* IAmNotShazam: Lord Byron himself actually calls the monster Frankenstein at one point, and Pretorius is quick to dub the new female monster "[[TitleDrop the bride of Frankenstein]]".

** The elderly couple at the beginning, who previously lost their daughter to the monster and end up losing their lives here because of the man's thirst for closure. Although he ends up [[NobodyCouldSurviveThat being proven right]] when he tries to make sure that the monster is really dead, he ends up going by himself and puts himself in a precarious position for the monster to drown him like he did with his daughter. And then his wife ends up helping the monster get out of the sewer (thinking it's her husband) only to be flung down by the monster when she recognizes him.

* CrazyAwesome: Dr. Praetorius (Ernest Thessiger) is a CampGay MadScientist who grows [[PeopleJars tiny people in jars]], does not so much tinker in God's domain as wage open war against him, dreams of creating a race of monsters and interrupts his grave robbing to hold cozy picknics with Frankenstein's monster in the crypt. To put it another way, this is a MadScientist who scares ''Dr. Frankenstein''.
