* Doraku from ''FanFic/{{A Growing Affection}}'' is a rather AffablyEvil and polite man who outright explains to a captive Naruto, Sakura, Hinata and Lee that he falls under "enhance his power" from drinking blood (he insists that his demon clan aren't vampires but did inspire them) saying he gains whatever ability the person has. He never drinks someone to death though just tastes the blood and it works. Has the side effect of enslaving people he drinks.

* ''Fanfic/BesidesTheWillOfEvil'': [[BigBad Reiziger]] has the ability to literally suck the life out of living creatures to heal and strengthen himself, leaving his victims as grey, aged and desiccated husks. He keeps growing consistently stronger and more powerful as the story progresses, consuming more and more lives to add to his power.

** In ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim Skyrim]]'''s ''Dragonborn'' DLC, this is an ability of the Seekers, a {{Cthulhumanoid}} form of lesser Daedra in service to Hermaeus Mora, the [[OurGodsAreDifferent Daedric Prince]] of [[KeeperOfForbiddenKnowledge Knowledge]]. All of their spells drain or absorb the health, magicka, and/or fatigue of their targets. Additionally, these spells are ranged and [[HomingProjectile home-in on their targets]].

* In ''Franchise/TheElderScrolls'', this is obviously a trait the series' [[OurVampiresAreDifferent vampires]]. However, there are over 100 known "bloodlines" of vampire in Tamriel, and each has some distinguishing features and abilities. The majority use the standard BreakingAndBloodsucking method, but others are known to magically drain the health of their victims or swallow their victims whole instead.

** This is an ability of the Hunger, a form of [[OurDemonsAreDifferent lesser Daedra]] very similar in appearance to the "alien-style" {{Chupacabra}}, complete with claws, spikes, and a "sucker" mouth. Hungers are capable of draining the Fatigue of their prey. In game, this tends to take the form of a spell, but given their appearance (and the fact that the "spell" is immune to Silence), it can be implied that they are really using their sucker-like mouths.
