* The manga ''BloodAlone'' doesn't have the private investigator as a vampire; instead he adopted one. But still all the elements are there.

* 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]].

* ''Roleplay/FreedomCityPlayByPost'''s [[spoiler:Avenger, aka Jack Faretti]] is one of {{Dracula}}'s many descendants, with the distinction that he uses his [[OurVampiresAreDifferent vampiric abilities]] like mind control and invisibility to pass for a non-powered [[BadassNormal costumed adventurer]] and fight crime. While many of his fellow superheroes are aware of his true nature, his deliberately cultivated 90s [[DorkAge anti-hero]] [[ForbidenFruitTheTempationOfEdwardCullen persona]] makes him seem [[DarkerandEdgier much less threatening]] than he really is.

* ''Series/{{iZombie}}'' is, as the name indicates, a ''zombie'' detective series. After being scratched at a boat-party-turned-zombie-outbreak, Liv becomes a pale, white-haired zombie, still fully capable, but now with a hunger for brains (which help keep her higher brain functions). She quits her promising medical career and gets a job as an assistant medical examiner. She finds out that, for a short time after eating a brain, she starts to get visions, memories of the deceased person, as well as some of their mannerisms and skills. She uses the former to help a police detective track down the killer, claiming to be psychic. She's also capable of defending herself, usually by going into "full-on zombie mode" (the fast kind, not the shambling kind). Only one human knows about her condition, her boss ME, who helps her (by covering up her brain-eating) and tries to find a cure in his spare time.

* ''Series/LostGirl'': Though not a true vampire but a succubus, Bo is close enough. She did not know she was different until she accidentally killed her boyfriend at age 17, causing her to run away from home. Ten years later, she still does not know what she is (she just thinks she is some sort of freak), until she is found by the Fae authorities. Rather than choose between joining the light Fae or dark Fae, she decides to remain neutral and becomes a supernatural private detective for the Fae or humans. Her 'Sire' issues mostly relate to why she was abandoned as a baby (being raised without any warning of what she was). Though not said specifically, Bo is trying to atone for her years of feeding and running, made possible because her Fae lovers can be fed on more safely until she learns how to feed off human lovers without killing them.
