1[[quoteright:350:]] [[caption-width-right:350:''"Hey, look. It's the... [[OhCrap Kraken?]]"'']] * Professor Abraham Van Helsing is probably the scariest, most threatening, and [[{{Gonk}} ugliest]] antagonist in the ''Hotel Transylvania'' series yet, putting Quasimodo and Bela to ''shame''. Not only is he implied to be the direct motivator for Dracula to start his monster-sheltering hotel, but he is ''extremely'' dedicated to exterminate not just Dracula, but monsters in general. Even after decades have passed, he still tries to achieve his goal, somehow converting himself to a {{cyborg}} to keep himself alive. It's clear that his pursuit of monsters has made him lose his mind, to the point of putting his own great-granddaughter in harm's way on at least two occasions. Even his apology and agreement to a refund seems halfhearted at best. [[AdaptationalVillainy Wasn't Van Helsing supposed to be basically the Superman of the Dracula universe at one point?]]* The Kraken greets us as a benign, jazzy lounge singing character with the friendly voice of Music/JoeJonas. Then Abraham acquires the weapon that apparently destroyed Atlantis and which he plans to '''kill all monsters''' with, a piece of hypnotic sheet music that makes the Kraken go murderously berserk, ''roaring'' as [[RedEyesTakeWarning his eyes glow red]]. And he gets close, too: Drac, who [[CurbStompBattle effortlessly took out]] several of Bela's friends, gets ''strangled unconscious''.** Note that he doesn't seem to care, or indeed even ''notice'', that at least one of the vacationers he's targeting for a horrible death - Johnny - is 100% human.* Just the ''sound'' of the music in question. It's catchy, but there's just something very wrong about it.


How well does it match the trope?
