* ActorAllusion:
** Kate Beckinsale's character hunts [[Film/{{Underworld}} vampires]].
** Hugh Jackman [[Film/X2XMenUnited plays the role]] of grim loner with no memory of who he was, faces an enemy who knows him and his forgotten past and taunts him for it, and [[Film/XMenTheLastStand clutches the dead body of his love, killed by his own hands, while howling uncontrollably]]. He also [[spoiler:turns into a [[{{Wolverine}} werewolf]].]]
** Silvia Collocca (Verona) has often been compared to fellow Italian actress Monica Bellucci. It can't be a coincidence that Collocca is playing the same character Bellucci played in ''Film/BramStokersDracula''.
* HeyItsThatGuy:
** [[Series/NewTricks Brian "Memory" Lane]] is the cardinal who gives Van Helsing his missions.
** [[Film/{{Underworld}} Selene]] has become a vampire hunter.
** [[Film/TheLordOfTheRings Faramir]] is Friar Carl
** [[Film/MissionImpossible Hugh Stamp]] is Dracula!
** Even as Igor, [[Film/TheMummy1999 Beni]] still finds it hard to believe that [[LaserGuidedKarma he'll get his]].
* HilariousOuttakes: Ones that {{lampshade| hanging}} almost every single facet of the film.
* SpiritualLicensee: This movie is very, ''very'' ''Franchise/{{Castlevania}}''. Namely when Dracula turns into a bat-demon (cue "Dance of Illusion").
* StillbornFranchise: There were plans for a sequel and a spinoff TV series, ''Transylvania'', but they were scrapped in light of the lower-than-expected box office and mostly bad reviews.
* TropeNamer: DoUntoOthersBeforeTheyDoUntoUs was named after Igor's line.
