She is prone to crying when she has to deal with obstacles, though over the past years she has grown to follow that up with action. In particular her mission to find her childhood friend Elissabat and convince her to accept her role as the next Vampire Queen made waves in the monster world and was what earned her full access to her vampire powers.

Draculaura is sweet, energetic, friendly, sensitive and easygoing, though she can be a bit childish. Even though she doesn't seem to care much of what other monsters think of her, she is much of a trend follower, as well as a "gossip ghoul."

Elissabat - Monster High

Elissabat is a 1,601 year old vampire who grew up among the nobility of Transylvania. She is a childhood friend of Draculaura, as well as the daughter of one of Dracula's closest friends.

Elissabat is an actress who takes her craft very seriously. Since she suffers from severe stage fright, she makes a lot of effort to study, prepare for her roles, and give the best performance possible. Most monsters call her aloof and unapproachable, but it's only because she focuses on her craft and hides her true self from others.

Vampire Cookie - Cookie Run

The Witch, busy baking several Cookies at once, had forgotten to use her favorite high-quality grapes. Instead, she stored them in oak barrels and let age for a long, long time. And with that special grape juice, she made Vampire Cookie. Naturally, it was difficult for Vampire Cookie to wake up at first—after all, his dough contained more than 10% of strong grape juice! Unlike the other Cookies, Vampire Cookie prefers to do nothing but enjoy life. He wasn't even bothered by the heat of the oven and only escaped because his sister, Alchemist Cookie, dragged him outside. With his pale face and smug posture, he likes to relax with a glass of grape juice and ponder the meaning of life
