Halloween Gift Guessers: Gift of the 9th Great Power

Perhaps the 9th time is the charm...

Day three is upon us, and this gift comes as no surprise to me. Every year we get a coffin gift, and a similar item is inside - but I'll get to that later. Anyways, this gift is the Gift of the 9th Great Power, and it is priced at 300 Robux.
Vlad the Impaler IX
Basically how gifts have gone since 2011, there is one Vlad gift per year. Vlad is an absolute monarch from the 1700s, who basically killed anybody who didn't agree with them - one of his favorite ways of killing was to impale people - I'm not going to go into detail. Anyways, Vlad's father, whose name was also Vladimir, was in a society known as the Order of the Dragons. Well, Vlad the Impaler got the nickname "Dracula" because "Draykula" meant "Son of the Dragon." There's your fun fact of the day - Dracula is an actual person, and the actual Vlad is the basis of the normal coffin gift that we get each gift season.

As this image, taken from IndexFile's twitter, and made by TheInnovative goes, we've had Vlad IV (son of the original Vlad the Impaler) all the way to Vlad VIII. The next item that we're going to get in the series is Vlad IX - a pretty long distanced descendant of the original Vlad, but it'll do. Oh, I almost forgot to say why I think it's Vlad..

Every year, we get a Vlad gift. The gift is a coffin. This gift is a coffin. This gift hints at the "9th great power" and "9th times the charm." This is all about these hats being "descendants" of the original Vlad the Impaler - Vlad III, who ruled by using fear as a weapon. Anyways, the coffin gift finally came out this year, and the item will obviously be Vlad IX, or Vlad the 9th. 
And I really hope that it looks like the image above.

Thanks for reading, I'll be back tomorrow with the next gift!
