Welcome back to Humor Nation. No matter how much people hate Twilight, but credit should be given where its due. Twilight changed the perception about the vampires. Typically, Vampires were seen as these hideous and scary creatures of night who were driven by their hunger for blood, they would burn in the sunlight, and would wear dark gothic clothes. But Twilight introduced us to a new kind of modern vampires who have adapted with the times. They can live among the humans without sticking out, they can walk into the indirect sunlight even though they would sparkle like marbles.
The major similarity that can be easily observed between the two shows is the love story between the main characters. If you watch the pilot of TVD, it would seem like a rip-off of Twilight. The relationship between Elena and Stefan mirrored Bella and Edward in so many ways. However, Bella and Edward managed to make their relationship work despite all the struggles, ended up getting married in the end. While Twilight never explored in detail about the origin of the vampire race. TVD did an amazing job of introducing us to the Originals, we explored the origin and backstory of the Mikaelson Family. How the vampires originated from the Originals, it also explained how the ordinary vampires are weaker to the Originals.
If you compare both the work, you’ll find that in some aspects Twilight did a better job. It showcased vampirism much better than Vampire Diaries in a few domains such as the vampires don’t eat eat, they don’t sleep. Whereas Vampires displayed in TVD do almost all the stuff and activities that the human beings do. Also the vampires in TVD have shown to be extremely powerful and strong, yet the creators missed on small details such as whenever the vampires end up fighting, they would slam each other against the wall or stuff, yet nothing breaks. Whereas in Twilight when Edward Cullen stopped the car, his strong force resulted in car getting a dent.
If one were to compare the vampires in terms of power, Twilight Vampires are way above the vampires from TVD. The only exceptions are the Originals who are way above everyone else in the power hierarchy of the TVD, they are even superior to the Twilight Vampires.
