Voting Rules
Vote up the vampires you really, truly would not want to stumble upon alone at night.

If you're looking for extremely powerful vampires in anime, then you've come to the right place. Vicious bloodsuckers come in all forms, even anime form. Some of them wield weapons, some of them use magic, and most of them are immortal, but all of these vampires seriously slay when it comes to a challenge. This list is full of the most fearsome and brutal blood fiends in anime, so vote up the vampire characters that are truly vicious, and vote down the ones that don't really do much justice for the vampire race.

These powerful psychic, telekinetic, supernatural beings dominate in anime. After being blessed (or cursed) with vampirism, their strength grows along with their everlasting age, sometimes to the point where their abilities make them a bit too powerful. If vampires are supposed to be immortal, these anime vampires surely prove that they can withstand the tests of time... and the occasional vampire hunter.

  • D - Vampire Hunter D

    Just because D is only half-vampire doesn't mean he isn't tough. His immortality, superhuman strength, and excellent marksmanship with basically every known weapon make this character from Vampire Hunter D a force to be reckoned with. His connection to the Sacred Ancestor has given him superior vampire abilities, even when compared to pureblood vampires.

    Cadis Etrama di Raizel - Noblesse: Awakening

    Cadis Etrama di Raizel, a.k.a. Rai from Noblesse: Awakening, is as cool as he is powerful. Rai has strong telekinetic powers which he can use to restrain foes and break tough objects, like chains. Mind control and extreme spiritual energy make him nearly invincible. His only real weakness is that his power comes with a catch: it drains his life force every time he uses it.
