And the King of all vampires, hands down, is Dracula. Dracula has been a villain in different mediums since the Bram Stoker days, going from books to TV to the countless Dracula themed movies throughout history.
And then there is the Castlevania series. Though we do get a bit of a difference in protagonists with the Belmont clan instead of the Van Helsings, it is essentially the same story: kill Dracula."
