** ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIIIMorrowind Morrowind]]'' has a side quest you can only receive if you are a vampire has a mother recruiting you to convince her vampire fanboy son not to be turned. It's impossible to talk him out of it and if you tried to fight him straight up, you'd kill him easily. The only way to complete the quest is to fight him then lose, letting him wail on you for a while until he decides that vampires are weak and overrated.

* ''FanFic/MyImmortal'' turns Harry Potter into one.

* The ''Franchise/HarryPotter'' fan story ''FanFic/MyImmortal'' turns Harry Potter himself into one.



*** When Harry finds his brother Thomas (who, incidentally, actually ''is'' a vampire) participating in the aforementioned LARP, he has a bit of a freakout and asks Thomas how he can encourage this VampireVannabe acting when he (Thomas) knows just how dangerous vampires are. Thomas points out that the whole reason the vampire-wizard war was being fought was so that the [=LARP=]ers wouldn't ever have to face real vampires and find out what the real thing is like.

Polar opposite of IHateYouVampireDad, although that can be the end result if the gig [[BeingEvilSucks isn't all it was]] [[LonelyAtTheTop cracked up to be]]. These characters are often {{Goth}}s, at least in their minds, and always LesCollaborateurs, usually WorkingForABodyUpgrade. Compare TheRenfield, TranshumanTreachery. Contrast SuperLoser, when being a vampire is no guarantee of coolness, and EmergencyTransformation, when the person might or might not want to become a vampire or other monster but basically has no alternative.

** An episode of ''Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer'' featured a group of vampire wannabes who thought they were going to be turned. [[spoiler:They were really going to be food, as a payment of sorts from the one character who was actually going to be turned (who was dying of cancer).]]

[[spoiler:They were really going to be food, as a payment of sorts from the one character who was actually going to be turned (who was dying of cancer). Said episode establishes that vampirism in Buffy [[OurVampiresAreDifferent is more like]] DemonicPossession and there is no way you can literally "become" a vampire since the real you will simply die, but the wannabes don't know this and the one who is dying, when he learns of this, doesn't care since he'll be dead either way.]]

* The premise of the George A. Romero film ''Film/{{Martin}}''. The trope is played with, however, because Martin's "vampirism" is a sexual fetish as well as a form of DomesticAbuse. Vampirism is never treated as supernatural, unlike a lot of other movies. [[spoiler: Martin's grandfather has convinced him he's a vampire, and kills him at the end.]]

Added DiffLines:

** The [[{{Ghostapo}} Nazi army]] also has collaborators in the Brazilian police force, elderly German officers who are angry about the Major's stalling at turning them into vampires, and possibly the thugs who are dumb enough to attack Alexander Anderson with guns (the latter could also have been actual, if very weak vampires though). All of them soon learn that this isn't the series to be in if you're any kind of a wannabe.

Middle-class citizens of Ankh-Morpork, he is, very technically, a real vampire (who [[IJustWantToBeNormal Just Wants To Be Normal]]), while she desperately pretends to be from {{Uberwald}}.
