* FanNickname: '''Dr. Orpheus: The Movie''' from those who noticed a comparison between Dracula and Mavis to Dr. Orpheus and his daughter Triana from WesternAnimation/TheVentureBrothers. Both are single dads with a LargeHam nature, Orpheus has been mistaken for Dracula, both daughters are a PerkyGoth with short hair, a short skirt, and striped stockings, and both girls have an Adorkable love interest.

* MoneyDearBoy: GenndyTartakovsky has made no secret that the only reason he took the job initially was because he needed work after ''WesternAnimation/SymBionicTitan'' was canceled, although he has also said he's happy with the movie and was excited to do the sequel.

* TheOtherMarty: MileyCyrus was originally cast to voice Mavis, but she left the project to concentrate on her music, and was replaced with SelenaGomez.
* SavedFromDevelopmentHell: The film was first pitched in 2002, started development in 2006, and went through 5 other directors before Genndy was brought, by which point so much had already been rendered that it was, as he put it, "like coming onto a live action set." He was given the task of rewriting, redesigning the characters, and re-supervising the animation all in under a year. The DVD commentary mostly consists of Genndy explaining all the creative hurdles they had to do when recycling pre-existing set pieces for new scenes, since they had no time to create new models. When he was made director, the film finally started to come together and was given a release date in 2012.
* WhatCouldHaveBeen: Jonathan was intended at one point to be the last descendant of Abraham Van Helsing, which would have created a even bigger conflict between him and Dracula. It is not known when this plot point was dropped.

Added DiffLines:

* MissingTrailerScene: Some scenes are altered.
** In the first trailer, when Jonathan first enters the hotel, he loudly says "Hello?", a shocked Dracula says "A human!" and Jonathan says "What is this place?" In the movie the animation is the same, but the characters don't say anything until Dracula traps Jonathan in the revolving door.
** Also, in the scene where Dracula and Jonathan are in the {{tunnel network}} and have the {{accidental pervert}} moment with the skeleton in the shower, Jonathan is dressed like his normal human self. The movie version of the scene has him wearing his "Johnnystein" monster disguise.
** The Bigfoot who causes the clogged toilet problem had white fur with blue hands and feet in all the trailers. He's brown in the final version, probably because so many people said he looked more like the Yeti.
** The silhouetted montage of all the monsters of the world beginning their travels to the hotel from their respective hideouts is cut from the final film.
** One trailer showed the scene where one of the suit of armor gets [[GroinAttack kicked between the legs]], making it look like Jonathan did it when it actually was Quasimodo.
** The scene with Dracula going down the hall with the shrunken heads has some difference to the voices between the trailer and the movie.
** At no point does Dracula try to convince Johnny that this is just a normal hotel, unlike in the trailer.

* ActorAllusion: Both [[Music/CeeLoGreen Murray]] and [[Music/SelenaGomez Mavis]] singing at the end.
** Don't forget about [[Creator/AdamSandler Dracula]] singing and [[Music/TheLonelyIsland Jonathan]] rapping.
** And Selena Gomez dealing with a [[Series/WizardsOfWaverlyPlace bunch of monsters]] before.
** Frankenstein saying [[DentedIron he's past the age for scaring people anymore,]] which was a complaint of Kevin James' character in ''Film/GrownUps''.
* {{Celebrity Voice Actor}}: With Creator/{{Adam Sandler}} playing as the owner of Hotel Transylvania, {{Dracula}}. As Dracula bears more than a passing resemblance to Sandler himself, this overlaps with InkSuitActor. Others include:

** CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming: [[PassingTheTorch Very likely Miley recommended Selena herself, which if true]] [[FandomRivalry would debunk the idea of a rivalry between the two]].

* EveryoneOwnsAMac: All the cell phones that appear in the movies are iPhones. This is averted with the computer stationed on the Hotel Transylvania check-in lobby desk in the sequel, which is a product-placed VAIO.
