Surprisingly, blood suckers aren't as common in video games as you might expect. They might appear as a generic type of enemy, and of course there are a few of them in the Castlevania series. We collected some of these vampires, paying attention to leave out those who like to carry people on their backs.


Bodhi (Baldur's Gate 2: Shadows Of Amn)

This former elf is the scariest thing ever created that has anything to do with elves. Geez those random entries!

Demitri Maximoff (DarkStalkers: The Night Warriors)

Probably the only vampire in the world that looks like Phoenix Wright on steroids.

Vamp (Metal Gear Solid series)

Even if he is not a real one, he's got all the abilities—and the right to be on this list as well.

Vincent Valentine (Final Fantasy VII)

Just as Vamp, Vincent is rather a result of an experiment than a natural born vampire, but the similarities are quite obvious.

Rachel Alucard (BlazBlue series)

An arrogant vampire, who—according to her bio—even likes tea. She probably has high blood pressure.

Vorador (Legacy Of Kain series)

The main characers Kain or Raziel should have been the obvious choices, but Vorador—who also has a major role—looks just so much cooler.

Alucard and Dracula (Castlevania series)

At least these legendary guys bring back something from the classic Dracula look.

Jeanette Voerman (Vampire: The Masquerade - Bloodlines)

Both Vampire games—Redemption and Bloodlines—are full of vampires (sounds incredible, right?) but the only possible pick is this memorable NPC from the second game.

Jericho Cross (Darkwatch)

The weird western-steampunk hybrid style, mixed with classic vampire lore made this character (and the game!) really exciting.

Rayne (BloodRayne)

One of those female vampires that look badass rather than cute—and there's absolutely no problem with that.
