** Lucy's outfits; for some reason Eiko Ishioka decided that her wardrobe would be themed around ''reptiles.'' This is fine for her serpent dress, but then we get her highly revealing nightdress, complete with flowing scarves and done in various shades of orange. And then there's her wedding dress, which was based on a frill necked lizard...

* FashionVictimVillain: Dracula at the beginning of the movie. While the red robe is fine, the hairdo just looks silly.

* {{Steampunk}}: Part of Dracula's Castle bridges and battlements are made with riveted steel trusses set in concrete. Both are mid 19th century inventions. Impossible to build such things in the Middle Ages when Dracula became undead.

* VindicatedByHistory: Divisive in its year of release, albeit commercially very successful, two decades hence, it is considered a classic of visual effects, production design, cinematography, and style, with many considering it one of Coppola's best films and one of Creator/GaryOldman's best performances. While there are still complaints and issues raised about the nature of its adaptation, it's generally agreed that it was a movie that proved that there's still a lot of new ways to tell a story as overexposed as ''Dracula'' by going back to the source material.

It's overall visual style has become quite famous and influential, especially in the popular ''VideoGame/{{Bloodborne}}''.

* DesignatedVillain: The vampire hunters receive this treatment towards the end, if Van Helsing's comment about them becoming "God's madmen" is any indication. It may mean that their quest had led to [[spoiler:Quincey's death]], but it also may comes across as a HeelRealization as if they became [[KnightTemplar fanatics trying to stay between true love]]... Except the monster they were trying to destroy wasn't necessarily innocent himself and they wanted to spare an innocent woman from suffering the same fate as her best friend suffered, whom the three men were in love to.

** Old!Dracula's butt hairdo, ruthlessly parodied by Mel Brooks in ''Film/DraculaDeadAndLovingIt'', by ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'' in "[[Recap/TheSimpsonsS5E5TreehouseOfHorrorIV Treehouse of Horror IV]]" and by Genndy Tartakovsky and Adam Sandler in ''WesternAnimation/HotelTransylvania2'', is the flagship of the narm in this movie. Summed to his fabulous red robe and rubber-like white face, it turns the character's introduction scene into a potential source of hysterical laughter regardless of the viewer's intention.
