* In ''{{Bionicle}}'', the first symptom of The Dreaming Plague is that the victim loses the ability to dream, which in turn leads to irritability, which escalates into violence and ultimately madness.

Added DiffLines:

* In ''Manga/TokyoGhoul'', this begins to happen to Ken Kaneki after he's released from the hospital following an [[EmergencyTransformation organ transplant]]. He notices that he never ate anything while hospitalized, and suddenly his favorite foods taste disgusting. This leads to him slowly realizing that WarmBloodBagsAreEverywhere, and finally seeing his new GameFace in a mirror. To cope with this, he begins wearing a medical eyepatch to hide his [[BlackEyesOfEvil kakugan]]. Eventually, [[FriendlyNeighborhoodVampire Anteiku]] takes him in, hiring him as a part-time waiter as he befriends the Ghoul staff and begins slowly pulling away from his human life. His MuggleBestFriend, Hide, comments subtly on his changes but doesn't press him further. It turns out that [[spoiler: he figured it out early on, but waited patiently for Kaneki to tell him]]. In the anime, he confesses to having felt left behind and excluded from Kaneki's new life.

Added DiffLines:

* In ''Literature/TheTroop'', people infested with [[spoiler: mutant tapeworms]] become ravenously hungry, progressing from BigEater to ExtremeOmnivore, smell like rotting fruit, loose weight incredibly rapidly, and develop golf-ball sized cysts on their bodies.

That's why your good old [[DyingLikeAnimals benevolent]] [[TheGovernment Government]] has issued these simple guidelines to tell when a stranger, friend, relative or loved one is under the thrall of blood sucking abominations! If they have two or more of the signs below call your local [[TheWitchHunter witch hunter]] immediately!

* Sometimes there's a telepathic connection between vampire and bite victim: Each can see what the other sees. The JohnCarpenter ''Vampires'' movie has this example.

* Sex Machine undergoes this in the film ''FromDuskTillDawn'' after being bitten by a vamped Richie. As he's listening to the others talk, the sound suddenly drowns in his hearing replaced by a raspy demonic voice ordering him to kill the others. He then notices fangs in his mouth and his hands turn more monstrous which he quickly tries to hide. It's all played for laughs of course [[spoiler: till he completely turns and bites an unsuspecting Frost.]]

* Classic case in the first ''CountYorga''. A woman named Erica gets bitten at the start of the film. Prior before this, she was shown she was quite perky. But after Yorga's attack, she's despondent and listless. When her boyfriend come to check on her the following day, she completely trashes her place, can't seem to even recognize what a phone is (She drops it on the floor and just stares at it. Which makes sense, its ancient vampirism affecting her. And the monster she's becoming don't know of such things), chased down and fed on her pet kitten and acts like a savage when said boyfriend comes in. Then suddenly switches to a seductive tone before coming to her senses.

* Subverted in FredSaberhagen's version of the tale, ''Literature/TheDraculaTape''. Here, vampires aren't actually vulnerable to holy items (Dracula suspects that the holy wafer pieces used to stop Lucy Westenra from leaving her grave were mixed with a heavy dose of garlic, which ''is'' a problem for them especially when young), and so Mina isn't either; her burn is explained away as psychosomatic, a result of van Helsing all but hypnotizing her and her own conflicted feelings about starting to fall in love with the Count, and the alleged telepathic connection is just one big fib from start to finish.
