Added DiffLines:

* Parodied in ''Literature/StraightOuttaFangton'' as Peter Stone doesn't care about the law or vampire society in general but ends up roped into investigating mysteries for his creator. He doesn't particularly dislike being a vampire even with its extensive downsides and makes fun of RomanticVampireBoy fiction. At the end of the first novel, he's made the bellidix (sheriff) of New Detroit.

Added DiffLines:

* ''ComicBook/{{Vampirella}}'' has gone through periods where she qualified for this. The HumanAliens space vampire has often worked as an investigator for the Catholic Church or simply on her own to hunt down various monsters hiding out among mortals. Her primary love interest has been Adam Van Helsing but recently switched to Tristan the Werewolf. She's also been the figure of unrequited love for a number of other companions.

* ''MonaTheVampire'' tries to be a vampire detective (with Charley/Zapman as a "superhero detective" and Lily/Princess Giant as a "princess detective"), but she just wears a vampire costume, plus all the strange happenings she investigates may or may not be all in her imagination...

* Henry Fitzroy of TanyaHuff's ''Literature/BloodBooks'' series (adapted to television as ''Series/BloodTies'') is ''not'' one of these, despite getting drawn in to dealing with Toronto's supernatural weirdnesses pretty frequently; he just wants to deal with the ghosts or the evil wizards or whatever and get back to his real job... which is writing romance novels.

* The ''{{Nightwalker}}'' anime actually has the epithet "Vampire Detective," and is heavily influenced by both ''Series/ForeverKnight'' and ''InterviewWithTheVampire''. It follows most of the criteria, with a few subversions: the lead is a male private detective, [[TheAtoner regrets the evil things he's done in the past]], was [[IHateYouVampireDad forcefully transformed]] by [[FullyEmbracedFiend an evil vampire]] who [[ILoveYouVampireSon had a one-sided homosexual relationship with him]], has [[KissOfTheVampire a closer-than-business relationship with his secret agent partner]] and [[LastMinuteHookup a sexual relationship with the assistant college girl]] he [[EmergencyTransformation turned into a vampire]], had flashbacks during the later half of the series that tied into current DemonicPossession cases, and [[FriendlyNeighborhoodVampire only feeds on willing donors]]. It's also a rare example of a vampire detective series [[HappilyEverAfter ending on a positive note]].
