Continuity mistake: When Abe is being tortured by the Harpies, at one point, you can see that his body is covered with cuts and his blue-colored blood. The blood then disappears and reappears in subsequent shots.

Deliberate mistake: After Prof. Broom finally defeats the vampire countess near the end of the movie, many of her ghostly victims appear around the room. And, if you look closely, you can see that many of them look exactly like one another, revealing that the animators simply would repeat the same images over and over onscreen, to make the crowd bigger. (Confirmed in DVD commentary).

Trivia: The Erzebet character is based very loosely on a real figure from history, Countess Elizabeth Bathory. Bathory was tried in the 1600's for killing numerous women (some claim as many as 600). Eventually, her horrifying crimes led to the creation of the false legend that she would bathe in the blood of those she killed to retain her youth.

Trivia: A post-credit sequence in this film hints at a third "Hellboy: Animated" film that would feature a popular character from the comics named "Lobster Johnson." However, the studios were not pleased with the DVD sales for the first two "Hellboy Animated" films, and all production on the third has been put on hold.

Question: Are there any websites or books that deal with the types of monsters featured in the "Hellboy Animated" films?

Chosen answer: 90% of the creatures in Hellboy are taken from various myths and legends. Any books dealing with mythology or medieval stories should be ideal.
