* ''Webcomic/{{Monstra}}'' follow the Dracula rules, the vampires are daywalkers but their powers are weakened during the day. When one character asked why fiction would omit that fact, it's stated that it's just old knowledge that got lost in the lore and generally RuleOfDrama to prevent paranoia in humans. If anything, it's not so much the sun that causes the demise but the unstable power within newborn vampires ''combusting them'' because of believing the sun can kill them. After a days rest from intial turning, their bodies can regulate the power and prevent this problem.

** Sierra as well. That said, she doesn't find sunlight pleasant and [[NotAMorningPerson would rather sleep in instead]].

* Vampires in ''Literature/ADiscoveryOfWitches'' move about freely in the day

to:

* Vampires in ''Literature/ADiscoveryOfWitches'' move about freely in the dayday.
* In ''Literature/TheMortalInstruments'', vampires also burn in daylight. They are even safe just behind walls in front of sunlight, clothes do not bring anything. However, Simon Lewis becomes a vampire who can walk around in daylight because [[BigBad Valentin Morgenstern]] has made an experiment with the blood of angels.
** Later it turns out that there were also vampires before Simon, who could walk around in the sunlight. How these emerged, however, is unknown.


Added DiffLines:

** Later in the comics are a new breed of vampires created, because the magic disappears from the world, and later returns. The new vampires are much more powerful than the old breed, and one of their abilities is to walk around in the sunlight.

** Don Diego lives in Spain, which is noted for it's sunny climate so it's logical to assume Spanish vampires adapted to this. Rory McDuckula on the other hand lives in Scotland - not exactly noted for being a very sunny place!

* The Vampires of ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim Skyrim]]'' can survive in sunlight with only minimal discomfort, although prolonged exposure to direct sunlight causes their skin to burn and their natural powers become heavily debilitated. As a result, Vampires prefer travelling at night as it's the best time to overpower their opponents. Vampire Lords are more resistant to the sun, but still do better at night. In-game, this translates to increased vulnerability to certain kinds of damage and reduced effectiveness of automatic healing.
* ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIVOblivion Oblivion]]'' is another minor example: vampires could day-walk if they were well-fed but burned otherwise.
** One (Clan-specific) vampire-only quest in ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIIIMorrowind'' has you be this -- that is to say, you were to kill someone walking around in a city in broad daylight as a show of force, despite the fact that the Vvardenfell strain of vampires [[ManOnFire burn when exposed to sunlight]].
* ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsOnline'' has vampires who are said to be much stronger at night, instead of being weakened during the day.
