Vampire Counts from ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer}}'' have several bat units, including Bat Swarms (regular bat), Fell Bats (bigger bats), and Varghulfs (frickin' huge bat-like vampire monsters!). Winged Vampire Lords and monsters!).
*** Many vampires, particularly those of the
Strigoi bloodline, are more capable of either turning into monstrous bats or growing bat-like wings.
** TabletopGame/WarhammerAgeOfSigmar:
*** Bats are the most common fauna of the Realm of Shyish ranging from swarms of regular bats to the monstrous Fell Bats. These bats are often afflicted with the Soulblight curse turning them into bloodthirsty hunters who accompany the armies of the Soulblight vampires.
*** The Vargheists of the Soulblight armies and the Varghulf Courtiers of the Flesh-eater Courts are
vampires who have lost their humanity, devolving into hideous bat-creatures.
** TabletopGame/{{Necromunda}}:
*** Some areas of the Necromundan Underhive are infested
with swarms of carrion bats. These scavengers have ferocious piranha-like jaws that they use to steal mouthfuls of flesh from corpses and living Underhivers alike.
*** Ripper Jacks are
bat-like characteristics.alien creatures that inhabit abandoned domes in the Underhive. Ripper Jacks attack by enveloping their prey’s head with their wings while biting and gouging their eyes and throat. Many Beastmaster Wyrds are able to control Ripper Jacks and fight alongside them during battle.

* In ''Lifeforce'' the vampiric aliens' (they steal our energy rather than blood) true form is giant bats. Oddly, in the source book ''Space Vampires'' (subtle) their form is more like octopi, which makes no sense whatsoever.

* An ''ComicBook/{{Exiles}}'' story arc features an alternate universe ComicBook/{{Morbius}} who was transformed into a monstrous bat creature when a sorcerer used magic to bring out the worst in him. Something similar happened to yet another AU Morbius (seen in *Spider-Man Heroes and Villains Collection* published by Eaglemoss), who became more like a vampire bat and grew wings.

* ''VideoGame/TotalWarWarhammer'': The Vampire Counts can field a large number of monstrous bats, with one unit so far representing the swarm of shrieking bats variety, with the rest being increasingly horrifying Dire Bats.
** Fellbats are "small" (bird-of-prey sized), expendable, and attack in large groups, used to harass and "tarpit" units.
** Vargheists and the flightless, tank-sized Varghulfs are degenerate vampires who have lost themselves to their bloodthirst, the first through centuries of imprisonment and the second willingly.
** Terrorgheists are the terrifying, undead husks of dragon-sized bats that live in the Sylvanian wilderness.

* In [[OurCryptidsAreMoreMysterious cryptozoology]], we get many bizarre bat creatures that typically fall under the Dire Bat category. The Indonesian [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Orang-bati Orang-Bati]], for example, is a large batlike monster that's said to [[EatsBabies eat babies]]. The African [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kongamato Kongamato]] and its cousin the Olitiau, are often claimed to be [[PrehistoricMonster monstrous pterodactyl-like creatures]], but their descriptions and most eyewitness reports of the animals seem to suggest something more like large bats. In behavior, it's said to have a HairTriggerTemper and being quick to attack anything that so much as makes eye contact with it, fitting it squarely into this trope. The Javan [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ahool Ahool]] (which, interestingly enough, is named after the sound it allegedly makes) appears to be mostly harmless by comparison, thouth, and mainly feeds on fish.
