  • 8-Bit Theater took the modern Goth-Vampire trope to its (patho)logical extreme—Vilbert Von Vampire is an angst-ridden teen Goth who writes aching poetry and enjoys live-action role-playing. He appeared to show no weakness to the sun, and the group's attempts to violently murder him with knives (as per their usual idiom) are foiled when it is shown that he has a resistance to such weapons—leading the group to drive an entire armoire through his heart. Of course, this only serves to anger his Father, the fiend of Earth, Lich. (His mother appears to be a fairly normal human woman—well, normal for the 8-Bit universe, anyway.)

  • In The Adventures of Dr. McNinja, the Doctor used to be a Vampire Hunter when he was young and study which rumoured properties of vampires were real. In the end, though, the existence of non-human vampires including a vampire gorilla seems to be the only non-conventional vampire "physical" trait. The vampires in this comic are so close to the allegedly standard vampire lore that it's practically an inversion of the trope. Of course, that doesn't stop the comic's crazy creativity. Sebastian's coven secretly runs The Red Cross, while behind the scenes they're Anne Rice-style goth vampires cranked Up to Eleven. As for Dracula, he's pretty much identical to Bela Lugosi's version of the Count, only living on a Moon Base. With a Moon Laser. And since Holy Burns Evil, a vampire can be made to explode by throwing the Pope at them.

  • The vampires in the Boys' Love webcomic Arcana differ in the fact that if they drink Harpy blood they will die. Also, it seems that when changed into a vampire, the victim will acquire some of its attackers traits. In Vincent's case, he ends up ultimately raping and doing physical harm to his human lover. Finally, some of the vampires seem to harbor feelings of guilt and self-hate over their conditions (beliving they're monsters/unworthy of love). Other then that, the vampires in this story host the traditional traits (sunlight intolerance, bloodlust, etc.)
  • Axe Cop has the unique "sun vampires" (which can fly to the sun), including a hideously deformed, batlike "half-vampire man, half-vampire baby", as well as "vampire wizard ninja brothers from the moon."
  • Liz from Blip. In addition to the usual (blood-sucking, weakness to sunlight, Living Shadow and Super Smoke powers) she has Rubber Man powers, the ability to hover, and Laser-Guided Amnesia-inducing breath.

  • Brock of the Undead mostly chronicles the title character sensation of vampirism after being turned. Vampires in this one can float without bat wings, gain pointy ears when showcasing their monstrous side, sometimes stuck in socks since they tend to Wall Crawl and shoes leave footprints, partially transform parts of their body into bat form and can be nice or evil depending on the master.
  • In Charby the Vampirate there are "elites", a sub-race of vampires who are unkillable in any of the conventional ways (or unconventional) though they still hate garlic and have a compulsion to count. There are also more traditional vampires that can be killed by the sun and being staked through the heart, or having significant damage done to their heads.
  • There are three different types of vampire in Clan of the Cats, each stemming more or less independently from a single "parent" (Lilith, Dracula and Kern), none of which are quite the same as the legends.
  • In Daniel, the titular character is the one and only vampire of the story. Word of God says he is a mix of more classic and mythological vampires with some new concepts. A couple of examples are he drinks blood to feel life rather than to satisfy hunger, and he also has an extreme fear of his own reflection.
  • The title character of Digger is attacked by vampiric squash. Now that really is "different". Strangely enough, they were based on an actual legend from the Balkans, which claims that if vegetables are left in the ground too long they turn vampiric.
  • Tristram's species in Earthsong. Green skinned, among other things. On his planet there were two species—his vampire-like species, and a more human-like species that were treated like livestock, with the males used as beasts of burden and the females used to drink blood from. Tristram was part of a group that rebelled against the idea of drinking blood from the other race and committed the serious taboo of feeding upon wild animals, but at one point he was locked in a room with a girl and purposefully starved by his fellow vampires until he couldn't help but feed.
  • Transylvito in Erfworld is the kingdom of vampires, though they're generally just called Transylvitans when the matter comes up. They're noted for their distinctive appearances, including red eyes, gray skin, pointed ears and fangs. They all have a life drain special involving drinking the blood that Erfworlders barely seem to have in the first place and usually appear to have the flight special. Finally, despite being modeled after the mafia and looking a little "trashy" as Parson puts it, they could still be considered 'good guys' rather than monsters. Jillian and Vinny even have what amounts to a dhampyr son, though Erfworlders don't really have sexual reproduction.
  • Eternal Night's Heverics. These guys used to live alongside humans peacefully until rumors and lies spread about and the Heverics were banished, even killed! The survivors then created a portal to a new realm to live in peace. Then the Heverics began to oppose each other to the point of becoming separate sides: the Red Vampires who despise humanity and want to end the threat, and the Green Vampires who still have hope that they can find a way to be at peace with the humans once more.
  • In Freefall, Helix, Sam Starfall's robotic sidekick, tries to make an assessment of Florence, freaks out, and tries to get Sam's attention about what troubles him, but Sam is less afraid of their sentient wolf being a vampire than this panic waking her up in a bad mood. He quickly sets Helix straight and uses biometry to demonstrate that she's, obviously, quite alive.
    Helix: If I were a scientist out to prove global warming was man made, I could throw this one fact out as data scatter.
    Sam: Now, now. Let's not make this decision as if our funding depended on it.
  • Geist Panic has a vampire being a pathetic misfit. It seems vampirism is a horribly debilitating blood disease.
  • While no vampires have been seen yet in Girl Genius (outside of a single vampiric vampire hunter in one of the games) an ancient undead Hetrodyne vampire is evidently not a thing unheard of. There was also a vampire hunter in the circus who had heard that England was lousy with vampires, though it is unknown how accurate this information was.
  • In Homestuck, troll legend describes vampires known as "rainbow drinkers" who enjoy daylight and wear colorful clothes. Trolls themselves usually wear dark clothes and can't stand the sun. The name makes more sense when one considers the fact that trolls have their position in society determined by the color of their blood. Kanaya Maryam, as one of the exceedingly rare diurnal trolls, spends her days in her home surrounded by the (also diurnal) undead reading Paranormal Romance novels about rainbow drinkers.
    Look at this mess. All this blood and sunlight is stirring bright feelings within. You often fantasize about being a true rainbow drinker from your literature. It would be a life of darting between the shadows, of persecution and being misunderstood. And of ROMANCE. You would drink heavily from its multicolored well, and the hemospectrum would be your wine list preceding the great feast of passion.

    Surely it couldn't hurt. While no one is looking...

    • Later Kanaya comes back to life after being killed and effortlessly dispatches the three biggest internal threats to the troll players, killing the one that murdered her. Rainbow Drinkers don't sparkle, they glow, and they still have the incredible VAMPIRE SPEED from Problem Sleuth.
    • Foreshadowed by the Halloween Episode of Sweet Bro and Hella Jeff, from which a quote was used to accompany Kanaya's "death". are you next?
    • Act 6 introduces a minor character who is also a rainbow drinker and gives a few more details on them. All rainbow drinkers are from the jade blood caste (which explains their mutual like of sunlight), they can turn their Phosphor-Essence off, becoming a drinker acts as a 1-Up and they are technically alive so Revive Kills Zombie won't work on them.
  • IronGate: Miss. Addison Constance Loveworth is the only vampire so far seen in the series. She is far faster and stronger than any mortal, and also has a complex relationship with blessed objects, being both inspired and fearful of them.
  • Irritability parodied the concept with Scary Larry.
  • In Rasputin Catamite, Dima Satan belongs to the upir sub-species of vampire, which is completely immune to sunlight. He doesn't attack victims strictly for purposes of feeding. His rampages usually take place while he's in an altered mental state and the main motivation seems to be the sheer joy of killing. Fish temporarily slows down his blood lust. Breasts act as the equivalent of Kryptonite.
  • In Silver Bullet Nights, Jekkel is a Smoke and unlike traditional vampires, he can walk in sunlight and he feeds on the breath of the dying, not blood. Blood is just an aphrodisiac to Smokes and half-vampires - they drink it during sex. Smokes can also turn to smoke (duh!).
  • Triquetra Cats has three unrelated species grouped under the "vampire", each with different characteristics and weaknesses. One is basically a blood-drinking animal.
  • In Pandect, a vampire is one name for the soulless creature formed when a human and an Ace conceive a child. They are basically killing machines which can change form and kill with a bite to the throat, but other than that they do not have the stereotypical traits (and weaknesses) of classical vampires. As one character notes, humans gave them the "vampire" name, not Aces.
  • The vampires in Dan and Mab's Furry Adventures are different in that they are long extinct. As they were only one of many species that preyed on non-magical Beings, they'd often fall victim to stronger predators. They would also burst in to flames when in contact with sunlight, further dropping their numbers. As the last few remaining Vampires met to discuss how to avoid extinction, a dragon accidentally stepped on them.
  • In Last Res0rt, vampires are a subset of the Dead Inside/Djinn-si, a catch-all term for creatures who have altered their souls after birth, and are even sometimes referred to as "Life Djinn". Unlike other types of Dead Inside, vampires must be deliberately transformed and are capable of concealing their "condition", and are often thought of as unable to travel in space and limited strictly to the human species. Of course, both of these stereotypes are proven blatantly false by an alien marsuipal being transformed into a vampire. They also can recover from stakes (or bullets) to the heart, transform into zombie-like creatures when stressed, and often have some form of Psychic Powers (such as telepathy or reversing time).
  • El Goonish Shive:
    • Susan resorts to "vampire" to describe a monster she encountered. Other than the traits she describes, the monster didn't have any other vampiric qualities, instead being vulnerable to magic weaponry. It did have fangs: a mouth full of shark teeth.
      Sarah: A vampire?!
      Grace: Really?!
      Susan: No, not really, but it was a monster that used to be human, hypnotized young women and sucked blood out of their necks. It doesn't matter what I say. You two are going to hear "vampire".
    • The author has finally decided to just use the word "vampire" to describe these creatures, because the previous term (aberration) was a little unwieldy and everyone was calling them vampires anyway. He is also consciously avoiding using the trope of a "conflicted, good inside" vampire: all the creatures in the comic have been human-eating monsters, who revel in their status and chose it willingly as a form of Immortality Immorality.
    • To sum up, "vampires" in the comic really have little in common with traditional vampires: they are former humans, they are immortal (at least as long as they keep eating), and consume humans as their food, but that's it. They do not transform their victims into new vampires (the victims just die), there is nothing religious about them, they share none of the classic weaknesses, they are universally vulnerable to summoned or magical weapons, they can take numerous different forms, and they are created through a human performing transformative magic upon themselves in a bid for immortality.
  • Gore, from The Life Of Riley, was a housemate to the Bobs, and liked to watch the game while feeding. Later he Took a Level in Badass, and proceeded to run interference for an infiltration team while carrying paintball cannons so huge humans couldn't wield them, and wound up at the end of the story arc immune to sunlight thanks to the newfound power of his succubi ex-girlfriend. The last time we saw Gore, he was fast, strong, unkillable, and had moved his heart to prevent staking from working. His opponent was curious about where such a young vampire gained tricks that should have taken him a few thousand years to learn, whereupon Gore revealed his powers were taught to him by Lilith.
  • Thunderstruck actually ignores Rule 3: its vampires need blood (particularly when they have just been created), they spread like a virus, and they have all the traditional weaknesses. However, they are not badass, but pathetic, weak, coweled creatures that cannot cope with the modern world.
  • Vampirates is a cute webcomic featuring... vampiric pirates. It's set in a world where vampires seem to be relatively accepted and can survive off of fresh blood, bagged blood, or special drugs given by the government. Sunlight doesn't seem to affect them, and they can loose large quantities of blood but survive.
    • Actually the drugs don't sustain the vampires. They help suppress a vampire's hunger. See here.
  • The vampires of Sam & Fuzzy are very different from most depictions of vampires. 1) They are living beings who get born and die, not a species of The Undead. 2) Sunlight doesn't bother them. 3) Their bites turn people into werewolves, not more vampires. 4) Their hearts and lungs are found inside their heads, making a stake through the chest ineffective (their chests contain 17 appendixes). 5) They're very socially awkward and the traditional vampire stories come from the wide variety of mental illnesses and delusions they suffer from. Edwin, the most fleshed-out vampire and a member of the supporting cast, suffers from "Chronic Tragic Gothic Romanticism" (the most common illness) and believes Stalking Is Love. Despite being Made of Iron, they also don't appear to be particularly stronger than scrawny humans, making it quite easy to detain them.
  • Amaranthe from Not Quite Daily Comic prefers the term "person with defunctory impairment" and rationalizes some of the common vampire traits.
  • Vampire bats in Kevin & Kell, despite being living creatures like everyone else, are analogous to vampires in folklore: they are stigmatized, many of the vampire beliefs get dumped on them (such as the ones about garlic, shapeshifting, and mirrors), and are considered the ultimate scourge on society. This is why Desdemona Fuscus, Fenton's mom, kept it a secret: she didn't want her son to be shunned by society because he was half-vampire bat. This is also why she tried to speed up his wedding to Lindesfarne: as a geneticist student, she had the potential to find out he was and Desdemona was afraid she'd call off the wedding if she knew. While she didn't, once word got out they had numerous wedding guests cancel on them. After she saves the life of the town doctor by sucking out the fluid swelling at his injured spine, she slowly starts becoming more accepted in society, and now works as Kell's second-in-command at her company.
  • Vampires in A Loonatic's Tale are numerous and varied-many unique species actually run in family lines. Not all of them can "turn" their victims, but those that do typically transform them not into vampires like themselves, but into a vanilla religion-and-garlic-averse vampire (with the exception of the aquatic mermaid vampire, which turns its victims into a sea-dweller like itself). There are also catacomb vampires, which come about when a black cat jumps over a grave and are bloated corpses which are otherwise indistinguishable from their original living selves, and blood bag vampires, which should become catacomb vampires, but decomposition has set in too far when the cat comes along, forcing them to spend the first 13 years of their vampiric lives reconstituting into catacomb vampires.
  • Scandinavia and the World focuses on the personifications of national stereotypes. Word of God states: "Romanians have two stereotypes; vampires, and thieving gypsies. Therefore, Romania is a vampire who would rather steal your wallet than your blood. Yes, I'm aware this makes me a horrible person."
  • Eerie Cuties: Nina's preference for chocolate, rather than blood, makes her an oddity among vampires to say the least. With the only explanation given, being that she was born on Easter Sunday. It turns out that wasn't entirely the truth. In chapter 15, Nina's doll, Blair, explains that he purposely conditioned her that way so she'd never acquire a taste for blood, to prevent Queen Lamia from reincarnating. Except he'd been wrong about which of the Delacroix children it was to be: it was her older sister, Layla.
  • Lampshaded in School Bites when a newly turned Charlotte (a.k.a Cherri) meats Professor E who informs her that there are many different types of vampires. So far theres the very pale skinned vampires who have bat wings and pointed ears (like Cherri), regular human looking vampires (Professor E), the green skinned Nosferatu looking types (Imp), vampires with black angel wings (no seriously), fairy type vampires (though only one has been seen so far) and were-types (which so far have been cat girls).
  • The vampires in Orange Marmalade have been living in society (legally, everybody "knows" about them - racism is involved) and are watered down versions of the typical vampire, due to only drinking pig blood. They can go out in sunlight, they do have fangs (though these get filed down by most vampires), they have extra-fast healing abilities, they're sensitive to the cold and they aren't able to eat any food except pig (meaning Ma-ri has to throw her lunch up everyday at school).
  • The Kingfisher includes the concept of vampire families with different powers. In The Kingfisher each family is founded by a progenitor. This is a person who became a vampire naturally upon dying, which seems to happen mainly to insane criminals, persecuted and executed by a community. When a progenitor turns someone into a vampire, that victim gains some of the powers and quirks associated with the progenitor, though is considerably less powerful.
  • Shifters is a Webcomic with Vampires heavily integrated into the plot.
  • Vampires in Sluggy Freelance were long assumed by fans to divide into a number of groups called "circles" that each had their own kinds of powers. In the chapter fittingly called "The Circle", it's revealed that the "Lysinda Circle" that was first introduced was only one of the groups called circles that (had) existed among the type of vampire called "Vorpyr", so presumably the other types of vampire like "Vrykolakas" are not also "circles". Either way, there are different types of vampires with different powers.
    • Lampshaded in this strip; the vampires which Muffin the Vampire Baker fought were completely different from the Lysinda Circle vampires, which only made things confusing when Sam, a LC vamp, showed up in Hell Mouth.
    • The strip later introduced the Vrykolakas vampires, which are substantially different from the Lysinda Circle. Lysinda vampires can't enter houses without being invited, but Vrykolakas vampires can. A person drained to death by a Vrykolakas vampire becomes a new one and retains no independent will or shred of humanity, whereas Lysinda vampires can only be made via a special ritual, and they keep their individuality and can even betray their superiors if they choose. A Vrykolakas vampire can be turned to dust if staked through the heart, whereas a Lysinda vampire just shrivels up and stops moving, but immediately comes back to life if the stake is pulled out.
    • "The Circle" introduces a further type of vampire called Strakoistrat that withstand daylight and have magic powers.
    • Riff, being Jewish, can burn vampires with his Star of David. It's also suggested that a bottle of beer wielded by Torg would work similarly as a "holy symbol", but not proven.
  • What's New? with Phil and Dixie had an issue on vampires:
    For quite awhile now, people with chromatically challenged wardrobes have enjoyed emulating the noble mosquito, leech and hagfish.
  • In Moon Crest 24, Vampires are apparently a subdivision of demons rather than their own race. Also notable for not having the standard weakness to the sun, and actually wanting to be in its light.
  • Parodied in Mandatory Roller Coaster where members of different religious groups are depicted as Vampires.
  • In Serenity Rose vampires are animalistic and vampire blood is used as a drug. Vampires are kept sedated so their blood can be collected and sold off, and "The Curse" spreads more from unsafe drug use than vampire attacks.
  • Manly Guys Doing Manly Things lampshades the variety of vampires in fiction here.
  • Vampire Girl centers around vampire girl named Levana, who dislikes being a vampire so much, that she wishes desperately to be human/mortal. She refuses to drink blood, but because of her vampish lifestyles, she suffers from withdrawals much like a recovering alcoholic, and may sometimes be given a Bloody Mary, or Sangria, as placebos to take the edge off her urges. She has also been known to actually step outside into daylight, but completely bundled in large beach hats, ski masks, sunglasses, scarves, and long overcoats to shield her from sunlight (which causes her to sweat profusely).
  • The Order of the Stick:
    • Book five, "Blood Runs in the Family", introduces Malack, a Lizard Folk—or rather Snake People—vampire. He's been around for over 200 years, surpassing Xykon as "oldest character who isn't an actual god." He bites Durkon and uses a spell of his own making to accelerate the transformation, turning Durkon into his thrall. When Nale kills Malack shortly thereafter, Durkon is freed and rejoins the good guys—albeit not fully in control of himself. In fact, the vampires in the setting hold a dark secret, one rarely or never revealed to anyone that isn't one: the vampire character is in fact an entirely separate entity of the original, a servant of a dark god possessing the body and trapping the soul of the original inhabitant there for an eternity. Durkon himself is no exception.
    • Book six further expands on this: the first memories the vampire spirit absorbs are the lowest moments of the host's life; in Durkon's case, his vampire counterpart embodies all his suppressed resentment at the church of Thor for exiling him with no explanation.
  • Lily and Suzie, the two vampires encountered so far in Wapsi Square, don't fit the classical vampire stereotype as well as they fit that for ghouls: instead of sucking the blood of their victims, the vampire gals simply eat them, blood, flesh and all. They also work as FBI agents.
  • "Unicorns Changed My Life" focuses on Mullo Murony a man that became an unconventional vampire after eating a unicorn. Mullo stopped aging at his prime, he can't magically control animals or people, he has to eat/drink blood/meat from mythical creatures or he will suffer from classic vampiric ailments. "[1]"
  • In Deep Dive Daredevils, Dracula’s new minions are sort of a cross between vampires and the Creature from the Black Lagoon, and the Count himself has grown gills.
  • Bloody Urban. Camille's skin colour gets less pale when she feeds on human blood.
  • Becoming Blizzard having a cast full of anthropomorphic bears gives us Amadeus, who would be your run of the mill vampire, as he has no reflection, dislikes garlic and doesn't age, if it weren't for the fact that his bite doesn't turn you into a legion of the undead, it turns you gay. He's a gay vampire. And yes, he owns a gay night club.
  • In Schwarz Kreuz there are two ways of becoming one - virgin (a ritual involving suicide) and being turned by drinking a vampire's blood. They all stop aging, get Healing Factor, Super Strength, Cannot Cross Running Water or come in uninvited, have no reflections and allergy to garlic, but some vampirical powers (like turning into mist) are directly linked to bloodsucking. Vegetarian Vampires can't access them, at the same time losing the sunlight sensitivity and allergy to crosses.
  • Vampires in unTouchable used to be standard bloodsuckers but have evolved to Friendly Neighborhood Vampires to fit in modern society. They're no longer subject to most of the traditional weaknesses (strong sunlight can cause sneezing fits) and can absorb Life Energy by touch relatively harmlessly (unless they get too greedy for a single human.) They are The Beautiful Elite and not a little smug about it.
  • Zebra Girl: As explained by Zandra, there are many vampire types; the particular strain in her town don't sleep during the day, but are rather rendered desperately, maddeningly powerless and invisible while fully conscious. One of the reasons they're so eager to play ball with Zandra's rule is that drinking her blood is the only thing that allows them to sleep (or something similar, at least), something they hadn't been able to do since their vampiric conversion. They are also frozen in the state they were in when turned. One vampire, for example, was turned while she was in the middle of a drug high during Woodstock, nearly fifty years later and she has not come down from it.
  • Vampire Bites: To start sunlight doesn't instantly kill vampires. It just massively dampens their powers and weakens their strength, otherwise they can go out without worry. Likewise they CAN see their reflection in the day but it will disappear at night (though apparently camera phones are fine as Chloe is seen using one when heading out for the night). The powers are augmented by the moonlight including regeneration. Silver is a major determent to them as well, burning them if they make any contact with it. Also one that turns a vampire normally stays by their charge to train them in their powers and one that takes on "orphaned" vampires is considered pretty rare.
  • Monstra: Vampires can go in the daylight just fine with the trade off being they can't use their powers. Only newborns (newly turned vampires) are kept indoors for a day after turning so their powers can regulate in their bodies otherwise they could combust since most vampires actually brought into the belief that sunlight will kill then when really it's their unstable powers reacting to that mindset. They can likewise float without have to turn into a bat, garlic acts as an allergen to them due to their heighten senses but otherwise isn't fatal, and crosses don't do a thing to them since, as it's later revealed, that was just the work of religious zealots that spun it out of control in fiction. They have missing reflections but just for their exposed parts of their body, meaning clothes will still reflect in mirrors, though digital cameras and camera phones can still capture them. They also don't need to drain their victim when feeding, a small amount of blood will do. In fact, most vampires just hunt as a form of exercise to keep their skills sharp and go out of their way to avoid seriously harming humans.
  • Walking in the Dark: Vampirism can be transferred through taking enough blood to instill infection or feeding vampire blood to someone. Though despite the change, vampires aren't inherently evil and can live normal enough lives if they wish (Most of the conflict in the comic comes from rouge vampires who see themselves superior to humans and a councils efforts in trying to stop them). They have the usual red eyes and pointy ears, though can hide the latter to blend in. Sunlight is fatal but they can get around with sunglasses and hats. Also a supposed history lesson on them reveals that the vampirism started from a curse a bat god placed on a tribe to die in sunlight and the queen of such had begged other animal spirits for help to counteract it, giving them strength and speed and mutating it into what we see at the present day of the comic.
  • Undead Ed: They have glowing eyes and pointed ears and it's pointed out the reason they have no reflection is because their souls are cloaked to keep the Angel of Death from claiming them.
  • Being a Hellsing centered webcomic, And Shine Heaven Now, aside from the canon examples of Hellsing, have a few more:
    • Reseda the chordewa, who snuck into Hellsing headquarters in her cat form, just to see how close she could get to Integra before getting caught, and also to find Helena (whom had already died at that point). She then has a friendly spar with Alucard. She later reappears during the Battle of London to help Yomiko (then disguised as Integra) get to the Millennium flagship so she could rescue Anita, and stalls the Captain long enough for Seras to put a Holocaust victim's silver filled tooth inside him.
    • An adze also appears, pretty much long enough for Integra to test out the powers she got from drinking tea made from flowers of Perun.
    • Vampire Hunter D also appears in the final storyline, with rather a different personality than his canon appearance, which is understandable, since at this point, he's still a child. And also Integra and Seras's son. Somehow.
  • Monster Soup: Luke exists in a world of Vegetarian Vampires, and is locked up when he insists on behaving like a classical vampire and feeding on humans. Also, there's this Your Vampires Suck bit when he first meets the rest of the main cast:
    Amanita: (brandishes a crucifix) Stay back!
    Luke: Someone like you should know more about vampires. Crosses don't work.
    Amanita: (pulls out a star of David)
    Luke: This is going to get old really fast.


How well does it match the trope?
