*** To get even more complicated, the Pillar Men were actually superpowered members of their kind. They themselves were empowered by the Stone Mask, giving them their increased sun and Ripple resistance along with their ElementalPowers. Indeed, the Mask's true purpose was to unlock ''their'' true potential, with the end goal of CompleteImmortality. This gave them a greater need to consume other lifeforms, which made it fortunate that the mask ''also'' turned humans into much more substantial meals. From what we see of the rest of the Pillar Men's kind, they aren't anywhere near as powerful. They appeared to wield conventional weaponry and were entirely wiped out by the empowered Kars and Esidisi.

** For starters, the most powerful ones are created by Mayan artifacts called the Stone Masks. While they have fangs, they feed through their ''fingers''. They are not adversely affected by water, but direct exposure to sunlight means instant disintegration and permanent death for them. They don't need to drain blood constantly, but doing so keeps them young and, if the person they drain was particularly powerful, it makes them exponentially stronger. Those killed by Stone Mask vampires rise again as undead, but are much weaker and are usually called "zombies"; this variety has a simple personality based on their most outstanding personality trait and, unlike Stone Mask vampires, cannot heal wounds. Stone Mask vampires ''can'', however, create other Stone Mask vampires by giving a human (including centuries-old corpses) their blood (as Dio did to Vanilla Ice). The only method short of sunlight or [[BattleAura the Ripple]] that slays a vampire, Stone Mask or zombie, is grievous head trauma; decapitation merely leads to a living, severed head that can then attach to and take over any handy body, [[spoiler:as Dio did to Jonathan Joestar's corpse]]. While it was never 100% explained why blunt head trauma was deadly to the vampires, it is most likely due to the fact that the vampires in [=JoJo=] were originally humans that had specific points in the brain exposed to a severe acupuncture, which awakened what was supposedly a human's "[[NinetyPercentOfYourBrain true potential]]". That being said, getting punched in the head really hard may damage one of the activated brain points. Their powers are also outside the norm, including (but not limited to) the ability to shoot high-pressure blood from their eyes, blood freezing, and the ability to walk on walls and ceilings.

* The [=Protodevlin=] from ''Anime/Macross7'' which can be best be described as [[NinjaPirateZombieRobot Alien Space Vampires]], who suck life energy out of people and can do it from a distance.

* One of ''Manga/{{Bleach}}''[='=]s earlier arcs focused on the Bounts, a tribe of [[spoiler:artificially developed]] supernatural soul-suckers. Historically, they've been known as vampires although they notably don't conform to many of the usual tales; for example, people simply die after being a Bount's meal. And no one knew about the [[EmpathicWeapon talking supernaturally powered dolls]], all with [[ThemeNaming German names and summon commands]].

The Japanese vampire typically has very pale hair (usually [[BlondGuysAreEvil blonde]], though [[WhiteHairBlackHeart white]] and [[YouGottaHaveBlueHair lavender]] also work) and [[RedEyesTakeWarning bright red eyes]]. This may reflect the influence of Creator/YoshitakaAmano's illustrations for the ''LightNovel/VampireHunterD'' series and for the Japanese adaptations of [[Literature/TheElricSaga Elric of Melnibone]] (which stars a handsome HeroicAlbino). It may also be part of the idea that vampires are European and [[PhenotypeStereotype will look like it]]. They are also usually very "beautiful" (see {{Bishonen}} and {{Bishoujo}}), but, possibly surprisingly, they rarely [[BishieSparkle sparkle]].

* In ''{{Manga/Uzumaki}}'', the pregnant women at the hospital are an interesting example. Their behavior is based off of mosquitoes more than on traditional or mythological vampires.

* In an early episode of ''Anime/{{Pokemon}}'' Misty pulls out a crucifix, some garlic, a wooden stake, and a hammer to attempt to ward off a Gastly. Since she's WrongGenreSavvy - Gastlys are sort of ghosts and not vampires - it doesn't work, although the sun rises and drives him away immediately afterwards.

* In ''{{Shiki}}'', vampires can only drink up to one bowl of blood per night, are subjected to the daylight/MustBeInvited weaknesses, and are scared to, hum, undeath by religious symbols. They have some kind of MindControl over their victims, [[spoiler:and all of them do not transform into vampires after death.

* ''Manga/SeraphOfTheEnd'''s vampires are a rather traditional type. Full-blooded vampires have pointy ears, red eyes, and gradually lose their human emotions if they live long enough. They produce no body heat and have no libido, though drinking blood, especially straight from a human, is very pleasurable to them. They also have to wear special armbands or rings to protect them from sunlight; UV rays create a toxin in their bodies. Oddly, some high-ranked female vampires appear to have horns.
** Humans can be turned by drinking a progenitor (the highest ranked vampires)'s blood, though this is frowned upon as the vampires don't like increasing their numbers. Until they drink human blood, these vampires will age and retain their normal eye color.
