Alucard From Hellsing & Hellsing Ultimate
Sometimes the only way to fight and kill monsters is to throw in an even, bigger fiercer monster at them. For the Royal Protestant Knights / the Hellsing Organization, from the Hellsing anime & manga, their trump card against the forces of darkness is the ultimate vampire – Alucard. Armed with a cool, biting personality, an appreciation for stylish theatrics, practically omnipotent & invulnerable, and a powerful set of pistols, this vampire brings destruction to all enemies – including zombies, ghouls, vampires, freaks, heretics, and a ton of Nazis. Not to mention, his ultimate form transforms him back into Count Dracula/Vlad the Impaler, decked with medieval armor and a sword, and a summoned army of the damned behind him.
If there ever was a more appropriate hunter to fit the bill to single-handedly ridding the city of Yharnam of its demonic denizens, it would be Alucard. He is a creature of the night that subjugates all who threaten his master with little mercy. I mean, come on, look at him! Furthermore, similar to the mechanics of the game where your hunter gains strength and customization options from drinking Tainted and Pure Blood via the Blood System, Alucard becomes stronger and acquires the abilities, knowledge, memories, and souls from the blood he drinks.
I feel so so sorry for any bosses who went up against Alucard. Total overkill.
It is no surprise here the members of the Bloodborne community sought to recreate this force of nature. On NeoGAF, user Loakum has attempted to create the best Hellsing Ultimate Alucard adaptation over the course of the past week in the NeoGAF “Show Off Your Bloodborne Hunter” thread. Over the course of four posts, his results are impressive and accurate (post 1, post 2, post 3, and post 4).
A second user by the name Somnium posted his/her rendition of Alucard – complete with his iconic orange-red sunglasses and the perfect selection of Victorian-era cloak and hat.
