[[WMG: Victor Frankenstein had bipolar disorder]]
Bipolar disorder can sometimes start in response to a sudden change in one's life, and the death of Frankenstein's mother followed by his leaving to college so soon after, which therefore removed him from the support that his family could have provided, may have triggered the beginning of his disorder. As he builds the creature, he displays typical symptoms of a manic phase, such as not sleeping, being reckless with his knowledge, and lacking attention, such as in his building of the creature as evidenced in how he overlooks detail in its limbs. He then shows many signs of depressive phases afterwards, such as his suicidal thoughts, lack of energy, and withdrawal from socialising and hobbies.

** Considering that The Monster himself is an allegory for Shelley's own stillbirth, it could be a metaphor for considering having another child, but deciding not to risk that pain again. Or it could be reaffirming the Aesop of not playing God.

The Monster admits that it has been living off of nuts and berries, and implies that it does not eat meat. It also has been living in ice caves and other inhospitable regions. Maybe if it got some sunlight, good food, and a warm lace to sleep it could become just as good looking as Frankenstein intended.
* It's eyes ([[UncannyValley the most hideous part of it]]) would still be the same, though.

[[WMG: One of the reasons the Monster is so hideous is because it is malnourished.]]

* In this case, the creature's unusual size might be for more than just convenience of assembly. Perhaps Victor has submissive tendencies and wants a companion who can physically dominate him, or simply finds bigger men appealing, just as many women do. If Victor himself is an average or larger man, his "big men" fetish might well extend to 8-footers.

** My theory was that the entire thing was made up by Walton to entertain himself - as he says how lonely he is - and his sister. Thus not only is the creature not real, nor is Victor.

The monster appeared to be destroyed in each film. At the end of the third, he even appears to be ''melting'' in the molten sulfur pit. Yet in each film he returns seemingly intact, although weakened and needing a boost to get back to full strength. Some of Wolf's examination of the Monster suggests it is nearly indestructible, and some form of HealingFactor seems evident. But the films have a somewhat lax continuity, which can be explained away if one assumes that the monster can repair itself FromASingleCell. At the end of Film/TheGhostOfFrankenstein, Ygor has had his own brain implanted into the Monster's body, only to go blind due to the mismatched blood types. Although the Monster's next appearance in FrankensteinMeetsTheWolfMan was originally going to follow up on this plot with an intelligent, blind monster, it was abandoned (although the monster [[ZombieGait still walks around with his arms outstretched]]; he actually didn't do this before the blindness). Instead the monster is its old dumb and sighted self, and remains so in future films.

* This would also explain some other reversions, such as the creature learning to talk and deciding to destroy itself at the end of Film/BrideOfFrankenstein; future appearances have it mute and lacking such insight again. Every time it is destroyed, it reverts to its original self, losing any CharacterDevelopment it got along the way.
