** Goes through one at the beginning of season two, due to her encounter with the witches. Such an experience brings to her mind her time with the Cut-Wife of Ballantree Moor, the evil of the Nightcomers, the Cut-Wife's execution and Vanessa's own branding at the hands of the witches' minions.
** Undergoes another one at the beginning of season three, due to being abandoned by Victor, Malcolm, and Ethan. This one is significantly more serious a depressive episode, to the point where Vanessa has neglected the house, her appearance, and is frightened of light itself.

* FunctionalAddict: Due to medicine he was administered as a child, he is addicted to morphine and other narcotics. By the end of season 2, however, he barely qualifies as functional as his addiction has more or less consumed him.

* BloodKnight: As close to literal as you can get; Catriona credits Dracula with provoking a long and bloody war between the Holy Roman Empire and the Ottoman Empire, with the intent of making the world wet with blood to feast upon.

* ComboPlatterPowers: Just like in the novel. He has already displayed his SuperStrength, but he may also have some form of MindManipulation. Catriona Hartdegen confirms that Dracula can [[{{Shapeshifting}} shapeshift]], altering his appearance and identity every century in order to blend in. [[spoiler: During his confrontation with Vanessa and Lucifer, he is able to [[MindOverMatter move objects with his mind]], though this ability is not yet confirmed as this happened entirely in Vanessa's mind]]. Later, it's shown that he's [[SuperSpeed fast enough to dodge bullets]].

* EldritchAbomination: Presumably, Dracula's unseen true form. We have no definite description of it besides the fact that he's [[NighInvulnerability nigh-invulnerable]], can manipulate minds, drinks blood, and has been alive since the dawn of time. [[spoiler: Ultimately, the Alexander Sweet visage is just a façade to seduce Vanessa.]]
* EvenEvilHasLovedOnes: Dracula mentions to Vanessa on one of their outings that he is still adjusting from the death of his wife a year earlier: a "wife" who may or may not have been Mina Murray.
** [[spoiler: Dr. Sweet's dead wife]] might be a lie, as he casually throws Mina's death in Sir Malcolm's face. However, if Dracula's confession in "Ebb Tide" (and WordOfSaintPaul) is to be believed, [[spoiler: he actually fell in love with Vanessa during his pursuit of her]].

* EvilSoundsRaspy: He speaks in a labored, quiet voice, almost like a whisper.

* GlassCannon: Downplayed. Catriona confirms that, while his true form is completely unkillable, his human form is as vulnerable as any mortal's. However, while he takes the threat of gunshots and mortal wounds seriously, and deliberately avoids a confrontation with the Wolfman, the fact that he can easily dodge bullets and is super strong renders the point (almost) moot.

* StuffedIntoTheFridge: To show the audience that Dorian isn't so sweet as he seems. Angelique discovers Dorian's portrait and, upon Dorian's discovery of her in the painting room, swears she loves him still. Dorian smiles, gives her a glass of wine, and watches her die of the poison he's put into the glass. His smile doesn't change.

* DarkIsNotEvil: Coarse and morbid, and feared by the local villagers, the Cut-Wife is nevertheless well-intentioned and benevolent... if not a bit gruff and cynical.
