails and ears, and shedding normal tears instead of TearsOfBlood.
** Vampires are usually said to be unable to stomach human food or drink, or at the very least find it bitter, but Dracula keeps wine in his castle and Godbrand loves beer. In the third season, Lenore explains that, while vampires can only receive nutritional sustenance from blood, they can and do enjoy fruit and meat. Alucard implies that he can drink blood, but is never shown feeding and survives in his castle on fresh fish and vegetables with no apparent malnourishment. His mixed blood may make him capable of surviving off of either diet.

** Oddly enough so far, it's never been shown how exactly a human can be transformed into a vampire; when vampires bite people to feed on their blood, they just simply die instead of turning.

* GoodPeopleHaveGoodSex: The only intimate scenes in season 3 that don't slowly descend into FanDisservice are the ones between [[spoiler:Trevor and Sypha, those scenes instead devoted to showing their close bond. However, those scenes are ''also'' post-coitus. The scenes that actually show sexual acts immediately end with one party being horribly betrayed at the end of it.]]

Added DiffLines:

* FighterMageThief: Alucard, Sypha, and Trevor, respectively. Alucard is the strongest and most straightforward fighter of the group, Sypha is a skilled Speaker Magician, and Trevor, as the group's BadassNormal, uses more finesse and tactics in combat.


* HeroAntagonist: Alucard duels with Trevor after being discovered in the catacombs. Trevor figures out Alucard is a vampire, and that his resting place sharing resemblances to Dracula's castle, leading Trevor to one conclusion that [[PoorCommunicationKills Alucard purposely doesn't correct, right away]]. However, Alucard's only there in the first place to recover from injuries sustained when he tried to stop Dracula from unleashing his demonic army. When his duel with Trevor reaches a draw, he agrees to help Trevor and Sypha to fight Dracula.

** On a smaller note, the City Guards of Tunis and Genoa, who for oblivious reasons, oppose Isaac for bringing a demonic army into their towns.


* ItWillNeverCatchOn: The Judge scoffs at the idea of toilet paper during season 3, something that wouldn't see wide use in the western world for several hundred years after the 15th century.

** Sala scoffs at the idea of public toilets when Saint-Germain claims to be looking for a place inside his priory to urinate. Restrooms are now a common feature of nearly every building.


* StealthInsult: Saint-Germain has a short conversation with Sypha, where he asks if she is going to spend the day doing "typical Speaker activities," which he explains as meaning "reading, talking too much and casually reproducing." Saint-Germain just called all of the Speakers sluts in the fanciest way possible.

Added DiffLines:

* BetterThanSex: In Season 3, Trevor is offered a free mug of beer as a reward by the local brewer for having slain a night creature. When Trevor describes the beer as "better than sex", Sypha -- now Trevor's partner in a BattleCouple relationship after the last season ended with a RelationshipUpgrade between the two of them -- freezes his drink with ice magic in anger. Trevor tries a VerbalBackspace to calm down Sypha, but it doesn't take.

Added DiffLines:

* UnknownRival: As of the end of Season 3, Trevor, Sypha and Alucard don't even know that Isaac and Carmilla ''exist'', much less what they're up to.


* TrilogyCreep: A [[TropesAreTools positive]] example. As stated above, the series was originally intended as a movie trilogy. According to Ellis, the first season makes up what would've been the first movie, while the second season makes up what would've been the second and third movies. Since the series is continuing on past the second season, it's safe to say the tale has grown.



* UnderestimatingBadassery: Alucard, upon meeting Trevor, says the latter has nothing but insults, at which Trevor whips his dhampir ass across the room.

Added DiffLines:

** Saint-Germain snarks at the Judge by explaining that Trevor and Sypha shared drinks with him because he was a celebrity who knew what toilet paper was. Later, when Saint-Germain questions Prior Sala about missing pages from a Forgemaster's tome, Sala dismisses him by stating that someone must've used the pages to wipe their backside like in China.
-->'''Judge''': What the ''fuck'' is toilet paper?!

Added DiffLines:

* WhatMeasureIsANonHuman: {{Inverted}}, in regards to the vampires' view on humans. Dracula likens humanity to a plague that needs to be wiped out, while Hector likens them more to an invasive species that shouldn't be driven to extinction, but culled and their population controlled. [[spoiler:Going into Season 3, Carmilla and her sisters refer to Hector as "[[ItIsDehumanizing it]]", and when Lenore enslaves him and requests an extra-large bed so she can train him to be a SexSlave, Carmilla and the others react with disgust, as if Lenore had stated she was going to have sex with a pet dog. Carmilla, likewise, likens humanity to livestock, with her scheme revolving around controlling territory for the purpose of ensuring a self-sustaining source of nourishment.]]


* UnderestimatingBadassery: Alucard upon meeting Trevor Belmont says the latter has nothing but insults, at which Trevor [[WhipItGood holy whips]] his Dyampir ass across the room.
** Carmilla in Season 2 being TheStarscream assumes she and her army can just take down {{Dracula}} by force. Considering ''the heroes'' got [[CurbStompBattle utterly trounced]] by Dracula in combat and only "won" thanks to his HeelRealization, Carmilla may have overestimated her chances a bit.
*** It's ironic since Carmilla averted this when it came to Trevor as she reminds the rest of the Vampires that the Belmonts "''hunted them for fucking centuries''". Even Dracula after initially writing Trevor off was forced to acknowledge him after Trevor brought him to his knees with the Morning Star Whip.
** The CorruptChurch is the biggest offender, as they ignored Dracula's threats that he would rain hell upon them for killing his wife in two years if they didn't repent. When the time came and the church [[TooDumbToLive celebrated instead]], claiming "the devil lied" they only had themselves to blame when TheLegionsOfHell showed up.
** While trying to get back to Europe Isaac is accosted by a group of Tunisian guards that want him to leave the city immediately and threaten him with weapons. While he is surrounded by a large group of vicious monsters. The guards don't last long when they press the issue. Happens [[HereWeGoAgain again]] with the guards in Genoa with pretty much the same result.
