I think you used the wrong image, bro. The one you used isn't any better than Edward.

******** he isn't. Nosferatu is a bad-ass. Get your stupidly overpowered Alucard out of here. That isn't a vampire, that is what it looks like when Michael Bay makes an anime. Nothing but giant guns, explosions, killing, and nonsensical invincibility.

Nosferatu had a storyline. A legitimate storyline. Besides that, he was actually there to inspire fear like a MONSTER, not kick-ass becuz dat is cul an vampeerz r cul.

Let's calm down.

It's still an awesome show, and he's still a bad ass vampire. It doesn't matter if he was made to be overpowered or bad ass.

Also, attempting to belittle Alucard by typing liekdiz doesn't make you any more intelligent than what you're trying to act superior over. I'm also pretty sure the Hellsing series is basically all about how Alucard inspires fear in pretty much everything by being a monster.

Also, there is never a legitimate storyline in a story about vampires. They're fake. No matter the story, it's going to be ridiculous and it's going to be over-the-top when it includes vampires.

...Nah. It kind of does matter. I'm pissed because it is an outrage that the perception of vampires have been so horribly warped from what they were meant to be.

Alucard doesn't inspire fear. You don't go to bed at night thinking about how horribly scary he is. You don't worry that you will wake up to find him looking you in the face. Sure it would be bad if he were, but it doesn't scare you. Because it wasn't meant to.

It was meant to shoot things and go boom and laugh when things shot it.

Actually, there are plenty of legitimate stories about vampires. Since when does fake mean there is no story? Surely you have heard of Brave New World, or Lonesome Dove, or hell, Harry Potter. They all are stories that are entirely fake. It doesn't make them not a story.

Believe it or not, there was a time when it wasn't ridiculous or over the top. When they were creatures of the night, that were a threat during the night, and could be anywhere at any time. But, not if they weren't invited in, not if they came in to contact with garlic, and not if you could put a stake through its heart.

You know why? Because that is what made it scary. There was a way to kill them, and that is what made things REAL about it. That is what gave the stories life. That anyone could secretly be one. That the neighbor you just had over for dinner, or that man who just wandered in to town and needed a place to stay, could secretly be a blood-sucking monstrosity that needed to feed to keep the guise of being human up, it could hide in any shadow, but here is the thing.

The light always dispelled the darkness. There was always a way when there was a will. That made it terrifying. It put responsibility in to the hands of the victim. It made things about fear. It wasn't over the top, it was entirely probable, just not likely. But there was always a creeping, horrifying, chance.

So no, you twit. It wasn't always over-the-top.

Uh, the amount of stupidity and bias in your post is pretty ridiculous.

Alucard inspires fear to the other characters in the anime. I'm pretty sure no one goes to sleep thinking Nosferatu is going to kill them, or being fearful that he might (especially since he doesn't exist).

Alucard is also the main character, and a good guy to boot, so no, he won't "inspire fear" in the viewer. He's not meant to.

No, there are never legitimate stories about vampires. I know, this is hard for you to believe, but I'll say it again: vampires aren't real. Any story about them is over the top and ridiculous.

Your reasoning behind why Alucard sucks and Nosferatu is omgsoawesome is just that Alucard is too powerful and Nosferatu is "omg so scary because he could be real!!!" It's ridiculous. They're both fake, figments of the imagination.

Vampires also don't have a clear-cut definition, as they're simply figments of the imagination of the creator.

Once again, they're fake (I can't stress this enough, since you more and more seem like you actually believe they exist).

A legitimate storyline is different from a good storyline. By "legitimate," I assumed you meant realistic, as you used it pretty ambiguously.

Alright, let me clarify things for you.

First, I've never believed that the 'hiss hiss turn in to a bat' vampires are real.

Vampires are derived from two places. One being Vlad the Impaler. He was incredibly cruel, if someone didn't have enough money to pay his taxes, he'd kill their family and hold a banquet, forcing the one who owed the taxes to eat his own kin. He once asked a group of emissaries to remove their turbans while in church, and when they refused for religious and personal reasons he drove nails in to their skulls. He was deathly allergic to garlic(That is where the idea for killing them with garlic came from) and he liked to sleep in the coffin he intended to be buried in. His own wife bathed in blood regularly.

The second are cannibals. Many cannibals are classified as 'vampires' because while they do not like to consume the flesh, they enjoyed draining the blood of their victims(Typically through the jugular vein, which is where the biting of the neck came from) or even drink directly through the wound they made.

These were the real vampires, these are the real vampires, and this is what the monsters in the stories represent; I can tell you right now that sociopaths wear many masks, and they CAN be anywhere. They are quiet, deadly, horrible beings and they do exist.

I'm well aware at the history of how vampires became what they are today. Thanks for your attempt at a history lesson though.

Folklore vampires are still not real. Cannibals aren't classified as vampires, either. Cannibals eat the flesh of their own species. If they don't eat flesh, they aren't cannibals. Draining blood doesn't make you a cannibal.

You're grasping at straws. Vampires aren't real.
User avatar #131 to #128 - sorrowofdaedalus (05/29/2012) [-]
The only reason it would be an attempt is because you are an utter fool and do not understand the message.

I'm not grasping at straws, It seems more like I'm trying to teach a monkey quantum physics.

First of all, if you were to be found drinking the blood of a person, that would be considered cannibalism. A species consuming any part of the same species is cannibalism, even liquid parts like blood.

Second of all, they are real in the sense that they are the interpretations of cannibals and homicidal sociopaths. Why don't you get that concept? It is like you realize that you've come to a wall, but instead of just admitting defeat you are trying to make me seem like I'm crazy by continually making accusations that I have repeatedly stated are false.
#133 to #131 - Krathalos (05/29/2012) [-]
You're completely grasping at straws. The fact that you don't see it makes it pretty hilarious.

"Cannibals are like vampires because of ___! Vlad the Impaler is a vampire because of ___!"

Then you throw in some insults and a superiority complex and bam, you think you're right.

And yes, drinking blood would be considered cannibalism. I never claimed it wasn't. I stated that draining blood doesn't make you a cannibal, which is a fact.

Personally I like Alucard but I agree with what your saying about how the media has warped around the idea of vampires since the days of Nosferatu. One always has to keep in mind that Nosferatu was based on the actual legends of vampires and vampires themselves didn't get sexualized until Dracula and the Vampyre in which they could clothe themselves as gentleman and seduce their prey. Kudos to you for knowing your legends (not many people know the invite them in first bit)
User avatar #118 to #115 - sorrowofdaedalus (05/29/2012) [-]
Meh, I've never much liked vampires, to be honest, but if there is one thing you should have for enemies, it is respect. I dislike them, but I also recognize that the horrible excuses for writers have stripped them of the dignity they once had. They no longer can even be included in the horror genre, and whether I ever liked them or not, that is sad.
User avatar #122 to #118 - bizengaust (05/29/2012) [-]
It is sad I have to say especially when Jk rowlings version of vampires, whom where only mentioned for about a paragraph or two were still better and more vampiric then the entire Twilight series. What it comes down to is people don't want the real thing because the real thing is scary (which is the point duh?) so they castrate it and ruin it for everyone else.
User avatar #124 to #122 - sorrowofdaedalus (05/29/2012) [-]
Oh well. There was once a time that people appreciated horror, but I guess that day is over for the majority.

Little girls should just sit on their clay thrones and play princess. Real vampires have work to do.

I'm more along the lines of this man.

Good show. Vlad the Impaler. Now that is a real vampire.
#119 to #110 - Krathalos (05/29/2012) [-]
No, Vlad the Impaler wasn't a real vampire. There are no real vampires. Vlad the Impaler was a ruler of Wallachia whose favorite method of execution was impaling.

You don't really believe vampires exist, do you?
User avatar #123 to #119 - sorrowofdaedalus (05/29/2012) [-]
.....You are a real ignoramus. He was one of the several sources who inspired the idea of vampires, and he was a real vampire in the sense of he was exactly what they symbolize.
#126 to #123 - Krathalos (05/29/2012) [-]
He inspired them through stories with extreme exaggerations.

He didn't do anything that a vampire is said to do in folklore. His stories simply started the vampire ideas. That doesn't make him a vampire. They don't exist.
User avatar #129 to #126 - sorrowofdaedalus (05/29/2012) [-]
He was deathly allergic to garlic, he drank blood, he avoided coming out of his castle in the morning unless it was to go to war(Which I admit was to lower the risk of assassination, but still), he slept in the coffin he wanted to be buried in regularly, and his wife bathed in blood.

These are historical facts about the man. They sound an awful lot like vampire myths, too.
#132 to #129 - Krathalos (05/29/2012) [-]
Never have I read that he was allergic to garlic, though you seem to truly stick to that notion, so I'll trust you on it.

Everything else is legend, which I of course bring back my reasoning of stories of extreme exaggerations. None of it is "historical fact."

He was seen as an extremely scary person by those who told stories of him, so obviously the stories of him are going to be exaggerated.

His wife bathing in blood is irrelevant. I feel you added that in for ***** and giggles.
