* ZigZagged in ''VideoGame/{{Runescape}}'' which has a wide variation of vampire wealth, from feral and low class vampires to [[ClassicalMovieVampire Count Draynor]] all the way up to [[VampireMonarch Lord Draken]] and his family.



* Zig zagged in ''Webcomic/TheNightBelongsToUs'' where some vampires, such as crime lord Gustav von Heiden, are rich beyond measure, while others are less well off. The most notable nigh-inversion is the comic's deuteragonist, Ada Argyle, who dresses like a slob and lives in a run-down old trailer park.

* ''Literature/{{Twilight}}'': The Cullen family own their own island off the [[YouFailGeographyForever west coast of Brazil]], and can apparently afford to purchase or build any number of honeymoon cottages, luxury cars, and gemstones. One of the vampires explicitly mentions that it's due to Alice's ability to read the future and the relevant impact it has on the stock market. Before Bella ever meets Edward, the first thing she notices is the incredibly expensive cars that they drive parked in the school parking lot.
