** ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIIIMorrowind'' 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.

* There is a JhonenVasquez story where a Goth boy who wants to be a vampire for real finally meets an undead guy willing to grant his wish. The results... [[LooksLikeOrlok aren't pretty]]. The vampire claims that beauty would come with time and patience, which was a downright lie, as the condition only got worse. Though it manages to play it straight ''and'' subvert it- while Eric (the victim) is one hideous vampire, the one who did the turning was plenty attractive.

* ''TabletopGame/{{Ravenloft}}'' plays this for tragedy with the Vorlog monster, a human who was being transformed into a vampire's companion[[note]]uniquely powerful vampire spawn created to be MindlinkMates with their sire, hence their original nicknames of "Brides and Grooms"[[/note]] only for the vampire to be slain before the transformation was complete. The result is a deranged {{dhampyr}}-like creature that tries to be a vampire, but can't, and desperately seeks out companions to try and [[ReplacementGoldfish fill the void]] missing from its slain creator. And because it's insane with an impossibly idealized image of its creator, its "surrogates" inevitably end up being killed when it decides they're not good enough.

Added DiffLines:

* ''VideoGame/VampireTheMasqueradeBloodlines'' has a street gang working for the Sabbat in hopes of becoming Sabbat vampires via "shovelheading" (a very unpleasant form of turning into a vampire, which few of them would survive). They are used as the muscle in the Sabbat's weapon smuggling operation and are all killed by the protagonist.

* ''LonelyWerewolfGirl'' has a werewolf wannabe in the form of BigBad Sarapen's spy, Madrigal. Since Sarapen is operating straight our of the super-villain's playbook and werewolves are born not bit in this setting, you can probably guess [[YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness how this went]].
