Hero Overview

Human, monster, unicorn, as long as you're happy.
~ Dracula explains to Mavis that he's okay with her marrying a human.
(Vlad: You're a fool.) Your great-grandson is the sweetest, kindest, most special boy I've ever met. And if you can't give him the love he deserves because he's half-human, then you're the fool.
~ Dracula stands up to his father.
I do not say 'BLEH BLEH BLEH!'
~ Dracula's catchphrase in the film.

Count Dracula, or simply known as Dracula is the main protagonist of the Hotel Transylvania franchise. He is the owner of Hotel Transylvania and the father of his 118, later 125-year old daughter Mavis, father-in-law of Johnny, maternal grandfather of Dennis, son of Vlad Dracula and fiancée/future husband of Ericka Van Helsing.

In the first three films, he is voiced by comedian Adam Sandler, who has also portrayed Happy Gilmore, Billy Madison, Bobby Boucher, Little Nicky, Davey Stone, Whitey Duvall, Zohan Dvir, Skeeter Bronson, Sam Brenner, Q*bert in Pixels and Donny Berger. In the fourth and final film, he is voiced by Brian Hull, who also voiced him the pet short. In The Japanese dub from the movie, he is voiced by Koichi Yamadera, who also voiced Togusa in Ghost in the Shell, Donald Duck, Genie in Aladdin, and Manny in Ice Age.

Appearance

Dracula has pale skin, blue eyes, pointy ears, pointy teeth, and short black hair that is slicked back on his head. He also has quite a long face. He wears a black tuxedo with a black cape and the inside of his cape is Fuschia-purple along with black dress shoes. He also wears a gold ring with a red jewel on his left hand.

Personality

Dracula dearly loved his wife, Martha so much that he was heartbroken when she died, prompting a massive distrust towards humanity. After her death, the only thing that Dracula cared about was his daughter Mavis and would kill if it meant protecting her however as she was his only family, he can be overprotective and overbearing.

He can also be selfish, going out of his ways to secure that no danger would come to Mavis which goes as far as deceiving and lying to her such as making out humanity as being violent monsters who would attack her on sight by having his hotel clerks dressed as humans try to kill her when she began to explore a human village which he also had his clerks make up.

In the second film, he was willing to put his grandson, Dennis in danger as to help him earn his fangs so Mavis wouldn't move away. These actions end up driving the people he was trying to protect away from him.

In the third film, Mavis surprises Drac with a Cruise so he can have a vacation from giving others vacations. He wasn’t excited about it at first until he met the Human captain, Ericka. He started to fall for her when he first laid eyes on her, but what he didn’t know was that Ericka was the great-granddaughter of Dracula’s arch-nemesis, Abraham Van Helsing. They eventually get engaged once they both accept the zing.

Dracula is all too aware of the cruelty and prejudice that humanity was capable of, eventually, he deduced that monster-kind would never be accepted by society and instead reclused their kind in his hotel, Hotel Transylvania.

Dracula's closest friend was Frankenstein and they inevitably shared a lot of history, Drac trusted Frank that much he even made him Mavis' god-uncle.

However, as the first film progresses, Dracula begins to realize his biased opinions towards humanity was untrue.

Although he was initially cold and hostile towards Jonathan, a human who wandered his way into Hotel Transylvania he slowly began to warm up to the human and even accepting him as a suitable mate for his daughter. This was also proven by giving him his blessing to marry his daughter at the end of the film.

When the villagers of Transylvania discovered that he and the rest of the monsters of a fairy tale were real instead of attacking they welcome him, reigniting his trust for humanity.

Despite his faults, Dracula would also go to extreme lengths to make Mavis happy including risking his own life to bring Jonathan back to Transylvania and allowing Mavis to live her own life the way she wanted.

Dracula hated being stereotyped and was always very insulted when people thought he said "blah, blah, blah" and would angrily correct them if a person would do so.

Powers and Abilities

Being a vampire, Dracula can take the form of a bat. He possesses superhuman strength and speed. He is able to fly into the air. He can use hypnosis to erase people's memories or mind control them. He is capable of using telekinesis to move objects.

Trivia

  • This version of Dracula is purely based on the fictional Bram Stoker character, and is not connected to the historical Vlad the Impaler in any way.

    • Both lost their wives to humans (Martha to Dracula and Queen Athena to Triton) and have developed a deep hatred of humans as a result.
    • Both realize that not all humans are bad after meeting a human man who falls for their daughters (Jonathan to Dracula and Eric to Triton).
    • Both are overprotective of their daughters (Mavis and Ariel) until they realize that they're old enough to follow their dreams and both have become grandfathers in the sequels (Dennis to Dracula and Melody to Triton).
    • However, unlike Triton, he didn't start as a supporting character and an anti-hero.
  • Dracula also shares similarities with Mr. Satan from the Dragon Ball franchise.
    • Both of them are comic reliefs.
    • Both of them owned their hotels.
    • Both of them are egotistical, funny, mischievous, and also fatherly towards their daughters.
    • Both of them lost their wives before the series (Martha to Dracula and Miguel to Mr. Satan).
    • Both of them are overprotective to their daughters (Mavis to Dracula and Videl to Mr. Satan).
    • Both of them have hostility relationships with their future sons-in-law but slowly become openly friendly to them (Jonathan to Dracula and Gohan to Mr. Satan).
