By the way, sorry for misspelling my profile name. The correct word is Plebotinum (link http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/AppliedPhlebotinum)
Ok, now I'm just trying to fill space. Did anyone notice that Mario the plumber is just like a berserker? He eats red mushrooms to get increased strength (and size), and wears an animal costume to be one with the spirit (raccoon, not bear or wolf, though).
Differences/similarities between Twilight by Stephanie Meyer and DarrenShan/Vampire's Assistant/Cirque Du Freak By Darren O'Shaughnessy:
1. Stephanie Meyer based Bella Swan, who later turns into a vampire, on herself to live out romantic fantasies she is unable to get due to being married and overweight. Darren O'Shaughnessy based Darren Shan, also turned vampire, on himself to live out his manly adventure fantasies that he cannot get due to being overweight.
2. Edward Cullen is a strict, dominating overprotective father figure to his girlfriend/wife Bella. Larten Crepsley and his girlfriend Arra Sails are strict and dominating parental substitutes for Darren.
3. Meyer's vampires are different from Stoker's: stronger than normal, dull teeth, venom, unable to feed non-lethally on their victim no weaknesses aside from decapitation by superhumanly strong opponents plus fire due to sparkly,diamond bodies, have painful transformations and much more appealing to female readers despite their extreme powers .
O'Shaughnessy's vampires are closer to Stoker's, but still different: feeding by knocking humans out with exhaled sleep gas and piercing the neck with two claws harmlessly and healing the wound with their saliva, transforming or 'blooding' humans into vampires by piercing the fingers on each party's opposite hands and mixing the blood, using static electricity from fast running to pick locks and have a 'vampanese' variety whose skin is purple from drinking too much blood, and are much more manly despite having weaknesses to injury and sunlight.
