* ''Series/MurderSheWrote'': In "The Legacy of Borbey House", the VictimOfTheWeek is an eccentric who paid cash for a large Victorian house, has no mirrors in the house, and is only ever seen outside in the evening. He is is killed by having a stake driven through his heart. His aversion to sunlight and mirrors turns out to be a case of genetic photophobia, and the killer chose a stake through the heart as a murder method to take advantage of the fact that several locals suspected him of being a vampire.

* In an old Creator/ECComics story, the premise of a game show is to guess the job of a special guest. The contestants get steadily more panicky and more creative as they discover that their guest 'works with a red liquid' and it's not soap, or ink, or anything other than what they're thinking about... he's actually a phlebotomist (someone who draws blood). [[spoiler: The contestants are the vampires- the gameshow is for supernatural creatures, and the contestants typically feast on the guest at the end of the show.]]

** A long-ago ''Magazine/{{Dragon}}'' article about how to keep GenreSavvy players guessing suggested that monsters in a D&D game might spread misinformation about themselves. One example it gave was a pit fiend going by the title of "Vampire Lord", so would-be heroes would load themselves down with useless garlic and stakes.

* Following on from the Vetinari example below, one of the fics in "[[https://archiveofourown.org/works/6220663 Ten Alternate Universes: Havelock Vetinari]]" by Paul A includes the observation that if someone as subtle as Vetinari ''was'' a vampire, he wouldn't look so much like one.

* In ''Discworld/MakingMoney'' Mister Bent is suspected of being a vampire due to his dark clothing, mysterious past, obsessive counting, staying at Mrs. Cake's boarding house, where supernatural creatures often reside, and always showing up at the bank before light and leaving after dark. [[spoiler: It turns out he was born a ''clown''. He's just very dedicated to his job.]]

*** And yet again in ''LightNovel/FateApocrypha'' he's summoned as a Lancer and [[BerserkButton rather sore]] about the whole vampire reputation, and while he tries to be mature and ignore it, depictions of him in that state end up getting destroyed. His second Noble Phantasm, ''Legend of Dracula'', embraces the vampire image and does devastating damage to his opponents, though he doesn't like using it since he believes it's [[NotHelpingYourCase not helping his case]].

Also of note is that his abilities in this state are much more like "[[Film/Dracula1931 the vampire modeled on him]]" than like any actual Nasuverse vampires.

*** And yet ''[[RunningGag again]]'' in ''VideoGame/FateGrandOrder'' Vlad can be summoned as a Berserker, and his Noble Phantasm 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.
