— R. M. Renfield

R. M. Renfield made a cameo appearance in Vlad the Impaler vs Count Dracula. He was portrayed by Morgan Christensen.

Information on the cameo

R. M. Renfield is a fictional character that appears in Bram Stoker's 1897 Gothic horror novel Dracula.

As a patient in Dr. Seward's asylum, Renfield puzzled doctors with his obsession over consuming flies and spiders, claiming that he needed their blood. Renfield is eventually revealed to be under the influence of Count Dracula; Renfield attempts to escape from the hospital multiple times to meet him.

The vampire, whose abilities include control over animals such as rats, bats, and spiders, comes to Renfield with an offer: if Renfield worships him, he promises to make him immortal by providing an endless supply of insects and rats, as Renfield believes that blood is the source of life.

When Dracula returns that night, Renfield is seized by his conscience. He remembers hearing that madmen have unnatural strength, and so attempts to fight Dracula. Renfield's strength leaves him after looking into Dracula's eyes, and Dracula throws him to the floor, killing him.

In the famous 1931 Universal film, his role was conflated with Johnathan Harker, making him the real estate agent who travels to Transylvania to give Dracula possession of Carfax Abbey.

Appearance in the rap battle

Renfield appeared in Count Dracula's second verse, responding with "Yes, master?" after Dracula's call for him. He then grunts upon Dracula's mention of Dr. Seward.
