* CommonKnowledge: While Light is a weakness to Dracula in the original book, it wasn't the outright lethal weakness it became in adaptations like ''Film/{{Nosferatu}}''. It just [[WeakenedByTheLight weakened his powers]] and [[ShapeshifterModeLock robbed him of his shape shifting abilities]] while exposed to it.

* WhatCouldHaveBeen: According to Stoker's notes, Dracula's castle could have become a CollapsingLair when [[LoadBearingBoss Dracula was killed]]. Ironically the ''VideoGame/{{Castlevania}}'' games would run with the idea decades later.

** Dracula did ''not'' speak with VampireVords in the original book--in fact, the story even makes it clear he has SurprisinglyGoodEnglish. The accent would come from later adaptations of the story and parodies of it. And in the original book, Dracula never once said "I vant to suck your blood!" and he wouldn't have been caught [[strike: dead]] undead saying "Bleh, bleh bleh!" The original Dracula was far too proud of a character to speak in such a manner or accent.

Part of the reason he invited Jonathan was to practice his English, so he would not stand out as a foreigner when in England.

** His vampire girls were never really called "brides" in the story. They're just simply known as the sisters and that's it. The term came from the 60's movie, "Film/TheBridesOfDracula", that more or less stuck.
