** This was semi-canonized in the AlternateUniverse series ''X-Treme X-Men'', where Wolverine, here known by his birth name of James Howlett, is bisexual and in a relationship with [[Comicbook/TheIncredibleHercules Hercules]], which some fans interpreted as a subtle nod to Claremont's original intention.

* Film/TheHunger: Miriam. This becomes particularly clear in the climatic scene when [[spoiler: several coffins in Miriam's house prove to contain ancient-looking undead some of which are dressed in women's dresses and at least one of which (besides John) is dressed in a man's suit]].

* Averted at least twice in ''Literature/TheDresdenFiles'': [[spoiler:In ''Blood Rites'' it's revealed that Lord Raith, the King of the White Court Vampires (who are essentially incubi and succubi and feed on lust rather than blood) keeps House Raith in order by sexually dominating his offspring in order to enforce psychic subservience. However, as Lord Raith is one of the few White Court vampires who isn't bisexual, he instead attempts to kill his male offspring in non-direct ways (since the White Court as a whole frowns on a lack of subtly in one's evil plots)]].

* The Vampires -- yes, ''[[EveryoneIsBi all]]'' of them -- in ''TheVampireChronicles''. Partial aversion though in that Rice's vampires are not [[CantHaveSexEver capable of regular sex]]. Also, Lestat himself was already bisexual when he was still human, as were at least some of the other vampires. Strangely, when he temporarily becomes human again, the only two people with whom he has sex are women.

* ''TrueBlood'': WordOfGod says that almost EVERY vampire out there is bisexual, gender being only a footnote to them. This is in stark contrast to the book series ''True Blood'' is based on, TheSookieStackhouseMysteries, where bisexuality is rare, outside of the occasional off-handed "I was bored" comments.

unfortunate implications need citations
This trope does have some UnfortunateImplications, however, in that it ignores the very real pattern of being attracted to one gender that is displayed by gay and straight people alike throughout their lives. Many an author also [[UnfortunateImplications lumps it together with]] ImmortalityImmorality, feeding into the notion that bisexuality/omnisexuality isn't a legitimate orientation as much as it is [[AnythingThatMoves promiscuity]]. Elves often avoid those UnfortunateImplications, particularly if they bond for life, and their bisexuality is more of a theoretical nature, the implication being they just don't care for gender that much, as the sexes look [[{{Elfeminate}}very similar anyway.]]

* Pretty much every vampire in ''Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer'' is a DepravedBisexual, as evidenced by their tendencies to "play" and tease their victims before killing and draining them in a sometimes highly sexualised manner. Vampires have no gender preferences when it comes to meals, and there are strong implications that they like "dancing" with their meals before having them (as displayed by Spike, Drusilla, Darla and vampire!Willow). A common way of luring their meals to their deaths is by seducing them first, regardless of their sex. A lot of vampires are pretty much portrayed as AnythingThatMoves. * WordOfGod is that Dorian Gray has this attitude in ''Series/PennyDreadful'' ... although it's probably the ''least'' of the ways his sexuality crosses lines. * It has been hinted heavily regarding most members of the original family of vampires on the ''Series/TheOriginals'' and "Series/VampireDiaries'' world, but especially about Rebekah. ** While clearly a bisexual, it's not clear if Isobel's started exploring relations with women after she turned, or has she always considered herself bi.
