* ''Film/VanHelsing'' had Hyde as the first monster the titular Van Helsing fights. Hyde is an ape-like monster who battles Van Helsing in the BatmanColdOpen. Hyde turns back into Jekyll on his death, unlike the original story. An animated prequel fleshes out the backstory, with Jekyll having the hots for Queen Victoria of England and harvesting essence from young women to make her a temporary youth potion.

* Straightforward film adaptations in 1920 (with John Barrymore), [[Film/DrJekyllAndMrHyde1931 1931]] (with Creator/FredricMarch and Miriam Hopkins) and 1941 (with Creator/SpencerTracy, Creator/IngridBergman and Lana Turner.) Jekyll was cast much younger than he is in the novel, and female love interests are added. They also abandon the character of Utterson and his investigation for a story centered on Jekyll and Hyde. The 1931 film is probably the best-regarded film version. It offers a rare case of a horror film winning an UsefulNotes/AcademyAward, as March won Best Actor for his portrayal of Jekyll and Hyde. The 1941 one was a direct remake of the '31 film.

* NoPronunciationGuide: According to the author it should be "''Jee''-kyll", not "''Jeh''-kyll". Not that that's ever stopped anybody from pronouncing it "''Jeh''-kyll" for decades.

* Jekyll and Hyde appear in seasons 5 and 6 of ''Series/OnceUponATime''. It's ultimately revealed that Hyde isn't actually evil but simply driven to act on every emotion, while Jekyll is far worse, doing evil actions despite being able to control himself.


Added DiffLines:

* Russell Crowe plays both parts in the Film/DarkUniverse, the shared universe of the Franchise/UniversalHorror films. This is in spite of the story not having been part of the original film series, as the two contemporary films mentioned above were made by Paramount and MGM respectively.

* EvilMakesYouUgly: Played with. Hyde "gave an impression of deformity without any nameable malformation" -- that is, he isn't ugly in physical appearance, but something about him instinctively repels people. His attitude and behaviour are described with adjectives such as "troglodytic" and "ape-like" which also contributes to the impression of ugliness.

Jekyll theorized that there is an instinctive disgust and hatred when people faces pure evil.
