Fight Dracula

Everything About Fiction You Never Wanted to Know.
Jump to navigation Jump to search

Everyone knows how tough Dracula is. He's the biggest, meanest, and more importantly, most famous vampire in modern culture. So how do you show just how awesome your character is? Make them fight Dracula.

This trope occurs whenever a previously established character or characters are pitted against Dracula. If the characters who fight Dracula have never appeared before, that is not this trope. So if Dracula were to be pitted against Captain Planet, that would be this, but if a new Dracula movie with an original cast of characters were to come out, that would not count.

In some settings, this makes some sense, but in others, not so much. Note that this trope just involves the character fighting Dracula. They don't actually have to beat him (although in many cases, they find a way to do so).
