1'''Basic Trope''': Being bitten by a vampire is violent, messy, and painful.
2* '''Straight''': Bob bites Alice, causing her to scream in pain, and leaving large, unsightly punctures on her neck.
3* '''Exaggerated''': Bob tears Alice's throat out with his teeth, causing a horrific spray of blood, killing Alice in the process.
4* '''Downplayed''': Alice is bitten by Bob and whimpers and squirms in pain.
5* '''Justified''':
6** Vampires' teeth are sharp, but far from the needle-like fangs of other incarnations of the legend. Tearing through the victim's flesh is a necessary step to get the blood flowing.
7** The vampires in the setting are zomblie-like, animalistic beasts with no regards to how hard they bite.
8* '''Inverted''': KissOfTheVampire
9* '''Subverted''': Alice cries out in fright as Bob bites down, but quickly settles down after realizing there's little actual pain.
10* '''Double Subverted''': Until Bob abruptly tears her throat apart.
11* '''Parodied''':
12** Other vampires watching Bob feed are put off by how much of a messy eater he is.
13** Vampire bites are basically the same as mosquito bites, just a lot bigger.
14* '''Zig Zagged''': Bob is capable of a gentler bite that only leaves small punctures, or a more savage attack that shreds his victim's neck.
15* '''Averted''': Bob is an energy vampire, who's feeding leaves Alice drained, but doesn't leave any visible wounds.
16* '''Enforced''': "To make the vampires scarier, we should make the viciousness of the bite more gratuitous."
17* '''Lampshaded''': "Bob, you're actually just wasting a lot of blood. Look, it's getting everywhere."
18* '''Invoked''': Bob is capable of delivering KissOfTheVampire, but he wants Alice to feel pain, so he deliberately tears her neck open as he bites.
19* '''Exploited''': Bob kills Alice, a vampire hunter, with a violent bite in order to dissuade other hunters from pursuing him.
20* '''Defied''': Bob bites down as gently as he can, trying to spare Alice severe injury.
21* '''Discussed''': "It doesn't look like two little puncture wounds. It looks like she was a attacked by a wild animal."
22* '''Conversed''': "Why does Bob always feed like that? He's wasting so much blood" "'Cause it's 'scary'."
23* '''Implied''': Bob looms over Alice, and moves in for a bite. The camera cuts to outside the house, and we hear Alice screaming in pain.
24* '''Deconstructed''': Bob wants to be a FriendlyNeighbourhoodVampire, but the only way he can survive is by violently attacking people. This makes him hated and feared by everyone, and he sees himself as a monster.
25* '''Reconstructed''': However, he turns to crime-fighting, enabling to feed on criminals, rather than the innocent. This lets him strike fear into evil-doers, and shows innocent people that he's a lesser evil.
