* In ''Literature/TheDresdenFiles'' Harry dresses up like this ''specifically to'' [[BerserkButton piss the vampires off]]. It nearly gets him killed. But it was [[CrowningMomentOfFunny hilarious]]. ** Also from the Dresden Files, Black Court Vampires kind of count, given that they are literally vampires straight out of Dracula. ** The Dresden Files Black Court Vampires share all the Dracula weaknesses, but with their rotten stench and corpse-like appaerance, are more in looks-like-Orlok territory

* Dracula ''Film/TheNightFlier'': Dwight Renfield looks like a gentleman in ''HotelTransylvania''.a big black and red cloak with a high collar. It subverts the trope in that he always morphs into a decidedly unpleasant-looking batlike monster when about to kill.

Added DiffLines:
* Mostly averted in ''Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer'', with one notable exception taking advantage of the ultimate GrandfatherClause: Dracula. He can shape-shift into animals and mist, can hypnotise people into [[TheRenfield willing minions]], he lives in a BigFancyHouse, and he's more focused on romance than just finding food. This is partly down to personal taste--he's seen as an eccentric celebrity by other vamps--and partly due to having unique and mysterious powers, which Spike attributes to "some kind of gypsy thing".

*** In fact, the Magpyr portrait gallery in ''Discworld/CarpeJugulum'' is a bit of a history of vampirism. Vlad is a parody of modern "cool" vampires, the Old Count (Vlad's great-uncle) is a ClassicalMovieVampire, ''his'' father LooksLikeOrlok, there's a cross between Literature/{{Carmilla}} and [[BloodBath Elizabeth Bathory]], and a more distant ancestor is a beaked monster. Heck, ''Discworld/CarpeJugulum'' is a {{Reconstruction}} of the Genre, showing why a classical movie vampire (who doesn't pretend like he's not a monster, who respects tradition, and who generally comes across as a sporting guy and a WorthyOpponent) for will last longer than the "cool" new vampyres. Especially since he's got the decency to spend a bit of time pretending to be dead after being staked. Everyone calls him The Old Count, but his actual ''name'' is "Bela". ** There's also the character of Otto von Chriek, who is described as a "music-hall vampire" (which is the closest they have to stating outright that he is a ClassicalMovieVampire.) However, it is mentioned several times that he does this to make people laugh, because if people are laughing at him, then they don't see him as a threat:

* "[[Recap/SupernaturalS04E05MonsterMovie Monster Movie]]", an episode of ''Series/{{Supernatural}}'' where a crazy shapeshifter assumes the form of the Classical Movie Vampire (and [[MonsterMash other classic monsters]] later on). In a series where OurVampiresAreDifferent, the fact that ''all'' the witnesses explicitly described the culprit as a ClassicalMovieVampire is what convinced Dean and Sam that they were not actually dealing with a "real" one.

* Dracul class vampires in ''TabletopGame/BleakWorld'' are this. They can turn into bats and get bonuses to seducing young women in [[OfCorsetsSexy tight fitting evening wear]]. They are also better at magic than the other classes.
