* 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.

There are a lot of reasons for a vampire to get fed up with their undead condition: WhoWantsToLiveForever, WhatHaveIBecome, HorrorHunger and WarmBloodBagsAreEverywhere just to name a few. However should they choose to kill themselves and [[UndeathAlwaysEnds end their undeath]] they won't have it easy; being a vampire means they're immune to most methods of suicide except for those that involve extreme force. Sure, OurVampiresAreDifferent means they vary in toughness and weaknesses, but they're immune to things like poisons, exsanguination just sends them into a feeding frenzy and hanging or drowning do nothing (no breathing). Even stepping into traffic may not do the job, leaving them a painful heap of broken but still unliving bones. This leaves only things like decapitation, which is impractical since not everyone has a personal guillotine, and self-immolation, which is easy to chicken out of.

* Discussed in ''Series/BloodTies'', when [[FriendlyNeighborhoodVampire Henry]] is watching ''Film/{{Nosferatu}}'' with Vicki. He explains that it's bullshit that Orlok was tricked into exposing himself to the sun, as every vampire instinctively knows the time of day. By that logic, Orlok knew was he was doing.
