can't believe that , that abomimation is number 1 on the list. Alucard or D should have been #1 easily considering how hardcore and badass they are as vampires. and of course Alucard IS Dracula but with his name backwards.

though i am more surprised that Abel Nightroad from Trinity Blood isnt on this list. not to mentioned that Moka from Rosario + Vampire didn't make the list. i would have easily have her over alucard von mosquiton.

To my knowledge, neither of those characters are related to Dracula, they're just vampires (although one novel-only character from Trinity Blood borrows his name from Vlad Dracul's brother).

Also this list was in order of "strangest" not coolest.

One not mentioned on the list is Hazuki from Tsukuyomi: Moon Phase.

I'm also a bit surprised by the choice of the first. It's also surprisingly easy to find on the net to boot, should one be so inclined to torture themselves.

The worst part of #1 is that it's allegedly based on Tomb of Dracula, which was an excellent comic that introduced the world to Blade. There also were a decent amount of villains to use like Dr. Sun. Also Dracula didn't eat hamburgers.

It is pretty funny. "I'm a vampire, so I crave blood! And that is why I am eating this fully cooked meat patty on a sesame seed bun."

She's never referenced as a descendent of Dracula. Same goes for Hazuki in Moon Phase.

As for Rosario+Vampire, I think there's mention later(near the end of the "Season 2" manga) mentioning that Moka's blood is similar to Dracula(who goes by Alucard in the story). It's some weird thing they added to the story for a plot point that makes no sense at all. But she's not a descendent of Dracula's(spoiler[as her father shows up in the epilogue to train Tsukune]).

Wrong. Mike Toole proved this incorrect at Anime Boston this year during his Marvel Anime panel by showing the exact panel from the original comic that showed Dracula eating a hamburger.

Was the 19th result so spoilerific that even leaving it in white-text would cause reality to melt?

That orange line in the icon for D must be cheese. Maybe the hamburger (cheeseburger really) thing was always there but everyone always overlooks it.

Oh, the #1 pick. Eating the hamburger is definitely the iconic image of him. Although I am rather fond of the scene where brave, honorable Dracula is confronted by enemies, promptly ditches his family, and allows his infant son to take a bullet for him.

Actually, if Alucard is considered Dracula in the Rosario+Vampire Universe, Moka probably does belong on the list. Based on the manga, spoiler[her mother had Alucard's blood, and Moka inherits that as well. It's confirmed in the showdown towards the end of the Second Season manga.] It's a bit complicated, but if we're strictly talking about having the blood of Dracula, then I think she fits the bill.

As for the rest of the list... I don't know Alucard should be on it. If we're talking about the strangest Dracula, Alucard is probably the least "strange". Seeing as how Dracula was the original vampire and supposedly all vampires are created from him, wouldn't any vampire, even if not stated, be a descendant of Dracula?

Conversely by the Van Hellsing legends vampires can't successfully procreate, so Dracula shouldn't have any descendants. [/spoiler]
