* ''Manga/TokyoGhoul'' centers around a group of Ghouls with this attitude taking in the protagonist after he's turned into a HalfHumanHybrid. These Ghouls attempt to live peacefully, avoiding direct conflict with humans and satisfying their HorrorHunger through scavenging victims of suicide or other violence. Their base of operations is a coffee shop that doubles as a Ghoul soup kitchen, providing meat to Ghouls unwilling or unable to hunt. Unfortunately, [[TheHunter CCG]] doesn't acknowledge or particularly care that such peaceful Ghouls exist, as evidenced by Touka's backstory. Her father was [[RedBaron nicknamed]] the "Corpse Collector" because he exclusively scavenged rather than hurt anyone, but was [[VanHelsingHateCrimes hunted down]] anyway. [[{{Deconstruction}} Afterwards]], news about his true nature caused the neighbors that had adored him for his kindness to label him a monster and gossip that he was only pretending to be kind while plotting to kill them all. [[HumansAreBastards They]] immediately turned on his two young children, and handed them over to authorities to be killed.

* In ''VideoGame/VampireTheMasqueradeBloodlines'', Velvet Velour is either one of these or very, very good at pretending to. She gives you a couple of quests to preserve the {{Masquerade}}, and makes it very clear she doesn't want innocents killed on her account. She also appears to feel guilt about the people who do have to die to uphold it (one being [[TheHunter a vampire hunter]] who wanted to kill her and the other a traitorous clanless who was trying to leak info on vampiric society to a human).

* [[spoiler: Regis]] Regis from ''TheWitcher''. ''Franchise/TheWitcher''. He's a [[spoiler: former blood addict (OurVampiresAreDifferent)]] higher vampire, and generally in his younger days he was a nice guy.hellion among vampires, becoming thoroughly addicted to the intoxicating taste of blood. But after one exceedingly drunken night of blood-imbibing debauchery that ended with him getting a little bit dismembered and staked (turns out it takes way more than that to kill a true higher vampire), he sobered up once he finished regenerating, swore off blood, and because an herbalist and healer. He eventually joins Geralt's eclectic group on their quest to save Ciri, where his various vampiric powers, such as flight, invisibility, and immunity to fire made him an invaluable ally.

* Requiem in ''ComicBook/RequiemVampireKnight'' stands out from the rest of other vampires and other denizens of Résurrection, who are [[AlwaysChaoticEvil all psychotic degenerates of varying degrees]] for being the only one who retains a conscience and being capable of genuine love. He is actually something of a freak among them for displaying qualities such as honor and chivalry. With that said, he is, at really best an AntiHero, who did a lot of reprehensible things in life, which admittedly he genuinely regrets, but its ultimately what damned him to Hell in the first place.

* Vampiro, whom Wrestling/{{CMLL}} bookers gave TheGimmick as [[ItWillNeverCatchOn a joke]] because they thought he looked funny and he had a very limited in ring repertoire. It turned out the young women in the arenas thought [[VampiresAreSexGods he looked like a rock star]] and [[BeautyEqualsGoodness did not really care about his other issues.]]

* Many of the vampires in P.N.Elrod's books are this way. There's PI Jack Fleming in the ''VampireFiles'' series (though he's a gruff, hard-boiled type) and Richard Dunn in the ''Keeper of the King'' trilogy. Another series focuses on a 'Gentleman' vampire.
