** The series' vampires tend to become increasingly more monstrous in appearance the longer they go without feeding[[note]]from ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIVOblivion Oblivion]]'' onward, as the peculiarity of the dominant strain in Cyrodiil -- [[VampireVarityPack other strains]], like the ones in ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIIIMorrowind Morrowind]]'' and ''[[TheElderScrollsIIDaggerfall Daggerfall]]'', remained monstrous even if they had just fed. ''Skyrim'' made it apply to a strain previously indicated to have another quirk.[[/note]], with their faces becoming gaunt and weathered. Vampires of Elven origin, with their already slim builds and pointy ears, are particularly prone to looking like Orlok. The trope is played most straight with the Volkihar Clan in the ''Dawnguard'' DLC of ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim Skyrim]]'', who have the power to [[SuperMode transform]] at will into a [[http://elderscrolls.wikia.com/wiki/File:VampireLord.png Vampire Lord]], with grotesque features, pale skin, pointed ears, deadly claws and a partially bald head. Unlike Orlok, Vampire Lords wear loincloths (although Lord Harkon also wears a cloak with a high collar) and have impressive physical builds, skeletal wings and claw-like feet.

* ''VideoGame/ChronoTrigger'': Though Magus is often drawn as a PrettyBoy in FanArt, and his sprite could be mistaken for one, his character portrait is basically Orlok with long, blue-white hair and red eyes.

* The vampires of ''Film/ThirtyDaysOfNight'' are a successful balance of a Nosferatu-like vampire and the prevalent "pretty" vampire, so much so they seem to have sparked a revival of the former appearance. They have black pupils, pasty-white skin, claws, and shark-like teeth.

** Scamps are the [[TheGoomba weakest]] and [[FunSize smallest]] known form of [[OurDemonsAreDifferent lesser Daedra]], and they check every box for looking like Orlok save for the hooked nose (Scamps have nostril slits instead) and the trenchcoat (Scamps don't wear clothing).

** The playable and NPC vampires in ''VideoGame/MightAndMagic VIII'' aren't quite close enough to fit (they've got the pointy ears, but their other inhuman traits, like their gray skin and red eyes, aren't on the Orlok list). The hostile vampires, on the other hand, add in baldness, longer fangs that seem to be closer to the front teeth and fingers that are longer enough that it is noticeable when they slash at you with them (they also have bat-like wings along their arms).
