- Batman Vampire was a trilogy of tales told under DC's alternate-universe Elseworlds label, in which Batman fought Dracula, becoming a vampire himself in the process. Dracula himself is only the first's part villain though, with the following sequels dealing with the consequences of his plan.
- Batgirl: In one issue, Batgirl and Supergirl fought twenty four Draculas. They escaped from movies.
- In Marvel Comics Dracula has at some point fought nearly everyone, as well as holding down his own popular title, The Tomb of Dracula for years. He's fought (deep breath) Doctor Strange, Blade, The Frankenstein Monster, Jack Russell from Werewolf by Night, other miscellaneous monster-hunter characters, the X-Mennote , Doctor Doom, Captain Britain and MI13,note Spider-Man, the Incredible Hulk, Monica Rambeau of The Avengers, and Thor. Thor has even fought Dracula when the latter was amped by the blood of a god, and Dracula's also come close to curb-stomping Silver Surfer! (Who was admittedly having a rough day.) The only person that really gave Drac trouble was Apocalypse - and even then, Dracula would have killed him, but for the intervention of Abraham Van Helsing. Oh and of course Deadpool who wooed and married a potential powerful bride for him.
- In the Army of Darkness comics, Ash fights Dracula in the storyline appropriately named "Ash vs. Dracula".
- Superman once fought a Dracula expy that he defeated by letting the pseudo-Drac bite him (he's solar powered; apparently, his blood stores sunlight).
- Planetary's Elijah Snow. One of the most humiliating for Dracula, Snow simply froze him solid and then smashed him to pieces with a Groin Attack.
- Dracula vs. Zorro. Linkara highly recommends it.
- Dracula is sent back in time by Satan to destroy King Arthur in Dracula vs. King Arthur.
- Solomon Kane fought Dracula in a pair of interconnected tales that ran in Dracula Lives and Savage Sword of Conan.
- Santa fights him for control of the North Pole in the aptly named Santa Versus Dracula
- Dracula is an enemy regularly fought by Vampirella with his backstory being retconned into him having the same origin as Vampi's, being an alien from a vampire planet rather than a Romanian warlord.
- Unsurprisingly, he also appears in American Vampire, though he is faced by the supporting cast in a limited miniseries focused on them rather than the primary characters Pearl or Skinner.
- Victoria Undead II: Sherlock Holmes vs Dracula is, well, just that with Holmes and Watson coming across the cast from the Dracula novel who are currently engaged in trying to stop him.
- In the Top Cow crossover Monster War, Dracula fought against its heroes The Darkness, Witchblade, the Magdalena and Lara Croft. Unusually for this trope, Drac was not the Big Bad, but rather The Dragon to Mr. Hyde.
- Occurs in the second book of Child of the Storm. Dracula tries to kidnap Carol in order to get her blood, which he believes will make him (and any other vampires he sires from then on) immune to sunlight. When Harry tries to intervene, he hands the young demigod his arse. Word of God is that he's based on Charles Dance-this is a Vampire Monarch who earned the Red Baron of "the Impaler" long before he was turned, and is a Physical God with the power and skill to match Thor in one-on-one combat. However, Harry and his friends are able to pull a Kansas City Shuffle and distract him long enough to snatch Carol, and then he scarpers when fellow Physical Gods Thor, Loki, and the Hulk-all of whom are very protective of Harry-show up.
- Billy The Kid vs. Dracula: Yes, this is a real movie. Oddly enough, the vampire has a different name in the movie, making the title a little misleading.
- Dracula is the Big Bad of Blade: Trinity. Fitting, since he was one of comic incarnation Blade's main adversaries.
- Bonnie and Clyde vs. Dracula: After a heist goes wrong, outlaw couple Bonnie and Clyde crash a mansion inhabited by the recently revived Dracula.
- In Abbott and Costello Meet Frankenstein, the Wolf Man fights Dracula.
- Emmanuelle vs. Dracula: Buxom beauty Emmanuelle uses her sexual charms to help save her friends from being attacked by bloodsucking vampires. Though she spends most of the film dealing with a male vampire who isn't Dracula, as well as her transformed friends. Dracula himself doesn't show up until the last 10 minutes of the movie, to take the credit for everything that happened.
- The Librarian faces off against vampires in the third film, The Curse of the Judas Chalice. Dracula is their leader, but is pretending to be someone else.
- El Santo takes on Dracula in two of his films, Santo en El Tesoro de Drácula and Santo y Blue Demon contra Drácula y el Hombre Lobo.
- Sherlock Holmes matches wits with Dracula in the 1978 novel Sherlock Holmes vs. Dracula; or the Adventure of the Sanguinary Count by Loren D. Estleman.
- Another Holmes/Dracula clash is recorded in Fred Saberhagen's The Holmes-Dracula File. Although it ends up being played with, since Dracula in this continuity is subject to Alternate Character Interpretation and is less evil than typically thought, and Holmes's antagonism rests mainly on a misunderstanding; once it's cleared up, the two end up working together.
Live Action TV
- Buffy the Vampire Slayer: In season five, Buffy fights Dracula. Neither of them really wins: Buffy is unable to kill him, but she does manage to shoo him out of Sunnydale.

- Penny Dreadful: (One of the) Big Bads of the entire series is Dracula. Vanessa, Ethan, and most of the main cast go up against him directly in Season Three, but no one manages to defeat him.

- In NetHack, Dracula is a mandatory boss. Unfortunately, he's not much stronger than a normal vampire lord, a trivial enemy at this point, so many players sometimes just kill him with candy bars or other such "Vladsbanes", as they are called by the fanbase. Or just kill him in a single hit with cockatrice corpses or a blessed +7 Grayswandir.
