* Bloodsucker class enemies in the ''VideoGame/DarkestDungeon'' DLC ''The Crimson Court'' are HalfHumanHybrids between human and Hematophagic arthopods (ticks and mosquitoes, mostly). They all have an attack called "The Thirst," which allows them to LifeDrain and [[TurnsRed become more dangerous]].

* ''VideoGame/DarkestDungeon'' has Mosquito/Human hybrids, with more powerful ones gaining flea-like mandibles and lower bodies. Even the less powerful ones, with time, grow elongated noses they can drain blood with and bloodied fangs. And the longer the infection roils, the more insectoid they become. 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]].

* ''VideoGame/DarkestDungeon'' has Mosquito/Human hybrids, with more powerful ones gaining flea-like mandibles and lower bodies. Even the less powerful ones, with time, grow elongated noses they can drain Crimson Curse, a transmittable vampiric curse that infects humans. It comes in two notable forms:
** 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 bloodied elongated, mosquito-like noses, as well as pronounced fangs. And the The longer this process continues, the infection roils, mor einsect-like the more insectoid they become.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.

*** ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsArena Arena]] has Vampires as a type of enemy. They are powerful spell casters and are known to spread disease (however, they cannot actually spread Vampirism itself).

* 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 romboid crystals and a happy, experimentative disposition.

*** Flandre is also insane and extremely isolated to prevent rampages; 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.

*** Flandre is also insane and has considerable mental issues, probably due to having been extremely isolated to prevent rampages; 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.

* The vampires of ''VideoGame/TheSecretWorld'' are immune to garlic, aren't affected by holy symbols, can cross running water, can be seen in mirrors, and only need to be staked if they're elders; in fact, the only weakness they share with classic vampires is sunlight, which they can avoid by wearing heavily-padded armor. For good measure, it's clear that vampires actually invented many of the weaknesses attributed to them in folklore in order to disadvantage hunters. However, all vampires grow steadily more powerful as they age: young, freshly-sired bloodsuckers are little more than mooks, while older vamps qualify as boss material; those drawn from shorter bloodlines leading back to the earliest strains of vampirism are stronger still, able to use BloodMagic, resist sunlight, transform into bats, and even resurrect themselves if staked. Lore entries reveals that vampires aren't actually immortal: they just live for a ''really'' long time, and because they live such violent lives, nobody's seen one die of old age yet. [[spoiler: It's also revealed that vampires are actually a creation of ''' ''[[HumanoidAbomination Lilith]],''' '' who first hybridized humans with demons, then distilled the resulting mutations into a blood-borne virus. Though immortal already, she infected herself with the virus so that she could create new vampires at a moment's notice]].
** Also appearing in the game are the "Sanguine Hulk" vampires, a rare variant created when vampires become desperate or stupid enough to drink the blood of fellow vampires; comparable to steroid usage and blood-doping in humans, this cannibalistic process causes the vampire to balloon into ComicBook/{{Bane}}-like monstrosities capable of serving as humanoid siege engines. Unfortunately, the process [[DeadlyUpgrade amplifies their hunger and shortens their lifespans]], and because they're so volatile, other vampires usually end up offing them as liabilities anyway.
** And then there's the results of the [[SovietSuperscience Red Hand]]'s experiments at Facility 10: a unique bargain with the vampire queen Mara provided the Soviets with a huge supply of vampire genetic material, which they used to create their own SuperSoldiers. If anything, they were even bigger than the Hulks, could walk in daylight, and usually sported a nightmarish array of weaponry. Unfortunately, they were also borderline uncontrollable except through direct psychic manipulation - which is why Facility 10 was eventually [[SealedEvilInACan sealed shut]] with the scientists and prototypes still inside. Unfortunately, the base was completely self-sustaining, giving the vampire researchers all the time in the world to go on making monsters until Mara came to release them.

* 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.
** The Cainhurst Vileblood however resembles traditional vampires, from their attires, castle, and their need of Blood Dregs pillaged from their victim, makes them stand out from the rest.
