    In my humble opinion, Buffy should have been #1.

      The three main criteria I went into in my mind for the list of hunters were that the Frog Brothers were top five, Abraham Van Helsing was number one, and Lincoln deserved a place on the list. After that, the list just kind of built itself. One of the things I really enjoyed was being able to draw from animation, literature, television, comics, video games, as well as popular media. I really felt that I had to draw from every point of knowledge from it. Buffy is growing especially since beyond the movie and tv series, she stays relevant to the discussion – however, I could not ignore Van Helsing and the history associated with that. Buffy would have to continue to be relevant and re-enacted decades after Weedon’s passing and have literally a dozen actresses with new and original takes on her in order to supplant Van Helsing. In my opinion, I think that would be a fair measure of judgement. Just thought that my thought process might help on that. Thanks for reading and sharing!

        Don’t worry to much. Elizabeth is a friend of mine and she is straight crazy for Buffy and F. Scott Fitzgerald – http://www.toptenz.net/10-ten-short-stories-f-scott-fitzgerald.php. ;-)

      I have never heard of Alucard and I’m an pop culture fiend, which is a reason I started this site. I assumed he was part of the one geek group I don’t follow…manga. And after a search my suspicion was confirmed. Thanks for the inclusion. For those of you interested, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alucard_%28Hellsing%29

    Where’s D from Vampire Hunter D? That guy kicked serious vampire butt. Watch both Vampire Hunter D and Vampire Hunter D: Bloodlust. Awesome animation and gripping storylines.

    Or no Japanese anime characters allowed on the list?

    Looks interesting as well as the associated clips on youtube. Honestly, I do not follow anime but in future lists, I will endeavor to check anime as well for examples in an attempt to be comprehensive. Had simply never heard of it before.

      Oh goodness… If you look into anime/manga you could make a “Anime top ten vampire slayers” list and still have people peeing their pants because you left their favorite out… I’m just saying there are a lot. More than I could count on my fingers, toes, and muscles.

    I love vampires. I think that most of those who kill them are indiscriminate and would kill ANY vampire, be they good or evil. I just think that this, in itself, is absolutely vile and hateful. Not all vampires are evil. They do not always want to just kill people randomly. In fact, if they do exist, I expect that there are probably a great many vampires out there who would only kill when they absolutely have to.
    Buffy is the only vampire killer that I have ever actually liked. This is because, in the TV show, to say the least, she only kills the ones that she knows she has to. Even I have to admit that, by the usual standard of vampire killers, Buffy is rather sweet.

    Seriously, the most bad ass vampire hunter ever, is Joel from “A Vampire Hitman From San Francisco!” Here is the link. It sucks, cause it’s not a movie; yet! But a two time loser, connected wise-guy sort, battling it out in San Francisco’s underground scene. He’s banging chicks, drinking beers, goofing around, then all of a sudden vampires are real, and they whack out a couple people close to him. So he seeks help, and finds it from the Freemasons of all places, where he meets a bad ass super hotty, who kicks as much ass as him. Watch… This book and character is going to set a new standard for how a tough-guy is supposed to be, in a vampire story line!!! http://www.barnesandnoble.com/w/a-vampire-hitman-from-san-francisco-joel-drotts/1120576285?ean=2940150748361
