* GermansLoveDavidHasselhoff: The American comic was kept alive and on a monthly schedule despite weak sales in the U.S., largely due to its popularity in Britain.
* MemeticMutation: A screenshot of Dracula eating a hamburger from the anime movie adaptation.
* {{Squick}}: When he is stranded in Himalayas, Dracula is forced to feed on a rotting corpse to satiate his bloodlust. This is described in vivid detail.
* WhatAnIdiot: An human mob tries to destroy Dracula at his tomb just after sundown. As a result, Dracula's reaction, since he had just emerged and needed to get some sustenance soon, to the invaders is essentially, "Ah, room service!" and indulges taking them down.
* WhatDoYouMeanItsNotForKids: The loose adaptation ''Dracula: Sovereign of the Damned'' is a rather curious example of this: on the one hand, for an {{Anime}}, the [[LimitedAnimation style and quality]] are remarkably similar to that of any SaturdayMorningCartoon, and the language the various characters use in the English dub is clearly a TactfulTranslation, containing no swearing whatsoever (provided one recognizes that the word in the title is being used in its proper religious context) even in scenes where characters are clearly intended to be [[GoshDarnItToHeck using some nasty language]] with each other. The content, however, is clearly ''not'' intended for children, as it includes a couple of scenes showing Dracula's foes slain and impaled on stakes (when he's explaining how he came to be known as Vlad the Impaler), a human-sacrificing Satanic cult ([[AnimationAgeGhetto in a time]] when WesternAnimation tended to steer clear of such horrific religious subjects), some splashing of blood (during fights; the biting scenes are merely implied), and a bit of female nudity from the back with the woman turned just enough to the side to expose a fair bit of SideBoob. It's very much like a children's cartoon, yet one gone horribly, ''horribly'' wrong.
