*** And yet ''[[RunningGag again]]'' in ''VideoGame/FateGrandOrder'' Vlad can be summoned as a Berserker, and his second Noble Phantasm from ''Extra'' is locked into an active state. Being summoned into this state ''intentionally'' is his BerserkButton, in unintentional cases, he will generously agree to work together with whoever summoned him.

* ''VampireTheRequiem'' actually has a whole book dedicated to this -- ''Night Horrors: The Wicked Dead'', which outlines the various creatures of the night that have vampiric traits but aren't necessarily on the same tier as the Kindred that are the central focus of the line. Such things include [[OurGhoulsAreCreepier ghuls]], [[ChineseVampire jiang shi]], penanggalan, a parasite that requires blood and eventually overtakes its host (replacing their ''tongue'' in the process), and a machine that rejuvenates humans but gives them a thirst for blood.
* 1st Edition [[TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons AD&D]] had a whole set of monsters called "pseudo-undead", which had the physical appearance, hit dice and attacks of undead, but were ''living'' creatures with none of their special abilities. Pseudo-vampires were among the examples of this creature-type, all varieties of which existed mostly to be used by [=DMs=] as "ringers" for the real thing.

* Early in ''[[AuntDimity Aunt Dimity: Vampire Hunter]]'', five-year-old twins Rob and Will see someone standing in the woods near their riding school who looks like a vampire they saw in a classmate's vampire comic book. Lori checks out their story, convinced they saw someone, and finds footprints and a scrap of red silk the riding instructor missed. It turns out to be[[spoiler: Charlotte [=DuCaral=], a neighbour who wears the cloak, along with zinc oxide sun block and red lipstick, who was in the woods brooding over her lost love, who had promised to elope with her years before but didn't arrive]].

* The title character in ''Literature/EdenGreen'' initially thinks of her friend's infection with an immortal needle symbiote as vampire-like, and mocks the one who infected her as an '[[{{Twilight}} Edward Cullen-wannabe]]'. By the end, she's dropped this idea in favor of treating the needles as an alien corruption that needs to be destroyed.

# Has people begin disappearing when he arrivesthey arrive



This trope is for any instance where a character [[RedHerring is set up as a vampire]], and is then revealed ''not'' to be. It can lead to a massive awkward moment for the character that suspects as much, or it may just serve to deepen the mystery if there is a ''real'' vampire on the loose. In the latter case, the suspect may be a VampireVannabe who is in league with the real thing because they really ''want'' to be one, or they might be [[HumanoidAbomination something even more sinister]]..

* Variation in ''Webcomic/ElGoonishShive'', where Susan flashbacks to an earlier encounter with an 'Aberration' - a person who has used magic in order to become immortal through parasitically leeching off the life-force of others. She starts to describe to her friends about how it had some vampire-like characteristics, realizes her description sounds like it is of a vampire, and decides to say it was one. When her friends ask if it really was one she said [[http://egscomics.com/?date=2010-05-21 'No, not really, but it was a monster that used to be human, hypnotized young women and sucked blood out of their necks. It doesn't matter what I say. You two are going to hear "vampire".']] The accompanying comments say no, it's not a 'real' vampire.

* ''[[ComicBook/JusticeLeagueOfAmerica Justice League]]'', during their "International" period (also known as the ''[[MemeticMutation Bwa-ha-ha]]'' era), ran an arc in which a region of Europe was overrun by "vampires". It's revealed that a mad-scientist had infected innocent people with an artificially mutated mind-controlling strain of porphyria, a blood disease that was once hypothesized to have been the origin of the vampire myths.
