%%* TragicMonsterTragicMonster: Boy, is Adam ''ever''. It's heartbreaking reading the book again when he's a BlankSlate and you ''know'' that it won't last because of how the world treats him.



* WoobieDestroyerOfWorlds: Not of the entire world, but of Victor's. Though by the end he's hostile towards humanity in general.

** Indeed, an alternate name for the novel is the Modern Prometheus. However, the case could be made that Victor is the one who is actually responsible for much of the suffering that occurs due to his mistreatment of the Creature, which could, in a way, be considered his son. Thus, Frankenstein could be either one, and they could both be considered the villain for their actions.

* TheGrotesque

to:

* TheGrotesqueTheGrotesque: An unusual case, as Victor had gone to great lengths to choose only the ''best'' parts for each section of the monster's body (best eyes, best hands, etc.) - unfortunately, cobbling together the parts in such a manner meant that once the monster started ''moving'', he fell squarely into the UncannyValley.
