** Interestingly, when Victor starts creating a female monster for the Creature, it occurs to him that the female monster will be just as intelligent as the male, and has neither made any promises to abstain from violence, nor consented to be the Creature's bride. He even ponders the idea that she will rebel against the two of them trying to control her, creating a ''second'' angry crime against nature. This is a level of characterization no other female character gets.

This The She-Creature is a level of characterization no never even completed, but Frankenstein imagines her more complexly than any other female character gets.character.

* BodyHorror: Implied. The Creature's appearance is never precisely described, but is apparently so horrifying that one look makes everyone who sees him including his own creator want to destroy him.

Oddly enough, Victor describes the monster's body pre-animation as beautiful, save for its horribly unsettling eyes, so it may not be ugly so much as UncannyValley.

* ByronicHero: Both Victor Frankenstein and the Creature.

to:

* ByronicHero: Both Victor Frankenstein and the Creature. Given that Creator/LordByron himself was present at the novel's inception, both this novel and its "brother", John Polidori's ''Literature/TheVampyre,'' which was a massive TakeThat at Byron after his behaviour on the trip, could be considered the TropeMakers outside Byron's own work.

** This is probably due to Percy Shelley's revisions, which changed Mary's prose to be as unnecessary complicated and melodramatic as possible. For instance, he changed "I do not wish to hate you" to "I will not be tempted to set myself in opposition to thee."
