* Dracula is behind the events in an entire arc of ''Webcomic/TheAdventuresOfDrMcNinja''. Also, he has a moon base, complete with a gigantic [[KillSat moon laser.]] He also chills with [[UsefulNotes/AdolfHitler Hitler]] and has Paul [=McCartney=], Michael Jackson, and Tupac making music together. (Elvis doesn't do [=s***=].)

* ''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.

* ''WesternAnimation/TheBatman'' had a MadeForTVMovie, ''WesternAnimation/TheBatmanVsDracula'', where Dracula appeared in the present day. The Penguin became TheRenfield, while SelfDemonstrating/TheJoker became a vampire.

* Something to note about anime's terminology in reference to vampires, especially with older anime, is that vampires are generically simply called "Dracula", as if that was the standard term for the sort of monster. This has mostly been fixed in more recent anime, some as early as Manga/JoJosBizarreAdventurePhantomBlood, released in 1987, which now give "vampire" its own word: ''kyuuketsuki'' (lit. "blood-sucking demon"

* In ''WesternAnimation/{{Castlevania}}'' he's the main antagonist and his overall design takes strong inspiration from Koijma's art and even the old Hammer Horror movies making Drac [[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 actually one of the most [[TragicVillain sympathetic portrayals]] in the character history, though he starts off acting like usually gothic-self [[IHaveYouNowMyPretty creeping]] on Alchemist Lisa when she enters his abode, but his demeanor changes when Lisa claims she wants to learn from him. Taken aback by her determination and bravery he agrees to teach her, [[OffScreenRomance at some point]] Dracula marries Lisa and has a son with her. Dracula evens [[WalkingtheEarth walks the earth]] and lives as man at Lisa's request, until he discovers 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, he plunges the world into chaos so he can [[OmnicidalManiac wipe away humanity]] for taking away what he treasured most... despite his own son Alucard trying to stop him.
** Dracula's power in the Netflix show is unbelievable, far greater than his other animated counterparts (even rivaling Anime Anime/{{Hellsing}} 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. He also the [[InvincibleHero strongest character in the series]] being unable to be killed by ANY of the normal Vampire rules even a wooden stake from the holy cross can't kill him. While he is just as evil and cruel as the people he's fighting (WHO ARE [[ThoseWackyNazis NAZIS]]) Alucard does have sympathetic side seen with the women he cares for such as his babe sidekick [[ActionGirl Seras Victoria]] and of course his boss Integra. [[spoiler: Alucard also sheds some ManlyTears when his arch rival [[BadassPreacher Anderson]] gets a monstrous power up Alucard pleads that he shouldn't throw his humanity away, Anderson guesses correctly that Alucard never wanted to become a vampire and that "monsters shouldn't cry"]].
