Villains Wiki

The Universal Monsters are a team of specific horror villains coming together for a variety of different reasons. They are a sort of villainous counterpart to the Disney Princesses (and the "boys" answer to said girl-oriented franchise).

They are so named because their first significant appearance were in movies made by Universal. However, they appear in non-Universal media (unlike the Princesses, who only appear in Disney media), so the name is non-indicative. Despite this, the team is one of Universal's most profitable franchises.

Much like the Princesses, the appearance of this team is in crossover media. How malicious the Universal Monsters are depends on the specific media portraying them, with movies like Hotel Transylvania and Mad Monster Party portraying them less maliciously, while movies like Van Helsing and The Monster Squad portraying them more maliciously. Dracula is usually seen as the most malicious of all Universal Monsters, save in some very rare cases (fitting his status as the "Prince of Darkness").

The leader of the team is usually Dracula while the member with least appearances is the Creature from the Black Lagoon.

Draculaura, Frankie Stein, Clawdeen Wolf, Cleo De Nile, Lagoona Blue, Invisi Billy and Operetta from Monster High are the offspring of the Universal Monsters.

Halloween Horror Nights

The Universal Monsters are confirmed as the main antagonists of the 2018 Halloween Horror Nights, befitting both their status as the original villains of Universal's horror franchises and also the company's interest in reviving the group.

So far Universal has announced it shall be creating unique mazes based around their iconic monsters and give each monster an updated yet still recognizable look and feel.
