    Dracula 

Dracula

Voiced by: Adam Sandler

    Jonathan 

Jonathan

Voiced by: Andy Samberg

  • Accidental Pervert: Jonathan puts his hand through a female skeleton's rib cage, much to her indignation. Later, Dracula and Jonathan walk in on the same female skeleton in the shower and two fleas on their honeymoon.
  • Adorkable: He's an American surfer-dude backpacker klutz who tends to ramble about random anecdotes from his travels, geeks out over the monsters (once he's through being terrified of them), is quite considerate of the feelings of others, and is a hopeless romantic. Mavis practically lampshades this trait when talking to Dracula:
    Mavis: "Phffft! No, come on, Dad, he's so weird and awkward, it's like 'are you an idiot or do you know you're adorable?'"
  • Blithe Spirit: For the hotel.
  • Butt Monkey
  • Catch Phrase: "Just gotta roll with it."
  • Chekhov's Gag: Jonathan's smelly old shirt.
  • Cool Loser: He can play really good with a guitar.
  • The Ditz: Comes hand and hand with also being The Fool.
  • Fanboy: Of some of the most famous monsters like Frankenstein, Dracula, the Invisible Man.
  • Fiery Redhead: Averted. He likes to have fun, but is generally laid back.
  • The Fool: He seems to be fine with taking a picture of a couple that's crying, adventuring through a "spooky forest", and following a trail of zombies on fire to an "awesome castle". He is also seemingly completely unafraid of Dracula though this is because he thinks the hotel is having a costume party when he first shows up.
  • Frankenstein's Monster: Not really, but he dressed like one.
  • Freaky Is Cool: After getting over his initial terror of being trapped in a hotel of monsters, he wants to stay.
  • Generic Guy: Johnny may act as the Blithe Spirit, but besides that and his love of monsters, there's really nothing "unique" about him as a whole.
  • Idiot Hero: Well, more like "Idiot Deuteragonist". Just see his entry in The Fool section.
  • In-Series Nickname: Goes by either "Johnny" or "Jonathan".
  • Interspecies Romance: With Mavis. He's a human, she's a vampire.
  • Keet: Always full of energy and life.
  • Lovable Coward: Can't blame him for being initially terrified of Hotel Transylvania.
  • Love at First Sight: With Mavis.
  • Magnetic Hero: His good-natured attitude allows him to win many people over, even ones who greatly dislike him at first.
  • Manic Pixie Dream Guy: For Mavis.
  • Mayfly-December Romance: Mavis is just coming of age by vampire standards, but she's older than any living human and will long outlive Jonathan unless he becomes a vampire himself, which is only vaguely touched uponnote  as a possibility.
  • Messy Hair: Johnny's hair is curly, spiky, and appears to be regularly uncombed.
  • Nice Guy: Laid-back, confident, thoughtful, and a romantic.
  • One Of These Is Not Like The Others: He is the only human in Dracula's fake town.
  • Red-Headed Hero: Curly, red hair and the deuteragonist.
  • Token Human: The only human of the main characters.
  • Youthful Freckles: To show his fun-loving character.

Winnie
