** Universal Pictures made a second adaptation of ''Film/{{Dracula|1979}}'' in 1979. It's based on the same play as the 1931 film was, and like Bela Lugosi before him, Frank Langella came to the title role via his success playing it on stage. This version presents Dracula as a much more romantic figure, particularly where his relationship with Lucy -- whose story function is swapped with Mina's -- is concerned, than the novel and previous adaptations did, presaging a similar rethinking of the character in ''Film/BramStokersDracula''. (Other changes: this doomed Mina is also Van Helsing's daughter, and the temporal setting is 1913.)

* In ''Webcomic/BramAndVlad'', the title characters are the descendents of Van Helsing and Dracula, respectively. The big D himself hasn't appeared in the actual comic, but there are plenty of spin-off strips with him.

-->'''Player:''' Would you like some wine?
-->'''Dracula:''' I do not drink...vine.
-->'''Player:''' Is that your piano Dracula
-->'''Dracula:''' Yes. I haff...many pianos! I like to...play them...in the evenink.
-->'''Player:''' Do you know many songs Dracula

* ''VideoGame/MeltyBlood'' has a vampire called the Night of Wallachia. No, that's not just a fancy title, he's actually a night, as in the period of time between sundown and sunrise. He was an alchemist who was obsessed with stopping the end of the world that he predicted for the distant future. However, he was mortal and didn't have enough time to figure out the solution, so he made a DealWithTheDevil and turned himself into both a vampire and a recurring phenomenon (likened to a hurricane, something that just happens whenever the conditions are right) wherein he would materialize local rumors. The first place where his night occurred was Wallachia, giving him the shape and personality of Dracula, which seems to have stuck with him for future occurrences.
** Well, it's a bit unclear, since the manga adaptation says that his form in the fighting games is how he looked like before becoming a phenomenon. Then again, the Franchise/{{Nasuverse}} [[FlipFlopOfGod has never been consistent to begin with.]] Incidentally, his appearance is a reference to ''Franchise/{{Castlevania}}'' - he's based off the concept art for Dracula in ''VideoGame/SuperCastlevaniaIV''.

* Dracula's [[TheAtoner atoning]], [[VegetarianVampire vegan]] daughter Draculaura is one of the main characters in ''Franchise/MonsterHigh''. She's a PerkyGoth who prefers to wear pink. He shows up in the 2015 remake, having settled down to raise Draculaura properly and even helping to found Monster High (it's pretty much his home converted into a school) so she can have others to interact with.



* Dracula is a recurring character on ''WesternAnimation/TheGrimAdventuresOfBillyAndMandy''. This version resembles Redd Foxx for some reason. He's black, seemingly has dementia, and is fond of speaking of himself in the third person. Grim is his biggest fan but it often becomes a case of "not meeting your heroes". It's interesting to note that incarnation looks somewhat like Dracula's description in the early chapters of the novel. Claims the whole 'sucking blood' thing is a myth and that he scrapes and licks, like a vampire bat would. [[spoiler: Irwin's grandfather on his father's side.]]
