~ Abraham during numerous attempts to destroy Dracula
I realised a human could never defeat a monster, but I wouldn’t let our family legacy down and so I began to search for an answer and then I saw it in an ancient text.
~ Abraham realizing that he will never defeat Dracula.

Professor Abraham Van Helsing is the main antagonist of Hotel Transylvania 3: Summer Vacation. He is a notorious monster hunter, Dracula's archenemy and Ericka Van Helsing's great-grandfather.

He is voiced by Jim Gaffigan.

History

Sometime in the 19th century, Abraham Van Helsing was born into a family famous for hunting monsters. Abraham's family believed that monsters were disgusting and dangerous. His family had already been well known throughout Transylvania for centuries by the time Abraham rose to the rank of monster hunter.

During the late 19th century, Abraham came across the famous vampire, Count Dracula. Abraham vowed to destroy Dracula and all other monsters. Despite his persistence and ambition, Abraham was never able to succeed in defeating Dracula. Eventually Abraham gave up trying to kill Dracula, accepting that no human could defeat Dracula, but his hatred towards him and other monsters never went away.

Personality

Unlike his original incarnation from the Bram Stoker novel, this Van Helsing is xenophobic, ruthless, ill-tempered, deluded, and utterly relentless in his ultimate goal; to destroy all monsters. He goes to extreme lengths to accomplish this goal, even disfiguring his own body and prolonging his life to see an end to monsters. At first he acted deluded and delusional, believing what he was doing was right and even sacrificing his great-granddaughter to do so.

Trivia

  • Despite being the main antagonist, he only had a brief amount of screentime.
  • Unlike many versions of Van Helsing, this version is portrayed as an evil, deluded monster-hating hunter while Dracula is the true hero. He has been trying to hunt and kill Dracula and every other monster thinking that they are menaces to humans.
    • Although his actions were unexpectable to monsters, Abraham still can consider as an anti-hero (he is just a guy who wants the humanity safe and he was surprised when Dracula saves him rather than leaving him to his death).
  • In the movie, he started out as an antagonist to anti-hero. He was wrong about Dracula when he saved his great-granddaughter and his life and was wrong about the monsters. He made peace with them.
