It seems like more than 20% of the examples on this page are really Our Vampires Are Different, possibly as many as 50% depending in your approach to the trope. If a vampire makes fun of the notion of vampires being allergic to garlic (for example) does that really count? Shouldn't it have to be one work specifically making fun of another work for playing the garlic thing straight?

Removed several bits of excessively biased flame bait here. All related to examples that bash Twilight, including the page pic. Said bait was from somebody being ridiculously defensive about the series. User was pikmintaro according to edit history.

Bashing a story involving vampires is exactly what this trope is about. And Twilight "vampires" are significantly different from many other depictions of vampires. But the bashing should be by another work, not by a troper.

"Bela Lugosi's dead, and so am I. But what's left of Bela is rotting in a pine coffin somewhere, while I have the opportunity to sit here on the balcony, enjoy my drink, and look at you. Correct me if I am presumptuous, but I suspect I have the better end of the deal."
— Opening to Vampire: The Masquerade sourcebook

Bela Lugosi is not a vampire he was an actor. It sounds to me he's referring to the actor himself being dead, not Dracula, though I have no context on this. Now that I think about it I don't know what the hell he's going on about, why bring up someone who isn't even... I'm gonna take a break.
