Frankenstein's Monster

Frankenstein's Monster is a monster created by Dr. Frankenstein and used by Dracula as a source of power to bring his children to life.


Despite his fearsome appearance, the creature was actually perfectly peaceful but mentally disturbed, and due to a life of being treated like an outcast, he initially believed humans where the true monsters.

He was initially quite grumpy, but helpful. Leading a difficult life, his own creator was murdered and he hiding from Dracula, as well as being ostracized by most humans as they assumed he was an evil being or a dangerous leper, and because of the hostile reception he had from humanity, the monster was paranoid, jittery, and prone to defensive bursts of anger. However, seeing Anna and van, and being accepted by them, he appeared very loyal and friendly, putting himself through pain to help them. Although he lived a difficult life of bitter isolation and pain, he valued his existence. This might be because he wanted to kill Dracula, and seeing Anna and van accept him as a friend raised his hopes of being accepted by society, as he in the end of the movie, he sailed off out to sea, in hopes of finding a loving place to call home. He was also accustomed to being in great physical pain.

Physical Appearance Edit

In the 2004 film Van Helsing, the monster is shown in a somewhat modernized version of the Karloff design. He is 8 to 9 feet (240–270 cm) tall, has square bald head, gruesome scars, and pale green skin. The electricity is emphasized with one electrified dome in the back of his head and another over his heart. It also has hydraulic pistons in its legs, essentially rendering the design as a steam-punk cyborg. Although not as eloquent as in the novel, this version of the creature is intelligent and relatively nonviolent.

Trivia Edit

While he looked like the incarnation of the creature from the 1931 movie, his personality was closer to that of the original monster from the novel, as he was literate and capable of complex thoughts. Like his incarnation from young Frankenstein, he actually had a happy ending, as he continued his journey to find a family and start a new life. In most stories featuring the creature, he would commit suicide or be killed, usually by being burnt alive.
