Monster High is a parody of Victorious. Or the other way around.
A witch character will eventually be introduced to the main cast.Heck, it's weird that they haven't already; it seems like an obvious choice.
The future "witch" character will be male.It makes sense to me, because the "Medusa" (a monster that is typically female) character is male.
Draculaura is somehow related to Jillian Venters, author of Gothic Charm School.
An alien character will be introduced.
A dragon character will eventually appear.Possibly male, but hard to say for sure.
Monster High will start introduced characters based off more obscure monsters.They've already run through well-known monsters like Frankenstein's monster, mummies, and werewolves. It's unlikely that they'd want to repeat a monster several times, so they'll start going through lesser known myths for character monster inspiration.
There will be an Invisibilly doll coming out.It's just not finished yet.
Monster High will soon become a breakout hit, on the level of My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic.
Monster High will eventually deal with an Alien Invasion.
Somebody on the CGI team has a foot fetish.In the CGI movies, there seem to be rather more shots of the ghouls' feet than there are in the Flash cartoons. Also, Headmistress Bloodgood's CG boots are pointier and have higher heels than in the Flash.
The CGI movies are an Alternate Continuity.
Clawdeen is either a lesbian.
Draculaura's mother is a human woman, thus making her a dhampire.
Frankenstein Monsters define days differently from humans.
Draculaura doesn't get along well with her mother or her stepmothers.Given that Dracula is, in almost every single adaptation, polygamous, it is reasonable to assume that he has the same 3 Brides that he has in his books. Based on the personalities they were given in Van Helsing, it can be assumed that: Aleera (redhead, stepmother) is hostile to Draculaura because Dracula genuinely cares for her. She is very subtle about it to avoid the Count's ire. Marishka (blond, stepmother) is not unkind to Draculaura, but is a bit of a bimbo and cannot really relate to her on any meaningful level. Verona (brunette, mother) is cold and rather distant, unable to give Draculaura much in the way of attention or affection.
Draculaura will never possess the supernatural abilities common to vampires.In the webisode The Good, the Bat, and the Fabulous, Draculaura's inability to change shape is explained by her not being old enough, but I think it's due to the fact that she's a Vegetarian Vampire. Vampires feed on blood because they are the undead, and blood is the source of life, held by many world mythologies to be a substance of great power. Draculaura's consumption of fruits and veggies with iron supplements may provide her with the nutrition she needs to survive, but they lack blood's mystical properties, thus they cannot fuel her inborn powers. This explains why Draculaura is unable to fly, change shape, hypnotize people, etc.
Jackson Jekyll is a Trans-manHe is voiced by a woman(this is more obvious in his Holt Hyde persona) and he does appear slightly more feminine than the other males in the cast. It would make sense given that he is a new kid at the school( hoping to pass without awkward conversations with people who knew him as a 'she' and all that). Holt Hyde then is either the drag king persona he developed when he was younger and just beginning to explore his identity or more like the original Jekyll/Hyde the man he simultaneously wants to be but is also afraid of being.
Draculaura was one of the female vampires who almost attacked Johnathan Harker.In Bram Stoker's novel, Harker was molested by three female vampires (one blond, two brunettes). While they are generally believed to be Dracula's brides, their conversation among themselves makes it equally likely that only the blond is his wife and the brunettes are his daughters. And since Draculaura mentions in her diary that she refuses to return to traditional vampire ways . . .
Draculaura's mother became permanently beyond undead in an incident involving blood and some sort of mistake on Draclaura's part. Draculaura blamed herself for this and resolved to be a Vegetarian Vampire as atonement for her perceived mistake.Her diary seems to imply that the disappearance of her mother had something to do with her acting like a traditional vampire. Given her Nice Girl persona, even if the incident causing her mother's disappearance wasn't her fault, Draculaura might blame herself anyway and became a Vegetarian Vampire because she believed that consuming blood caused the loss of her mother.
Spectra Vondergeist and Ghoulia Yelps are the same person.How is that may you ask? You see Spectra is a teenage ghost, meaning she died young and Ghoulia is a teenage zombie, meaning she also had died young. What if Ghoulia died when she was a normie and became Spectra the ghost and whatever creates zombies in the Monster High universe had got to her corpse and it became Ghoulia the zombie, call me crazy but this is just a WMG.
The "A" in C.A. Cupid's name stands for "Aphrodite".
In "Escape from Skull Shores", the reason Frankie looked so much like that scientist is because her head is the scientist's head.She was made from parts of different people, right? Maybe that scientist was one of them.
Operetta and Robecca Steam are sistersIn a way. Operetta's father is the Phantom of the Opera. In the novel, it's mentioned that Erik (the Phantom) was capable of building convincing-looking humanoid automata - in other words, he used to build very human-like robots for people. Perhaps he built himself a companion or child or something, but then left her behind when he started "haunting" the opera house, where he lived in the underground catacombs.
Draculaura has a learning disabilityAs mean as it sounds... who knows why this could be- perhaps a result of being 1600 years old and born in an era when humans were not as advanced, maybe a result of not drinking blood. But regardless, she's gone to school for over 400 years(at least 400, probably many more) and seems to have not learned a damn thing. She believed that Valentine's Day was created for her for 400 years, likely ignoring any and all historical evidence to the contrary(even forgoing the MH universe's "monsters are real" alternate history, we can likely assume that the history was similar enough). She's impulsive and never seems to act very smart. We can forgive Cleo for not having a grand education despite age(she was sealed away for a long time), but Draculaura has no excuse beyond a physical or mental disability for not being a font of knowledge for her age.
Ghoulia is autistic.According to her profile, she needs to have a schedule planned and deals poorly with last-minute changes. This tendency, plus her introversion, studious nature, and academic and computer skills are traits commonly associated with high-functioning autism.
Draculaura's past involves her being a very violent vampire.When she would feed her victim would end up being ripped to shreds causing her kills to be very bloody. Something must have happened that made her disgusted with herself and decide to change herself. Its entirely possible that blood is a trauma trigger for her; a cause of fainting is emotional distress after all.
Ghoulia Yelps actually can speak English.The reason she doesn't is because the other zombies are prejudiced against zombies that can speak anything other than zombie. The Phantom of the Opera— namely, a segment is taken note for note from Pink Floyd's "Echoes". Operetta is the daughter of the Phantom, but she's themed around modern rock music rather than classic opera and plays a guitar. One has to wonder if Mattel had the controversy in mind when they came up with the character.
Monster High takes place in a modernized society a lot like ours, but in the futureWhile they live in a modernized time, it never explicitly says that they live in our time and could actually be in the future. Draculaura is 1600 years old and predates Dracula's actual date, not to mention Cleo pre-dating mummification, but only if they were in this year (2010/2011). The diaries also never state a specific year. Ignoring the book series continuity, it would make everything fit and everyone can be the ages that are claimed.
Van Helscream was rightThanks a lot ghouls. You've doomed us all.
A Season 3 webisode will focus on Hoo-Dude seeking vengeance against Frankie.As the webisode that introduced Spectra Vondergeist showed, Frankie brushed off Hoo-Dude with uncharacteristic coldness, much like Victor Frankenstein did to her father in the eponymous novel. And we all know how that turned out.
Season 1 was an inaccurate video series made by Spectra and Toralei.In "The Nine Lives of Toralei", Spectra's video (which Toralei enthusiastically approves of) shows Toralei, Meowlody, and Purrsephone arriving at Monster High when Frankie, Draculaura, and Clawdeen are already fearleaders. In season 2, however, the catgirls were all fearleaders before Frankie even started at school. Now, in season 2, Frankie has to persuade Draculaura and Clawdeen to join the squad. In season 1, we see Draculaura and Clawdeen (and also Lagoona) on the squad before Frankie accidentally tries out. The season 1 portrayal is compatible with Spectra's video from season 3, but doesn't fit with the continuity of season 2. However, it all fits together if all of season 1 is part of Spectra's inaccurate video. As further supporting evidence, while Cleo is just stuck-up in seasons 2 and 3, she is outright malicious in season 1. Since Toralei dislikes Cleo, is is reasonable that she would want to portray her in a particularly negative light.
Slenderman's Daughter/Son is at Monster High
Lagoona is really the daughter of Cthulhu.This WMG may be nightmare fuel-rific for a children's toy line, but she was never called the Daughter of the Creature of the Black Lagoon, but rather the daughter of the Sea Monster, what if she only says that so she doesn't scare everyone at Monster High. Holt's diary mentions that her father stays submerged under the water, and according to Lagoona's diary he never leaves the water, if he leaves the water their would be disastrous consequences. And the last nail in the coffin is that her father wants her to stay under the water, possibly because once she is old enough, she develops the ability to drive people insane just by looking at them, unless she wore shades like Deuce.
Lagoona is related to a Deep OneThis one is related to the one above, but it isn't about Cthulhu as much as just a random Deep One. The reason Mattel just said "Sea Monster" was a way to avoid the "Viewers are Morons" trope or they couldn't figure out how to make that less scary and more kid friendly (or it could have been copyright issues). (On a more cynical note, maybe they just didn't want kids to stumble on to Lovecraft's work and be exposed to the "n" word).
Skelita Calaveras is related to Manuel Calavera.Somebody had to say it.
Draculaura is actually an amnesiac Jade and Monster High is the Bratz world future
Alternatively, Monster High is Bratz done right
Gill from the webisodes is the son of Abe Sapian.They are both teal-colored Fish People with a slight gargle to their speech. They even look alike.
Ghoulia is the daughter of Solomon Grundy.Because . . . well, he's the only real candidate. Monster High is specifically noted as being attended by the children of FAMOUS monsters, and Grundy is the only really "famous" zombie. Virtually every zombie movie ever made has them occuring strictly in packs with no real identities. I mean, there's also that one Marvel character, but compared to Grundy, he's almost unknown.
Draculaura is the girl from Castlevania Lords of Shadow.
The fake "upstart" Dracula mentioned in Draculaura's past is really Mathias Cronqvist from CastlevaniaThis makes sense considering that Mathias only took the name "Dracula" for himself after he became a vampire, and presumably impersonated Vlad Tepes to give himself some credibility. As for the "upstart" being defeated... Castlevania canon says that Dracula was finally defeated for good in 1999. Monster High takes place after that, and furthermore, we know basically nothing about the 1999 final battle. Draculaura's adoptive father, the "real" Dracula, may have helped in some way. As for his eventual rebirth as Soma Cruz... right now it's irrelevant.
The original Dracula was/is Judas Iscariot.Because if we're tying Monster High to both Dracula and Castlevania, might as well also link it to Dracula 2000. In all seriousness though, Draculaura's father was a Roman; Judas was around in ancient Rome. Possibly he became a centurion after he became a vampire.
In addition to a theory above Ghoulia's mother is Emily somehow
Ghoulia's father is "Thriller" Michael JacksonThis may make the most sense of any guess, when you take into account the intent was to the the children of famous monsters. Romero's films mostly had generic shambling zombies, and while Day Of The Dead had a couple named members, that film never got ingrained into pop culture the way Romero's past zombie films did. And while Tarman from return Of The Living Dead is semi-famous, he may not be all that well known. But remember, Ghoulia dresses mostly in red, her doll comes with a purse that looks like a cassette tape and she has 80s hair. In terms of famous zombies, Michael Jackson from the Thriller music video is probably going to top many lists. And if not for MJ's death, we may have seen some possible reference to this somehow(worth noting that the Thriller zombie MJ parody that was in Plants VS Zombies was actually edited out of the game after his death, so it's not a big stretch to think of companies not wanting to trivialize the situation).
Cleo de Nile is a magical girlMadoka Magica implies that Cleopatra was a magical girl. It is possible that is was actually Cleo de Nile. Her wish was to create a world were monsters could live without being persecuted by normies. The Monster High world is a result of her wish.
At one point, the franchise will feature Joker Jr.Well, if there ever was a monster... Also, three words: Batman: Arkham City.
Monster High takes place in the same universe as Dick Tracy.
