Vampires [1] are Revenants, the undead, [2] and are solid manifestations.

HistoryEdit

DescriptionEdit

Vampires are one of the few supernatural beings who, apart from fangs, look mostly human in appearance. Much like other supernatural beings, they can exist for centuries but are dependent on a regular supply of blood to stop the aging process. They can transform into bats and convert humans into new vampires by biting them. They are also allergic to sunlight, [3] garlic, and holy items. [4] Vampires may need an invitation to enter a home. [5]

The Real GhostbustersEdit

The Ghostbusters' first encounter with Vampires involved a vampire civil war in the isolated town of Lupusville. Count Vostok, believed he was the last vampire, and later hired the Ghostbusters to deal with a supernatural problem plaguing him.

While investigating Barrow Wights, Ray Stantz stated Vampires need permission to enter a house.

Count Von Blukenporken was a Vampire in ghost form. He attempted to re-corporealize himself by feeding on the Ectoplasm of ghosts.

Extreme GhostbustersEdit

In 1997, the Extreme Ghostbusters encountered a nest laughter Vampires that took on the forms of clowns in order to encourage their victims to laugh. They traced the nest to Coney Island. With Egon Spengler's help, the "queen" was trapped and all victims were restored to normal.

PowersEdit

Vampires have the ability to transform into bats. Vostok has shown the ability to project energy from his eyes. A Vampire's reflection does not appear in mirrors. They also seem to have a natural aversion to gold and silver. While Gregor presented gold coins and assorted trinkets, Vostok removed all gold and silver from his castle.

The primary weakness of the Vampire is sunlight. Proton Streams simulating the spectrum of sunlight can disintegrate a Vampire. [6] They also can't cross over running water. [7]

Vampires put out psychokinetic energy like a ghost and can be detected on the P.K.E. Meter. [8]

ClassificationEdit

Egon referred to Vampires as Revenants, a term for undead entities.
