** Relatedly, there's a pair of WhiteWolf vampire short stories having to do with artists. One kills himself before he can be made into a vampire, in order to avoid CreativeSterility and/or having to give up the sun. One who is already a vampire then becomes obsessed with sunlight and starts staying up late every dawn to try to watch it rise, only barely managing to drag herself away with growing burns each time. The implication is that eventually it will become this trope.

* The demon prince Azhrarn does this at the end of Creator/TanithLee 's first Flat Earth book, ''Night's Master''. His seductions of earth women have finally caught up with him, when a girl's fiancé, transformed by him into a horrific monster, lets loose a torrent of hate upon the world. The Hate continues even after the poor boy is dead and is about to consume the earth. In a [[WhatHaveIDone rare moment of decency]], Azhrarn realizes he loves the earth and humanity, not just as a plaything. He goes to where the Hate has made a terrible wound in the sky, sits out in the sun and [[DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything lets himself be crucified]] on its rays and burnt to ash. And the ashes of his love banish Hate, bringing a time of innocence like {{Arcadia}} to the earth.

* Jander Sunstar plans to greet the sunrise at the end of ''[[TabletopGames/DungeonsAndDragons Vampire of the Mists]]''. Interestingly, the story does not [[AmbiguousEnding reveal what happens when he does]]. Later game materials produced by authors other than Christie Golden said that he survived by being whisked away by the Mists. That same source claimed that he continued to want to fight Strahd, however, which he had quite expressly given up on at the end of the novel. Within the novel itself, however, Jander's fate is unrevealed.
