"Vampire" (ヴァンパイア Vanpaia) is an archetype of Zombie-Type monsters. Initially, they were only supported by the manga-only card "Blood Curse" and the manga effect of "Overpowering Eye", but Shadow Specters revealed new "Vampire" support.
In Shadow Specters, the archetype is supported by the Field Spell Card "Vampire Empire", which lets you destroy 1 card on the field by using the effect of "Vampire Lord", "Vampire Lady" or "Vampire Grace". "Vampire Grace" also Special Summon itself from the Graveyard when a Level 5 or higher Zombie-Type monster(s) is Special Summoned to your side of the field by the effect of a Zombie-Type monster. "Vampire Sorcerer" lets you add 1 Zombie-Type monster or 1 "Vampire" Spell/Trap Card from your Deck to your hand and you can Normal Summon 1 DARK "Vampire" monster without Tributing by banishing this card from your Graveyard. "Shadow Vampire" Special Summons 1 DARK "Vampire" monster from your hand or Deck (e.g. "Vampire Lord") to easily summon their new archetype-specific Xyz Monster "Vampire Bram the Edeleritter", who can Special Summon 1 monster in your opponent's Graveyard to your side of the field once per turn by detaching 1 Xyz Material.
The original name of "Vampire Orchis" is 「-ブラッド・オーキス-」 (Blood Orchis) and the original name of "Vampire Koala" is 「きゅうけつコアラ」 (Bloodsucking Koala), so they are both excluded from cards that supports "Vampire" monsters. However, "Red-Moon Baby" is part of this archetype because its original name is 「ヴァンパイア ・ ベビー 」 (Vampire Baby).
