* As mentioned above, ''GaiaOnline'' vampires do not die in sunlight. They just get really sunburned, really easily. And sometimes catch fire. They do still need blood though, but can subsist on human-style fare (though [[IDoNotDrinkWine they find it unpleasant]]) or [[VegetarianVampire soy-based blood substitutes]]. Also, (as Louie is quick to point out), ''they do not sparkle''. Stop asking.

Added DiffLines:

* ''WebVideo/{{Carmilla}}'': Vampires such as the titular [[LesbianVampire Carmilla]] are not weakened by sunlight, though the standard staking does apply (the rest of the main cast pulls out garlic at one point, but it's not all that clear whether it actually does anything). They're also seen to be super strong, super fast, and have a variety of other powers such as lighting things on fire and shapeshifting (only into an animal form specific to each vampire). It's also explicitly stated that the powers afforded to a vampire grow as one ages. Some have been shown to have an even wider range of abilities including teleportation, sonic screams, some equivalent of magic, and DemonicPossession. On a physical level, they don't age, but according to a bonus, apparently canon side video, they're fully capable of reproduction (implied by the fact that the video in question confirms that this universe's vampires can get [[NoPeriodsPeriod periods]]).

Added DiffLines:

* In ''The Sanguine Chronicles'', by Creator/RHJunior:
** Vampires possess a wide variety of PsychicPowers, including illusions, telekinesis, control of small animals, and mind control. They also definitely have a HealingFactor, and may have SuperStrength (unclear whether it's actually strength or just TK).
** Sunlight won't kill them, but it does switch off their abilities.
** They do in fact reflect in mirrors (the author speculates that the myth that they don't may be the result of a vampiric habit of using illusions (which really don't have reflections) as body doubles).
** Decapitation will kill them, but you've still got a body on your hands.
** A stake through the heart won't kill them, but it will paralyze them.
** Most of the rest of the classic vampiric weaknesses (can't cross running water, must be invited in, repelled by holy symbols), are all various manifestations of OCD. While every vampire has these OCD compulsions, there's no way to tell which ones any given vampire might have. A vampire might be unable to make himself cross thresholds but have no problem with holy symbols or counting things.
** They do feed on blood, but don't need to take that much.
** Anyone they bite becomes infected with the vampiric disease. However, the vast majority of humans are immune, and shrug off the disease without ever noticing. Of those that are vulnerable, many die of combined disease and blood loss before the transformation finishes. These two factors are the main thing keeping the vampiric population down.

* [[LimyaaelsFantasyRants Limyaael]] has a rant on [[http://limyaael.livejournal.com/293983.html vampires in fantasy fiction]], which is apparently common breeding grounds for vampiric love interests.

Added DiffLines:

* ''[[Literature/UntilMyColorFadesAway Until My Color Fades Away]]'' has vampberries instead of vampires. They can be killed via stake (which is pretty much the only way), do not sleep in coffins, and have skin and eyes that slightly glow. When they cry, their tears are the color of the last [[AmazingTechnicolorPopulation mortal]] they drank from, and after drinking directly from a mortal, their eyes will turn red, if they [[TechnicolorEyes aren't already]]. For some reason, they all have a black mark on their throats, shaped somewhat like a V, or some sort of bite mark. There's also a monarchy.

* Eddie from ''TheInsaneQuest'' is an odd case, having nearly all the weaknesses of a traditional vampire and none of their strengths (except when under the influence of his SuperPoweredEvilSide). He can survive on a diet that does not contain any blood (though the smell of it causes him to go into a shark-like feeding frenzy) and can withstand mild doses of sunlight but temporarily disintegrates when exposed to high concentrations of light. Since no other vampires have appeared in the series, it is unknown whether all vampires in his universe share these attributes, though it is implied that he is a weakling by their standards.
