* Dhampire's make up a small percentage of the population of Hyperion in ''LightNovel/DaybreakOnHyperion'', descended from the original vampire lords. Most of their powers are sealed from a young age and they don't need to drink blood, but doing so does allow them to maintain a youthful appearance. However they don't have the same regenerative powers of their vampire ancestors so they have to be selective about who they drink blood from or risk contracting blood borne diseases.

* ''Demon in My View'': [[spoiler: Jessica's mother became a vampire while pregnant, leaving the unborn Jessica in suspension for several years. After a witch converts her mother back into a human, Jessica is born looking like the daughter of the vampire sire and not her natural human parents. Because of this (and the strength of her mother's sire)]] Jessica experiences dreams about vampires, which she then writes into novels. [[spoiler: Unfortunately when the characters in her novels turn out to be real, the connection turns deadly and Jessica is eventually attacked and later becomes a fully fledged vampire]]

* In ''WesternAnimation/HotelTransylvania2,'' vampire Mavis and human Johnny have a son named Dennis; apparently, he'll either be a vampire or a human, and it'll take a few years to find out which. The main arc is that his grandfather, Dracula, desperately wants him to be a vampire. [[spoiler:He is, which arguably results in a BrokenAesop]].

* Alucard in ''WesternAnimation/{{Castlevania|2017}}'' is the son of Dracula and Lisa just like in the [[Franchise/{{Castlevania}} original games]]. However, he is depicted as ''superior'' to most of his kind, being stronger and '''[[SuperSpeed much]]''' faster than other vampires, and keeping their typical powers like shape-shifting and telekinesis. He is also immune to sunlight. He has more human-like traits such as crying normal tears instead of [[TearsOfBlood blood]] and lacking long claws and {{pointy ears}}. Power-wise, Alucard significantly falls behind his father, but that is no small feat considering that Alucard can kill most normal vampires in combat effortlessly. Though with that said, in the FinalBattle two of Dracula's Vampires Generals could give Alucard trouble e.g Chō who could NoSell Alucard's speed with her [[SuperSmoke smoke powers]], and Dragoslav was [[SuperStrength strong enough]] to punch Alucard out of [[PowerFloats the air]]. Without Trevor and Sypha backing him up, Alucard might've been overwhelmed. Also Trevor, a "[[CharlesAtlasSuperpower normal]]" human, could still match Alucard in a sword fight (even though Alucard was likely holding back against Trevor). Alucard still leans more towards his human side than his vampire side.

** "D" is a vampire hunter and the main character.

* ''ComicBook/{{Blade}}'': The main character Blade is dhampyr. His mother was ''turned into'' a vampire while Blade was ''in utero'' -- not quite the usual situation, and seems to have given Blade most of the good vampire bits (increased strength and speed, heightened senses, good dark vision) without most of the bad bits (he's not vulnerable to sunlight, but does get cravings for blood). Later writers [[CanonImmigrant changed the definition]] of what the word means in the Marvel Universe to make him closer to the movie character.

* In ''ComicStrip/{{Candorville}}'', these can't normally appear, but advanced fertilization technology has created at least one of them, [[spoiler:in accordance with an EitherOrProphecy that may allow his mother to TakeOverTheWorld. The definite dhampyr, Saxon, is a ProperlyParanoid KnifeNut, but also a FriendlyNeighborhoodVampire, and is trying to protect the main character. The other is still an infant, and it's uncertain how he will develop (or, for that matter, whether he's really a dhampyr or just an abducted human infant.) The strip has been vague on the differences between a dhampyr and a vampire, but there definitely are some--Saxon's GameFace has MilkyWhiteEyes instead of the [[RedEyesTakeWarning red ones]] found on true vampires, and his fangs are noticeably smaller.]]

It also confirms that you can have [[spoiler:quarter-vampires, or quarter-humans, which have one- or three-quarters vampires' power and baggage]], and that female half-vampires are fertile. Yet unknown whether a female half-vampire can have a child with an activated shape shifter.

He is immune to all the vampiric weaknesses, but still ages. He has super strength. His tag line is ''All the strengths, none of the weaknesses'', despite that fact he doesn't ''have'' all the strengths, and is constantly fighting his blood addiction.

*** 4th Edition later brought out the Vryloka. Considered "living vampires", they share some of the benefits (increased lifespan and speed/dexterity), and can ''choose'' whether to count as "human" or "undead" for each specific effect against them, but none of the weaknesses. They also gain an ability that gives them a quick boost once an encounter. They can also take "utility" powers at later levels, which are everything from "drink the blood of a slain enemy once a day to not have to eat or drink", to shapeshifting into a wolf or a bat, to "raise a dead ally back to life by feeding it your blood, and if they're human they can become Vryloka". They're still not considered full vampires, though; that's a ''class'' instead of a race, and just so happen to have primary/secondary stats in line with the Vryloka's racial bonuses, and were introduced in the same book...
** ''TabletopGame/{{Ravenloft}}'' has them under the name dhampir, but ''Ravenloft'' also averts the Mom-bitten-while-pregnant variant, as the products of such prenatal infection grow up to be "vampyres" -- ''living'' blood-drinking monstrous humanoids, with mind-controlling saliva -- rather than dhampirs. The dark lord of Forlorn, Tristan [=ApBlanc=], is such a vampyre.

The reason why this word is so different from "vampire" is because its etymology is Albanian. Some of the words for this trope in the languages "vampire" is derived from are ''vampirič'' (вампирич), ''vampirovič'' (вампирович), and ''vampirdžiâ'' (вампирджия).

* In ''Fanfic/BloodTies'', dhampirs are considered half-vampires. They're humans who died after being infected by vampire blood. They're functionally immortal and have stronger senses than humans. Unlike true vampires, they burn in sunlight and they can be killed. Most dhampirs live as vampire hunters who survive on animal blood. Those who gain a taste for human blood are hunted down by others. Noa is a dhampir and she turns Edward into one to save his life after Envy tries to kill him.
