* The RPG ''All Of Their Strengths'' has this as one of the available race options (understandably, because the name itself is a ShoutOut to ''Blade'').

** Though to be fair, the Thirst isn't a "weakness." Blade himself just refuses to feed on people for the most part because it makes him feel less human. A normal vampire doesn't have the moral compass.

In vampire folklore they were said to be normal humans, but would eventually become vampires after death, with the process repeating itself for generations. In modern fiction they may have [[OneHeroHoldTheWeaksauce all of a vampire's powers and none of their weaknesses]], or watered-down versions of both: half as strong but only uncomfortable in sunlight. A stake to the heart is still lethal though although, wouldn't a stake to the heart kill you anyway? In some instances (video games especially) [[HolyBurnsEvil holy]] objects or [[ElementalRockPaperScissors magic]] will remain a problem for them even if they are good. Dhampyrs are often {{vampire hunter}}s and [[HunterOfHisOwnKind hunters of their own kind]]. Just as some cultures once believed that murderers and suicides would rise as vampires, a child born approximately nine months after the death of the father might have been accused of this.

It is more common for the father [[HumanMomNonhumanDad to be the vampire]] in this mating, since according to folklore vampire men had far higher sex drives than their female counterparts and were often rapist who targeted human women because they were easy prey. In fiction writing that is sometimes the case, and other times female vampires are infertile, depending on [[OurVampiresAreDifferent their degree of deadness]]. Sometimes avoided altogether by just having a vampire (male or female) bite and turn a pregnant woman (see ''ComicBook/{{Blade}}'').

* ''Series/{{Angel}}'': Angel's son Connor appears to be completely human as an infant, and later develops the superhuman strength, speed and senses of a dhampyr. His body is not truly undead, though, so his healing powers are inferior. He was born to two vampires (a predestined event that, until that point, [[ImmortalProcreationClause had been thought impossible]]), which makes him sort of an odd example since his parentage is fully vampire rather than half, and yet not a vampire at all. They get to play around with the implications of a vampire with a human son. Connor isn't averse to many uniquely vampiric weaknesses, and so can go places and do things that Angel can't. In one of his first episodes back from Quor-toth, Angel loses Connor when he can't follow him into the sunlight.

* Dhampyrs are mentioned in ''Literature/MyVampireOlderSisterAndZombieLittleSister''. They can choose to live as either a vampire or a human. If they choose the former, they can use their powers to hunt vampires, but if they are consumed by their power, they will become a full vampire. They can be born from the union of a vampire and human, or created artificially by cursing humans.

It is more common for the father [[HumanMomNonhumanDad to be the vampire]] in this mating, since undead vampires in folklore had a limited lifespan of 40 days, which isn't nearly enough time for a female to carry a pregnancy to full term. That, and sometimes female vampires are infertile, depending on [[OurVampiresAreDifferent their degree of deadness]]. Sometimes avoided altogether by just having a vampire (male or female) bite and turn a pregnant woman (see ''ComicBook/{{Blade}}'').
