** It's later revealed that this universe's Dracula has had a centuries-long feud with Apocalypse, and has crossed paths with Comicbook/DoctorStrange and the Comicbook/{{X-Men}} several times. Also, he was a common vampire until he drank the blood of Varnae.

Stoker named the Count after the historical figure [[UsefulNotes/VladTheImpaler Vlad III Dracula]], [[WarriorPrince voïvode]] of Wallachia (part of modern Romania), known as [[ImpaledWithExtremePrejudice Vlad the Impaler.]] Despite being similarly bloodthirsty, he was more prone to impaling his enemies than to biting their necks and drinking their blood. Indeed, in the novel, the Count claims to be related to Vlad III and [[TheProfessor Van Helsing]] conjectures that the two are [[HistoricalVillainUpgrade one and the same]]. Though because of some historically inaccurate details, it's fair to say Bram Stoker did not actually know a lot about the historical Dracula beyond the name and a degree of the reputation, probably less than modern fans do. Because of this connection, "Vlad" is commonly used as a first name when Dracula appears in works that actually ''give'' him a first name, whether or not any historical reference is made.

* Vlad Tepes, while presumably not possessing any special powers, is a member of TheKnightsTemplar in ''VideoGame/AssassinsCreedI''. He's also one of the multiplayer characters in ''VideoGame/AssassinsCreedRevelations'', though he doesn't appear in person, having been killed by the Ottomans a while ago.

* "The Dracula Dossier" is a campaign for ''TabletopGame/NightsBlackAgents'' based on the premise that Stoker's novel was actually [[LiteraryAgentHypothesis a censored version of the truth]]: British intelligence's attempt to recruit Dracula as an asset. An "unredacted" version of Stoker's novel is available both on its own and as part of the campaign.

* 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.
