* 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 in the end of the Companion questline.]]

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.
