* 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.

* Vampires in ''Franchise/TheElderScrolls'' become increasingly monstrous 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'' expansion of ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim'', who have the power to [[OneWingedAngel 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.

** 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).

* The Higher Vampires seen in ''Blood & Wine'' expansion of ''VideoGame/TheWitcher3WildHunt'' bear varying degrees of resemblance to this trope when they put their GameFace on. Dettlaff even has the iconic greatcoat, although his facial features are more wolf- than ratlike, while Regis gets the iconic sharp incisors-look. And then there's the Unseen Elder who doesn't even try to pass for a human, although his face isn't quite as monstrously deformed as a full-on GameFace.

** Ironically, ''actual'' vampires in the series are don't fall under this trope, being more or less humans with fangs.



* They weren't vampires, but the Kromaggs from ''Series/{{Sliders}}'' tick a lot of these boxes, especially after their redesign in the later seasons.

* [[http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Pau%27an The pau'an species,]] as seen in the ''Franchise/StarWars'' prequels, are obviously based on Orlok's looks; though in a subversion of the expected demeanor, [[DarkIsNotEvil they're actually a very decent people]], who usually do their best to take the more moral side in a conflict. A more famous ''Star Wars'' example would be [[BigBad the Emperor himself]], who plays the evil part straight.

* The Inquisitor from ''WesternAnimation/StarWarsRebels'' fits this greatly. He's bald, has bone white skin, sharp teeth, and golden Sith eyes. With tattoos for extra evilness. Makes sense since he is a pau'an, the Orlok-looking species mentioned above in Star Wars Film entry.
