* ThePhantomOfTheOpera, as well as the two other sides of his [[TriangRelations love triangle]].

* ThePhantomOfTheOpera, as well as the two other sides of his [[TriangRelations love triangle]]. But tread lightly when adapting him so as to avoid taking too much inspiration from Andrew Lloyd Webber's musical, which ''is'' under copyright.

* Several of Creator/HPLovecraft's characters, including Herbert West and Randolph Carter. Additionally, Lovecraft actually encouraged other writers to use the Franchise/CthulhuMythos in other works, thus making the mythos in general, and such characters as Cthulhu, and Yog-Sothoth are essentially in the public domain. (Only "Dagon" (1919) and "Nyarlathotep" (1920) are undeniably public domain in the United States.)

** Some research has suggested that later Lovecraft stories, produced during the time when copyright had to be renewed, were not renewed, making more characters out of copyright; this hasn't yet been tested in court.
