* {{Foreshadowing}}: The discussion of how one of the Hades Club members' wife died. It's mentioned she was taking a trip through Europe near Borgo Pass when her carriage had an accident and she was killed. [[spoiler:Of course, those who know Dracula lore, know that's where Dracula's castle lies. So it's implied that after Dracula resurrected and on his way back to London, he attacked the carriage, murdered the driver, kidnapped, drained, and turned the man's wife into a vampire. Bringing her with him to act as the new Bloofer Lady]].

** At the beginning of the game [[spoiler:Arthur Holmwood]] looks at [[spoiler:Alexander's neck]] with barely concealed interest, indicating that [[spoiler:he's actually Dracula in disguise]].

Added DiffLines:

* CrossMeltingAura: Mina has a priest bless a crucifix for Alexander, but using it on Dracula has no effect as he simply bends it backwards in Alex's hand. [[spoiler:But that doesn't mean crosses don't work at all on him; you just need more. A lot more.]]


* ShapeshifterGuiltTrip: [[spoiler:Juliet tries to pull this on the Harker and Alexander -- quickly shapeshifting into their wife and fiancee, respectively -- in a last-ditch effort to save herself. Funnily enough, while Harker quickly sees the through the guise, [[IdiotHero Alexander]] almost falls for it ''despite her transforming in front of them'', at least until Helsing stops him]].

* ContinuitySnarl: If this is suppose to go on from the book, it kinda forgets that Renfield didn't survive the events of it since Dracula killed him in the novel. Yet he's a alive and still insane here.

* PsychicLink: [CallBack Mina still retains her connection to Dracula from the original novel]], although the images she sees of him are much hazier than before. At the least, [[{{Foreshadowing}} she's able to describe him as "different from before, but familiar. He seems close to us. VERY close."]]

Added DiffLines:

* TheCameo: She doesn't appear in the story proper, but Lucy from the original novel is namedropped in a newspaper late into the game, [[VillainsOutShopping having apparently taken out a personal ad]].

Added DiffLines:

* CreditsGag: The final screen of the credits contains the disclaimer "Any resemblance to persons living, dead, [[BreadEggsMilkSquick or undead]] is purely coincidental."


* WhyDontYouJustShootHim: An example pulled by the heroes late in the game when they finally confront Dracula; even if he [[spoiler:[[VoluntaryShapeshifting shapeshifts into a wolf to escape]], ''two people'' have a gun aimed at him for a full 10 seconds, [[IdiotBall and neither of them fires even once]].

Added DiffLines:

* SmokyGentlemensClub: The Hades Club, which Arthur Holmwood sponsors Alexander into. The other club members don't take terribly kindly to him, mostly on account of his being American.

* ChekhovsGun: Pretty much all items you pick up during the story. But the most important one is when Alexander comes across a napkin with an odd drawing on it drawn by Devlin beforehand. [[spoiler:We later find out this was his blueprint to his plan to kill Dracula via a room full of crosses. Alexander uses it himself after Devlin is killed.]]
