** Likewise Mina shows vampiric traits after Dracula bites her and forces her to drink his blood. A wafer Helsing tries to bless her with burns her skin and leaves an imprint on her, her canines start getting longer and sharper and the heroes find she has a telepathic connection with Dracula and use it to track him down though over time the hypnosis to activate the connection starts to fail. What's more, as the trip to the castle goes on, Mina loses her appetite for regular food and falls into a sleep she can't be woken from. Yet creepily enough when night falls, she's much more active and exuberant until daylight. So much so that Helsing can't go to sleep at one point during a camp stop due to her just blankly ''staring'' at him all night, fearful that she could pounce on him at any moment.

''Webcomic/DraculaRulerOfTheNight'': Along with the usual sharpened canines, Lucy cites her senses becoming more sharper then normal. Like she can see speck of dust from across the room and hear several rooms beyond her bedroom wall. The protagonists also notice Lucy's ears are likewise becoming more oddly misshappen the paler she gets after each bite. Indeed, after the third bite, it turns completely [[PointyEars pointed]] for a moment when she tries to "kiss" Arthur before Helsing stops her.

* Akin to the aforementioned effects in ''TrueBlood'', in ''Literature/TheSookieStackhouseMysteries', Sookie has been on the receiving end of enough of Eric's blood that he's wary of giving her much more, or else she'll be a vampire herself. This effectively cranks their relationship up several notches, since they thrive on each others' emotions.

* In ''TrueBlood'', Bill can, because he has had so much of Sookie's blood, tell when she's in trouble. Eric can as well.

* Classic case in the first ''Film/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.

* In the original ''Literature/{{Dracula}}'', Mina shows vampiric traits. For example, her canines start getting longer and sharper, and she's burned by a consecrated communion wafer.

** Likewise with Lucy as Dracula takes more of her blood. In her final moments as a human the protagonists realize her bite marks are completely gone and her canines are noticeable sharper. When she sees Arthur, her demeanor turns completely seductive as she tries to "kiss" him before Helsing separates the two.

* 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.

* 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.]]
