->''"The zombies were having fun\\
The party had just begun\\
The guests included Wolf Man\\
Dracula and his son\\

Igor on chains, backed by his baying hounds\\
The coffin-bangers were about to arrive\\

Hey, wouldn't it be cool if {{Dracula}}, the WolfMan, the {{Mummy}}, FrankensteinsMonster, [[FishPeople Gillman]], and all those other classic monsters hung out?

Short version: Yes. [[RuleOfCool Yes, it would.]]

This is prevalent in a setting where the heroes live on WorldOfWeirdness as part of a FantasyKitchenSink with a sprawling CrossoverCosmology, especially if they themselves are supernatural. The creatures, rather than become shut-ins, never leaving their designated niche or dark corner of the world... ''socialize''. The Vampires and Werewolves, though [[FurAgainstFang antagonistic]], agree to hold up a mutual {{Masquerade}} against humans. [[TheFairFolk Fairies]] and ghosts work together to scare local homeowners. And the wizards work with all of them to SaveBothWorlds.

This is a common subtrope of CastOfExpies, where many characters in a specific work are lifted from earlier works.

On a personal level, individuals of these groups might [[RagtagBunchOfMisfits form loose bands]] (of {{Player Character}}s, usually) that work towards common goals, hang out, or terrorize humans for fun and profit. Or, if the setting permits, are all in on a secret, ancient conspiracy to control, manipulate, or convert humanity, eventually taking over and enslaving us all! [[EvilLaugh Bla-hahahaha!]]

Named after a song by Bobby "Boris" Pickett and the Crypt-Kickers (quoted above) in 1962 that became famous after being played on Creator/DrDemento's show. Not to be confused with MonsterMunch.

You can expect all this canoodling to result in a HybridMonster sooner or later.

A SubTrope of MassiveMultiplayerCrossover. SuperTrope to AllGhoulsSchool, where the monsters (either the younger versions of them or their children) all go to school together. They are often the citizens of a {{Halloweentown}}.



* The UsefulNotes/GeneralMills "Monster Cereals" - ''Count Chocula'', ''Frankenberry'', ''Boo Berry'', and the lesser known ''Fruit Brute'' and ''Yummy Fruity Mummy''.
* Promotional material for the Ride/DisneyThemeParks during the Halloween season often features WesternAnimation/MickeyMouse and his associates as classic monsters. Mickey as a vampire, Minnie as a witch, WesternAnimation/DonaldDuck as a Wolf Duck or devil, and WesternAnimation/{{Goofy}} as a Frankenstein monster seem to be the most common.
* This old [[https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=WbPmvOORkEI Pepsi Halloween commercial]] features Frankenstein's monster bringing Pepsi and Doritos to a party of monsters hosted by Dracula.
* 2017/2018 commercials for Spectrum (a cable provider in the eastern United States) feature a group of creatures who try to live normal lives...except they constantly run into problems with their satellite television. So far, we've seen a demon, a mad scientist, a mummy, husband and wife vampires, a werewolf, the Grim Reaper, and even a possessed ventriloquist's dummy.

[[folder:Anime and Manga]]
* ''Anime/MagicalPokaan'' has a vampire, a werewolf, a witch and a RobotGirl as flatmates. And they're {{Cute Monster Girl}}s, to boot.
** They also have a caretaker of sorts - an invisible ghost named Cammy. In one of the special episodes, she appears as a nurse wrapped in bandages, so possibly invoking The Mummy or The Invisible Man.
* ''Manga/RosarioToVampire'' has a vampire, two witches, an ice woman, and a succubus as part of the UnwantedHarem and a werewolf as their sempai, with just about every other monster you can think of as antagonists. There's even a ShoutOut to a famous monster ''hunter'': at one point UnluckyEverydude Tsukune is given a whip that apparently was owned by [[Franchise/{{Castlevania}} Simon Belmont himself]].
* ''Manga/MahouSenseiNegima'' has a vampire, a CuteGhostGirl, a RobotGirl, and a half-bird demon in Negi's class, as well as a half-dog demon as his closest male friend.
** As of Chapter 294 you can add another half-demon and a demon.
* The Thriller Bark of ''Manga/OnePiece'' has a mansion filled with Zombies that do double duty as [[FrankensteinsMonster Frankenstein's Monsters]], an {{invisible}} {{Mix and Match Critter|s}}, a CuteGhostGirl who controls ghosts instead of being one, a MadScientist, and their leader, who bears a striking resemblance to a {{Vampire}}, has a special ability that renders its targets unable to touch sunlight without burning up.
** The Punk Hazard arc adds a new roster of monsters: Centaurs, satyrs, dragons, a harpy and a BlobMonster.
* ''Manga/PrincessResurrection'' has vampires, werewolves, robot girls and a demonic princess as the main cast. Most of the above are living in the same house.
* With a name like ''Manga/MonsterSoul'', one would say it's about oh um...monsters? =P
* ''Manga/{{Legendz}}'' is a {{Mons}} series where all the creatures are based on monsters of folklore, myth, and urban legend.
* ''Manga/{{Cowa}}'' is set in a world where humans, monsters and PettingZooPeople coexist. The main characters are a half vampire/half koala-man hybrid, a shapeshifting ghost, another creature that resembles Gillman and a human sumo wrestler.
* in ''Manga/{{Hellsing}}'', Millennium -- the bad guys -- are a Nazi half-vampire army whose leadership includes a cyborg, a MadScientist, a werewolf, a catboy with quantum-related powers, a MasterOfIllusion witch and a magical sharpshooter. Dracula is there too, but he's ''[[VillainProtagonist the good guy]]''.
* ''Magetsukan Kitan''
* ''Manga/HellsAngels'' and its AnimatedAdaptation ''Hells'' are set, surprise surprise, in Hell, where the recently deceased (?) main character attends an AllGhoulsSchool. Among her classmates there are a vampire, a four-armed mummy, a gillwoman, a witch and a female Phantom of the Opera based upon ''Film/PhantomOfTheParadise''.
* ''Kaibutsu-kun'', another one of Creator/FujikoFujio's works, is about a young shapeshifting prince accompanied by Dracula, Frankenstein (here called Franken), and Wolfman living out in the human world and meeting other monsters.
* ''Manga/FairyTail'': The Monster Academy.
* In ''Manga/DragonBall'' Goku and his friends had to fight the Fortuneteller's champions, which consisted of a vampire, an invisible man, a mummy, a devil and a ghost (actually Grandpa Goku's spirit).

[[folder:Card Games]]
* While ''TabletopGame/MagicTheGathering'' has always had its share of vampires, ghosts, zombies, and other things that go bump in the night, the ''Innistrad'' block takes place on a plane directly inspired by GothicHorror.
* ''Monsters Party: Voodoo Madness'' an internationally distributed card game made by Costa Ricans is based on the Monster Mash motif including the basic classic monsters like a Vampire Girl, Frankenstein's Monster, a Mummy, a Zombie and a were-wolf.
* ''TabletopGame/SmashUp'' featured, as one of its numerous expansions, the very appropriately named ''Monster Smash'', starring Werewolves, Vampires, Mad Scientists (guest starring Frankenstein's Monster and Igor), and Giant Ants as new factions. The base game already had Aliens and Zombies, and other expansions added in Ghosts, Kaiju, Dragons and [[Literature/TheShadowOverInnsmouth Innsmouth's]] Fish People inhabitants.

* Occurs in several forms in Creator/MarvelComics:
** ''ComicBook/MarvelZombies 4'' revolves around ComicBook/{{Morbius}} [[OurVampiresAreDifferent the Living Vampire]], [[ComicBook/WerewolfByNight Werewolf]] [[OurWerewolvesAreDifferent by Night]], [[DarkMagicalGirl Jennifer Kale]], [[TheAntiChrist Daimon Hellstrom]], ComicBook/ManThing, [[OurDemonsAreDifferent Dormammu]], and eventually [[PowersViaPossession The Hood]] teaming up to fight against [[FishPeople Pirahna]], [[EverythingsDeaderWithZombies The Zombie]], and [[NinjaPirateRobotZombie Deadpool's]] [[CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass severed]] [[HandicappedBadass head]], which, by the way, is the most dangerous entity in the series. Yes, a severed head racks up one of the largest bodycounts in a ZombieApocalypse.
** The Fin Fang Four is made up of classic Marvel monsters who represent cornerstones of ''giant'' monster movies. Fin Fang Foom (giant reptile/dragon), Googam (alien conqueror), Gorgilla (giant ape/gillman), and Elektro (giant robot).
** In the universe known as Earth-666 Comicbook/TheAvengers comprise [[Comicbook/CaptainAmerica Capwolf]], [[Comicbook/ThePunisher Frankencastle]], Comicbook/{{Wolverine}} Lord of Vampires, Ice Mummy Comicbook/{{Thor}}, BigCreepyCrawlies Comicbook/SpiderMan and Comicbook/BlackWidow, Demonic Comicbook/{{Daredevil}}, hawkheaded Comicbook/{{Hawkeye}} and Brother Voodoo.
** The Howling Commandos have existed in several forms:
*** The original ''Nick Fury's Howling Commandos'' featured a [[StealthPun werewolf]], a half-vampire and half-werewolf, a mummy, a clone of the Frankenstein monster, a gorilla with a human brain, and a zombie. Brother Voodoo and Satanna also join in on the fun. These are just the main, active members; the Howlers are indicated to employ just about every monster in the Marvel universe, including Lilith, daughter of Dracula, and ''both'' Abominable Snowmen (the cursed prospector and the representative of an entire yeti species, of course). A ''ComicBook/WerewolfByNight'' letter column featured a fan post in which the author made a joke about a Nick Fury[=/=]Jack Russell team-up called "Sgt. Furry and His Growling Commandos". Funny how that joke later became reality, in some sense of the word: ComicBook/NickFury actually never appeared in ''Nick Fury's Howling Commandos''; it was more a MythologyGag name and a pun on the monstrous nature of the team.
*** The ''ComicBook/SecretWars2015'' event features the title ''Mrs. Deadpool and the Howling Commandos'', which is made up of Shiklah, Werewolf by Night, N'Kantu the Living Mummy, the Invisible Man, Frankenstein's Monster, Man-Thing, and Marcus the minotaur with a symbiote trying to overthrow Dracula.
*** One of the titles of ''ComicBook/AllNewAllDifferentMarvel'' is ''Howling Commandos of S.H.I.E.L.D.'' and features [[OurWerewolvesAreDifferent Warwolf]], Vampire by Night, Hit Monkey, Teen Abomination, zombie Jasper Sitwell, Manphibian, robot Dum Dum Dugan, Orrgo, and Man-Thing.
** The group known as the Legion of Monsters has also gone through several incarnations:
*** The name was first used as the title of a 70s comic and featured swamp monster ComicBook/ManThing, demon Comicbook/GhostRider, vampire ComicBook/{{Morbius}}, and ComicBook/WerewolfByNight. This group didn't exactly work together yet and mostly just fought each other.
*** The name made a comeback with the new Legion of Monsters introduced in the 2010s, in which every original member but Ghost Rider returns, in addition to N'Kantu the Living Mummy, gillman Manphibian, MoleMen-like Moloids, classic Marvel monster Orggo, and ThePunisher as a Frankenstein's Monster.
*** A later version of the Legion of Monsters appeared in ''Comicbook/{{Daredevil}}'' and featured Satanna, N'Kantu, Werewolf by Night, the original Frankenstein's Monster, and the zombie Simon Garth. The term "Monster Mash" is even used to describe them in the recap page of ''Daredevil'' #33.
** In ''Spider Island 2'', a tie-in to ''Comicbook/{{Secret Wars| 2015}} III'', Agent Venom turns the spider versions of Captain America into a werewolf, Captain Marvel into a vampire, Hulk into a lizardman, and Iron Man into a Green Goblin to free them from Spider Queen's control
* In a parody one-shot story ''Illegal Aliens'' (not related in any way to the [[Literature/IllegalAliens book of the same name]]), a group of underemployed monsters from classic Universal Studiosí films forms an alliance to wipe out new amazingly popular [[Franchise/AlienVsPredator alien creatures]], because [[PunBasedTitle they took away their jobs]] in the movie industry. The comic ends with [[spoiler:all monsters being smashed by... Godzilla.]]
* The eponymous rock band in the DCU comic ''ComicBook/ScareTactics'' had a vampire lead singer, a werewolf on lead guitar, a snake-boy on bass guitar, and a walking pile of sludge for a drummer.
* DC also had several groups under the name ''The Creature Commandos'': the first group (an extreme experiment in psychological warfare during World War II) was made up of Lt. Matthew Shrieve (normal), Warren Griffith (Werewolf), Sgt. Vincent Velcro (Vampire), Pvt. Elliot "Lucky" Taylor (Frankenstein's monster) and Dr. Myrra Rhodes (Medusa). They often teamed up with fellow ''Weird War Tales'' headliner GI Robot. Of some note is the fact that though Shrieve was "normal", he was quite explicitly [[HumansAreTheRealMonsters the worst of the bunch]]. A reboot in 2000 also featured a gillman, and a new crew introduced in 2003 and never seen again finally added a mummy.
** In the ''Comicbook/{{Flashpoint}}'' timeline, the equivalent group is headed by the [[Comicbook/SevenSoldiers Frankenstein monster]] himself, with Velcoro as the vampire (the spelling of his name changes in modern versions), Griffith as the werewolf, and Nina Mazursky as a gillwoman. Lt. Shrieve fights alongside them in the war.
** DC's 2011 reboot has [[Comicbook/FrankensteinAgentOfSHADE a modern-day version of the team]], featuring Frankenstein, Velcoro, Griffith, Mazursky, Frankenstein's Bride, and Khalis, a mummy.
* ''Urban Monsters'' stars a fishman, a zombie, a satyr, and a sasquatch, in a world with no apparent {{Masquerade}}.
* This also fills out the rest of the cast of the Slave Labor Graphics comic (which ran also in Disney Adventures) called Little Gloomy (alternately titled "The Super Scary Monster Show")
* The titular ''Monster Plus'' is a one-man Monster Mash, being a vampire werewolf mummy zombie Frankenstein's Monster witch doctor. One of his teen sidekicks happens to be Kid Dracula (the other two are normal humans).
* Archie's ''ComicBook/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtlesAdventures'' comic has a one-off villain named Monsterex, who is a fusion of the WolfMan, the Gill Man, FrankensteinsMonster, and a vampire.
* ''ComicBook/IHuntMonsters''...what do you think?
* ''Boneyard'' features a vampire, a gillwoman, a Frankenstein's monster, a werewolf, a demon, a skeleton, and some normal dude. Yeah.
* The original line-up of ''Comicbook/TheLeagueOfExtraordinaryGentlemen'' included Literature/TheInvisibleMan and [[Literature/TheStrangeCaseOfDrJekyllAndMrHyde Mr. Hyde]]. Various other monsters have appeared throughout the series as well, including vampires and {{Eldritch Abomination}}s.
* Frequently used in [[BritishComics British Humour Comics]]:
** Used in the recently reprinted comic strip Number 13 in ''ComicBook/TheBeano'' and in the one-off strip Phone-a-Fiend.
** Fleetway comic strip ''Scream Inn'' and its later spinoff ''[[TheSpooktacularSeven The Spooktacular 7]]'' revolved around a vampiric innkeeper, a zombie maid, a witch, a ghost, a headless man, a skeleton, a devil and a talking spider.
* ''ComicBook/AllGhoulsSchool''
* ''ComicBook/ThePerhapanauts'' is set in a secret agency to deal with otherworldly things, and includes on the team we follow a super-intelligent sasquatch, a ghost, a mothman and a chupacabra.
* Brazilian comic [[ComicBook/MonicasGang Bug-a-Booo]] is set in a graveyard inhabited by [[http://2.bp.blogspot.com/_83SMTvh_Mkg/SvNaj8ERuAI/AAAAAAAAA8c/iUoDcCIy7nc/s400/12.jpg among others]] the title BedsheetGhost character, a clumsy vampire, and [[TheGrimReaper Lady McDeath]].
* Also from Brazil, [[http://www.maniadegibi.com/loja/images/Turma_do_Arrepio_01.jpg A Turma do Arrepio]].
* ''ComicBook/TheBojeffriesSaga'':
** Raoul is a werewolf.
** Festus is a vampire.
** Ginda is a JerkAss StrawFeminist with SuperStrength and super-genius.
** Grandpa is a plant-like EldritchAbomination with reality-warping powers.
** "The baby" is a never-seen radioactive monster kept locked in the cellar.
* ''ComicBook/SantaVersusDracula'' features this as Dracula's main force which include his three vampire brides, a army of undead kids, a werewolf, Igor, The Invisible Man, Frankenstein's Monster and Mr. Hyde. He did have a witch in his group, but she annoys him so he sprays her with beer to make her melt.
* ''ComicBook/RequiemVampireKnight'' takes place in a hellish dimension populated by all sorts of monsters such as vampires, werewolves, ghouls, mummies, ogres, reptilians, twisted mutants and tortured ghosts among others with {{Dracula}} ruling this world as its EvilOverlord. Recent chapters also feature a titanic Frankenstein-like monster being created by mad scientists. The twist is that pretty much all of these monsters were humans that reincarnated in this afterlife in different forms according to their sins, except for the ghosts, who had the misfortune of being killed and victimized by evil people but still get trapped in Hell even if they are innocent, and they can only leave after they kill their tormentor.

[[folder:Films -- Animated]]
* ''WesternAnimation/MonstersVsAliens'': CaptainErsatz versions of [[Film/AttackOfThe50FootWoman the Fifty-Foot Woman]], Film/{{the Fly|1958}}, Film/{{the Blob|1958}}, the Film/CreatureFromTheBlackLagoon, and Film/{{Mothra}} are gathered together to whoop alien butt. TheInvisibleMan also used to be a member of the team.
* ''WesternAnimation/HotelTransylvania''. The main characters are Dracula and his daughter; their friends and guests include a mummy, a werewolf, Frankenstein, witches, an invisible man, a blob, and more. Justified by the title setting being, well, a hotel for monsters.
* The groovy Creator/{{Rankin Bass|Productions}} film ''WesternAnimation/MadMonsterParty'' has Baron von Frankenstein inviting Dracula, the Werewolf, the Invisible Man, Quasimodo, Dr. Jekyll and the Creature from the Black Lagoon to his private island in order to announce his retirement and appoint his successor as head of the Worldwide Organization of Monsters. Creator/TimBurton claims it as an influence on his later works. The film also has a prequel of sorts in ''Mad Mad Mad Monsters'', which had Baron von Frankenstein inviting the other monsters to the wedding of his monster and his new bride.
* The citizens of HalloweenTown in ''WesternAnimation/TheNightmareBeforeChristmas'' include living skeletons, ghosts, zombies, witches, vampires, a werewolf, a BigRedDevil, a MonsterClown and a MadScientist with his stitched-together creation, along with many original monsters.
* In ''WesternAnimation/{{Frankenweenie}}'', the children turn their pets into expies of various classic horror monsters: a vampire-cat, a kaiju-turtle, a werewolf-rat, a mummy-hamster, a bunch of gillman-like sea monkeys, an invisible fish, and of course the main character, a dog resurrected like Frankenstein's Monster.
* The direct-to-video animated movie ''Monster Mash'' lives up to its name- Dracula, Frankenstein, and the Wolfman have to prove that they are still scary while going up against parodies of "modern" monsters: spaghetti-based [[Franchise/ANightmareOnElmStreet Freddie]] [[Franchise/FridayThe13th DeSpaghetti]], killer wind-up doll [[Film/ChildsPlay Chicky]] and the otherworldly [[Film/{{Alien}} Alien Eater]].
* ''WesternAnimation/TheLEGOBatmanMovie'' has a VillainTeamUp of movie monsters including: {{Dracula}}, the {{Mummy}}, [[DemBones Living Skeletons]], the [[Film/ClashOfTheTitans1981 Kraken]], the Film/{{Gremlins}}, the [[Film/TheWizardOfOz Wicked Witch of the East]] and Film/KingKong, among others.
* ''WesternAnimation/MonsterFamily'' is about a family who are inflicted with a BecomingTheCostume curse by Literature/BabaYaga on the orders of Dracula, transforming them into a vampire mother, Frankenstein father, mummy daughter and werewolf son.

[[folder:Films -- Live-Action]]
* ''Film/TheMonsterSquad'': Hey, [[CultClassic wouldn't it be cool]] if {{Dracula}} had a {{Narm}}tastic HoYay moment with FrankensteinsMonster, and the WolfMan [[MemeticMutation had 'nards]]? Oh, and the VirginPower [[MyGirlIsNotASlut sort of fails...]]
* Universal Studios' ''Film/FrankensteinMeetsTheWolfMan'' had, well, FrankensteinsMonster [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin meet the]] WolfMan. This was followed by ''Film/HouseOfFrankenstein'' and ''Film/HouseOfDracula'', each uniting [[Franchise/UniversalHorror their "big three" monsters]] (Drac, Wolfie & F's M) on screen. The series ended... nay, ''climaxed'' with the brilliant parody ''Film/AbbottAndCostelloMeetFrankenstein'', in which Bud and Lou stumble into the House of Dracula and run into not just the Frankenstein monster but Dracula, the Wolf Man, a brain-swapping mad scientist, ''and'' a surprise cameo from [[spoiler: the Invisible Man]]!
* The film ''Film/VanHelsing'' includes Dr. Frankenstein, his monster, Dracula, his brides, several werewolves, Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, and [[TheIgor a certain hunchback]] thrown in for good measure. Van Helsing mentions having fought gargoyles and warlocks in the past, and a deleted scene features a gillman-like creature living in Dracula's castle.
* The ''Film/{{Waxwork}}'' films do this, and also incorporate RealLife baddies like the Marquis de Sade.
** The [[Film/WaxworkIILostInTime second flick]] steps outside the horror genre to include a fantasy EvilOverlord, although horror characters remain in the majority.
* ''Film/TheLeagueOfExtraordinaryGentlemen'', due to the presence of Mr. Hyde and a few others.
* A recurring staple of the ''Wrestling/ElSanto'' series and other MaskedLuchador films.
* ''Film/StanHelsing'' has parodies of [[Franchise/FridayThe13th Jason Voorhees]], [[Franchise/{{Hellraiser}} Pinhead]], [[Franchise/ANightmareOnElmStreet Freddy Krueger]], [[Film/ChildsPlay Chucky]], [[Franchise/{{Halloween}} Michael Myers]], and [[Franchise/TheTexasChainsawMassacre Leatherface]].
* Several legendary creatures decide get together to beat the shit out of each other in a wrestling-style tournament in ''Film/MonsterBrawl''.
* ''Film/HouseOfTheWolfMan'' is an attempt at a Monster Mash in the vein of the classic Universal films.
* ''Film/TheCabinInTheWoods'': [[spoiler:The third act involves Dana and Marty unleashing all of the Controllers' monsters -- which include, among other things, [[EverythingsDeaderWithZombies zombies]], a GiantSpider, a giant cobra, ghosts, a CaptainErsatz of [[Franchise/{{Hellraiser}} Pinhead]], [[AIIsACrapshoot killer robots]], a [[WolfMan werewolf]], masked killers, and a [[OurMermaidsAreDifferent merman]] -- into their base.]] Special mention goes to the [[spoiler:evil unicorn, and the [[Franchise/EvilDead Angry Molesting Tree]].]] [[http://thecabininthewoods.wikia.com/wiki/Category:Monsters Try learning the full list]].
* ''Film/IFrankenstein'' has the Frankenstein monster getting mixed up in a war between gargoyles and demons.
* The 1980 British horror film ''Film/TheMonsterClub'', which starred Vincent Price as a vampire named Eramus who takes a fictional incarnation of horror author R. Chetwynd-Hayes with him to the titular club. He tells him stories about a hybrid monster's encounter with a GoldDigger, a son finding out that his father is a vampire, and a film director meeting a group of ghouls. The film ends with Eramus giving a speech on how HumansAreTheRealMonsters, which impresses the patrons so much that Eramus' human guest is declared an honorary monster and club member.

* The ''Literature/MercyThompson'' series has both friendly and [[FurAgainstFang unfriendly]] fae, werewolves, vampires, witches, sorcerors and walkers (Native American shapeshifters) so far. Wizards, druids and angels are mentioned, and Charles' mother gave him Native American magic similiar to shamanism. The various species don't ''like'' each other -- we are talking TheFairFolk and AlwaysChaoticEvil vamps whose best defector gleefully [[ShootTheDog shoots]] and [[KickTheDog kicks the dog]] -- but there are nastier things out in the night. Like demons or politicians.
* ''Literature/KittyNorville'', likewise, features both friendly and unfriendly [[OurWerewolvesAreDifferent werewolves]] and [[OurVampiresAreDifferent vampires]]. As the [[MeaningfulName ironically named]] main character is a werewolf, you'd expect most of the bloodsuckers to be villains, but she's allied to more than she's made enemies. The werewolf packs and nearest vampire families usually keep a cooperative connection.
** The best example of a Monster Mash in this series is the latest book, ''Kitty's House of Horrors'', where the premise is a reality show starring all the B-list celebrities who are or claim to be supernatural: Kitty the werewolf talk radio host, a werewolf pro wrestler, a were-seal state legislator, a TV medium and stage magician who are both the real thing, a vampire beauty pageant winner, and a psychic supernatural debunker TV show star.
* As of ''Discworld/IShallWearMidnight'', the Ankh-Morpork Police Department has, in addition to various humans: a werewolf, a vampire, a zombie, some gargoyles, a golem, an [[MagiTek imp-based PDA]], a gnome, an [[TheIgor Igor]], a KingIncognito, a [[Myth/GreekMythology Medusa]], many trolls, many dwarves, a Nac Mac Feegle raised by gnomes [[MyFriendsAndZoidberg and Cpl. Nobby Nobbs]].
** And for those of you who haven't read the books, Nobby really does deserve a place on that list. He carries a card, signed by the Patrician of Ankh-Morpork and a local midwife of some skill, stating that, on the balance of probability, Nobby really is a human being. That's all you really need to know about him.
** In ''Discworld/ReaperMan'', before all the monsters started joining the Watch, the Fresh Start Club included two zombies, one [[OurBansheesAreLouder banshee]], one [[ThingsThatGoBumpInTheNight bogeyman]], a vampire, the vampire's wife who [[VampireVannabe isn't a vampire but insists on acting like one]], a ghoul (retired), and a wolf who turns into a WolfMan at full moon.
* ''Literature/TalesOfMU'' initially appears to be based on this to most readers, though it is not exactly on a voluntary basis - the WizardingSchool, Magisterius University, has ''graciously'' established a separate dorm for the non-humans and part-humans, supposedly to make them feel less pressured to conform to human ways but in actuality at least in part to keep the freaks out of sight. The characters' foibles, both personal and racial, make up a significant part of the series.
* ''Literature/TheDresdenFiles''. The main character is a wizard and frequently [[FriendlyNeighborhoodVampire teams up with an incubus]], which in this setting is the [[OurVampiresAreDifferent most humanlike kind of vampire]]. Other occasional assistants/sidekicks include werewolves, faeries and [[KnightInShiningArmor Knights in Shining Armor]].
** In addition, a few villains resemble this trope, particularly the phobophages (shapeshifting faeries that feed on fear) that [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin disguised themselves as movie monsters]] to use their reputations for horror, including CaptainErsatz versions of [[Franchise/ANightmareOnElmStreet Freddy]], [[Franchise/FridayThe13th Jason]], and [[Franchise/{{Alien}} a Xenomorph]]. And [[Film/ChildsPlay Chucky]].
* Clive Barker's short novel ''Cabal'', later filmed as ''Film/{{Nightbreed}}''. The monsters live in Midian in Canada. In the book Clive Barker's Nightbreed Chronicles, Barker explains the origins of many of these monsters, indicating that they did not share a common origin. One monster had its origin as a mutant engineered by the Central Powers during World War I (reminiscent of the G-8 series, which often featured paranormal entities devised by Central Powers researchers) and another a person mutated by a meteor (similar to Doc Savage's foe Mo-Gwei, Vandal Savage, Meteor Man, and L?Île aux trente cercueils by Maurice [=LeBlanc=]).
* Neil Gaiman's ''Literature/TheGraveyardBook'' not only features a boy raised by ghosts, but also an organisation called the Honour Guard consisting of a vampire, a werewolf, a mummy and some sort of djinn.
* ''Literature/ANightInTheLonesomeOctober'' by Creator/RogerZelazny features versions of Literature/{{Dracula}}, Franchise/{{Frankenstein}}, Film/TheWolfMan1941 (who's [[Film/AnAmericanWerewolfInLondon American]]), Literature/SherlockHolmes, UsefulNotes/JackTheRipper, and UsefulNotes/{{Rasputin| the Mad Monk}}, as well as a CuteWitch, a [[HoYay pair]] of {{Evil Sorceror}}s, a Druid, a SinisterMinister, and their TalkingAnimal {{Familiar}}s.
* ''Literature/{{Department 19}}'' features werewolves, vampires and FrankensteinsMonster.
* The novel ''Literature/FamilyBites'' by Lisa Williams is about a family of friendly neighbourhood werewolves whose new neighbours turn out to be FriendlyNeighbourhoodVampires.
* Kelley Armstrong wrote a novel with only werewolves. She then called the series ''Literature/WomenOfTheOtherworld'' and included witches, demons, and other supernaturals to be able to not be stuck only writing about werewolves.
* This was the entire idea behind Creator/BruceCoville's stand-alone book, ''Literature/MonsterOfTheYear''.
* With the possible exception of Godzilla, anything on the list above is likely to be found drinking in Strangefellows in one {{Literature/Nightside}} book or another.
* Creator/KevinJAnderson's ''Literature/DanShambleZombiePI'' novels take place in the Unnatural Quarter, a neighborhood set aside for undead, fairy-tale beings, and other supernatural folk generated by or emerged in the wake of the Big Uneasy.
* ''Literature/CityOfDevils'' and [[Literature/FiftyFeetOfTrouble its sequel]] take place in a world in which every Universal, b-movie, and legendary monster comprise the ordinary John and Jane Does of the world.
* Daniel Gonzalez's ''Ravencraft'' series has Laura Talbot (a werewolf), Lucilla (a vampire), Abigail Valdemar (a zombie/Frankenstein-like creature) and Donovan Fort (a monster hunter) as main characters. Also Dracula, the Frankenstein Monster and other many evil werewolves, vampires and other monsters as villains.
* Norman Bridwell wrote ''How to Care for Your Monster'' and ''Monster Holidays'', in which children were shown how to treat classic monsters as essentially pets.
* ''Literature/BoredOfTheRings'' has this in the army emerging from the Black Gate of Fordor:
-->Forth from the gate burst a hundred thousand rabid narcs swinging bicycle chains and tire irons, followed by drooling divisions of pop-eyed changelings, deranged zombies and distempered werewolves. At their shoulders marched eight score heavily armored griffins, three thousand goose-stepping mummies, and a column of abominable snowmen on motorized bobsleds; at their flanks tramped six companies of slavering ghouls, eighty parched vampires in white tie, and the Phantom of the Opera. Above them the sky was blackened by the dark shapes of vicious pelicans, houseflies the size of two-car garages, and Rodan the Flying Monster. Through the portals streamed more foes of various forms and descriptions, including a six-legged diplodocus, the Loch Ness Monster, King Kong, Godzilla, the Creature from the Black Lagoon, the Beast with 1,000,000 Eyes, the Brain from Planet Arous, three different subphyla of giant insects, the Thing, It, She, Them, and the Blob. The great tumult of their charge could have waked the dead, were they not already bringing up the rear.

[[folder:Live-Action TV]]
* The BBC 3 show ''Series/{{Being Human|UK}}'' has a vampire, a werewolf and a female ghost as flatmates.
* ''Big Bad Series/{{Beetleborgs}}'' had a mummy, a vampire, a frankenstein-style monster, a group of pixies, a ghoul, a living statue, and a "phantasm" all sharing a haunted house. Surprisingly, while ''they'' were real, the heroes and villains of the show were ''not'': the Beetleborg powers were pulled out of the world of fiction by a spell the phantasm cast, and the villains were also pulled out of that world as a GoneHorriblyWrong side effect.
* In Season 4 of ''Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer'', Adam attempts to create an alliance between vampires and demons to fight humans.
-->'''Giles:''' ...And yet you say that the, the vampire went to the demon's aid. The two of them were working as a team?\\
'''Buffy:''' Everything except giving each other little pats on the behind.
** Buffy's own group of friends is a bit like a monster mash, too. There are Slayers (Buffy and Faith), vampires (Angel and Spike), witches (Willow, Tara and Giles), a werewolf (Oz), an ex-demon (Anya), a demon (Clem), with a couple of [[BadAssNormal normal humans]] thrown in the mix.
* The villains of ''Series/MahouSentaiMagiranger''/''Series/PowerRangersMysticForce'' had this kind of horror motif, starting with a Frankensteinish cyborg, a vampiress, a WolfMan (actually a knight in wolf-themed armor, but the reference is there), and zombie-like {{Mooks}}. The Frankenstein later got replaced by a mummy, then a whole other group came in led by a gillman, and they all worked for an EldritchAbomination.
* A pilot for a failed TV show called ''1313thAvenue'' aired in 1983 about a group of monsters and supernatural beings sharing an apartment building while trying to maintain a {{Masquerade}}.
* ''Series/TheMunsters'' as a case of a CreepyFamily, has the father Herman (a FrankensteinMonster), the mother [[UsefulNotes/{{Lilith}} Lily]] (a [[OurVampiresAreDifferent vampire]]), the grandfather [[{{Dracula}} Sam "Grandpa" Dracula]] (a [[{{Shapeshifting}} vampire/werewolf]]), the only son [[WolfMan Eddie]] (a werewolf with some vampiric tendencies), the niece [[TokenHuman Marilyn]] (the DamselInDistress), [[OurDragonsAreDifferent Spot]] (the [[{{Kaiju}} Godzilla-like dragon pet]]) and [[CatsAreMagic a black cat]] [[PantheraAwesome that roars like a lion]], all similar in looks (albeit not in behavior) to the classic Universal Monsters.
* A ''Series/ChappellesShow'' sketch had a mummy, werewolf, and Frankenstein's monster who were roommates and all victims of FantasticRacism.
* There was a short lived 70s TV series called ''Series/MonsterSquad'' (unrelated to the movie pictured above) that is too campy to be believed. About a wax museum security guard whose "Crime Computer" brings the replicas of Frankenstein's Monster, Dracula and The Wolf Man to life. TheyFightCrime to [[TheAtoner make up]] for their namesakes' past misdeeds.
* ''Series/KamenRiderKiva'' has an overall horror theme, specifically based on the Universal Monsters. As a result, the villains are vampires and the main character is a {{Dhampir}} whose Rider powers come from a talking bat and include alternate forms based on a werewolf, gillman and a Frankenstein's Monster, as well as a base of operations which is a dragon bonded to the mold of a castle. TheMovie introduces two villainous Riders with powers based off of demons and Yeti, as well as another monster race whose members include a Gorgon, a Mandragora, a Gargoyle and a Mummy.
* ''Series/{{Supernatural}}'' is a veritable FantasyKitchenSink, but this trope is explicitly invoked in one episode during Season 4, "Monster Movie", where the Winchesters investigate killings apparently perpetrated by the famous silver-screen monsters (See header picture above) themselves. [[spoiler:It turns out to be a ShapeShifter who specifically tries to emulate them]]. The entire episode is a ShoutOut to classic horror movies.
* From ''Series/MrShow'': Monster Parties: Fact or Fiction?
* ''Series/DarkShadows'' had witches, vampires, a werewolf, a FrankensteinsMonster, ghosts, {{Captain Ersatz}}es of Dorian Gray and Jekyll and Hyde, and even an EldritchAbomination. They managed to miss mummies, though.
** If it had lasted long enough, they might have gotten mummies and a robot. ''Series/KolchakTheNightStalker'' (original version, also produced by Dan Curtis) made up for the lack.
* The 1970s Canadian Saturday Morning children's show ''The Hilarious House Of Frightenstein'' is basically this, with a MadScientist Dracula [[{{Expy}} expy]] named Count von Frightenstein (He's supposed to be the 13th son of Dracula) and his sidekick, [[TheIgor Igor]], their incapacitated FrankensteinMonster expy named "Brucie" (which they [[FailureIsTheOnlyOption could never]] revive) and a host of other kooky, classic-horror-themed characters [[note]]like a goofy old witch with a spoof [[CookingShow cooking show]] segment, goofy furry monsters & a sea serpent, a creepy old Librarian who tells innocuous folk tales & nursery rhymes, real-life physicist/mathematician Julius Sumner Miller in MadScientist mode with ''Mister Wizard''-like demonstrations, [[OurWerewolvesAreDifferent a cool]] [[WolfMan wolfman]] radio D.J. playing actual popular hits of the day and a bunch of other stuff[[/note]].
* ''Series/PennyDreadful'' has as part of the characters of the show; Victor Frankenstein, his Creature, the Creature's bride, a WolfMan, Doryan Grey, Witches, Dracula and Dr.Jekyll.

* The {{Trope Namer|s}} is "Monster Mash", a classic 1962 novelty hit by Bobby "Boris" Pickett and the Crypt-Kickers. Sung by a MadScientist with a Creator/BorisKarloff-type voice, it mentions [[FrankensteinsMonster his monster]], [[OurVampiresAreDifferent vampires]] (including {{Dracula}} and [[Film/SonOfDracula his son]]), the [[Film/TheWolfMan1941 Wolf Man]], [[TheIgor Igor]], [[OurZombiesAreDifferent zombies]] and [[OurGhoulsAreCreepier ghouls]]. Pickett recorded several additional tunes in the same vein, most notably the [[ChristmasSongs Christmas-themed]] "Monster's Holiday".
** In 1973 the all-female dance troupe Pan's People made a video to the original song in which they dressed as CuteMonsterGirl versions of a vampire, a bat, a {{mummy}}, Film/KingKong and an [[GreenSkinnedSpaceBabe alien]]. Only one of these monsters was mentioned in the song, but top marks for originality.
** Music/PaulAndStorm's "Lame Monster Party", which parodies the theme (but not the tune) of "Monster Mash".
* The music video of Music/BackstreetBoys' song "Everybody (Backstreet's Back)" features each band member as a different monster.
* Music/AdamWarrock's "Zombie Girl"- It's implied that the eponymous character's friends are Dracula, Frankenstein's Monster, and The Wolfman.
* Music/DieArzte has a song called 'Monsterparty' which has the protagonist attending a party at [[{{Dracula}} Dracula's castle]] where he meets Film/TheInvisibleMan, Film/KingKong, FrankensteinsMonster, Film/{{The Wolfman|1941}}, [[DemBones a skeleton]], [[Film/{{Jaws}} the Great White Shark]], The {{Mummy}} and [[Film/ETTheExtraTerrestrial ET]].
* Music/ChinaAnneMcClain's music video "Calling All The Monsters" features all sorts of monsters.
* The spoken preamble to "A Gorey Demise", by Music/CreatureFeature, is a group of undead monsters having a dinner party.
* Ookla the Mok's "Bride of the Wolfman" starts out with the WolfMan angsting about how he feels unloved. Then the mummy comes to cheer him up. Dracula and Frankenstein are mentioned as mutual acquaintances.
* Music/BuckOwens had a 1974 single called "(It's a) Monster's Holiday" (no relation to the Bobby "Boris" Pickett Christmas tune mentioned above). Incidentally, it was one of the last songs to feature the talents of Don Rich, who died in a motorcycle accident shortly after this song was recorded:
-->Frankenstein was first in line\\
And the Wolf Man came up next\\
Dracula was doing his stuff\\
Breathing down my neck...
* The song "Crasher-vania" from ''Music/StarBomb'', released by the WebVideo/GameGrumps, tells of Dracula throwing a big party for himself and all of his monster friends, when Simon Belmont crashes the party (twice) and kills everyone except Dracula [[VillainsOutShopping under the misguided assumption that they were all up to no good]]. Although when Dracula asks [[WhatTheHellHero what Simon's deal is]], Simon admits that it was because he never gets invited to parties.
* On Halloween 2013, Music/{{Megadeth}} [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YC4BGeWE-9A performed for Jimmy Kimmel as classic monsters]]: Dave Mustaine hid all his hair under Frankenstein's head, bassist David Ellefson was a werewolf, Chris Broderick dressed as the Phantom of the Opera (though he removed the mask fairly early) and drummer Shawn Drover became Dracula.

[[folder: Professional Wrestling]]
* Invoked by the Wrestling/DungeonOfDoom in Wrestling/{{WCW}} in 1995, as [[Wrestling/KingCurtisIaukea the Master (King Curtis Iaukea)]] and [[Wrestling/KevinSullivan "The Taskmaster" Kevin Sullivan]] assembled the initial group of [[TheGiant giants]], [[WrestlingMonster monsters]] and oddballs for [[LegionOfDoom the purpose of]] destroying [[Wrestling/HulkHogan Hulkamania]].

* ''Pinball/ElviraAndThePartyMonsters'' is centered around one of these, in the form of a barbecue party.
* The pinball machine ''Pinball/MonsterBash'' requires the player to gather the Franchise/UniversalHorror mainstays Dracula, Frankenstein's Monster, Bride of Frankenstein, the Wolfman, the Mummy, and the Creature From The Black Lagoon so they can re-form their rock band.

[[folder:Recorded and Stand-Up Comedy]]
* In the "9th Street Bridge" routine on his ''Revenge'' album, Creator/BillCosby describes going to the movies as a kid with his pal Old Weird Harold and seeing a film that had "Frankenstein, Wolf Man, Dracula, the Hunchback, the Mummy...''everybody'' was in it."
** Slight aversion in that we don't know whether the monsters actually teamed up, since--despite sitting in the theater for several showings of the movie--Bill and Harold never got up from hiding on the floor to see what actually happened.

[[folder:Tabletop Games]]
* ''TabletopGame/TheWorldOfDarkness:'' In [[TabletopGame/OldWorldOfDarkness both]] [[TabletopGame/NewWorldOfDarkness versions]] of the [=WoD=], [=PCs=] play any one of a number of horror movie mainstays, and at the behest of the Storyteller, can encounter and (most likely) try to kill each other.
** By extension, [[http://tgdmb.com/viewtopic.php?t=52316&postdays=0&postorder=asc&start=0 After Sundown]] started as a homebrew fix to the World of Darkness tailored to allow players to actually play Monster Mash type games (the original [=WoD=] was specifically built to make crossover games a bad idea). After finishing the rules set, the author decided to strip out the IP for public domain stuff and make it a stand alone game.
* In ''TabletopGame/TheTrailOfCthulhu'' adventure book ''Shadows Over Filmland'', the player characters have the opportunity to battle CaptainErsatz versions of Franchise/{{Frankenstein}} ('Doctor Gravenhurst'), the InvisibleMan ('the Non-Euclidean Man'), and {{Dracula}} (a vampiric dream-spirit of the historical UsefulNotes/VladTheImpaler) in individual adventures. In the the adventure "The Preserve", all three are lured to an island where they can face off against their old foes, the player characters, in exchange for the Necronomicon.
* Even plain ol' TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons has the potential for this.
** Especially ''TabletopGame/{{Ravenloft}}'', the gothic horror setting. And even more so in "TabletopGame/MasqueOfTheRedDeath", set in 19th century Earth, complete with stats for Dracula and Frankenstein.
** The ''TabletopGame/{{Mystara}}'' supplement ''Night Howlers'', while it focused specifically on lycanthropes, had more than enough different strains of werebeast in it to constitute a Monster Mash.
* This is basically the entire premise behind the game ''[=NightLife=]'', which features a bewildering array of monsters (many of them usable as player characters) trying to maintain a common {{masquerade}} viz. a humanity that still has them horribly outnumbered while ''also'' keeping themselves both fed and sane.
* ''Creature Feature'', a supplement for the ''Chill'' [=RPG=], may have been the first to do this for player characters. Unlike [=WoD=] or ''[=NightLife=]'', it kept the monsters as inherently evil, and gave points for killing heroes and scaring the crap out of hapless human victims.
* ''TabletopGame/BigEyesSmallMouth'' had a sourcebook more or less revolving around this: "Cold Hands, Dark Hearts". In a twist rather like Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer, almost all modern monsters are actually 'watered down' descendents of the real big nasties who once dominated the world before being sealed away. Vampires, Ghosts, Oni (the descendents of humans who bred with demons), Nephelim (their angelic counterparts), several types of animal spirit (including Minotaurs and Tengu) and Revenents (basic "dead body walking" type monsters that could, among others, resemble zombies, liches, or FrankensteinsMonster) are some of the creatures covered. For an extra twist, these were your ''player races''.
* ''TabletopGame/MustBeTuesday'' has a list of 20 playable monsters. Vampires? Yup. Angels? Sure. Robots? Cool. Blob Monsters? Go wild.
* In TabletopGame/{{chess}}, the Frankenstein-Dracula Variation of the Vienna Game was named by Tim Harding as the answer to the question, "If the Frankenstein Monster and Count Dracula were to sit down to a game of chess, what would happen?" This is an insanely unorthodox opening in which a White Knight fork forces Black to sacrifice a whole Rook. The December 1978 issue of ''Chess'' included a Frankenstein-Dracula game supposedly from a deleted chapter of ''Literature/{{Dracula}}'' (which followed the RealLife game of Hansen-Nunn, Students' Olympiad, Teesside 1974).

* OlderThanRadio: ''The Ghost Sonata'' (1907) includes a mummy, two vampires, a ghost, and a walking dead man.
* ''House of Frankenstein'' by [[http://www.amazon.com/Martin-Downing/e/B001KE26FW/ref=sr_ntt_srch_lnk_4?_encoding=UTF8&qid=1270575397&sr=1-4 Martin Downing]] has this as its central premise. Dracula, the Wolfman, and the latest girl stalked by the Phantom of the Opera come to Dr. Frankenstein to have their problems solved by him. HilarityEnsues.
** This is really the template for most of the scripts he's put out.

* An old discontinued toyline called Titanium '[[http://www.toymania.com/news/messages/3443.shtml Monsters]] [[http://www.figures.com/databases/action.cgi?setup_file=fignews2.setup&category=actionfigures&topic=169&show_article=15 Of Rock]]' was pretty much this [[ThePowerOfRock as a rock]] [[RecycledINSPACE band]], with the members being a vampire, a werewolf, a Frankenstein monster, and a mummy..
* Just add "the children of" right before the word "{{Dracula}}" in the above description of the trope and you have the basic premise of ''Toys/MonsterHigh''. For bonus points, the five monsters namechecked above, plus the "children" addendum, happen to describe the five main characters of the line (respectively Draculaura, Clawdeen, Cleo, Frankie and Lagoona).
** And 10 more of the monsters mentioned are the parent(s) of minor characters.
* The defunct Xevoz line had an undead faction (the "Unnaturals") that included vampires, ghosts, skeletons, mummies, and Frankenstein monsters in their ranks (the wolfman ended up in the "[[UsefulNotes/FurryFandom Meta-Beast]]" faction). And this isn't counting the insects, cyborg/robots, dragons, ''elemental forces of nature personified...''
* Franchise/{{Lego}} did it twice with the [[FramingDevice Studios]] line[[note]][[OurVampiresAreDifferent Vampire]], {{Werewolf}}, FrankensteinsMonster, plus MadScientist and TheIgor[[/note]] and the Collectible Minifigures line[[note]][[OurVampiresAreDifferent Vampire]], {{Werewolf}}, FrankensteinsMonster, the {{Mummy}} plus MadScientist and [[OurZombiesAreDifferent Zombie]][[/note]]. And they are preparing a third with the Monster Hunters line[[note]][[OurVampiresAreDifferent Vampire]], {{Werewolf}}, FrankensteinsMonster, the Mummy, Film/CreatureFromTheBlackLagoon, [[OurGhostsAreDifferent Ghosts]] plus MadScientist and a [[OurZombiesAreDifferent Zombie]][[/note]].

[[folder:Video Games]]
* The Undead Scourge from VideoGame/{{Warcraft}} has waking skeletons, zombies, mummies, vampiric demons, {{Frankensteins Monster}}ish abominations armed with hooks and meat cleavers, magic devourers, gargoyles, undead dragons, necromancers, cultists, and fallen paladins make up its ranks.
** Not to mention [[OurWerewolvesAreDifferent worgen]] opposing them come the release of the Cataclysm expansion for ''VideoGame/WorldOfWarcraft''.
* ''Franchise/{{Castlevania}}'' practically runs on this trope, with demons and mythical monsters thrown in for extra variety.
** Hell, even Cthulhu makes an appearance, as does Leatherface (in ''VideoGame/CastlevaniaOrderOfEcclesia''). The [[VideoGame/CastlevaniaI first game]] had almost all of the Universal Studios monsters (Wolfman didn't show up until ''VideoGame/CastlevaniaIISimonsQuest'').
** The last four paintings in ''VideoGame/CastlevaniaPortraitOfRuin'' all feature the classic movie monsters as the bosses of each area: a buried pyramid for Mummy Man, a chaotic circus for Medusa, the streets of London for the Werewolf, and a haunted academy for Frankenstein's Monster.
* ''VideoGame/{{Darkstalkers}}'' is essentially a Monster Mash in fighting game form. Many classic Universal monsters are represented, including Felicia as one of the fairly obscure Cat People, in addition to later horror movie mainstays like Lord Raptor (zombie), Bishamon (ghostly samurai) and Pyron (alien).
** And then, introduced in one of the sequels was [[CuteAndPsycho B. B. Hood]], a girl who is [[TokenHuman a regular human]], and also an amoral and sociopathic professional monster hunter. She was introduced, in part, to contrast against the monsters, to show that humans [[HumansAreTheRealMonsters have the potential to be as bad, or worse by comparison.]]
* The ''Franchise/{{Disgaea}}'' series include a variety of fantasy staples like succubi, dragons, zombies, ghosts, and cat girls, many of which have class ranks named after various mythological creatures. Made more amusing in ''VideoGame/{{Disgaea 3|AbsenceOfJustice}}'' and ''VideoGame/{{Disgaea 4| A Promise Unforgotten}}'', where said monsters can be your school classmates or members of your political party, respectively.
* The Council in ''VideoGame/CityOfHeroes'' have ''scientifically created'' ([[AppliedPhlebotinum somehow]]) vampires and werewolves that can work together (though are rarely seen together at the same time). During the Halloween event, generic vampires, werewolves, zombies, ghosts, witches and pumpkin people are all about as likely to spawn from Trick or Treating. Really.
* [[VideoGame/{{Touhou}} Gensokyo]], being pretty much the definition of a FantasyKitchenSink, hosts plenty of tea parties bewteen witches, vampires, {{miko}}, ghosts, fairies, aliens, oni, goddesses, and more.
* The band Deuil from ''VideoGame/PopNMusic'' consists of a vampire, a werewolf and a mummy.
* ''VideoGame/MadWorld'' has the Mad Castle level for this. The {{Mooks}} are zombies (but bandaged up like mummies); the first area's bosses are the Shamans, a pack of werewolves; the second area's boss is [[ThatOneBoss Frank]], FrankensteinsMonster; and the last area's boss is Elise, somewhere between a [[HornyDevils succubus]] and a vampire.
* The PC game ''VideoGame/MonsterBash'' features several different horror-themed mooks, including but not limited to [[EverythingsDeaderWithZombies zombies]], [[DemBones skeletons]], [[HelpingHands severed hands]], [[MundaneMadeAwesome possessed rocking horses]]...
* The Creator/{{Sega}} coin-op ''Monster Bash'' (unrelated to either of the above two) has the hero using the power of a magic sword to defeat first Dracula, then Frankenstein's Monster, and finally Chameleon Man; defeat all three, and [[EndlessGame you get to do it again]], at increased difficulty...
* ''VideoGame/PlanescapeTorment'' has a party that includes a hideously scarred immortal/regenerating human, a floating talking skull [[spoiler: which is actually a damned soul]], a part-demon girl with a tail, a succubus with pink bat wings, a githzerai (tall, thin, pointy-eared extraplanar humanoid), a malfunctioning clockwork robot, a perpetually burning man who is a living conduit to the Elemental Plane of Fire, and a ghost in a suit of armor.
* The EdutainmentGame [[VideoGame/BlasterSeries Math Blaster Mystery: The Great Brain Robbery]] has a MadScientist named BigBad Dr. Dabble as the BigBad. His mansion contains monsters who give you puzzles and word problems to solve. They include a bald vampire named Fang, an [[TheIgor an Igor-esque hunchback technician]], a witch known as Granny, a Film/CreatureFromTheBlackLagoon knockoff named Scales, a hooded fellow who looks like TheGrimReaper and two characters called [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin Mummy Lady and Frankenbunny]].
** Reading Blaster Mystery has a cycloptic alien (?) hero trying to foil Dr. Dabble's plot with the help of a ghost.
* With the right expansion packs(particularly the Supernatural pack), you can turn ''Videogame/TheSims'' into this. Your Sim family can be populated with vampires, werewolves, witches, fairies, and even mermaids.
* In the ''KingdomHearts'' series, Sora, Donald and Goofy take on the form of monsters in [[WesternAnimation/TheNightmareBeforeChristmas Halloween Town]]. Of the trio, Sora becomes a vampire, Donald becomes a mummy, and Goofy becomes a parody of FrankensteinsMonster. Their forms are very popular with the fandom.
* ''VideoGame/UrbanRivals'': The Nightmare clan is are expy's on half of the examples above, others are based off horror movie characters.
* During a Solar Eclipse in ''VideoGame/{{Terraria}}'', hordes of classical monsters attack on the surface, such as Reapers, Swamp Things, Frankenstein's Monsters, Vampires, and Cyclops Zombies. Pity there are no werewolves or skeletons, as they can only appear at night or underground respectively.
** In the 1.3 update, various monsters based on horror monsters now appear, such as [[Franchise/{{Halloween}} Psycho]], [[Film/CreatureFromTheBlackLagoon Creature From the Deep]], [[Franchise/TheTexasChainsawMassacre Butcher]], [[Film/TheFly1958 Dr. ManFly]], [[Franchise/{{Godzilla}} Mothron]], [[Film/TheExorcist The Possessed]], [[Franchise/{{Hellraiser}} Nailhead]], [[Film/{{Phantasm}} Deadly Spheres]], and [[Literature/{{Frankenstein}} Fritz]].
* In ''VideoGame/MuppetMonsterAdventure'', Franchise/TheMuppets are transformed into classic monsters. Gonzo becomes Nose-feratu the {{Vampire}}, Kermit becomes Ker-Monster (FrankensteinsMonster), Piggy becomes the Ghoulfriend of Ker-Monster (the Bride), Fozzie becomes a Wocka-Wocka [[OurWerebeastsAreDifferent Werebear]] and Clifford becomes a [[FishPerson Muck Monster]].
* In the Creator/DataEast game ''Death Brade'', the fighters include a werewolf, a minotaur, a golem and even a fire-breathing dragon.
* The LightGun arcade ''VideoGame/AfterDark'' has you playing as two bounty hunters going after various monsters.

[[folder:Web Animation]]
* The [[http://www.bogleech.com/flash/FEARHOLE1-PILOT.html pilot]] of [[http://bogleech.com/animations.html The Fear Hole]] has the classic universal monsters as the first creatures to come out of the titular hole. Well, them and [[OurMonstersAreWeird THE CREEPING COLON!]]. Whose film was shot into the sun.

* During the Storm of Souls arc in ''Webcomic/DominicDeegan'', the main characters are witness to a fight between an infernomancer and a werewolf. Donovan Deegan mentions that, in his day, they had a name for such fights: A Monster Mash.
* The original concept of the [[http://www.charbythevampirate.com/ comic]] ''Webcomic/CharbyTheVampirate'' was to play with this particular trope. Living in the same cabin in the [[TheLostWoods woods]] are a [[OurVampiresAreDifferent vampire,]] a [[WolfMan werewolf,]] an [[DreamWalker alp]], two [[TheUndead zombies]] (one is a [[CuteWitch witch,]] the other a hoodoo practitioner) a bipedal merboy (basically a [[FishPeople Gillman]]), a wizard, a [[OurDemonsAreDifferent demon]] and a [[Franchise/{{Frankenstein}} patchwork monster]] pet/servant.
* ''Webcomic/GunnerkriggCourt'' features a fox demon, a LivingShadow, a ghost, and a Minotaur.
* ''Webcomic/HannaIsNotABoysName'' has thus far had a zombie SupportingProtagonist, a werewolf, some vampires, a [[HalfHumanHybrid half-selkie]], and a ghost. And it's barely into its third chapter.
** Pretty much every main character seems to have ''something'' paranormal about them. We don't even know what's up with Hanna or Ples yet, but at best even they are only AmbiguouslyHuman.
*** Coin toss says that even [[FanNickname CA]][[EnsembleDarkhorse $H]] is going to turn out to be a Pwca or a necromancer or something.
* In ''Webcomic/TheInexplicableAdventuresOfBob'', it turns out that [[HiddenElfVillage reclusive]] [[BigfootSasquatchAndYeti Bigfeet]] like to ride {{Unicorn}}s because Bigfeet leave big obvious tracks, while Unicorns leave no tracks at all.
* ''Webcomic/SluggyFreelance''. The main character is currently a {{mook|s}} in the service of a supervillain, and has a sword powered by the blood of the innocent. He's good friends with an alien from a species that reproduces by destroying the host planet, a vampire, a witch, a psychotic KillerRabbit, and a mad scientist. He also owns a zombie head on a stick. And he's one of the good guys. Ostensibly.
* ''Webcomic/BloodyUrban'' has a main cast featuring a werewolf, a ghoul, and a vampire. Among the supporting characters are a Frankenstein, a mad scientist and her dinosaur sidekick, an invisible man, and a blob monster.
* ''Webcomic/EerieCuties'' has a mismash of different monsters going to an AllGhoulsSchool.
* ''[[http://www.monsterful.com/ Monsterful]]'' has a world full of monsters of all kinds, from classic undead ones (zombies, vampires, ghosts) to mythological ones (gorgons, Loch Ness monsters, mummies), uncommon ones like ragdolls, golems and homunculi, and even some hybrid monsters (Zombpyre). The first chapter focuses on the Addams High AllGhoulsSchool.
* ''Webcomic/OwMySanity'' is a pastiche of the UnwantedHarem set in the Chtulhu mythos, with the hapless guy getting the attention of several lovecraftian ladies. So far he has encountered the {{Kuudere}} Servitor Nancy, an unnamed shoggoth in the form of a young girl with hand mouths, the Sleeper of N'Kai (a {{Yandere}} frog-girl) and CoolBigSis neighbour "Shubby".
* ''Webcomic/ZebraGirl'': The initial group is composed of one normal human (Crystal), a sorcerer (Jack), a demon (Sandra), an anthropomorphic rabbit (Sam), a werewolf (Wally), and a talking book (Tomie) who [[spoiler:got a human form at some point]]. Later in the comic, Sandra's hometown attracts a lot of monsters, with now vampires, ghouls and other kinds of creatures roaming in the streets.

[[folder:Web Originals]]
* One of the super-villain teams in the ''Roleplay/GlobalGuardiansPBEMUniverse'' is All Hallow's Eve. The team's members are Fenris, a mutant who can [[OurWerewolvesAreDifferent shapeshift into a "Man Wolf"]], Crypt Thing, a [[OurZombiesAreDifferent super-strong zombie]], Shadowspawn, a [[ClingyCostume carnivorous alien abomination]], Black Rose, a [[TheFairFolk dark elf sorceress from Niflheim]], the Patchwork Man, a [[FrankensteinsMonster reanimated corpse created by mad science]], and Pumpkin Jack, a [[{{Golem}} scarecrow animated through dark magic]].
* The upcoming ''FanFic/GraveAcademy''.
* There's an online meme called [[OurMonstersAreDifferent "30 day]] [[CuteMonsterGirl monster girl]] [[http://fuckyeahmonstergirls.tumblr.com/post/26751189905/30-day-monster-girl-challengechallenge]], where you draw a specific [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin monster girl type or challenge daily, for a month.]] The list includes mythological creatures like the [[SnakePeople naga]] and [[HeadlessHorseman dullahan]], to [[LittleBitBeastly more creature types]] like insect girls and [[CatGirl feline girls]], to horror types like the [[OurVampiresAreDifferent vampire]] and [[OurGhostsAreDifferent ghost girls]], to [[FantasyKitchenSink even SCIFI types]] like the [[RobotGirl robot girls]] and [[GreenSkinnedSpaceBabe aliens!]] There even some that ask for [[UpToEleven even more]] [[HumanoidAbomination bizaare]] [[OurMonstersAreWeird types than that!]] Challenge 28 specifically asks for an entire group of monster girls in one pic, making this trope go anywhere from downplayed, to exaggerated...
* The Website/CollegeHumor sketch "The Six Monsters You'll Have for Roommates" personifies college roommates as these. The NeatFreak is the Robot, HeWhoMustNotBeSeen is the Ghost, TheCasanova is the Vampire, the CloudCuckoolander is the Alien, and TheSlacker is the Zombie. The Mummy apparently has his own place off-campus.
* ''WebVideo/KeyOfAwesome'' parodied the TropeNamer with the [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qx1mboWYn0c "Modern Monster Mash"]], with the singer aghast at the modern monsters he'd recruited to appear using visceral and gory violence as opposed to the original song's monsters' lighter antics.
* ''[[https://myweirdwriting.wordpress.com/2018/03/04/the-monsters-of-bremen/ The Monsters of Bremen]]'' is a retelling of ''Literature/TheBremenTownMusicians'' with a ghostly donkey, a mummified cat, a vampire dog and a Frankenstein's Monster-like rooster.

[[folder:Western Animation]]
* ''WesternAnimation/SabrinaAndTheGroovieGoolies''.
* At least two ''WesternAnimation/ScoobyDoo'' TV movies do this. In ''WesternAnimation/ScoobyDooAndTheReluctantWerewolf'', Shaggy is turned into a werewolf against his will to take Wolf Man's place in a monster race organized by Dracula. ''WesternAnimation/ScoobyDooAndTheGhoulSchool'' has Scooby and Shaggy becoming gym teachers for the daughters of Dracula, Frankenstein, the Mummy, Wolf Man and the Phantom. Franchise/{{Godzilla}}, the Film/CreatureFromTheBlackLagoon, and a random alien, along with their daughters, show up at the end and convince Shaggy and Scooby to move on.
** And once again one of the later series has the cast teach a bunch of monsters how to act monstrous, so they can stand up to a powerful sorceress who's trying to steal their powers. By the end their efforts turn out to be [[GoneHorriblyRight way more successful]] than originally intended.
** ''WesternAnimation/ScoobyDooOnZombieIsland'' has ghosts, zombies and [[spoiler: Witches were-cats]]
* ''WesternAnimation/DrakPack'', a short-lived SaturdayMorningCartoon from the 80s, features the teenaged descendants of Dracula, Frankenstein's Monster and the Wolf Man joining forces to fight a Vincent Price-esque criminal mastermind and his henchpersons: a female vampire, a mummy, a toad-like hunchback and a fly/human hybrid.
* The short-lived series ''WesternAnimation/GravedaleHigh'' had a vampire, a werewolf, a zombie, a gorgon, a mummy, a Frankenstein's monster, an invisible boy, and some sort of Igor-type being going to a monsters' high-school where one of the teachers is a human. Humorously enough, the vampire's name is Vinnie Stoker (His last name being a ShoutOut to ''Dracula'' author Bram Stoker) and the gorgon's name is Doozer (Short for "Medusa").
* In the third season of ''WesternAnimation/{{Ben 10}}'' we are introduced to monster-themed alien villains: a mummy, a werewolf, a Frankenstein monster, and a ghost. Of course, Ben gained the ability to turn into each of these himself (he actually had the ghost all along, but this was when the others debuted and were all made a group). These guys are all from the same star system - and at the end of ''Secret of the Omnitrix'' zombies from another planet in the same system (Anur Ormeron) are mentioned.
** ''WesternAnimation/Ben10Omniverse'' devotes a plot arc to revisiting the premise, with the return of the Anurian villains and Ben's alien versions (including a new fifth monster alien, a vampire), unrelated horror villains and shoutouts to additional works.
* Camp Mini-Mon, in the show ''Mini Monsters'' (part of the AnimatedAnthology ''WesternAnimation/TheComicStrip''), is filled with kids of various monsters, ghosts and ghouls.
* The ''Dingbat and the Creeps'' segments of ''The Heathcliff And Dingbat Show'' feature a vampire dog, a living skeleton and a talking jack o'lantern.
* The latter-day ''WesternAnimation/LooneyTunes'' cartoon "Night of the Living Duck" had Daffy Duck dreaming that he was a lounge singer in a club full of classic movie monsters, including Dracula, Frankestein's monster (with Bride), Wolfman, the Mummy, the Fly and Godzilla (all names changed to protect copyright, of course). He ends up singing (with the voice of Mel Torme) "Monsters Lead Such Interesting Lives".
* The ''WesternAnimation/BuzzLightyearOfStarCommand'' episode "Revenge of the Monsters" featured a team-up between robotic vampire NOS-4-A2, cyborg werewolf the Wirewolf, and the Frankenstein's Monster-esque PsychoPrototype XL.
* ''WesternAnimation/CaspersScareSchool'' featured an AcademyOfAdventure filled with all sorts of different monsters, including a werewolf, a zombie, a mummy, and of course a ghost.
* ''WesternAnimation/DuckTales1987'' had an episode with a collection of classic monsters (Wolfman, Dracula, Frankenstein's monster and Bride, Quasimodo, Creature from the Black Lagoon, The Blob, The Mummy, and [[Film/KingKong Ping Pong]]) booking a get-together at Scrooge's mansion before protesting a movie theater that Scrooge owned which played monster movies, saying that the movies gave them a bad name. Fortunately it turned out that the movies instead made them popular, and they happily accepted jobs as actors in more monster movies.
** ''WesternAnimation/QuackPack'' would later follow suit with the episode "The Boy Who Cried Ghost", which featured a vampire, a werewolf, a Frankenstein's monster Valkyrie, and a ghost.
* One episode of ''WesternAnimation/CountDuckula'' has the titular [[{{Dracula}} Count]] and co. being chased by a {{Mummy}} he inadvertently brought back to life, a FrankensteinsMonster {{Expy}} accidentally resurrected by Igor, a WolfMan who came to the castle to escape from the full moon but got exposed and transformed due to Nanny's interference, a space invader [[ItMakesSenseInContext taking the form of a cabbage]], and [[TheLastOfTheseIsNotLikeTheOthers Goosewing]]. At the end, [[spoiler: Duckula gets all the monsters outside the castle then transports it to a lagoon ... which turns out to contain a SeaMonster]]. The episode is appropriately named "[[LongTitle The Return of the Curse of the Secret of the Mummy's Tomb Meets Frankenduckula's Monster and the Wolf-Man and the Intergalactic Cabbage...]]".
* ''WesterAnimation/TheGrimAdventuresOfBillyAndMandy'' has featured quite a few monsters. TheGrimReaper himself is one of the main protagonists, his rival is TheBoogeyMan, and one HalloweenEpisode had a pumpkin-headed prankster. There's Jeff the giant spider, an Underworld creature named Fred Fredburger (among other Underworld creatures), and a demon named Nergal and his HalfHumanHybrid son Nergal Jr. There was even an episode that had a retirement home for monsters, with the episode focusing on the Bride of [[FrankensteinsMonster Frankenstein]], the [[WolfMan Wolfman]], and {{Dracula}}!
** Dracula would later be a recurring character. And as it turns out, [[spoiler:his son married a {{Mummy}}, and the two had [[{{Dhampyr}} Ir]][[BlackAndNerdy win]], making him a [[HybridMonster mummy-vampire]]]].
* ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'' briefly features this in its [[Recap/TheSimpsonsS6E6TreehouseOfHorrorV parody]] of ''Film/TheShining'', when Homer is released from the pantry. Unlike in the original film (which kept things [[MaybeMagicMaybeMundane somewhat ambiguous]]), Homer is blatantly dragged out by Moe's ghost, the Mummy, the Wolf Man, Dracula, Jason Voorhees, Pinhead, and Freddy Krueger. They also appeared in a deleted scene showing them hiding in the rooms watching Bart.
* ''WesternAnimation/TheAdventuresOfJimmyNeutronBoyGenius'' had this happen in the HalloweenEpisode "Nightmare in Retroville", where he creates a machine that makes people look like monsters and uses it to turn Carl into a vampire and Sheen into a werewolf. Things go awry when Jimmy's dad Hugh later uses the machine to accidentally turn himself into Frankenstein's monster and Sheen and Carl become a werewolf and a vampire for real and manage to turn Libby and Cindy. Jimmy saves the day by using his machine to turn into Hugh's favorite monster Octopus Man.
* ''WesternAnimation/PopeyeAndSon'' episode "There Goes the Neighborhood" has a Monster Mash mix with CreepyFamily. A new family in town ends to be made of a vampire Dracula-like father, a mummy mother, a Frankenstein monster-like grandpa and their only werewolf son. How this makes sense genetically... who knows?
* The ''WesternAnimation/FilmationsGhostbusters'' RoguesGallery is a MonsterMash team including BigBad Prime Evil (some sort of [[NinjaPirateZombieRobot skeleton cyborg ghost wizard]]), a [[DemBones living skeleton]], a {{werewolf}}, a {{mummy}}, a [[TheVamp Morticia Addams-looking]] VainSorceress, a {{banshee}} and what seems to be the ghosts of a [[GreatWhiteHunter safari hunter]], [[KnightTemplar medieval knight]] and a [[GhostPirate pirate]].
* ''Monster Tails'' (an animated section inside the live action show ''Wake, Rattle, and Roll'') have animal versions of the classic Franchise/UniversalHorror monsters like Dracula's cat Catula, FrankensteinsMonster's dog Frankenmutt, the BrideOfFrankenstein's she-dog Elsa, Dr. Jekyll's dog Veenie, the {{Mummy}}'s dog Mummfrey and the Film/CreatureFromTheBlackLagoon's gold fish.
* ''WesternAnimation/ScaryLarry'' is about a band consisting of a vampire vocalist, a wolfman guitarist, a Frankenstein's Monster drummer, a mummy bassist, and an alien keyboardist.
* The ''WesternAnimation/SpiderWoman'' episode "Dracula's Revenge" had Spider-Woman fight Dracula, the Wolfman, and FrankensteinsMonster.
* ''WesternAnimation/TheSuperheroSquadShow'' had this in the episode "This Man-Thing, This Monster!", where Iron Man worked with the Supernatural Hero Squad (whose members included Werewolf By Night and Man-Thing) and fought against Dracula and an army of Living Mummies. Cameos are also made by Frankenstein's Monster and the Zombie.
* The ''WesternAnimation/SpiderManAndHisAmazingFriends'' episode "The Bride of Dracula!" pitted Spider-Man, Iceman, and Firestar against Dracula, a robotic Frankenstein monster, and a werewolf butler.
* In ''WesternAnimation/{{Ultimate Spider-Man}}'', the Howling Commandoes consisted of Werewolf By Night, Frankenstein's monster, the Living Mummy, Man-Thing, and Max the Invisible Man.
