  • While in-universe, his creation supposedly inspired Mary Shelley to write Frankenstein, in real-life, he's based on Dr. Victor Frankenstein from Shelley's Frankenstein; Or, The Modern Prometheus. It's a common mistake for people to call the monster Frankenstein, which was pointed out by Velma.
  • It's unexplained how he became a baron.
  • He should be called Lord Basil, not Baron Basil.
  • The legend began in Germany (the "old country" of which Velma speaks), yet it's the village of Transylvania that had, had all the problems. It could be that he restarted his experiments, which might explain what Velma meant by him reclaiming the Von Dinkenstein name and occupation, but these are two things he already had before Velma's (great-)grandparents settled in America.
