''[[http://dracufrank.quinlancircle.com Invisible Werewolf Dracula meets Vampire Mummy Frankenstein]]'' is an action-comedy WebSerialNovel by Joi and Trueman Massat.

In a world where the classic monsters of [[Literature/{{Dracula}} gothic]] [[Literature/{{Frankenstein}} literature]] and [[Franchise/UniversalHorror black-and-white movies]] are real, the mummified corpse of Frankenstein's Monster is revived (or, rather, undeadified) by Count Dracula. Together they sip wine, philosophize about the meaning of monsterdom in a cruel world, and kick ass.

!! This series provides examples of:
* BadassNormal: Our party includes the titular super-strong monsters, a fairly strong gill-man, a magic cat...and a just-plain-human retired sprinter. A case can also be made for Commander Alice, who is pretty normal (she's a werewolf, which sounds cool...[[spoiler: until you realize she's only as strong as most of the world's population]]).
* BubblePipe: Robert Fishman. He doesn't use a bubble pipe because he's a child, however, [[DontExplainTheJoke but because he's a fish man.]]
* CatsAreSnarkers: When Trials isn't making [[HurricaneOfPuns painful puns,]] she's just plain rude.
* {{Deuteragonist}}: While Dracula is the team leader, Adam is more the POV character. Still, as a party member, he's TheLancer to Dracula's [[TheHero Hero]].
* EmergencyTransformation: Trials escaped death via [[IncrediblyLamePun witch trial]] by entering the body of a black cat.
* ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin
* FishPeople: Robert Fishman. Much like a [[Film/CreatureFromTheBlackLagoon a certain movie monster,]] he's also [[SingleSpecimenSpecies the only one of his kind.]]
* FrankensteinsMonster: The "Frankenstein" here takes more after [[Literature/{{Frankenstein}} the original novel]] than any movie adaptation: moody, biblical, definitely not lumbering, even goes by the name Adam.
* FurAgainstFang: Dracula may be part-werewolf, but he's definitely fighting for Team Vampire, so to speak.
* GiantFlyer: Bistritz, the giant bat with the entire Castle Dracula on his back.
* [[spoiler: [[InTheFutureHumansWillBeOneRace In The Future, Humans Will Be One Race (Of Werewolves)]]]]
* [[spoiler: KillSat: One specifically for killing vampires—it's loaded with solar energy.]]
* LighterAndSofter: This story is all about lightening and softening the lives of classic, tortured monsters, who go from [[ByronicHero brooding and unloved]] to [[TrueCompanions allies and friends.]]
* LonelyTogether: The band of heroes, and seemingly also the band of villains. Try finding a character who ''hasn't'' been a loner.
* MelancholyMoon: If a character (including the narrator) is focusing on the moon, they're usually feeling sorrowful [[spoiler: [[WeirdMoon because the moon has been all but destroyed]] by [[AsteroidMiners space mining]]]].
* MonsterAdventurers
* MonsterMash: Right away, we have all our bases covered...but don't forget about the gill-man, the black cat, the hunchbacked lab assistant...
* MyGodWhatHaveIDone: When Adam [[spoiler: puts together his bride, only for her to run away.]]
--> [[spoiler: “I have done nothing but loose another sorry creature unto this world.”]]
* NightAndDayDuo: Dracula (who's often referred to as the so-and-so "of the night") and Adam (wears a sun disc, can radiate light).
* NinjaPirateZombieRobot: The heroes, [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin naturally.]]
* OffscreenMomentOfAwesome: Invoked. The largest-scale battle in the novel—the one where Dracula faces a werewolf battalion and [[KillSat a massive vampire-destroying satellite]]—goes unseen, meaning we never figure out [[spoiler: how he knocked it out of space, ''from the Earth's surface.'']] It's implied that the scene was just too gruesome.
--> '''Dracula:''' “The reason I send my friends away is that this—what ''I'' am about to perform—is a maneuver no man nor wolf should wish to see. ''So you shall not.''”
* OurWerewolvesAreDifferent: Werewolfism, originally [[ViralTransformation spread through bites,]] is now administered via a convenient injection and kept active full-time by "mini-moons" orbiting their heads.
* OurVampiresAreDifferent: Several of the classic weaknesses have been nerfed; crosses only hurt when they look directly at them, garlic is "merely incredibly irritating," and a stake through the heart only kills them if it's silver. They're only WeakenedByTheLight (or sunburned), though Adam, who is thought to be a [[DaywalkingVampire ''solar'' vampire,]] seems unaffected. So the most effective vampire counter-measures are...[[BeatItByCompulsion throwing rice on the ground (so they will be forced to count it)]] [[WeaksauceWeakness and not inviting them into your house.]]
* RagtagBunchOfMisfits
* SavingTheWorld: [[ZigZaggingTrope Zig-zagged:]] first subverted [[spoiler: (they're saving [[FirstContactFauxPas a different world)]]]] and then played straight [[spoiler: after Alice suggests they go all the way]].
* {{Transhuman}}: It's surprisingly easy to see the werewolves as [[BioAugmentation biologically enhanced people]] [[spoiler:and to compare their society to a transhumanist {{dystopia}}]]. (This would make Dracula a ProHumanTranshuman.)
* WellIntentionedExtremist: Igor. He arguably ''has'' created his utopia [[spoiler: by turning as many people as possible into werewolves]], and everyone loves it...[[RagtagBunchOfMisfits except for the few outcasts and non-conformists...]]
* WeWillUseLasersInTheFuture: Of the [[RayGun Ubiquitous Lasers]] variety. Oddly enough, laser guns [[SchizoTech intermingle with]] standard guns and [[SilverBullet the typical monster-killing fare.]]
* WorldOfWeirdness: Starts from "what if ''Frankenstein'' and ''Dracula'' really happened?" and gets much more absurd from there.
* VampiresAreRich: We would expect nothing less from Count Dracula (though how he can have been rich and on the run [[spoiler: for ''centuries'']] is unexplained and, even if it was, [[RuleOfCool would probably make]] [[RuleOfFunny no sense anyway]]), but the trope applies to all the vampires shown. Even Adam, who doesn't have a penny to his name, struts around in ancient Egyptian finery.
