* Vampires were added to ''VideoGame/DwarfFortress'' in 2012. They do not age, sleep, or starve, but their thirst requires them to regularly drink blood or become monstrous. They don't burn in sunlight, but can be killed by mundane means. They are typically far more bad ass than the average dwarf citizen, having lived for hundreds of years under many professions with thousands of kills under their belt. Mortal dwarves and adventurers can become vampires by drinking vampire blood.

Mortal dwarves and adventurers can become vampires originate from beings cursed for profaning a deity's temple (although the curse can be spread by drinking vampire blood.blood). They are TheNeedless (except for blood) and immortal, but can be killed normally. They have double the physical stats of their living selves, but these stats cannot increase. In Fortress Mode, they'll disguise themselves as immigrants and behave like a normal citizens, but will occasionally seek out sleeping dwarves and drink their blood, which is usually lethal. They'll even accuse other dwarves of their crime.

* With the kind of setting ''Videogame/{{Bloodborne}}'' has, you'd expect vampires to show up anytime soon. But considering that the prime medical treatment for anything in Yharnam is drinking blood, the number one way to get a pleasant buzz in Yharnam is ''also'' drinking blood, and judging by the prostitute's comments, the Yharnam populace's favorite pleasurable activity is ''also'' drinking blood. One starts to realize actually naming anyone a vampire would be ''redundant''. Even ''you'', as a Hunter, heal by injecting a Blood Vial onto your neck or splattering beast blood onto your wounds. In other words, after accepting the blood ministration from the very beginning, you are more or less a vampire yourself in all but name.
** The Cainhurst Vilebloods, or what is left of them, embody the typical Eastern European vampire appearance-wise: nobles dressed in medieval finery who live in a musty old castle. Their preferred method of gaining blood, however, is to salvage blood dregs from the corpses of the slain for their Queen.

* In ''VideoGame/TheDarksideDetective'', one of the characters is a fan of a trashy paranormal romance called ''Guylight'', which features a "reverse vampire" who can only come out during the day. When [=McQueen=] queries how this can be dramatic, he's informed that there's a heartrending sequence in which the hero is unable to take the heroine to the prom like he promised.

Added DiffLines:

*** Except Flandre once stated to Marisa that she didn't need to breathe to 'live' which suggests undeadness.

* Meet Graf Michael Sepperin of ''{{Rosenkreuzstilette}}''. As if just organizing for a coup to be launched against the Empire just wasn't enough, leave it to him to make a DealWithTheDevil and begin using the forbidden arts to transform himself into a vampire and begin commanding an army of monsters, demons, and the undead, and even bring Raimund back from the dead as TheGrimReaper. The Graf not only is one of the [[BigBad BigBads]] ([[spoiler:other than his biological daughter, of course, who takes the spotlight of main BigBad from him after his defeat]]), but is also an {{Expy}} of {{Dracula}} of ''Franchise/{{Castlevania}}'' fame, even coming complete with a demonic transformation. Not to mention, he even randomly says one out of two lines when he transforms, the famous "Grant me power!" line and even the "I am the Devil!" one that references to Dr. Weil of ''VideoGame/MegaManZero'' fame.

* There are two known vampires in ''[[VideoGame/{{Touhou}} Gensokyo]]'': Remilia Scarlet and Flandre Scarlet. Remilia is somewhat more traditional as a vampire, disliking sunlight, turning into a bat, [[WordOfGod claiming]] [[BlatantLies direct descendence from Dracula]], and such. However, [[YourVampiresSuck she actually]] ''[[YourVampiresSuck likes]]'' [[YourVampiresSuck cross imagery]], and is ''really'' weirded out when people seem to assume it should hurt her [[WickedCultured (she also tends to drink her blood in teacups prepared by her servant]] [[VampireBitesSuck because she tends to spill far too much of it when she bites people herself)]]. Flandre, on the other hand, looks like a vampire only in her drive for drinking blood (itself questionable, she drinks blood given to her by her maid, but when confronted with a human, WordOfGod says she blows them up without a trace of blood to drink remaining) - she's a cute little PersonOfMassDestruction (and ''how''!) with "wings" made of rainbow-colored rhomboid crystals and a happy, experimentative disposition.

*** Flandre has considerable mental issues, probably due to having been extremely isolated to prevent her from inflicting widespread damage; she might not know what vampire tricks she can do. Remilia, being more stable, intellectual, and in-control, would have had time and opportunity to learn.

* Vampires are one of the [[NinjaPirateZombieRobot many]] forms of the Revenant from ''[[NexusWar Nexus Clash]]''. Vampiric revenants can turn into bats, [[LifeDrain drain life]] with their fangs, and gain supernatural perception that not even invisible characters can hide from.

** The first type is transmitted through drinking the blood of a true vampire, like the Countess. Drinking this blood causes a gradual transformation in the victim that causes their bodies to metamorph into grotesque insect-like forms based around ticks and mosquitos, with their bodies browing wings, thoraxes, bulbous multi-faceted eyes, multiple legs, and elongated, mosquito-like noses, as well as pronounced fangs. The longer this process continues, the mor einsect-like the body become,s until the most avanced versions look like gigantic insects with vaguely human-like features like arms and heads. It also decays the mind in a peculiar way, as the infected starts clinging to humanity in the strangest ways, so that even in the middle of a sinking, crumbling ruin within a rotten, mosquito-infested swamp the vampires act like a DeadlyDecadentCourt, complete with duelists, feasts, and some of the hosts trying to entertain their guests by torturing your hapless party. The vampires are insane and monstrous, but they still have the sharpened minds of the vilest and most decadent [[AristocratsAreEvil nobility of old]].
** The second variant comes from being bitten by the aforementioned insect vampires. While less severe, with the victim remaining human, the Curse that comes from this results in the victim requiring a steady supply of blood. These vampires develop an intense addiction to blood and will go mad without it, steadily progressing from a passive state to a "craving" state where they act a little erratically, the a maddened, "wasting" state where they are starving and will go to any length to get more blood, until they finally die. Feeding them blood results in them entering a euphoric "bloodlusted" state where they become much more powerful and dangerous for a short time.

Notably, these vampires' HorrorHunger requires a specific item known as The Blood, which is apparently some combination of wine and blood created via a specific brewing method, which you can replicate using the Sanguine Vintner building in the Hamlet.
