This index is a list of media adaptations featuring the public domain vampire Dracula, who originated from the famous horror novel of the same name.


    open/close all folders 

    Anime & Manga 
  • Hellsing (1997-2012): The main character, Alucard, is pretty much Dracula himself (combined with Vlad the Impaler), just with a more modern look, and elements of the novel crop up here and there.
  • Dracula Everlasting (2012): An OEL (Original English Language) manga, which sees Dracula taking over the body of a young man, and the descendants of the heroes of the novel facing off against him.
  • A manga adaptation under the "Manga Classics" line was released in October 2019.
  • Dracula: Sovereign of the Damned was a...loose anime adaptation of the Tomb of Dracula comic book series.

    Comic Books 
  • The Tomb of Dracula (1972-1979): A Marvel Comics series starring Dracula as the main antagonist, featuring the stories of people trying to stop him, as well as his own trials and tribulations.
  • Dracula vs. King Arthur (2007): An indie comic in which Dracula is sent back in time to take over the Kingdom of Camelot, thus forcing King Arthur and his knights into a confrontation with the vampire.
  • Victorian Undead (2010): A DC Comics / WildStorm miniseries that involved Sherlock Holmes fighting against the supernatural. The second volume involved Holmes getting involved in the events of the novel.
  • Santa Versus Dracula (2013): Another indie comic, in which Dracula tries to take over the North Pole in order to claim Santa Claus' job, and thus gain the ability to enter houses without invitation. Santa and his friends fight back against him.
  • Grimm Fairy Tales: Van Helsing (2015-2018): A mini-series starring a female descendant of Abraham Van Helsing, whose first four issues involved fighting Dracula. A sequel would likewise see her fight him again.

    Literature 
  • Dracula (1897), the original novel written by Bram Stoker. Although the author never made any official sequels or adaptations, the fact that the titular character entered the public domain, has resulted in him becoming a prolific stock character appearing in many unrelated works of fiction.
  • The Dracula Tape (1975): A somewhat comedic take on the original tale, in which Dracula depicts the story from his point of view, and how things in the novel were actually a huge misunderstanding. It also had a sequel in which Dracula encounters Sherlock Holmes.
  • Anno Dracula (1992): A series of books which depict an Alternate Universe, where Dracula actually won during the events of the novel, and proceeds to spread his vampirism through most of Europe. Despite the title, Dracula isn't the main character (though he does make appearances), instead following a series of various characters and how the undead lifestyle affects London.
  • Out of the Dark by David Weber has, as part of the big twist at the end, Dracula's appearance.
