* 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.

** In VideoGame/TheSims4 Vampires can eventually get the Sun Resistance ability which reduces the draining effect of the sun, this can eventually be upgraded to "Perfect Sun Resistance" which eliminates the effect entirely.

* In ''Manga/{{Hellsing}}'', Alucard merely dislikes sunlight. He's powerful like that. It's implied that vampires in ''Hellsing'' are vulnerable and ''do'' burn in sunlight...Alucard's sheer power or HealingFactor has just reached such a ridiculous degree, he simply experiences a minor ''tingling sensation''.
** Oddly, Alucard's young servant Seras is shown out at day once too, even though she needs to be confined to a coffin to travel overseas.

* In ''Film/{{Blade}}'', Daywalkers ([[{{Dhampyr}} Half-Vampires]]) are not affected by direct sunlight, but regular vampires are. They can only walk around during the day using sublocking skin cream or completely covering their bodies. The original vampire, Drake, can also walk around during the day with no problem, amongst his other unique powers.
** Also, the Reapers in the second film are the unintentional side effect of the attempt by vampires of creating more Daywalkers. However, the mutated strain is still vulnerable to sunlight (actually, that's their only vulnerability; silver and garlic do nothing).

Added DiffLines:

* ''ComicBook/{{Vampirella}}'': As a direct descendant of {{Lilith}}, Vampirella herself will often walk around in the daylight whereas most other vampires burn up on direct exposure to sunlight. {{Dracula}}, the progenitor of all evil vampires, has exhibited this trait as well.

* In ''Series/{{Moonlight}}'' vamps don't particularly like being out in the sun and they're very sensitive to it, but it doesn't make them burn up.

* Arcueid Brunestud of ''VisualNovel/{{Tsukihime}}'' has no trouble with daylight at all, although day''time'' impedes her as she's only [[ImmortalLifeIsCheap invincible]] under the light of the moon. She's just as deadly any hour of the day, however.[[note]]All True Ancestor type vampires probably shared this trait, but she's the LastOfHerKind[[/note]]
** This is rather common in the Franchise/{{Nasuverse}} in general, as the term 'vampire' designates anything[[note]]For example, another vampire in ''Tsukihime'' would be [[spoiler:Akiha]], for medical reasons[[/note]] that, for one reason or another, consumes the blood of humans and/or their own species, a list that includes a number of traditional vampires, at least three {{Eldritch Abomination}}s (two of which are actually aliens, with one being the progenitor of True Ancestor and the Dead Apostle-type vampires), and even ''a forest'' (this one is unusual, and actually the result of an accident in disposing the corpse of a Dead Apostle Ancestor), with many of them having no weakness to sunlight. As a rule of thumb, if it derives from Brunestud of the Crimson Moon (the [[UltimateLifeForm Ultimate One of the Moon]], and one of the above-mentioned Eldritch Abominations), either by using it as a template (True Ancestors and some Dead Apostle) or by being altered by it or another derived vampire (most Dead Apostles), it's weakened by sunlight, with effects ranging from being sleepy and somewhat weaker to being quickly killed depending on power and age, with the most recent Dead Apostles (the closest thing to a traditional vampire) and the incomplete ones being the most vulnerable.

Likewise, in ''VisualNovel/{{Tsukihime}}'' [[spoiler:Akiha]] has EnergyAbsorption powers due to being quickly killed depending on power descended from a demon, and age, with the most recent would be classified as a vampire if they ever lost control of their demonic instincts.
** While all
Dead Apostles (the closest thing to a traditional vampire) majority vampire species) are harmed by sunlight, the extent of this varies depending on the individual. The oldest and strongest can walk around in sunlight just fine, but prefer to avoid it because it weakens their powers and forces them to feed more often.
** Arcueid Brunestud of ''VisualNovel/{{Tsukihime}}'' is unaffected by sunlight, but becomes stronger in ''moonlight'' (particularly
the incomplete ones full moon), due to being a {{Nature Spirit}} modeled after the most vulnerable.[[UltimateLifeform Ultimate One]] of the Moon. Presumably the other [[MonsterProgenitor True Ancestors]] shared these traits, but she's the LastOfHerKind.

* Selene becomes one at the end of ''[[Film/{{Underworld}} Underworld Evolution]]'' after ingesting [[spoiler:the blood of the first immortal Alexander Corvinus]]. It's implied that Marcus is probably immune to UV rays as well after becoming a vampire/Lycan hybrid, but he still hides during the day, likely a defense mechanism borne of centuries of being a vampire.
