* YouAreTooLate: When Seward summons Helsing, he notices the bite marks on her neck getting bigger (due to Dracula exacerbating the wound with his bites). After his third attack, they try to give her a blood transfusion but by then they notice she's much paler then usual. When Arthur comes near her, her demeanor changes to being uncharacteristically lustful and Helsing notices her bite marks have vanished. This confirms, to his dismay, that she is beyond saving and is becoming a vampire.

* GettingCrapPastTheRadar: Mina Harker's journal entry in chapter 23 paraphrases some sailors, and their obscenities. An example: "They say much of blood and bloom and of others which I comprehend not, though I guess what they mean" and "Whereupon the captain tell him that he had better be quick--with blood--for that his ship will leave the place--of blood-- before the turn of the tide--with blood."

* BreakingAndBloodsucking: The TropeCodifier with a helping hand from PopCulturalOsmosis. Dracula never technically enters Lucy's bedroom. On the first occasion, he hypnotises her to leave the house and go down to the park. Thereafter, he goes to her bedroom window as a bat and she climbs partway out of it to be drained. When vamping [[spoiler: Mina]], he was able to enter because an inmate of the asylum she was sleeping in gave him leave.

* The Brides -- Three beautiful and seductive HornyDevils who reside in Dracula's castle, desiring Jonathan's blood and welcoming Mina as their sister when's she's a VampireRefugee. Due to their short role, it's not made clear what their relationship to Dracula is, some theorizing they're his wife and daughters/sisters/lovers or simply past victims he keeps for company. Their portrayal in various forms of media tend to shift on their behavior. Sometimes they are simply coquettish, while other times they are sexually forward. Often fall victim to AdaptationDyeJob.

* HairOfGoldHeartOfGold: Interesting variation. Lucy, befitting her treasured English Rose status, is described as blonde (Seward refers to her hair lying on her bed pillow in "sunny ripples"), but as a vampire, is described by eyewitnesses as having dark hair. Especially fitting as her childlike innocence before getting attacked by Dracula is absent from her vampire form.
