The main protagonist of Hideyuki Kikuchi's Vampire Hunter D, D was the only successful dhampir offspring of Dracula himself. Being far stronger than most every vampire in the world, and containing lessened forms of their weaknesses, D traveled the world hunting down the monsters that preyed on humanity. All the while, D served as a symbol of hope for humanity, propelling them forwards to take back the world.

Powers & Abilities


  • Longsword: D's sword is incredibly long, almost as long as D is tall, and its blade is just as impressively sharp, being capable of cutting through steel with ease.
  • Cape: D's cape is very flexible and strong, capable of grabbing and throwing opponents with ease.


  • Sunlight: While sunlight won't kill D, it does cause him great pain. Every once in a while, D will suffer from Sunlight Syndrome, requiring him to bury himself in the dirt to recover, during which time he's vulnerable to attack.
  • Crosses: Crosses don't hurt D all that much, but they do strain him.
  • Roses: Touching a rose will allegedly put D in great agony.
  • Water: D, supposedly, cannot cross running water or stand in water without being paralyzed, though this is inconsistent.
