YMMV: Varney the Vampire
- Older Than They Think: Predates Dracula by more than 50 years, and the original folklore is far older even than that. (However, several vampire traits commonly taken for granted are newer even than Bram Stoker's novel.)
- Seinfeld Is Unfunny: Much of the novel's innovation falls victim to this effect, such as the idea of a vampire with fangs, puncture marks on the throat, and the sympathetic vampire, all of which are standards in later vampire fiction.
