* Played with in ''WesternAnimation/MonaTheVampire''. The titular Mona only ''pretends'' to be a vampire and the actual supernatural threat of the episode is purely in the imaginations of her and her friends (there's always a completely rational explanation for what the "threat" actually was), but within the realms of her imagination she's a vampire who is friendly and heroic.

* Forum Community/MMORPG ''VideoGame/GaiaOnline'' has no less than three NPC Friendly Neighborhood Vampires. Ian and Moira, both of whom were shopkeepers prior to the events of the Vampire Arc (Though Moira was turned on Halloween [[EmergencyTransformation to save her life]]) and Louie, who was introduced by the plot. 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.

** Some of the regulars at Biers, a pub for the undead, are good people. When a [[{{Cloudcuckoolander}} nice old woman]] who also comes there is beaten and robbed, the items are discretely returned and the thugs are later found drained in an alleyway.

** Her Master, Alucard, ''functions'' as a Friendly Neighborhood Vampire, but only because Integra's [[KidWithTheLeash got him on a leash]]. He certainly has more moral standards and looks a lot better than Millennium's vampires, anyway. Just don't get on his bad side or insult Integra. There's a reason Alucard has hundreds of thousands of dead souls at his disposal.

* Vampires in ''Literature/HereticalEdge'' run the gauntlet, morally. There's absolute monsters, sure, but there's also Asenath, who is probably the most morally upright character thus far and spends her immortality helping anyone who needs it.

* Vampireza and Reina Vampira, resident {{tecnic|o}}as of Monterrey promotions such as LLF. Vampireza did go for the blood of {{tag team}} partner Shira when they were forced into a [[HumiliatingWager hair vs mask]] match though.[[/folder]]

* "Kevin" the changeling from ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'', who [[https://derpiboo.ru/916289 showed up at Cranky and Matilda's wedding]] and has since been released as a [[https://derpiboo.ru/1021751 Friend-Class card]] in the official card game. While changelings are closer to succubi than traditional vampires, they're still vampirish enough to count.

* ''ComicBook/{{Vampirella}}'' is a tricky example, not because she can get very unfriendly in a bloodthirst rage, but because [[OurVampiresAreDifferent it's debatable whether she is a vampire at all]]. (And noone tried an VanHelsingHateCrime on her yet - except van Helsing.)

* The Count from ''Series/SesameStreet'' is a very fine example of a friendly neighborhood vampire. Perhaps too friendly.[[note]]Two! Two friendly! Ah ha ha ha ha! *thunderclap*[[/note]] However, the Count can be pushed a little too far; there was a sketch where he was being served by Grover the waiter, and lost his temper due to Grover's screw-ups. Even so, he didn't ''hurt'' Grover, but just hypnotized him to do his job with ridiculous speed and efficiency. Also, while staying over at Bert and Ernie's, he kept Ernie up all night with his counting sheep, resulting in a humorously traumatized Ernie. The Count's actual "vampirism" is more or less an InformedAbility. He has the stereotypical accent and title, those sure ''look'' like fangs, and a strange compulsion to count things is a vampiric trait in some legends, but it's not like ''Series/SesameStreet actually ever ''shows'' him stalking the night to Suck the Felt of the Living.

** It's also perfectly possible for vampires in both games (well, only the younger vampires in ''Requiem'' for the most part) to get their required sustenance by feeding on animals. While it's more humane, individuals animals don't carry much, it doesn't taste quite as good, and you'll be looked at funny because the two dominant vampire religious bodies say that you're a divine predator meant to cull the human herd.

* ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer}}'' has Geneviève Dieudonné, who is quite likely the ''only'' example of this trope in the entire setting (or at least the only one who's managed to survive more than a few years without being killed by fanatical vampire hunters or disgusted fellow vampires, or simply succumbing to their baser, monstrous instincts); she's even considered a hero of the Empire for her role in [[DidYouJustPunchOutCthulhu killing Constant Drachenfels, the Great Enchanter]], not once but ''twice''. Unfortunately, [[CrapsackWorld since this is Warhammer we're talking about]], even this is not a good thing; indeed, one of the main reasons they don't try that hard to kill her is that she's the best PR coup that vampires have had for centuries, if not millenia, and, well... she ''is'' the only really friendly one...

* Subverted in the ''CollegeHumor'' sketch, "The Six Monsters You'll Have for Roommates." The "vampire" isn't actually a vampire, just a {{Goth}}y college kid who happens to share some traits with them: he stays out all night, has an aversion to sunlight (because he is NotAMorningPerson, probably because he's out partying all night), is never seen eating (or at least doesn't eat garlic bread), and has ''no'' trouble [[TheCasanova hooking up with several different girls]].
