History time: In the original folklore, most vampires were short, ugly, Eastern European peasants. Then Polidori creates the character of [[Literature/TheVampyre Lord Ruthven]] and suddenly they're all elegant, English, aristocratic and [[NoCelebritiesWereHarmed look suspiciously like Lord Byron]]. Rymer's ''Literature/VarneyTheVampire'' gives them fangs and the whole "wandering the world hating what they've become" thing. Then Sheridan Le Fanu's ''Literature/{{Carmilla}}'' was written, and vampires suddenly became alluring, [[LesbianVampire bisexual]] upper-class gothic girls. Then, ''Literature/{{Dracula}}'' was written, and they're still elegant aristocrats, but moved back to Eastern Europe, presentable and dignified yet disguising an inner corruption. Thus, horror turned to fetish, and pop culture... ''ahem''... the world was never the same again. And we all know [[Literature/{{Twilight}} what happened since]].

In the early 1920s, F.W. Murnau had a great idea. Since the {{German Expressionis|m}}t movement was all about stylization, why not apply this to vampires? Why not create a vampire that [[RedRightHand looks exactly like what he is]]: a parasitic bloodsucker? And so, ''Film/{{Nosferatu}}'' got made, and [[KeepCirculatingTheTapes very nearly]] destroyed.

But Murnau's character, Orlok, played by scary-ass stage actor Max Schreck, has become one of the most iconic vampires ever, and has spawned a flock of [[CaptainErsatz imitators]], typically used as a contrast to the elegant, pretty vampires, who [[BeautyEqualsGoodness for some reason]] are more likely to be treated [[FriendlyNeighborhoodVampire sympathetically]], or at least [[EvilIsCool respectfully]].

In order to qualify as a character who Looks Like Orlok, they must possess some combination of the following:
* [[BaldOfEvil No hair]]
* PointyEars
* [[SinisterSchnoz Hooked nose]]
* [[FemmeFatalons Claws]]
* CreepyLongFingers
* {{Fangs|AreEvil}} on their front teeth, rather than canines (like an actual vampire bat).
* [[PrimalStance Hunchback]]
* [[BadassLongcoat Trenchcoat]], ideally with oversize lapels

Part of Murnau's intention was to make Orlok look like the [[TheVirus plague]]-carrying [[YouDirtyRat rats]] to which he is explicitly compared throughout the film.

A form of OurVampiresAreDifferent; see also ClassicalMovieVampire (resembling Creator/BelaLugosi, who codified the look). Compare LooksLikeCesare. Also known for their PivotalWakeup.



* Count Chocula, the spokes-vampire for UsefulNotes/GeneralMills' chocolate/marshmallow cereal, isn't ''purely'' this trope -- he has the Lugosian dark hair and widows's peak and tidy, aristocratic clothing, but he has the pointed ears, extra-long fingers with claw-like nails, narrow, hooked nose, and pointy little rat-fangs in place of his incisors rather than as canine teeth. He really owes more to Orlok than to Lugosi.

[[folder:Anime and Manga]]
* ''Anime/{{Hellsing}}'', the antagonist Incognito's appearance seems to be based on that of Count Orlok. By contrast, Alucard is based on the more popular imagery of the [[EvilIsSexy suave]] Dracula. Then again, {{Alucard}} ''[[SdrawkcabAlias is]]'' [[SdrawkcabAlias Dracula.]]
* ''Manga/BlackCat'' gives us Preta [[AwesomeMcCoolname Ghoul]]. He used to have hair, though, until it rotted out.
* The lizard chimera Bido of ''Manga/FullmetalAlchemist'' is completely bald (with a speckled head) and has the requisite pale skin, hooked nose and sharp teeth, and he furthers the similarity by the cloak he always wears, so he can hide from normal humans. Granted, he also has a rather large tail.
* Abidani of ''Manga/GambleFish''. He's a vindictive, macabre, sadistic character with a bald head, a very angular face, spindly limbs, a hooked nose, elf ears, a slight hunch and spiky teeth. This appearance was caused due to [[spoiler: Abidani being nearly electrocuted to death by an electric chair as a young man]].

[[folder:Comic Books]]
* Dr. Sivana the MadScientist from the ''ComicBook/{{Shazam}}'' comic books.
* Moloch from ''Comicbook/{{Watchmen}}'', especially after he gets cancer.
* Count Ambrosio from ''ComicBook/TheUnwritten''.
* In a Creator/JhonenVasquez comic, an [[VampireVannabe angsty teenage boy]] desperately wishes to be made a real vampire-- and his wish is granted by one. Instead of becoming a [[EvilIsCool hip and stylish regent of the night]], though, he gains a hideous form whose oversized bald cranium and tusk-like fangs only keep growing as he drinks blood. The final page shows him far into the future, with a head the size of a van, watching TV and thinking "That ''fucking'' vampire."
* The Carnival Geek Cannibal version of The Vulture in ''ComicBook/SpiderManNoir'' is based on Orlok. The main Franchise/MarvelUniverse Vulture almost fits the trope to begin with.
* A short ''ComicBook/SamAndMaxFreelancePolice'' Halloween comic featured what might be Orlok himself as the villain. Sam [[SugarWiki/FunnyMoments kicks him in the face.]]
* The vampire in the Cal [=McDonald=] miniseries ''Two Red Eyes'' is a homage Orlok and is known only by the name Nosferatu.
* In ''ComicBook/ThePunisher'''s "Franken-Castle" arc, artist Tony Moore drew ComicBook/{{Morbius}} a little more like this than he's usually portrayed.
* Lord Cryptos and Black Sabbat in ''ComicBook/RequiemVampireKnight'' are very unconventional takes on this trope. They are bald vampires with pointy ears and sharp teeth, but the former looks like [[UndeadChild an baby]] and the latter has [[DarkIsEvil pitch-black skin]].

[[folder:Fan Fic]]
* The ''ComicBook/{{Watchmen}}''/''{{Dracula}}'' FusionFic ''FanFic/BramStokersOzymandias'' features a vampiric version of [[WellIntentionedExtremist Adrian Veidt]] who looks a bit like this (though with pointed canines instead of incisors, a full head of hair even if it's a bit thin, and an age-related stoop rather than a real hump) before he regenerates to his handsome, canon form.

* The Strangers from ''Film/DarkCity'', while not as facially deformed as Orlock himself, do strongly give off the same impression with their pallor, baldness and eerie movements.
* Riff-Raff from ''Film/TheRockyHorrorPictureShow'' was partly patterned after Orlok - dark overcoat, balding, thin features and a hunchback. Creator/RichardOBrien would later play the creepy Orlok-alike Mister Hand in ''Film/DarkCity''.
* Creator/WernerHerzog's movie ''[=Nosferatu=] The Vampyre'', staring Creator/KlausKinski, which is sort of a remake, keeps this character design, but changes Orlok's name back to Dracula.
* ''Film/ShadowOfTheVampire'': Willam Dafoe as Max Schreck playing Orlok, but he really looks like that because he really is a vampire.
* The Reapers from ''Film/BladeII'', formed by a plague within the vampire community. The plague turns the sexy normal vampires into Orlok style monsters.
* At one point in ''Film/BramStokersDracula'', [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mzyeGBdQmCM Dracula himself turns into a bat monster]] that has many of these characteristics, such as huge bat-like ears, claws and fangs.
* Freddy Krueger's appearance in ''Franchise/ANightmareOnElmStreet'' is somewhat based off of this. In fact, Creator/RobertEnglund even once stated that he based some of Freddy's movements on Orlok's.
* The vampire in the 1979 TV movie version of Creator/StephenKing's ''[[Literature/SalemsLot Salem's Lot]]''. Curiously, this is unique to this version of the story; the original novel's vampire antagonist is perfectly human-looking.
* The vampires of ''Film/ThirtyDaysOfNight'' are a successful balance of a Nosferatu-like vampire and the prevalent "pretty" vampire, so much so they seem to have sparked a revival of the former appearance. They have black irises, pasty-white skin, claws, and shark-like teeth.
* One of the running gags in the [[Recap/MysteryScienceTheater3000S07E05Escape2000 [=MST=]ing]] of ''Film/{{Escape 2000}}'' is that the main female character looks like Orlok.
* The mutated vampires from ''Film/{{Daybreakers}}'' seem to be heading in this direction. Lack of blood in their diet causes them to revert to a feral state indicated by loss of hair, bulbous head, elongated face, pointy ears, and growth of claws. Of course, these are accompanied by several non-Orlok characteristics like loss of higher brain function, and even arms devolving into wings in extreme cases.
* In ''Film/VanHelsing'', Dracula and his wives all play out the OneWingedAngel trope and can transform from their good-looking normal appearance into bat monsters. In the case of Dracula himself, his "true form" is an Orlok-looking creature with bat wings.
* The chief librarian of the monastery in ''Literature/TheNameOfTheRose'' looks like Orlok. It's set in TheDungAges, so all the [[GrotesqueGallery ugliest monks]] seem to wield high influence.
* The makers of ''Film/StarTrekNemesis'' were going for this look for the Remans.
** Krall and his soldiers in ''Film/StarTrekBeyond'' also look like Orlok.
* In ''Film/TheLordOfTheRings'', Gollum looks like a wet version of this.
* The night-terror creatures in ''Film/{{They}}'' have heads that Look Like Orlok, while their bodies are even more extreme in their bestial, spindly twistedness.
* Timothy Spall's Peter Pettigrew in ''Film/HarryPotter'' has elements of this, though he's only bald''ing'' and he ditches the longcoat for a much-less-impressive cheap suit. He's TheRenfield, and the character, like Orlock, [[YouDirtyRat is associated with rats]], so it's kinda fitting.
* Creator/NicolasCage does a rather impressive physical impression of Orlok in ''Film/VampiresKiss.''
* [[http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Pau%27an The Pau'an species,]] as seen in the ''Franchise/StarWars'' prequels, are obviously based on Orlok's looks; though in a subversion of the expected demeanor, [[DarkIsNotEvil they're actually a very decent people]], who usually do their best to take the more moral side in a conflict.
** A more famous ''Star Wars'' example would be [[BigBad the Emperor himself]], who plays the evil part straight.
** Another one would be the [[NinjaPirateZombieRobot alien cyborg]] General Grievous in ''Film/RevengeOfTheSith'', whose general appearance combines this trope with SkeleBot9000. Though he doesn't have the huge nose ([[TheNoseless or any nose at all]]), every other aspect is present: his metal suit is bone-like pale, his head has sharp edges reminiscent of both fangs and bat ears, his fingers and body proportions are very long and pointy, and he visibly hunches for most of the movie, drapped in a black cape.
* Radu, from ''Film/{{Subspecies}}'', looks like Orlok with long hair. Sort of like [[JustForFun/XMeetsY the bastard child]] of Orlok and [[Film/TheRoom Wiseau]].
* Dracula's brides in ''Film/HouseOfTheWolfMan'' are explicitly based on the trope's namesake.
* Gru from ''WesternAnimation/DespicableMe'' looks like a taller and more rotund Orlok with a scarf.
* The Penguin in ''Film/BatmanReturns'', though shorter and stouter than most examples, shares Orlok's sunken eyes, elongated nose, pointy fingers, and hunch, although he's more clearly modeled on [[Film/TheCabinetOfDrCaligari Dr. Caligari]].
* The Elder Vampire from ''Film/DraculaUntold'' is bald, white-skinned, has pointy teeth, and long claws. He lacks the elongated nose, but other than that he's pretty much Count Orlok. [[spoiler:Subverted in the present-day epilogue, where he's still the same ancient vampire, but has reverted to or assumed his fully human appearance.]]
* Petyr from ''Film/WhatWeDoInTheShadows'', seemingly due to his immense age (8000 years old). The other, younger vampires are pallid but otherwise human looking, though Vladislav shows some decrepit appearance when he's feeling particularly down before the big gala event.
* {{Film/Goosebumps}} has Count Nightwing who looks like Count Orlok.
* ''Film/{{Bright}}'': While not a vampire, [[TheBrute Serafin]] is an elf that highly resembles this trope due to having bald hair, pointed ears and sharp teeth.
* ''Film/FromDuskTillDawn'': When Santanico Pandemonium fully transitions into her vampire form, she basically looks like a [[LizardFolk reptilian version]] of Orlok: bald, pointy ears, fangs, and scales.


* To some extent, [[AristocratsAreEvil Count]] [[EvilUncle Olaf]] from ''Literature/ASeriesOfUnfortunateEvents'' is a non-vampiric example.
* Jean Mark from the ''Literature/DoraWilkSeries'', who tries to look like a "classic" vampire despite the fact that in setting, VampiresAreSexGods. Effects are... mixed.
* ''Literature/HarryPotter:''
** Voldemort seems inspired a bit by the look of Orlok, only without a nose.
** Severus Snape, everyone's favorite gaunt, pallid, hook-nosed recluse. (In fact, for a while, fans used to speculate that he was a vampire.) Instead of the trenchcoat, though, Snape chooses to wear a long black, batlike robe. And [[AdaptationalAttractiveness the movies kinda ditched this look]] when they hired Creator/AlanRickman to play Snape.
** Ironically, ''actual'' vampires in the series don't fall under this trope, being more or less humans with fangs.
* In the ''Literature/{{Discworld}}'' series:
** Bob in ''The Discworld Reformed Vampyres' Diary 2003''. Subversion in that, over the course of a series of notes between the Black Ribbon leader and the woman who plays the harmonium, it becomes apparent that he isn't actually a vampire at all.
** Count von Magpyr's grandfather's portrait in ''Discworld/CarpeJugulum''.
** In TheFilmOfTheBook ''Discworld/GoingPostal'', Mr. Gryle, the assassin sent by Reacher Gilt to kill Moist, is this. He's described in less detail in the book but gives off a similar impression. He's [[OurBansheesAreLouder a banshee]] rather than a vampire, although since Discworld banshees prey on humans (the scream isn't an ''omen'' of death, it means the banshee is tracking you and will actively kill you) they're similar to vampires.
* The Master's appearance from ''Literature/TheStrain'' is heavily influenced by Orlock.
* Vampires in ''Literature/NightWatch'' look like this, when they shed their human disguise and reveal their true appearance.
* The ''vrykoloi'' in ''Literature/TheBonePalace'' by Amanda Downum look rather like this; rather bestial, even the prettier ones, starving-thin, bat-like ears, animal fangs, light-sensitive eyes.
* In the ''Literature/LauraCaxton'' novels, vampires have the bald head and pointy ear thing going on, and some let their fingernails grow long and claw-like. However, instead of two front teeth fangs, their whole mouths are full of row after row of sharp teeth, like a shark. Oh, and they're also [[EvilAlbino albinos]].
* Concept art for the [[Literature/NewJediOrder Yuuzhan Vong]] depicts them as this. One major difference is that instead of a hooked nose, they have no nose whatsoever. Their warriors at least are also very fit and athletic-looking.
* Charlie Manx in ''Literature/{{NOS4A2}}'' is described as looking like this although he's not a vampire in the traditional sense; instead, he maintains his youth by his car draining the souls of children as he kidnaps them to a semi-imaginary realm.
* Not a vampire, but [[EvilSorcerer Ixion]] looks like this when he's introduced in the ''Fall of Ile-Rien'' trilogy. It later turns out that he's essentially possessing a magically-created clone of himself (the original Ixion having been killed shortly before the first book), and the reason he looks like he does is because a [[ANaziByAnyOtherName Gardier]] officer had him pulled out of the vat before he was done. The clone body stabilizes during the second book, and Ixion turns out to actually be moderately attractive, if somewhat into the UncannyValley.
* In Kim Newman's ''Literature/AnnoDracula'' series, Baron Orlok looks like himself (and moves with a weird jerkiness).

[[folder:Live-Action TV]]
* There was a Nosferatu look-alike in an episode of ''Series/AreYouAfraidOfTheDark'' titled "The Tale Of The Midnight Madness". It should be noted that the "look-alike" actually ''was'' Nosferatu, come to life from a version of the film where he kills everyone and ''[[TheBadGuyWins wins!]]'' Sleep well, kids!
* The aptly-named Nosferatu clan from ''TabletopGame/VampireTheMasquerade'' and its spin-off TV series, ''Series/KindredTheEmbraced''. Their curse is hideous looks, no matter how pretty they used to be as mortal humans.
* ''Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer'':
** TheMaster. The interesting thing is that the vampires in that world usually look like normal humans most of the time and then put on their vampiric GameFace when they're about to do some vampire shit. The Master is so old that he's now in permanent Looks-like-Orlok-mode, and the other vampires are pretty impressed by it.
** The Turok-han [[EliteMooks ubervamps]] from the final season also followed the Orlok mold.
** The Prince of Lies in ''Series/{{Angel}}'' (episode "Why We Fight") is probably the most explicitly based on Orlok, with trademark pointed ears and long fingers. Like other Buffyverse examples, his appearance is credited to age. (It is not stated whether or not his evident senility could also be so credited.)
** [[spoiler: Simone Doffler]], once sired by Maloker (the progenitor vampire/Old One). Aside from her freakish vampire bat NightmareFace, she also becomes emaciated, pale, and grows long taloned fingers.
* The Na'kuhl from ''Series/StarTrekEnterprise'' also have the Orlock look.
* The TV-movie version of ''Salem's Lot'' makes the character [[BigBad Kurt Barlow]] look like Orlok, although in Creator/StephenKing's [[Literature/SalemsLot original novel]] he's depicted more like the ClassicalMovieVampire.
* The look of a horror character from a running sketch on ''Series/TheFastShow'' was based on Orlok; he would emerge out of the night to awaken a young woman in black and white, but would answer her scream only with non sequiturish betting tips.
* ''Series/TheLeagueOfGentlemen'' contained a rare female example. Well, the character was female. But was played by a male actor. In fact, it was Mark Gatiss.
* While Sylar from ''Series/{{Heroes}}'' certainly doesn't resemble Orlok himself, ''Nosferatu'' was an early inspiration for the character. While most of the original idea was changed, it is held over in his depiction in the prophetic paintings from first season. This is most obvious in Sylar's own rendition of himself posing as Nathan in that season's BadFuture, which featured long, taloned fingers. Also, he stole Orlok's coat.
* One episode of ''Series/TheXFiles'' involved a brain-eating mutant with pale skin, jet-black eyes, and no ears.
* Perhaps Uncle Fester of ''Series/TheAddamsFamily'', although he's a much cuter version.
* Mr Gryle the [[OurBansheesAreLouder banshee]] in the TV adaptation of ''Discworld/GoingPostal''.
* Not an actual vampire, but Lx-3, the failed Lex clone in ''Series/{{Smallville}}'''s tenth season premiere, "Lazarus" definitely has this going for him. Between the BaldOfEvil, PointyEars, protruding front teeth, and grey, wrinkled skin he could easily pass for one of Orlok's relatives.
* The Space Vampire episode of ''Series/BuckRogersInTheTwentyFifthCentury'' featured a vampire that was very Orlok in appearance with the exception of his huge eyebrows.
* The ''Series/DoctorWho'' episode "The God Complex" introduces a cowardly, rodent-like [[RubberForeheadAliens Rubber Forehead Alien]] who looks like this. Ironically his planet is the most invaded in the Galaxy, the people happily accepting invaders.
* The older vampires on ''Series/TheStrain'' gradually take on this appearance, with the variation that their noses seem to rot right away. Played straighter, however, with the {{dhampir}} Mr. Quinlan. In [[Literature/TheStrain the books]], the Nosferatu look was kind of implied, but a little less overt.
* Murciélagos from ''Series/{{Grimm}}'' are a vampire-like kind of Wesen with bat-like traits that look a lot like Orlok.
* They weren't vampires (though they did like to eat human eyeballs), but the Kromaggs from ''Series/{{Sliders}}'' tick a lot of these boxes, especially after their redesign in the later seasons.


[[folder:Music Videos]]
* The vampires in the video for Music/TheyMightBeGiants' "Damn Good Times".
* PlayedForLaughs with the "vampire" in the video for [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HZkmvk5_LWY La Floripondio's "Zunga de cuero."]]

[[folder:Tabletop Games]]
* Many of the Nosferatu in game art take on this appearance in ''TabletopGame/VampireTheMasquerade'', but it can differ quite a bit from the Orlokian norm, as long as it's hideous. This is likely intentional, since the clan has the same name as the movie Orlok came from and has abilities similar to his.
** The version of the Nosferatu in ''TabletopGame/VampireTheRequiem'' can take on many forms foul and fair, but regardless of appearance always has an [[UncannyValley unsettling aura]] that makes social interaction difficult.
* The Necrarch bloodline in ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer}} Fantasy Battle''.
** The Strigoi even more so - giant mutated bloodsuckers that are barely human. By way of comparison, Necrarch vampires often resemble rotting corpses.
* The Basic ''TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons'' sourcebook ''[=GAZ3=] The Principalities of Glantri'' had the vampire-like nosferatu monsters (inspired by ''Nosferatu''), whose illustration looked like this.
** The text didn't mention them looking weird or standing out in a crowd, however. Later appearances by Mystaran nosferatu show them passing for human, so it's probably artistic license.
** D&D also has the Keepers, which are basically an {{Expy}} of the Strangers from ''Film/DarkCity''.
* The D&D third edition ''TabletopGame/{{Ravenloft}}'' books introduced the Vrykolakas, a subtype of vampires that look like Orlok. They are specifically described as "night scavengers and plague-carriers" to play up Orlok's plague rat aspects. One key difference is that instead of fangs they have a long, barbed tongue.
* In ''TabletopGame/{{Pathfinder}}'', Nosferatu are [[OurVampiresAreDifferent one of several types of vampire]] in the game setting; and yes, they look like the gentleman pictured at the top of this page. They even have different abilities than the common-or-garden vampire, all of which are taken from the original film, such as telepathy, telekinesis, and the ability to turn into a swarm of rats, but just like Orlock, they can't create new vampires by drinking blood.
* The ''TabletopGame/{{Deadlands}}'' TTRPG has the Nosferatu as a subspecies of vampires. They look like Orlok. And ride macabre trains when raiding for victims.
* Some of the races of ''TabletopGame/{{Talislanta}}'' look a bit like this, such as the Na-Ku cannibals, Marukans, and Nagra. Even the Kang might fit, if Max Schreck had gotten really ripped at the gym and suffered a bad sunburn.
* Vampires in ''TableTopGame/MagicTheGathering'' vary heavily depending on the set and artist. Some of the earlier ones like [[http://gatherer.wizards.com/Pages/Card/Details.aspx?multiverseid=83 Sengir Vampire]] head in this direction.
* In ''TabletopGame/{{Shadowrun}}'' Ghouls and Nosferatu both have this look. They're both humans (or other metahumans) that have mutated as the result of viral exposure; they've lost their hair, grown fangs, have pointed ears, claws, and are generally pretty hideous.

* [[http://www.oafe.net/yo/myle1_carp.php Carpathias]] in the Four Horsemen's ''MythicLegions'' line starts at "Orlok" and goes in a more bat-like direction.

[[folder:Video Games]]
* ''Franchise/{{Castlevania}}'':
** Two examples: Olrox from ''VideoGame/CastlevaniaSymphonyOfTheNight'' (his name is a giveaway) and Brauner from ''VideoGame/CastlevaniaPortraitOfRuin''. It should be noted that while Brauner physically resembles Orlok, he dresses like the later, classier versions, making him a weird hybrid of the two designs.
** In a more direct ShoutOut, Orlok himself is seen in the background of a stage in ''VideoGame/CastlevaniaChronicles'', frozen in a block of ice for some reason.
* The Council's Vampyri in ''VideoGame/CityOfHeroes'' look like this, although they are not actual vampires. They are the result of a super-soldier program inherited from [[ThoseWackyNazis the 5th Column]], which they overthrew. The highest-ranking of them is actually named Nosferatu.
* Igor of the ''VideoGame/{{Persona}}'' series; although it should be noted that [[DarkIsNotEvil/VideoGames he is an ally character.]]
* Baraka from ''Franchise/MortalKombat'' was visually based on an Orlok mask. The costume used for his first appearance in ''VideoGame/MortalKombatII'' was, in fact, an Orlok mask with silver-painted false fingernails added for his teeth.
* ''VideoGame/ChronoTrigger'': Though Magus is often drawn as a PrettyBoy in FanArt, and his sprite could be mistaken for one, his character portrait is basically Orlok with long, blue-white hair and red eyes. The redrawn art for later releases made his face more conventionally attractive, however.
* Medeus from ''[[VideoGame/FireEmblemAkaneia Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon]]'' fits this despite being a dragon instead of a vampire. He's got the bald head, clawed hands, fangs, and batlike ears. All of these traits make him a dead ringer for the Count.
* These appear as (low level) monsters in ''VideoGame/TheWitcher'' alongside more traditional Vampires.
* The Vampire creatures in ''VideoGame/DungeonKeeper'' are like this.
* Vorcha in ''VideoGame/MassEffect2''.
* Vampires from the ''VideoGame/LegacyOfKain'' series go through a progression of appearance as they age; they start out fairly human-looking, develop into a more elven/bishonen form with talon-like nails, further evolve to gain more bestial traits like three-clawed hands and feet, and the really ancient ones like Kain and Vorador end up with a far more monstrous look that features pointed, bat-like ears (the shape seems to vary) and mottled skin. The games also show vampires evolving out of humanoid form entirely, given enough time and the right circumstances.
** There's a much more direct Orlok homage in ''Blood Omen 2''. Marcus, one of the bosses, dresses in a voluminous black overcoat and has the requisite pale complexion, bald head, angular features, and spindly fingers.
* Ordinary Vampires in ''VideoGame/RuneScape'' look like this. The more [[NighInvulnerability powerful]] and civilized [[PhantasySpelling Vampyres]], however, are more human-looking. (Sans the Vyrewatch, who are [[OurVampiresAreDifferent completely different.]])
* The Vampire units (as well as many of the Heroes) of Necropolis city in ''VideoGame/HeroesOfMightAndMagic III''. Especially notable, since ''HOMM II'' and ''IV'' vampires are {{Classical Movie Vampire}}s with some minor Orlok-ish traits like gray skin, and ''HOMM V'' and ''VI'' vampires look like undead nobles in battle garb.
** The playable and NPC vampires in ''VideoGame/MightAndMagic VIII'' aren't quite close enough to fit (they've got the pointy ears, but their other inhuman traits, like their gray skin and red eyes, aren't on the Orlok list). The hostile vampires, on the other hand, add in baldness, longer fangs that seem to be closer to the front teeth and fingers that are longer enough that it is noticeable when they slash at you with them (they also have bat-like wings along their arms).
* Lord Erebus from ''VideoGame/{{Demigod}}''.
* Dracula himself in ''VideoGame/BookwormAdventures'', oddly enough. Like Brauner, he was much more sharply dressed than Orlok.
* ''VideoGame/WarCraft'':
** Though they are demons instead of vampires, the Nathrezim Dreadlords look much like demonic versions of Orlok and possess several typical vampire abilities such as the ability to control bats, hypnotize victims to sleep, and occasionally life-draining powers.
** While the more standard-variety vampires in ''VideoGame/WorldOfWarcraft'', the [[OurElvesAreBetter undead blood elves]] known as the Darkfallen, are not monstrous enough to fit this trope, their original concept art was heavily based on Orlok and indeed titled "High Elf Nosferatu".
** Wretched elves (blood elves who couldn't control their [[AddictiveMagic magic addiction]]), might not be undead, but they look the part. They have pale grey skin, hunched backs, bald or balding heads, long fingernails, and have the long pointy ears of other elves. Notably, they share the same basic skeleton and animations with the playable Undead.
* Markus from ''[[VideoGame/LastHalfOfDarkness Beyond the Spirit's Eye]]'' Looks Like Orlok, but with ''shark'' teeth rather than rat-like incisors.
* ''Franchise/TheElderScrolls''
** The series' vampires tend to become increasingly more monstrous in appearance the longer they go without feeding[[note]]from ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIVOblivion Oblivion]]'' onward, as the peculiarity of the dominant strain in Cyrodiil -- [[VampireVarietyPack other strains]], like the ones in ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIIIMorrowind Morrowind]]'' and ''[[TheElderScrollsIIDaggerfall Daggerfall]]'', remained monstrous even if they had just fed. ''Skyrim'' made it apply to a strain previously indicated to have another quirk.[[/note]], with their faces becoming gaunt and weathered. Vampires of Elven origin, with their already slim builds and pointy ears, are particularly prone to looking like Orlok. The trope is played most straight with the Volkihar Clan in the ''Dawnguard'' DLC of ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim Skyrim]]'', who have the power to [[SuperMode transform]] at will into a [[http://elderscrolls.wikia.com/wiki/File:VampireLord.png Vampire Lord]], with grotesque features, pale skin, pointed ears, deadly claws and a partially bald head. Unlike Orlok, Vampire Lords wear loincloths (although Lord Harkon also wears a cloak with a high collar) and have impressive physical builds, skeletal wings and claw-like feet.
** Scamps are the [[TheGoomba weakest]] and [[FunSize smallest]] known form of [[OurDemonsAreDifferent lesser Daedra]], and they check every box for looking like Orlok save for the hooked nose (Scamps have nostril slits instead) and the trenchcoat (Scamps don't wear clothing).
* ''VideoGame/NosferatuTheWrathOfMalachi'': Roughly half the Greater Vampires have this appearance, as does the Count.
* The Higher Vampires seen in ''Blood & Wine'' expansion of ''VideoGame/TheWitcher3WildHunt'' bear varying degrees of resemblance to this trope when they put their GameFace on. Dettlaff even has the iconic greatcoat, although his facial features are more wolf- than ratlike, while Regis gets the iconic sharp incisors-look. And then there's the Unseen Elder who doesn't even try to pass for a human, although his face isn't quite as monstrously deformed as a full-on GameFace.
* ''VideoGame/TheSims4'': The ''Vampires'' gamplay pack re-introduces the Vampire life state from previous Sims games and comes with the premade neighbourhood of Forgotten Hollow, whose most prominent resident, Vladislaus Straud, looks almost exactly like Schreck's portrayal of Count Orlok in his Dark Form.

[[folder:Web Comics]]
* Imp of ''Webcomic/SchoolBites'' is said to be a "Nosferatu prince". However, he's actually [[GenericCuteness generically cute.]]
* Camille, the main vampire character of ''Webcomic/BloodyUrban'' is essentially the CuteMonsterGirl version of Orlok- she has sunken in eyes, pronounced fangs on both her front teeth and canines, and large, bat-like ears.
* Vampires in ''Webcomic/TruLifeAdventures'' start out looking like themselves, but grow to resemble Orlok as they lose their humanity.
* In ''Webcomic/{{Shadowgirls}}'', a very Orlok-looking member of [[NebulousEvilOrganisation EoD]] was sent to eliminate a hospitalized cop. It 's a bit unclear if he was a vampire or something else, although the almost certainly wasn't human.
* Although Count Chocula blended Dracula and Orlok as a cereal mascot, in ''Webcomic/BreakfastOfTheGods'', Brian Sanderson subtly played up the Orlokian aspects more. While he kept the elegant clothes and dark widow's peak, he's far more ratlike and sinister: his face is more pointed, his fangs are longer and more wedge-shaped, and his hands look more like the paws of a rat with long thin fingers and prominent knuckles.

* Count [=LeShoc=] of ''WebVideo/TransylvaniaTelevision'' is based on this type of vampire.
* Zellie T of ''WebVideo/ASCZsHorrorshow'' compares [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rVtkMmpb38Q this video]] of El Chupacabra to Count Orlok.
* The creatures guarding the statue in the aquarium warehouse in ''WebVIdeo/TheOutCrowd look like this.

[[folder:Western Animation]]
* ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'': Mr. Burns looks like Orlok even when he's ''not'' a vampire. Especially when he wriggles his fingers...
** In "[[Recap/TheSimpsonsS5E5TreehouseOfHorrorIV Treehouse of Horror IV]]" Mr. Burns is Dracula, and a few of his underlings look very Orlokian. Burns himself is primarily a parody of Creator/GaryOldman's portrayal of Dracula in [[Film/BramStokersDracula the Coppola movie]], but he does look a little Orlokian, too.
* Botticelli, the leader of the rats in ''WesternAnimation/TheTaleOfDespereaux'', looks like a furry version of Orlok.
* At the end of the Graveyard Shift episode of ''WesternAnimation/SpongeBobSquarePants'', the lights start to flicker, and thinking that it's the Hash Slinging Slasher's doing, everyone looks over and is relieved to find that it was only that silly Nosferatu!
* ''WesternAnimation/TheModifyers'': Baron Vain can be considered a caricature of Orlok, given the similarities in appearance (bald, blueskinned, etc.), complete with having a rat for a henchman --named "Rat". However, [[BigBadWannabe Vain was hardly menacing]], nor did he seem to be a vampire.
* In the animated series ''WesternAnimation/SchoolForVampires'' the vampire kids' main teacher is based on Orlok's appearance. Somewhat subverted in that we see, through flashbacks, that he once had a long, flowing mane of blonde hair.
* In episode 6 of ''WesternAnimation/UglyAmericans'', Blake is a blatant {{Expy}} of Edward from ''Literature/{{Twilight}}'', while Blake's father was obviously modeled after Orlok.
* ''WesternAnimation/MightyMax'' gives us Skullmaster, an ancient warrior-sorcerer with chalk-white skin, fangs, claws, and pointy ears (who's also ''very'' buff). His menacing voice was provided by Creator/TimCurry.
* In ''WesternAnimation/TheAvengersEarthsMightiestHeroes'', The Wasp watches a horror movie featuring a very Orlokian-looking vampire.
* Dr. Doofenshmirtz from ''WesternAnimation/PhineasAndFerb'' looks a lot like this (hunchback, long fingers, pointy nose), except he has hair.
* The Grand Inquisitor from ''WesternAnimation/StarWarsRebels'' fits this greatly. He's bald, has bone white skin, sharp teeth, and golden Sith eyes. With tattoos for extra evilness. Makes sense since he is a Pau'an, the Orlok-looking species mentioned above in Star Wars Film entry, but unlike most of them, he's as evil as he looks.
* The five humanoid figures in ''WesternAnimation/{{Balance}}'' are bald, have whitish-gray skin and huge blank black eyes, and articulated skeleton fingers. And they were long trenchcoats.
