* ''CountYorga '': MGM's somewhat 70's modern take on Dracula. The character name is different but the premise is roughly the same.

* Was one of Duck's summer camp bullies in ''Webcomic/DeadDuck''. Here he's portrayed as a lizard like creature (since his name also means "Dragon").

* ''Webcomic/''{{Monstra}}'' has [[spoiler: him as a character called "Lil D" and stuck in the body of a child due to his former wife, Lilith, casting a spell on him for trying to take over the world and putting her in a long deep sleep when she objected. She'll only remove it after he's learned his lesson and given up the conquest since monsters have long since evolved with human society, but he's rather stubborn to admit it.]]

* Frank Wildhorn's ''Dracula: the Musical'' played on Broadway for a few months in 2004, where it flopped massively. It has, however, had some success in Europe. For the most part it stuck very close to the plotline of the original novel, only to go off on another road completely for the last five minutes of the show, in which Dracula randomly decides that he is far too in love with Mina to take her from her mortal life. In the Broadway version, the story was kept in the Victorian era, but it was updated to the 1950's for the Swiss production.

And there are a few visions were Mina is implied to have been turned into a vampire.

* ''Series/DaVincisDemons'' features an episode with Da Vinci searching for an Ottoman cartographer, who was captured by Vlad the Impaler. Vlad is shown not directly as an vampire, but has a pact with the devil and seems very hard to kill.
** [[spoiler: After being impaled, burned and thrown out of the highest tower of his castle, his corpse has apparently vanished when Da Vinci and his friends later come to the place where it should be. It's not explained if he had survived.]]

Added DiffLines:

* ''Literature/Department19'' runs with the conceit that the events of Bram Stoker's novel were mostly true, and that the men responsible for vanquishing Dracula founded the vampire-hunting Blacklight organization. Dracula in this case is explicitly UsefulNotes/VladTheImpaler, and his turned warlords are the most powerful remaining vampires in the world. [[spoiler: Until Dracula himself is resurrected at the end of the first book, becoming the BigBad of the series.]]

** 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.
