What follows is a list of known vampires, all vampires listed here are native to the Earth-616 dimension unless otherwise stated. Further anyone exanguinated by a vampire potentially may have become a vampire also. Dracula has at many times fed off people to add to his vampire legions. However, in many cases they may not have risen or were staked or their bodies destroyed before they could be risen. This list only contains vampires who have risen from death and operated as a vampire only.
While many of these vampires were destroyed by conventional means, many have fates that are unrevealed. Ultimately they would have all been destroyed when the Montesi Formula when it was recited in Doctor Strange Vol. 2 #62. When the spell was broken, most vampires were restored to life, including (theoretically) many of the vampires listed below.
