While vampires may wreak havoc in the fictional world, there's no shortage of professional vampire hunters who know exactly how to send the undead back to where they came. Equipped with everything from guns to garlic, these hunters are proficient with the mystical arts, so if you ever have a vampire problem, you know exactly who to call.

These vampire hunters may be tough, but they all have their unique strengths and weaknesses. Buffy is a seemingly normal high school student who wishes she could have a normal life instead of spending all of her free time combating the forces of evil. Then there’s Blade, who is a half-vampire daywalker who is immune to all vampire bites. While this list of vampire hunters features characters from all different backgrounds, one thing is certain: If you are a vampire, then you’ll want to steer clear of everyone in this list.

This list of vampire hunters has some of the coolest butt-kickers in television and film. Let us know who you think is the toughest of them all by voting up your favorites. Just make sure you vote while the sun is still up and the bloodsuckers are kept at bay.
