* ''Webcomic/CharbyTheVampirate'' has depicted vampire bites as extremely [[http://www.drunkduck.com/Charby_the_Vampirate/4776481/2 brutal]] and [[http://www.drunkduck.com/Charby_the_Vampirate/5011349/ violent]] with increasing attention to making them the most grisly and disturbing element in a comic which has a fairly high amount of gore and violence in it.

** To clarify: the vampires sink their hands into your flesh, grasp a handy vein or artery, and start absorbing your blood. It's ''possible'' they can do this without leaving a scratch on you, but [[CompleteMonster don't count on it.]] And the [[BodyHorror Pillar Men]] [[LudicrousGibs are even worse]].

* The segment "Midnight Mess" from the 1973 ''[[Film/ECComics Vault of Horror]]'' movie adaptation. What sucks more than a vampire bite? Being hung by your ankles and having a ''beer tap'' jammed into your jugular!

* In the third book of the ''[[Literature/PresidentsVampire]] series, when Nathaniel Cade, desperately needing blood to save himself, attacks an IntrepidJournalist, the description makes a vampire bite seem more like an attack by a big cat than a traditional depiction.

* Due to the {{Media Watchdog}}s, ''WesterAnimation/SpiderManTheAnimatedSeries'' couldn't have its adaptation of ComicBook/{{Morbius}} the [[OurVampiresAreDifferent Living Vampire]] (a biochemist transformed into a vampire-like being through a failed experiment -- in this case, being bitten by a vampire bat that drank some of Spider-Man's blood Morbius was irradiating to examine how it was created) drink blood by biting necks, the way the comic version did. So, to get around this, they gave him a set of five [[BodyHorror sucking, rasping]] lamprey-like mouth/orifices in each [[{{Squick}} hand]]. These usually were depicted as leaving bloody holes wherever Morbius had touched a victim to feed -- and he tended to feed by clasping both hands onto a human's ''face''. He also drained [[NeverSayDie plasma]], not blood. The writers must be [[ShoutOut fans of the above]] ''Manga/JoJosBizarreAdventure''.

The vampires who aren't quite so humane or human-friendly, don't much care for whether their prey enjoys it. They likely won't survive the experience to care, as these vampires don't bother with table manners, let alone leaving two dainty, easily covered puncture wounds. They go for the jugular, and if the rest of the neck goes with it, ''c'est la mort''.

* In ''VideoGame/{{Tsukihime}}'', assuming the vampire doesn't just eat you, the bite is actually pretty mild. Unfortunately, the vampire will also put a little of its ''own'' blood back into you, which is horribly painful and makes you feel "as though you have mud in your veins".

* In Creator/CharlesStross' ''[[Literature/TheLaundrySeries The Rhesus Chart]]'' vampires are created via a form of DemonicPossession whereby an extradimensional parasitic intelligence possesses a subject, usually a ritual magician, granting powers in exchange for victims. Feeding on blood creates a link between the vampire's parasite and the victim, and the victim dies of something resembling [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bovine_spongiform_encephalopathy mad cow disease]] within weeks courtesy of the parasite snacking on their brain. If they don't feed the parasite, the parasite consumes the vampire.
