Added DiffLines:
[[folder: Western Animation]] * In one of the ''WesternAnimation/MinaAndTheCount'' shorts, the Count is invited to dinner at Mina's house. He's very disturbed when he discovers Mina has an older sister Lucy (Mina never mentioned her because she doesn't like Lucy). The Count's favorite prey (for blood drinking) are young women. Sitting through dinner is a bit awkward for the Count. [[/folder]]

The Presidents Daughter is no longer a trope.
* ''LightNovel/VampireHunterD: Bloodlust'' - on the part of Meier Link, the vampire that [[ThePresidentsDaughter kidnapped the girl everybody is out to rescue.]] Throughout the chase we see him resisting his [[VeinOVision urges to bite her]]. [[spoiler:He doesn't fail, surprisingly.]]

Added namespaces.
* ''{{Thirsty}}'', as the protagonist turns into a vampire.

* ''{{Thirsty}}'', ''Literature/{{Thirsty}}'', as the protagonist turns into a vampire.

* Not normally an issue for Jack from ''TheVampireFiles'', as his usual appetite for blood isn't that intense. If badly wounded and a few quarts low himself, however, he starts smelling the blood under peoples' skin and has to really strain to hold back his body's desperate survival-drive to feed.

* A variation in ''{{Series/Smallville}}'' season eight. The sole purpose of [[InvincibleVillain Doomsday]] is to destroy [[{{Franchise/Superman}} Clark]], but the monster would also gladly massacre scores of humans whenever he is free. The human host, Davis Bloome,[[AlternateIdentityAmnesia has no recollection of the rampages.]] However, {{Brainiac}} also programmed into him an attraction to Clark's {{Platonic Life Partner|s}}, Chloe Sullivan, making his blackouts more and more frequent. [[DrivenToSuicide Suicide]] [[TragicMonster failed to end his tormented existence]], and Davis was forced to [[SanitySlippage kill people in his human for to suppress the bloodlust]]. Then he discovered [[ThePowerOfLove Chloe's presence]] [[MoralityChain makes him human]], but that also eventually fails and he kills her. Good thing the ResetButton was handy, but in the end there was a DownerEnding.

* The first phase of being transformed into a vampire in the NightHuntress books is a horrific uncontrollable surge of the normal blood thirst present in all vampires. Most vampires manage to get back normal control after around a week in restraints being fed on bagged blood and attended by undead. [[spoiler:Tate]] [[HeroicWillpower managed to get to the point where living people were allowed into the room after about a day]].

The blank lines at the beginning and end of folders are unnecessary. Also removing strikethrough markup, redundant pothole, and misuse of Captain Obvious (it's not "any obvious statement", it's "a character defined by a tendency to state the obvious").
There is, however, the obvious problem that they are now underfeeding ''and'' [[ColdTurkeysAreEverywhere spending a lot of time]] with someone who is [[CarnivoreConfusion directly below them on the food chain]]. [[CaptainObvious Things will only]] get worse before something goes [[GoneHorriblyWrong Horribly Wrong]]. What usually happens is they suffer a brief bout of GlamourFailure when the HorrorHunger is strongest, they'll reflexively extend their [[FangsAreEvil fangs]] and claws, start seeing in [[VeinOVision Vein-O-Vision]], or put on their GameFace. However they'll manage to retract them through [[HeroicWillpower sheer willpower]] before their new [[strike: DeliciousDistraction]] friend/love interest notices... most of the time.

*** ''Requeim'' vampires have it worse, mechanically, especially in 2nd edition: vampires in ''Masquerade'' can at least try to feed on animal or medically stored blood. ''Requiem'' vampires can only feed on animal blood at the lowest tiers of power, get effectively nothing from medically preserved blood, and can't any sustenance from corpse blood at all.

* An odd, non-predatory and character-specific example comes in ''TheSarahConnorChronicles'', where [[RobotGirl Cameron]] admits to John Connor that, deep down, her hard-wired programming is permanently directing her to kill him at all times, and is overridden only by the other programming that the future John Connor used on her. At one point, Cameron does revert and starts trying to kill John, only to override her own termination directives at the last second. Cameron also has to fight the ''opposite'' reaction when dealing with people she interprets as threats to John, and also admits that she doesn't ''know'' whether she will kill someone who she views as a threat. Her uncertainty regarding both of these eventually drives her to [[RestrainingBolt wire up an explosive device into her skull]] in case [[ICannotSelfTerminate she loses control and needs to be put down]].

* Freddy in ''Film/ReturnOfTheLivingDead'', anguished by the pain of decomposition, [[Quotes/TranshumanTreachery loses it]] and attacks his girlfriend Tina, desperate to eat her brain. [[spoiler: His Expy succeeds in [[Film/ReturnOfTheLivingDeadPartII the sequel]], in a snarky TakeThat parody of KissOfTheVampire.]]

** This trope is mechanically enforced in both ''Masquerade'' and the successor game ''VampireTheRequiem'', as a vampire low on blood will often have their body taken over by [[EnemyWithin the Beast]], who doesn't care ''where'' the blood comes from as long as it gets fed.
