Added DiffLines:

* MagicVersusScience: While not openly denouncing Dracula's vampirism of the Gothamites as magical or supernatural, for the majority of the movie, Batman approaches it as a typical epidemic and dedicatedly attempts to find and develop a cure to the seemingly supernatural illness. [[spoiler:He eventually does manage to synthesize an antidote from his capture and studying of Vampire!Joker, but it is later shown to have absolutely [[NoSell no effect]] on Dracula himself because unlike the infectious spores he inflicts on normal humans, his body and biology is truly something beyond earthly defines. However, Batman still manages to defeat Dracula by exposing him to a prototype solar energy capacitor that incinerated Dracula much how natural sunlight would.]]

Added DiffLines:

* TheCameo: Although unnamed, the man who stakes Dracula in the flashback is most likely Prof. Abraham Van Helsing. He even has a resemblance to Creator/PeterCushing with the addition of a BadassMustache.


Added DiffLines:

** Dracula refers to himself as [[Film/DraculaPrinceOfDarkness the Prince of Darkness]]
** In the flashback, Dracula's Castle resembles its design in the Franchise/Castlevania games.


** The film has a lot of references to ''Film/BatmanMaskOfThePhantasm'' in that a creature similar to Batman begins to attack Gotham citizens, with the similarity to Batman being used for the GCPD to bring out the entire SWAT force against him, a chase scene where Batman and the figure have a brief battle, and ends with his love interest figuring out his secret identity.
** The people of Gotham assuming Penguin framed Batman for the disappearances at the end of the film is a clear reference to '''Batman Returns''', when he and Catwoman tried to do the same thing.

* NotMeThisTime: Gotham assumes that Penguin was the one responsible for the disappearances at the end of the film. In realty, Penguin was just as much a victim of Dracula than the rest of his minions, but it also provides a highly convenient excuse to get rid of Batman's HeroWithBadPublicity that he got saddled with.
