* 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.

** 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).
