* BrokenBase: The reveal in season 5 that [[spoiler:Vlad is half human, especially since there was zero foreshadowing for it.]]


* MagnificentBastard:
** Bertrand can be ''incredibly'' cunning, attempting to kill Erin and frame Ingrid to stop her [[DistractedByTheSexy distracting Vlad from his studies]]. [[spoiler: Even when the plan fails, Vlad and Erin still believe Ingrid was responsible - to the extent that they apologise to Bertrand for suspecting him!]]
*** He seems somewhat less so, admittedly, after he is OutGambitted by the Count, who [[MisBlamed blames him]] for the actions of new Vlad.
** Also, Vlad in series 3, especially [[spoiler: when he goes bad.]]
--->'''Count Dracula:''' How do I know I can trust you?
--->'''Vlad:''' Oh great, after all these years I'm ''finally'' the son you want me to be and you don't trust me. Make up your mind, Daddy. Which Vlad do you want? The old fangless wimp you could trust with your grandmother or ''me''?
*** The new merged Vlad is no slouch either.

Added DiffLines:

* EvilIsSexy: Boris is a typical homely and shy nerd before his transformation, after which he becomes a drop-dead gorgeous heart-throb who is [[spoiler: highly feral and [[WithGreatPowerComesGreatInsanity insane]] ]].


* UnfortunateImplications: In Season 5, [[spoiler: Piers is not only a very creepy StalkerWithACrush, but we're supposed to be okay with him and his incredibly creepy advances towards Ingrid. The fact that the two end up together also pretty much says that Ingrid "just needed a man", as she gives up her ambitions and settles down with him, which is ''very'' sexist, especially given how Ingrid up until that point was determined to change the inherent sexism in the vampire community.]] Much more detail is gone into about this [[http://youngdracula.tumblr.com/post/75995962152/relationship-issues-in-young-dracula here]].

Added DiffLines:

** In the first-season episode where Vlad hypnotises the Count into thinking he's an ordinary breather dad, Ingrid storms off to reverse it as soon as she hears...only for the Count to hug her, promise to spend more time with her and take an interest in her life. Ingrid can't bring herself to undo the hypnosis, despite her contempt for all things breather, because [[ParentalNeglect this is the first time the Count has ever treated her as if he cares about her.]]


* WhatDoYouMeanItsForKids? Series 3 and 4 are much darker than the previous two series.

** On the other hand, Piers gives her what her she hasn't had for almost her entire life: affection. Considering that her father and mother have either ignored her or treated her ''extremely'' cruelly, the fact that she managed to find someone who genuinely cares for her convinces her to stay at Garside.
*** Except it's not affection so much as obsession. As mentioned, Piers is a StalkerWithACrush, and Ingrid's entire character was destroyed just to make it happen. For example, she's transformed from an incredibly strong, self-reliant young woman to a terrified wreck when she's lost in the tunnels just so Piers can rescue her.
