* Arcueid Brunestud of ''{{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 {{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.

This was in fact the standard in traditional Vampire lore and early Vampire fiction. [[Literature/TheVampyre Lord Ruthven]], Literature/VarneyTheVampire, Literature/{{Carmilla}} and Literature/{{Dracula}} could all prance around in broad daylight, and while some of these might be accustomed to sleeping during the day, daylight in itself was no danger to them. The trope that daylight is lethal to vampires came into being only with movies, specifically with 1922's ''Dracula'' adaptation ''Film/{{Nosferatu}}''.

* ''Manga/MahouSenseiNegima'' gives Evangeline A.K. [=McDowell=], who used to have an actual weakness to sunlight (that apparently didn't amount to outright destruction), but eventually overcame it as she grew in power. She even has "High Daylight Walker" as one of her ''[[IHaveManyNames many]]'' [[RedBaron titles and epithets]].
