* Remilia Scarlet of ''VideoGame/{{Touhou}}'' actually likes cross imagery (she uses them in her spellcards), and is absolutely baffled as to why people think she should be weakened by it. Her sister Flandre is even described as cheerfully playing around with crosses in the spinoff game ''Shoot the Bullet''. On the other hand, as she explains in one of ''Embodiment of Scarlet Devil's'' endings, direct exposure to sunlight ''does'' hurt her and she ''will'' burn to ashes if exposed to it for too long (what constitutes "too long" is not defined)--which is why she has to use a parasol during the day. Also, since the Japanese word for vampire has the kanji for [{{oni}} in it, they share weaknesses with them like sardine heads, broken holly branches and roasted soybeans.

** The episode "Lie to Me," when the Scoobies encounter a group of would-be vampires who have bought into the idea of vampires as romantic and misunderstood. Angel grouses at moderate length about their misapprehensions, noting in particular "Do they really think we dress like that?" ...Only to have one of the groupies push past him wearing his exact outfit.
** In his first appearance, Spike expresses incredulity that people still buy into "the [[Literature/TheVampireChronicles Anne Rice routine]]" about romantic, tortured vampires. [[HilariousInHindsight Ironically, being exactly that defines his character a few seasons later.]]

* In Creator/ChinaMieville's ''Literature/TheScar'', it's more like "all vampires suck," as vampires are described as having a reputation as "junkies" among the other undead.

* In Creator/ChinaMieville's ''Literature/TheScar'', it's more like "all vampires suck," as vampires are described as having a reputation as "junkies" among the other undead. Specifically, their need to sustain themselves on blood makes them less formidable monsters of the night and more homeless addicts in constant need of a fix.

** In one episode of ''Series/{{Angel}}'', Angel becomes offended when asked by a demon if he should be sleeping in his coffin. Then again, the demon was playing ObfuscatingStupidity with Angel.

* ''TabletopGame/{{Mortasheen}}'' has a [[OurMonstersAreWeird very strange]] TakeThat (given that [[OurVampiresAreDifferent most of Mortasheen's vampires are based on aquatic lifeforms]]) to ''Literature/{{Twilight}}'' with the monster [[http://www.bogleech.com/mortasheen/twileye.htm Twileye]].
-->''Vain, brash and sometimes juvenile, Twileye regard themselves as simply "too amazing" for "lesser beings" to appreciate. To them, the pained howls of their victims are the shamed cries of those who have finally seen "true beauty" and understand "how ugly and stupid they really look."''

* ''Literature/NightfallSeries'': Myra looks at the vampire novels in the Resistance’s small library and thinks about how Old World fiction used to romanticize vampires. She wonders if any of the authors would exchange places with her and live the reality.

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.
