* Possibly as a nod to this trope (it nods to pretty much all other vampire tropes), Genevieve Deiudonné in ''AnnoDracula'' gets her PI license in the 70s. Granted, this is after centuries in which she's been a mercenary, a physician, a coroner, a spy, and damn near everything else, so she was bound to get there eventually.

A subtrope of FriendlyNeighborhoodVampires. Needless to say, when vampiric, falls firmly under OurVampiresAreDifferent. A specific type of DefectiveDetective. Usually overlaps with OccultDetective, but doesn't sufficiently often that it makes the numbered list above.

* Although Andrew Bennett from Creator/DCComics' ''ComicBook/IVampire'' ''ComicBook/HouseOfMystery'' series never called himself a Vampire Detective, his quest to eradicate the Blood Red Moon cabal often required investigation and pitted him against human criminals. IHateYouVampireDad is inverted, as he's a sire hunting down his evil offspring.

* John Taylor of the ''Literature/{{Nightside}}'' series probably qualifies, if having [[spoiler: Lilith]] for a Mom can substitute for having a vampiric sire. #2 and #5 are covered too, if flash''forwards'' to a future where you've caused TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt suffice as a guilt-generator. His eventual LoveInterest Shotgun Suzie, has issues of her own that prevent them from touching for most of the series. And whether or not John is [[spoiler: immortal]] has yet to be determined: as was Lampshaded at the Griffins' party, time will have to tell about ''that'' qualifier.

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