* ''WesternAnimation/{{Castlevania}}'' takes strong inspiration from the [[Franchise/{{Castlevania}} source games]] and especially Koijma's art, making TV-Dracula simply [[https://i1.wp.com/www.kumazokuentertainment.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/07/tumblr_oss92adWP61qd49gbo1_500.gif?resize=516%2C287 incredible to behold]] plus he's got amazing [[BadassMustache facial]] [[BeardOfEvil hair]]. However ''this'' Dracula is one of the most [[TragicVillain sympathetic portrayals]] in the character history, at the start of the show he acts like his usual Dracy self [[IHaveYouNowMyPretty creeping]] on Alchemist Lisa when she enters his abode. But his character changes when Lisa claims she wants to learn from him, taken aback by her resolve he agrees and [[OffScreenRomance at some point]] marries and has a child with her. Dracula evens [[WalkingtheEarth walks the earth]] and lives as man at Lisa's request, but when he finds out the [[CorruptChurch Catholic Church]] has [[BurnTheWitch burned her at stake]] for being a witch. At which Dracula literally [[ManlyTears cries]] bloody tears and when the church refuses to change their ways, Dracula plunges the world into chaos so he can [[OmnicidalManiac wipe away humanity]]... despite the best efforts of his son to stop him.
** Dracula's power in the Netflix show is unbelievable, far greater than his other animated counterparts (even rivaling [[Anime/{{Hellsing}}]]'s Alucard), he can use [[PlayingWithFire fire elemental powers]] to [[{{Teleportation}} teleport]] across the world and make giant fiery-projections of himself as well as bats making his shape in the sky. If that wasn't enough he can summon his castle out of nowhere and has an seemly endless [[LegionsOfHell army of demons]]. The sheer power of Dracula is hinted at by Trevor, who claims ''nobody'' has actually seen Dracula and that's coming from a grandson of the [[BadassFamily Belmont clan]] meaning Dracula is so strong he almost never needs to actually face his enemies in person.

** Hellsing's Alucard; is absolute badass, GunsAkimbo, OneManArmy AntiHero/VillainProtagonist with a SlasherSmile who spills enough blood to fill three Olympic swimming pools.

Most series with vampires will eventually include either Dracula or a subversion, sometimes using a transparent alias. "Alucard", which despite sounding French is [[{{Alucard}} "Dracula" spelled backwards,]] is very common. It has been used in several movies, most famously by [[http://us.imdb.com/title/tt0036376/ Lon Chaney Jr.]] in ''Film/SonOfDracula''. Some appearances of Dracula treat "Dracul" as another name for him, but they have distinct meanings. The name "Dracula" means "''son'' of Dracul" in Romanian, literally "son of (the) dragon", but has come to mean "son of the {{Devil}}". As such, it fits the fictional vampire surprisingly well. "Dracul" was Vlad III's father Vlad II, who was called that as a result of his association with the [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Order_of_the_Dragon Order of the Dragon]].

* Appears in a 1996 commercial for Glad-Lock Zipper Bags (with the "yellow and blue make green" seal) as a skeptic of the product; the pitchman asks whether he'd prefer being near a bag of garlic soup with his brand of bag, or the Glad-Lock Zipper Bag ("so you know it's closed"). Naturally, Drac chooses the latter.
