* ChekhovsGun: Well, pretty much all items you pick up during the story. But the most important one is when Alexander comes across a napkin with a odd drawing on it drawn by Devlin before hand. [[spoiler:We later find out this was his plan to subdue Dracula via a room full off crosses. Alexander uses it himself after Devlin is killed.]]

Added DiffLines:

* FaceRevealingTurn: Alexander has one dream where he sees Anisette on the streets at night. When he calls out to her, she turns to him revealing she's now pale-faced, has unkempt hair, an almost zombie-ish expression and most importantly, blood spilling out of her mouth. She then promptly turns into a wolf and attacks him, which causes him to wake up.

* IdiotBall: A lot of instances in the game seems to grant Alexander the Idiot Ball as he doesn't seem to put two and two together between cutscene and journal entry writing, making him seem more like an idiot

* IdiotBall: When Alexander first writes to Father Janos and receives the Bowie knife as a response, he explicitly says "Quincey" to himself, and goes even further on that note when he tears Jonathan Harker a new one in his office. If you then choose to write Father Janos a new telegram, he asks in the message, "What is the significance of the knife?" Uhh...

The game was pretty much [[TrialAndErrorGameplay trial and error]], as you were required to move around the city under a strict time limit and visit different areas to gain information while in others you needed certain items on hand to move on. Failure to have such at a crucial moment would lead into death. Say the least, this is one of those games where you really have to pay attention. Still, it helps that the acting (like pretty much all FMV games) was very hammy.

* CatapultNightmare: Alexander has at least three of these through the story. Basiclly serving as warnings of the vampire threat he's facing.

* HaveANiceDeath: [[http://www.mobygames.com/game/dos/dracula-unleashed/screenshots/gameShotId,216920/ The Game Over screen has a picture of your grave and a bat with blood on its lip hanging from a tree over it.]] This is either Alexander now a bloodthirsty vampire himself or of course just Dracula mocking you.

''Dracula Unleashed'' was a FullMotionVideo game developed by Creator/ICOMSimulations and released in 1993. It acts as a sequel to the story ''Literature/{{Dracula}}'' (obviously) taking place several years after the book's events. You play as Alexander Morris, a relative of Quincy Morris, who comes to London to find out about Quincy's death and wed his sweetheart Annisette Brown.

* NonstandardGameOver: At one point, Alexander and Helsing go to visit Reinfield for information, and being the madman he is, he goes to attack the latter. You need an item to beat him back before he kills the professor. If he succeeds, you have to restart from the last checkpoint, as Helsing needs to be alive for later.

** Made funnier because Alexander ''[[IdiotBall falls for it]]'' until Van Helsing snaps him out.
This list shows the last 10 events of 34. Show all.
