* This becomes an optional quest in ''Franchise/TheElderScrolls'' if the hero becomes a vampire. In ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIIDaggerfall Daggerfall]]'', it is offered by a vampire hunter who give you a choice instead of killing you (you can also drink the potion a witch coven asks you to transport). In ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIIIMorrowind Morrowind]]'', it is given by reading a book about a cured vampire and doing a favor for Molag Bal, the "patron" daedra of vampires. In ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIVOblivion Oblivion]]'', it involves collecting a long list of ingredients to make a potion. In ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim Skyrim]]'', it involves trapping a human soul in a Black Soul Gem and giving it to a sorcerer, who sacrifices the soul to Oblivion as payment for your vampirism to be lifted. Alternatively, you can ask [[spoiler:Aela the Huntress]] to voluntarily turn you into a werewolf, which will cure you of being a vampire in the process. It's also possible to invert the trope, if you are a werewolf, you can ask [[spoiler:Harkon or Serana]] to voluntarily turn you into a vampire instead of [[spoiler:using the Glenmoril Witch's head and killing your wolf spirit at the final Companion questline.]]

*** In ''Daggerfall'', this requires either transferring the disease to a [[HereditaryCurse latent werewolf]] or taking part in a HumanSacrifice.
*** In ''Morrowind'''s ''Bloodmoon'' expansion, this requires convening with witches and again making a human sacrifice.
*** In ''Skyrim'', it requires taking the head of a specific group of [[HarpingOnAboutHarpies Hagravens]] to a special shrine and then slaying your inner beast. As mentioned above, you can also overwrite the lycanthropy with the powers of a Vampire Lord.

* Nick from ''Film/TheForsaken''. It is heavily implied in the movie that ''all'' [[WhoYouGonnaCall vampire hunters]] have always mostly consisted of people who have been bitten. The rules of vampirism state that [[NoOntologicalInertia all potential vampires are freed from their curse if the "head vampire" who originated that strain is killed]] (an idea mocked in the ''VampireTheMasqueradeBloodlines'' video game).

Added DiffLines:

* ''ComicBook/BatmanVampire'': In ''Red Rain'', Tanya visits Batman in his sleep and bites him to infect him with vampirism without actually drinking from his veins, granting him vampire powers while still being essentially human, in order to grant him the strength to fight Dracula. During the final showdown, however, Dracula manages to bite Batman and turn him into a full vampire before Bats finishes him off. Throughout the next installment, ''Bloodstorm'', Batman uses his new powers to fight crime, as well as the remnants of Dracula's brood, and survives on a specially made blood substitute before it ceases to satisfy his thirst. He finds solace with Selina Kyle, who uses ThePowerOfLove to help him keep his bloodlust under control, but it comes to a tragic end when she dies intercepting a crossbow bolt fired at Batman by the Joker, at which point Batman, enraged and grief-stricken, succumbs to his thirst and drained the Joker of his blood; immediately horrified at what he has done, Batman arranges for Commissioner Gordon and Alfred to stake him to stop him from killing anyone else. However, Gordon and Alfred neglect to [[OffWithHisHead behead him]] after the staking, so Batman is left [[AndIMustScream paralyzed in a death-like state, fully conscious and aware of his body's decay and his rampant bloodlust]]. In ''Crimson Mist'', in the midst of a massive crime wave, Alfred becomes desperate enough to remove the stake in an effort to give Gotham a savior once more, but Batman has gone completely insane from the experience, and is now a slave to his thirst.

The oldest vampire movie/character plot in the book: the protagonist is infected with TheVirus and undergoes the ViralTransformation into a vampire or some other monstrous entity like a [[WolfMan werewolf]] or zombie. They have only a short time until the {{curse}} of the FaceMonsterTurn asserts itself and the overwhelming thirst to [[ImAHumanitarian eat, drink and transform their fellow man]] is all they know.

** Moreover, his specific background makes this [[BlackComedy grimly hilarious]]: until the mists took him, as a Gold Elf back on [[TabletopGame/ForgottenRealms Faerun]], he was very close to the cure for undeath for all of those centuries. He didn't even know about its existence mainly because the elves treat [[TooMuchForManToHandle High Magic]] as the greatest secret of Multiverse even when they ''know'' it's an OpenSecret to the present company, and he was just a young adventurer hanging out with humans at the time.

* Lucy Westenra and Mina Harker in ''{{Literature/Dracula}}''. For the former, it wasn't known what was weakening her till Van Helsing was called in. She would've probably been cured were it not for a few [[ContrivedCoincidence too]] [[DiabolusExMachina many]] bad circumstances. Mina is a bit more fortunate, since Dracula has to flee before he can fully transform her. She feels his presence within her spying on the hunters. And, when confronted by the brides near the end of the story, senses the vamprisim welling up in her.

[[{{Pun}} These nights]], this trope has extended to just about any [[TheVirus infectious]] [[OurMonstersAreDifferent monster]], a few other BodyHorror [[EmergencyTransformation transformations]], and even outright {{curse}}s. It may also be recognized as a common on-the-job hazard for [[TheHunter those who oppose such creatures]]. Expect the hero to gain an advantage from [[OneHeroHoldTheWeaksauce lacking the traditional weaknesses of their breed]] and discovering they can tap into HeroicWillpower to get a powerup to beat their sire. This last bit can get a bit silly, as the hero-now-monster is usually [[HorrorHunger starving]] by this point from fasting on blood.
