When I asked my Literature teacher if she considered Dracula and Dorian Gray to be Byronic Heroes, she said -

“Do you want them to rip your clothes off with their teeth?”

Pretty good definition of a Byronic Hero, really.

And thus the Byronic Hero Test is accepted without contest into literary theory.
