There are several ways to fall prey to a vampire. Walking around alone at night is just asking for it. Picking up strangers at noisy clubs is the hip modern way. Then there is the traditional method: vampires are fond of using EnterStageWindow to get in the victim's bedroom. They might open the window, break it, turn into a mist to seep past, or even [[OffscreenTeleportation just seemingly teleport in]]. Then it's straight for the bed, leaning over the sleeper, and chomping down on the neck.

** ''Film/TheBridesOfDracula'', Baron Meinster does this when Gina is by herself after Marianne leaves the room, coming in silently through an open window while she's look at a mirror. By the time she turns to him, he quickly mesmerizes her before going to feed on her. Later in the film, he attempts this with Marianne. But, despite having ample opportunity to feed on her right then and there, he decides to kidnap her and bring her in front of Helsing so he can turn her in front of the hunter as a final insult.

** Averted for [[OurVampiresAreDifferent Vampires]] in ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIIDaggerfall Daggerfall]]'' and ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIIIMorrowind Morrowind]]'', where the traditional "bite the neck" feeding method is replaced by a vampire-exclusive [[VampiricDraining Absorb Health]] spell. It can be Downplayed instead, if you choose to break into homes and use the spell on the residents. ''Morrowind'' also includes the Vampire's Ring as a legendary item, which allows non-vampires to use this ability.



** Similar in ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim Skyrim]]'', except that it's [[SequelDifficultyDrop much easier]]: While you still have to feed on sleeping victims, and if you're caught doing it you're in deep shit, vampires in this game have a +25% bonus to both stealth and illusion magic, including invisibility, and vampiric feeding is one of a very, very few actions that a PC can perform while invisible that won't break invisibility. Sufficiently sneaky vampires can invisibilify themselves and feed off of a sleeping NPC in a crowded room with no one the wiser.
** In ''Dawnguard'' you can avoid the entire procedure. Using Vampiric Seduction lets you bite awake victims and as a Vampire Lord you can just grab and feed in the middle of combat.

** The series' lore states that there are over 100 known vampire "bloodlines", and while many play this straight as their primary form of feeding, some avert it, such as bloodlines who consume their prey whole while others place their victims into magical comas, to be consumed at the vampire's convenience.

Later he somehow [[OffscreenTeleportation Offscreen Teleports]] from kidnapping Mara at a festival to finishing off the weakened and bed-ridden Lilian in the room.
** The second and third movies have Radu make several attempts on killing Becky in her sleep. The first attempt fails because Radu wastes too much time creeping around with the sheets and her nightgown until the phone rings...
and he drains just leaves rather than attempting to overpower her. For the second attempt he spies in her over room, enters via StockFootage...and then runs away because Mel is also in the room, asleep in a few nights.chair. Radu is nothing if ''committed'' playing this trope completely by the book.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Comicbook/BatmanVampire'': A variation occurs in "Red Rain". Tanya repeatedly visits Bruce in his sleep and bites him to infect him with vampirism, without actually drinking his blood. As a result, Batman gains vampire powers while still remaining essentially human, giving him the strength to fight Dracula.

[[folder: Fanfiction]]
* ''Fanfic/BaraNoToge'': Shizuku does this often. She waits at the window of the Lily class dorm rooms, sings to draw them out to her, bites them, and sends them back to bed before leaving. Since the girls she feeds from are under hypnosis, they have little to no memories of the event.

* ''Manga/{{Shiki}}'', a number of the vampires are created like this. One noteable example is Megumi, the first to fall prey to the shiki and rises as one herself, invades Natsuno (Even being polite enough to take her shoes off. It's Japan, a custom and all) and walks up the stairs. Natsuno hears her coming but can't move due to some kinda spell on him. Megumi seemingly stops and he thinks she left. Only for her to somehow appear ''underneath the bed of where his friend is sleeping'' before sliding out from underneath it like a snake. Subverted though in that she doesn't bite him, rather she goes after said friend, Tohru, as she's jealous of the attention Natsuno gives him.
