** Also, the hero (or his Detect Evil power) is GenreSavvy enough to keep an open mind when first meeting the so-called monster rather than set up the expected LetsYouAndHimFight scenario.

* ''Literature/MonsterHunterInternational'' has [[spoiler: Agent Franks]], who is ''the'' inspiration for the {{Trope Namer|s}} and {{Trope Maker|s}} and actually met Creator/MaryShelley. He disagrees with some of the novel's things though, saying it makes him sound emo. [[spoiler: Although technically, he's a FallenAngel who took over that body for himself when he found it empty.]]

* ''Film/VanHelsing'' featured Frankenstein's creature as a mixture of the 1930s Karloff version (his appearance, except with [[WeCanRebuildHim more mechanical parts]]) and Shelley's far more eloquent creation. He was also a sympathetic GentleGiant created as part of Dracula's EvilPlan to resurrect his born-dead vampire children. What's more, he's just called "the monster" or "the creature".

* ''ComicBook/{{Zombo}}'': Zombo, kinda. He was specifically designed as a one-of-his-kind experiment to create a zombie that would obey human commands. He's far friendlier than the regular bunch, since he'll at least ask you if he can eat your brains.

* The "standard" appearance of the monster, usually consisting of a square head, greenish skin, enormous proportions, a scarred [[ScaryStitches or stitched]] forehead, and bolts (actually electrodes) on either side of the neck. (To contrast, the most monstrous features of the novel's creature were his [[UncannyValley proportions and his jaundiced, soulless eyes]].) Nowadays this is a DiscreditedTrope, but can still be seen in spoofs and other comedic interpretations.

* In ''Manga/SoulEater'' Dr. Franken Stein (First name Franken, last name Stein) is a (barely) good guy who literally has a giant screw loose in his head; he constantly is tightening it. Obsessed with vivisection (he has taken his own body apart and stitched it back together), the very concept of insanity, and the nature of knowledge of man in respect to God; he's an amalgamation of Frankenstein's Monster and Dr. Frankenstein himself. Being clever, the writers eventually give him a partner named Mary.

** ''Technically'', unless fan translations are consistently wrong, Stein's partner is named 'Marie'. Just to clarify.
*** Because "Marie" Shelley wrote ''Frankenstein'', right?

* In TabletopGame/{{Mortasheen}}, [[http://www.bogleech.com/mortasheen/victrossus.htm Victrossus]] is definitely created with this trope in mind. It deals with the "brain" aspect a bit interestingly, as Victrossus is normally mostly brainless, with a neural "ladder" controlling its basic functions. But, it is meant to have a brain put in it, and enslaved by said neural "ladder" for their master to control it for their whims.
