* In Brian Lumley's ''Literature/{{Necroscope}}'' series, the vampires are all savage and vicious, even to each other. More to the point, due to the fact that they can reshape their bodies, their feeding habits range from using oversized jaws to tear open human torsos, to forming tentacular siphons and draining their victims dry. And it gets worse when the vampire in question has the power of Necrmouthful

-->''That was the last thing she thought before Cade ripped out her throat. The writers who described a vampire's bite as [[KissOfTheVampire two neat puncture wounds in the neck]] were either [[BloodlessCarnage being polite]] or [[FailedASpotCheck or had never really looked their own teeth]]. A vampire, when he bites, hyperextends his canines, the third tooth on each side from the centre. They are necessary for any carnivore, designed by evolution for the express purpose of rending flesh. Canines are used for only one thing, even by humans. Canines tear. [[spoiler: Megan Roark's]] head was attached to her body only by her broken neck and some gristle.

* ''Series/DeadliestWarrior'' used a ''freakin' alligator'' as the basis for a vampire's bite in "Vampires vs. Zombies". When the resulting pressure reading was placed into a pneumatic jaw, the "vampire fangs" bit through a "zombie skull", and ''reached the center of the brain''. By comparison, very few non-gunpowder weapons tested on the show have been able to penetrate that deeply into the skull. [[spoiler: The bite ultimately counted for less than 5 percent of the vampire's kills; based on the data, the vampires simply chose to strike the zombies down instead of biting them.]]

* Played for dark laughs in a Creator/JhonenVasquez story: A young VampireVannabe, Eric, desperately wants to be a vampire for real and [[BeCarefulWhatYouWishFor gets his wish]]-- only to end up with a case of LooksLikeOrlock turned UpToEleven, with an enormous bald head and fangs that resemble walrus tusks. He feeds by plunging one of these tusks straight into the top of the skull of his victim, not unlike puncturing a juice can with an old-style can opener. It probably kills the victim outright and horrifies Eric too, especially since he was imagining something more pleasant (oddly enough, the bite that turns him is a classic KissOfTheVampire).

** The Lamia bloodline in ''Vampire: the Dark Ages'', an offshoot of the Cappadocians, would harm whoever they fed from. When Augustus Giovanni wiped out their parent clan, he also personally handled the destruction of the Lamia - it's believed that the Giovanni fall under this trope as either a curse from the Lamia bloodline or as an unintended result from the diablerie of the bloodline.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Videogame/DwarfFortress:'' While the bites themselves are discreet enough to not wake people up or gain much suspicion, the amounts of blood drained in an instant are definitely not pretty. Most creatures will die when bitten by another of equal species and size, and those that survive will be faint for several days and need a lot of rest.


* {{Alucard}} of ''Manga/{{Hellsing}}'' tends to not bother with subtlety ever. Unless maybe it'll make the MindScrew ''even worse''. He's been told that "It's not good to play with your food," but evidently it didn't take (also, he ate the person who said that). He won't sink two delicate fangs into your neck; he'll open his huge toothy maw, latch onto your throat, lifting you off the ground, savage flesh and sinew like a dog, and devour your broken body. Probably after he's done crushing you in battle, and almost definitely while laughing. He can also absorb blood that's anywhere nearby - [[spoiler:in the manga, he calls ''rivers'' of spilt blood to him through the streets of a war-scarred London; and in the anime, he revives himself using the blood spilt in the tower of London]]. Feeding or no, he'll make a mess of you because it's ''fun''.

Added DiffLines:

* In ''Film/LifeBlood'', vampire feeding consists of literally biting a chunk out of the victim's neck and then sucking the blood out of the wound.

Added DiffLines:

* ''VideoGame/TheSims4 Vampires'' game pack: Any Sim who [[VoluntaryVampireVictim offers their wrist for a vampire to drink from]] will eventually grimace, yell in pain and shove the vampire off. Victims of nonconsensual biting are too stunned to react. Regardless of whether the biting was consensual or not, the drained sim will get an uncomfortable moodlet.
