* A possible way for [[PlayerCharacter Lucy]] to deal with the titular vampire in ''VideoGame/SixteenWaysToKillAVampireAtMcdonalds''. Maggie, one of the her teammates, is said to use one alongside a [[MacheteMayhem machete]] as her primary means of killing vampires.

* It's mentioned in ''Manga/{{Karin}}'' that this will kill a vampire, though it doesn't really qualify as a "weakness" per say since "A stake through the heart would kill anybody!"

* In ''VideoGame/Runescape'', one quest involves using a stake to slay a weakened vampire. Somewhat notable in that the player needs to use a stake hammer to drive it in.

Added DiffLines:

* As it takes place in the same city as Charby ''Webcomic/HereThereBeMonsters'' vampires can presumably be killed by a stake through the heart but have thus far only been seen killed via headshots and decapitation.

* In ''Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer''/''ComicBook/{{Supergirl}}'' crossover ''Fanfic/TheVampireOfSteel'', Supergirl, Buffy and the Gang face a Kryptonian vampire. Regular wooden stakes can't pierce his skin, not even being magically-enhanced. Kara gets stakes carved of Kandorian trees since anything from Krypton becomes indestructible on Earth.

The favorite weapon of the VampireHunter, and frequently the only thing capable of [[KilledOffForReal finishing them off for good]]. Because weirdly enough, only wood can kill a vampire, whereas sword impalement (short of [[RemovingTheHeadOrDestroyingTheBrain beheading]]) cannot. This may be because the wooden stake was a once living plant, much like the vampire was a once living human, unlike the sword which was never alive. Yes, this occasionally means that someone can be killed via pencil to the heart, or that a bow and arrow can be more effective [[ImmuneToBullets than a gun]].

Added DiffLines:

* ''Film/{{Lifeforce}}'': Played with. The space vampires are vulnerable to iron stakes, and they have to be stabbed a few inches below the heart to actually kill them.
* ''Film/FrightNight2NewBlood'': One of the vampire weaknesses, but it's not as easy as it looks. When Peter tries to kill Gerri with a stake, he misses her heart by several inches.
-->'''Gerri:''' ''[after LickingTheBlade]'' ...missed!

* The traditional vampires in ''Webcomic/CharbyTheVampirate'' can be killed this way which is why Victor carries a bow and a quiver of arrows. "Pureblood" vampires appear to have an additional weakness to silver and both can be taken out by decapitation or a well placed messy shot to the head.

* Blog/MrWelch has been known to modernize this trope. Regrettably, his GMs tend to be less than open to this kind of thinking...
