Whistler: Christ! I'm too old for this! Somebody get me a goddamn wheelchair!
Quinn: I'm gonna be naughty! I'm gonna be a naughty vampire god!
Dr. Karen Jenson: How'd you get that scar, Deacon? A born vampire would have the power to regenerate from birth. You must've gotten scarred before you were turned. Isn't that right? Vampires like you aren't a species. You're just infected, a virus, a sexually transmitted dis... Deacon Frost: I'll tell you what we are, sister! We're the top of the fucking food chain.

- LL Cool J was originally considered for the part of Blade.
Donal Logue reinjured his jaw in the scene where he is struggling with N'Bushe Wright in the hospital. He had originally broken his jaw in a motorcycle accident years before.
A great many handheld shots were accomplished with a special anamorphic-lens camera that also had single-unit sound - the only one of its kind in the world.
In the scene where Blade is chased to the subway, and the subway train is passing by, all the passengers are cardboard cutouts with the special FX man among them.
Blade's silently-mouthed "What... the... fuck?" is a direct reference to the "A Fistful of Yen" segment from The Kentucky Fried Movie (1977).
