* HorrorHunger: Herbert's got his act together right up until his first attempt to bite Alfred ends with a book in his mouth. After that he completely loses it and gets much more animalistic in his second attempt.



* PrettyBoy: The actor's makeup almost always makes him into this.

* InterspeciesRomance

to:

* InterspeciesRomanceInterspeciesRomance: Girl falls for vampire.



* AngerBornOfWorry: He chides Sarah quite harshly and gives her a spanking after disobeying her again. He goes a little overboard, to be sure, but then again his daughter had just been visited by a vampire.

Added DiffLines:

* DramaQueen: If his final reaction at the end of "Wenn Liebe in dir ist" is any indication.


* FailedASpotCheck: After fleeing through the audience, Alfred gets to the other side of the stage, initially unaware that the vampire he just ran from is standing directly behind him. Once he does, he tries to run again, but this time, Herbert's faster.

After they discover Sarah gone, Chagal immediately chased after her to get her back (he fails, but still).

The Broadway version made him into Almost everytime he appears on stage he's wearing a borderline {{Crossdresser}}. different (lavish) costume. Which is remarkable, considering his small amount of stagetime. His mannerisms are appropriately flamboyant as well. And it's one of the reasons his fans love him for it.him.



* GlamourFailure: Being a vampire, he lacks a reflection. Significant, because Alfred discovers the fact during "Wenn Liebe In Dir Ist".

* PsychopathicManchild: Herbert is impulsive and unpredictable and his page-quote implies that there is a certain immaturity towards him. Some actor milk this for all it's worth, adding a generous bit of creepiness to the character.

* AbsentMindedProfessor: He gets a little [[{{Understatement}} distracted]] when he discovers von Krolock's library. Also, he tends to forget the world around him when taking his notes. Even in the middle of a blizzard in darkest Transylvania. Lampshaded by Alfred.

* RomanticVampireBoy: For a given value of "romantic" and "boy". The heroine falls hard for him, he doesn't use mind control to get her to that point, but he's also far from young, physically speaking (let's not even get into his ''real'' age) and is torn between loving her back and seeing her as a Happy Meal.
