Dr. Victor Frankenstein
- The Chick: Elizabeth is the only female in the main cast.
- Complete Immortality: Thanks to her husband's immortality serum, Elizabeth is no longer ages, is immune to vampirism and regenerates from all manner of harm.
- Four-Philosophy Ensemble: Represents the Optimist.
- Team Mom: Her maternal instincts make her the one person who actual cares about her two, elderly children and the Creature.
Professor Sanguinaire Polidori
Professor Sanguinaire Polidori
- Awesome McCoolname
- Complete Immortality: Thanks to Victor's immortality serum, Polidori no longer ages and regenerates from all manner of harm.
- Deadpan Snarker
- Depraved Homosexual: Besides being the most sardonic, proper and classiest resident of Castle Frankenstein, he is very open about his kinks, ranging from having a candle-light dinner with Victor's disembodied penis to masturbating in a public bathroom after getting his previously disembodied arm back.
- Four-Philosophy Ensemble: Represents the Apathetic.
- Berserk Button: Don't call the Creation a "Monster"... although he's more likely to go into a depression then a rage over it.
- Drama Queen: While everyone else in Somewhere in Eastern Europe have long since been acclimated to their monstrous nature, the Creation insists on waxing ennui about his unnatural existence.
- Frankenstein's Monster
- Sesquipedalian Loquaciousness: Has a habit of speaking like a Romanticist.
- Chuck Cunningham Syndrome: Disappeared between the first and second seasons along with his brother Gustav. Their existence is alluded to once in Season 2 when Elizabeth says she wants another baby.
Somewhere in Eastern Europe
- Bigger Is Better in Bed: Given how he flaunts it, it is probably true.
- Comically Lopsided Rivalry: Dracula seems to take great pleasure in the affair Elizabeth has with him, constantly rubbing it in Victors face and going on and on about his sexual prowess. If only Victor cared.
- Our Werewolves Are Different: Thanks to a werewolf him from the future, Lawrence became the wolfman. Here, he is virtually unkillable unless he is shot with a silver bullet by someone that loves him.
- You Already Changed the Past: He tries to go back in time to kill himself, only to reveal that the werewolf that turned him into a werewolf was himself from the future.
- The Alcoholic: He starts drinking too much due to the stress of his job thanks to Victor. It is dialed Up to Eleven after hanging out with Jesus, eventually leading to his own death.
- Don't Fear the Reaper: While he paralyzes mortals with fear, immortals on the other hand don't seem all that bothered with it. Victor and Polidori in particular have nothing but contempt for him.
- The Grim Reaper: Death has the classic, Grim-Reaper appearance, complete with a dark red cloak, a Sinister Scythe and a pair of wings.
Joe the Vampire Hunter
- Go-Karting with Bowser: Joes greatest life ambition is to kill Dracula, as well as killing any vampire he finds. Depending on the episode, he would be stalking vampires - even stating once that killing Dracula was his life-long goal - while in other cases he would be drinking in the same bar as them, being in the same steam-bath with them and even enjoying movies with them.
- Patriotic Fervor: Being the redneck that he is, Joe has a huge hard-on for America, the American flag and the Founding Fathers, killing vampires in their name and having a Heroic BSoD when he is forced to kill the recently sired Founders.
- Science Is Wrong: He seems to have this opinion (or at least of mad science).
Dr. Jekyll/Mr. Hyde
- Abhorrent Admirer: Henry seems to be an admirer of Frankenstein (who does not appreciate his admiration).
- Straw Misogynist: Or at least Hyde is. At one point, Mr. Hyde attempts to hit on Elizabeth and a gender-bent Victor. When they reject him, he derisively responds with "Lesbians!"
Griffin the Invisible Man
- Fratbro: He has the airs of an obnoxious party goer that thinks (or at least tries) to be cooler than he really is. Even his attempts at looking "interesting" come across as weaksauce to his father.
- "Well Done, Son!" Guy: He does what he thinks is interesting (having a "neck-tat" and a pet ferret with a neck-tat) out of a desire to please his father, who is disappointed in him because he is much too normal for his liking.
- Mistaken for Pedophile: It turns out that Michael actually hates children, only hanging around them out of a desire to look "interesting" to other people.
President Barack Obama
- Freudian Excuse: Literally. Adolf would have dreams of him as a toddler breast-feeding from a rabbi. He visited Sigmund Freud over this dream. It is strongly implied that this is why he is so self-aware in his bigotry.
- Troubled Sympathetic Bigot: While he is a horrible anti-semite, he seems to view such opinions less a creed to live by and more of a mental handicap that haunts his every waking moment. Thus, he goes to Frankenstein to cure himself of his hatred.
Mohandas K. Gandhi
Vice President Lyndon B. Johnson
- Comically Small Demand: He goes to Dr. Frankenstein - a man that can use scientific processes to switch brains, bring back the dead and enhance the human condition - to get him socks. He even offers Victor eternal paradise for them.
- It's All About Me: His whole deal in "Edgar Allan Poe's Jesus!", always going on about how great he is, to the point of being responsible for the deaths of various historical figures (Joan of Arc, Elvis Presley and even Death himself) and not even noticing or caring.
- Jesus Was Way Cool: Seems pretty laid-back all things considered. Subverted, as "Edgar Allan Poe's Jesus!" revealing that he has a monstrously inflated ego, making him so obnoxious that Death himself dies of alcohol poisoning and an over-dosing of Jesus.
- Obliviously Evil: Due to his own selfishness, he is responsible for the deaths of various historical figures like Abraham Lincoln, Joan of Arc, Elvis Presley and Death.
John Belushi/Jim Belushi
- Became Their Own Antithesis: Jekyll's potion was designed to turn someone into the worst one can be, Jim being what is left of John without his charm and wit.
- Jekyll & Hyde: Jim's the Hyde to John's Jekyll
- Take That!: Big one towards Jim Belushi.
- The Unwitting Comedian: In a rare non-tragic take on the trope, everything John Belushi does, no matter how gross or unsightly he behaves is considered funny due to his charisma. The opposite can be said of Jim.
- Fantastic Racism: Hyralius actively mocks Asians with racist, sterotypes in both how he dresses and the jokes he tells as he destroys everything around him.
