** In both ''Masqurade'' and ''TabletopGame/VampireTheRequiem'' older vampires can't feed on animals. Drinking animal blood just doesn't do anything for them. Even older vampires can't even feed on humans - they need other vampires to feed on. A vampire can reduce his vampiric age by going into hibernation for a longer while (25 years per "blood potency" point - 1 is minimum, 10 is maximum, 3 needs humans, 7 needs vampires). This of course may reduce vampire's power. After a certain Generation a vampire couldn't subsist on animal blood. Elders of a certain level could only feed on other vampires. Methuselahs could only feed on Elders. The big bads of the setting, the Antediluvians who founded the clans, could only feed on Methuselahs. It's unknown if Caine himself needed to feed at all, but it seems unlikely.
** Although the [[MadScientist Ordo]] {{Dracul|a}} have found ways to survive on human or animal blood even after reaching the heights of power. But then again, they're vampiric transcendentalists -- it's what they do.

** Haven't I got a good news for you, fellow kindred: if you can get a [[TabletopGame/GeistTheSinEaters Sin-Eater]] to bring you to the Underworld, you can actually subsist on the abundant blood-like drips there. Just don't cross path with the local Kerberoi, OK?

* ''VideoGame/ChampionsOfNorrath'' has a Dark Elf vampire named Sylea. She looks like she invokes the EvilISexy trope, but is actually more akin to a FriendlyNeighborhoodVampire and prefers to sate her urges by feasting on bloodvine flowers.

* Slayer in ''VideoGame/GuiltyGear'' doesn't need to hunt humans since his wife Sharon is both immortal and a willing blood donator, as evidenced by his intros that show him draining her dry prior to a match, but she always survives.

* MorganFreeman played a vampire on ''Series/TheElectricCompany'', who [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1Z0VvncNVg0 at first]] was explicitly said to be {{Dracula}} himself [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uss_QTqWNAQ (and who was shown to attack people for their blood)]] , but in one skit he was called [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c99NfY7S1aA Vincent The Vegetable Vampire]]. Response to MoralGuardians, a bout of EarlyInstallmentWeirdness, or maybe they were just talking about the letter "V" that day and wanted some AddedAlliterativeAppeal?

Added DiffLines:

* As well as drinking soy blood, in Season 5 of ''Series/YoungDracula'' Vlad reveals he has become an actual vegetarian. Talitha is likely partially responsible for his decision to go vegetarian.
** Somewhat averted in season 3, as [[spoiler: Erin]] is a vegetarian ''before'' being turned, and ends up drinking blood in ''direct'' violation of the ceasefire. This was very much a direct "screw you" to [[IHateYouVampireDad Vlad]]

Some vampires have a moral code and are aware of all the suffering their bloodlust can cause, so they go out of their way to not kill humans. They find other sources of blood such as animals (often cattle) or blood banks, or restrict their sources to {{serial killer}}s and other unsavory types. This often has drawbacks: The blood either might not be fresh or [[EvilTastesGood tastes unpalatable]] compared to (innocent) human blood. It allows the story to play up the "[[HeroicWillpower can the vampire control him/herself]]" angle.
