* BullyingADragon: The prison guard when he discovers that the Monster is afraid of fire. Here's a piece of advice: If you're going to taunt a 7-foot tall, super-strong monster with anger issues, don't do so within arm's reach.

* CreatingLifeIsBad: Completely averted. The problem is that Igor got "Abby Normal"'s brain for the monster, not that bringing him to life was inherently wrong.



* MadScientist: Frederick eventually lives up to this trope fully as part of his CharacterDevelopment.

to:

* MadScientist: Frederick eventually lives up to this trope fully as part of his CharacterDevelopment.CharacterDevelopment-with one critical difference from his forebears, he recognizes the consequences of his actions and actually attempts to mitigate them.


Added DiffLines:

* ScienceIsBad: Subverted. Fredrick wants to avoid really new fields out of fear of becoming the latest example of this in his lineage, but unlike his namesake actually treats the monster with respect, care, and eventually puts himself at risk to repair his brain, leading the monster to become a normal, friendly member of society.

Added DiffLines:

* TheCameo: Creator/GeneHackman as the blind man.



* TheShill: Mr. Hilltop, the human guinea pig whom Dr. Frankenstein [[BlatantLies claims to have never met]], receives an extra dollar for his assistance.



* {{Tuckerisation}}:
** The Gasthaus, or guest house at the beginning of the riot scene is Gasthaus Gruskoff, named after producer Michael Gruskoff.
** The name on the third brain when Igor makes his selection is that of the movie's assistant property master, Charles Sertin.
* VideoWill: Frederick Frankenstein's great-grandfather left a recorded message in an actual record. Turns into BrokenRecord, where, after the news of their not getting ''any'' inheritance has been relayed, the will gets stuck on the unfortunate phrase - "Up yours... Up yours... Up yours..."

Wilder is Frederick Frankenstein ("That's ''Fronkensteen!''"), grandson of the infamous mad scientist, who is determined to distance himself from the family legacy. When he inherits the family estate in Transylvania, he goes to inspect the property, where he encounters a household staff including the hunchbacked servant Igor (Creator/MartyFeldman) who insists on having his name pronounced "Eye-gor", nubile assistant Inga (Teri Garr), and mirthless housekeeper Frau Blücher ([[HairTriggerSoundEffect *WHINNY*]]) (Cloris Leachman). Discovering his grandfather's laboratory and private journals, Frederick becomes similarly obsessed with the idea of re-animating the dead, and with Igor's assistance steals the corpse of a recently-hanged criminal; he then assigns Igor with stealing the preserved brain of "scientist and saint" Hans Delbrück, but an accident leads to the brain's destruction and forces Igor to substitute an abnormal brain without Frederick's knowledge. The creature (Creator/PeterBoyle) is animated and proves to be uncontrollably violent, and then Frau Blücher, (*WHINNY*) who was Victor Frankenstein's lover, sets him free...

* WakingUpElsewhere: Elizabeth is kidnapped by faints when the monster while sleeping kidnaps her (we only hear her scream from offscreen, but then see the monster carrying her in classic horror movie style) and is visually upset when waking she wakes up in a cave.

* [[Retraux]]: Brooks went through a lot of effort to make the film look as close to a 1930s production as possible. The most obvious aspect of this is being black and white. Brooks initially worked with Columbia Studios as the production company, but soon took the film to Fox because Columbia insisted on filming in colour.
