* In ''Literature/TheDresdenFiles'', Dracula is said to be the son of Vlad Drakul, a monster of enormous power. Dracula is a member of the classically vampiric Black Court, but according to Ebenezer McCoy joined as an act of youthful rebellion. The book ''Literature/{{Dracula}}'' was commissioned by the White Court to Bram Stoker, to act as a manual to explain to {{Muggles}} how to kill Black Court vampires. It was very effective, and nowadays only the most badass Black Court vampires survive. Whether Dracula is among them is unknown; the book might have also been an account of Dracula's death, or might have simply used a powerful Black Court member as an example.

* Creator/FriedrichWilhelmMurnau's 1922 film ''Film/{{Nosferatu}}'' was an unauthorized adaptation of the then-copyrighted novel. The characters have all different names (Max Schreck's hideously repulsive vampire is called "Count Orlok"), and it takes place in Germany rather than England. Still, the Stoker estate sued and won, the court ordering all the prints to be destroyed. It had already been distributed too widely for that and many copies survived.

* A 1979 version, directed by John Badham and starring Frank Langella, offers a more romantic interpretation of the character.
* ''Film/BramStokersDracula'' (1992) is another attempt at telling the tale. While it makes some effort to adhere more closely to the novel's events than most film adaptations, director Francis Ford Coppola couldn't resist giving him a bad case of {{Angst}} and turning the whole thing into a story about love, despite the original Dracula being essentially the personification of syphilis. On the other hand, it featured quite a few well-known actors and art design by [[ComicBook/{{Hellboy}} Mike Mignola]], it was perhaps Creator/GaryOldman's breakout role, and it was ''highly'' entertaining to watch Music/TomWaits and AnthonyHopkins being batshit insane from start to finish.

* In 1970, a movie called 'Count Dracula' (sometimes also called 'Nights When Dracula Wakes') was made, which starred Cristopher Lee, but wasn't a part of Hammer series. Other actors include Herbert Lom as van Helsing and Klaus Kinski as Renfield, and it was directed by Jesus Franco. It was very faithful to the novel, the only notable changes being merging Quincy and Arthur, Seward not being Lucy's suitor, and Harker ending up in Seward's hospital after his escape from Dracula's castle. The movie is notable for having Dracula look like he was described in the books (elderly man with moustache), and showing him getting younger as he drinks blood.

* ''WesternAnimation/CountDuckula'' and the Count von Count in ''Series/SesameStreet'' are parodies of the Bela Lugosi movie incarnations of Dracula.
