* Revenant vampires in ''[[NexusWar Nexus Clash]]'' are morally unaligned and not inherently evil, and have the potential to be downright saintly and only focus their deadly powers upon evildoers. Their spellcasting counterpart the Lich has a harder time of it, being morally [[TheChainsOfCommanding bound]] to the behavior of their ravenous, combative undead minions.

** [[spoiler: Benny in season 8. After Dean gets him out of Purgatory, he makes a promise not to drink from living humans, instead living off blood bags taken from hospitals. He seems to be doing alright, even associating with humans regularly (under the guise of an ordinary human) and getting a job in a diner... at least until the midseason finale. He had been shown to have mild struggles with varying degrees of bloodlust around fresh wounds in previous episodes, despite always being able to keep it under control, although the end of "Citizen Fang" is ambiguous as to whether Benny actually snapped and killed Martin (although the circumstances are very suspicious).]]

* ''Series/TheXFiles'' episode "Bad Blood" has a vampiric clan traveling the country in an RV caravan and generally being lawful citizens (they even pay taxes, as one of them points out). The villain of the episode is actually the only one of them who has trouble keeping low profile and their representative apologizes for his behavior before they disappear into the night, leaving Mulder and Scully drugged but otherwise unharmed.

* ''TabletopGame/{{Ravenloft}}'' mostly completely averts this, but one of the sourcebooks has an adventure featuring a carefree [[UsefulNotes/{{Romani}} Vistani]] youth that has been newly-turned against his will. The [=PCs=] can with care convince him curb his new appetite and help save the rest of his family from the vampire that bit him. The epilogue text implies he will eventually give in to his blood hunger, though. There is also the case of Jander Sunstar, as described in Literature above.
* In the ''TabletopGame/D20Modern'' Sourcebook D20 Future, there are {{mutants}}. Given the various available mutations, it is perfectly reasonable to have a mutant with fangs and a physiological need for fresh blood. While such a vampire needs to drink blood, or suffer a slow death by constitution damage, even if he/she inflicts maximum damage against his/her target, it's not enough to kill a level 2 ordinary, let alone a PlayerCharacter. And the blood don't even need to be human in origin. So it's possible to play a {{Mutant}}/ VegetarianVampire /SuperSoldier fighting for the universe's greater good.

* In ''TabletopGame/{{Shadowrun}}'', sufferers of Human-Metahuman Vampiric Virus or HMHVV (TheVirus that creates TheUndead) come in three classes. Class II and III sufferers suffer from a HorrorHunger that forces them to exclusively eat the flesh, bones, blood or organs of their former species, but they don't really care ''where'' said meat comes from as long as it's fresh enough to be edible, and can therefore become this trope (if not a very tolerable case) by feeding on corpses or medical waste. Class I suffers, meanwhile, have HorrorHunger ''and'' need to drain [[LifeEnergy Essence]] from living victims to survive, and Essence loss is permanent and also deeply psychologically scarring. Red, one of the 'nicer' vampires in the setting (vampires being class I sufferers), describes himself as basically a rapist of the soul and feeds [[PayEvilUntoEvil through vigilantism and access to death row inmates]].

* Valvatorez from ''VideoGame/{{Disgaea 4|A Promise Unforgotten}}'' is one of these. He doesn't drink human blood because of a "certain incident" and instead feeds on the blood of sardines. He also seems to genuinely care for the Prinnies in his squad, hates injustice, and will never, ''ever'' go back on a promise, no matter how small it is, or how ridiculous the lengths he needs to go to in order to fulfill it are.

** This game's vampires are generally [[AlwaysChaoticEvil chaotic evil]] in the fashion of bandits and goblins, but [[spoiler:Janus Hassildor, Count of Skingrad,]] just makes sure to never go out in the sunlight - otherwise, he's a benevolent, if slightly ill-tempered ruler, and actually saves your dumbass avatar's life on a few occasions. Also, if you yourself become afflicted and decide the cure quest is too annoying to bother with, it's not necessarily your cue to join the Dark Brotherhood: simply (non-fatally!) suck the blood of a homeless person every few days, or just carefully time your excursions to avoid sunlight, and you too may enjoy [[CursedWithAwesome a whole host of nifty spells and skill-boosts]].
** Unfortunately, Oblivion's vampires are very easily distinguished by their inordinately pale skin, red eyes, and generally scary facial features, all of which actually become more and more pronounced if they go without feeding. Unfortunately, the only way to get the best bonuses from being a vampire is to deliberately go without feeding. The longer you go, the better the bonuses, and the uglier you become. So while you may become a powerful hunter of the night, you are disadvantaged by the fact that no one in their sane mind will want to have a conversation with someone who is so obviously a vampire. Typically remedied by a healthy dose of Charm spells.

** Lord Lovidicus was actually like this, at first. He was very truly and deeply in love with his mistress (who did not realize he was a vampire), and when she became pregnant he loved and cared very much for their unborn son, but despite everything, she immediately turned on him when he told her he was a vampire. Her betrayal utterly enraged him and drove him to madness, to say the least. The fact that he was trapped in his room for at least two decades and starved of blood after she locked him in didn't help any, and by the time the player character stumbled upon him, his mind was so far gone that he could only think to kill and feed. He swore he would hunt and kill her when he got free, but unfortunately she had already died by the time that actually happened.

* Slayer, from ''VideoGame/GuiltyGear'', may have been one of the founding members of the Assassins Guild, but also sought its destruction when it became corrupt. His overall demeanor is friendly and polite: when he fights, he's capable of decking other powerful characters across the cosmos [[WillfullyWeak while still holding back]] [[SpiritedCompetitor to be a good sport]]. It also helps that his wife, Sharon, is immortal, thus, he's never needed to hunt others for blood: she can regenerate all of her blood even after being completely drained.

** [[spoiler: Katrina]] is a much more interesting take. [[spoiler: She's actually the ''BigBad'' of the game, but her sense of good and evil is a bit... [[BlueAndOrangeMorality unusual]], and falls much more into WellIntentionedExtremist territory than true villainy. She ''doesn't'' want the Hero as a puppet, which she could easily do by biting him or using her magic on him, but wants him to help and love her by his own free will. Katrina turned Tanya because she genuinely thought it was the right thing to do, it's suggested she leaves the town in peace in part because she believes the residents to be her subjects and she is their benevolent ruler, she likely saved Boris's life by giving him shelter and a job at the castle as gatekeeper when she found him wandering the forest alone at night, and [[EvilIsNotAToy thinks she can sufficiently control Avoozl]] to prevent the death and destruction it would bring if allowed into the world. In fact she doesn't even ''want'' to release it to use as a weapon for destroying or conquering the world, she only wants the "endless night" it would usher in because she's terrified of the helplessness of being a vampire in the daytime: ''Anyone'' could stake her during the day and she can't do anything about it. The only two characters she is explicitly known to have bitten and turned are [[TheDragon Ad Avis]] and Tanya. The former was a SmugSnake who pretty much deserved it, and as mentioned above she genuinely thought it was the right thing to do to Tanya. Otherwise the game is unclear over whether vampires in the ''VideoGame/QuestForGlory'' universe ''must'' feed on human blood, how much, and how often.]]

However, it's generally not her style to hurt people that don't mess with her, the blood she drinks is usually served to her by a maid who gets it fully legally at a human village (and even when she sucks it directly she doesn't cause lasting harm because "she's a light eater"), she prefers talking and engaging in verbal sparring with humans anyway, and she cares really deeply for the people under her care, particularly her sister Flandre (also a vampire).

Yet at the same time, all the characters to have met her were able to have a [[NonLethalWarfare perfectly-by-the-rules]] danmaku duel with her, and while she is [[MadwomanInTheAttic usually locked in the house]], it seems to be of her own free will, implying she has no real desire to go out and destroy everybody.

By the end of the Arc, all three of them turn down the opportunity to be cured, and choose to live life as Vampires. Interestingly enough, life as a vampire is not much different that life as a human, as they never seem to drink blood, and have no aversion to sunlight. In fact, the only results of becoming a vampire for either of them appears to be a change of Hair Style and instantly learning kung fu, which makes you wonder why a cure was even developed in the first place. Louie was shown drinking blood from a transfusion pack in the Olympics arc, and also in one of those awful animated shorts.
