* ''Series/HemlockGrove'': After spending several seasons dealing with the hunger, Roman discovers that most Upir refrain from hunting and instead seek occupations like working in blood banks or morgues so they don't attract too much attention. Or if they do hunt, then criminals are generally fair game.

Added DiffLines:

* The Wraith of ''Series/StargateAtlantis'' can best be described as Soul Vampires. Through the course of the series we meet a few who want to find a means other than feeding on humans to survive. An early episode has an old man secretly raising a young Wraith as his "daughter" who claims to have cured her hunger with local herbs. Turns she was lying and sneaking off to feed whenever the hunger grew to great, but she didn't *want* to. This meeting plus the knowledge of the Araetis Bug origins of the Wraith worked together to create the Atlantis Expedition's efforts to create a retrovirus to humanify the Wraith. Late seasons had long arcs involving the Wraith named "Tod" who wanted to help the Expedition perfect said virus to free his alliance from their need to feed - as well as to weaponize for use against other Wraith in their civil war.

* Creator/BruceCoville's book ''Monster of the Year'' features The Count, who drinks only "the elixir of life": V8 juice. Through a straw. He says it feels more natural if he can suck it.

* The vampires of ''Literature/ReformedVampireSupportGroup'' subsist on gerbils, although they have to take supplements to counter both the lack of certain nutrients that are only found in human blood and the impurities that animal blood contains. It's also incredibly messy (the protagonist prefers to feed in the bathroom, to make cleanup easier) and results in them lacking the strength a vampire who feeds on human blood has - in addition to causing nausea and a general malaise. But they consider it better than the alternative since, in-universe, vampirism spreads like an infection - causing them to turn any humans they bite.

* In ''TabletopGame/{{Shadowrun}}'' it's a bit difficult for actual vampires to go "vegetarian" since they need to inflict permanent Essence loss on a human, but some "civilized" ghoul communities make arrangements for "ethical" sources of human flesh from hospitals, morgues, back-alley cyberdocs, Shadowrunners...

* In ''Literature/{{Discworld}}'', there are reformed vampires called "black ribboners" who fill their urge for blood [[AddictionDisplacement by becoming obsessed with something else]], e.g., Otto Chriek with taking pictures and Maladict with drinking coffee. They still need to drink blood to survive, but they don't do it very often and use animal blood.
** The Countess Notfaroutoe, while [[VampireVannabe quite keen on her husband taking up most aspects of the vampire lifestyle]], has told him that he can have rare steak, and like it.

* Arcueid from ''VisualNovel/{{Tsukihime}}'' doesn't actually needs blood since she's a "True Ancestor", but she does craves it badly, and yet she can mostly fight off the urge to bite. [[spoiler:That crave is caused by Roa by offering a rose with some of his blood on it. The results are devastating to say the least.]]
