* 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]].

Added DiffLines:

* 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. Those of the [[OurWerewolvesAreDifferent Jinrou]] subspecies are not affected by any of these weaknesses.]]

Added DiffLines:

* ''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.

* One character in ''SpeedGrapher'' compares the Euphorics to vampires, noting how [[GenreSavvy in modern works, vampirism is often made "scientific" by being transmitted through virus]]. Euphorics likewise get their powers from a virus, and like many vampires, possess a HealingFactor. Also probably important is the sexual violence element of vampires, which is mirrored by the fact that Euphoric powers are their (sexual) fetishes weaponized.

* Miyu of ''VampirePrincessMiyu''. Also, in the setting, vampires are a form of EldritchAbomination called a Shinma, who police the rogues of their race and return them to their own reality when they escape to torment humans: Miyu is the one who carries out this mission. Also, Miyu does not seem to choose "victims" arbitrarily: only those who come to her for her "special gift," usually those on the DespairEventHorizon. It appears those she draws from don't necessarily die but instead their minds are left in an eternal bliss.

* ''{{Soul Eater}}'' has Mosquito, whose appearance, depending on the amount of blood he's consumed, varies from a little old man, a giant insect, something kind of resembling a gorilla, to a black suit-clad bishounen (each form older and stronger than the last). The kind of blood seems to matter, as Mosquito is very interested in [[{{Shinigami}} Death the Kid]]'s 'D-type' blood. He doesn't get to drink it, merely cause the boy to lose quite a bit through (temporary) loss of limb.

* Seraphim, Maelstrom/[[strike:Tomonori]]Yuki and Sarasvati/Kirara from ''LightNovel/KoreWaZombieDesuKa'' are [[GratuitousNinja ninjas]]. All they need is to occasionally suck blood; their kiss helpfully makes it painless for whoever they're feeding on. Also being kissed by the opposite sex [[spoiler: equals marriage.]]
