* One episode of the Nelvana CareBears cartoon features the villainous green-skinned Dr. Fright, who literally draws power from his victims' fear by terrifying them with an elaborate mechanical death trap, and collaborates with the evil sorcerer No Heart in his plan to destroy all caring and create "an unfeeling, scary world". While it's not clear whether or not he's actually a vampire, he comes equipped with the requisite tuxedo, high-collared cape and widow's peak, and even greets his victims with a Lugosian "Gooood eeeeeveniiiiinnng".
* Subverted in TheRealGhostbusters episode "Transylvania Homesick Blues." At first glance, Count Vostok fits the bill perfectly, having the appearance and voice to a tee, living in the fictional Slavic country of Boldavia, and in a stock sinister castle on a mountaintop. However, the Count is revealed to be a benevolent entity who survives on artificial blood, and also the victim of a plot by his Van Helsing-esque rival to turn the stereotypical angry torch-wielding Mitteleuropean peasants in the nearby village against him. (Furthermore, he reveals that the novel "Dracula" was apparently based on the historical rivalry between the families of the count and the vampire hunter who pursues him.)

* ''BaileySchoolKids'': Mrs. Jeepers shows every sign of this, being very suave and ladylike, with a widow's peak, a Eastern European accent, an air for the dramatic when she's not being calm and menacing, and outdated clothes.

Added DiffLines:

* Sam "Grandpa" Dracula in ''Series/TheMunsters'', naturally as he's based on the Bela Lugosi depiction of Dracula albeit looking older, as he is suppose to be a grandfather.

* The 1988 Italian made for TV horror film "Dinner With A Vampire" has this variety of vampire luring four actors to his castle by pretending to be a horror film director as an excuse for his appearance, although when released from his tomb earlier in the film his appearance is more a case of LooksLikeOrlok.

Added DiffLines:

* In "Vampires of Nightworld" in David Bischoff's "Nightworld" series, it's established that vampires typically resemble Bela Lugosi right down to the pleats on their tuxedo pants, despite the setting being a fantasy world with no contact with our Earth's popular culture.
* Elizabeth Ann Scarborough's novel "The Goldcamp Vampire Or The Sanguinary Sourdough" has this variety of vampire, here named Count Vasily Vladovitch Bledinoff, trying to profit from the 1897 Klondike gold rush.
