A consequence of the OurVampiresAreDifferent trope. This is a form of TakeThat where one author takes a shot at another author for the choices they made in depicting vampires.

* ''Literature/TheIntrepidSaga: A Path in the Darkness'' has Tanis and Joe, stuck on a slower-than-light colony ship suffering from major sabotage in an uninhabitable star system in a fundamentally Mohs/SpeculativeScience setting, jokingly comment that it sure would be nice if they had [[Franchise/StarTrek tractor beams, warp drive, or transporters]].

** The de Magpyr family portraits hung on the stairs are a history of the portrayal of vampires in fiction and film: Polidori's Byronic "Vampyre", Murnau's ''Film/{{Nosferatu}}'', Chrstopher Lee''s Hammer Horror Dracula, and Gary Oldman's late-century version. The idea is clear: the de Magpyrs reinvent themselves with each generation and it has SuspiciousSimilarity to the evolution of vampires on our world.

{{Dracula}} is probably the most common vampire to be on the receiving end, since he is the source of almost every modern vampire trope, and hence embodies most of them in [[AdaptationOverdosed some]] [[InkStainAdaptation version]] [[AdaptationDisplacement or]] [[LostInImitation another]]. On the modern end, ''Literature/{{Twilight}}'' is another very common easy potshot for vampire parodies, partly for the opposite reason that it averts so many traditional tropes. The other two frequent targets are ''Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer'' and Literature/TheVampireChronicles, mainly because those are the only two additional works for which [[SmallReferencePools the writers can be sure the audience will know what's being mocked.]]

* The Pillar Men from ''Manga/JoJosBizarreAdventure'' actually created vampires to serve as their food source, so naturally they look down upon them, despite being pseudo-vampires themselves.
